Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda Ca' del Brocchi Venice
Very friendly hotel
A gorgeous little hotel, well located & with a team of very friendly staff. I've stayed in a few hotels in Venice & this one is definitely one of the best value hotels. I will definitely return to this hotel.
Great rooms, quiet location
This charming hotel is located about a 5 minute walk from the Accademia Bridge and Vaperetto stop. GET DIRECTIONS BEFORE YOU GO! We spent an inordinate amount of time looking for the place and even the locals don't know where it is. Once you find it though you be pleasently surprised. The rooms are decorated in old traditional Venitian wall coverings with ornate sconces and what looked like Murano glass chandeliers. Each room has a minibar, TV (no CNN International though), armoire and ours had a fireplace (I don't know if all the rooms do).
The rooms are spacious enough. And the bathroom includes a heated towel rack, sink, toilet, bidet, and jacuzzi shower where you can set it to traditional shower or have the sprays come at you from the sides. The staff was very friendly but not so fluent in English.
The complimentary breakfast was prepackaged croissants (plain or cherry), yogurt and rolls. Passable but nothing to write home about.
The hotel is located in a quiet area of Venice but still a short walk to the busier spots. I highly recommend this place and would stay there again.
We loved this charming small hotel (just 7 rooms) tucked away on a quiet street in Venice. It was just a 5 minute walk to the Accademia Bridge - convenient to everything. The Dorsodoro location was perfect for us. Our room was quite large by European standards with an updated and beautiful bathroom. We even had a small balcony. The decor was elegant. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely return.

... We then explored some more. We opted for a light and early supper, choosing a restaurant that said it was Greek. It wasn't, but we had some fine spaghetti Bolognese (with meat sauce.) It was then time to meet the group in the piazza de San Marco. We walked north a ways and boarded gondolas--it took five. One also carried a guitar player and a tenor. Off we went as dark descended--it was relaxing and lovely, gliding beneath bridges and below the various buildings. We sailed out ...

This morning we got ready packed and said a sad goodbye to Giorgio, Cristina and Serena. Yes I did cry a little and they gave us home made jam – apricot and myrtle berries. It feels like we were leaving good friends. The drive to Venice was very busy. Loads of trucks, hold ups due to 'men at work' etc. Craig drove in his usual excellent, accomplished manner and we made it to ...
... flooding, a phenomenon that rarely occurs in the summer months as compared with the winter months when it is commonplace. The water in the piazza provided a wonderful photographic opportunity with the grand buildings and lights reflecting in the water.
... they haven't all been beautiful. Lobster entree, Beef Wellington for main, I rarely have dessert, can't fit it in. Will be putting on enough weight as it is. Off to show @ 8.30 - Called (It takes 2) Great singing. On way back to cabin stopped at the King's Blues Club - great music - pity didn't have someone to dance with . Looking forward to tomorrow, sounds like a nice ...
... just like a regular city bus. Took quite some time to get back to the ship. There, I laid out on the deck, and waited for Michelle to arrive.
I had just gone back to the room when Michelle came in. She had taken the train from Milan, and walked from the train station to the ship. At first they told her she was not on the list to board the ship – yikes! But eventually they let her board. We went up to the deck and did a bit of relaxing and lunch in the sun. It was ...
