The Dino Apartments are part of an ancient Venetian building of the fifteenth century. The building, in the characteristic Gothic style, is composed of four rental apartments, a few private apartments owned and inhabited by locals, and a small hotel with only ten rooms.
This ancient building is situated in the Sestiere of Santa Croce (a "Sestiere" is one of the six neighborhoods into which Venice is divided). This area of Venice was originally just a handful of tiny islands scattered in the marsh, inhabited by wolves rather than by men. It developed slowly over centuries, with the hard labor of the locals, who were able to develop an urban area out of the unfriendly environment.
As a guest of the apartment you will be able to enjoy the 24-hour reception services, the bar of the hotel (extra cost), request morning breakfast (extra cost), or use the Internet point (first 10 minutes are free of charge, then a small charge applies).
The apartments have been carefully restored in 2006. They are furnished with elegant antique pieces, decorated with original lamps in Murano glass and their walls are coated with refined and colorful Venetian plaster. Most rooms still boast the original floors that were renovated in the seventeenth century, carefully maintained by the loving hand of the owners.
The building is only an eight-minute walk away from the Railway Station of Santa Lucia (Stazione Ferroviaria di Santa Lucia), which connects Venice to the mainland. The Canal Grande, the main water street in Venice, is only 400 meters (about 440 yards) away. Piazzale Roma is at only 5 minutes. You can reach Piazza San Marco (which is approximately 1.2 miles away) and the Ponte di Rialto either by taking a boat or a fifteen-minute stroll.
The furnishings of the living room are elegant and welcoming, and include some antique pieces. The furnishings include two single divan beds. In the living room you will also find a cooking area.
