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.

... around in a circle and eventually caught a Vaparetto back to the train station. From here we walked past the hotel where Steve and Donna stayed two years ago. We also went to the same restaurant they visited two years ago. We all had fresh pasta. Very nice. From there it was off to get ice cream. Russ ordered a double scoop and quickly changed his mind when he say the size of the scoop. Stopped off and bought a bottle of Lemonchello and that was our night cap. So ends night one in ...
... and many of them are peeing on the walls and the odd one ******** in the middle of the walkways. There is no grass anywhere, and we think these dogs probably live in apartments, and they all come out to walk at the end of the day, and around the lanes/roads is the only place to walk them. There also is a lot of litter around, and people seem to throw it out of the boats without thinking of the impact.
Time for bed now.
... We walked around, grabbed some gelato, and found a spot to sit on the waterfront. After lugging our giant backpacks around(officially a semi backpacker proud moment), we desperately needed to drop them for awhile and relax while taking in the beautiful scenery. We did not do much our first day, there was no agenda. We just explored, shopped a little, took pictures, and soaked it all up.
Our hotel was on one of the surrounding islands, Lido. We ...
... to go to the Doges Palace as by now it was late afternoon and quite empty of tourist groups and we could enjoy it at our leisure. We learned so much about the history of Venice and as a bonus we got to walk through the bridge of sighs which according to legend, prisoners, as they were being led from the Doges palace after being sentenced, sighed one last time as they crossed the bridge into prison. All in all a very successful if somewhat damp ...
... I usually take photos with my phone of where I park in Carindale, but I forgot to here.
We plan to go back to the little jewellery shop this evening, we should get there by 7:00 surely. At about 3.00pm it is still hot so chill out at home and wait till about 5.00pm. I remember the name of the canal near the shop started with a T and had double T in the middle. I found it on the map, Stefano doesn't think its right as it is the name of the canal, not ...
