... sometime after lunch and after a few wines we need a toilet..... the only decent toilets are in the bars...... so we stop in the next bar for a "wee" and have a drink at the same time ... quite soon down the road we have the same (bladder) problem, so we stop by the nearest bar for a "wee" and a drink ... you get it.... this becomes an exercise in futility.... known as "let's go for a wee drink!" And we are wearing these "security pouchy things" that house our passports ...
... was on their own for lunch, so we found a cute little place to eat. It is tucked into a small street and is famous for it's pizza. I ordered a margherita, and it was so delicious. Italian pizza really puts American pizza to shame. We really don't know how to make it. After lunch, we toured the Basilica in Venice. It was really interesting to see the floor of it. Thanks to the flooding of the city over all these years, the floor of the Basilica ...
... so we did a little walking around and came back at 11. 11 came and it was still closed, I paced up and down, nose to glass again and thought ill wait 5 more minutes. In the distance I saw a lady walking quickly with a guess bag, I was like this is it! She opened the door and I went in. I could have spent 100’s of dollars in this shop, amazing things, beautiful things unique to Venice GUESS, They make different things depending on the country and its ...
... did not have an issue with us. We sat down so that we could try the legendary bellini at the place where it was first invented. One look at the menu and wow! 15 euro for one bellini. I wasn’t super keen on it anymore but we still ordered two just so we could say we tried it. They were fantastically delicious and very refreshing, but so incredibly small for the amount we were paying. Luckily we did get two small fish cakes and a bowl of olives for munchies as we drank. That is one ...
... in Venice's spidery maze. I soon came upon a much larger piazza which circled around a statue of what I assume was a great artist of the past. I found another mature bench whose wooden planks were soon coming to their end and sat down for a rest. I thought about these houses and how different they were from the ones back home. Our houses are well maintained and often renovated with new appliances or other products which are more efficient and up to date. Most of our ...

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
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.
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.
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.
