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.

... sat and had a game of 'I can't spy', which I think I won fair and square, despite what Emma might say...! There really isn't much to say about the journey, and I think the most exciting part was my rucksack managing to fall from the rail above and about break everyone's legs in the process...!

The San Marco Basilica is a stunning example of mosaics in action...unbelievable, really. From the intricate multi-colored marble mosaics on the floors to the glittering gold mosaics on the ceilings, St. Mark's is quite a monument to San Marco, whose body was stolen for ...
... as we were about to join the passport checking queue for the non-shenghen gates, our flight was delayed. Typical. Another hour and a half to wait. We finally left, an hour and a half late, enroute back to Gatwick. We were going to get the train back home, but there are engineering works and rail replacement. And seriously who wants to bother with that. So luckily we were picked up :) I loved Venice!! So different to anywhere else I've been - such beautiful canals and bridges, jbuildings and ...
... br> Soon I approach the lower section of Valparola pass and I am just hoping it will be open and sure enough it was.
This pass is for sure one of the greatest in the Alps. The road starts off by running along the lower section of the mighty high Dolomite rocks. Seeing these massive rock mountains is simply amazing. The sheer height of them is unbelievable and really have to be seen to be believed as a photo just does not do them justice.
The road finally twists ...
... saying no photos!! Ended up joining everyone else - felt bad but.......got some nice photos! Went down stairs and through The Basilica - it is very impressive! Headed off for some lunch - yikes it was the most expensive meal I have had on the trip - over €50 but I guess it was a treat or at least that is what I am telling myself to justify it. After lunch I wanted to go to Ca' Rezzonico. It is the only remaining house in ...
