Review 5692: Venietiam, Ca'Mocenigo on Canal Grande
1bed/1bath apartment in San Marco, Venice
January 2014, 4 days
We rented this apartment for just a few days as our usual one was booked for our first few days in Venice and we wanted to try somewhere in San Marco before moving to our usual haunts!
The agency were really easy to deal with and very prompt in responding. They have both credit card and PayPal available for all payments - the deposit, final payment and security deposit (which was quite large - but which was returned promptly after we left).
Arrival all went fine with someone meeting us at the nearby San Samuele vaporetto stop. The apartment is close by, down a long calle - but no bridges. However if you can't get a number 2 vaporetto (depending on what time you arrive they may not be running) and therefore need to get off at San Angelo there are a few small bridges to negotiate. If you were arriving by water taxi there's a dock right at the door.
The main reason for booking this apartment was the Grand Canal views - and they are absolutely spectacular - with floor level windows providing views up and down the Grand Canal and across to San Toma.
The apartment is ground floor - but raised up three steps so clear of any usual acqua alta. It's very comfortable with a large bedroom with king sized bed, small walk-in wardrobe with both hanging and shelf space and very large and comfortable living room. The bathroom has just been re-done with a big shower (current photo on the website is of the old bathroom) and good lighting.
However - the kitchen is very, very small - really just a shelf with a small sink and space to make coffee and snacks. You would struggle to cook more than a simple pasta. The photo on the website of the kitchen is the entire kitchen.
The apartment comes with excellent WiFi and satellite TV (although the TV is in the bedroom).
We enjoyed our few days here - and absolutely loved the views!
