Great room, friendly staff and a good location. They even helped us with plastic bags so we could get out of the street, which was completely flooded because of the high water in Venice. The owner also woke up earlier so we could leave at 6am to catch our plane. I seriously recommend this lovely little hotel.

Definitely top accomodation we have stayed during our short journeys to European cities. This weekend escape was the first time in Venice for us and especially Locanda caused us to fall in love with the city. Owners Ivan and Max were very friendly, the apartment with the canal view balcony was really something (spacious, ancient but very clean). Rooms are made to make you feel like in 16th century but with all todays comfort (AC,TV,bar). Location is excellent-quiet, but just a few steps from the door you feel the Venice atmosphere. We are definitely coming back here.

Up a narrow Calle (alley)off the Strada Nova at the Ca' De Oro vaporetto stop, this is an easy-to-find hotel in a secluded QUIET location in the center of the city. The reception was warm and welcoming. The young brothers who own the facility can't do enough to help you be comfortable and help you enjoy your stay. The rooms are well decorated with typical Ventian furnashings and wal coverings. It seems like you are staying in a Ventian home. Breakfast is a simple affair with room service at no charge -typical European fare - crossiants, rolls, yogurt, juices and good coffee. The neighborhood has many choices for meals and shopping. Check out the Supermarket two blocks to the west for a full selection of convienence foods. Did we mention that it was very Quiet?

We had a very nice stay. Our room was comfortable, clean and cool – even in the midst of 90-degree (F) temperatures outside. The location was very good for us as well, near enough to walk to sites we wanted to visit, and very close to the Fondamenta Nove stop from which one can board vaporetto boats to other islands (including Murano and Lido) and the Alilaguna boat to and from the airport. The standard hotel breakfast is served in the room (rather than in a common breakfast room) and arrived very promptly each morning at the requested time. The staff was very friendly and accommodating throughout the stay.

If you are looking for a quieter location in Venice this is a good choice. Very simple but very clean and very Venice! Located away from the more expensive restaurants etc but within walking distance if that is what you are looking for. B'fast is served in your room (typical continental - rolls and butter/jam/spreading cheese)room spotless, bathroom spotless staff so helpful. Not cheap but for Venice good value. Lots of good value local restaurants close to the B&B. Personally I prefer this side of Venice rather then over the other side of the bridge but its close enough to get to and from the main 'touristy' areas.

A fantastic stay. We were made to feel very welcome and given lots of really helpful advice about places to eat with good food used by the locals. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is central but quiet being down one of the side roads between the canals. Our only hesitation in recommending this hotel wholeheartedly is that it may mean that there won't be space for us when we want to use it again!!

Ivan and Max gives clear direction. We arrived at 9:30 PM by bus and water bus. We walked to Locanda Cale Vele within a minute. It was easy than I thought. The path was a wide alley with bright light just off the main street. There were lot of people on the main street. We feel safe all the time. The room was big even for our family of 5. We enjoy our stay and will come back. Location was great, close to everything. Staff were nice and speak good English.

We chose to book this hotel simply from the price offered and the recommendations of others. We were not dissapointed. Once past the initial exterior approach the hotel met all our expectaions and requirements. Quite, very clean, very well serviced and located centrally enough to allow easy walking access to most of the major attractions. The hosts Ivan and Max provided good recommendations for dining and sight seeing highlighting their command of the english language. The bathrooms were smallish but totally functional with everything in good working order, breakfast whilst continental still adequate. A most enjoyable 4 nights accomodation enjoyed by this mature kiwi couple.

Absolutely the best value hotel in Venice! No I'm not a relative either but this was recommended and with good reason. Lovely room, ideal position close to the Grand Canal and vaporetto stop, canal view and extremely knowledgable Venetian owners who spoke fluent English. Take note of their restaurant recommendation as well, lovely food and atmosphere. Nice breakfast in the room, decent size for Venice too and the air con worked a treat ( unusual for Italy!) Don't even think about it, just book here; you'll not regret it.

The location is excellent - very accessible to the Grand Canal and the waterbuses, which was convenient, and it was only a few minutes walk to the Basilica of San Marco. We arrived at night and were a little apprehensive of the dark, narrow alley that this hotel opens on to, but once the door was open, we loved the beautiful courtyard, and the welcoming proprietor. One of our spacious rooms looked out over a canal which was very picturesque, but the other had a view of a wall. Larger travelers beware - the shower stall is tiny! Breakfast in our room was nice, and the young man at the front desk was very helpful giving us directions and offering guidebooks. Overall, it was an excellent hotel for our visit to Venice!

