Review 3818: Owner, Ca' Bianca
1bed/1.5bath apartment in Cannaregio, Venice
09/30/2008 - 10/07/2008, 1 week
We were three people, who spent a lovely week in this apartment in Cannaregio. It is a ground-floor apartment, you can actually hear the water in the canals at night.
The double-bed has wonderful mattresses. The sofa-bed is okay (if you need to use it there will only be the kitchen-table for socializing). There is a chair in the kitchen that can convert into a bed for a fifth person. We did not try it. Is is nice, that the two rooms are separate from each other. Very nice bathroom, and second toilet. Everything is new, and you feel, that furniture and interior has been selected with care.
The owner Eva speaks fluent English. She is a very caring person and her help with restaurants is good. With her help, you will never fall into any tourist-trap.
You may get the impression from the pictures on the website, that the apartment is larger that it actually is. There is no real view from the kitchen and living room, which doubles as a second bedroom, only an old wall on the other side of the canal. But being a corner-apartment, it is lots of fun to look right down on canals from all windows in the apartment. From the bedroom and bathroom you have a lovely view. All in all the pictures are very accurate.
There is a full kitchen, but we never used it for more than breakfast, due to all the nice suggestions for lunch and dinner.
We would love to stay there again, and recommend it to everyone. In a city not suited for people with walking disabilities, it is nice to come home to an apartment completely without stairs.
