Great Hotel Location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 8, 2008

November 2001: Our room, #5, was very large with twin beds put together, sitting area with a small round table and 2 chairs in the center, a hugh glass chandelier above the table, a decent size bathroom with toilet, bidet, sink, tiny shower with doors; hair dryer; ample storage space, and an armoire. The room has a small side canal view. The rooms facing the grand canal, with better views, are more expensive.

The floor was marble, probably the original marble when the building was built.

This hotel was in a great location, ugly entrance, (to the right the stairs) just a 5 minute walk from the Ca d' Oro stop and a little further to the Rialto bridge. Next to the hotel is an internet cafe, which charges 5.000L for 15 minutes.

Directions: Catch the public boat no.1 and get off at the Ca' d'Oro stop. From the landing stage go to the right on Strada Nuova until the first bridge, cross it and turn right again.

Lovely little Locanda Logisticaly Located

That's a mouthfull.... The important thing to remember is that it's a Locanda- Not quite a hotel but not a B&B really.

Unique Quality: Really nice little B&B type establishment.The owners couldn't heve been nicer.Probably the least expensive room with a view of the grand canal you'll be able to find.Tucked away in a quiet courtyard the entrance is a bit hard to find the first time.It sits near the piaza santo Apostoli -About a ten minute walk to the Rialto bridge.

Beware ! Con-job of tourists !

Found it difficult to find a suitable hotel for our dates ! Panicked a little and decided to book Leon Bianco ! Charged 165 euro per night for a Junior Suite.
We stayed in Room 9, just inside the front door and beside the reception desk. Not a good choice, as the staff spent 2 hours chattering
Breakfast was served in the room. Breakfast was continential, tea/coffee, orange juice, 2 mini rolls, croissant and melba toast per person.
Overall, our stay was fine, even if over-priced, until the last morning. We got up, for breakfast at 9.45. We then lay back on the bed as we had a number of hours to pass, prior to our flight time. We got an angry knock on the door at 10.50, advising that latest check-out was 10.30 and that we had 10 minutes to leave the room. My wife packed the bags while I went to pay the bill. The hotel prefers cash.
We asked if we could leave our bags for a couple of hours and the hotel had no problem !
We returned about 3.00 p.m to be accosted by the housekeeper. She asked what we had done to the sheets ? She showed us a large cofffe stain on the sheet and said that the mattrerssses had been destroyed !
We stated that we did not know anything about what happed and that the room had been left open on our departure. I was put on the phone to Stefano who did not bother to call and see us ! We were never shown the damage to the mattress ! I replied that if we had caused damage to his property, that we were unlikely to leave our bags on the premises.
I felt that I had explained the situation satisfactorily and we left. I received an e-mail from Stefano 2 days later which stated that all the other people in the hotel were old and that they would not have caused the damage. He was putting a 300 euro charge on my credit card. The subsequent e-mails from him have been aggressive !
I believe that htis is a con-job as we never caused any damage to hotel property and we were never shown the damaged mattress. Other travellers take note and beware !
