3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Pros: Great location, nice people, clean Cons: outdated, odd layout, breakfast is odd (very cramped with rooms right next to it) , odd room (a desk with 2 chairs) It was ok, nice and cheap but I wouldn't visit again

Hard to find so will add directions later. The breakfast room is small but food is good. Bathroom is small and it’s far to hot with no way to turn down the temperature. Hard bed and hard pillows, I’m used to memory foam. Staff lovely and very helpful, it’s a smashing location and the prices are low, you get what you pay for.

This place was Not easy to find, but finally it was soooo close to piazza San Marco. Great location for everyone looking for excursions. Room is big enough. Bathroom with shower. Shower has to be explained by housekeeping.... so you won't waste time in turning all buttons.... the breakfast is served from 8.00-10.00 proper, maybe an addition of fresh fruits would make it more special. The sitting might be very tight, if crowded, if just few people eating good space. Typical venetian house, so don't expect the Sight to be over the canal. It might be possible, But Not a must. Our window was showing somewhere between walls. Reception very friendly and helpful. Ask any question, they will be right by yourside. We enjoyed our stay very much

Stayed here for 2 nights The floor was not carpeted as shown on the photos above, toilet was so tiny and there is a strong smell of chlorine. Everything looks very old and outdated however on the bright side the receptionist was kind and friendly. Sorry to say this but there are better hotels in the city that is around the same price.

We had booked 2 rooms for one night before or holiday in the Dolomites. One of the people in our party arrived first and wanted to go to her room but the clerk was not able to find the room key. She went into the other room. She made repeated efforts to get access to her room but after waiting over 4 hours she left and booked another hotel just a few meters away. Hotel Locanda is refusing to refund our money - we are very upset.

Good – great location. Friendly and helpful manager. The breakfast room was a little cramped but the food was ok. The family room was also a little tight for 4 people and the ‘put you up’ bed used by our children was apparently rather uncomfortable.

The hotel is in a really good location, in a quiet, typical part of Venice on a small canal but close enough to walk in 10 minutes to Rialto, St Marks and the seafront. Decor is nice for the price, as is breakfast. The aircon was great, as it was the middle of an intense heatwave so we really needed that. Bathrooms are small but perfectly functional.

Slept here only for one night, we were by the way and decided to stop for a night in this wonderful city. The price was very good, other places we tried to ask were too expensive for us. We didn't had breakfast, we went out very early, so I cannot describe it. Rooms are ok. Venezia will be alwais my favourite city ever!

We stayed here in May 2017 for two nights. Would recommend this hotel for anyone who's looking for a hotel that's reasonably priced considering the location, it is close to the main square, a 5 minute walk. The bedrooms & breakfast are basic but as you don't spend much time in the room it is manageable. However, the main let down in this hotel is there is no tea/coffee making facilities in your room or in the lobby. It is only available to you at breakfast, we found this to be an inconvenience as everywhere else is very expensive in the main square. Most of the staff are friendly, a very kind gentleman helped us with our booking of our train to Florence which was a massive help. Would recommend that you bring your own hairdryer as the one in the bathroom is very poor. And don't forget that you need to pay your city tax on checkout which the staff ask you for & supply a receipt.

We checked into Hotel Locanda Canal after a long day in Murano. The desk clerk was polite. As we walked to the room, we noticed the dinginess of the common areas. The room was small, dark and hot. The hair dyer and wall sconces were hanging off the wall, old worn linens, missing pillow cases, etc. The wifi would not work. Then, we noticed food and dirty dishes under the wardrobe. When we made the clerk aware of this, he quickly picked it up and apologized for the maids "being so bad". We decided to leave and asked for a refund. He said we needed to talk to the owner, who was not on site. We disputed this charge on our credit card. The hotel lied and said we had "abandoned" the hotel without notification. Given that my husband and the clerk were almost yelling at each other, I find it hard to believe anyone would question our departure. Upon arriving home, we discoved that many of the positive reviews online were of Locand Hotel Vivaldi. Definitely, not this dump!!! Caveat Emptor!!
