“The perfect place to stay in Venice”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Vila Dogaressa is well placed, a beautiful apartment and well worth five stars. Sitting, drinking coffee in the morning looking over the Grand Canal was wonderful. Very conveneient for St Marks and all the other sites.

“Absolutely fantastic!”

We have just had the most amazing stay. Quite simply this is the best location in Venice. Stunning apartment with stunning views. You can just sit and watch the life on the canal or wander the fascinating streets. This apartment is very close to St Marks Square but in truth, everywhere in Venice is closer than you think. The Truly Venice team are excellent to deal with, but it was Hannah who met us on our arrival, that made our stay truly perfect. She was so friendly, thoughtful and welcoming, she spent time with us making sure we had all the information to make the most of our stay, giving us advice and suggestions which were excellent. It is very rare to meet such professionalism and it made our stay absolutely perfect. Thank you Hannah. With service like this, which ever apartment you stay in through Truly Venice, you won't be disappointed. We will return!

“The only place to stay in Venice”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The pictures of this apartment cannot do it justice. Not because it is more luxurious than shown but because there is a magical quality to staying in this graceful palazzo that offers one of the most enchanting views of Venice. The apartment is LARGE. We were five but you can easily accommodate 10 without anyone being underfoot. We loved the quirks that come from it being a converted building (remember the bottom floor of palazzos were meant for storage of merchandise) and appreciated them for what they are; there are long hallways that never end and tiny corridors that lead from one bedroom to the next. There are two outdoor areas; the balcony facing Santa Maria del Salute and a large patio (with table) within the grounds of the palazzo. If you stay at this place it will finagle its way into your heart. Moreover, if you can stay here- you must. Daniela and her team are AMAZING- I have rented through out Europe and their customer service, promptness and professionalism are unmatched.

“The best of Venice”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

This apartment is the ground floor of a palazzo on the Grande Canale opposite Santa Maria della Salute. The palazzo was visited by, among others, Henry James, Robert Browning and John Singer Sargent around the end of the 19th century. The apartment is spacious, luxurious and magnificently furnished. It is fully equipped, and has four double bedrooms, all en-suite. Plenty of towels, etc. it has a terrace on the canal with spectacular views, and it is minutes away from San Marco, and shops and a supermarket not far away. There is also a private garden from the apartment. The main bedroom has a stylish 'gentleman's' dressing room, the only criticism is although this bedroom has a magnificent bath, it lacks a proper shower, and the basin leaks a bit. However, these are minor details. The apartment is so large that on occasion the free Wi-Fi could not reach the bedroom at the far end! Truly Venice, the letting agents, are extremely helpful, ordering water taxis etc., and available by telephone locally to sort out any problems. We were a party of six, and thoroughly enjoyed the stylish surroundings, sitting on the canal terrace drinking Prosecco watching the historical regatta was a highlight. We were all reluctant to leave, and will certainly book through Truly Venice again.

“Dreams can come true”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

When I saw the photographs of the Dogaressa Apartment, I dreamed of staying there. My husband agreed! Our stay at Dogaressa was wonderful. It is truly a privilege experience to enjoy the views of the Grand Canal and especially Santa Maria della Salute from the wooden terrace! Daniela couldn’t have been more helpful preparing for our stay, arranging water-taxis, accommodating my husband who arrived early, and and then helping us retrieve our luggage that had missed our flight. The apartment is in the best location in Venice. And the apartment is beautiful! We loved hearing the the gondolas slapping the waves, and the waves lapping the stone walls of our bedroom. Thank you. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Opposite one of my favourite churches - the basilica Santa Maria dela Salute, and only a few minutes walk to St Mark's Square, this is a really lovely place to stay. We hope to be back!

“Elegant Place to Stay”
Reviewed 27 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Do not be disappointed by the state of the balcony when approaching this apartment via river taxi. Once the cushions have been placed and the sun shines it does look like the brochure picture. Make sure the back cushions are tied to the wooden back as they can slip into the canal if not careful.
A wonderful location and THE best view in Venice, practically all of our time was spent on the balcony with the exception of sleeping in the luxurious bedrooms and cooking in the well-equipped kitchen.
Take note however, the Grand Canal is not a quiet area. Throughout the day there is the sound of the wakes made by the vaporetto (water buses) and the gondolieri singing as well as the day-to-day traffic of hotel supplies, refuse collection & building supplies being delivered. It is all very fascinating and wonderful to watch, especially with a glass of Prosecco! Throughout the night, after the gondelieri have ‘parked up’ their gondole; the sound of the canal slapping and swishing is surprisingly loud and can take a bit of getting used to, especially in the main bedroom which overlooks the Grand Canal – a small price to pay for such a location.
