Do not stay on the ground floor - the room smells very badly of sewage. The room was very tiny and not impressive. The staff told us the bad smell is just a fact of Venice since the city is built over water. But it was quite unpleasant. We were able to move, but only for our last night, to a better room with more space and no smell. Breakfast was terrible; the worst croissants we had in all of Europe. Really not edible. You get some sort of dried packaged bread that we did not eat. The Internet was very poor and did not work at all in the room, only in the lobby. The good: location is fine and you can walk to the train station and the grocery store.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the ground floor - their standard rooms - very bad sewage smell. If you pay cash you...

My friend and I had the best experience at Locanda Ca' Le Vele. The hotel is beautiful, comfortable and affordable -- and not to mention, in a great location! Ivan was especially helpful and advised us on the best places to venture and eat all while patiently answering additional questions we had. I would definitely go back, and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Venice.

My daughter and I have just spent four nights in one of the rooms overlooking a small canal. Having read other reviews on TripAdvisor the Locanda totally lived up to my expectations. Its location means that you can walk to anywhere in the city and, after a tiring day, return to the Ca d"Oro vaporetto stop which is very close. In addition there is a traghetto stop (the poor man's gondola) nearby. Breakfast in our room was very adequate and altogether I have no hesitation in recommending Ca' Le Vele. I am looking forward to returning to Venice with my husband and shall definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Worth paying for a canal view

I stayed here with my son at the end of August and beginning of July. The location is great. The room was comfortable and clean and the shower was excellent. Breakfast was served in the room. It was nothing to write home about (like most breakfasts in Italy). I just think that for a few cents more they could give you proper Nutella and better coffee. That is my only complaint. Staff were friendly and helpful too.

This place was in a great location, the last place we stayed on our interrailing journey whilst back packing round Italy!

We stayed in one of the cheaper rooms, which looked equally amazing in traditional Venetian decor, only negative was the room overlooked the hallway and didn't have a curtain on and the light was left on all night which kept the room bright whilst trying to sleep. ..the pillows were also quite hard.

Other than that, totally fab , very romantic and looked great on picks

Room Tip: Get a room with a curtain and fluffier pillows

Our family of 4 stayed there for 2 nights in a large spaciaous room overlooking the canal. Our hosts were just fabulous - friendly, flexible and most helpful. Breakfast was great and the rooms just lovely - real Venice flavour. Great position, easy to find and right on the doorstop of the vaporetto and all the great shops. Great value for money and just a joy. Thanks to Max! Definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the canal - but dont if you have small kids as the windows open right on...
