Me and my girlfriend stayed at this property for 3 nights from the 7/12/17 to the 9/12/17. I found the property on Booking.com and booked it on there as it was one of the more reasonable priced hotels. Stayed in room 111 which has a courtyard view. The room was clean and was a standard size. The heating in the room worked well in the cold conditions. The bathroom was also clean but I would say the shower was too small with a lot more space available. The breakfast was good but if you got there too late there wasn’t much left so I suggest if you want a big breakfast to get there early. The communication with the property before arriving was excellent and they emailed myself directions and tips how to get from Marco Polo airport. If I ever go back to Venice I would go back to this property.
Locanda has three major qualities: super convenient location close to everything yet remote from the crowd, elegant place with a lovely garden yet reasonable prices, and a charming little wine bar -Ossia di seppia- that just opened next door with a direct view on the canal and a great atmosphere. Venice is the city of dreams as they say...
Our first stay in Venice and the water taxi dropped us off right outside the door. It's a lovely place to stay and location while quiet is in a good place to explore all corners of Venice. Breakfast is in the restaurant next door and while your basic continental fare it sets the day up well. Room was good size and although we had no view to talk of it did its job. I'd stay here again, which must say something.
This is a guest house (locanda) rather than a full-service hotel, with a kind of faded, charming elegance that seems entirely correct for Venice. We stayed for a week in a large room overlooking a canal, with a comfortable bed, a sofa as well as chair for relaxing, a large bathroom with shower, desk, chest of drawers, and wardrobe. The AC worked very well on warm days, but there were also two windows for fresh air and a chance to watch everyday life on the canal -- work boats, gondolas, water taxis, etc. Our room was quiet, and service was generally good, and cleanliness standards high. The shower is a bit small, and woud be a tight fit for a person of size. Breakfast was well-prepare and served -- juice, your choice of coffee, rolls, croissants, yoghurt, granola, meats, cheese, and bottled water -- and kept us going through busy mornings and sometimes past lunch. During our stay breakfast was served indoors in a restaurant --"6342 Alla Corte" --that is physically connected to Locanda La Corte, although I don't believe the ownership is the same. In the evenings the restaurant serves meals that should be excellent, since it is owned by the same people who run "6342 A Le Tole," which was our favorite restaurant. (See my review.) One of the strong points in favor of Locanda La Corte is its location. It is far enough removed from the over-touristed areas of the Rialto and Piazza San Marco to eliminate the crowds and noise, but at the same time those places are easy to reach. It is also relatively easy to reach from the airport. A water taxi will take you virtually to the door, if you want to spring for one. But far cheaper, an Alilaguna boat will take you to the Fondamente Nuove stop, which serves both that service and the city's numerous vaporetto lines. The walk from Nuove to the hotel isn't long, but you will have to cross three or four bridges along the way, and each has several steps. If you're healthy and strong, no problem; if you're not, perhaps the water taxi would be better. My wife and I are in our mid-seventies and had no difficulty. In short, this is a great place to stay for a visit to Venice, and the staff will be helpful in making the most of it.
Entry to the Hotel is beautiful, lovely old beamed room with reception. Greeted within seconds of entering by a chap with a big smile who welcomed us & showed us to our room. The Hotel is quirky, old & with lots of different passage ways depending on where your room.is located - ours is through the terrace area & up some steps which makes it feel like you have your very own house to stay in. We're really surprised at how quiet it is here given we're minutes walk from the centre & 30 seconds walk to the piazza by the hospital where there are lots of beautiful restaurants to be found. The room: Traditional Venetian in style & just what we wanted. Shower room only which is fine for us as we're here for 3 nights. Great having shutters, windows, nets & curtains as provides choice depending on the temperature of the day. Air conditioning in the room is great as has own control (not a guarantee as we've found out on our travels so far) & really quiet so doesn't wake you at night. Key to front door provided on set given to you which means you can come & go as you please - again, not a given everywhere. Breakfast is buffet style & served in the adjoining restaurant. Foods include cereal & milk, bread rolls or slices with condiments, & ham, cheese & boiled eggs. Only issue for me was that the milk was out in a jug on the table & even though we went at 7.30am when it opened this was REALLY warm & put me off (especially as I'm pregnant). I should have asked for cold but felt a bit uncomfortable - I will ask tomorrow though, my own fault. Location: quite a walk from the train station but as others have remarked already, private water taxi's are available even though they're quite pricey...they're worth it. We found that there is a water taxi base just behind the hospital (under 10 mins walk, probably closer to 5mins) & this takes you to the station within 40 minutes...we'll definitely be taking this option on Saturday. Aside from this location wise we are absolutely thrilled with it! Quiet, relaxed & beautiful. Away from the hussle & bustle & the northern part of Venice which is more residential means you get much more of a Venice experience. It also means there are more 'local' rather than 'touristy' restaurants so if you're in to sustainable tourism this is your spot. We just adore this area & everything about it. Absolutely highly recommend Laconda La Corte to anyone visiting Venice, best of both worlds, easy access to everything, great staff & a really happy stay here. We'll definitely be coming back here.
