Reviewed February 21, 2014

Could not ask for anything better. The hotel is immaculately clean, food was excellent and the hotel staff superior. The location too is excellent. located across the Grand Canal from the Rialto dock.

Room and shower were satisfactory. Hospitality, breakfast, location all were excellent. Clean, comfortable, but oh... the stairs. The were chocolates to greet us, and a tea pot, which was nice (although in room 4, there was no plug by the pot, so I had to put it on the night stand or on the floor.)

Overall, if you can manage the stairs, I recommend the hotel.

For a treat, booking the more expensive rooms 1 or 2 is worthwhile, so is climbing the stairs... After all, you are in Venice where you'll go up and down many stairs over the numerous bridges. You do not need to carry your luggage up the stairs though as hotel staff will do this for you. But do not forget, Venice has many bridges and you will already have pulled your suitcase up a few bridges and hobbled down.... That is part of traveling and different experiences :)). The hotel is clean, staff friendly and helpful. No complaints about the mattress in room 1, even though harder than what I am used to. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Room 1 and 2 are the ones with the view of Rialto and Canale Grande

Great location, unforgettable views, staff that go extra 10 miles for you, old charm décor, good breakfast you will experience if you choose this hotel. We was very happy there shore there are a few little details that some people would not like (stairs, amenities) but once you sitting by the window in your room (or breakfast room that has same view of grand canal) you will be glad you have chosen this hotel.

Room Tip: rooms 1 and 2 have view of grand canal

Stayed in the later part of august, in room #1 (canal view). Pros: great location, great view, room very spacious, good breakfast, good A/C (we were there on the tail-end of a heat wave, so there was an extra, portable air-conditioner in this room), good wiFi and helpful, friendly, accommodating staff. For me, the loooong flight of stairs was entertaining. I pack light and am able-bodied so stairs were of no concern, but they wouldn't be fun for everyone (elderly, injured, people with large suitcases). You learn very quickly not to forget stuff when leaving for the day. Cons: of all the beds I slept in in Italy, this was by far the hardest, most uncomfortable; perhaps, like the hotel, the mattresses are also four centuries old. Hairdryer was...odd, and not particularly effective, the "american" coffee was awful so request a cappuccino. This is Italy after all....

Room Tip: Room #1 was spacious and had an amazing view. The bed was really hard.

I originally reserved a lower priced room for 3 nights thinking the hotel's location was ideal for our exploration of Venice (which it definitely was! Centrally located and at the Rialto Bridge--a major landmark). Prior to our arrival, I upgraded to room #2 for the first two of the nights (it was already booked by another patron for our third night). This was MY treat to myself and what a wonderful treat it was. I spent the early mornings and late evenings perched in one of the two windows just watching Venice. Yes, there are 70 steps up to the hotel but then everything is pretty much on one floor. We just enjoyed the climb as part of the adventure. The hotel staff were wonderfully friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the breakfast (assorted cold cuts and cheese, fresh croissants, bread, fruit, coffee and juice) was substantial. We were in room #8 for our third and final night, no view but the beds were still comfortable.

Room Tip: Rooms number 1 and 2 are on the front of the hotel and have a wonderful view out onto the Grand Cana...

"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.
