It was fine. Good location, nice and roomy with comfortable bed. However, we were paying for an apartment, and to be told that we had to pay 50 Euros to have the kitchen unlocked (they actually had locks on the cooking section!!) for a 3 night stay was just not right. We opted not to do that and ate out instead, but when I book an apartment, I expect to have full use of the kitchen without a costly extra fee. It was yet another "extra" to use the clothes washing machine too. I have stayed in apartments all over Europe and never encountered this meanness before - it should be described as a hotel room where you can pay extras if you want to use the kitchen or clothes washing facilities.
The staff were cordial, but when we asked for an extra (little and paper) map of Venice, because they had only given us one, we were told that would be one Euro more. We declined. This is an ungenerous attitude, especially as this is not particularly cheap.
They recommended a couple of restaurants, but again, we found better ones ourselves.
It was OK, but not up to the starry reviews I have seen here.
