Great hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. They were willing to help book tours and give advice on where to eat. Would definitely stay here again.

Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda Art Deco Venice
Locanda Art Deco
Our family of 4 stayed at the Locanda Art Deco for 3 nights in early March, 2004. After we found the hotel (it was dark when we arrived...and we got lost), we loved it. Although the room we had (Room S) was the smallest we had in 3 cities, it was sufficient for us. We had a large bed (actually 2 twins), and 2 additional twin beds in the room. There was plenty of space. The bathroom was large and well-equipped.
The breakfast area was small, and we had to wait 2 of the days for others to finish for the 4 of us to have space to eat. The breakfast was the least generous of the 3 hotels we stayed at on our trip...a roll and a croissant per person. There was cereal and beverages available. No yogurt; no eggs. The breakfast was not available until 8 a.m. which was too late for us on the day we had to leave to catch our plane home.
The hotel was well-located. It is easier to find for the first time from the Accademia water bus stop than from the S Angelo stop...just across the bridge, turn right at the church, and cross the piazza...turning left at the street on the far side of the piazza.
One drawback to our room was that there is a patio belonging to another establishment that was directly below one of the windows. The patrons of the bar (or whatever it was) came out onto the patio and talked (loudly) and yelled for their teams on TV until almost midnight each night. Luckily for us, we could go to sleep anyway.
Overall, we would stay at Locanda Art Deco again.
A Really Nice Small Hotel
This is a great hotel - small just 10 rooms, but ours was a good size.
Good decor, really helpful and friendly staff and for Venice reasonable prices. . The breakfast area is small and you may have to wait if too many people come at the same time, but generally not for long.
The position is excellent just off the bustling Campo San Stefano and close to the Accademia Bridge and about a 10 minute walk to St. Marks.
There are many art galleries and antique shops close by and the Fenice is about 5-10 minutes.
Excellent value, convenient location, a bit off the main drag (a good thing), next to an Internet cafe, very very nice staff. We'd stay there again.
I loved Art Deco staff
Beautifull place, nic room and friendly staff.
A true gem, I almost hate to share
I discovered this little gem when my husband and I were taking a trip to Italy last year. I scoured and scoured various website "travel talk" forums and found one person who mentioned this new little boutique hotel. It intrigued me, so I emailed Judith, the owner and she replied promptly. We were soon emailing back and forth, and she was super helpful. I knew this was the place for us, and I was NOT disappointed. It is in a very convenient location, off a small campo, very near the Accademia bridge and vaporetto stop. No schlepping luggage!! The rooms are very clean and spacious, with a wonderful en suite bathroom. The decor is lovely. Breakfast was included, and it was perfectly fine. Our room was quiet and cool, and off the frenzied tourist path. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Oh, did I mention the price was super? The ONLY complaint I have is that a piece of the linolium was warped on the floor - but big deal! I just hope the prices don't go sky-high as more people find out about this hotel.
Art Deco Locanda
locanda art deco far surpassed my expectations. the room was new, clean, and quite spacious. even more amazing thought is how helpful the hotel staff had been to us, especially the co-owner juliet. i had fallen ill from exhaustion while in venice and the hotel staff had been extremely helpful.

... gondola can cost anywhere up to €40,000 but as each gondolier owns his own, the cost will vary on how individualist he wants his "outfitted". Our gondola was named Francesca, after the gondolier's grandmother The main "tourist season" lasts from approx May to October, (depending on the weather) with another rush at Xmas & in Feb when the Carnivale is on. Each gondola company has its own designated area that they can work in. Our gondolier took us through the ...
... music had bypassed Venice, as I had listened to Five and Guns and Roses whilst I was eating. He rushed into the back and put a new song on and said "this is 6 months old". Apparently it was an english song but nothing I had heard of. He said they were obsessed about it in Italy. I commented about how it was as if the place was 15 to 20 years behind the times and he did agree that it was a bit weird.
I was really lucky going back to the airport as I ...
... cafe down the street, before catching the bus into Venice again, where we headed to San Marco's Basilica. It was absolutely beautiful. There was a lot of gold everywhere. I was very much in awe, apart from all the extremely rude tourists who were not obeying the rules. I am not sure if it's because I'm an accountant and my job is based on rules, and thus I believe they should be followed or if it's because I am Catholic ...
... as well as a good look at the sea surrounding the island. It was unfortunately quite foggy during our stay in Venice so we couldn't see nearly as far as some days, but it was still a fantastic (and cold) way to see Venice.
After the Piazza, we (for some unknown reason) decided we had enough with maps and put it away for a good two hours. During that time, we wandered aimlessly around with no particular direction. During ...
... to the square-- no tourists and all the shops were closed. This all changed the second we got near the square. The tourists started coming in on the bridges from every direction in giant hordes with their huge cameras and ridiculous hats.
We beat the crowds by about 5 minutes, so we were able to take some nice pictures and commandeer a bench to eat our picnic-- hard boiled eggs, bread, and cheese. We probably eat this combination ...
