Superb centrally located apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 5 days with 3 friends. Perfect location, central for the whole of Venice and on the doorstep of Rialto Bridge and St. Marks Square area's. Superb service given by Bruno who met us at Rialto Bridge and escorted us to the apartment - he also gave us lots of information about Venice and all that goes with it!

Although central in a very peaceful location so managed to get a good nights rest after walking Venice, Murano & Burano to death!

The apartment was superb, it has everything you need and more. Spotlessly clean and had all it said in it's description. Not the most relaxing sofa but hey we were hardly in it to relax - you don't go to Venice to relax! Surrounded by lots of bars, restaurants & shops. Would recommend you don't eat or drink in St. Marks or anywhere near the water front areas as not only expensive but not the best food either!!! Get up the back streets and would say if the restaurant is full, wait for a table - do not frequent the empty places, they're empty for a reason!

Buy a water bus day pass - good value and you can get for as many days as you want and you can hop on & off as many times as you want too. Do the Grand Canal at night, its amazing, if you want Murano glass go to Murano its much cheaper than Venice and likewise if you want lace go to Burano. Both islands are lovely but Burano is special with its rainbow row houses!

To summarise we will never tire of Venice and its surrounding areas, my 5th time here and I still discover more and I still get lost! But Venice would not be Venice if you did not get lost!!!

Very good location

  • 4 of 5

Modern touch in old Venice. Minutes from the Rialto and the vaporetto. Restaurants and shops at the door but still very quiet. Professional and courteous people meeting you and taking you from the vaporetto stop to the appartment. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms ( showers ), air conditioning, kitchen, for the price of one hotel bedroom. A great week in Venice.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, and well-located! Comfortable beds which is important after a day of walking. Nice linens."American" coffee pot took over an hour to brew. The bathrooms were small but good showers. Nice kitchen and it was wonderful to have a washer. Gaia was very helpful. Her suggestions for restaurants were great! I would stay here again.

Smart, clean, well equipped and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just as advertised. It was smart, modern, very clean, well equipped and well located. The Red House Company was a pleasure to deal with. They were quick to respond to our queries and check in/ check out was easy. Sophie checked us in and couldn't have been more helpful giving us restaurant recommends, travel advice etc. Red House also booked a private water taxi from Marco Polo Airport which took us to within meters of the apartment. It wasn't cheap but it was a fantastic and totally unforgettable way to arrive.

In the centre of Venice!

  • 4 of 5

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Malafante,

we had a great time in your flat! We liked the place very much, it was just

perfect for the five of us! The wooden floor looks very nice and the

bathrooms are beautiful. It was very convenient to have the super-

mercato so close. We also appreciatet that Naida fetchet us from

Rialto and showed us everything. We are very pleased and thank you

very much!

Kind regards.

Great location, fully equipped, very clean!

  • 4 of 5

Very pleased with our stay here. We were met by Bruno who walked us to the apartment from Rialto stop. He was lovely...very knowledgeable and welcoming. Thank you Bruno! The apartment was very clean and comfortable making it a joy to return after a busy day exploring. One point to note...the walls are quite thin and you can hear the neighbours easily from the bedrooms...it didn't bother us though as it was nice to hear an Italian family chatting and they did quieten down at a reasonable time. Apartment is well equipped and had a lovely sociable kitchen with windows that overlook a canal. Would definitely go back! 😀
