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 went for an organised walking tour of Venice this morning. We met the guide at San Marco Piazza and visited the Cathedral after a quick talk on Venice's history. Venice was located in a malaria ridden swamp to fend off the Huns and barbarians who continuously tried to invade in the 5th-8th centuries. The entry to Venice was guarded using a bell tower and later the telescope designed by Galileo. Venice monopolised the sea routes and trade until the 1300's. In 1499 Venice ...
... many other things listed on websites Brittany found. There was a #1 restaurant listed in Brittany's guidebook for the best place to go to eat in this area of Venice and so yesterday, we set out to find it. However, after several hours of walking and trying to find the right streets, we gave up and went elsewhere for dinner. We had looked the address and walking route up on Google maps prior to going, but what these maps don't have are all the alleys ...
... a chance to go on a real gondola ride! Our gondolier was very friendly and pointed out lots of sites along the way, especially the Bridge of Sighs, where prisoners walked over the river from the prison to their execution, and had one last look at the sunlight. It was a bit ominous, but strangely also romantic, as it is said that if you kiss each other whilst under the bridge then your love will last forever! The gondola ride was wonderful - we got ...
... not as dodgy as I'd initially thought, actually ended up being A-OK), via a wee 'local' on the corner for a sneaky half pint of beer and a few tapas, stuffed courgette, pinwheel. Kids had ..... wait for it ..... Ice-cream. Oh my, back to holidays again we are, in nice weather in Europe. The weather's so mild, although we stick out like dog's bollocks in shorts and tees when everyone else is rugged up in trousers (pants means undies, must stop calling them pants), ...
... apparently don't think too much of the All Blacks and the City of Paris we made our way towards the sea. In the increasing heat of the day we walked the entire length of the waterfront enjoying the sea air. Halfway along, we even spied the super-yacht that we had seen several times in port in Croatia a week earlier. Not a bad way to travel, we decided. By half twelve we met at the dock to board our boat tour of the Grand Canal. Making our way through the ...
