“Great location, beautiful apartment”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I chose this apartment after extensive research because of the combination of location, interior and canal views. We weren't disappointed with any aspect. I stayed there for 5 nights with my two children (5 and 7) and my parents. It was a family trip conveniently around the time of the Venice marathon in which I was competing, as well as half term for my children.

As my father can't walk that far, I wanted somewhere that was close to the vaporetto, San Marco and Rialto and the apartment meets all that. The S.maria Formosa square nearby is beautiful and so are the surrounding canals. Sitting in the apartment watching the gondolas pass by was just lovely. The apartment itself is very comfortable. There was plenty of room for the five of us and the beds were very comfortable, although my parents noted that the master bed is very squeaky! The second two bedrooms are not huge but plenty of room overall and they are only for sleeping. We did use the kitchen a bit for some simple meals to allow for time differences and it was well equipped. Everything worked well, apart from some of the lights in the ensuite going out, but that was only a minor issue.

Really loved the building and decor, especially the limed beams and chandeliers in the living area. We flew in separately and Truly Venice arranged water taxis for both of us, which was a fantastic way to arrive in and depart from Venice. As we had a late flight out the day after the marathon we were also able to get a late check out (as no one else was booked in that day) which meant we could really enjoy our last day without trying to find somewhere to get out of the wind and rest our legs (especially me!)

Enrico and Daniela were both very helpful and made the whole experience very smooth. We did get one very polite complaint from downstairs about the children running about, which I felt was a little harsh as it was literally for about 5 minutes on one day and they always took their shoes off the minute they came in the door. We also live in an apartment at home so are very conscious of noise traveling. However it didn't spoil our holiday in any way.

The wifi was great and the sky tv which allowed many children shows in English as well as movies was also a bonus, when everyone was tired from walking. We had perfect autumn weather, cool and crisp with bright sun and deep blue skies, apart from one day, which definitely helped.

For anyone doing the marathon, the location is an easy walk from the finish so perfect for that and to get out to Tronchetto for the bus to Stra in the morning. I would definitely recommend staying in an apartment when in Venice as it felt more personal and of course is very convenient when travelling with children as I could enjoy time with my parents while they were in bed without moving from hotel room to hotel room. And Marco Polo would be the perfect apartment to choose.

“Fabulous apartment, fabulous location, fabulous holiday!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The Marco Polo apartment was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and everything in it was a pleasure to use. The location was brilliant- close enough to walk to all the sights easily and yet just far enough away from the Grand Canal to be peaceful. The balcony overlooking one of the canals was a delight, especially when a singing gondolier went past!
We had a brilliant holiday here and would love to come again.

“Perfect Week”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment is well located, clean and well appointed. The canal view was just what we expected but the serenading gondoliers were an added bonus. The living area is bright and sunny and was a good size for our family of five. The bedrooms, although quite small and dark, were adequate for our needs. The third bedroom and fifth bed is quite snug , probably not suitable for a large adult but fine for a child or young teenager. We cooked at home in the evening, having been out all day sightseeing and enjoying the cafe culture, and the cooking facilities were more than adequate to prepare a good meal. The supermarket is close by but there is also fresh produce from a local butcher and a fruit and vegetable stall readily at hand. All in all we would highly recommend the Marco Polo and will be back without hesitation.

“Lovely apartment, great location”
Reviewed 31 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Truly Venice were delightful to work with in booking our 4 night stay in Venice. We were hoping for a well located canal view apartment and the Marco Polo was exactly this. The apartment was lovely inside, air conditioned and spacious. It overlooked a small canal which was frequented by gondolas. Somewhat noisy but fortunately these stopped once it got dark. The location is great, just down a small lane from Campo Formosa which is only 5 mins walk to St Marks. Highly recommended for groups of 4-6.
