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. Our room was located on the top floor beside the breakfast hall which has a balcony looking out to the grand canal (very romantic). The window of our bedroom gave us a lovely view of... More

The staff seem a bit clueless and were not very helpful. They weren't very aware of things around Venice. Also, often we found them a bit nonchalant and sort of rude ( don't think they meant to be rude but they were just not of a very sunny disposition). Even the breakfast team were busy doing their " job" without... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights in this beautiful location last week. Convenient location just steps away from the Giglio public water taxi stop, with a beautiful view of the Grand Canal. WiFi in the room was fantastic and the staff were always friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was also great. We will definitely be recommending this hotel... More

Stayed here for an amazing surprise trip to Venice. Staff were very pleasant, breakfast was great and the view of the grand canal was beautiful! I got engaged during my trip and staying in such a lovely hotel made it even better!

Went there with my mother to show her Venice, and: CONS: - no elevator. Very hard for a granny to climb to the top 3 times a day. Truly speaking they have elevator, but it is for luggage only. They will tell you you could use it to bring a person up or down, but it operating it is so... More
