Close enough to the busy stuff, but not swamped. Right by a boat stop. Had a fantastic breakfast, one of the better ranges of choice I'd seen in a while. Generally a very good experience with the staff (one noted exception). The room was very modern and everything was new and stylish. Wifi was per room and was strong. No... More

this hotel is in an ideal location with one of the best views across the grand canal. If we return to Venice we'd book again! It's also conveniently next to one of the main stops for hopping on and off of the public transport and easy walking distance to some of the main sites of Venice

I did a Reservation one month in advance to my arrival. They sent a confirmation number. Just a few days prior to arrive they sent a mail notifying that reservation was canceled. I had book 3 rooms and they offered to replace for 2 rooms at the same price of the initial 3 rooms. Very bad solution for 3 couples!!... More

Mirco G, Direttore at Locanda De La Spada, responded to this review

Dear Mr. Jorge T. We are sincerely sorry that your reservation was not successful. Unfortunately you did not send your credit card details to guarantee the reservation, as had been requested several times by e-mail. The reservation of 3 double rooms was a booking 'non-refundable' (price reduced by 25%) with the obvious requirement of advance payment, but without your credit... More

We booked at the last minute and we're very surprised to be able to get a room in a hotel/pension right at Canal Grande, close to S. Marco. Most rooms have a view on a side canal with passing gondolas and the occasional singer (very romantic) while one can enjoy a spectacular view on the end of the Canal from... More

Personally, I give it a bit above average. A good rating. When we arrived, the room was not ready and be told be ready in 30 mins. So we went to have lunch and left our bags there, disappointed that after an hour plus, we came back our bags were still sitting there. Well the reception was not friendly to... More

A good choice considering how expensive hotels generally are in Venice. Excellent location - about 50m away from the Giglio Vaperetto stop which connects directly to Santa Lucia station (Line 1) and the Airport Line to Marco Polo Airport. Modern but smallish rooms with not that much space for luggage. Breakfast was however fantastic, with a fantastic range - there... More

Let's start with the best thing about the hotel - the views!! If you have a water-facing room, you have the most lovely view over the Gran Canale - exactly as you see on the hotel website. The location also is excellent. Close to st Marks Square, but down a quiet alleyway, away from the hustle and bustle, and the... More

We flew to venice to start our honeymoon, we stayed for 3 nights at the Locanda De La Spada and we had an amazing time.
