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.

... gee, Italy's economy is doing it tough at the moment and it has been five years! We didn't begrudge the €120 for forty five minutes cruising the canals of Venice. Our gondolier gave us a history lesson as we past each significant building. Marco Polo was born in Venice and I know the exact house, it's still there. Casanova lived for eight years in Venice. The building bears his initials.
This is morning we attended Eucharist at St. George's. It is ...
... display model and sure enough that plink plonk melodic sound so familiar to these type of musical contraptions started with that same old Italian favourite traditional ditty from all those years ago: <i>‘Tulips from Amsterdam!!’</i> <i></i> Still more minor bridges and canals to cross. Standing on one of these bridges we heard the distant and very distinct sound of a guitar and melodic singing. ‘<i>o’ sole ...
... to see my passport and then pay an entrance fee of 10 euro. No way am I paying them to have the privilege to taking my money, just seems wrong.
Coming into Venice, I recall many movies where there was the big boat chase around the canals. I am hoping to see one of these, but Wendy tells me you cannot believe everything in movies, bugger.
first meal in Italy was bruschetta and lasagna. Just had to do it.pasta tomorrow, and pizza the next night.
Train down to Venice. Leaving Feltre the train followed the valley floor, usually adjacent to the river, and where there was no land to spare, through tunnels. Once out of the mountains, passing farmland, where the predominant crop was corn, corn and corn. The occasional vineyard, some potatoes and in private gardens tomatoes, pumpkin and beans.
At Ferrovia San Lucia, the train terminal ...
... we leave Venice for two days at sea before arriving in Athens. Looking forward to a relax. As I write this the boys are playing indoor football with other kids. Haven't seen then in an hour so hopefully mum and dad will get the rest they need :-) Internet will be dodgy over the next 12 days of the cruise as we will be reliant on local port cafés. So relax if you don't receive anything, I assure you we haven't gone the same way as the ...