I'm a traveller who like the best in life and I always want the best value of my money without taking anything from the quality. This was perfect!! Not just me but all 7 of us had a great stay here and I have already recommended this hotel to all my friends and "Venice-interested-people". They even fixed (after a bit confusion with the evening staff)an alternative for my travelcompanion who are allergic to gluten (can't eat wheat, rye etc). That is really great service!!! The room was very clean and cozy and perfect location to get around venice. It took 20min to go by foot from the bus stop to the Hotel and same to S.Marco. and 10min from Rialto bridge. Like it alot and i can also recomend a resturant around the corner on Strada Nuova 4386 called Hosteria Al Vecio Bragosso. good staff, really good food and good prices. Also recommend the resturant which you can see the back windows of on the "hotel street". we didn't try it cause it was 1 hour before we could get a table, a lot of italian people in line in front of us. Have a nice stay at Locanda le Vele and = good restaurant. Enjoy beautiful Venice a perfect place to boost your lovelife and fall in love all over again!!!

Ivan and Massimiliano were terrific hosts at this B&B. Although they've only owned it a short time, they know the true meaning of service and customer satisfaction. My daughter and I shared a comfortable room on the street-side of the hotel the first night. Although you could hear people walking and talking on the street below, it was not too loud. In fact, it added to the charm. The second night we were allowed to upgrade (for a small fee) to one of their larger rooms on the canal. Oh my goodness! What a palace!!! The room was gorgeous and the location on one of the smaller canals shielded us from the noise of the Grand Canal. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would definitely stay there again. My daughter and I both highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Venice.

We stayed at Locanda Le Vele during our honeymoon - we spent a couple of days in Venice, and we would highly recommend this hotel to others. It was very easy to get to (for Venice standards) - no bridges or steps. The room itself was perfect, very nice bed, view of the canal. The only complaint was the shower - no where to put anything and shower head kept moving around. Breakfast in our room every morning was great. The 2 brothers who manage the hotel gave us good tips, and also helped us with travel plans and concert tickets. They could not have been more helpful! We will definitely be visiting again!

After reading reviews from other people who stayed there, most of them mentioned how difficult it was to find Locanda le Vele so before we left on our trip we asked for good directions from the airport to the hotel....and we're glad we did. Max and Ivan and their staff were very friendly and helpful and we were able to pay for our stay with a credit card...no problem. The hotel was located in a nice quiet part of town within easy walking distance of St. Marks Square and lots of great places to eat and shop. We were in a very nice, double room with windows overlooking a canal. Since there was no dining room in the hotel and our stay included breakfast, we were asked what time we wanted them to bring breakfast up to our room...very nice...didn't have to get dressed to leave the room. We would definitely stay there again.

Ivan and Max were very helpful,spoke English comfortably and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. After initially having a little difficulty finding the place on the first day, it's location proved ideal. It is no more than 5 minutes to a vaporetto stop and eay walking distance to San Marco(15 mins)and the Acadamia, Rialto bridges. Get a Venice Pass for vaporettos covering your length of stay. If you have a lot of baggage, better to store some at train station and come back for rest on a second trip. It is difficult to get on a vaporetto with a lot of luggage at the busy times. Water taxi to hotel is 40euros!! We brought our big bags to the train station the night before leaving when the vaporettos weren't as crowded. Good, reasonable restaurants in area are Da Bruno's and La Buona Forchetta. Price for 3 nights was $707 CAD in May

Went as a family of four. Had a hard bumpy sofabed for the adults - very uncomfortable. Breakfast as written in other reviews is not breakfast as we would expect, just croissants, packeted toast and petite rolls, with drinks of your choice. The location of hotel is fantastic, very close to vaporetto and very easy to find. Shower is tiny but I think normal for Europe. The only other negative is that we had to pay cash for accommodation which is a bit daunting taking out and carrying around lots of cash.

