You can´t see on the web page that "La Locandiera" is the guesthouse from another hotel about 100 m round the corner. You have to walk over for all services and for breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff.

We had a lovley holiday in venice. The Hotel is really near to the center and at the same time in a quiet place. Our room was one of the rooms shown on the homepage (plenty of space, nice bathroom and very clean). Breakfast was served in the Hotel Casa Verado which was just round the corner. There you can sit outside on a little veranda... a nice place to start the day. We will come back.

1st time in Venice & Italy. Nice place on quiet square, close to St Marks, location was very good. Service staff were friendly & helpful. Free WiFi would have been nice (only place of 6 that we stayed in Italy that didn't have free wifi), check in at different hotel a little convoluted but worked out ok. AC worked, a big plus. Has an elevator so easy to move luggage.

This was my first visit to Venice, so I tried to find an affordable(book via Venere.com to get a discount) accommodation in the heart of Venice - easily accessible, quiet, but just a short distance from the main sites. La Locandiera's services far exceeded my expectations. Newly refurbished, normal sized rooms (Venitian furniture) - spacious and comfortable, very nice bathroom, and a full varied breakfast that ensured that we could start out each day on a full stomach. Safe, hair drier, minibar, TV (Italian) are provided. The inn has an elevator (very rare in Venice). La Locandiera is approx. 100 m from Hotel Casa Verardo, the hotel to which it belongs and where breakfast is served. To reach the hotel: Turn left when you get off the vaporetto at San Zaccaria,cross the bridge, and turn right into Calle de le Rasse. When you reach the end of the street, turn left and then turn right on the corner at the Pharmacy. Go along G.D.Chiesa. Hotel Casa Verardo is just across the small bridge at the end of G.D. Chiesa. For La Locandiera turn left before the bridge to H.C. Verardo. It was really quiet, yet just 3 minutes' walk from St Mark's square and 3 minutes from the vaporetto stop. Rialto was approx. 8-10 minutes on foot. Very nice and helpful staff! To avoid the long lines at the Doge's Palace find the small travel agency (advertising currency exchange) near to San Zaccaria (walk in the direction of the Museo Storico Navale) where you can buy entrance tickets to the Palace and you can go in right away. For St. Mark's Cathedral buy a ticket (1 EUR/person) on the internet to get in without having to wait (you'll find internet point with printing option along C. de la Rasse). (Leave your back-pack and large bags at the hotel as otherwise you will have to leave it in a special cloakroom off St. Mark's square.) A vaporetto pass (1,2, or 3-day) is needed only when you visit Cimitero / Murano / Burano or wish to go along the Gran Canal. (Best to plan all these for

We chose this hotel based on customer reviews and it lived up to its reputation. It was a bit hard to find as we walked right by it twice, but it may have been due to a very long flight and train ride from Rome! The front desk staff went out of their way to accomodate us. The converter/adaptor we purchased before we left the States was faulty and they let us use one of theirs for the entire stay. This is just one example of the great customer service they exemplified! We liked that the hotel was off the busy waterfront and St. Mark's Square. It was quiet, roomy and the perfect location to get to things! Great restaurants are within a two minute walk from the front door of the hotel. When we return to Venice we will definitely stay at this hotel again!

La Locandiera is a lovely, quiet respite in Venice, located just 5-7 minutes walk from St. Mark's Square, in an out-of-the-way, tiny, piazza. The staff was friendly, extremely helpful, and considerate. We received from one of them the absolute BEST tip for seeing St. Mark's Basilica, which was to go to the website for the church and reserve a time to visit (at just 1 Euro per person for the reservation). Doing this (which we did the day before) saved us at least an hour or so of waiting in line to visit the Basilica. Another fine thing about the hotel was the breakfast (included in the price), which consisted of hard-boiled eggs, cheese, cornetti (croissants), rolls, toast, fresh and canned fruit, chocolate tortes, juices, cereals, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate--ample and delicious. Since eating out in Venice can be horribly expensive, starting the day with a good meal was invaluable. La Locandiera is also staffed 24 hours a day, so there is always someone on call to talk to, although not all of the staff speaks English with facility. They, however, will arrange trips for you and a free visit to the Murano glass factory is included in the cost of the room. Another note is that air conditioning is provided in each room (which isn't always the case in Italian hotels), and an absolute necessity in Venice during the summer. We would definitely return here on another visit to Venice, and recommend it to all travelers happily.

