This apartment is huge (although it only sleeps 2) and in a great spot. It has cool decor and a great view of a canal. However, it was very expensive, and for this you get a really terrible bed. You may have read this in other reviews. It is pretty indescribable. The only way I can think of describing it is if you threw a bunch of laundry in the ground, then decided to sleep in that pile. Weird to say the least. I'm not sure if this is on purpose, or if it is as old as the building. Minus a star. What about the other star? The house says it has an iron. Great, I needed to get ready for an event, iron a shirt. I plugged in the iron and after about 30 seconds the power in the entire house cut out. It wasn't the breaker in the house, but at the back of the stairs for the whole apartment. Okay, I go past the workers (talk an that in a few) and hit the breaker. Go back up, kill all the lights, shut off the AIR conditioner, plug it into a circuit breaker, then try again. Boom, power off. Work a wrinkly shirt for an expensive photo shoot. Minus half a star. The other half came from unknown, to me, renovations 6th were being done starting at 7:30. I was up, but its kind of B.S. to walk into the hallway and then be told, oh yeah... renovations at being done. Others would probably have pitcbed a fit being woken up to hammering and drilling so early without any notice or reduction in price. I'm sure there are way nicer places in Venice to stay for the price. If you do choose to stay, make sure you keep the T.V. unplugged, it turns on automatically. Also, if you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs or the sound of water flowing through the main sewage pipe for the building (located in the wall right next to THE bed) might keep you up at night.
