Just returned after staying 4 nights in Venice at the Locanda De La Spada. The hotel is just a few short steps away from the vaporetto stop in a very quiet location, but just five minutes walk away from St Mark's Square. The staff were great and were very welcoming. We had booked a deluxe room but received a complimentary... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon. The service there was wonderful, they upgraded us to a beautiful room with the most amazing views. The location was excellent - easy walk to everywhere we wanted to go and 2 minute walk to the water bus. The daily breakfast was plentiful and delicious! There are a few flights of... More

Location is amazing but that is not the only positive side of this hotel. Rooms are all recently renewed and modern. They have lift and the staff is very kind. The rooms in the front have an amazing view of the Grand Canal but also the one the sides have a cute and more quiet view. Breakfast is the only... More

We visited the Locanda de La Spada in October 2015 and had a great time. The hotel is conveniently located in front of one of the boat ferry docks that head to the Stazione di Venezia and airport ferry. This is extremely convenient considering streets in Venice are very small and there are lots of bridges. Carrying luggages thru these... More

Fab location, right next to the vaporetto stop (and the airport alilaguna boats go from here too), so no walking miles with luggage. Reception staff were courteous and occasionally jovial, which was a pleasant surprise. Yes there are lots of steps to get up to the hotel on the top floor, but this is Venice. It wasn't designed for elevators... More

Let's get right to it: Cons: 1) Rude staff - After the fat porter assisted us with our luggages to our room, we gave him a tip. We then asked him a few questions abut the AC and the adaptors but his manner of response surprised us as he was shouting at us. - While having our breakfast, the old... More

Fabulous boutique hotel, beautiful decor. Lovely, genuinely friendly service. Extraordinary location, an outrageously good view from the front balcony. There are a lot of stairs, but it helps work the pasta off. The porter will obviously take your bags. Words fail us, we had a glorious weekend. Can't wait to go back!

Everything was wonderful about this hotel except for 1 thing. The hotel was literally 20 steps from the water taxi! Perfect location. Next to all of the hot stores and restaurants. Very clean place ( I am very picky)!! Good wifi and amazing breakfast for a place in Europe. They dive you new toiletries everyday and change the sheets daily.... More

Locanda is a gem located steps from the ferry station, tucked a way i a slim alley. The hotel is located in a renovated 13th century building on the top floor. In a city overrun with campy hotels that feature way too many angles and brocades, Locanda has modern boutique style that I love. l booked last minute and got... More
