This hotel is dreadful. My room was fairly good size but that of a travel companion was so small she could barely open her suitcase. There are no elevators and the staircase in the main building is very steep and narrow. The bed covers look seedy and the bedspread on my bed was very dirty looking. The blanket was thin... More

Our room in one that has been pictured often; we had a view of the Campo. I loved the murano glass fixtures, the brocade curtains and coverlet on the bed, the... More

We stayed at the Locanda Al Leon for a couple of days and everything was perfect. The room was in a Venetian style, clean and staff available. The breakfast room is small but you can request it in the room at no extra charge I read the review of the customer who stayed in the same period and I can... More

The room and location of the hotel are nice, and the young man who checked us in at reception was lovely, however the entire stay was tainted by the terrible service at breakfast in the morning. The young man had explained that the breakfast room was small, and due to heritage listing reason they were unable to expand it further.... More

When we made our reservation, the Locanda was booked but they had rooms in their new annex property (across the calle or alley) and we were fortunate that this was the case. The building was very old but had been renovated recently and beautifully done. The bedrooms had all new furniture, reproductions of earlier Venetian styles. The room was relatively... More

Al Leon is in the heart of Venice, with walking distance to just about everything. We were here in April of 2013 and we were two couples traveling by car from Switzerland. We drove over Via Liberta (cause way in to town) and parked in a parkade at 29 Euros per day. Don't be shocked but you might be asked... More

My wife and I spent our last couple nights of an Italian vacation here in October, 2013. This is a charming building over 500 years old on a typical narrow Venice street and just off one of the small piazzas. It is less than a 5 minute walk from one of the vaporetto (water bus) stops (on the Grand Canal)... More

Beautiful, tastefully done hotel. It is very close to and easily accessible on a vaporetti stop. The room and bathroom was very spacious. It is centrally located to the Piazza San Marco. The owners Marcela and Guiliano are very accommodating and great hosts from helping us with our luggage to arranging an early breakfast for us. We would love to... More
