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.

Must say again.... Trains over here are really good! Forgot to mention that they're filming Dan Brown's latest novel "Inferno" here - alas I didn't catch Tom Hanks.... Also filmed in Istanbul and Florence. Train station in Venice was nowhere near our hotel so caught a water taxi.... Not cheap sunshine! But we ...
VENICE, the heart of northern Italy and the island home to intertwining waterways posing as roads! Yes it's amazing, yes it's unique and YES it's full of tourists!!! If you can spare two seconds from my transfixing rhetoric you'll notice the image below shows the real touristic side to Venice. This image is repeated all over the city and its for this reason alone I decided to spend less time here. Instead of being the typical traveler, sight-seeing the city attractions and ...
... we are - disconnected from the sisters; disconnected from our driver and no phone credit. Survival instincts kick in and off we set to find a shop selling phone cards. Onto the People Mover, into St Roma Square and into the Tobacco shop! Credit sorted and a call to the girls. Yes, they did miss the stop! The older sister "denies" hearing me say " the next stop is ours and the little sister ...
... there still. We are 3 kinds of amazing pizza, a great welcome to Venice food.
On to a long walk exploring the streets until we met our walking tour at 4:45. Our guide walked us through Venice until 8:30 p.m. and showed us many sights we could not have seen on our own. For example, the Jewish Ghetto, the oldest synagogue in Venice, and the first Jewish pawn shop and bank in Venice (one of the only occupations ...
... some lunch and went back to the hotel to dry out for a while.
We had dinner beside the Grand Canal in Venice tonight. It was raining still, but it was a wonderful way to finish off Venice. We were having dinner and the gondola drivers were trying to bucket out the water from their boats. It was kinda funny to watch as one of the drivers just scooped up water from his boat and threw it in the one next door. I don't know if it was on purpose or not but it was ...
