Somewhere in Locanda del Ghetto there is a really nice hotel screaming to be released. The location is fantastic and is within walking distance of all Venice landmarks, but all other areas of our stay left us somewhat disappointed. We paid extra to book the Junior Suite, but the television was minuscule, the wifi expensive, the shower head leaked, the curtain was hanging off the rails and the hair drier was broken. Our first night sleep was ruined when a bathroom bulb blew at 3am and tripped the circuit. This switched on the emergency light in our bedroom and took some time to rectify. A more heartfelt apology would have been nice - it wasn't forthcoming. Breakfast starts at 8am, and as we were keen to see the islands we were down 3 minutes early - we got the impression that this was unacceptable. This hotel could be so good...

My partner and I came here for our honeymoon, and were very pleased with this modest, charming, little locanda. I'm a bit at a loss to read some of the very negative reviews. It's not a 5 star hotel, and as the building is a converted, 600 year old, synagogue, it is not lavishly decorated (which we would not have expected). It IS a very comfortable (*HUGE* bed), charming, friendly guesthouse. All the staff were unstintingly helpful & cheerful, and were more than happy to help with odd requests (ie, recharging my iPod, and supplying a corkscrew for an evening bottle of wine). The reception is also open 24 hrs. The bathroom was clean, large & all appliances in both rooms worked. We had a lovely terrace, with a table & 3 chairs, and it was a charming place to while away a few hours reading with our without a bottle of wine. The square is very much a community area, and can be very noisy & lively (which we both loved).

My partner and I are both men, and I would note that, at no point, did we feel uncomfortable here, and we would be happy to recommend it to fellow gay travellers.

Jewish travellers will be happy, as it tries to accommodate shabbos needs (ie. the lights are left on), and the breakfast is kosher. It's also very near several synagogues, two kosher restaurants & a kosher bakers.

As for down points - the breakfast is a very basic continental breakfast, which is fine for what it is (bread rolls, croissant, cereal etc), but maybe fresh juice would be nice, as well as a small selection of different cereals (only Cornflakes were available). Also, I would echo some of the other comments in that, perhaps, a wider range of items might be nice (ie some cheeses, maybe more fruit or yoghurt).

The rooms were very comfortable and kept pretty clean, but I do feel that, perhaps, a bit of a deeper clean could be needed every now and again. as there was a bit of old dust on some less obvious areas (such as the recessed areas of the door). On the whole though, we were fairly happy with the cleanliness of the rooms, so this was not a huge issue.

We were, in essence, *very* pleased with our 7 night stay at the Locanda del Ghetto, and would love to stay here again. We have recommended it to friends, already.

Room Tip: Room 10 has it's own terrace, with a lovely view of the Campo di Ghetto Novo, and a lovely space to spend an evening. Maybe avoid, however, if you value very quiet atmosphere; a canal-side room may be better.

On business and some of my colleagues were staying here so I booked a room here as well. Two of the three members of staff on 24hr reception were a bit weird and grumpy and the third one was a very pleasant & down to earth chap. The room I had is very impressive and good bathroom too, although the Mini bar is nothing to write home about as it was more like a cheap tiny fridge and stuff as much as you can into it and sell for eye watering prices per can like most mini bars usually do. The breakfast for a continental type is the worst breakfast ever had. There were cereal boxes that were 6 months out of date and never replaced throughout the week and the same for the bread rolls which were not fresh and good quality. But there was no milk available at all for breakfast for the 6 nights I had here. You ask for milk and you'll never receive milk. It was just basically a croissant and a couple of sad rolls and jam. I would expect for a continental breakfast to have a bit more variety like yoghurts, cereals apart from cornflakes etc but there wasn't. However, on a lighter note the location was good for if you wanted to be in Venice, but not in the hustle and bustle of the grand canal area and also form the aliaguna lines Vaporetto transport from Marco Polo Airport, it is excellent.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a balcony attached, you need to get a room on the North / Courtyard facing side. South side has a canal in view and the back of the other buildings & that's all. Another caution though is the charges for using Hotels internet is astronomical. €5.00 per 1/2 hour it starts and goes up with little discount. Best internet option if you wanted internet in Venice for the week (7days) is to get a Wi-Fi Venezia Pass which for 7 days only costs €30.00 for unlimited WI-Fi. To get it, simply turn on your Wi-Fi on your phone and look on your select to connect / found networks list, select the Venezia one and then go as if you were to go on the internet and it should come up. Rooms on the North / Court yard facing side have a better chance of internet connectivity than the south as the area is a black spot for Wi-Fi connectivity.

This hotel is a bit hard to find - its own website map was incorrect: after getting off the vaporetto (no 42 I think) you need to turn right and look for the entrance to the correct street, which is between the Farmacia sign and the Gamgam restaurant.

I agree that the breakfast was not very worthwhile, but at least I got a pot of coffee and a croissant to start the day. Our room was lovely and quiet and a good size. The bathroom was okay, but smelled a touch moldy so we just kept the door shut.

The location is great, you can walk to the Rialto bridge or St Marks Square easily and there is a very lively street just a couple of blocks away with plenty of restaurants and shops and street vendors.

We found the front desk staff to be helpful and friendly enough, although we didn't make any extraordinary requests of them.

Given the high cost of hotels in Venice, this was a reasonably good value. Nothing special, but we would stay there again.

My wife and I spent five nights at the Locanda. We were extremely happy with the room and location. Neither could be faulted. But there was a palpable sense of disatisfaction amongst many of the guests. This expressed itself in the Guest Book as a variety of complaints about the Kosher Continental Breakfast which was bordering on the niggardly. Basically, it was cotton-wool bread and jam, plonked ready-selected on your table. I'd prefer a breakfast from a more generous Continent with some yogurt, say, or some fruit. That's still kosher. The real problem, though, was the staff. Actually, everyone could be pleasant but they were reluctant to let you know it. We were the typical Brits and insisted on the usual Good Mornings and smiles. But it was hard work and it took us several days to earn the minimum warmth. I got the impression that the staff would be happier if there were no guests and they could concentrate on their laptops and their sniffing without interruption. None of them should plan a career in the hospitality industry. Would we go back there again, given the pleasing location and room? No, we want a hotel at least to pretend it's glad to see us.

Room Tip: The canalside rooms are quieter. Those overlooking the piazza are dramatic and interesting, but noisy until about 1.00am.
