“Great location but a bit disappointed by the property”

While there were many good things about this rental, I'm afraid to say that overall we were a bit disappointed.

Pros:
-Great location, right next to the Rialto bridge
-Amazing view of the canal
-Lots of room
-Easy and friendly checkin and checkout
-Nicely stocked with kitchen essentials

Cons:
-Noise level from the bar downstairs made sleeping impossible
-Not super clean and a little smelly
-Decor a bit dingy and sad
-Bigger operation means less of a personal touch

I booked this apartment because of the positive review of the company (Truly Venice) and because of the size, which is difficult to find in Venice. The booking procedure was easy. We reserved a water taxi through the company which arrived as promised. I think the main reason we were disappointed it because it is advertised as "luxurious". Although we certainly don't need luxury, we do expect a certain experience when that's what we were told to expect. While the apartment is large and very functional, it is also kind of dingy and a bit sad. There is zero charm or much decor, the lighting is horrible, furniture was very dusty, and the couch had stains. The bathrooms were mildewed and there was a sewage-type smell. I think the fact that this apartment is owned and outfitted by a company makes a huge difference--it felt like a rental property and not a home that someone actually cares about. I would probably stay here again if I needed the space, but not otherwise.

“Absolutely perfect apartment in Venice.”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Traveling with 3 children (5, 7, & 9). The apartment is about 30 feet from the Rialto bridge. The water bus drops you right there too. Looking out the window at the view is just spectacular! So convenient to Rialto bridge, s. Marco square, shops, and restaurants. The apartment is so spacious, very comfortable, and has air conditioning! We were very comfortable, and didn't want to leave. The rental agency was friendly and professional. They made our check-in & out very easy. Highly recommend for everyone (unless you don't like a 3rd floor walk up). You can't beat the location!
