“Very good, but details can be improved”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

A very nice apartment and in an excellent location in Venice. Clean and well kept. But a few things to note:
1. Inevitably a wide angle lens gives the impression that the rooms are bigger than they actually are. In particular the kitchen is a lot smaller than it seems on photos. The agency should manage this a bit better.
2. We were 5 persons, which is also what the apartment is said to accommodate. But we lacked kitchen equipment for 5, for example few glasses and cups for joint meals. Also, when it is to cold to sit outside, no place to seat five together indoors.
3. There's a need to manage cleanliness outside the apartment, but we have no idea how that could be done. But it affects the experience.
These are factors that could be improved and if so, we would recommend this without any reservations.

“Nice Apartment,shame about the noise!”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We booked this apartment with Truly Venice and where expecting great things.

Booking was easy and correspondence with them was good, only when we arrived at our destination the rep was waiting at the wrong location and we had a long wait in the sun before they eventually arrived at the apartment.

The apartment itself is very lovely and old worldly, a lovely courtyard that would have benefited from some better seating! also some seat pads would be great.

The bed had no mattress protector which is essential. The bedding itself left a lot to be desired, not up to standard for such an apartment.

The kitchen was adequate rather small, could have done with a few tea towels! A welcome pack would have been appreciated although we were greeted with a nice bottle of Prosecco.

The apartment is situated just off the main square Campo Santa Margherita and you should be warned that this area is a student hangout and subsequently in the evenings is rather noisy! The square becomes one large open air bar! Also the alleyway from the square to the apartment leads to the main buss terminal and unfortunately is used as an outdoor toilet as they make their way home, not very nice in the morning when you need to hold your nose when leaving the apartment!
All in all a very nice place but please be aware of the noise.

“A TRULY VENETIAN EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I've just come back from ten days staying in the Loredan. I'm a regular visitor to Venice, staying in apartments and hotels, and this has been perhaps the most authentically Venetian experience I've had. It is in a Calle just off Piazza Santa Marguerita, one of my favourite squares which has a thriving vegetable, fruit and fish market most days, and a buzzing student population in the evenings. Step through the front door of the apartment and the ambience immediately seduces: it as though a Venetian family has just left: to judge from the decorations, furniture and antiques the family has taste, distinction, and has lived there for generations. It's like visiting the house (I imagine!) of a favourite wealthy aunt: hospitable, comfortable, and filled with many things one would like to inherit - and a few which one devoutly hopes one will not! The main living room is pure delight: an immense comfortable sofa covered with a fabulous throw faces glass wall which makes a room out of what was obviously originally an open colonnade, with old Tuscan columns still on view. The other side of the glass is a beautiful enclosed courtyard garden, with its share of antique and quirky artefacts, as well as a table, six chairs and numerous lanterns and candle-holders inviting cool breakfasts, long lunches, and candlelit dinners - all of which I tried and can recommend. The living room also contains a large television (who the hell goes to Venice and watches TELEVISION!), another dining table, and plenty of seating. The kitchen is neither large nor modern, but it is charming and functional. It has no dishwasher, but it does have two absurd copper sinks, a large fridge with good-sized freezer compartment, and, most unusually for holiday lets, proper pots and pans for cooking pasta AND a real, heavy frying pan in which to cook garlic for "spaghetti al alio, olio e pepperoncini" without burning it! The cupboards contain the ample remains of two large and elderly Villeroy and Bosch dinner services (lavish, in an eccentric, retro kind of way), and a few basics (olive oil, balsamic vinegar, pasta, coffee) to start you off. They do NOT contain sufficient glassware to compliment the china.... A second door from the kitchen leads into the courtyard.

