We booked this bed and breakfast hotel for a 3 night stay on booking.com, and it was a very reasonable price for the San Marco area. The Hotel is situated perfectly in the Giglio area of Venice, right next to San Marco but not too close that you're swamped by tourists and their selfie sticks. There is a vaporetto/alilaguna stop...

This hotel has a prime location. My husband and I decided to take the Alilaguna from the airport. I emailed the hotel prior and they advised to take the Alilaguna orange line. It was a nice picturesque ride on the way to the hotel. We passed Cannaregio, Rialto etc. And after a long flight, I was pleasantly surprised that it... More

The breakfast buffet is amazing!! Delicious assortments of food and drinks. There is basically one floor only with 9 rooms so there isn't much noise or interaction with other people. The bathroom is spacious until it comes to the shower. You can't put your arms up to shampoo your hair that's how small it is. A few rotten taps as... More

Great location just steps from the water taxi. Friendly staff, clean, nice breakfast included, comfortable bed. Not all rooms have a view - ours didn't. No elevator but there is a baggage lift. You must climb a few flights of stairs to get to your room.

We have enjoyed our stay in this lovely hotel. It is modern, clean, contemporary and very well decorated. The location is excellent - just a little distance from the hectic San Marco, but close enough to get into the maddening crowd if you wish. The bed is a little too firm, and pillows a little flat and hard, but the... More

We had a wonderful time at Locanda de La Spado. So easy to find from the water taxi ride from the airport. Literally 10 mt from the taxi stop on the Grand Canal. We had a warm reception and our luggage was taken up to our room. We had to walk a few floors but that was no problem. Our... More

The Locanda de la Spada is a great hotel that was tucked away just off a square, not far from St Marks Square (10 min walk). The hotel doesn't have a lot of rooms which makes it feel very personalised. We only saw other guests at breakfast. Location wise, we couldn't have asked for a better place to be. The... More

We were certainly pleased upon arrival to this hotel, one because of the easy access from the vaperetto stop San Giglio a few steps and you are there. Check-in was quick and efficient and appreciative of the upgrade. There are stairs to climb but we were aware of this and posed no issue for us bags were brought up by... More

This is a beautiful hotel. Our bedroom was spacious and well equipped. Breakfast was lovely. The staff were great. Free wifi. The key point though is location. So close to the water taxi stop at Giglio that you only have to pull your cases about 20 yards on the flat. And you are close to the main attractions, shops, cafes... More

What a fantastic Hotel. Locanda De La Spada far exceeded my expectations. We had a triple room which was not easy to find. It was spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was lovely with a big soaking tub and towel warmer. Right on the Grand Canal and a boat stop, we had stunning views from the balcony off the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A restored home of the 14th century, the Locanda De La Spada overlooks Venice's Grand Canal. The guest house is set on the top floor of Palazzo Contarin-Marin, in the picturesque Campo Santa Maria del Giglio square. The spacious rooms of the Locanda are elegantly furnished in silk, and feature an LCD TV with satellite channels and floors in Terrazzo Veneziano marble or parquet. Some rooms offer a balcony with full views of the canal. A sweet and savoury buffet is served daily for breakfast, and includes pastries. This historic building, with no lift, is just behind the Fenice Theatre, and 400 metres from Saint Mark's Square. A gondola pier and the Santa Maria del Giglio stop of water-bus line 1 are right outside the main door. ... more   less