Since there is no shower curtain the whole bath room is flooded once you take a shower. The hotel gets very noisy in the morning and due to poor sound isolation impossible to sleep after 7.30am. Good location though and clean & spacious rooms.

we stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon - it was large for a european/venetian hotel room and the bed was comfortable. we had to switch rooms after one night because the heat was broken in our room for the first night and it was about 40 degrees F outside. the hotel staff were helpful in switching our rooms (but it would have been nice for them to offer us something in return for staying in the frozen room). GREAT location - close to St. Mark's but not so close that it's noisy. Overall, we recommend a stay here.

Everything was great! The rooms were clean, quiet, comfortable and spacious, the staff helpful and friendly. It was in a nice quiet area. Breakfast was good. The information provided by the hotel about how to get there was very easy to follow. Great location near the Piazza San Marco, very close to everything. My brother's family also travelled with us, they had a quad room and were very happy with it. Some tables and chairs outside would be nice to sit and have a glass of wine at the end of the day. I had previously stayed in accommodation booked through a travel agent and it was nowhere near as good as this. I would definately recommend it to anyone.

We used this hotel as base for several days walking around Venice. Located in the backstreets a little way from Piazza San Marco, it was easy enough to find with the directions provided. It's a bit of a walk if you have a lot of luggage, but we had no problems getting there from the nearest waterbus stop. Nice comfortable rooms,and friendly staff made for an enjoyable stay. Not cheap for the standard, but you are paying for the location as well.

In general Venice is a very expensive city, so La Locandiera hotel´s prices seems high for the type of room. On the other hand there are not help to move your luggage from the Vaporeto station to the hotel (about 200 m away), so you need to be your own freighter and it is very tiresome. However, this little hotel, hidden in the labyrint of narrow streets is quite charming and romantic. An old house turned into hotel brings a very calid atmosphere and you are only two blocks away from the San Marcos square and from the Grand canal, so it retrieves the price

We have never been so well taken care of. My daughter and I were traveling after a very stressful year. The management was delightful and we felt like part of the family. It was wonderful not to have to worry about anything. The room was spacious and lovely. We kept our windows open to take in the wonderful breezes. For breakfast we had yogurt, 3 types of breads, butter, cheese and jam, cereal and hot or cold milk, coffee, orange juice, grapfruit juice, bottled water and peaches. We never went hungry. I would go back today but alas I have to live in the real world for awhile.

Un hôtel idéalement situé, pour visiter la ville.Venue pour le preview professionnel de la Biennale d'art contemporain, les prix des chambres étaient très élévés comme dans tous les hôtels mais je recommande cet hôtel aux chambres calmes, très propres et grandes ( pour Venise). Le personnel est attentionné.Un bémol: le petit déjeuner est vraiment trop frugal ( comparé aux autres hôtels de même catégorie).Ceci a été signalé à maintes reprises il est étonnant que les propriétaires ne réagissent pas.

