Guido could not have been more welcoming: he met us at the station, took us to the flat and explained everything over proseccoand cake. Then he showed us the local area and recommended restaurants.
The flat was perfect. All that was needed and everything spotless. I liked the area, which was quiet, but not far from the sights with a vapoetto stop nearby. The recommended restaurant was excellent and good value.
Everything looked like the photos.
We can’t say enough good things about this apartment! We were able to relax and still be tourists. It was away from the masses but close enough to the sights we wanted to see. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked with basics. Everything was very clean. Our host was friendly and went the extra mile to show us the neighborhood as well as the apartment features. Would be happy to have my family and friends stay there.
This was our second stay at the Armonia, we'd enjoyed it the first time so much that we were determined to return. The sheer convenience of the place is staggering, the Canareggio is just metres away, two Vaporetto stops , which will take you virtually anywhere in the city or outlying islands( with a change) are on your doorstep, but at the same time it is peaceful and pleasant away from the crush. The apartment is beautifully well thought out, well appointed and comfortable. We ate breakast "at home" , had cicchetti for lunch and cooked in the evening, with a young child this seems to us the tastiest and most economical way to visit Venice.
The Armonia is in a gated area, so it feels extra secure.
Apartment is near station and therefore easier to walk bags. Apartment good and clean with everything provided. Hosts provided some unforgettable restaurant recommendations. We would stay there again.
From being greeted at the Piazzale Roma by Teresa and her partner, to the extensive introduction, this apartment blew us away. Teresa walked us to the apartment, spent a significant amount of time explaining things and answering questions, while we drank bubbles and ate cake, kindly provided by Guido. Before Teresa left she showed us the back way to the Canale di Cannaregio and restaurants. Thank you Teresa. We loved coming back to this apartment which was an oasis of quiet and comfort in a sea of 70,000 tourists per day, phew. As others have pointed out, it is not far to walk to San Marco, especially if the back way is used. It is also very close to the Piazzale Roma (two bridges) and the Stazione Ferroviaria Santa Lucia (one bridge). As well the Canale di Cannaregio has a lot of ferries on offer, allowing direct access to Murano, or connections to Burano and Torcello. I highly recommend eating, at least once, at Dalla Marisa which is on the Canale di Cannaregio. Service is a bit brusque, the restaurant decides what to serve you (fish dishes), and you must book, but how the food tastes. We tried Dodo Caffe, a few canals over, for breakfast, very good and inexpensive. We probably would not come back to Venice, but if we did we would stay at this apartment. A month sounds good ... Sigh but then there are the other tourists.
