Tania was SUPER helpful during check in, even though we were late for 3 hours! She spent time explaining the local attractions, restaurants, and shopping areas before taking us to our room. The rooms are wonderful with a home like feeling which is great. The location of this hotel is great, despite being at the center, it is very quiet!

Beautifully appointed apartment with all your needs anticipated. Classic modern interiors in an well maintained canal side building located in the middle of Venice. Each morning we were greeted with a smile and planning our day began, including suggestions and reservations made for restaurants, tours and places to visit. Returning each day felt like coming home knowing comfort awaits.

Wonderful stay at this property! I highly rate this as the perfect romantic couples getaway. The staff are amazing and the location is superb. Thank you to the staff and the beautiful people of Venice!

Look no further than Charming House IQs for the perfect stay in Venice, particularly if you are a family or small group. First, the location was fantastic. Everything in Venice was a 5-10 minute walk. Gondoliers were eye-level through the window at a crossing of two canals. The building was full of charm and history. It was amazing. Second, the two bedroom/two bath unit itself was clean, spacious and perfectly set out for our family of 5. We were so comfortable and slept very well after our busy days of sight-seeing. Third, and most important, the service was exceptional! Akim and Tania are superstars. Of particular note, after a very late flight and exceptionally high tide, Akim went above and beyond with the service, literally carrying my kids, my luggage and ME through very high water when our water taxi could not make it under the bridges to the suite! What a way to be greeted after a long flight from California. After wading through the low-lying street, we made it to the building around 1:00 a.m. He showed us the suite and made sure we were settled in. The next morning, Tania took the time to orient us to the city and made excellent recommendations and restaurant reservations. They thought of everything--coffee, Prosecco and Easter chocolate for our kids. Venice is not a cheap place to visit and accommodations are pricey. However, in terms of the price we paid for this apartment, the service we received, the logistics they arranged, and the experiences we had, I feel like we found an exceptional value in Charming House IQs. I would recommend any of the Charming House properties in Venice. And if management is reading this review, please take good care of Akim and Tania!

We booked the Suite in the Charming House Iqs during Christmas time. Everything is very cozy there, the Suite is realy huge with excellent design, right in the center. We stayed in the Suite Q3, it is the brightest one. The staff is very kind and profesional. Highly recommend this place.

The staff and the hotel are great; for us the process began right after the reservation was complete. I contacted the hotel and arranged for a water taxi transfer to IQS from the local airport. After 16 hours of travel, it was simply lovely to follow someone to a taxi, transfer to a water taxi, and then arrive at the doorsteps to the hotel where the friendly staff received us. As a family of five, we were booked into a suite that included a kitchenette (including a 24" combination dishwasher and range for you appliance aficionados), two bedrooms and a fold out couch. It was perfect for our family of five. The staff greeted us with a lovely cake and the Nespresso machine got a good workout each morning. The hotel is located but a 5 minute walk from the basilica San Marco, the Doge's palace, and so on. A well-stocked small supermarket (coop) is about 2 minutes away, a good bakery (Farini) is only 3 minutes further. Cafe's and Gelaterias are in abundance, as are good nearby eating choices such as the Barbacini restaurant. The rooms were furnished quite modern with everything working as intended. The kids got a great kick out of the Hotels Netflix subscription (Pokemon XY, yay!) and the parents enjoyed the relative quiet of their bedroom to read up on what we'd do next. The location of the hotel puts you close to many different neighborhoods. While the hotel does not appear to offer laundry services (I didn't ask, however), there really is no need. Simply walk over to Lavenderia Gabriella (9 minutes) and drop off your wash and fold. Two hours later, it'll be done and you'll be glad! It is so much easier to travel lightly in a place like Venice where you have to go up and down steps for the various bridges all the time. The hotel staff were friendly throughout our stay, were happy to make restaurant suggestions as well as reservations. Our rooms were always nicely cleaned up! Since this is a small hotel chain, getting someone after hours can be a bit of waiting game but our calls were always answered. Thus, I recommend this hotel highly. When the time came to leave, the hotel staff came out to see us off.

We stayed at the Charming House IQs during my cousins 50th birthday tour of Italy and it was honestly the best place we stayed. The location was so close to St Mark's Square (less than 5 minutes walk) so perfect for getting up early and seeing the sunrise :) Despite this, it's still a very quiet area so no problem. The room itself is very comfortable, bigger than we expected with got everything you need. Good wifi speed etc. The reason you should pick this as your base though is because of their hospitality. It was first class, I couldn't thank them enough for everything they did for my cousin to make her feel special for her birthday. They communicated very well before we arrived and even though we arrived early and out of the check in times, there was somebody there to greet us. They also got us some fresh pastries every morning from a trendy local bakery which were superb and a really nice touch. Thanks to everyone there for such an amazing stay and I hope to come back when it's slightly warmer and get lost in Venice once again.

We had a wonderful stay. Our apartment was perfect. We were greeted each morning with croissants from a local bakery. We asked for a tour and were connected with a local tour guide. The apartment was a short walk to major attractions, but in a quiet part of the city. I would definitely stay there again.

A set of three apartments that are very well located is the Castello part of Venice. These are great of you would a local feel to Venice. The staff are very welcoming and all apts have small kitchen, coffee maker, and small cooking console. Iqs provide nespresso type coffee, creamer and croissants daily from well renowned local bakery. This is a not a standard hotel but rather a home away from home. As a frequent traveler, I appreciated the privacy. Quaint old world charm centrally located with all the amenities of modern life. 3 minute walk to nearby grocery and fitness center with day passes. Multiple restaurants in close proximity that make for a nice digestive stroll around the city after a 4 course Italian meal.

I recently spent Christmas in Venice and visited one of my favourite hotels ever, IQs!!!! What can I say; perfect location just on Campo santa Maria Formosa, walking distance to Piazza San Marco and ponte Rialto. I visited the suite that was amazingly decorated, the staff was friendly and gave me good restaurant suggestions as well as advice on what museums to visit. I came with my boyfriend this time so it is perfect for a nice romantic getaway:). Highly recommend booking this place!!!!!