Hôtel très bien situé, à 300m de la place Saint Marc. Chambre très propre et refaite entièrement, y compris la salle de bain, très récemment. Chambre et salle de bain grandes pour Venise ou les chambres d'hôtel sont généralement minuscules. L'hôtel est très calme, situé, d'un coté sur un tout petit canal et de l'autre sur une petite place. Il s'agit d'une "Locanda", signifiant, en italien, une petite structure familiale. L'hôtel ne comprend que 9 chambres. Seul petit point négatif: le petit déjeuner du matin n'est que "continental" et les deux viennoiseries proposées à chaque personne sont manifestement décongelées. Les conseils du personnel sur les restaurants aux alentours sont excellents. Le prix est relativement élevé, dans l'absolu, mais raisonnable pour Venise ou l'hébergement est excessivement cher, le plus souvent pour de toutes petites chambres en piteux état. Excellent rapport qualité/prix.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my two grown-up daughters. Arrived at 22.00 hours and found it easily ; within 20 minutes of leaving Vaporetta we had checked in and were in local bar having a glass of wine! We had a triple room (24, overlooking small square) which was perfect- spacious and clean with comfortable beds,a lovely warm bathroom with plenty of soft white towels! Nice breakfast and perfect (peaceful)location, 5 minutes from Vaporetta station on Grand Canal, 5 minutes from St Marks Square with plenty of places to eat near by (though quite pricey). We took a boat to the Cannaregio area where prices were much more reasonable. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Firstly must mention the superb staff - they emailed me to confirm the booking and sent a detailed map which I unfortunately printed out in stamp size, thankfully the young girl at reception gave me excellent directions over the phone, her English was impressive. Staff were always superb and friendly, room was a bit warm at night and couldn't leave window open due to mosquitoes which were buzzing in my ear the first night, aircon only seemed to heat, no cooling option, breakfast was basic but fine, overall a great stay due to very welcoming and helpful staff (girl at reception recommended 2 great non-touristy restaurants nearby) the location is amazing, 2 mins to St. Mark's but off the tourist trail and in a quiet little square, 3 mins to San Zaccaria vaporetto stop where the Alilaguna boat to the airport also stops. Booked a double room which was big by Venetian standards, safe and minibar, large-ish bathroom, TINY TV but not important, comfortable large bed, room always thoroughly cleaned. Lift available which is handy for luggage. Summary: Great location and staff, decent price, some minor annoyances but if you want to stay near St. Mark's without paying a fortune this place would be hard to beat!

The directions to the hotel from Venere were unhelpful and the ones directly from the hotel were actually wrong. Having been to Venice before, we know it is easy to get confused but we lost for an hour. It was almost midnight and we were exhausted/exasperated. Once found, the clerk at the desk was clueless, couldn't find the reservation. When we finally got into our room it was noisy from a neighboring rooms tv and inconsiderate loud talking till very late. The room itself was large but only very basic with no charm. We actually checked out the next day and went to another property.

The hotel staff provided directions and taxi information by e-mail prior to our arrival - they were extremely helpful. The hotel is just a short 5-10 min walk from the vaporetta. My only complaint is the housekeeper was loud in the stairwells, which echoed through the whole building, and a neighboring apartment was fairly loud for awhile one day. However, it did not interfere with our sleep, as the noise was gone by nightfall. There was a very small elevator, so stairs aren't a problem. Breakfast was sufficient, but they ask €1-2 for cappucino or espresso in the morning. They provide milk, juice, tea, croissants, prepackaged toast and jam, usually a canned fruit and sometimes another pastry, such as a tart, for the guests to share. There is a computer to use the internet for €2/20 min. The staff was helpful. Piazza San Marco was a 5-10 minute walk - just a few short blocks. A PERFECT place to stay. The hotel will also set up a free speedboat ride to Murano to tour a glass factory - take note: While the trip to the island is free, it's not an "official" tour. It's a ploy to get you into the glass showroom to buy expensive glass. They tour guide we had was very friendly, but after 10 minutes of watching an artist work, he shuffled us into the showroom where he claimed he could give us a great deal on anything we wanted. He was somewhat persistant, but we didn't purchase anything. He was visibly disappointed. We were also not provided a taxi back - we had to get one on our own. Still not a bad deal, but if you have a hard time with situations like this, take your own taxi out and back. All of the factories are open for tours during business hours. It's a fantastic place to visit. The hotel will also help with a Gondola ride, but no discounts. The only way to enjoy the gondola without paying €75-100(singing is another €100 or so), is to head up towards Rialto and find the gondoleers in training - they'll take you straight across the canal for about €0.50.

