Breakfast room very narrow (one of the few non-positive issues of this hotel). Multi-language conversant and pleasant staff. If we shall visit again Venice, definetely we'll choose the same Locanda Canal Hotel.

I found the hotel much better than the reviews I had read. While the directions given on your site were way off, it was very hard to find the hotel. It was very near the San Marco piazza, and many amenities nearby. There was very poor soundproofing, and I could hear neighbors talking and more than I needed to hear. The breakfast was okay. Some hotel workers were more available and helpful than others. Overall, I found the room much larger than I expected, and enjoyed my stay. There were others from various parts of the world. The computer was handy and available.

The most tiny shower I had ever seen.... I didn' like the fact that several of the rooms are directly on the breakfast room...Three steps down and you are walking ON the people drinking their coffee...and this people can hear you speaking in the room. The hotel is well situated (steps from St Marco)but need to be updated, particularly the bathroom which is very, very small and offers nothing to hang your clothes and put your soap in the moldy shower. Hôtel bien situé, accueil à 14 heures par personnel d'entretien, puis par manager.Vous disposez des clefs de l'hotel, donc liberté. Douche minuscule, avec des joints moisis...(si le savon tombe, impossible de le ramasser sans sortir de la douche...),rien pour poser ses affaires.Odeur dans la chambre à l'arrivée. Deux chambres donnent directement, par 3 marches à descendre, sur les tables du petit déjeuner... Il ne faut pas espérer de calme le matin. Pire, les personnes qui déjeunent sont quasiment avec vous dans la chambre et entendent les conversations ou activités ce qui est vraiment gênant.

The room had been very small but clean. number 101, a little bit noisy at the morning, because the breakfast room ist just round the corner. And to the breakfast room are going 3 doors to other rooms, you can hear the people talking inside. Will not imagine beeing inside during the morning while other tourists are taking their breakfast. And there are about 3 steps to this rooms, so that there is not enough space to sit on the very small round tables, interruppted from the stairs to these rooms. Breakfast is O.K. At night you can hear the music (radio?)of the indian employee in the very small lobby downstaris. Because we hat the first rooom abouve (nr. 101). Next time we choose another hotel in this corner. The hotel is very near to San Marco and not too far to the ferries and vaporettos.

We were very satisfied with the location of the hotel and the staff. We intend to use this hotel again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend it. There was a good variety of restaurants in the area, shops etc. We were taking our daughter to stay in Venice for the first time - she thoroughly enjoyed her stay. The staff were very good and very helpful. It helped that they were fluent in english. The rooms were very clean. The breakfast was more than adequate and pleasant. The location was very good for St Marks. The hotel has a flight of stairs to the rooms but the stairs were not steep at all and they do have a chair lift.

Breakfast is okay, only one croissant each, but get in early for the Nutella.

This was an AMAZING location. The directions from the train station via water bus were perfection. I recommend water buses over water taxis. Much more affordable. After you walk off the pier for the 1 line, you walk straight up the alley. Walk up the alley to the left once you reach the dead end, then turn left past the shops and then right down another alley. I only say this because once you get off the boat it is a tad difficult to find the hotel. But just ask for help and you'll find it. Would DEFINITELY stay here again!!! Also, it's only a 10 minute boat ride to the island of Murano. A MUST!

The room was clean as were all the common areas. The staff was friendly however, they didn't quite speak the level of English I was expecting based on what I'd read about them before I booked. Also, they tended to recommend things to do and places to eat based on if (I believe) they were to receive a commission. The first time that happened we were confused because the lady explaining it had poor English. All we knew is that we were going to Murano in a water taxi. AT which point we were met with an English speaking guide with a cheesy sales pitch to buy his glass. It wasn't a bad experience because the taxi ride was nice and the glass was beautiful but it was just a weird situation. Then she recommended us to go to a "buenissima" restaurant in teatro fenice. Oh, but don't forget to tell them that WE sent you. Um, no thank you. A+ on the room. Staff was definitely nice but I wouldn't necessarily listen to their recommendations because they have ulterior motives.

This property is really more like a bed and breakfast as a American traveler would probably perceive it. It doesn't have a 24 hour staff. In fact, you are given a key to the front door of the hotel as no one is there to let you in after late in the evening. The staff was very friendly and worked hard to make us happy. Our room was stuffy as the Air Conditioning had not yet been turned on for the season. It was very expensive for the quality by American Standards, however, it is in Venice and you Pay for the location.

