Great location , great staff at reception who speak English . Our room looked into the alley way ,which is the authentic Venetian image. This hotel was very clean and its fantastic to sit on the balcony of the dining room with a beer overlooking the Rialto bridge watching the world go by in the evening . Very clean and... More

The hotel is located 200m from the famous Rialto Bridge. It's the perfect spot to discover Venezia as it is in the absolut centre. The vaporetto landing is next to it as well as many restaurants and trattorias. From the balcony of our room we had a great view onto Gran Canal and Rialto Bridge. Especially romantic in the evening... More

We were in Venice and as expected we got bad service from the hotel. The receptionist was rude and impolite. Hallway was tiny and the hotel didnt feel like the bomb we paid for it. Location was excellent - it was right near the Rialto Bridge. That was the only brownie point. When I goto Venice again, which I definitely... More

Actually everything is perfect, the best location, value of money, friendly staff (the Italians only), style of the Venetian furniture is awesome, nesrby water-bus stations (Rialto Mercato or St. Silvester), best choice is the rooms with a view on the Grand Canal, other good thing is the availability of an Elevator.

Located immediately opposite Rialto waterbus stop and where a side canal enters the grand canal, its where the tenors on gondolas stand to serenade tourists onto the grand canal. Incredible location so long as you are happy with 24 hour activity immediately outside. Once the gondolas and water taxis cease around midnight and the water busses at 1am the refuge... More

The staff was cordial, the location great. However, the management appears to pinch pennies wherever they can. A previous reviewer described it well -- shabby. Don't even bother trying to eat the breakfast. This place begs for a makeover by the Kimpton hotel management group.

The Locanda Ovidius is in a great location. It's right next to the Rialto Bridge which is central to the whole of Venice. Everything is within walking distance. So top marks there. Also, given the cost of other hotels in Venice, this is relatively cheap (but still expensive by any other standards). However, there are basic things expected in a... More

Stunning view of the Grand Canal. Clean room . Nice people in reception. That's about it. All round, shabby. Not 'not too shabby' just shabby. I'd have traded the view for a tad less tat. And something else, it ain't cheap. Honestly, I've seen far superior Travel Lodges.

We have just returned from a three night stay at the Locanda. This hotel is in a fantastic location with views overlooking the Grand Canal. For a short break you could not be in a better location. It is next to the Rialto Bridge and opposite the Water Bus Stations. The Continental Breakfast was much better than we expected with... More

I am afraid I agree with many negative reviews here. Our room 201 had a great view of the Rialto Bridge and the Hotel location was fine. The room was clean and the towels fresh. That's where it ended. The hotel is frankly grubby and poorly maintained. We were not after modern polished marble but would have liked clean carpets,... More
