We booked Alberghiera Venezia based upon good reviews as well as the proximity to the railway station. A second factor was the ability to self cater with the property being an apartment.
The owner and her son were wonderful, sending details of how to locate the apartments. The welcome was as though we were family and so keen to ensure that we had the best opportunity to maximise our visit to Venezia. Details as important as the best supermarket, best use of the ferry system and timetables and key places to visit.
All this aside from the apartment which is fantastic. Large, spacious and comfortable with all you need to have a great stay. The apartment included a washing machine, was impeccably clean and the very proud owners make sure you have all your needs met.
As with any property in Italy, there are no fly screens and the only additional advice we would give is to invest in some spray or repellant.
This aside, we had a perfect stay and whilst away from the crowds and quiet, within 5 mins you are at the key routes into all the best Venice has to offer including ferries to all sites. Best of all you are a flat easy 5 min walk from the station.
This would be our first choice on returning to Venice without a doubt. More
