Good apartment in good location
Great location - convenient to the train station, bus office, and taxi stands - so you don't have to drag luggage through the sidewalks of Venice. Safe, gated area. Nice and helpful apartment manager.
Hi John, thank you for your visit and to let the apartment in perfet conditions, clean and tidy !
Pros: close to St.Lucia train station, Vaporetto boats stops, shopping area includes two supermarkets, various small shops, taverns and bakeries. Place has max occupancy for 5 people: one sofa bed on the first floor , queen and twin beds on the second floor. Modern furniture, nice small kitchen and washer (no dryer) on the first floor.
Cons: only local Italian TV channels, not a single one in English. No local phone. We stayed for 8 days and our sheets/towels were not changed, no cleaning for 8 days. We contacted the property management twice for two different reasons. They promised to call us back , but they never did. Place is a little claustrophobic because it has tiny narrow windows up to the ceiling. Minimum toilet paper and one garbage bag: we needed to buy extra paper and bags.
Hello Yelena, I'm very surprised to read your review !
First of all I didn't receive any phone call from you and any e-mail !
I would been happy to help you as me or my collaborators are there everyday
For example in the apartment there is satellite TV, with a lot of english channel, if you asked me I could show you how to use the TV remote control....as if you asked me more towels, I could provide them !!!
About cleaning, as we are not an Hotel but rental apartment, for the italian rules, we cannot do cleaning during our guests stay, but if you asked me I could provide a phone number to call somebody
It's a pity you didn't contact me as I could solve every of those little troubles......
A nice tidy house set in a quiet area of Venice a short walk/boat ride to the major landmarks
A couple a of teething problems at the start (slow internet, lack of cups) but they were sorted out on the first day by Frederike. Major boat stop 5 mins away at the station which was very useful. We bought a 48 pass and traveled everywhere by boat including the islands. Food and drink much cheaper when you get away from the major tourist sites.
Had a great time.
Great and quiet location with easy access to Vaporetto and close to the train station.
We loved arriving at the train station and walking just 5 minutes to get to the apartment. Fabiano was an attentive owner and had one of his colleagues greet us and give us all the information we needed. Prior to our arrival, any time I had any questions, Fabiano was quick to respond. Right beside the train station is a Vaporetto stand which makes it easy to get to all the major attractions, should you choose not to walk. We loved the fact that the location was quiet and away from busy attractions, and yet easy to get to them when we chose to do so. Thank you Fabiano for a great stay.
Nice to be reasonably close to train station. Comfortable apartment, everything worked. Was quite location, were only really there to sleep which was great. Weren't any windows for natural light on main floor. They were flexible with our check in schedule which we changed , which we appreciated. Communication was good. Manager was there to meet us, took time to explain things, make suggestions which was nice.
Fabiano was an excellent host - even met us at the station and assisted with our luggage! Apartment was clean, comfortable and convenient. Away from the hustle and noise of the main streets in Venice, but still very close to all of the sites. Would definitely stay here again.
