“Great stay in Venice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

Antica Locanda Sturion has a great location but also good rooms, a lovely and simple breakfast and genuinely good service. Love the views from the breakfast room! The one exception was a rude encounter with staff about whether or not they take American Express (they do but the person who informed us could not have been more rude). That's just one experience, though, and the only negative one I can report after two different visits over the years.

Charming hotel in great location! Located on the 3rd and 4th floor in one of the old houses at the Rialto bridge. Great view from the dining room of the Grand Canal. Life on the canal can also be followed live on the screen in the dining room. Good and simple breakfast. Slept well! Friendly staff. Recommended for sporty people as there is no lift and lots of stairs! Still a recommended hotel!

Yes, everyone complains about the stairs, and it is true, it is quite a climb! But its Venice! Embrace and enjoy the lovely nuisance of tiny streets, Venice skyscrapers and all that comes with it!
The hotel is nice and clean, the proprietaries also own a restaurant on the other side of the canal where you will get a discount if you mention you are staying at the hotel, the food there is incredible good! their wine list is amazing !

I stayed in one of the rooms facing the canal, beautiful view! Breakfast is light and an excellent way to start your day

Room Tip: Take one of the rooms facing the canal! I was in room #1

It's true, the stairs can be a bit of a challenge but as you said "this is Venice".
Thanks for sending in a few words of contentment.
Glad you enjoyed the lovely food at the Bistrot de Venise.
Bye till your next visit. Hopefully!

From the beginning, Venice is a unique journey. This hotel will add to the experience. This hotel is very old and the layout shows it's age. According to the staff, the hotel was built around the year 1200. Because of its age, it does not have an elevator and you have climb three flight of stairs. While this may sound bad, most places in Venice do not have elevators and does not take anything away from the hotel.

The hotel has a great view of the Grand Canal. The staff are extremely helpful and do a great job. The rooms have the Venetian style and has you believe you are part of the Venetian history. The bathroom were pretty modern and along with most of the amenities of the hotel including wifi.

Breakfast had a limited choice, but I don't really eat breakfast. The coffee was good enough for me. This hotel was reasonably priced for its value. I truly recommended it for the Venetian experience.

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
