We spent six days in Venice and enjoyed our stay at this fine hotel. Our room by a side canal was large and comfortable and we enjoyed the small boat traffic and a few gondolas that sailed by our window. The breakfasts were good and well run, the staff is friendly but we were told there would be a concierge, when there really isn't one, just desk clerks, some with limited English. Other than the fact that the shower is the smallest we encountered in four weeks in Italy, we had absolutely no complaints until the last 24 hours. We returned to our room to find the door was wide open, which is always alarming. Luckily nothing was taken. What was truly upsetting occurred the final morning, when we were preparing to leave for the airport. We had almost finished breakfast and were ready to leave when the desk clerk told us the Vaporetto wasn't running because of a regatta. What???? Why someone didn't tell us about that earlier is still beyond us. We paid for our stay the night before and it wasn't mentioned then, in spite of our saying we wanted to get an early start. Nor was it mentioned at our 6:45 wake up call. If we had been told then, we would have made it to the last Vaporetto before the regatta began. It was raining and we were very lucky to be able to quickly hail the last water taxi on the canal, which cost us an extra 40 euros, plus the loss of the Vaporetto ride we'd already paid for in a seven day pass. On the bus to the airport, we learned from other travelers who stayed at different hotels that they were warned about the regatta the day before AND their hotels made alternate plans for them. We really felt let down by Locanda.
