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.

... but now has hotels. Another island has a Franciscan Monastery set up by St Francis of Assisi. Many of the islands are unoccupied and we even saw some that were not even built on. It gave us an idea of the environment before Venice was built. Venice was built by a group of people who wanted to escape from the Barbarians. By building on the Venetian moors, they were protected due to the waterways surrounding them. It was a lovely afternoon, arriving back at the hotel by ...
... I would have been interested in buying a few souvenirs but didn't buy anything at all. The problem was that the moment you stopped to look at anything a salesman would rush in. I wanted to buy some scarves and John would have liked a t-shirt but we wanted time on our own to browse and choose what we wanted. The salesmen however, were constantly in your face, insisting on showing you what they thought you ...
... it was fun. At this stage we were totally lost, we had 20minutes before we needed to meet up with the group. We started running and asking for directions, the people we asked was all tourists. After a 15minute run about and spilt coffee we found our way. We then left for the Italian restaurant. We sat down and got surved a 5course meal. We started off with veggies, potatoes and meat and followed but deep fried shrimp and little fish. We ...
... head out of the door to try and read the signs. Sometimes we saw what it was. Sometimes we didn't and just went on hoping we weren't passing it. At one stop, after dozens of people had unloaded, I stuck my head out just in time to see that it was the correct one. I leaped off the bus as the doors were shutting behind me. Hanging out in London makes you pretty good at that kind of thing. The only problem? Kristen and Elise were still on the bus. At that moment, Kristen learned ...
... this time of day. We travel past the docks where the delivery boats load their cargo. We proceed to the larger waterways where the cruise ships are docked, amazing huge, then back to the inner grand canal. We walk the streets, have coffee and croissants, get back to our place and the kids are still in bed, they like this place. We take off toward St. Marks to eventually take our Clock Tower tour. This clock in the square is about 500 years ...
