Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in San Marco - Hydra & Aurora

Tasty aparts just behind Saint-Mark square - Quiet hidden corner

Ask the Owner for a full brochure of each of them.

Part of a XVI Cent. finely restored building, in the heart of the most central and elegant part of Venice, we propose you two lovely twin aparts, named Hydra and Aurora.

A distinctive XVI Cent. private courtyard (Corte Zorzi) allows access to the building letting them a agreable brightness within a perfect noise sheltering (really poor in pedestrian Venice and such position anyway). The location is just behind Saint-Mark square yes, but in a quiet hidden corner where just few tourists arrives. Despite to its fully central position the area is not a massive tourist path and still preserves flavours and sensations of times gone by.

Just out of the courtyard u will find a small nice venetian square, Campo San Gallo, with a pleasant open-air cafè where u can have both a coffee/drink or a light meal, and an even small charming theatre, Teatro San Gallo, where every day u could attend entertaining shows telling about the Great stories of Venice (English language).

Leaving the Campo and crossing a small bridge u will find Bacino Orseolo, the main starting point for every kind of Gondolas tours.

Finally, aparts position and features let Hydra and Aurora a perfect getaway to easily visit the whole Venice without wasting energies precious time with transfers, everything is around u.

Perfect accomodations for both self-catering and visiting Hydra and Aurora are twin de luxe aparts in the beaty hearth of Venice.

Great location, but service was just okay

  • 3 of 5

We are a family of 4; 2 adults & 2 teens. Very happy that a representative met us at the Rialto pier. The directions were excellent on how to get there. But, we should have paid for a porter for our luggage since this apartment was close but we needed to climb over 2 bridges. I wish he would have suggested that! Then, even though it is on the 2nd floor, in Europe that means 3rd floor. It is 51 steps, so it is a challenge! Especially w/luggage.

Making arrangements w/ the owner was not so easy. We had to wire money for the deposit and then when his bank charged him a fee, he wanted to pass it on to us when we owed the balance in person. We didn't pay the fee, but be aware that there are fees from both banks, your bank and his, so figure out what will be the best method of dealing with the wire transfer fees.

About the apartment - it's a great location. Hard to find the first couple of times, but that is Venice. It was clean. The washing machine did not work, it was not even hooked up. That was a big disappointment. On the day we checked in, i texted him to say that the washing machine did not look like it was hooked up. He said that it was, but it clearly was not. He said that he would hook it up, but that would have been the day before we left which was not convenient. There is no dryer, even though it says on the website that there is one. Nobody has dryers in Italy, which is fine. The wifi only worked in one bedroom. On the website, it said that the towels would be replaced after 3 days, but they were not.

Perfect apart - Best position - Quality&quietness

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this apartment. As we were a party of 7, we rented an additional apartment (Hydra) in the adjoining building. Both apartments were exceptional - great amenities and location. The agent was prompt in meeting us and providing a very good orientation to the area. The proximity to St. Mark's Square made the apartment always easy to find in the somewhat complicated layout of Venice, and accessibility to the waterbus lines made it very convenient for getting around Venice.

Finally, two large double quality bedrooms with their own bathroom & shower IN the bedroom (like a Suite), separated by nice living and easy kitchen corner are really comfortable, both for 2 couples and families looking for a smart and really convenient accommodation.

AC, Wi-Fi and satellite TV&DVD in every bedroom, better than a 4 stars hotel!

We highly recommend this apartment and the property managers - very easy to work with.

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.

Located in the hearth of Saint-Mark quarter, Aurora is just 100 meters walking behind Saint-Mark’s square, hidden and quiet corner. The access from a private courtyard and no-exit small Calli around shelter the apart from any possible hustle and bustle. The courtyard exit is on a small “Campo” (venetian square) named Campo San Gallo, where u can find a small open-air cafè and San Gallo Theatre: many exibitions (English language) on Venice’s history and legends. Bacino Orseolo, Gondolas deposit and best departure for any kind of tour, is just behind the apart.