Unlike hotels in other tourist locations we've visited, this hotel was really just a room to sleep in. There was no actual lobby, just a guy at a small desk at the entrance. Breakfast was pastries and packaged cookies that were probably purchased in local grocery stores. The night employee practically refused to give us another towel (had 3 towels for 4 people), then when I insisted, he pulled it from the closet and pitched it on the floor near me. But overall, it was a clean and comfortable room and nothing else from the hotel.

As far the quietness issue, that was because of the noise coming from outside our window.The stret outside of our window had pallets that people had to walk over mad a clomping sound along with the windows not keeping out the noise very well at all. As far as the surounding issue, everything was great except for the same street outside of our window. I don't know who is suppose to maintain it,but it was the dirtiest street that we were on in Venice. Besides the pallets lying in the middle of it, there was trash, dog waste and a pile of dirt up against the building. Other than this, we had a very good and enjoyable experience. T he lady that took care of the breakfast bar and cleaned our room did an EXCELLENT job.

I stayed at Locanda Canal in early September 2008 and I found it to be an excellent choice. The biggest plus of all is that it is only a 5 minute amble from St Mark's Square. The staff are friendly and helpful. The second biggest plus is the lovely little balcony where you can sit and hear the men talk in their gondolas, or you can stand and see a lovely view of the canal. The amenities were also very good--excellent air conditioning, and an amazing shower. The room was clean and fine, if a little small. It was very quiet there, which was a bonus. The only real downside of the hotel was its breakfast, which was mediocre at best (no cereal (besides old corn flakes), no fruit, and no hot food (not even toast, I think)), with a tiny eating area with cramped tables. Still, even there there was a good point, in that breakfast is between 8 and 10, which is good for a late riser like me! Another negative which I did not experience is that I have heard that some people can book this hotel, only to find when they get there that they have to go to another hotel-but that didn't happen to me, and I don't think it applies to that many people. Overall, a really good experience, and I would definitely recommend it for anyone without children.

A comfortable basic hotel. It is very centrally located - five minutes walk, at the most, from Piazza San Marco. One unusual feature; they ask you to keep you hotel keys with you when you leave the hotel because the door is often locked even during the day. Usually there is a receptionist present but apparently not always - they sometimes have to go to another property - so don't lose your keys. There seems to be only one floor for the rooms and there is no lift. Another thing; make sure you know where the hotel is situated as it is by no means the easiest place to find.

The location is excellent, overlooking one of Venice's many beautiful canals, my room had a private balcony and terrace, however, the Hotel Locanda Canal is NOT by any means a three star hotel as advertised. They have day-old danish and lukewarm hot chocolate for breakfast, and not much else. The hotel desk staff are not very helpful, they could not even break a 50 euro bill for me. I had to request another pillow because they are so flat. They are only a short walk to the Piazza San Marco, and have a great view from the room I had, but not any other rooms. I liked my room, but did not care for the hotel itself very much.

This was a lovely hotel to stay in. Excellent location and lovely service. The room we had was warm, clean and well appointed. We had a private bathroom (tiny shower) and the room contained a double bed, closet, desk and tv. Not huge, but certainly big enough! The breakfasts were really simple and nice - croissants, bread, pie, biscuits, grissini, coffee (delicious!), juice and cheese/jam etc. All staff spoke Italian and some English - enough for us to be understood anyway. It was also excellent to have a free Internet computer available to hotel customers. Our only concern with this place, was that we stayed here over New Year's Eve 07/08 so had to pay significantly higher room charges than we otherwise would have in the off season. Still, in comparison to other places in Venice at that time, it was well priced- 880 euros for two people for 5 nights. I would certainly recommend this place!

We reserved two days to stay in Locanda Canal, but ended up only staying one day due to our early morning flight from the airport, and our unwillingness to pay top dollar for a water taxi at 3 in the morning. Overall, we were very happy with Locanda Canal - we stayed in a room next to the breakfast area, but it was not terribly loud. We'd hoped to have a view, but our window opened up into a narrow, dirty alley. Again, it was fine - we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. The one disappointment was in having to pay for the 2nd night even though we didn't stay there, which is somewhat understandable. The breakfast was the most generous and varied of any of our Italian hotels, and the room was bigger than we expected. As I said, overall it was a perfectly acceptable room, and not overly priced (in comparison to other Venice hotels).

