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.

... talk with a local artist who painted colourful scenes showing the history of the ghetto. She also had a beautiful cat who looked just like Danny. Very tempted to go back and buy one of her paintings before we leave!!! Finished the afternoon with a veneziano caffe, yum!!! Nick's plan to tire me out with this long walk worked and I had no energy left to shop!! I'll try and make up for it tomorrow ...
... maze that it is. You go down one road then another then dead end so you go a different way and find a bridge that you think might take you to the right place. We had to use google to find St. Marks square which with all the twisting roads and canals took a while to reach. We grabbed pizza from a vendor for lunch. St. Marks square was busy. It must of been low ride because it was not under water yet. We spent lots of the afternoon looking at the ...
... br> The next day I got up late and wandered around the city in the afternoon wasting away time before a walking tour that I had signed up for the would start around 5pm. Once the walking tour started we first wandered through the Jewish ghettos of the city slowly making our way around the different islands. The guide was an Italian man and I was very surprised when he actually knew where Winnipeg was, apparently he once had a ...

... a boat docked with a wood cover on top and people were sitting on it too. The bar we chose had about 20 different kinds of bruschetta in a case at 1 euro per piece. So we picked out a bunch, got some drinks and sat next to the canal. The smoked Gouda with balsamic and a blackberry was our favorite, although they were all good. We wandered around on our way back and we think we're really going to like it here! We're here until Monday, which seems just about ...
