Something must have changed at this hotel! I made my booking through the Venere website on the back of some good customer reviews but got rather concerned when I ventured onto Trip Advisor for some more information and found it to be rather poorly rated.
I needn't have worried. The stay was fantastic! Having arrived in Venice late in the evening due to flight delays a quick call to Carlo ensured we were given precise directions for the vaporetto which took us to Rialto where we were met in person and shown the way to the Locanda. Having booked the Suite it was a trek up several flights of stairs to the "penthouse" (hehe).
The suite itself is on two levels - the lower having a large sofa, table, chairs and bathroom with (small) shower - the upper, reached by a stone staircase being the bedroom with a door onto the private rooftop terrace. Although far from cutting edge design the Locanda is comfortable, private and very roomy, The terrace has a lovely view across the Venetian rooftops and down to the adjacent canal.
Breakfast was brought to our room at 8:15 in the morning each day (precisely the time we had requested) and consisted of fresh coffee, croissants, rolls etc. Not haut cuisine but nevertheless the ideal thing to start a day in Venice.
Location wise it couldn't be better situated being in a quiet street just five minutes from both St.Marks Square and the Rialto Bridge.
All in all I couldn't have asked for more. If you're looking for big flashy hotels with room service on tap and a swimming pool then this is not for you but if you're looking for a private, quirky and unique bolthole in Europe's most romantic city then book with confidence..... and be sure to ask for the suite!
