“Open the curtains!”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2012

To arrive at your front door by water taxi direct from the airport is a great way to start a break at Dogaressa. To open the curtains on your first morning is just unbelievable; gondoliers preparing their boats for a day's work against the backdrop of the Santa Maria della Salute- the church so close that you can almost reach out and touch it. To landward as well the location is wonderful, seconds from a main shopping street and minutes from San Marco, yet quiet and hidden away. The apartment is spacious although don't expect too many mod-cons. Would I recommend this property to lovers of Venice? Absolutely!

“Best view in Venice!”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2012

If you can stay at this apartment I recommend it because there are very few apartments in all of Venice with this amazing location and interior. It is half of the first floor of a large Palazzo with its own entrance on the main canal. It is next to the Regina hotel and has a view that is unmatched and positively amazing. We were three adults, two teenagers and a young couple. The place is huge with a breath taking marble entrance and private water taxi entrance, terrace with cushions on the canal, and a lovely courtyard. As others have written, two bedrooms with double beds are lovely, and two are smaller and quirky, so it is best for families rather than four couples. One bedroom with two twins with bath is off a central bedroom but it does have its own door that opens to the courtyard. The living room, central hall and one bedroom have canal views of passing gondolas. The apartment has a very large kitchen and dining room. The huge windows, shutters and wrought iron gates all work fine but since they are so large and older- they may require a bit more strength than you at first think you should use to open. The bath by the kitchen has a broken door lock and we all took turns locking ourselves in this room so beware. The refrigerator needs a good defrost. The WiFi worked great, the air conditioner in the living room worked well but didn't quite get to the bedroom facing the canal if you had the bedroom door closed but we had no problems because it was not hot yet in June. A few mosquitoes may slip in and annoy you so we kept the windows shut at night. Checking in and out were efficient, staff helped us arrange a private boat tour and arrangements for the private water taxi from the airport were easily arranged via their web site online. I doubt there is a hotel at any cost that has a better view and location. It was the highlight of our stay in Venice!

Un appartamento da sogno, nel punto più bello di Venezia. La casa è grandissima, giardino privato e vista della Basilica dalla camera da letto e dal salone. Sembra di avere tutta Venezia ai propri piedi. Raccomandatissimo, vale la cifra che costa.

“Wonderful experience in Venice”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2012

Wounderful experience in Venice staying at the fantastic Dogaressa appartment a few minutes walk to St Mark's Square. Arrival and checking-in as easy as it can get - the water taxi dropped us off at the steps of the Palazzo on the Grand Canal. Stunning views of many famous sites right from your very own terrace - a great place for a coffee (January visit) and we're sure a great place to share a bottle of wine in the Summer. Venice was equally enjoyed by our two children (aged 12 and 10). We would recommend the Doges Palace Secret Itinary Tour, but look to book in advance during busy times. Allow yourself time to wander the charming streets and, although expensive, our gondola ride is a memory that we will never forget.

“We loved the location”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2012

The venue is stunning. However we felt more could have been supplied with regard to linen, toilet paper and cleaning materials for the kitchen.

The photos on the website do not do this wonderful apartment justice. It is beautifully appointed, full of history, enormous and in a fabulous location. I will cherish the balmy evenings on the balcony watching the water traffic and the gondoliers packing up their boats. Expensive but worth every cent..The staff of Truly Venice went out of their way to assist us with all our issues.

“Mind blowingly marvellous.”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2011

You swoosh up to Dogaressa in a water taxi driven by adorable David, and the miracle unfolds! The apartment is bliss, our welcoming Letitia could not have been more helpful.She found us a heavenly maid Maria and she patiently answered all our questions and filled our map with helpful locations, markets, restaurants and travel suggestions..Beds were all beautifully made up and the location is breath taking.Imagine opening your windows onto a South facing little cushion filled terrace, with one of Venice's most beautiful churches, St Maria della Salute, right opposite, and sleeping with the sound of the waters of The Grand Canal lapping on the gondoliers outside!Just incredible. Great travel company and great holiday for all our family. Cannot recommend more highly.

“Fabulous outlook and convenient location”

Reviewed 9 May 2011

This property has a truly wonderful outlook over the Grand Canal and the ability to while away the time on the terrace watching the world go by made our trip. The property is very spacious - you could lose people in there! It was good for the children and for granny too (as easy access direct from the Grand Canal). The staff at Truly Venice were very helpful indeed and answered all of our queries without delay. There is one bedroom overlooking the canal, the others are a bit gloomy and in need of updating. The guest room at the rear - was ok for our young children but at this price, other guests would be very disappointed. The difference in room quality was not an issue for our family group, but I suspect could cause problems for a group of friends using this property.

I'm still awaiting a receipt however for the cash balance paid, as requested.
