The Locanda Cavanella is a small sweet little place. Under 10 rooms, good location, clean & friendly staff. My husband & I started our two week Italy trip at this hotel. I had emailed before our arrival to get best directions based on our travel from the airport. Selena replied with very detailed directions & said to call if we... More

Host very welcoming and contacted us prior to arrival to find out what time we would be arriving. Gave us door code as we were arriving "out of hours". Excellent location. Near to a great pizza/kebab bar. Very near the San Zaccaria waterbus stop.

2 minutes from Piazza San Marco and 1 block from the Grand Canal, this nice Locanda is a perfect place to stay in Venice. It's clean and have all you need and costs less than 1/2 of a similar hotel in Venice.

This is a very basic bed and Breakfast which was perfect for us. The place is clean, the rooms are clean and tidy. Breakfast is basic. The staff are very friendly. The hotel is in an excellent location close to san Marco square but out of the noise of tour groups.

Made reservations and prepaid from home or we would have looked for something else after the first night. Owner was personable and helpful but accommodations were minimal and breakfast was on the spartan side...packaged breads, sugary fruit drink...obviously cutting corners. We stayed in convents in Rome, Florence, and Orvieto and the breakfasts were comparatively sumptuous...variety of fresh breads, meats, cheeses,... More

We found this place to be our worst experience ever! First, the lobby is shared with bags of dirty, smelly laundry. The friendly manager showed us to our very disappointing 1950's decor room. Our daughters (12 & 14) were given fold-up cots (circa WWII). Our bed was extremely uncomfortable! I think my sleeping bag on a cement floor would have... More

We staid 3 nights in Locanda Cavanella, with 36 EUR/per night for double room with breakfast. The city tax was 1.75 EUR/night/person. which was too much for 1 star hotel. The room was nice , warm and clean with a very small bathroom with shower. The buffet breakfast was poor, in fact was not a real buffet as long as... More

Ideally situated right where it is all happening. Just five minutes walk from St Marks Square, about three minutes to the vaporetto stop from the airport and the Grand Canal. A quite charming old building with decorative touches to the walls and ceilings. Nice period furniture in the rooms. Comfortable beds and good double glazed windows. A new owner, Aldo,... More

Been there 2 days, found them by chance, rerouted by an overbooking. Very pleasant, helpful manager, changed 10 days ago, absolutely central near s. Marco, clean newly furbished room, stilish. Do not expect luxury and wide spaces, you have the Danieli nearby for that at less than 500eur/night. Spent 110 eur for a double and it is good value.

Finding this hotel reminded me of the old Peter Sarstead song with the line Born in the back streets of Naples ... except you are in Venice. This hotel is not always manned but a short phone call to the emergency number will get you quick service if no one is on reception. The hotel is what it says it... More
