What you expect for this hotel category in Venice. Small rooms and bathrooms in line with the rest, clean and comfortable. The location of this hotel makes it a perfect choice for a short vacation in this wonderful city. Competent and courteous enough staff, plain breakfast in a crowded room next to the reception. No balcony in sight that was... More

My husband and I spent two nights in Venice before we embarked on a cruise. We were looking for a hotel that was easy to get to since we would have a lot of luggage, had a canal view, and was reasonably priced. The Antica Locanda al Gambero had it all. They also served a great breakfast that included fresh... More

We stayed here two nights after a cruise. The hotel was really easy to find from the San Marco Vaporetto, just a 5 minute walk and two canal bridges. They had e-mailed us a map before we left. This was good as you don't want to be lost on the narrow crowded streets dragging your luggage around, without luggage it's... More

We loved this hotel, we stayed for 3 nights. Excellent location! Close to everything! The staff was phenomenal! The rooms are small, but you are in Europe so that's to be expected. Breakfast was great, and included. There is an amazing roof top terrace to see the city!. Get a room with a canal view!!! You will be able to... More

The location was exceptional since it was close to Rialto Bridge and San Marco. The front desk staff was excellent and helpful. The breakfast was very nice with good choices to get your day started. It was raining quite a bit the day we checked out and fortunately they had a small sitting room with two computers so we could... More

Location is very convenient, close to everything and particularly to vaporetto, very convenient for transport to/fro airport. Our quad room was very pleasant and clean, helpful and pleasant staff. Be aware that there is no lift so if your room is on a high floor dragging your luggage upstairs may be complicated. We stayed for one 1 night, left our... More

The staff were wonderful, especially the luggage handlers. Mattress was a little lumpy but I still slept well. Full breakfast buffet was delicious and plentiful. Closer to Rialto vaporetto stop than San Marco - less than 5 minutes walk and no bridge to cross - important when transporting suitcases. The room was great and canal view was as advertised. Bistrot... More

Just a few blocks north of St. Mark's square, and a few blocks south of the Rialto. The staff was very solicitous and helpful. But be warned: we were on the 4th floor (5th floor in the US) and that is a lot of steps! Overall, we were very pleased.

A short walk from St. Mark's Square, this boutique hotel allows you to imagine you are living in the renaissance time but with today's comforts. Clean and well kept. Friendly and excellent service. I would without a doubt use this hotel again on my next trip to Venice.
