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.

... for us, we've stayed healthy.
The basilica, while grand, for some reason, didn't stand out to us as much as some of the other cathedrals, etc. have, but we couldn't pinpoint why. The Grand Canal divides Venice and is shaped like a backwards "S." We used our water bus pass and took the slow boat to see as much as we could from the the bottom of the "S" (St. Mark's) to the top (the bus station), and then it was on another water bus to the island of Murano, where they ...
... The locals are not happy, as it gives Venice a bad name. Our walk went for about 2 hours, and then finished off with a Gondola ride, which we all found to be a big disappointment. As we had plenty of time on our hands, we decided to go to Burano, which is famous for its lace.
We caught a taxi boat, but deliberately took the other route around to the other side of Venice up past the port. Then finally changed taxi's to make the trip to ...
... Maria del Giglio Square, where our gondola ride finished.
Walking back to our hotel we passed through some very old arcades which housed the very fashionable labels of Gucci, Burberry, Rolex, a very exclusive jeweller with an armed guard at the door and another security inside, and many other known labels. We also passed through St Marks Square.
An interesting thing we have noted is that police always seem to walk around always in 4s.
... taking a group quickly along the canal in front of our hotel explaining that within the church that is in the square opposite (San Lorenzo) contains the tomb of Marco Polo. It turns out that this is one of oldest religious sites in Venice, with the first church believed to have been built here in the 6th century. Marco Polo was buried here in 1324, however his remains were lost when the church was rebuilt in the 16th ...
Andrew discovers his origins! Today we took the train one and a half hours from Venice to the beautiful city of Verona. This is the hometown of Andrew's parents. The main attraction in Verona is the arena. It is a huge Roman arena a bit like the colosseum in Rome. Except this arena holds regular concerts; operas, musicals, singers, current and not all have appeared at the arena. We had ...
