We very much liked the location of this property. Check in was a very easy. Since the main reason for our visit was to attend the biennale the location could not have been better.
A few things that could be done to make this property better would be to add more light to the living room. We rarely used it because of the lack of light. Also both bedrooms could use an upgrade on their mattresses. We found the beds to be lumpy and uncomfortable for sleeping. The shower was excellent and having a washer there was very convenient. The book with a list of things to do and see and restaurants choices was spot on.
I find quite difficult to understand your review: 3 stars out of 5 because the mattresses, and the light in the living room, while all the rest was "spot on", "Excellent" and "could not have been better".
For the lights in the living room, you should just give us a call and possibly we could have helped with an abajour or stronger lightbulb in
one of the 7 lights in the room.
Regarding the mattresses, they have never had complaints, possibly you needed a firmer kind of bed, but we need to have a type of mattresses that can meet a broader market of guests . Again a call or an e-mail and we could have brought something to make it more comfortable.
Hoping to have you soon soon back as guest of one of the Red House apartments
Great location and very clean
Three went to Venice
This is the second time we have visited this apartment. This year it had wi-fi and some other minor improvements. It is in such a great position - 10 minutes to St Mark's, yet in the residential area. There is a baker's across the calle and a butcher's on the opposite corner, both excellent and friendly.
The apartment is comfortable, clean and homely and Marco and Gaia made checking in and out very easy.
We had a wonderful time. Thank you.
The second time we have stayed here. This time we took a friend with us. Brilliant location, giving the best of both worlds. Only a few minutes from the Riva degli Schiavoni, yet away from the tourist areas. Great local shops (butcher and baker only steps from the door). Perfect if you want to self cater, but also not far from good restaurants.
The apartmet is comfortably furnished and very clean. The owners are welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful, without being overbearing.
Really good value for money. Would recommend to anyone wanting a stay close to the heart of Venice but looking for something more Venetian and less touristique. We shall be back.
NB you need to be able to manage the 2 flights of stairs.
What a great apartment to stay in while visiting Venice. My husband and I and our two friends had such a great time! The apartment was very comfortable and great to come home to and the end of a long day. The kitchen was well stocked and very clean.
We found the location to be excellent, very peaceful in the evenings, and just around the corner from the best restaurant in Venice called Al Covo!!!! We would definitely come back again!
We liked everything about this flat. Spotlessly clean and well-equipped, in a convenient area for sight-seeing yet with a local feel about it. Good shops and restaurants close by especially the butcher and bakery. Customer service was excellent and we would certainly recommend your company and hope to return but maybe to a slightly larger flat. If we have to raise a criticism it is that the second bedroom was small for 2 adults with not much storage space but we overcame that!
