What Past Guests Are Saying
Fantastic canal-side apartment in great location
Firstly, Truly Venice were marvellous to deal with. We are so glad we found them. Secondly, we absolutely loved staying in this apartment for our week-long anniversary celebration holiday in Venice. It is the first time we have stayed in an apartment and we'll never go back to hotels again. Orseolo is beautifully fitted out to make you feel you are in a home from home, plus it has the most adorable courtyard where you can eat and drink in complete privacy. It is in such a great location, close to the accademia bridge and the main sites in Venice are a 10-15 min walk away. We found our local square had everything we needed from the supermarket, restaurants, cafes and museums. Not only that, it was so friendly that the local shopkeepers were soon calling out hellos to us as we passed by each day. We didn't want to leave and plan to go back again on our next anniversary. If you pick the Orseolo, you will be comfortable, relaxed and in a great part of Venice to enjoy your holiday. Do not hesitate to book.
A nice apartment
This was our second stay in a 'Truly Venice' apartment and we enjoyed it very much. The location in Dorsoduro is very convenient, although being right on the through route from the Rialto to accademia/St Marks made it noisy at times in the living-room. We found some excellent restaurants and bars close by.
The bedroom is a bit cramped and dark, but the living room is light and welcoming, which is more important. The internet connection was very good. The kitchen had more useless than useful utensils in it, but had a full oven, microwave and huge fridge. No dishwasher. What we missed most was a coffee maker; all that was supplied was a tiny stove-top percolator, which we needed to use twice (risking burnt fingers) to get one decent size cup each. The outside space was a nice addition, but shaded for most of the day and very overlooked, so we only used it once.
On the whole, an apartment to recommend; very Venetian

We stayed a week in the Orseolo apartment in august 2011. It was even better than we thought it would be. The location was perfect: on a small canal that connected with the Grand Canal less than a block away, in a quiet residential neighborhood and very close to the accademia Vaporetto stop and the Zattere where we took walks, shopped for groceries, and watched the activities at the gondola workshop at the end of our street and canal. As soon as we woke up in the comfortable bedroom with windows that opened onto our small courtyard, we turned on the coffee pot in the kitchen and then opened the three large windows in the dining area of the living room to enjoy whatever activities were happening on the little canal a few feet from the windows. We loved to see the working boats, water taxis, and small private boats go by or stop to deliver supplies to the restaurant and shops across the canal from our apartment and to pick up the garbage people put out carefully early each morning and to sweep the sidewalks. It made us appreciate how much work it is to make daily deliveries and collections when canals are involved. The kitchen was delightful to look at as well as to use and all the appliances worked well. We were sorry to leave this great apartment when our week was over. We've already recommended the apartment to several friends.
When we arrived in Venice, Pietro met us at the accademia vaporetto stop and helped us with our luggage and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment and how things in it worked (TV, AC, washing machine, locks, etc.). He made us feel that we had a friend in Venice whom we could call on if we ran into problems. By coincidence, we ran into Pietro two more times during our visit when we were walking around. He is a real asset to the company!

Perfect flat in perfect location for us
We loved this flat and would quite happily live there permanently !
This was our sixth visit to Venice so we know parts of it pretty well, and for us this was the perfect location - close to our favourite restaurants, wine shops, ice cream shop and good vaporetto (Ca'Rezzonico/Accademia/Zattere) & airport boat connections. The flat was beautifuuly furnished and well equipped (allowing for the fact that holiday rental kitchens are never as good as your own for knives etc), it had airconditioning in the bedroom and the rest kept quite cool as it didn't get direct sun. Although it is on the ground floor it is up a couple of steps and there was no sign of acqua alta damage, so I think it would be fine all year round (in fact the washing machine, shared with the owner upstairs, is on a lower level so that must be OK). We were also thrilled to have our own private courtyard where we could sit outside and we ate there whenever eating in.
The only issue may be noise, for anyone who is used to living somewhere very quiet (we don't). It is just off the main route from the accademia to Rialto, so with the windows open we could often hear groups of passers-by talking, plus the sounds of boats & boatmen on the canal outside; and when sitting outside at night there was some noise from the bar round the corner. But inside, with the windows shut, it was perfectly quiet.
We would certainly recommend this flat and hope to stay there again. I would also highly recommend the agency Truly Venice who were extremely efficient and professional.
