Stayed in the apt with all the pink and green. It is much better in person. The apt is 2 rooms with A/C wall unit in bedroom. In the living room, there is a cabinet with a small kitchenette in it. (No microwave). Would have been nice to have some detergent to wash the dishes with as they didn't wash them day to day (We only used glasses). They do come and change towels and make bed daily. The room has wifi that was decent speed and is stronger in living room.
The apt is on the first floor and there is a small set of stairs to reach it once inside the front gate area. In the public area, there is a small courtyard that was very nice and a small hall area leading to a door that opens to the canal. (That is the picture you see of the room that opens to a canal). The apt itself is a corner unit with canal on both sides with (6) windows looking down on the canal. You have to walk to the windows to see the canal though. It is a popular gondola area so will hear them during the day and evening. Will also hear some canal noise as it is a tight turn for any boats and they have to three point turn it. The bed is king size with good pillows (4). Bed was comfortable. Apt was nicely furnished with comfortable furniture. TV on the wall with no English channels but plenty (like 20 channels) of very racy late night infocommercial ads for phone sex lines. No issue for us but just beware if bringing young people.
Bathroom is all blue tile with shower and separate bath tub. It was stocked with amenities and had hairdryer also. Towels were of decent quality and large. (No washcloths but didn't have washcloths in any of the hotels we stayed at in Italy) The shower is small but I am 6' 280" and I had no difficulty fitting in or taking shower. We had no hot water the first day and once we reported it.....they had the plumber there that day fixing it. Plenty of hot water once working. There is a safe in the room and it is right before you walk into the bathroom. We realized when we got back the first day (the same day the hotel staff and plumber were in the apt) that we had left it wide open with a significant amount of cash in it. There was no way it could have been missed walking by. Nothing was missing so a big thumbs up to the integrity of the staff.
You do have to go to the main hotel to check in and it really is a short walk from the orange line Alliguna stop. They will take you to the apt from there and it is close by. Near the apt, there is grocery store and also a little bar on the corner that is open late night (which is uncommon in Venice) I do not recommend the pizzeria around the corner but the Rustico restaurant was outstanding.
Was very comfortable here and would stay again. My only recommendations for improvement are to add a telephone with the phone number for the hotel so we don't have to walk back to the hotel if we need to report problem or need help. Also, when taking people to the apt, spend a few minutes showing them how the heat and air work as it wasn't really self explanatory.
The location is perfect and is very easy to get to Rialto or St Marks from the apt. If my review was helpful, please check it. Also, I will be doing reviews of the restaurants and other places we stayed in Italy over next week so check my other reviews.
