“Wonderful and hospitable owner”

When we came to Venice, Guido - the owner of the appartment, met us at Piazza del Roma, where all the airport buses arrive and helped us with the luggage. He showed the way, explained how to use keys and what was most exciting - made a personal tour around Venice for us. He studied the history of Venice, so it was really interesting to learn about some buildings and their history.
Besides Guido recommended some great places where we could have dinner and welcomed us in the appartment with wine and cake - it was so sweet! The appartment was even better than we expected - automated smart windows, great wifi connection, ability to cook by ourselves, location and option to exit for different sides of the appartment - you will hardly find anything better.
The appartment is close to both Santa Lucia railway station and bus station that is very comfortable if you are planning to travel somewhere from Venice. I highly recommend it to all visitors - best choice for reasonable money.

We stayed at Armonia Apartments in May 2013 and very much enjoyed the facilities. The booking was very smooth with correspondence with Guido being very easy and accurate. As arranged Guido met us at the station and accompanied us to the apartments. He then took us on a tour providing us with a history of the area and enabling us to become familiar with land marks.

We went to one of the restaurants he recommended, Tarttoria de Marissa for lunch this was excellent enabling us to enjoy a fixed price and menu with the locals.

The apartment has all necessary equipment, including a clothes washer which was great for us as we had been on the road for two weeks and although staying in apartments this was the first that offered this facility. The cooking facilities are also very good sufficient to prepare meals, not just reheat food. This enabled us to shop at the Rialto market and enjoy preparing our own meals, not only cost savings but great fun.

All in all we would highly recommend Armonia it is in a very quiet area, other then the church bells that go off at 7 am every morning, with all necessary facilities.

Thank you for the very kind review. About the heating system, in May in Italy is usually set to 'summer' (only hot water). If it was cold, if you had called me I would have explained how to switch the system to 'winter'...

We have visited Venice before but this was our best stay yet. The apartment was modern, spacious, clean, well-appointed and in a quiet area but within easy reach of all the main tourist sites. Nowhere is very far away in Venice. We really enjoyed the chance to sit outside on the little terrace for breakfast and the books and maps were a very interesting and useful addition. We also appreciated the wi-fi. Guido is a very friendly host who met us at the bus station and explained everything to us. Even though it was getting late, he gave us a guided tour of the immediate locality and was able to provide fascinating historical information as well as recommending places to eat and shop. On the last day, we were even able to leave our luggage in the apartment after check-out time as our flight was in the afternoon. This was very convenient for us. We will definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family on the basis of our own relaxing stay and hope to return before too long.

To set the scene, this is written from the perspective of a young couple eager to see the sights of Venice and enjoy a new experience.

We booked the appartment and recieved prompt email confirmation. Guido supplied us with useful directions to meet him and a photo of himself. We found him with no problems and were greeted with a warm welcome.

He taught us about familiar landmarks to find the apartment. On entering the apartment, we were more than happy to find it lived up to its expectations and more. We can guarentee you wont be dissapointed. It was clean, modern with loads of character and a cupboard full of essentials to make you feel at home. Everything you would expect from an apartment.

However, Guido was more than you could ever expect as a host. We were welcomed with a bottle of fizz and a freshly baked tart. We got the necessities out the way, whilst happily sipping and chatting away about the hidden gems you can find in Venice. At this point we expected him to say his goodbyes, but instead he took us on tour around the Ghetto sharing his knowledge of the history of Venice. He gave us an insightful and educated experience. He taught us the do's and dont's of Venice and gave helped us feel grounded in our surroundings.

Even though it rained most of the time, which made our experience different. We found it just as enjoyable. We used the local map Guido gave us for the trip to mark the places we found on the internet and guide books. Here are just a few places we recommend you should try

• Al Arco - found across the Rialto Bridge
• Venice Jazz Bar - near the student area from 9-11pm
• Orange Bar - friendly staff with lots of cheap and free drinks
• Taverna del Campiello Reme - may be called something different now but you should be able to find it on a map. This place was the highlight of our holiday. Between the hours of 17.30 - 19.30, a free buffet with amazing food was put out, which you could help yourself to as long as you bought one drink. We made numerous trips to taste the huge spread of food available. Friendly staff and a Jazz band at night. The atmosphere was amazing and the view from the peer was stunning at night.

Tip: Restaurants and Bars on the main roads around Venice can be very pricey and sometimes not the best places to eat. We found amazing snack shacks and quirky bars off the beaten track which offered cheap food and drink and tasted better than the bog standard restaurants surrounding the many landmarks found in Venice.

To sum it up, Guido made our holiday a much better experience, thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful apartment. I would not hesitate to return in the summer for a fantastic getaway.

All the best,

The happy couple

My wife and I just got back from a week in Venice at this location. Everything was absolutely great about this apartment. The best selling point was the owner who was very helpful and charming. The apartment was very nice and the upstairs bedroom and bath very comfortable.

At one point the heat stopped working and the owner came over promptly and quickly fixed the problem. (It was a battery issue - not to worry).

We loved this place. Everything was quite new and everything was just great!!!!!!

Thank you for the wonderful visit.

“A very easy friendly experience, great townhouse, great location.”

We decided to arrive in Venice by vaporetto, from the airport. Much more romantic than the bus! As arranged earlier via email, Guido met us at the Guglie stop in Cannaregio. He walked us to the accommodation, a two floor townhouse in a very quiet area five minutes from the train station. There, we fulfilled formalities and shared a bottle of prosecco. Guido then took us for a walk around the neighbourhood, filling us in with details drawn from his evident knowledge of the history of the area. It helped to 'ground' us in the place, and alert us to the fact that there is more to Venice than the standard tourist itinerary.

The accommodation itself was comfortable and warm; everything one would need for a self-catering trip was there. There is an en suite bathroom with shower in the bedroom upstairs, and another bathroom with a full sized bath on the ground floor. Being close to a vaporetto stop, it was very straight forward heading into the thick of things. We took advantage of this because the weather was rather inclement, but walking to San Marco would probably only take 30-40 minutes at a stroll.

Cannaregio is an interesting area in itself - laid back and still Venetian in vibe. The accommodation is close to the old Ghetto (and the new Ghetto, and the even newer Ghetto!). Anice Stellato (in Fondamenta de la Sensa, maybe 10-15 minutes walk from the apartment) was our favourite restaurant of those we visited while in Venice (followed closely by La Zucca in Santa Croce). Great food and very friendly staff.

All in all, Guido's pad is a great place to spend a few days visiting this rather extraordinary city. Good value too!
