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

I am very pleased to have read the reviews on Trip Advisor when planning our trip, and for booking the Locanda de la Spada for our visit to Venice, Italy. My friend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights and we were very happy with our decision. This was a very modern well appointed boutique hotel, in an... More

i went there in december and the place is awesome! it takes five minutes from the centre and is in the middle of the shopping's ways. from your room you can see the real venice but sometimes the smell isn't really nice. the boat station of the hotel is really helpful to move to the centre.

We stayed for 5 nights at this lovely small hotel. Perfect location for exploring Venice. Vaparetto stops just metres away and the traghetto is very close too. The staff were all excellent, welcoming and friendly. Attention to detail and cleanliness were first class. Breakfast was delicious and there was so much variety - lots of fruit, pastries, breads, cakes, cold... More

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
