The Dandolo apartment is centrally located only few meters from the San Tomà Vaporetto Stop and the famous Frari Church in the San Polo District
Bright and elegant, the Dandolo apartment is perfect for a romantic couple: the luxurious interiors and the stunning panoramic terrace are truly unique. From here you can observe the skyline of the historic centre of Venice in total privacy.
It is a fourth floor of about 70 square meters, part of a perfectly restored historic building found few steps from the San Tomà Vaporetto stop on the Grand Canal, a spot adored by Venetians for its strategic position and quietness: in fact it takes few minutes' walk to reach all the most important city landmarks. Just across the Grand Canal there is the San Marco District, while in the surroundings there are plenty of specialty shops and supermarkets, beside excellent restaurants and bars. The area is not too crowded but is very active both culturally and socially.
The lay out of the Dandolo is very rational: from the entrance room you can access the bedroom with a queen size bed and a wardrobe, the luxurious bathroom with large shower cabin, and the comfortable living room with a single sofa-bed and great panoramic view.
Walking through the living room you can access the spacious kitchen, which opens on the stunning terrace. You can use the terrace as a sundeck during the day or as an open-air dining room: in summer you can shelter it from the sun with an easy to use textile cover, while if you prefer to sunbathe there are two comfortable deckchairs.
A special mention goes to the bathroom’s marbles: it has been crafted with the essence of Carrara, Calacatta Macchia Oro, a unique and precious material with golden veins used since the Renaissance also for Michelangelo’s projects.
The caring landlady decorated her apartment with an interesting collection of artistic Murano Glasses, important contemporary art paintings and much sought-after furniture. The Dandolo is offered to our privileged guests in spotless conditions, equipped with every sort of comfort, including Wi-Fi, air-conditioning system, washing machine, dishwasher, oven, a set of professional cooking stoves, large fridge and freezer, etc.
We highly recommend the Dandolo to demanding travellers who set privacy, comfort and style on top of their priorities.
The view, the brightness and the quietness of this boutique attic will reward you once reached the fourth floor.

Apartment Dandolo is very conveniently situated just round the corner from the Santo Toma vapporetto stop. This was ideal for getting about the city ....although you can walk to most of the sights anyway. There is a very handy supermarket just round the corner and a superb bakery across the square. The apartment itself is up four flights of stairs. As long as you pack light and are reasonably fit it's not a problem. Anyway it will ease your conscience about all the nice food you will be consuming! The apartment has a small bedroom with sufficient storage space. We found the bed a bit on the firm side. The bathroom is well appointed with a twin shower and bidet. The sitting room is large, airy and comfortable. The TV only has Italian channels but this is Venice.....why would you be watching TV? The kitchen area overlooks the rooftops and is attractive. In practice the design could be better, we found the corner sink very awkward. Also there were no instructions for any of the equipment. This would have been very helpful. The rooftop terrace is quite attractive.....we didn't use it as the weather wasn't so good and most of the day we were out sightseeing. The view is average and doesn't compare with apartment Alba D'oro where you look out onto the Grand Canal......but none the less it is pleasant. Truly Venice are fantastic. They were extremely helpful throughout the booking process. They organised water taxis to meet us and take us back to the airport. We were met by their friendly rep who showed us the apartment and was very helpful. There was a bit of a problem with the water taxi on return but Daniella sorted this out for us very quickly and efficiently. I wouldn't hesitate to book with them again.October 2017, Mark (UK)
Just wanted to say a big thank you for organising our lovely trip to Venice a few weeks ago. Hope everything was left in order. The apartment was lovely. We tried the restaurants you had recommended which were equally amazing. Loved Venice will definitely be back. Best regardsJune 2017, Sue (United Kingdom)
The apartment is small but lovely and very central. It is only a few steps from one of the Vaporetto stops for longer trips, but central enough to walk to most places. A special mention is due for the bathroom which has a twin shower. The balcony was nice but we only used it in the evening as it was so hot during the day. Do note that the apartment is on the 4th floor, and up 78 steps with no lift. Also note that the air conditioning doesn't extend to the bedroom, but it was easy to cool the room down by leaving the door open with the air conditioning on in the lounge. We had an excellent stay and the Truly Venice staff were friendly and helpful.June 2017, Derek (St. Albans, UK)
