We were met by someone at the water bus stop and shown to the apartment. They were really helpful and gave us some information about Venice.
The apartments itself was amazing. We had 6 people staying there and it was still really spacious. Kitchen was large enough and well equipped to cook in. The terrace was a nice addition. It was a bit chilly to sit out there but the view was great.
The location was perfect. It was nice to stay in a quieter area but still within 10 mins walk of St Marks square. The best supermarket we found was by the rialto Bridge.
Burano is worth taking a trip to - the colourful houses make a great Instagram post. Murano is one of those places you feel you should go to but you don’t need that long there!
Apartment Venini could not be in a better location.We chose to walk everywhere but the water taxi stop on the Grand Canal was only 30 metres away.There was a local grocery store 20 metres from the apartment.Handy, but like the rest of Venice, expensive. Note there is no canal view.The only drawback was the strict requirement to use a very small lift to access the apartment .You are not allowed to use the stairs .If you are in the least claustrophobic you will not enjoy this. Apart from that the apartment is fabulous.We did not make use of the roof terrace as it was too cold but it would be a huge bonus in the summer months.We were met by Enrico who was helpful and gave good advice. No problem in delaying checkout to suit our flight. We would stay there again without hesitation.
6 of us (3 couples) stayed at the Venini Apartment for 3 night during August 2017 following a cruise which ended in Venice. Truly Venice was extremely accommodating and allowed us to check-in early and check-out late since the apartment wasn't booked on the those days.
Thomas came to meet us at San Samuele water bus stop and took us to the apartment which is only a minute's walk away. He gave us the tour of the apartment and also provided us with a map already marked with local shops etc and advised us on local reasonably priced restaurants and answered all the questions we had. The map came in very handy as the GPS signal on the phone was very erratic in some parts of Venice.
The apartment is in a very quiet part of Venice and very spacious, extremely clean and had every thing that one could want including air conditioning (the temp outside was mid-30c everyday). The kitchen was extremely well equipped and we chose to eat in 2 out of the 3 nights using groceries purchased at a local supermarket which was 5 to 10 minutes walk away.
All key sights are within 10 to 15 minutes walking distance from the apartment and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Venini with Truly Venice.
I would definitely recommend Truly Venice and if I am ever in Venice again I would book with them without hesitation.
