Good Hotel in Venice Locanda Al Leon
Locanda Al Leon Hotel. Great place to stay, really close to St Marks Square but with a number of good value restaurants and cafes within a short walk. We stayed in the annexe, (a couple of narrow streets from the main hotel) which is newly refurbished in 2003 and with its own little breakfast bar. A charming place to stay, good value and with excellent service from the family and staff. Definetely recommended. We spent three nights there in September 2003 and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Two tips: Use the vaporetta (waterbus), its good value even if the locals "shove in" all the time! Also eat cheap rather than mid-range or expensive, its OK and you won't get a great meal or brilliant service even if you pay more.
Just got back from Venice. For the price and location there is nothing better in Venice. Friendly staff, very clean, nice size rooms.
Just perfect for staying in Venice
Found the hotel in Karen Browns guide Great place to stay whilst exploring Venice Is very close to St Marks Square Good rooms - lovely decor and very clean Breakfast - good buffet Hosts very welcoming and helpful Has the 'cosy' feeling of a small hotel Would certainly stay there again and recommend it to friends
Tiny place, but very central
We were at Locanda Al Leon for one night - found it from the Karen Brown guide (which we've found quite reliable in our travels so far). It's tucked away in a tiny, discreet lane, but very central. A stone's throw from the vaporetto, St Mark's Square and the Danieli. Though the rooms are small, very basic and with no view (the wall of the next building 3 feet away), they are clean and decent and have some venetian character, very central and good for the price. Also, in comparison to other places, we thought the breakfast was also decent - croissants, 2-3 varieties of cereal and milk/coffee. If you're only there for one day, and on a budget, this might be one of your better picks.
Venice for begineers
We just stayed there for three nights. It's very handy for St Marks and the Vaperetto's etc. Plent of restraunts nearby. Excellant room and friendly owner.. please note, he prefers payment in cash. can recomend this place
we stayed for 4 nights in november. we stayed in the room facing the grand canal. it is more expensive but in our opinion not worht the price. the grand canal is like a main street and since the open air market is just across the canal, the noise starts very early in the morning. the rooms are clean and the personnel is very polite. we did notice some mosquitos and some other flying insects. for $135 a night it was worth the price
Fantastic place to stay
Couldn't agree more with the other person who submitted a review. My wife and I stayed here for two nights in September 2001. The hotel is superbly positioned overlooking a little square. Don't panic if you can't find it at first - we arrived at dusk and I had to ask in broken Italian where the entrance was (it's just down the Calla Albanesi).
It is very much your archetypal Italian family owned business with some fantastic trattoria nearby and the Bridge of Sighs within about 25 yards of the front door. The walls in the room are silk lined and the rooms are immaculate.
You really could not do better than to stay here if you want a romantic sta in Venice.
One night in Venice
Locanda al Leon was the perfect place to stay for our one night in Venice. It is small place tucked in behind the Piazza san Marco and the Bridge of Sighs - so right in the middle of things but still quiet and not at all pretentious. The owners are very friendly, the breakfast is a little bit spartan but coffee to die for. Our room was perfect, beautifully decorated with three windows overlooking a small campo. We had a lovely night in Venice at nearly half the price of most hotels in the area. I unreservedly recommend it.

Wednesday was our third port of Mykonos. Again beautiful weather. Had a wonderful day wandering around this town's labyrinth of streets. They were apparently designed to confuse pirates in the 18th century. We can report the concept still works on tourists (we're probably not that much different anyway). Here the buildings are all whitewashed like Santorini, but roof's and doors etc are a mixture of red and different hues of blue. Also located ...

Today we said goodbye to Lago Di Garda.
We packed our bags and left our apartment in Trobole and took the scenic route towards Verona. The scenery continued to amaze.
There had been some discussion about whether to go Verona or not and in the end we went to San Pietro in Cariano. We stopped for some lunch supplies and then had a picnic in the park.
After lunch we set off for Venice. Dad took the autostrade but in a moment of complete confusion he took ...

Venice, just like in the pictures...the end
Haha, well it did kind of feel like that. Just to let you all know, we have no regrets on any places we have visited, we have been very fortunate to travel on the adventure we have but there is always going to be places that I wouldn't go back to. (This doesn't mean the rest of the family feel the same) Venice is one of them. By ...
