nice, very convenient, but with some problems

  • 3 of 5

there is good news and bad news. first the good: you couldn't find better hosts than ilaria and marco. they made use feel very welcome, starting at rialto, with a free wine. they were responsive to any questions and concerns. the unit itself is very nice and comfortable. the kitchen is adequate to cooking, but not baking. the large bedroom is great, spacious and comfortable. the smaller room is just fine. the bathroom is large and comfortable. my wife and I especially liked the large double sink. there were towels aplenty. the location is great. an easy walk takes you to san marco, and many other attractions. all amenities are nearby, including an outdoor greengrocer a few steps away; a bakery next door; a laundry a few steps; several coffe bars, restaurants, a supermarket, a pharmacy, a great bookstore, and even a very nice gondola stop. and now the bad news: the easy bad news is that there is not enough hot water flow to take a bath. I was not able even to fill the tub 1/5 full. a shower was adequate but not terrific. the hard bad news is the commercial bakery just across the 5 foot stone lane, just across from the unit. note that venice is composed of stone canyons; narrow lanes surrounded by tall stone buildings. therefore, sounds echo and are amplified. the bakers start at 11 pm and work all night. unfortunately, they leave their door open, right across from the unit. therefore, all night you will hear the clanging and scraping of pans; the banging of whatever; the arguments of the men. if they would keep their door closed, it might be ok. but, when I politely asked them to close the door they were sort of rude and indicated that it has to be open to help cool the pans of baked goods. that's fine for them, but not fine for guests of this unit. even with the shutters closed, the noise was a significant issue.

so, overall, I really liked the unit. I suspect ilaria will take care of the bathroom flow problem. however, the commercial noise problem seems

insoluble. for many people this unit will be very nice. but for light sleepers, it's better to look elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest I am sorry you had some problems with the bakery. the noise , as you said, happens when they have their door open. I know you decided to sleep in the living room, and the noise can be heard from there because it is on the ground floor. I never recommend to sleep in the living room. The only way to avoid the noise is to close the shutters at the window.I lived in that apartment for 6 years after starting to rent is and I heard no noise with the shutters closed. The hot water works well. it was just a problem of pressure while you were there. We just fixed it when you left

Very comfortable,clean and terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four adults traveling together and this apartment was very comfortable. The location was perfect for getting out and seeing the attractions as well as having a bakery close by, grocery store, many restaurants and shops. The owner was always helpful with answering any questions we had. We had a few hot days during our visit so the air conditioning in the apartment made us very comfortable. We even had our college age granddaughter vist with us for several nights and the space worked out well,we all were very comfortable. We would highly recommend this apartment.

Magical, Clean, great location, easy transaction!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment! It was very clean, well stocked, plenty of linens, and the three stories gave us plenty of room for 5 people. The beds and cots were comfy and bed linens were great. Everything worked magnificently well and we were very happy with the central location of the apartment. Ilaria was accessible and check in and out were easy. Highly recommend!!

Great property, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of three and our daughter is four years old. The property was perfect for our requirements. Clean, spacious and well equipped and maintained.

The smaller room on the top floor was perfect for our daughter and the main bedroom was a good size.

Having the living space downstairs also made it much easier to keep our daughter entertained whilst we planned our days etc.

Lots of nice places nearby to pick up fresh food and perfectly positioned to access all of the main areas of Venice by foot without ever being far away.

Highly recommended and felt like very good value for money in a place certainly not noted for being such.
