The room was small, but very modern and clean. I loved that we could enjoy the views of the Grand Canal from the balcony in the breakfast area. The gondoliers singing as they passed by our room in the canal below was an added bonus... just made it magical! The hotel is conveniently located close to the Vaporetto stop and was easy to find when we arrived... a huge plus! You are walking distance to St. Mark's Square (and everywhere else in Venice), but out of the hustle and bustle. Rooms are on the fourth floor, so there are lots of stairs to climb... good way to work off the pasta and wine:) Hotel staff were nice, but the least helpful of the three hotels we stayed at in terms of recommendations. The only downside was the location of our room, which was directly across from the breakfast room ... we were woken every morning EARLY by the banging of pots and pans and dishes.
- 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