A stone staircase leads from the living room to the first floor landing, thoroughly modern and well-fitted shower room, and two bedrooms. The bedrooms are attractive, furnished in a traditional Venetian style, but clothes-storage is a bit haphazard: the room has wardrobes shared with an unlikely amount of winter bedding, while the wardrobes in the smaller bedroom are locked shut, meaning its occupants have to use space in the landing wardrobes. Truly Venice are aware of this criticism, and may well have addressed it already - it has the feel of teething problems rather than a major issue: there IS enough storage - it is just not (yet) in the right places. Another flight of stairs leads to the third bedroom, with an antique baldecchino (four-poster) bed, and another bathroom - this one something of a period piece, but perfectly functional,

To sum up - Loredan is NOT a state-of-the-art letting apartment: but then, this is not something I would look for or expect to find in Venice. What it IS, is a true taste of what it is like to stay in a beautiful and idiosyncratic home, evocative of the old Venetian family which owns it: a home which is not uniformly modernised, but which is well-maintained, totally charming, functional, and operated by a helpful and personable agency. Downsides: the aforementioned glassware and clothes storage - oh, and the main bedroom is occasionally affected by the noise of revellers leaving the Piazza. Upsides: too numerous to mention, but must include its situation, in a part of Venice which still feels like a residential district. In a self-catering apartment, buying food and drink is important, and Loredan is ideally located for this: turn right into Santa Marguerite and, past the fish- and veg- stalls and a good Punto supermarket, you soon come to Majer, a patisserie which has fabulous croissants for breakfast and even better focaccia for lunch; a little further and across a bridge, the iconic "vegetable barge" selling THE best and freshest produce around (try their figs), and on a little further, in San Barnaba, there is Grom, selling simply the best ice-cream in the world.

I love Venice, and I loved this place. I'll be back.

“Fab Place”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

It was everything in the Photo. It was situated in a perfect location. Walking distance from the Bus Station. We could not fault it. We will be booking Truly Venice again. The Lady that came round with the keys was great gave us loads of information asked us if there was anything we needed. There wasn't apart from the heat of 38 degrees. It was a welcome sight walking into the apartment it was very cool especially with the air-conditioning.

“Great location too overpriced”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Fabulous greeter cara think her name was
We know the area extremely well and we're suprised when she said meet at SToma. Being disabled we always choose a route with fewer bridges to cross especially with luggage from 16 day stay.
Our first problem was that we had loaded all the rental onto a cash passport for security as we were handing over a very large sum of money. They don't use cards.
Cara did offer to come back the following day luckily that was not necessary
She told us that she would have to go which was no problem. We set about the exploring the house.
The kitchen was the most important for us. We love to cook and had invited venician friends for dinner.
The kitchen was better than some of the others previous but no dishwasher only two copper bowls that tarnish when wet
They are so small that plates get wedged.
The crockery is ok
BUT the pans are all old and poor quality
The cutlery is from the 1900's
All different. No decent sharp knives for cooking. We were told not to use the back door as the glass was all cracked.
The main room looks onto a little garden

It is quite attractive but we can not understand why there should be an old electric fire outside.
We also noticed that the large plate glass windows looking onto the garden had several cracks
The sofa in the main room needs burning along with the old uncomfortable chairs.
An unsuccessful attempt to cover it with a throw was disgraceful and left us feeling itchy.
The TV had only Italian TV.
The did player had no dad's to watch! !!!!
The music player does not work
The first floor has a shower room the mos modern feature of this house . It also doubled as a laundry. Also two bedrooms on this floor which we used as a dressing room. Our bedroom was to be on the top floor. A partial four poster with parts missing. It creaks with every movement.The air conditioning in this room had been set. It did not move below 27 degrees and we found this very uncomfortable. The TV in the bedroom does not work.
In the bathroom my years of clutter and perfume bottles were on shelves.
Old wooden objects on the walls. I believe in antique pieces but surely of good quality and not left over junk
Our friends here in Venice can not believe how much money we have paid for this property in this state. It needs bringing up to date for the money being charged.
Overall great location near but just far away.
We would buy this property ourselves if available but then it needs money spending on it
Disappointed
Having a meeting today with agents for our next visits to Venice. This is our second already this year.