I really liked the location of the hotel in that it was close to St. Marks but not right by it. That gave us an opportunity to eat at local places not overrun by other tourists. We like to experience things like the locals whenever we can. The only thing that was odd is that there is no sign that sticks out into sidewalk so that you can see the entrance from the intersection. It is easy to get to from the Vapporetto stop, just make sure to get off on the correct one.

Excellent location at 3 minutes walk of San Marco square. Although in the center of touristic Venice, very quiet surroundings. As not al rooms seem the same, we had (even for Venician standards) a very spacious one. Being for the sixt time in Venice and knowing the city by now well, the location/price combination and quality of the rooms is the main selling point of this hotel. Two tips: 1) Book this hotel through venere.com and not directly at the hotel, it saved us in our case about 35 euro/night. 2) For people who love Italian coffee skip the brown water at breakfast and get your espresso lungo at one of the several bars nearby (1/2 minute walk).

Great position close to St Mark's Square but on a quiet back street. Excellent Hotel for a short stay, only issue was the hand held shower. If you stay take the time to wander on the back streets to the left of the front door as you come out, turn down the passage and enjoy the real Venice.

We had a wonderful stay at La Locandiera. The staff was very welcoming and helpful and made our stay there a pleasant one. The room was clean and quaint and the minibar was a nice bonus. Overall our experience was very pleasing and would recommend staying there to anyone passing through or having their holiday in Venice. The proximity to St. Marco square is a real advantage

Excellent choice. Spotlessly clean, spacious room, comfortable bed, helpful staff. Perfectly located between Rialto and St Mark's square, but hidden on a quiet little square, off the main 'highway'. I'll certainly go there again.

This hotel was a wonderful place to stay .the bathroom was beautiful and clean, the bed really comfy and the view over the water was so Venice it was great. The Staff were really friendly and helpful and very good English, open 24 hrs was great as they were no need to rush back from the great nights out and it was just a short walk to the main square. It was such a great place we are hopefully planning a trip again next year and would definatley stay at La Locandiera again.

The poor reception at our arrival all be it late (around 10.30, we got a bit lost) was a bit dissapointing. We got lost despite the good map mainly because the hotel had no lights or signage on at all indicating its location. This is particularly neccesary as Venice streets are very tricky. The morning receptionist at check out, kept us waiting for 20 minutes whilst helping clients at her desk calling various places checking on rather obviously trivial matters like hours of operation etc. She was being put on hold sometimes for 4/5 minutes whilst we stood there. Rather than apologise for the loong wait she chose to make us feel like we were disturbing her. It might be helpful for the hotel to have more than one employee helping at checkout times. These are minor issues and not complaints against any individual and are only being stated to help the hotel improve its otherwise excellent location and premises..

We had a nice large room on the 3rd floor - a triple that really felt like a triple, rather than a double with an extra bed stuffed in. The air conditioning was a little substandard, which was too bad because it was extremely hot and humid when we visited. The staff were very helpful in many ways and the beds and room were quite comfortable except for the heat. The location was good - close to the major sights like San Marco but on a quiet campo. Be aware that the directions on the venere site are completely wrong for how to reach the hotel. Be sure to take along a printout of the map sent by the hotel when you book. We had trouble finding it and in fact at one point we were standing right in front of it and didn't realize it because there is no sign, just the words above the doorbell of the main door. The breakfast was the worst we had on the trip and they charged 2 euros for an espresso or capuccino, which, given the cost of the rooms, seemed petty. They also charged a small fortune for internet access (5 euros an hour). Venice is really a mob scene and if we were to return we would probably stay in the Dorsoduro or on the Lido to get further away from the crowds.