Get SPECIFIC directions! You cannot simply exit the vaporetto and stumble into the hotel. We wandered for nearly two hours in the rain, so irritated with each other that we finally split up on the bet that the last one to the hotel had to buy dinner that night....the kids and I won! Also, do not visit Venice without a compass and a very good map! All that said, the hotel was a good value and in a convenient central location. While the room was a little snug for four it met our needs, and the bathroom was downright spacious (see photo) which helped with changing clothes, etc. We didn't have a view as we were directly across and 8' away from a home, but it was nice to open the (two) windows and shutters over the road/alley below and still have privacy. The ceiling was very hight, and the furniture had a bit of character and style. Be sure to visit the Rialto Bridge, San Marcos, and the Grand Canal. DO NOT plan to visit Venice in a mere 24 hours, unless you are on a tour....especially if you are going to spend several hours lost in the rain with your luggage! Ciao.

Séjour de deux nuits dans cet hotel. Parfait pour un court séjour. Pas évident à trouver sans carte mais le personnel est compétent français/anglais/italien. Zone très calme au bord d'un canal, endroit très. Assez central pour un petit hotel.

My room was beautiful and very spacious. The bathroom is on the small size though. The staff, Claudio, Tuffik and Renato were very nice. The location is perfect, a couple of blocks away from St. Mark's Square. This was my first time in Venice, and looking forward to go back again. One tip: I had a very hard time trying to exchange traveller's checks. The exchange houses charge a very high percentage on the total amount, and not all of the banks take them, they only charge a one time fee that can go up to 15 euros. Most businessess would not take them. So do some research about using your own ATM card and what fees will be added every time you get money. The most important thing: Travel Light! As you are going to be doing a lot of walking to get to the hotel. Also, there is no elevator, and you will have to take your own bags to the 2nd floor.

We were moved to the sister hotel cause he was booked and the other hotel was beatiful. The only problem is when we got home and checked our charge card they charged us 3 times for the room cause there visa machine did not have paper in and the clerk kept swippin the card. But the up gradeed room for the same price was much nicer.

excellent interior of rooms - you feel like in Medieval Venice; convenient location in the very center (3-4 minutes to S.Marco); nice surroundings (quite canal and typical houses); more than excellent selection of TV programs; small bathroom; breakfast is rather limited. generally, the hotel is really splendid; shortcomings are fully compensated by its advantages; when I come to Venice next time, I will stay in this hotel again. Price always seems too high, but compared to the market level and other hotel prices, Locanda Canal offers quite adequate rates

Map and directions were good. However, we missed the last turn on our first attempt because we didn't walk far enough into the little courtyard to see the small passageway on the right to the hotel. (We came from the San Zaccharia vaporetto stop.) But as getting lost in Venice is part of the fun, we didn't mind retracing our steps a few times until we saw a kind gentleman pointing towards the little passageway opening. Apparently this happens a good bit of the time.

I stayed in a single room at the Hotel Locanda Canal in Venice for four nights in April 2007, after booking it on Venere.com. The Locanda Canal is a three-star hotel, and the rate quoted was 120 euros a night. As things turned out, the hotel was perfectly suited to my needs. It was a five-minute walk from the San Zaccaria vaporetto stop, and the walk was entirely level (with no ups and downs over canals) so that I could wheel my luggage all the way there. It was my first visit to Venice, and the map provided at the hotel's own website was a godsend. (This matters. During my four days in Venice, everywhere I looked I saw lost tourists, toting huge amounts of baggage, searching in vain for their hotels.) As well, the hotel was only about a two-minute walk from Saint Mark's Square. The room was a typical size for a three-star hotel in Europe (and considerably smaller than a typical North American or Australian hotel room, of course). It even had a small terrace, with a table and two chairs, overlooking the canal below. It had a full tile bathroom which was a bit cramped, particularly to access the shower stall, but spotlessly clean. The room was elegantly furnished, as were the public spaces including the breakfast room. Breakfast was a perfect start to the day, consisting of croissants, fruit, yogourt, and coffee, served on small tables with linen tablecloths. There was also a computer station provided, at which hotel guests could check their e-mail. At check-out, the price I was charged for the four nights was exactly 480 euros. There were no surprise last-minute charges of any kind. Without question, I would stay there again and would recommend it to others.

