Loved everything. Perfect location, apartment and staff. So beautiful. Cannot fault it at all. Staff extremely helpful. Gondolas passing by the window. Beautiful view from our rooms. Five minutes from Rialto bridge and San Marco. Couldn't have wished for anything better.

Since we only had one night in Venice on our tour of Italy, I wanted to pick somewhere convenient with proximity to the sites and restaurants. Charming House IQs couldn't have been more convenient. Less than 10 minutes from the Grand Canal, Rialto Bridge, Piazza San Marco and Saint Marks Basillica. It couldn't be in a better location!!

Also the women who work there are extremely lovely and helpful. They allowed us to check out slightly later and store our bags in the reception area. They made dinner recommendations and reservations. Had many suggestions. We were greeted by a bottle of prosecco and a full complimentary beverage fridge. Genuinely kind.

Our room was the two bedroom suite. It is very large with two bathrooms. Very stylish. Outstanding views from the windows and AIR CONDITIONING!!! Have absolutely no complaints.

We definitely will be back!

I wanted something special for my wifes 39th birthday and decided upon Venice. I spent an inordinate amount of time reading reviews on trip advisor, mr and mrs smith et al and checking places and pricing from friends who all had recommendations. I decided upon IQs Charming House because its unique and the service from Tania and Ekaterina was exceptional leading up to the booking (they helped with restaurant bookings and advised on opera etc).

There are many reviews here that explain the set up and the size. Three rooms only which are more like suites and one of the three is bigger than the rest (it actually used to be 2 rooms but they converted it into just one. Ive been into all of them and my recommendation would be that if you are a couple its the two smaller ones that are better and as per other reviews, smaller does not mean small! We stayed for several days in the one facing Parrocchia Santa Maria Formosa. I recommend this room as it has the most windows of all and has a fire place where a tv has been placed with a fire feature on DVD. We had some rain whilst there and were keen to have some lazy mornings. This really is a super romantic set up.

There is no room service as you would expect but there are croissants in the morning and the food options within a 50 metre radius are abundant. We brought fresh pasta back to the room and also a pizza once or twice. Here comes the big tip - hop into the Fondazione Querini Stampalia which is right next door and have breakfast in their cafe which has great ham and cheese toasty thingys and has the most amazing little garden! Check it out! Architcture to die for.

The coolest thing about this place is its location. I had thought i would want to be on the grand canal but for quality you pay through the roof and if you dont pay through the roof you dont get quality. What i had not appreciated is how touristy the grand canal is. By staying at IQs, you get away from all of that but can be in it in 5 minutes walk and you are on a canal with activity outside your window and a cool square. So so cool.

The other cool thing about this place is the ability to get the water taxi from the airport to the door. Its just mind blowing. This is arranged by the girls at the hotel and if you are lucky they will get Luca for you. Luca is the baddest cat in the marina. His boat is not any plastic replica but the real timber deal. Think Riva but better. This was a real highlight. Go one better and pay a bit more and get Luca to take you to or from the airport via the grand canal which we did on the way back to the airport. Then you feel like a king and queen. Luca let me drive the boat up the grand canal for a bit!

We went and had coffee at Aman Venice (George Clooney), we checked the other hotel in the group dd724 and also checked Maria Adele but for my mind, the location of IQs and the personal service from Tania and Ekaterina plus the design furniture and the large size of the rooms (in otherwise very small roomed hotels) meant this place is the pick of the bunch. Here you feel as if you have your own apartment in Venice - much cooler than staying in a big hotel. Congrats team IQs on a great concept. We will be back!

From once we booked the room, the team got in touch and helped us book a water taxi to make sure we got to the apartment without any hassle. Amazing and intimate entrance. The lady who checked us in (Wafa) was amazing. She gave us 2 amazing restaurant recommendations - both were spot on! The apartment was very modern with still a hint of the heritage of the building. Clean, spacious enough for a couple (however we actually had our baby and nanny with us and we were still ok). Location is central to everywhere. We met the owner on the last day who kindly gave us the history of the place - very nice and personal! We would definitely return here. Oh and the croissants for breakfast - delivered fresh to our apartment was an amazing touch
