“Romantic and quite hotel close to San Marco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

We stayed for two night in June, and were pleasantly surprised by this gem of a hotel.
The location is perfect, very romantic on a little square and canal, close to San Marco, but also very quiet.

The staff was helpful, though you have to walk about 150m to the Hotel Casa Verardo for assistance, and the excellent breakfast (for Italian standards).

Definitely recommend!

We stayed for one night in May and were disappointed to find the wifi comes at an additional fee of 10 euros for 10 hours. It is a bit mis-leading to list wifi as available in the rooms and not disclose it is for an additional fee. This hotel is clearly the cheaper step sister of the Hotel Casa Verado where reception & the breakfast are located. The towels & bed linens seem to be the worn out ones from next door. The bed was comfortable enough but the bathroom had a black mildew problem in the shower. The breakfast is also a bit chintzy - they could do better.

We booked for a 5 night stay in March 2013. Upon arrival in Marco Polo, I would recommend purchasing a return water bus ticket for 27 euro's per person at the machines near baggage collection. It's very straightforward and easy to get to Venice island and takes about 50 minutes depending on where you stay,

Hotel is very easy to find from St Marks square and is a 5 minute walk. You check in at the hotel which was very efficient and staff are friendly.

The room ( 14 ) was an excellent size with loads of wardrobe space, a king size bed, a sofa bed and small tv. Bathroom was a good size and shower was excellent. Towels are provided and were changed daily.

Breakfast is served over on the 1st floor of the main hotel ( literally around the corner ) and was standard continental (cereals, fruit juice, ham and cheese, breads, croissants and yoghurts ).

The hotel offers a free water taxi out to Murano to watch glass being blown - not a bad morning out but bear in mind you will pay for a return water bus which takes over an hour to return and is 7 euros per person.

The biggest and best tip is take wellies and if you hear the flood alarms go off in the evenings, you have approx 4 hours before the streets literally flood! My wife and I ignored this on one evening and had to wade to get back ( although was a great and funny talking point! )

Watch out for tourist menu's in restaraunts and do your homework before you go about where to eat. Take recommendations on this as we ghot stung on a number of occassions ( 200 euros for a meal for 2 which was average ) Bear in mind 75% of all visitors coming to Venice don't stay the night and so the restaraunts want to get you in, charge you the earth and serve you pub food at best. They are not interested in repeat business. I would recommend Pano Vino e San Daniele in Dorsoduro - excellent food and great service.

Gondola's are a must and are priced at 80 euros for 40 minutes. MAKE sure you get one from a main Gondola stand as we overheard someone being charged 110 euros from one of the smaller ones. we used the Gondola stand outside Hotel Danielle, right opposite the palace.

Whilst we stayed for 5 nights, you could do Venice easily in 3 nights. There isn't much to do on an evening unless you are eating.

The History of Venice show was great and is performed in English. Wouldn't recommend taking the Italian Dining option with it as it was again, at best, pub food. Tickets were 49 euro's per person including food or 39 euro's without.

Bear in mind to keep back euro's for checkout. The Tourist Tax is payable upon departure in cash only. We payed 25 euros in total for the both us for the 5 nights but this varies by hotel classification.

Would definately recommend this hotel for a great location, no frills, big, clean rooms and well serviced.

We arrived in the early evening and with the help of Google map navigation, we easily found our way there. Note that the check in is done at a different hotel, but it is really only a 1 min walk away, literally around the corner - note that this is also where you come for breakfast, which was simple, but very refreshing.

Our check in experience was pleasant. We made the mistake of not identifying our daughter as a 3rd person, but the front desk manager made it easy for us and made adjustments for us accordingly.

Room was very clean and was simply furnished. Everything were in working order.

Location was superb. Everything was close by. But then again, I don't think this was unique to La Locandiera. There are many, many other hotels in the area.

We have stayed at La Locandiera many times over the past 8 years and have always enjoyed our stay. The rooms are well furnished and the beds comfortable. Breakfast is a standard continental one, but plenty of it. As this is classed as a "locanda" rather than a hotel, there is no reception, but there is a lounge for use of the guests and, if a problem should arise, it can be reported at the sister hotel, Casa Verardo which is a couple of minutes walk away and where you can get a coffee at any time.
The staff of both hotels are extremely friendly and helpful and I don't hesitate to recommend La Locandiera.

Room Tip: I have it on the authoity of the member of staff who cleans the room that number 32 is the best! It...

I have used La Locandiera for a number of years as a base for a group of photographers from the UK - and this year from Canada as well - during Carnival.
It is one of a relatively few hotels on Venice island which is near Piazza San Marco and the bus and taxi stops which can be reached without having to cross any bridges. Although Reception is in the neighbouring Casa Verdaro you can leave your luggage at La Locandiera before going over the bridge to the other hotel which only takes a minute or so.
Claudio and his team really do their best to ensure that the group have no problems while staying at La Locandiera and, without exception, the photographers with me were impressed by the standards at the hotel.
As photographers visiting Venice for Carnival we find that La Locandiera is perfectly placed to take early morning pictures of the figures - being only a 3 minute walk from the lagoon and a 5 minute walk from Piazza San Marco - before returning for a leisurely breakfast once all the day trippers arrive.
The small square where the hotel is situated is very quiet in the evenings and at night which is a bonus, as is the number of bars and restaurants which are very close.
I will be using La Locandiera for Carnival in 2014.

The location is very quiet, with great views of a small, quaint canal out back. The hotel is very close to San Marco Plaza and service was top-notch. We stayed here in April of 2007 (TripAdvisor only offered 2012 as an option for when we traveled) and the canal water out back was so clear/clean, we could see the bottom as if we were looking through blue glass. There is also a very nice plaza with a well out front. The room was large for Venice standards and very comfortable.

Room Tip: Try to get a view of the canal when it is not a hot time of year (when the water can be smelly).
