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.

... Christina who gave our small group a great lesson in Venetian history, followed by a very descriptive guided walk through St. Mark's square and finally though St. Mark's cathedral. The Eastern architectural and artistic influence in this place of Christendom was really striking. We also heard a great story about how some merchants from Venice stole the body of St. Mark from Constantinople by hiding it in a basket covered with pork, which the Muslim ...
... I've become as bad as a Japanese tourist. After gazing over Venice, it's islands, canals & the sea we line up for entrance into St Mark's Basilica. After about half an hour I get in but the chain gets put across & Grant is stuck outside. I wander into the church & wait for him. All the girls with bare legs are given scarfs to put around their waists. I have long shorts on but must be ok because I don't get stopped. The domed ceilings are covered ...
... and backpacks also have to be included in the carry-on luggage. This is a huge opportunity for me to learn to "travel light" !!! Yes, I am learning, but kicking and screaming all the way (in a quiet sort of way !) !!!!!! Arrive at airport and told that we can place all our hand luggage in the hold, at no extra charge (everything on these cheapie flights usually gets charged...I think a trip to the toilet costs, and a seat that you can actually sit in ...
We had a leisurely start to the day, our bags had to be out to be collected by the porter by 9.30am. Our private water taxi was collecting us at 10.25 for our transfer to the airport. Glenys' nephew was collecting her at 9.30 so we had a sad farewell, a new chapter for both of us in our travels for the next week. Glenys is doing more of Italy and I am off to Paris. We also had to bid farewell to Sam and Lisa, we have had lots of fun and ...
... it back to the hotel in one piece and ended up sleeping in the middle of Ali and Jesse. Austria - what a beautiful beautiful country! The scenery when we were driving through Austria was incredible!! The massive mountains, the houses on top of the mountains, the greenery. It's hard to explain how beautiful the place really is. But WOW! We were doing whitewater rafting here today it was awesome! We got our of the bus and heard these massive bangs, turned out it was ...
