Like any hotel in Venice, La Locandiera can be a challenge to find initially but it is very easy to orient yourself once you are there. My husband and I stayed there for three nights during our vacation to Italy in July 2012.
La Locandiera is situated just off of a quiet square and is bordered by a small canal, so the hotel feels more secluded than it is. In reality, it is a short walk from Piazza San Marco and other key Venice sights, and there are so many restaurants nearby that it can be difficult to choose!
The guest rooms are bright, clean, and comfortable, and there are very inviting common sitting areas if you want to rest at the hotel but do not necessarily feel like hanging out in your room. Aside from a small bit of noise from the canal, the hotel was very quiet.
The continental breakfast was average with a somewhat limited selection of items, especially for the health conscious and vegetarians, but the coffee was very good and the dining area was lovely.
The hotel staff were professional, courteous, and genuinely friendly. One gentleman, for example, helped us with our luggage and showed us to the front desk even though he was in the middle of doing something else when we arrived. I later saw him help guide a family, including carrying part of its luggage, to the vaporetto dock five minutes away. The other staff we encountered were no less friendly.
Although we stayed here as a couple, this would be a very convenient hotel for families as well. We would gladly stay here again on a future trip to Venice.
