CHARMING & ELEGANT APARTS IN THE MOST CENTRAL VENICE - UNIQUE

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in San Marco - Atmosphere Aparts

Refined aparts just behind Saint-Mark square - Hidden&quiet charming corner

Ask the Owner for a full brochure of every apart.

Part of a XVI Cent. finely restored building, in the heart of the most central and elegant part of Venice, we propose a sophisticated and comfortable group of aparts, Atmosphere Aparts.

The building access is from a wellknown XV Cent. private courtyard (Corte Zorzi, unique) sheltering the aparts from every possible noise and letting an agreable (and unusual, in Venice) brightness to every ambience.

Finely furnished and perfectly maintained these three aparts, named Aurora, Hydra and Lyra, are on the same floor, can be combined and offer the best getaway for sight-seeing, as they are in the best position, few steps behind San Marco Square (less than 1 minute) but absolutely quiet as first, they are

not on a massive touristic direction, they are sheltered by the private courtyard then.

In this way guests can profit of their whole stay without wasting precious time with transports, everything is around them, and equally when they stop to visit they have a comfortable, quiet and charming accommodation to easily come back rest and self-catering.

Aurora and Hydra are twin 1 bedroom aparts, I would say 2 hotel Deluxe suites, perfectly equipped

for self-catering. They also have a quality sofa-bed for additional guests.

Lyra is a unique 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms apart (bath with shower on suite). It can accommodate up to 5 people (single sofa-bed in the living).

All the aparts are equipped with Wi-Fi Internet 24h, Air-conditioning, LCD Satellite TV & DVD player,

microwaves, clothes washer and every staff for an easy self-catering.

Charming views from every windiw.

Finally just outside the private courtyard guests will meet Campo San Gallo, a small and nice venetian

square with its theatre (nice English language spectacles on Venetian history) and open-air cafè

where u can have quick breakfast/lunch or just a coffee before starting your visits.

Great location, beautiful apartment, very good service

  • 5 out of 5
This place is amazing!! Super clean, comfortable and stylish . Its in a great location close to everything but you still feel like a local. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Venice. We can't wait to go back. Also a coffee shop right on the corner which was a nice little bonus.

Great location in Venice

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed at the apartment for two nights. The location was great. We were met at the boat and taken to the apartment when we arrived. The internet worked great. The photos of the apartment fairly represent what we found. The apartment is located on the second floor and requires you to carry your bags up the stairs (no lift). C

Great location, no internet, different bathroom

  • 3 out of 5
This place is in a good location. They shouldn't advertise as having internet as they don't (unless you go outside down in the courtyard and even there it was one bar). The place was clean. The bathroom is not what is pictured - not even close. Could have used more towels for sure because we had to put them on the floor so we didn't slip down the steps coming out of the shower. Very clean apt. Not much of a kitchen, but we didn't need one. Beds were very firm. Was really quiet and view is nice from a couple of windows.

Need to get internet fixed. We stayed in 4 other VRBOs in Europe and each had really good internet and plenty of towels.

Would recommend this place if they can fix those issues.

Owner's Response: Dear Michelle
Thank you for your feedback
However, as you can read in the next guest's review, the internet connection is perfectly working, so what we advertised is absolutely the truth. If you had problem you would have call our on-site colleague and he would be there in a bit to verify the reason of this lack. It has no sense to come back home and write bad comments on that...As for the bathroom...well of course it is only a bit different as you rented the Aurora unit, not Hydra and the pics published are from the second one. But, in any case, I have to say none had to complain about that and about service, towels provided etc, as our is quite a hotel service, with right number of towels, extra change after 3 nights stay (not so usual in self-catering apartments...)

Simply beautiful

  • 5 out of 5
Perfect location and great value by Venice standards. Water bus stop close by, which was great for arrival and departure. Other than that we were able to get to all main areas by foot. Big plus was that is was far enough away from the touristy spots to be able to unwind. Piazza San Marco literally around the corner was a big positive. Seems to be one of the better places to relax and watch the world go by. Apartment itself is very nice and has all you need for self catering if that's what you prefer. Highly recommend this apartment and needless to say Venice.

Lovely apartment right in the heart of the city

  • 5 out of 5
This is beautiful, clean and elegant and in a really wonderful location. The apartment is truly quiet and they met me at the vaporetto which I greatly appreciated since Venice can be hard to navigate the first few minutes after you arrive. Very professional and first class service. I would return here in a heartbeat .Just few steps (!!!) to San Marco Square and easy walk to Rialto bridge area

Good apartment with some drawbacks

  • 3 out of 5
This apartment has attractive rooms and is in a great location between the Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco. The bed is comfortable and the linens are great. However, there is currently (November 2013) significant restoration and construction work being done on the two adjoining buildings. You can easily reach out and touch the scaffolding that now blocks one of the living room windows, and spoils the view from the other.

The soundproofing between our apartment and the one above is not good. You can hear every footstep on the uncarpeted floor above, as well as the sounds of chairs scraping and drawers opening and closing. Voices carry clearly. One night, our upstairs neighbours came home around 11:00pm and had a meal and great conversation until after 1:00am. We couldn't go to sleep until they went to bed.

The bathroom is not the one shown in the listing. It is smaller, and the shower is at the top of two very slippery ceramic tile steps.

The apartment was not as well equipped as others we have stayed in: salt and pepper, paper towel or napkins, are always appreciated. Minor inconveniences, but they make a difference.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest,
thank u for your kind Review.
First of all my apologizes for works in the nearby: they were public safety manteinance works, oblijed after a huge thuderstorms serie that hit Venice
at the end of October. Public works cannot be avoided, they are for
our guests and other persons safety and they took just a couple of weeks.
Concerning sound proofing well, I can understand people coming from nations
where everythins is completely new are not used to hear noises from other aparts
and they hardly understand that a 700 yo building cannot be, even if perfectly restored, soundproofed as a new construction could be.
This is a characteristic of historical towns as Venice is and quietness is also awarded to people's respect and consciousness.
Furthermore you arrived in a most year's crowded period (1st November celebrations) where every "hole" was filled in.
This is also why u dind't find basics in the apart: we usually provide every apart with a full basic equipement. In that particular year's moment (most crowded, end of season) my associates didn't realize some basics were lacking and u didn't ask for (in the building there is a storeroom full of basics, just to provide it to the aparts, so just a word was enough).
Finally works are gone, soundproof is good for a XV Cent. building (u just were
unlucky with unpolite neightbours) and we will be even more aptentive to basics.
I really thank u for your useful Review letting me the possibility to inform my future guests about some important tips and also ameliorate our service.
Thank you.

The apart is located in a charming XV Cent. perfectly restored Venetian building, just behind Saint-Mark, in an extremely quiet position. In fact this is an hidden Venetian corner and, even if just few steps away from the celebrate Saint-Mark Square, it is out of usual massive touristic paths and still preserves flavours and sensations of times gone by.

Furthermore the building entrance is from Corte Zorzi, a beautiful XV Cent. venetian courtyard (u'll find many pics of it in the Net) sheltering the aparts from any possible noise and letting them extremely quiet and bright.

When u exit from Corte Zorzi u get in Campo San Gallo, a delicious venetian small 'Campo' with an open-air cafè and an intresting theatre (Teatro San Gallo).

Then, few steps away and u get in Saint-Mark square.
