"Antica Locanda Sturion," probably Venice’s most ancient hotel still running, is a cosy small Venetian House featuring just 11 rooms. Its decor, the ancient style furniture and the Venetian red damask and brocade make it special, creating a truly traditional unique and cosy feeling. A welcoming place from the past with superb and very impressive views on the Grand Canal and Rialto Bridge from the two Superior Rooms and the beautiful Breakfast Lounge, which is also: - a reading room with a tiny yet well-stocked library boasting a number of books in various languages.- a living room for an afternoon break and taking photos of the magnificent sunsets on the Grand Canal. You have just to take a look in the evening or early morning to breathe the magic of Venice and take a dip in the past and its atmosphere. Truly a breathtaking view! This Boutique Hotel is a small and well-established family business run by Nicole, Manuela, Erica, Flavia and Helen who will do all their best to provide you with specific suggestions and advice for an unusual and intriguingly unique approach to our town. And in all our old-style rooms you will find the kettle to prepare a good cup of tea or coffee with complimentary cookies to rest after a long city tour. In a nutshell the right place to breath a truly Venetian and romantic atmosphere. As there is no lift to reach the Locanda, situated on the top floor of an Ancient Palace on the Grand Canal, we want our Guest to be aware they have to climb a long stairs. The hotel is smoke-free. Recall that the hotel offers breakfast for Celiac (Gluten Free) Features:- Gluten-free breakfast for Celiac.- Bar- Breakfast buffet: 08:00 am to 9:30 am- Kettle with Tea & Coffee & Biscuits in all rooms- Check out: 11:00 am- Check in 02:00 pm on- Our restaurant "Bistrot de Venise"- Our Residenza Bistrot de Venise flats Facilities:- Breakfast for Celiac (Gluten Free)- Library in several languages, dedicated to Venice’s history and art.- Parking, special Garage agreement in Piazzale Roma- 10% discount at TripAadvisor & Michelin Top rated "Bistrot de Venise"- Internet Point: complimentary- Free Internet Wi-Fi: complimentary- I-Pad: complimentary use for our Guests (if available)- Fax service- Classical Music Concerts: schedules and booking- Tourist information of any kind- Tour of Murano glassworks and the Laguna islands, schedules and booking- Baggage room- Paid transfer service on request.

Lovely hotel. It’s dated but I think it’s adds to the feel of old antique look. Very clean and the staff are amazing, really helpful. Location is a dream for Venice and the views for breakfast are incredible. Breakfast is very good. Lots of stairs to the hotel so bare that in mind. Would 100% stay again :)

We stayed at the junior suite for one night with Grand Canal view. For a 3 star hotel it's clean and neat. It's located in San Polo very close to Rialto station. I would recommend staying in San Polo for easy access to the biggest attractions and close to everything and still pushed back a bit from the heavy tourism. It's a charming hotel with very nice and helpful staff. The continental breakfast was disappointing.

When we booked our room at Antica Locanda Sturion, a 3* hotel in direct vicinity to the Rialto Bridge, we were hoping for a reasonably clean, basic hotel in prime Venice location. What we got - a charming little hotel, squeaky clean, a bottle of Prosecco as a welcome gift, super helpful staff, a delicious breakfast with views over the Grand Canal. Only catch - you need to love red wallpaper... all in all a small, perfect little hotel for a great price!

We spent a wonderful week here after Easter. Spotless, great location, friendly service, decent breakfast, all day coffee... what’s not to like! The lack of a lift may be an issue for those with mobility problems, but a bonus for burning pizza calories off 😋

I can not say enough good things about this hotel. It was the perfect place to end my two week vacation in Italy. The hotel is beautiful, ideally located, and so welcoming. I LOVED my stay here. The staff was friendly, and went beyond and above to help make my stay perfect. The room was comfortable, well decorated and I could not believe my eyes with the view from the window! The staircase is a beast, but the hotel let me know in advance what to expect, so I was ready for it. It actually added to the charm. Be prepared to carry your luggage up three flights of stairs. If you're prepared for that, everything else is perfect. The location only steps away from the Rialto Bridge is idealistic. I literally can't say how much I loved staying at this hotel. I was texting friends back home bragging about what a wonderful experience it was. I imagine you will too! Antica Locanda Sturion is perfect.
