Central Venice hotel

Posted Aug 10, 2014
Location: Very centrally located. We walked to San Marco and the Doge's Palace, the Rialto Bridge, and San Polo.
We stayed 3 nights in this small older hotel before taking a Mediterranean cruise. The room was large enough for our family of four with a nice refurbished bathroom. As it was extremely humid in Venice, the air conditioning was very welcome at the end of the day. The staff were helpful and friendly. The first night, though, the desk clerk seemed unsure of the best way to San Marco. Breakfast was cereal and bread with juice, coffee and tea. There is a small breakfast area on the 2nd floor. If you book, you should know that the hotel is only reachable by water taxi from the airport. You will have to walkabout a block from the nearest landing to he hotel. Also, there is a flight of steep stairs in the hotel to the 2nd floor where the rooms are. There is a chair lift.

nice hotel in Venice

Posted May 2, 2014
Pros: hotel in semi-residential area, convenient location, had a window overlooking side canal, quiet
Cons: bathroom too small, but that can't be improved. breakfast could add fruit and yogurt.
nice hotel for the price paid. friendly staff. I was looking for a hotel room which would allow my husband, 2 teenage daughters and I to stay in the same room. I was also looking for a simple hotel but with Venetian touches, away from tourist traffic and close to the piazza san marco, so this was a great choice for us.

great location

Posted Mar 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
A great hotel for couples - great location, clean and friendly staff. We were a family of 4 with teenagers. Although upon arrival we were given a larger room, it was still pretty small for the 4 of us - it would have been perfect for just my husband and I.

We got moved to another hotel

Posted Oct 7, 2013
Pros: Quiet hotel, clean, and great location.
Cons: Hard bed, breakfast not very nice, no tea/coffee making facilities in room (or room service), no staff on site.
Location: Beautiful - we preferred Casa Pisani Canal location to Locanda Canal where we booked.
On arriving at Locanda Canal, which was opposite a pretty canal a few mins walk from St Mark's Square, we were told that we had been moved to a sister hotel, Casa Pisani Canal, a few minutes walk away. The receptionist then practically sprinted through the streets to show us to the other hotel, with us struggling to keep up with heavy cases, and frequently asking him to slow down or wait so we didn't lose him! Not the best welcome. The Casa Pisani Canal was in a quieter area, which I think I preferred, but it was strange staying in a hotel with no staff on site, just a woman who arrived in the morning to serve breakfast and check out guests. However great location. It would be useful to know in advance which of the two 'sister' hotels you will be staying in, as Casa Pisani Canal is only a few mins walk from Fondamente Nove bus stop in the north of Venice, so you save lots of time on the waterbus to/from the airport if you use this stop instead of San Marco.

Small hotel close to San Marco

Posted Sep 27, 2013
Pros: The position was ideal. I would rather stay in a modest hotel in walking distance of the sights than in a grand hotel far away.
Location: A quiet backwater but with lots of restaurants nearby, and close to San Marco, the Doge's palace and the waterfront.
The hotel was on the Rimedio canal a few minutes walk from San Marco piazza. It was quiet, clean with a small breakfast room and helpful staff. It was good value for money.

charming and well located

Posted Aug 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very helpful staff, charming, old fashioned room with modern and well equiped washroom. Washroom is a bit small (this is a Venice after all), but has everything you'd need. Charming windows overlooking a little canal, street below is quiet despite being just steps away from the Doge's palace, I had Junior suite that accomodated comfortably two adults and two teenagers.

Disappointing , but moved us to sister hotel..

Posted Aug 13, 2013
Hotel locanda, was disappointing .. small room .. cleanliness was not great .. saving grace was they moved us to their sister hotel.. not a big enough room for a family. sister hotel Casa Pisani was much nicer.. , internet connections were good .. improved once the move was made..

room with no view

Posted Jun 23, 2013
Great location - 5 minutes from San Marco but did get lost a few times. Cafes and restaurants near by. Disappointed that I didn't have a view - window onto back of buildings/pipes. Was told room 101 only available. Noisy at night as top of stairs from reception so could hear other guests and reception staff. Breakfast adequate for me. Hotel charged 2 euros for bottle of water in mini bar - basically empty fridge - bit steep considering no drinks/tea/coffee facilities at hotel.