While I agree that the hotel was difficult to find, we asked many nice people and eventually got there. To be fair, everything in Venice is hard to find! One employee in particular was extremely helpful with suggestions of where to eat and how to get water buses, etc. The rooms were nice (I was in two different ones), and the breakfast was adequate. I'd stay there again.

The Locanda Canal has a good location and close enough to St. Mark's Square and next to another good square, San Maria Fromoso?. It was hard to find as most things are in Venice. Only complaint is our room (102) was next to the public bathroom and when entering/leaving the room the smell of the sewer system would be quite strong. Also, when using the A/C the same smell would permeate the room. However, the staff were quite friendly and we'd return if ever there again. Ciao!

I travelled alone, so had a single room, which was tiny, but I did expect that in Venice. However, it had it's own little terrace overlooking the canal, which was lovely. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. The hotel was quiet, although only five minutes from St Mark's Square. Free internet access was important to me, as I needed to be in contact over some business. There is a lounge upstairs adjacent to the breakfast area, but no space in the tiny lobby downstairs to sit or bring guests. This didn't bother me, as I was only there for a few days, and spent most of my time out of the hotel. I do think the directions could be more specific. I was lugging a heavy suitcase and had to ask directions before I managed to find it. The breakfast is basic, but fine. The whole hotel is tiny, but well-decorated and run. Friendly staff. I would stay there again.

to get around venice note a point of interest, eg rialto bridge then follow the (mainly)yellow signs to the bridge. its much simpler than trying to locate streets on maps as they are too numerous and small. to return to locanda canal simply follow yellow signs to san marco.

On arrival we were told being put up in their other hotel which is 10 mins walk away - a nuisance if dragging/lifting luggage up and down stairs - no assistance given with this. the comments relate this hotel. this was not staffed except during breakfast/cleaning and only 5 rooms with hall area for breakfast. The room was large by italian standards, clean quiet, comfortable and the location good next to San Giovanni e Paolo and 5 mins from Rialto

We were lost for a while as we tried to locate the property. We generally liked the room. It was not that spacious, but this was expected, having been to Europe before and seen the room sizes. The shower, however, can barely fit one person! The staff was very helpful including Alex and the owner, Claudio! We would definitely stay here again.

Hotel location is very close to San Marco, but at the arraival time, bit hard to find it. On the other hand, quiet in the night and easy to access to the main public area of the town. People in the hotel are very warm, and help anything if I asked any questions or requests. Every time they think for the secure of the entrance of hotel, it feels very safe to stay. It is nice idea for you to stay this hotel when you are at Venice.

The only problem we had was finding the hotel. The reason for this was that the street plan in our Venice guidebook spelt the street name differently to on the hotel details. In our map the street is spelt Calle d Rimedio, instead of Fondamenta del Remedio as written on the hotel details. Hopefully this information will help others find the hotel easily. Apart from this we were very happy with our choice of hotel.

When I arrived at the hotel, the person at the desk told me my single room was not available, but they had a room for me at their sister hotel. Since I had read about this common occurance on other Venere rated hotels, I wasn't totally surprised to hear this. The person at the desk walked me to the other hotel, which was smaller and not quite as nice as this one. However, the room was extremely quiet, clean and I was satisfied with the place overall.

Overall, we were pleased with our short stay here. Nice sitting area with internet access. Breakfast is just basic, but okay. Room size and ambiance excellent for the pricing. In a pretty setting. Neighborhood is a little farther from the vaporetto than we expected. If you're walking with heavy luggage from the vaporetto it can be a little hard. Location is good for getting to main places in Venice.

This hotel is a good choice if all you want is a room in Venice. There is no lobby to speak of and the breakfast was so so at best. Our room was nice but the bath room was extremely small. The shower was so small we couldn't bend down to wash our feet! The location is great but hard to find. Once you get aclimated to Venice it's OK. The hotel bosts a canal view. It's a small canal that we discovered was used to unload supplies in the morning. At 7:00 am in the morning we were awoken by the sound of beer kegs being unloaded from the boat. Overall it's an integral part of Venice, if you want to be in the middle of things, this is a good place to be. The desk clerk was very pushy about a certain restuarant he wanted us to use as well as a boat trip to an island to buy Venician glass. It made us feel like he was benefiting from it.
