... with you. Italians are extremely proud of their pasta, as they should be, and any good host will proclaim THEIR dishes are the best on the block. My favorite dish so far has been gnocchi (a potato dumpling of sorts) smothered with cheese and truffle oil. Very different, but very good. The most expensive meal I've had, though, was at the Hard Rock Café in Florence. I paid 15€ for a hickory bacon BBQ burger. Completely worth it when I was ...
... building has a carved statue or painting on it. The Grand Canale is fab! Tomorrow we are getting passes to travel on Water Taxis up and down the canale. Some houses (most actually) have the entrance to the houses right on the water. So you basically imaging that there are to massive walls going up either side of the canale and in some places of the wall doors have been put there. From ...
... The main reason is most diners are tourists and most of them will never return to Venice. Therefore, pleasing them is not a priority. I also get the same impression with the shop assistant's attitudes towards tourists. It's a very short sighted view for a city that's sinking. Que Sera Sera.
I'm admitting we did a Japanese Tourist trait today. We caught the train to the Leaning Town of Pisa, took 'that photo' and jumped straight back on the train for Florence. ...
... to take to the streets of Venice again. Truly, it is a beautiful town, a little smelly at times but still beautiful. I did a spot of shopping before returning to the hotel to pack and prepare for the next league of my trip, Paris. At this point I have to say Kudos to the staff of Corte 1321. They knew I would be leaving early so they went to great pains to make sure I knew my way around the kitchen so I could have something to eat before I left. And thank god they did, but more on that ...

Came back finally just by looking for signs to the square.

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.
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.
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.
