Mercerie, the heart of Venice : The apartment is very close to the Mercerie ( just back to the corner). Mercerie cut the old city centre into two parts, connecting Piazza San Marco to Rialto. This is Venice’s main through way, the heart of the city’s commercial trade since ancient times when the precious fabric shops stayed open until late. The Mercerie are divided into three parts: Mercerie dell’oroloio that starts from Piazza San Marco, Mercerie de San Zulian and Mercerie di San Salvador, that come out right on Campo San Salvador, next to Campo San Bortolo. All the Mercerie are full of shops and boutiques of all kinds: from luxury jewellers such as Cartier and Rolex to fashion boutiques such as Sergio Rossi for shoes and Krizia for clothes. The apartment is in historical building in San Salvador square, where there is the entrance. This is an important site in Venice, you can find it in some important ancient paintings, for example: ' L'ingresso di un procuratore di San Marco' by Gabriel Bella (1779)

Carnival of venice: The Venice Carnival is the largest and most important Venetian festival, an appreciated cocktail of tradition, entertainment, history and transgression in a unique city, a festival that attracts thousands of people from around the world each year. The Carnival has very old origins. This congregation of masked people, called Venice Carnival, began in the 15th century, but the tradition can be traced back to the beginning of the 14th Century.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to stay in Venice, look no further. This place is amazing - full of history, in a perfect location, steps from the Rialto Bridge and nearest vaporetto stop. My family of six (two adults and four children under eight) stayed here for three nights and couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. The apartment is on the top floor of the building and has windows overlooking a public square below, which provided fantastic entertainment for my wife and I in the evenings after putting our children to bed. I can't say enough about the apartment, you'll have to experience it for yourself. It does have AC, which was a blessing considering the heat wave that rolled through while we were visiting. Sebastiano was an excellent host - he was very prompt and thorough and gave us excellent advice on restaurants, markets, etc. Overall, highly recommend!

Great location, air-conditioned! A perfect base to explore Venice

  • 4 of 5

Convenient to the major attractions with a slight downside that it's noisy. Since we sleep with earplugs it wasn't a problem. Fourth floor walkup (yes, that's the 5th floor fellow Americans, 69 steps) affords a nice view of the area with a bit of the Grand Canal. It feels like the building has been there for centuries with the uneven sloping floors.

The air conditioning was a godsend during our hot muggy stay.

This missed out on the fifth star because of the the master bed which is just a sofa bed - sagging and uncomfortable - and a shower that flipped between blistering and cold. We sort of found a setting on the water heater that helped but didn't stay long enough to confirm that it was resolved.

Sebastiano was responsive and eager to take care of our needs. That said one should never arrive to find no toilet paper. Other than that the apartment was clean and comfortable.

Can’t beat this place

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don’t do it justice. It was a charming place and we loved our stay. Perfect location!!! We had my two toddlers and my father with us and it was comfortable with room to spare. The host was super helpful and had a crib ready for my one year old. So close to Rialto and water bus and San Marco square. We loved Doges palace (also right there). Tons of restaurants near by, but use the hosts’ recommendations. There are a lot of stairs if that’s a problem for you but we loved it because of the view. I honestly wasn’t expecting that much but it was the best part of our two week Eurotrip.

Great location, 50 m from Ralto bridge.

  • 4 of 5

4th floor walk-up is very charming, with its crooked floors and comfy chairs. Our host was very accommodating. We dinged it a star for less-than-comfy the beds, two little twins and a pull-out couch, but I slept just fine after wearing myself out exploring the back streets and tourist sites all day.

Perfect apartment and Sebastiano was extremely helpful

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a 4 minute walk from the Rialto bridge, when we arrived we were met by Sebastiano's colleague at the Alilaguna Waterbus stop and taken to the apartment, it has air-conditioning units in the lounge and one of the bedrooms and a fan in the other bedroom, which even in September we used at the end of the day when we got back.

It is on the 3rd floor as others have mentioned, but stairs were not a problem even with our 15kg suitcases.

The location is fantastic, the Grand Canal is at the end of the street opposite the lounge window, Rialto Bridge is 4 mins away as it the Vaperetto (waterbus) & Alilaguna (Water bus to airport). Saint Marks Square is a 10 minute walk, maybe 15 in the height of summer when there are more people there. We also ventured as far as Constitution bridge and the Jewish area and again these are only a 30 minute & 20 minute direct walk away, although Venice is best seen by wandering around rather than taking a direct route

Sebastiano (the owner) is extremely helpful and speaks perfect English in his emails.

He told us which Waterbus to get from the airport and how long it takes and costs which was extremely helpful when we arrived.

But better still I asked about restaurants and he gave me a great list of fantastic restaurants, of the 5 nights we were there and needed a restaurant we spent 4 nights in places he recommended and 1 night in one we were passing, his were great and the 1 we chose was very poor. We went back to one of his a 2nd time.

So do ask him to recommend places, especially the Bacari, which are very Venetian and we would never of found them without his knowledge. Food in them is fantastic and very reasonably priced.
