Please help me choose my Venice apartment

Jump to last reply

For our 3 night trip to Venice in early May 2007, I am in the process of selecting our apartment for my family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids) plus my single brother = 6 persons. Here are my options:

OPTION 1: TIEPOLO

Apartment in Castello area - for the price, canal view, comfortable living space: 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.


OPTION 2: GRITTI _ 210Euros more than Tiepolo for the 3 night stay.

Near Rialto. Beautiful grand canal view! And I love the main bedroom. This would have been my first choice but Tiepolo was much cheaper (210 Euros less) so it got bumped up to first choice. This apartment has only 1 bathroom and 2 bedrooms. The 3rd double bed is a sofa bed in the large living room which my 2 kids wouldn't mind using.:)

Please comment on location. Many have commented on the DORSODURO area to be their favorite but was unsuccessful in finding one in that area. Comments on the CASTELLO area? specifically the area where the TIEPOLI apartment is?

GOOD LOCATION for me would be in a quiet not so touristy area, but accessible to important sites and convenient to reasonable local restaurants, market and grocery. We plan to do a combination of dining out and preparing some quick meals in the apartment.

If the location of the GRITTI aparment is much better, would you pay the extra money for the location and the beautiful grand canal view??(I hope the view from the apartment is as good as it looks in the picture..)

Has anyone stayed in either of these apartments??

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
