“Perfect location, amenities, ambience, view, and size for an "insider" family vacation!”
Reviewed July 19, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The apartment is in easy walking distance to most of Venice. It is very spacious - 4 bedrooms w/full baths, plus ample living, dining, and kitchen facilities. The view and the small deck on the Grand Canal are awesome!! (Pictures are accurate). We had a family of 5 and it was perfect!

Not is the location central in San Marco, it is a surprisingly short walk to Rialto, Academe and to two public taxi stops on the Canal.

“Venetian Palazzo with fantastic balcony!”
Reviewed April 28, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We booked the apartment for 4 nights as extended family (7 people), including little children and elderly people.
It is a real Venetian Palazzo. The pictures are not promising too much. We were welcomed with flowers and sparkling wine. The "apartment" was comfortable, really spacious and fully equipped (coffee, washing-up liquid, soap). But the cherry on the cake ist the private balcony to the Canal Grande. As the Palazzo is located in the heart of Venice (quiet side street), places of interest can be reached easily. After having visited the city you can easily come back and relax.
The people oft the agency were very helpful, friendly and professional. You should absolutely book the watertaxi for arrival, it was a indescribable experience.
All in all it is an amazing feeling of being a guest there, we definitely would book this Palazzo again.

“Cold apartment in the winter”
Reviewed February 12, 2017 for a stay in December 2016
2
people found this review helpful

We rented this apartment for five days at the end of December. Great location, One Canalview bedroom but we were not allowed to control the thermostat and it would automatically shut off at night and freeze us all so bad we couldn't sleep. Our bedroom got down to 54 degrees, 14 Celsius. We all went to bed fully clothed wearing stocking hats and scarves. When I called the agency to ask if we could please have the heater on during the night, they said no because it was the Venetian way to turn the heaters off at night. This is true however, being a tourist and paying $1000 night this is not acceptable.

There is a beautiful foyer where the water taxi drops you off. Each time we went out there to enjoy the view or take pictures The neighbor would come out and tell us we were not allowed to be out there.

The apartment does have an excellent location, but is just important to know what you will get if you rent in the wintertime.

“The personal balcony overhanging the Grand Canal makes this better than you can imagine”
Reviewed November 3, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I cannot say enough good things about the Dogaressa Apartment. It is on the GrandCanal with a private first floor balcony over the canal with seating for 6 + directly across from the Santa Maria della Salute. This is an end-of-the-day wine and cheese party location that beats anything else you will find in Venice. Truly Venice, the property manager, arranged a water taxi from the airport directly to our private dock - what an amazing way to arrive in Venice and your home away from home.
We had 7 in our party (3 couples and a single), which worked out well as all bedrooms had their own bath. The living room is large with great views; the dining room is excellent and the kitchen is well equipped. The location is 5 minutes to St. Mark's Square with lots of other attractions in the area nearby. It is a short walk to the Giglio vaporetto stop (be sure to buy a multi-day pass which lets you get on and off as much as you like).Hannah, the onsite manager for Truly Venice, was wonderful and spent as much time as we needed to get introduced to the apartment, the area and even helped with a couple of restaurant recommendations. Everything you see on the Truly Venice website concerning the Dogaressa is factual and accurate. We began our visit in mid-October, which was cool a couple of days. To fully enjoy the Dogaressa and it's balcony I'd come in late September. I booked it as soon as I saw it - 1 year in advance. You will love it. Do not pass up this place.

“Fantastic location, Fantastic apartment”
Reviewed August 18, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Although this apartment seems expensive it is worth every penny. At the entrance to The Grand Canal with a small terrace onto the water, we were entertained every day by singing Gondoliers. Although there is an inner courtyard we couldn't keep away from the terrace. The apartment is huge-there is a long walk if you've forgotten anything from the far bedroom. It has
charm, is furnished with lots of really interesting things and pictures and the kitchen has everything you could want or need. It was also very cool inside when the temperatures outside hit 30c. We were there with grown-up children and a 10 month old Granddaughter and we looked forward to going back every day after walking all round Venice. St Mark's Square was 5 minutes away but I would recommend that you visit early in the morning before all the hoards of tourists arrive. We liked Guidecca, across the Canal best and the area around the old jewish quarter. We had such a good time that if/when we return, and if we could still afford it, I would stay here again. It was a perfect stay in Venice.