The room we had for four people was beautiful, however the bathroom and especially the shower was tiny (literally 2.5' x 2.5') which left no room to bend over when the doors were shut. The staff was polite and helpful and spoke enough English to help us with most of our questions. The breakfast served in the room was nice but limited in selection (pastries, toast, jams, cheese, tea and coffee mostly). It was filling but each day was the same. We liked the location since it wasn't in the heart of Venice but was within a half mile walk of all the sights and was very quiet and next to a small canal which our windows opened up to. This walking time allowed us to shop while we headed toward the sights. Venice is like one large shopping mall with stores surrounding you everywhere you go. We particularly enjoyed talking with the mask designer, Stephano, at "Papier Mache". He was gracious enough to explain the art and history of the Venice masks and how important a role they played in Venice society. This shop was only a few blocks from the Locanda Le Vele. We did have to walk up one floor with our luggage since there wasn't a lift (elevator) to our room. This wasn't a big deal for us since we packed lightly, but it could be for others.

The hotel is run by 2 cousins. It is small (six rooms available) and personal. They delivered what was promised on the website and really tried to be very accommodating. Our room was one of the smaller rooms available and it easily accommodated 2 adults and 2 adult sized teenagers. The hotel lobby is on the 2nd floor. When we arrived at the hotel, one of the two owners rushed down the steps to help us with our luggage. It was very welcoming. Breakfast (continental) was brought to our room on time as requested. The location of the hotel was on a very quiet side street. But it was very convenient to the markets, restaurants and sites.

Nice little hotel tucked away in a little alley, by a little bridge. As the bridge was closed at the end of the alley, there was little foot traffic. Very helpful staff, terrific location - close to the waterbus stop and in the vacinity of shopping streets. Because there was no common breakfast room, breakfast in bed was a nice touch. Only negative was that the canal behind the hotel was under repair (and so was the bridge), otherwise would have had a nice view too! It didnt bother us too much that there were no public areas.

Ever dream of a romantic interlude in Venice, but don't want to it to eat up all of your vacation money for the next year? Conveniently located half way between the railway station and St. Mark's Square, this little inn is just a few steps from the Ca' D'Oro vapretto stop. We have stayed at the Gritti, the Daneli, and many other places at both ends of the hotel spectrum, but the Locanda Le Vele is truly exceptional for a 3 star hotel. There are only 6 suites and all are luxuriously furnished with ornate Venetian Provincial furniture, tastefully done and exceptionally roomy - bigger than most of the top end hotels. Our room had a king size bed, a pull out sofa, a 3 chair/table sitting area, a private bath with shower, satellite TV, minibar, dial telephone, safe, air conditioning and breakfast room service. The friendly staff spoke fluent English and were very helpful. The only negatives were no lift and a small shower. However for the price, you can't beat it! We also found the prices at the restaurants near the hotel to be more reasonable than the ones close to St. Mark's Square.

PROS: Nice room with luxurious-looking Venetian decor - Murano chandelier, baby angel statues on bed headboards, very large room for European hotel, includes a table and chairs for breakfast. Free wi-fi, refrigerator, pretty clean. Owner was nice but has a tendency to make "mistakes" to increase profit. Good value for the room you get. Easy to get to, especially if you take the vaporetto to Ca d'Oro stop. Walking from train station is quite a long way and you have to climb steps to go over 7 canal bridges. Good breakfast served in the room. Quiet location in a small alley, but very close to Strada Nuova, Rialto bridge and vaporetto stops. Good location -- you can easily walk to the main tourist spots. CONS: When I e-mailed owner directly for a quote he "mistakenly" quoted high-season price and corrected it only after I pointed out that the dates in Nov should be low season. When I checked out, the total was given as 477 euros even though it should be 447 euros. It was 5:30 am and the night clerk claimed he cannot changed the total. After I insisted for 10 minutes, he called the owner. When I talked to the owner, at first he pretended not to understand what was going on and only after I insisted for correction, he finally said that I was correct. It helped that I had a copy of the original price quotes (booking sheet). Also, this hotel does NOT take credit cards. They pretend like the machine is out of order that day only, but after reading comments from others, it's obvious this hotel does NOT take CC. Be forewarned. Also, during our stay, the canal that our room looked over was under construction, so it was stagnant and the stench was pretty strong. We brought car air fresheners and jasmine incense, so we used those and it was fine. Without them, the canal stench would be bad.

