We booked based on reviews...

Pros: Not much.
Cons: See above, not interested in spending any more time writing that all up.
Location: The hotel is in a very quiet neighbourhood about 25 minutes from St Mark's square. Not much to do nearby.
We figured 4/5 stars seemed quite a good average for a 3 star hotel in Venice. When we arrived though, we checked in and were brought to the top floor of an adjacent building. The room was located all the way at the very end of the hallway, right under the building's roof. Due to the shape of the roof, the ceilings were very low and I wasn't able to properly stand up in any part of the bathroom (I'm 1.8m tall). Due to the location of the room, our iPhone and Android phones as well as the Mac laptop barely connected to wifi. In fact, we ended up staying in the lobby whenever we needed internet access. The room itself felt dirty. It felt like the room didn't get cleaned properly after the previous guests left. On the first evening about half way through taking a shower, the water temperature dropped and all I got was cold water. We reported that to the owner and he said he was aware of it and that a technician would fix it the next day. Due to the fact that we didn't have internet access, stayed in a small, dirty room with cold water only we asked to get a refund or discount on our stay. We were promised a discount of roughly 1 night, but when we asked to get that paid back, the owner asked for our bank details to transfer the money. We agreed to discuss that during checkout. We checked out at 7am during the week, but the lobby door was closed. We called the owner and he said we could put the key in front of the door. We never got a refund. Avodi this place.

Perfect location to get in, out & around Venice!

Posted Feb 22, 2017 on Hotels
If you are looking for the perfect spot to get in, out, and around Venezia quickly without sacrificing sleep or "atmosphere" quality, Locanda Gaffaro is it! The location of the hotel is impeccable: although only a 10-minute walk south from the train station or the parking garage, the hotel is yet in the center of a residential neighborhood and is quiet at all times. Further 10 minute south is the S Toma vaporetto station which you can easily reach Piazza S Marco. Frari and S Rocco, along with many cheap eats particularly in the local favorite Campo S Magherita, are even closer to the hotel. In other words, you are essentially in the center of the authentic Venice with easy access to other parts of the city thanks to its proximity to many vaporetto stops! While the hotel room itself is not glamorous, its homely setting makes it a perfect place to rest from exploring the beautiful Venezia because of the quiet environment. The included breakfast is a simple yet high-quality selection of choices of pastries and cold cuts to give you a jump start for a new day of exploration. If you are a family or a group, you even get your own balcony over the serene courtyard! No matter what though, a beautiful canal is literally steps away from the hotel door. Overall, I highly recommend staying in this hotel, regardless of the length of your stay! The location simply cannot get any better especially if you plan to use vaporetto.

Great little spot, highly recommended

We had a really lively stay at this hotel - the staff are very friendly and the property is located far enough from the tourists to fel less crowded but not so far that you can't walk there
