Vacation rentals in Italy (villas, farms, estates, agriturismo, apartments)
Review 3280: Italy-Accom, Tintoretto I
2bed/2bath apartment in Cannaregio, Venice
Dec 22-25, 2007, 4 nights
Nice location - 15 minute walk from San Marco square, 10 minutes from train station, reasonably quiet area. Second floor of a quiet apartment close to bridge and piazza which accounted for pedestrian noises as apartment is corner unit.
Walking distance to everything, but watch the opening hours so you aren't left hungry.
Older building. Good size rooms. Lots of noise from pedestrian traffic, so light sleepers should use ear plugs, but this is probably a problem in all Venice apartments that face onto bridges or piazzas.
Furniture in good shape, unit was clean. Enough chairs. Well equipped kitchen. Bathroom had a shower but no shower curtain (I have advised owners).
Everything comfortable, bathroom good size, lots of storage. No TV.
Well equipped kitchen for cooking full meals.
Problems or Bonuses
Noise from street and bridge so used ear plugs.
Agency and Representatives (and price)
Met owner in shop downstairs of apartment, helpful, spoke English. Apartment met expectations of description on Internet.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
Yes - but always best to book early to get best deals in Venice!
Things to do in this area
All shops, restaurants small butcher, bakery, grocery etc. much cheaper than in more touristy areas of Venice. Not all store owners spoke English so best to know a little Italian if you have specific needs.
