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.

... although not as scenic as hoped and the roads were a little bit iffy.
The group arrives in Venice mid-afternoon to the realization that they can't find the Hertz papers, and also that they've only booked for only 4 people in the hotel room so they have to do some splitting up. Paul, Andrew and Amanda go to check in to their Venice hotel while Travis and Kathryn grab some lunch at a cafe.

We made a quick stop at Cimitero (cemetery island) on the way back. Some really amazing family crypts here with their own mosaic murals or stained glass displays. It seems a little weird to be interred in a stone vault above ground and not actually ...

The next day was hell, so ******* hungover, I was sitting at breakfast and my head was just spinning, baz had about half a bread roll and we made the decision, let's get another room just to be hungover in, so that is what we did, sat in bed all day hungover and did **** all, Venice was outside but we were just to **** tinned to see it.

... and window shopping. Winding through the city, we had to cross a ton of little bridges that took us over little canals where Gondolas take their passengers. Every part of Venice is gorgeous. The streets,the waterways and canals, and the incredible St. Mark's Square. That is an enormous plaza on the southeastern edge of the island. I would guess that it is about three or four football fields on length and about two or two and a half wide. It is ...
... the cafes are now closed. Fortunately for us, the Hermes hotel just around the corner had one room left that night, so we happily took it and somehow were able to sleep.
The world works in funny ways but with a positive attitude something will eventually work out! Sorry Venice for the brief time we were there but I'm glad we did it, had to see the beauty of the canals and rich history there.
In the morning we will see what Florence has to offer us, goodnight to ...
