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.
The apartment is spacious and clean and located in a quiet safe residential area just 3 minutes walk from the Guglie water bus stop. It takes about 10-12 minutes to walk to the train and bus station and you can reach the main shopping streets in about 8 minutes. There are nice restaurants and small shops in the vicinity but if you need to stock up with supplies you would be advised to go the some of the larger supermarkets located about 15-20 minutes from the apartment.
Andrea met us when we got off the water bus and kept in contact with us throughout the stay to make sure we had no problems.
We stayed here on a city break.
The process of booking the place went smoothly and Andrea, the owner, was really prompt in answering our emails.
The place is really close to the main interests in Venice, but in the same time you get to be away from the noise and enjoy a lot of privacy :).
Also the place was really clean and the thing I liked most was that they created a really warm atmosphere that makes you feel like you're actually home.
On our arrival Andrea welcomed us with a typical Italian hospitality, and he gave us some information about what we could do during our stay.
In the same day he sent us a detailed email with suggestions regarding all sorts of stuff.
Overall we had a great experience!
Andrea, thanks again for everything :).
