This is the third time in three years that I've stayed at Sognando Venezia and it remains a great choice. It's close to two vaporetto stops and the station, but it is in a quiet oasis in a busy city. There are loads of great restaurants on the Guglie Fondamente and, in less than 20 minutes' walk, the buzzy nightlife of Miseracordia is accessible. It's just around the corner from the tourist trek to Rialto, but you'd never know from inside.
The apartment is safe, with a secure entrance off the Calle, and well lit. There are no stairs, which, for me, is just great; after walking all day, who needs more stairs?
Andrea and Silvia are lovely couple and very helpful. The apartment has AC, but the bedroom can get a bit stuffy nevertheless, so there's a fan.
There are no wine glasses, but this was not a problem as we were out all the time. Also a kettle would be a helpful addition.
Apart from this, I love staying here and feel really comfortable in a clean, modern apartment where one feels like a local!
Great location - close to the ferry from the airport and the local ferry and to the train station, but in a quiet lane way away from the tourist rush. The apartment is well equiped and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.
This accommodation is perfect, excellent location, near enough to everything but far enough away to never be disturbed. Any queries were answered quickly and Andrea was very helpful.
Andrea was a great host.. very welcoming.. the home was very secure and so close to everything.. a lovely quiet location .. very well equipped.
Really enjoyed our stay in Venice. Booking went well. Andrea was very helpful and kept in contact and answered any queries promptly. Andrea sent us useful suggestions re local restaurants etc. Sylvia very helpfully met us as the apartment when we arrived and gave us all the necessary information.
Apartment is well located near the station. Apartment was very well equipped and clean. Felt very safe and secure with the gate system. However, a few suggestions we would make are as follows:-
- need some wine glasses, corkscrew and bottle opener.
- a couple of extra mugs would be handy so you don't have to keep washing up the same two.
- a coffee table would be very useful
- a DVD and CD player would be great.
Would definitely recommend this apartment as a lovely place to stay.
