Ca' Vittoria is a flat located in Sestiere Cannaregio. It is furnished with elegance, convenience and taste. In all the details one can note the attention that the owners have had to create a welcoming environment and an apartment equipped with all comforts to make guests feel at home. Ca' Vittoria is on the second floor of an historic building dating back to 1500 and inhabited by the Count Guicciardini. The building is fully restored and is located in a picturesque Venetian alley near the Jewish Museum of Venice, the Ghetto and the Venice Casino. The apartment can accommodate up to 6 people and has a kitchen, living room with a comfortable double sofa bed, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. Ca' Vittoria is ideal for a family who wants to spend a vacation in Venice, or for friends who want to spend an enjoyable weekend.
We arrived late and the person who was supposed to meet us had been waiting even though we told our contact that we would arrive after 3:00 p.m. and would call when we arrived. The young man, Alessandro, was so rude and insulting that if I had not paid a deposit I would have left him on the street and found a hotel. When he and I arrived, since he would not wait for my 84-year old companion who I had to leave at the foot of a bridge, the place was dirty (I took photos but do not know how to attach them to this review). The kitchen sink had old food in it, the shower stall was moldy and there were dust bunnies around the house. The covers on the furniture in the living room were so dirty we never even sat in there. It was a real disappointment for me and I do not know what someone else would have done who did not speak Italian since the young man was not forthcoming at all. I was very upset with my experience, especially when I returned to the house on our last day, after taking my friend to the train station with her luggage to wait while I returned to get mine and found the cleaning lady in the apartment with the TV blasting away. I couldn't understand why they were so quick to get the place cleaned (it was not yet 11:00 a.m.) when it was so dirty when we arrived. I will be happy to send photos when I figure out how to send them from my tablet.
We had a good time at the apartment. Checking in and leaving were a little obnoxious, though. We missed an important appointment because our check-in person made us wait an hour at a boat station. Then, before we were supposed to leave, men came in and started shoving things around to remove all the bed linen and towels. It was hard to pack up with them pushing things around.
Other than that, the place itself is well situated and very nice. It's quiet, on the end of an alley right on a quiet canal.
Stayed at the apartment 2 nights and was in a harry to leave…
We arrived to Venice before checked in time and was promised to meet with assistant who will guide us to the apartment to drop of luggage earlier … assistant was late for 1hr... not a good start for the day…
Considering we are 2 families with 16 years old daughters and apartment was listed as 2 bedroom sleeps 6 –each bedroom had 1 double bed and in one of the bedroom was 2 foldable beds, but there is no room in the apartment to unfold them!! Our girls has to sleep together on foldable sofa in the leaving room, which was very unsteady and mattress was falling down on the floor on one side of the sofa at the middle of the night. In addition after assistant left we realized that for 2 foldable beds was only 1 set of linen provided ??
There is no trash can in the bathroom and no shower caddy or shelf in shower, so get ready to hold your soup in one hand while taking shower with other. In addition do not forget to bring trash can liner with you (only one provided when you arrive in the kitchen).
Same with the keys - only 1 set for all.
Despite it’s good location, this place should be better prepared for the travelers.
