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.

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.

We packed up our stuff and went out for breakfast: pistachio brioche, world's best pastry. We did some more exploring but a lot of places were closed for Sunday morning. There were a few open clothing stores and we spent some time looking at warmer clothes because it had got fairly cool. It was time to check out of Hotel Centrale. It had been great staying in the centre of town and being able to have a rest whenever we felt like. It was also a nice change having ...
... happy mother and father, proud grandparents, one great-grandmother, and several aunts uncles all gathered to enjoy this special occasion. Families the world over are not really so different, we all welcome each new member with love, pride and many good wishes. Sheila and Steve have been to Venice before and they made sure we went to San Marco to see the square. It brought back memories of our trip to Santiago de Compostello in Spain. The architecture ...
... outside though and we wanted to check it out as we had a pass that allowed us to take unlimited vaporetto rides in 48 hours. The trip probably took the best part of 45 min finally ending up on the island of Lido. Now this island holds many hotels and is sort of an upmarket area about a kilometre and a half from Venice proper. Pamela and I stayed on the vaporetto thinking that it would just complete its circuit and start again. We were wrong. We got kicked off at that point and ...
... opulent council chambers are connected to the prisons by a famous bridge, The Bridge of Sighs. So called because it is said that the criminals could look out through the windows as they crossed the bridge and would sigh as they took their last look of Venice before execution. It is also said that if lovers kiss under the bridge at sunset, their love would be everlasting. We met a street artist, who ...
... but my innate sense of direct prevents me and I ended up exactly where I wanted to be. I wanted to find a cheap pizza place recommended on trip advisor and found it with no difficulty. So I had a slice of pizza and ice cream for lunch before going back over the bridge to my hotel for an afternoon nap. It was pretty hot by this point so getting out of the sun was needed for my pale and pastiness. I was rudely awoken from my nap by a french tour group sat in the courtyard below ...
