Locanda la Corte enjoys a charming location in Calle Bressana, in the "sestiere" or quarter of Castello, an exceptionally quiet area easily reached on foot from St. Mark's Square, the Rialto Bridge and the most important sites of Venetian art, including the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, the largest Gothic church in the city, the church of Santa Maria Formosa with its Baroque bell tower, and the Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli.
"very good if you have the right rooms"
The hotel can be hard to find if you don't really watch the little signs. It was raining and cold when we were looking for it and not stopping to look at street signs which are up high. You can't help crossing bridges no matter where you go in Venice. The location (once you know where it is, is actually fairly central and convenient.) Rooms were very clean, only thing I missed was a clock in the room. The complimentary breakfast, for Europe was very decent, with great coffee, After we found it, we realized we walked very close to it several times. Staff is very friendly and helpful, and spoke English.One flight of stairs to then rooms, but the owner helped carry our bags. I would definitely recommend staying here, but only if you are not in room 110 or 114.They overlook the street, and because of the narrow roads, and tall buildings, the street noise echoes so badly in the room. You hear every conversation of every single person that walks by. That being said, it is not a busy street, but there is a tiny restaurant/bar across the street. Wifi in lobby, and did work in our room (important if you have a teenager,) but apparently not all rooms
Unfortunately, although paid in full, we never got the opportunity to stay at this hotel. An Italian airport workers' strike prevented us from arriving to Venice on time. The hotel management refused to adjust our reservation or refund our money even though we contacted them a full day before our intended arrival. This is particularly unprofessional and egregious considering the hotel would have been fully aware of this strike well before we were even caught in the middle of it. As strikes are not unusual in this country, a more professional practice would be to actually notify customers of these situations. They certainly had the capacity to notify me immediately when my credit card on file had expired!
"Find another hotel"
This hotel is difficult to get to and find. You have to cross multiple bridges (which is a real problem when you have baggage) and there isn't an elevator, so you have to drag your luggage up a flight of stairs after you find the place. Also, management was rude, offensive and unreasonable. I recommend looking for another hotel if you're staying in Venice.
This hotel is conveniently located and you can get to everything easily but away from any high traffic or noise. The room is spacious and bathroom normal for Europe. The check in was quick and easy. The staff very nice and helpful. Enjoyed the nice breakfast to start your day and if the weather is good you can eat in the cute courtyard in center.
Very nice rooms in a lovely building that was a great spot to explore Venice and was a little further away from the huge crowds. Breakfast was very good in a lovely room with the choice of a courtyard for fine weather. The bathroom was clean and had plenty of hot water. We came in by water ferry from the Grand Canal to St Marks Square and then walked 10 minutes to get there. When we left we just walked to the train station which took an easy 25 minutes. I would definately stay here again. The staff were pleasant and helpful.
