Great apartment in great location in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Mario's apartment. It was only a few minutes walk from the boat stop and St Marks square but far enough away from the crazy crowds there to be quiet and calm. We had our best meal at Osteria Oliva Nera, which was around the corner from Mario's street. (Get reservations).

Marco was great to deal with and Silvia greeted us at the boat and escorted us to the apartment. She explained everything we needed to know and gave us tips of things to do and see.

The apartment was very roomy, the bed very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you need, including a clothes washer.

Lots of steps! But once you've carried the suitcase up the first time, it's a breeze. Nice lighted staircase with huge skylight at top. We would definitely stay here again if visiting Venice again.

Venezia Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Paola was a great guide! However, I think a simple map would have got us to the apartment. She met us as arranged; provided a mini tour of neighbourhood streets; walked through flat to explain details & answer any questions. Mario's place was ideally located and was VERY clean & renovated nicely (exactly as seen in pics). We really enjoyed coming 'home' to this place! Bed was very comfy after a long walking day! I would not hesitate to re-book in the future or refer to family & friends! Venezia was everything we expected and Mario's flat did NOT disappoint these Canadians!

Thanks eh!!

Great apartment, but oh, those steps.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely modern apartment in a very old building. Definitely as advertised. (Thanks, Silvia, for arranging the taxi to the airport!) Good location, close to St. Mark's, grocery store, good restaurants. Well equipped, everything necessary for a short stay, including coffee, sugar, salt., etc. Air conditioning a real plus as Venice is hot in July. My fault for not reading the description more closely, but the climb of 61 steps from the street, especially with a heavy suitcase, was very difficult for these 82 year old legs. Wonderful for the younger set, but seniors should take note. If not for the steps, I would give it 5 stars.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is at the top of three flights of stairs in an ancient building down a tiny alley. It is romantic and stylish with atmospheric views over the the street below at the front and rooftops at the back. We appreciated the provision of tea, coffee, sugar and oil and vinegar. The location is perfect, actually very quiet although so close to shops, restaurants, St Mark's and the hubbub. Mario and Paola, our guide were extremely pleasant and professional. We hope to return to this magical city soon and we would certainly stay here again. Many thanks.
