“Fantastic!”
Reviewed October 9, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Leonina is a great place to stay! It has everything you could want and is in a great position.
There were 4 of us and although the apartment is a little small, we managed very well. It has a beautiful little balcony overlooking a canal, where you can sit and watch activities below.
Daniela was very helpful and kind and all correspondence was easy. The instructions email after booking was one of the best we have seen, every possible option was covered.
If you're lucky enough to visit magical Venice, book it!

“They've Thought of Everything!”
Reviewed October 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I highly recommend this charming apartment by a quiet canal. The stylish photos are accurate. The Nespresso machine, champagne stopper, large bath towels, ample hangers and closet space and footmats by the bedside were icing on the cake for me! The remodeled kitchen is spacious and the tile baths look brand new and had rain head showers. The floor plan was good in the separation of bedrooms. We were just two friends traveling, but the apartment can easily accommodate four. We used the comfy couch and chair in the living room to discuss the day's activities. Not too many stairs-maybe 25-30? I am fond of the Dorsoduro and loved the location of this apartment, near San Barnaba and Santa Margarita. Near Ca' Rezzonico and Accademia vaporetto stops. I have stayed in a few different Venice apartments, but Leonina will be my new first choice. The gracious staff-Daniela- who greeted me spent almost an hour welcoming me and making sure I knew where everything was. Grazie tanto!

“Great location, but expensive.”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were very impressed at the location, the apartment is wonderful, quiet, air conditioning, laundry available. 2 bathrooms. Just be aware it is expensive, which I think is common in Venice, I did not look at other apartments. I also did not like that I had to pay cash for the rest of the rent. I think they should of accepted credit card. I had to carry around 900 euro. We also had to put out the garage. For this price I would of expected some one to deal with the garage. In Rome for half the price, we had someone empty our garbage and make beds and change towels daily. Also there was no soap or shampoo. The Rome place had both.

Management Response

Hello Paola,

Thank you for writing such a positive review of the Leonina! We hope you enjoyed the contemporary décor, vintage features, and charming canal view! We are sorry to hear you felt some things could be improved upon, but I would like to take the opportunity to perhaps offer some explanation. It is strange to hear that you were not able to pay by credit card. More often than not, our guests settle the balance by credit card. If you have an issue making a payment in the future, please feel more than free to contact our headquarters! Secondly, as we manage approximately ninety separate properties here in Venice alone, coordinating our maid services to empty the rubbish from each apartment as well as manage all changes in guest arrivals and departures is simply out of reach. However, in the future, if you would like to coordinate with us a daily cleaning service, this could be discussed. All in all, we are happy you enjoyed your stay with us! Renting an apartment rather than staying in a hotel is a much more intimate experience and brings you a step closer to living like a true Venetian. Thank you!

“Great Apartment, Great Location!”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Planning my family's 2+ week vacation to Europe required a lot of research, and I relied heavily on TA reviews when booking our lodging. So, I feel compelled to write my own reviews to help other travelers! The Leonina was a fantastic apartment for several reasons, but first let me just say that noise was not an issue. We were there at the height of the tourist season and our 4-night stay included a Saturday night--a perfect recipe for noise if it was going to be noisy. Even though the apartment is on a busy corridor (walkers during the day), Dorsoduro just isn't that loud at night unless you are on a campo or piazza. The apartment also has new, very solid windows. We left the windows open a little but you could obviously close them for sleeping. The bottom line is that it is not noisy--and when you have an 8:45 a.m. tour the next morning, that's important! So, on to the other attributes: I go for clean and uncluttered, spacious enough for our two almost-grown kids, and location. We got everything here. Leonina is clean and neat. It feels homey in that it has everything you need, but it doesn't feel worn out at all (it's hard to find charm and cleanliness together sometimes!); it's beautifully maintained and designed (the apartment was at some point remodeled in a very smart way in terms of use of space). Our kids shared a room with twin beds which worked out great. A huge plus is having two bathrooms--unheard of! The apartment is in a great spot because it's in a quieter sestiere (district) but is close enough to walk to everything, including a vaporetto stop which we used a lot. To be right on a little canal was just perfect and so picturesque. I highly recommend this apartment, and I know it's hard to decide and choose so I hope this review is helpful! Oh, and I found out as we went along with our travels that a communicative and responsive rental agency is critical--Daniela and Enrico at Truly Venice were super helpful.

“Great location and neighborhood.”
Reviewed July 18, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment. We find its location in the Dorsoduro to be great neighborhood with easy access to St. Marks across the Grand Canal. The apartment is well appointed and works well for four people. The kitchen has every thing necessary should you chose to dine in.
We are looking forward to returning again in the future.
