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.

... is carnival masks, and one of the most famous mask makers is nearby – Zago e Molin, where the owner makes all the masks for their shop and heaps of the others. They are so beautiful but quite fragile looking so not sure if they'd survive a trip home. The other 'thing' is glass but I'm hoping we get a visit to the nearby island of Murano, so I'm not buying any around here. We hadn't had any lunch so we were easily enticed into a restaurant by ...

The trip took just over an hour, as there were many pick ups and drop offs, but we got to Como station with plenty of time to spare. More importantly I made it to the next WC, and for your info, they were first class!
Our train to Milan arrived on time (and I must say, everything in Italy we have been on, runs on time). Our journey to Milan, was ...
... called "the Lost Bridge" and watch the lost peeps wander over the bridge. We enjoyed watching the Gondolas pass by and discovered the Bridge of Sighs as we looked out toward the Laguna. Eventually, we see the three of them off in the distance and can tell by the look on their faces they have found the hotel but are trying to look like they didn't. Sophie is trailing behind, hiding behind them as if they lost her along the way. Turns ...
Start of a new day and still raining. We are well and truley over this rain. We meet for breakfast at 8.00 am. Breakfast was very good with scrambled eggs and bacon on the menu. Back to the rooms and get ready for a big day. We get some directions from our hotel clerk and set off for Vaparetto to get to Marino Island where they make all the glass products. We spend a few hours walking around ...
... 1631 and ended 1687. The church was built because of the plague, as it was a gift to Mary for deliverance from pestilence. Although the location is amazing, the inside is rather blah. As the symbol of health, it's isn't ornate. It's very clean, with simply marble and stone. However the small chapel does have flat screens! For the most part, I plan things I want to see ... But I really don't for Venice. Because of this, I decided to ...