Well we stayed here for 3 nights and was traveling with our friends ( 2 couples) we all like the hotel being very clean with all you need, air con in the room which worked,fridgethe shower was a bit small but worked great, safe in the room which was free. I would say the the hotel is rustic/old and we will go back. The reception staff was a Chinese man and he was great, the hotel is in a great location for places to get food and coffee.
My stay at Locanda La Corte was a dream come true for a person traveling alone. I was enchanted the moment I arrived. The previous e-mails were very informative. All employees were very generous with their concern. My room was great overlooking the beautiful courtyard and the restaurant inside was superb! The breakfast included was great and it started my day off right. The hotel is near everything and the Campo Giovanni A Paolo had many restaurants to enjoy. I will always stay here when I am in Venice. It feels like coming home. Helena Poto, Sarasota, Florida, U.S.A.
Quirky hotel within 5 minutes' walk from St. Mark's Square. Great outside courtyard in the centre of the hotel for breakfast which made a lovely feature. Also, a small area to sit at in the evening overlooking a canal with a bottle of wine.Large room which slept 3 of us comfortably. Staff really friendly and welcoming. Supermarket a short walk away in case we needed to buy anything. Arrival by water taxi is a great experience!
This is a very cool hotel to stay at. It is within easy walking distance of everything, which is convenient. This is my second time staying in Venice, and my second time staying at this hotel. I looked for a different hotel for this trip just for the sake of trying something else out, but I couldn't find anything that compared to this one, so I came back here! I have no regrets. We arrived via the train station and, since there were six of us and my mom had twisted her ankle, we opted to take a water taxi straight to the hotel instead of the vaporetti to the Fondamente Nove stop and walking from there. I believe the cab ride was 80 euros for the six of us and our luggage. The hotel is only a 10-15 minute walk to St. Mark's Square and probably about the same to the Rialto. I feel very safe walking around everywhere in Venice. I'm a 32 year old woman and I would feel comfortable walking to and from the hotel and St. Mark's alone in the dark. The hotel is very comfortable, and this was probably the most comfortable bed we had out of the four hotels we stayed in on this trip. The bed is two beds pushed together, which was what every other hotel on our trip had done, so this seems pretty typical. We were traveling with a group of six, so we had three rooms, and we made sure they were all rooms with views of the canal. We were in room 102. I will always pay the extra money for a view, because I think it's worth it, but the reality is we kept the shutters closed most of the time, so, while it's cool to have a view of the canal, you probably won't really use it much. If you leave the windows open at night, the mosquitoes get in, and it's too hot during the day to leave them open. The bed and pillows are very comfortable, and there was an extra pillow and blanket in the closet. There was a hairdryer in the bathroom. The bathroom itself is a fine size, but the shower is VERY small. We stayed in four cities and four different hotels, and three of them had a regular shower/tub combo. The other three all had pretty small showers, but this one is by far the smallest. I do remember mentioning this in my review from 2014, and it is worth mentioning again. If you are significantly overweight, this shower will be too small for you (I hope that doesn't sound mean - it's just such a small shower that I wouldn't want anyone to be surprised or have issues when they get there). I am tall and thin and I bumped into the glass several times each time I showered just shampooing my hair (shaving was a challenge!). This isn't a big deal for me, so I don't count this against the hotel. I spend very little of my time in the shower, so as long as it works, it's fine by me. Water pressure was good, temperature was easy to control. The thing that keeps me from giving this hotel a 5/5 is the breakfast. This was a pretty small breakfast spread, and breakfast was offered for the shortest period of time out of all the hotels on my trip (I think it was only open for an hour and a half). There was enough to have a light breakfast, but unless you wanted yogurt and cereal, it's not going to last you long. They also opened late one day, which wouldn't be a big deal if it opened earlier or ran longer. The restaurant next door kind of does breakfast with/for the hotel (you eat in the hotel, but you enter through the restaurant), so when I went and told the concierge the door was still locked 15 minutes after it was supposed to open he tracked down the lady in charge of breakfast and made her open the door. She claimed she forgot to unlock the door, but none of the tables were set like they normally were, and she had to sneak out and change into her work clothes. I think she was just running late. It wasn't a huge deal, we got to our stuff on time, but the breakfast scene in general was very lackluster. I'd still stay here again.
My wife and I spent 3 nights at this hotel after a Cruise around Italy, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and Sicily. The welcome at the reception was very low key although we were able to leave our luggage and do a bit of exploring. The hotel is ideally situated within walking distance of the main attractions in Venice and the public water taxis, so it was easy to visit the other islands and the Grand Canal. Breakfast was included in our package and was taken in a little period courtyard but was quite basic although the waitress was extremely friendly and helpful but very overworked,often ran out of plates, bowls etc. Our room was overlooking the canal and quite spacious, the shower was small but the water was hot.
