“What a place!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

My wife and I finished up our two-week "trip of a lifetime" with two nights in Venice. Venice is ridiculously expensive and so this place may feel like a bunch, especially for a three-star hotel. However, I tend to feel like it was a nicer hotel than that. It's was extremely personal, the staff was amazing and accommodating and the location fantastic.

There are a ton of steps to get the hotel, which is very inconvenient and annoying, but that is the only drawback to this place. Our room was clean and very Venetian. The staff would print out anything and everything you needed, which made up for a lack of a business center. Plus, this place was small enough that you felt special. And breakfast, amazing! A fully-stocked breakfast area with an incredible feel of the Grand Canal.

All in all, a fantastic place and highly recommended!!!

We luckily stumbled on this hotel. It is very close to Bridge Rialto. You over look the main canal when having breakfast (EXCELLENT breakfast)
Service was outstanding. We arrived from the 30 minute walk from the station and they gave us a cool drink. Room was nicely done. Big with a few windows for air movement. Also had a fridge.
If you don't like stairs this can be an issue. About 80 steps steeply up to get to the hotel floor.

We have just returned from hotel at weekend. Thanks to Italian transport our flight home was cancelled on friday and the earliest next one was sunday. It took us a while to find a hotel with 2 rooms available next day in venice but the Sturion came up trumps. What a beautiful hotel and fantastic location. Staff could not have been friendlier, carried our case up stairs and had glass of juice waiting for us, wonderfull. The rooms are really nice, very light and with everything you can need, i.e. coffee/tea maker, mini bar etc. Breakfast was very good in a room with fantastic views. All in all a great find, especially as our airline will pay part of the bill and an amount towards dinner, Thanks Stelios!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: rooms 1 and 2 would be great if you can get them, also you have to ring the bell in bronze lions mou...

This place is a gem for the price. Venice seemed super expensive for a decent hotel but we were lucky enough to find Locanda Sturion. It is nearly on top of the Rialto bridge, very central location 5 min walk to San Marco. It was clean and the staff were friendly. They had an amazing included breakfast in a charming breakfast room overlooking the grand canal. The shower was small and you will need to climb 4 flights of stairs to get to the front desk, but I had no other qualms with this place. Thanks for a charming experience

Super close to Rialto Bridge, nice decor, view of Canal Grande from the breakfast room! Nice breakfast for Italian standards, decent service, although it was not possible to get us a useful insect repellant at the reception, which is on the third floor (no elevator). In sum a pretty unique experience, that might just be worth what they are asking for.

Room Tip: Consider a room in the second building, 50 meters away. Those are nice and quiet.

Nice traditional Venetian style hotel in a fantastic location. No elevator but not a big issue, you soon get used to the stairs. The real bonus of being on Grand Canal only 50 meters from Rialto bridge - no chance of getting lost here - just follow any of the signs around Venice "Per Rialto" that are on every second corner and the hotel is right there. Boat stop direct from airport stops on other side of canal but easy enough to walk over bridge and get to hotel.

Room Tip: Canal view rooms are fantastic to wake up to and look out on.

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.

"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, Helen and Flavia, who will do all their best to provide you with specific suggestions and advice for an unusual and intriguingly unique approach to our town.
