We recently stayed 4 nights at this little hotel, what a gem. Rooms are on the top floor (80 steps up) but they are well worth the climb. We had room 310 which didn't have a view of the G C but it was huge. Separate bedroom with a massive bed, big lounge with a strange spiral staircase going nowhere... More

We stayed 3 nights at locanda de la spada. Great location. Just 5 minutes away from san marco. 5 minutes away from academia bridge where you reach to dorsoduro area. Giglio vaporetto stop is just front of the hotel. We stayed in the room 307. It was not facing directly the Grand Canal but facing the small canal near the... More

I stayed here for three nights in March and i had a lovely experience! The location is very central (only located in an alley which was hard to spot at first), staff are very friendly, hotel is extremely clean and, lastly, the views are superb! I must admit however to two downfalls of the hotel: Firstly, there are is no... More

Right in the heart of the busiest tourist spot in Venice lies the hotel which makes it such a convenient location not only because the ferry stop is a hop and a skip away but also because Piazza San Marco is. Gear up to climb a flight of stairs as the hotel has an elevator only for luggage. Though the... More

Perfect location in San Marco. Hotel is lovely. Wifi is a bit ropey and setting out breakfast at 6am is a bit loud, but other than that it was perfect. Would def go back! Perfect location to walk around from or to jump onto the water bus. Wasn't too hard to find...

This hotel is a 2 minute wallk from the Santa Maria del Giglio alilaguna line. The hotel has no lift for people but does have a small one for bags. We arrived early and were able to leave our bags in the storage room. The room was clean and airy with everythng we could possibly need. Our room was on... More

I loved our stay here. Location was perfect. As soon as you come off the water bus your at your hotel. The rooms where spotless and really nicely decorated. Breakfast was great and the view onto grand canal was just perfect. Honestly cannot fault the place in anyway. Enjoyed our stay so much.

We stayed here with my wife and our 1 and a half year old son. The hotel was pretty hard to find since we didn`t receive really any instructions to where it is. We wandered around the area for 2 hours before finding it. We even took a taxi boat (very expensive) to the approximate location, even he didn`t know... More

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