We stayed in 5 hotels during our recent trip to italy. This included 2 hotels in venice. We changed to this hotel after the high season ended because the rate went down by 100 Euros from high season to off season. This was the only on of the 5 hotels we stayed at in Italy in which we were dissapointed. There were no common rooms at all. We were brought a meager breakfast to our room which we ate at the table provided in our room. Because of this table there was essentially no open floor space and the 3 of us had to take turns moving around the room. Although it wasn't a fault of the hotel they were working on a nearby canal while we were there and the smell in our room was disgusting. They had a sign up in the registration area when we arrived that credit cards were't be accepted (temporarily). 3 days later when we checked out the sign was still up. When I asked what the clerk wanted to do he held the cables together on their connection to the credit card network and made it work. This place may have been nice at one time, but I would recommend staying somewhere else.

Fantastic hotel in great location, quiet but within easy walking distance of all main attractions. The rooms really are as good as they look and breakfast was served in our room each day which was a nice touch. Hotel was clean and secure and staff were friendly and helpful. Would love to return.

We had a very pleasant stay at Locanda Le Vele. This room was a pleasant surprise compared to the hotel we stayed in last year when we visited Venice (which was more expensive!) We were a family of 3 adults and 3 children, and we managed to fit in the spacious superior suite! The furnishings are beautiful in the old Venetian style. The bathroom is large and the room was very clean.The entrance hall to the hotel is very pretty and spacious. The breakfast was more than adequate which is served in your room at your own requested time. There is a lovely balcony which overlooks a quiet canal. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The surroundings of the hotel are more in the residential area, which makes it a lot quieter, but the shops and restuarants are very nearby. The hotel is also very easy to find when you get off the water taxi (which is not an easy feat in Venice!). The only down side is the credit card facilities were not working so we had to pay cash (which we were not warned of in advance. Would definitely recommend this hotel, which is good value for its price, and that is quite hard to find in Venice.

Wonderful,lovely hotel. Easy to find, and in a great location. Best of all, we did not have to lug baggage up and down the numerous stairs around the city. It was a very short walk from the waterbus. This hotel was away from crowds, but close enough to easily walk to everything we wanted to see and do. The breakfast served in our rooms was very welcomed, and was just enough to start our day. The staff spoke english, and answered questions we had about directions. We would definitely go there again!

We have stayed in Venice several times, so knew the area, and what we were looking for. The Locanda was well located, and easy to find. We had a beautiful room overlooking the canal, and were sorry we were only staying one night on this occasion. Breakfast was sufficient for our needs, and we were able to leave our luggage until we left for the airport. Only item missing was a kettle for making drinks (or perhaps we did not find it) but there are cafes just round the corner.

While the price might have been a little bit steep (like pretty much everything in Venice), the hotel staff definitely made every effort to make our stay an enjoyable one. We spent Xmas here - this being one of the few hotels open. We were impressed with how consistent the rooms were decorated, and not at least with the space (usually at a premium on the lagoon). The hotel is within easy reach from the vaporetto (even with luggage), adjacent to one of the major walks in Venice. Rialto stands just around the corner (same as the Casino) and San Marco is within a ~15 mins walk. Very good value compared to the rest of the offer.

The overal stay is great. The hotel is like a Palace for me and my gf. The service is good either. The only thing is the owner is not so good in English, so we have difficulty to understand each other. But if you can understand Italian, that is the best hotel I have lived in Italy. I highly recommended you live in this Hotel.

This hotel is an incredible value for the money, given how expensive Venice is. The rooms are quiet, clean and beautifully decorated. And, I loved how everyone who stays here has breakfast served to them each morning in their room. The only problem some might have with the hotel are the bathrooms: the bathroom showers are very narrow stalls that some might have trouble moving around in. The location off of Strada Nuova is a good for finding less touristy restaurants. Above all, I HIGHLY recommend Osteria al Bomba, which is on a side street a couple blocks down from Le Vele.

El hotel es un descubrimiento en medio de algunas de las oscuras callejuelas de Venecia. La atención es soberbia, un buen desayuno. La decoración concuerda con las imágenes que uno conserva de Venecia. Es un poco difícil llegar porque la calle es muy pequeña, pero es una buena referencia decir que está muy cerca del McDonald's de Strada Nuova.

We just came back from our trip to France and Italy. Locanda Le Vele is the best hotel we ever stayed it. The room was really big and the decoration and ambiance was great for a Europe trip. The location of the hotel is very accessible and easy to find. It is close to all the shops as well as the vaporeto. The morning breakfast in the room was excellent. It was the typical croissant, cheeses, jellies, coffee, juice.... but, the service of bringing it in the room and eating it there makes it feel like the food is really great. The people on the counter are all very cordial and helpful. We have already told our friends and family about this place. Venice is great... and we have already agreed that the next time we go back to Venice... we will definitely be staying at Locanda Le Vele. The only thing though, you should be ready to pay in cash... because even if they said on the internet that they accept credit card... the note on the wall says the machine is broken... we were already warned by one of the people who wrote here... But, it is worth every peny.