I was not very impressed with La Locandiera. After reading the reviews and getting a personal confirmation email from the hotel, I was expecting our stay at this hotel to be the best among the four hotels we stayed at in Italy. The real picture was different. I'm not saying it's not a decent hotel, clean and friendly staff, but the reviews and the hotel website make you think that you're staying at a palace, but it's much more humble and it's over-rated. The room was much smaller and less elaborate than the impression the pictures gave; the breakfast was the poorest we had in Italian hotels; the room quite small with hardly any space for luggage and clothes for a group of three. In all fairness though, the bathroom was excellent, the staff friendly and helpful and professional, they spoke pretty good English. However, I will not stay there again, not just because of what I described above, but because after visitng Venice for the first time, I'm somewhat convinced that it's more sensible to stay a little further away from the touristic and historical center (maybe near the Santa Lucia train station) and use the vaporetto (the boat transportation) to get to the historical center. Also, I think next time I visit Venice, as freezing as it gets I might go there in the winter because the hords of summer tourists really take away a lot from the city's charm!

I would definitely recommend this hotel to couples and people who like to feel very comfortable while traveling. we even over slept and missed breakfast it was that comfortable. but, i do wear ear plugs to bed to avoid waking up from foreign noises.

We found the hotel to be close to the write-ups on it. Pros: close to San Marco, close to the water taxi, easy to find, friendly staff - they speak excellent english, very helpful, decent breakfast, clean rooms. Cons: Staying around San Marco was a mistake for us since it was too touristy and crowded. We ended up continuing to leave the are everyday for more quiet surroundings (San Toma, Murano (certain areas), etc. We also found the area is full of very pricey restaurants, etc. - you really need to go explore away from the area to find better prices (and better quality, as we discovered). Its an interesting area to explore but not live in.

This hotel is a little gem! Near enough to the noise and attractions, but turn the corner into the little square and it's quiet and peaceful. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and the bed is comfortable compared to some we have slept on! The breakfast is more than you would usually find in a Venice hotel at that price band. (on a previous visit to another hotel in Venice, the breakfast was very meagre) On this visit, we 'got away' from the usual tourist spots and walked/water bus to find 'hidden' Venice. The hotel has books laid out for you to look at. All in all a very enjoyable five days.

The room was lovely. Very spacious and attractive as well as exceptionally clean. The only problem was that although it was on the third floor, if the windows were open we could hear the loud conversations of the passers-by on the streets below. The staff was very helpful and informative. They gave us valuable information about how to use the public transportation (by boat) that took us to the airport at a reasonable cost. They also helped arrange for two concerts and an opera.

My husband and 2 daughters (18 & 21) stayed here for 2 nights in the middle of March 2008. The hotel is located very close to the canal and St Mark's Square. It is very clean-as a matter of fact my 18 year old daughter even commented on how clean it was. The staff were very friendly and most of them spoke English.Our room was on the first floor and it was very quiet.We met an older Venetian man on the waterbus who filled us with info about all of the buildings as we passed them and escorted us right to the hotel's door! We paid 200 euro per night and would highly recommend it.

La Locandiera is in a perfect location, right next to St Marks Sq, although away from the hustle and bustle in a quiet square. There are lots of restaurants and bars close by. We didn't have any problem finding the hotel, following directions provided by the hotel. We visited with our 2 year old boy, and found the hotel ideal (although navigating through Venice with a buggy was challenging!). Breakfast was better than expected with freshly baked croissants/bread every morning, boiled eggs, cereals, cheese, jams, tinned fruit, coffee, tea and juice. We would definitely return to this hotel if we stayed in Venice again.

The hotel is an excellent deal for venice. The only thing to "complain" about is the quietness of the rooms, because the doors of the single rooms aren' isolated very well. But as the hotel is very small, the noise is limited, esp. if you're the one who is coming back late. ;-) The breakfast is better than in most italian hotels. That's why you have unfortunately no reason to take your breakfast in an Italian bar like most Italian. The location of the hotel is great, only five minutes away from piazza San Marco, but a not in the main tourist area. We can recommend the hotel and next time we are going to Venice we certainly choose this hotel again.

I can recommend this hotel and surely would come back if again in Venice. Very clean, nice bathroom, kind service, 24 hours reception service, excellent location. Do not go to Antica Secrestia Restaurant as it is too expensive and very touristic oriented (if understood what I mean), but go to the Aciugheta, which is serving excellent food accompanied with real kindness. Both are cca. 50 meters from the Hotel.
