Appartamento Dino C is a nice 50-square-meter (about 540 square feet) apartment which sleeps five people. It is located in the center of Venice , 400 meters (about 440 yards) from the Canal Grande (Grand Canal), 8 minutes from railway station, only 5 minutes from Piazzale Roma and a 15-minute walk from Piazza San Marco (which is approximately 2 km/1 mile away).

Appartamento Dino B has a triple bedroom, a living area with a divan bed to sleep two people, a bathroom with whirlpool bath tub and shower wand.
Appartamento Dino is on... the second floor of an ancient Venetian building of the fifteenth century. The building, in the characteristic Gothic style, is composed of three rental apartments, Appartamento Dino A, B and C, a few private apartments owned and inhabited by locals, and a small hotel with only ten rooms.
As a guest of the apartment you will be able to enjoy the 24-hour reception services, the bar of the hotel (extra cost), request morning breakfast (extra cost), or use the Internet point (first 10 minutes are free of charge, then a small charge applies).
The apartments have been carefully restored in 2006. They are furnished with elegant antique pieces, decorated with original lamps in Murano glass and their walls are coated with refined and colorful Venetian plaster. Most rooms still boast the original floors that were renovated in the seventeenth century, carefully maintained by the loving hand of the owners.
You will reach Appartamento Dino climbing 50 steps from the entrance of the building (there is no elevator).
From the entrance door you will enter the living area. The room is equipped with a table with chairs and a kitchen with two electric burners, microwave oven, and refrigerator. The room is nicely furnished. It has a satellite television and a sofa that unfolds in a double beds, to sleep two guests.
From the living room you will be able to reach the bedroom and the bathroom.
The bedroom has a double bed (can be replaced with two single beds if requested), as well as a single bed. The bathroom is elegant and has a nice Jacuzzi whirlpool tub and a shower wand. The rooms of Appartamento Dino C have a view of the adjacent buildings.
A broadband Internet connection is available for your laptop at no charge through a standard Ethernet port (bring your own cable or borrow one at the reception).
Appartamento Dino is situated in the historical center of Venice, in the Sestiere of Santa Croce (a "Sestiere" is one of the six neighborhoods into which Venice is divided). This area of Venice was originally just a handful of tiny islands scattered in the marsh, inhabited by wolves rather than by men. It developed slowly over centuries, with the hard labor of the locals, who were able to develop an urban area out of the unfriendly environment.