We were told to move to a smaller room after the first night because we had been given the wrong room when we arrived.

The room was clean and spacious. The location is great. The air conditioning worked well. The hide a bed that the kids were on was warm to sleep on. It would have been better if we had two regular beds. This would not be a problem for a couple traveling. We did have one major problem with the hotel. They did not take credit cards when we were there. This caused us to take lots of money out of the bank with our ATM over several days and our bank put a fraud alert on our ATM card. Next time we go to Venice, we would stay there, but would check into the credit card policy and bring American Express Travelers checks if needed. We found a great little restaurant a few streets over in the direction of the Rialto Bridge. The food is among the best we had on our trip and the people were very friendly. It is called Osteria al Bomba, Cannaregio 4297/98 - Venezia phone 041 520175, www.osteriaalbomba.it We enjoyed Venice and our hotel and look forward to returning.

Wir hatten ein 4-Bett Zimmer gebucht, jedoch hatten wir ein Doppelzimmer mit zusätzlicher Schlafcouch erhalten. Für 4 Personen (2 Erw. + 2 Kinder) absolut zu klein. Dadurch passte auch das Preis/Leistungs Verhältnis nicht. Wir hatten in Venedig zu vergleichbaren Preisen bereits deutlich großzügigere Zimmer gehabt. Abgesehen davon war der Service, die Freundlichtkeit und die Ausstattung gut. Das Frühstück auf dem Zimmer war ebenfalls sehr angenehm.

We confirm the extrimely positive impression about this hotel and advice it to whoever would ask us where to stay in Venise. Romantic, well decorated, elegant, all this for a Locanda extrimely well situated in the center, 2 steps from the vaporetto and well situated to walk everywhere, for a very small price in the low season (January).

This was the best hotel of our entire trip to Italy (we stayed in 3 different hotels). The room was beautiful, and since it was a standard room (not one of the deluxe ones), it was smaller than the one in the picture -- but there was still plenty of room and well decorated. The staff was extremely nice and brought our breakfast to our room on time every day (you get a nice basket of rolls, croissants and toast w/assorted jellies, nutella and cheese -- and excellent coffee or tea). The hotel was less than a minute's walk from the Ca d'Oro vaporetto stop (I think I spelled that right), so lugging suitcases was not a problem. One issue: The windows don't keep out the street noise, which can get loud since it's such a narrow alley and the sound travels upwards. I think if you request one of the rooms overlooking the canal, it will be quieter. The walls were thick though, so we never heard our neighbors (unlike the other hotels we stayed in). I highly recommend this place.

The Locanda Le Vele is very easy to find,just as described on the web site, only a couple of minutes walk from Ca' d'Ora Vaporetta stop..and no stairs or brigdes to negotiate with luggage!!. We arrived at Marco Polo airport and the easiest route into Venice is to take the Bus from the airport (N0 5 runs every30 mins) for 2.50 Euros and takes 35-40 mins, or take a Taxi 30 Euros and takes 25mins, to Piazzale Roma then Vaporetta #1 to Ca d'Oro. We took a taxi and the transfer time from leaving the airport to arriving at Locanda Le Vele was 35mins. The location is excellent, tucked away in a quiet backwater, but only 5 mins walk from the Rialto Bridge, and it's a very pleasant walk past lots of Bars, reasturants and shops. However it was always nice at the end of a long day to return to the peace and tranquility of the room. with EXCELLENT air conditioning. The rooms were decorateed to a high standard, and would put many a 3* or 4* hotel to shame, very comfortable bed, mini bar,( but nothing much in it except soft drinks), table and two chairs and en suite.Continental breakfast is served in the room, as the TownHouse, does not a restaurant/Bar, but excellent coffee and just enough to eat to start the day. The owners staff the 'hotel' and all three of them were very pleasant and helpful, with advice on where to go places to eat, and spoke excellent English. We had a wonderful 3 days, however I am very wary of recommending this to others as it's the sort of place you want to keep for yourself !!. Would I stay here again ? absolutly...if fact we are comming back in November it's a little gem.
