We started our Honeymoon in Venice, and stayed here at the Locanda Leon Bianco (white lion inn) for 3 nights. Initially, we were planning to stay at the Hotel Rialto, but they didnt have any canal front rooms available at booking time. We were able to get a canal front junior suite, which was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was brought on a tray to our room every morning - excellent apricot-filled croissants, juice and some other breads and fruit spreads.
Waking up every morning to the view of the hustle and bustle of the canal was amazing. At first, I was worried we would be too far from everything, but once we got out and explored, I found we were in the heart of it all! Shops, restaurants, bars all within a 5 minute walk, the Rialto bridge an ca d oro equally closeby, easy access to the water taxi, etc.
The room itself was big and spacious, and has the standard amenities, plus free wifi access. The first picture in the professional photos above was he room we stayed in, Room 4, probably the best view of them all, as it is a corner, canal front room that has full body windows. The bathroom looks recently renovated, while the main room had an older feel, but comfortable. If you're a hotel snob, you might be disappointed for the lack of lavish features, but for canal front at 450 euros for 3 nights, this place cannot be beat! The only thing that was a little odd for us, which seems to be normal in Italy, is that double bed really means double bed - its 2 smaller beds attached together by the sheets. :)
We absolutely loved Venice, and the Locanda Leon Bianco helped make it a magical experience. If you've heard stories or rumors about the smell of the canal, I can tell you that it was never an issue in our room, even with windows open, day or night. (We found Florence to stink a lot worse!)
We will definitely be back to Venice, and definitely will be back to the Locando Leon Bianco!
