“The Perfect Venetian Get-Away”
Reviewed April 19, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Truly Venice's Alba d'Oro one-bedroom apartment really is the perfect place for a couple wishing a romantic sojourn in Venice. The apartment itself is comfortable; the living room furniture is lovely for reading and also taking naps; the dining room table seats 6 (or two looking directly out the windows at the Ca d'Oro across the Grand Canal); we used the kitchen to cook breakfasts, lunches and even a gourmet dinner (all ingredients were bought at the Rialto Markets, which are ~ 100 yards away, across a bridge over a tiny canal). The bedroom has adequate storage and a comfortable queen bed, and the bathroom works just fine (complete with a new stall shower). There is a washing machine, dishwasher, all the appliances and kitchenware you need. Oh, and a mosaic in the floor showing that the palazzo was remodelled in 1851. Really cool.

But the location is really the kicker. You get a great front-seat view of the Grand Canal; down one flight of stairs is Calle dei Boteri -- a relatively quiet commercial street where there are restaurants and shops; you're very close not only to the Rialto Markets but also to the shopping area adjacent to the markets; and the "more authentic" San Polo neighborhood is right there. The Rialto Bridge is maybe 4 minutes away, maybe less, and in 10 minutes you're in St. Mark's Square. And there is a dock right outside the apartment where you can arrive from the airport by water taxi (or you can use the Rialto Market Vaporetto stop, 200 yards away, or the Rialto Alilaguna/Vaporetto stop just across the Rialto Bridge).

The apartment is in the same palazzo as the Hotel L'Orologio, so you have a great place to get a drink or fancy breakfast within 100 feet of your door. Friends came to visit us and stayed there.

In sum, Alba d'Oro is a lovely place to park yourself in a fantastic location with a perfect view, quiet but close to everything. We return for 2 weeks every year, and just reserved it for next year.

“Wonderful location but needs updating to justify cost”
Reviewed October 18, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We spent twelve days here. The views from the sitting room window on the Grand Canal were spectacular in perfect hot weather. The situation next to the Rialto market was ideal for food shopping and communications. The apartment was spacious but the furnishings and electrical equipment (IKEA?) were showing signs of age. The bathroom was OK but the hot water delivery system (a boiler in the kitchen) which sent only a trickle of hot water to the shower made it very difficult to adjust the temperature. The air conditioning in the sitting room was excellent but in the bedroom less so and we didn't use it. We tried to sleep with the windows open but it was too noisey, the hard surfaces in Venice seem to magnify sound, so it got a little stuffy. Unfortunately quite soon after our arrival, the front door became difficult/impossible to open and when we reported it, the rep didn't want to believe we were having difficulties. We had almost to force him to get it repaired, a new door hinge, and that caused some stress for a while. Otherwise the admin (check-in, water taxis) were good. Overall, this should be a wonderful apartment but it was let down by the condition of the interiors which did not justify the price but we did have a fantastic time.

“Spacious apartment with gorgeous view of Grand Canal away from the crowds in San Polo, Venice.”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This apartment was spacious and beautiful with original wide plank floors, original beamed ceilings, and big windows that open onto the breathtaking views and sounds of the Grand Canal. Everything I read said to stay away from staying in San Marco during the month of August. We are so glad we took that advice. The apartment is a four minute walk to the Rialto bridge but it feels a world away from the crowds of tourists on the streets. The bedroom was spacious with good closet and drawer space. The kitchen and bathroom as well were clean, new, spacious, and well equipped. The decor is elegant and the furniture comfortable. The Murano glass chandeliers hanging from the high beamed ceilings gave the rooms an authentic Veneziana touch. We highly recommend this apartment and hope it is as well kept and comfortable when we return.

“THE PERFECT GRAND CANAL COUPLE GETAWAY”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My wife and I have stayed in Alba d'Oro for the last half-dozen years, and we are thrilled to have found this perfect one-bedroom flat with the living room windows overlooking the Grand Canal opposite the Ca d'Oro, only one block from the Rialto Markets, and less than 10 minutes from St. Mark's Square.

In an 1853 remodel of a Palazzo adjacent to the Hotel L'Orologio, you are up one original flight of stairs into a delightfully preserved (walls, ceiling, floor) but redone (windows, plumbing, electrical) building in a location you can't beat. The kitchen is properly equipped; the bath spacious and functional; the bedroom has 2 windows, a king bed, and adequate storage; and the living/dining room is spacious and comfortably furnished (good reading chairs and lighting).

The price is quite reasonable for a view of the Grand Canal.

“A Wonderful Apartment from a Wonderful Agency”
Reviewed April 3, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My wife and I stayed at the Alba d'Oro apartment, rented through Truly Venice. The apartment was terrific -- clean, updated, with everything one needs for two weeks (or a lifetime). It has a Grand Canal view, and is 500' from the Rialto markets. So, getting everywhere is convenient, and shopping was a dream. The apartment was well-serviced (spotless), and well equipped; the greeter was punctual, knowledgeable and most helpful. This was our 15th vacation in Venice, and the facilities and service were the very best. I cannot say enough positive about the agency and the apartment. And, we are fussy........
