This is a great smaller inn to definitely consider when planning your Venice vacation. We were greeted promptly and provided the three of us with assistance to get our luggage up the stairs to our nice, freshly remodeled room. The breaksfast was more than adequate and the location, just about 5 minutes from St Marks Square and the Bridge of... More

Perfect location, modern equipments, with the old charm, very nicely furnished. Staff is very helpful. Close to San Marco but very quiet at night. Breakfast is very nice , actually much better than our hotel in Rome. Would have loved to stay longer and definitely will come back

Our second visit to Locanda al Leon, always a pleasure. Right behind San Marco Square, easy access to boats, shopping, and dining. Rooms are well appointed in this historic building, simple but clean. The breakfast is well done, plenty to start the day. I'm sure there are other nice B&Bs, and plenty of hotels that cost more to much more.... More

This hotel was wonderful and charming. It is very close to San Marco but on a small and quiet street. I wish we could have stayed longer. The owner and staff were extremely helpful. They gave great suggestions on restaurants. A sample of the excellent service we received was on the morning we were departing for the cruise ship terminal... More

Locanda al Leon came with excellent Trip Advisor recommendations and lived up to each and every expectation we might have had. First, the communication before arriving in Venice was excellent – timely and always answered any questions we might have had. Second, since we had been traveling for two weeks we had a good bit of luggage and did not... More

Perfect little hotel just a very short walk from Piazza San Marco. The room was neat, spacious, and very clean. It included modern conveniences without sacrificing the old-world charm of this 15th century home turned hotel. The staff at the front desk, especially Marco, were very helpful (Great suggestions for restaurants!) and made us feel very welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

The hotel was beautiful and charming, and as close to San Marco as you could wish without being caught in too much bustle. The owner and staff are kind and extremely helpful. I would have stayed here for a week if I could. Clean, modern accoutrements but old-world charm. Everything you could want for in the city of romance.

This was a very quaint hotel located on a small street in a great location. We stayed in the annex, which had a separate entrance. The room was very comfortable, clean and furnished very nicely. We were welcomed in a tiny lobby by the friendliest and warmest people. They continually answered our questions and gave us good advice. Breakfast was... More

From the moment we were buzzed through the secured door at Locanda Al Leon and were greeted by Marco (Giuliano;s Nephew), we knew we'd selected the perfect place to stay in Venice. We'd actually reserved two rooms for our party of five-adults and Marcella and Giuliano thought we'd be more comfortable in the apartment so presented us with the pleasant... More

Fabulous location; clean; comfortable; lovely owners; 2 br/2 bath apt had beds for all four family members. We, being from the US, thought "2 star hotel" meant sort-of yucky--not at all. It meant "no view." We were hardly in our apt except to sleep so it was perfect and affordable. It was dark since all windows looked out onto other... More
