Franco's favourite ... Venetian accomodation

Jump to last reply

My basic demand as to accomodations in Venice is that they have a well-equipped kitchen: I love to cook some meals on my own (since restaurants in Venice are most often more expensive than good, but the markets of Venice are splendid). Thus, I only book apartments, never a hotel room.
And there is (as seasoned Fodorites know all too well) one apartment that I prefer to any other, and I've recommended it often on Fodor's: the Rosa di Venezia (www.rosadivenezia.com). Other than having the well-equipped kitchen that I require, it boasts extraordinarily beautiful and tasteful furnishing and decoration (IMO, at least), and a tiny balcony with a stunning, terrific, splendid, unforgettable view on the small canal where it is located – actually, even a canal crossing. Btw, the Bridge of Sighs is on that very same canal, so the apartment is just around the corner (ok, two corners) from Piazza San Marco – even with many tourists, you wouldn't have to walk more than two minutes, and yet, the tourist crowds won't follow you to the apartment: they simply never turn around the (second) corner! It's the owners' own holiday apartment (they're not Italian, but Austrian), and they'll urge you to treat everything with respect (honestly, I'd do the same – they have some antique pieces of furniture in the apartment). The price of 160 Euros per night (and less for longer stays) seems more than reasonable to me.

If this apartment doesn't meet your taste or requirements, or if it is unavailable (as it happens to me, from time to time), try www.ladolcevitarentals.com for well-maintained budget accomodations; or www.vaporettovenice.com for some beautiful, but very pricey, apartments with excellent customers' service (I don't understand the prices they're giving on their website – maybe they're per person, or just valid from January 10th to 31st, at least, I've paid much more than they're indicating).

Please note: This thread is not primarily meant for discussion… it's primarily meant for substituting myself while work won't permit regular posting during the next six or so months. I'll try to check once a week, however, so if anyone would like me to answer any questions related to accomodation in Venice, please post them here – I won't unfortunately be able to browse all the other threads…
