Travel Blogs from Venice
This day was pretty much a bus day. We had so much travelling to do that aside from a few stops in a few towns, it was all bus. The towns we stopped in were Innsbruck, Austria and a town on the south of Lake Garda, Sirmione, Italy.
Innsbruck seemed nice but it was just a lunch stop with a ...
... beer and snacks. Afterwards we walked for a few hours just getting lost and away from the crowds. I loved this - we would be entirely by ourselves in these narrow little streets weaving around and seeing how people live. We had amazing gelato and saw some incredible blown glass artwork. This was followed by beer and snacks lol! A little more walking and we had managed to lose 8 hours of time and I couldn't feel my feet. We took our bus back to our hotel for a ...
... we did was our day trip to Xátiva. This town was about a ˝ hour train ride from Valencia and the main attraction was the Castle dating back to the 11th century. Much of the wall is still fairly intact and we spent the afternoon wandering around different parts of the wall taking some great photos. It was a hike to get up to the castle but luckily a local Café owner was happy to drive us up there in three groups- for a ...
... stores. A favourite of Milly and mine was a pyjama shop full of very cute pyjamas.
We walked around the square. The boys were keen to feed the pigeons which caused me to run and squeal. It was not a good idea to give the boys some crumbs to feed them with whilst standing near the pigeons. Safely away we walked to the water’s edge and found the bridge of sighs. Next stop was coffee and hot chocolate. We were enjoying good coffee again. Josh decided ...
... wanted to try a Peach Bellini, and Alex needed WiFi so after searching for what seemed like forever we found a little cafe that had both. The Bellinis were delicious!! We also got to check our phones, which was good! Alex and I got into a little argument with the waitress there who was giving us a very hard time about trying to figure out how much change we both needed- so that was not good and I will not be going back there again! Then we went over to Harry's Bar (where ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda Sant'Agostin Venice
Charming & Great Location
Stayed here for 3 nights very recently. It's newly renovated. Quaint mix of old charm with fresh light colors. Our room was surprisingly spacious and elegantly decorated, with a large, modern and well-appointed bathroom. The location is ideal, a short walk to the Rialto bridge and the station, so you have the city at your feet. Staff extremely courteous and helpful. I highly recomend it.
A great hotel in the perfect location. The room was very comfortable and had a wonderful canal view. Staff were incredibly nice and helpful.
They gave us advice on restaurants where the food was great, prices were OK and tourists were for the most part non-existent (imagine that it Venice). Best of all was the hotel location, near enough to everything, but off the beaten path. We were there for three nights and we highly recommend it. One of the best hotel stays we've had anywhere.
Perfect Hospitality in Venice
We should like to heartily recommend the Locanda Sant'Agostin. We were spending a few days on a city-break and really appreciated the warm welcome, helpfulness and reliability of all the staff . The comfort and cleanliness of the bedroom and all public areas was second-to-none.
Finally, the location of the hotel meant very easy access to all areas of interest in the city.
A great place to stay
We just returned from a four nights stay at the Locanda Sant'Agostin.
The location is ideal, within easy walking distance to everything, and the price is right. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating.
They speak fluent English and will help with directions, suggestions, restaurants and concerts. The breakfast was good and convenient. You get coffee or tea, juice, bread and croissants. Our room had the charm of an old hotel (old Murano ceilings, period furniture, parquet floor ) and contained all of the necessary amenities. This hotel is great if you are looking for a welcoming, clean, affordable and centrally located hotel in the historical centre of Venice.
Great Small Hotel
We really enjoyed our stay. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, we were given the names of excellent and reasonably priced restaurants in the immediate area. Our room was one of the most beautiful I have ever stayed in ( with a marble bathroom!). We will certainly go back to Locanda Sant'Agostin on our next trip to Venice.
I stayed 6 nights and the interior decoration is so moving! Especially, the furnitures and the room lights made with Venezian glass are very beautiful. The hotel-owner is so kindly and helpful. However, they cleaned out my room once a coulple of days. Furthermore, they sent my fax message to the wrong number. If your stay is short, Locanda Sant'agostin would be ok, but in case of long stay, I would not reccomend it.
Loved the place!
We spent 2 nights at this hotel in October 2003 and would definately stay there again. The location was close enough to access main attractions and far enough away to provide a peaceful and ambiant atmosphere away from the more heavily trafficked tourist areas. We were able to walk from the train station and enjoyed the peacful streets and beautiful squares and canals along the way. Our room was large and had a sofa that could be made into a bed as well as the very comfortable large bed. The bathroom was spacious as well and had a partial shower door, something uncommon in European hotels but extremely helpful. The large windows have exterior shutters as well as 2 layers of glass windows and interior shutters, keeping the room very quiet. The owners were friendly and helpful and recommended a very good place to eat nearby where we had 2 excellent but not expensive dinners. The breakfast was traditional European continental (no hot foods) and quite adequate, served in a lovely setting. The reception area is one floor above ground level so there is one flight of stairs. Overall we were extremely satisfied.
Perfect location, excellent accommodation
We stayed at the Locanda Sant Agostin for two nights in July. We have been to Venice many times before and this time decided to stay well away from St Marks square. We were almost in the middle of the island and within walking distance of all the sights. Our room, which was beautifully decorated with a marble bathroom, was at the front overlooking a small canal and square where the locals gathered in the bar so a great atmosphere. Very helpful host so we ate well but not expensively. If you want to see some of the "real" Venice this is the place.
My best stay in Venice ever. Excellent hotel which I would certainly recommend to family or friends travelling to Venice. Easy to find if you use a map; this is a stylish and classical hotel with wonderfully helpful and charming staff. The location of the hotel is great; about 10 minutes walk from Rialto Bridge and then another 10 minutes to St.
Mark's Square. The hotel is near to several bars and restaurants and is close to numerous charming squares and sights of interest. The distance from St. Mark's Sq. meant that it was never as busy around the hotel which was very nice! Our room was at the front of the hotel but the double glazing ensured absolute quiet, and the air conditioning kept us cool. I would definitely say we got value for money as the hotel was very well presented yet considerably cheaper than hotels around St.
Marks Sq. which didn't look half as nice when we checked them out during our stay. All I can say is staying at the Locanda Sant'Agostin was a brilliant choice, and I would stay again next time we go to Venice.
Very nice hotel!Stayed there for 2 nights in a well furnished big room with canal-vieuw,lovely bathroom and excellent ,large bed!The hotel-keeper was extremely helpfull and kind.
