Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Locanda Gaffaro Venice
We stayed here in March and loved it! Good location and we liked the small size. Probably the most elegent hotel we've used. Beautiful marble and fabric covered walls. Helpful staff. Would stay here again.
Nice Location Very Friendly Staff Ok Cleanliness
This hotel was in a good location, central to almost everything. It is located in a very cute area which is great for leisurely strolls. The staff was very very friendly. This is a great value, for this type of accommodation in Venice. The only complaint I have is that the sheets were not changed/cleaned during our 4 night stay and the bathroom floors were not cleaned, not even swept. But this is not unusual for hotels in Italy. Breakfast was a croissant (I liked, boyfriend did not) a piece of toast and another type of toast which was very good, along with your choice of beverage and different assortments of jams. Typical Italian breakfast!
You will love this small hotel
We chose Locanda Gaffaro for our stay in Venice, as a result of the great reviews we saw on this web page. I can honestly say that our 4-night stay at the hotel was more than wonderful, it is located in a very nice quite area. The personnel went out of their way to make our stay a magnificent one. We will definitely go back to this hotel in our next trip to Venice.
Loved the Locanda Gaffaro
I was pleasantly surprised when my family and I stayed at the Locanda Gaffaro this month. Although this was a small hotel (10 rooms), the owners made me feel at home and served a nice breakfast in their courtyard. The hotel was located about 5 minutes walking distance from the Piazzale Roma and you could walk to San Marco Square in 20 minutes. The price for the room was reasonable based on my research.
Great location, next to bus station. Loking for a quite place next to a bridge and cafes this is the place to go. Not too far from the Jewish Gehtto, only about 8 minute walk. nice rooms for Venice hotels.
A little gem
Locanda Gaffaro is a little gem of a hotel a few minutes walk from the main bus station (Piazzale Roma) but away from the tourist crush. It is excellent value for money. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and well decorated. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast is served in a courtyard or in your room: our family room had a balcony. Excellent room-service wine costs just six Euros! We had a most enjoyable three-day stay in August and will definitely return to Locanda Gaffaro when we next visit Venice.
Great Hotel/Great Price
We stayed at Locanda Gaffaro for 2 nights. We were very impressed with the wonderful service and very pleasant host. In addition, the room was charming, and the location fantastic. Although it was not in the center of the touristy part of Venice, it gave us a great opportunity to walk and explore all of this charming city. Overall, our stay was extremely pleasant. We recommend this B&B very highly.
A Great Spot in Venice
A good sized, comfortable room with a skylight, an unbelievably low price, a short walk from the train station and from a water-bus stop, this was a great place to stay in Venice. Service was friendly and helpful, and the location is away from the beaten path but filled with great spots to eat.

... is not the place to live if you are prone to sea-sickness. Some of the water in the canals can get quite choppy just from all the boat traffic. Getting about is fairly easy, once you figure out the system of diagrams and numbers. One of the water busses that we rode in, was having engine problems, and stalled each time we came to a "bus" stop. It made for some interesting hard landings.

This morning we took a boat to one of the islands to a Murano glass factory where they demonstrated the art of blowing glass and we saw some beautiful glass products. It was amazing to see how quickly the artist turned a lump of hot glass into a beautiful piece of art such as a vase or a glass figurine. Wandering through the showroom it felt more like an art gallery than a store. Next we headed down to Piazza San Marco it ...
... Chrissie go to the toilets, they all start making out and comparing tits, Ganzer included, he loses that competition. Later on Hannah asks Michael if he'd like another viewing, this time Mel goes with them, inside the toilets they're all kissing and comparing boobs again, which is apparently a common thing? He seems like he is locked in for a threesome here, suggesting to the girls they get out of the bar straight to room 192. On the way out Hannah stops though, she gets cold ...

Venice has amazing water public transit system and we were able to stumble across our correct stop (rather than the one we were suggested at the airport)...that could have made for A very long afternoon. The streets were packed and busy. We learned a few days later that about 70% of The Venice population, on any given day, is tourists. I don't think we were really ready for ...
