Beautiful modern apartment at the beginning of the Castello quarter, Salizada San Lio. Extremely central- 2 minutes walk from Rialto and 10 minutes from San Mark Square, yet in a very Venetian area served by local shops, cafes and restaurants. By San Lio Church, and just off S.Maria Formosa and Santa Marina squares with their lively open air cafes. In S.Maria Formosa two Art Museums -Fondazione Querini Stampalia and Palazzo Grimani, and lots more art to discover in the area.

Excellent location: 5 minutes to St Mark's Square; 3 minutes to Rialto Bridge Vaporetto station; 3 minutes to supermarket, several restaurants just downstairs. Recent renovations translated to new appliances; full stock of kitchen ware, nice white firm sofa; firm beds and pillows; ample lighting, ample hot water, new windows and shutters when shut render the apartment nice and quiet for sleeping. Handy elevator. We appreciated the full appliances: electric kettle, microwave, dishwasher. Handy clothes rack for hanging washed clothes. Temperature control easy to adjust. Our only inconvenience was that the washing machine did not wash, rinse, or spin effectively even though we followed its manual instructions to a T and tried different settings. We ended up hand-washing our clothes.

A very comfortable and generally well appointed apartment in a quiet location near the Rialto Bridge - perfectly positioned for walking to the main historic attractions. The accommodation is ideally suited to sharing by two couples. As first time visitors to Venice the meet and greet service was welcome, as were suggestions on the location of nearby supermarkets and restaurants. Our main niggle was the paucity of lighting in the living room. A small supply of dishwasher tablets for our four night stay would also have been appreciated.

Notre séjour a été parfait dans ce bel appartement très bien agencé (beaucoup d'équipements) et très bien situé. La location est tout à fait conforme à la description faite à la réservation et sur le site. Très bon accueil lors de notre arrivée.
Je conseille vivement cette location parfaite.

This was our second flat rental using The Red House Company and our 6th. visit to Venice. As with our last rental the property is of a very high standard and we could find no fault. The location is perfect, 2 minutes from Rialto and 8 minutes from St. Mark's Square. It is virtually on top of a good restaurant (Taverna San Lio) and 1 min. away from two great bars with excellent ciccheti (Il Portego and Il Rusteghi).
The booking and check in process was very easy with the booked taxi meeting us exactly as described, phones being answered quickly and the friendly and knowledgable Pietro meeting us from the boat.
Suffice to say that we will be back to Venice in a year or two and we will use this company again. We'll not bother looking elsewhere.
"Nice apartment in good condition, near city center"

Nice apartment with 2 bedrooms; newly renovated. New furniture with kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine). Pretty good situated between San Marco and Rialto. Due to the central Position, can be a bit noisy at night.

Excellent experience; apartment is clean, great location. It is close to Realto, St Marco and supermarkets. It was as advertised, well suited for 4 people, and we had no surprises. The only improvement I can suggest is to add more light in the bedrooms. Check-in and check-out were easy and on time. Landlord met us on arrival and accompanied to the apartment, gave us many useful advices and recommendations. It is highly recommended for those who wants to have a great Venice experience. The apartment is well equipped and serviced in a quite but central location.

I stayed with my family in this gorgeous 2 bedroom apartment while visiting Venice for Carnival. Marco met us at the vaparetto at the Rialto bridge and escorted us directly to The Lions House.
This place is completely decked out with beautiful modern decor. You almost feel guilty about touching anything because it is so perfect inside.
The living area/kitchen has 2 big windows that let in amazing light. If you are tired of exploring the sights of Venice, there is still much to be seen from the living space. There is an alley down below that is perfect for people watching.
The location was ideal and very quite. If it's your first visit to Venice expect to learn your landmarks. We actually enjoyed getting lost in the alleys and would often stumble upon something beautiful along the way.
I truly cherished my visit to Venice and look forward to staying at the Lion's House apartment again...
Thank you Marco!

L'ottima accoglienza, la disponibilit?, la posizione della casa, l'arredamento nuovo (comprensivo di tutti i confort) e gli utili consigli sui ristoranti, hanno aiutato a rendere il weekand rilassante e piacevole.
