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.
"Breakfast room turns into a very nice restaurant in the evening"
character boutique hotel small number of rooms around an enclosed courtyard. Very private and close to main amenities and shops. The hotel runs two very nice restaurants one integral and the other close by, both with live music, very good italian food especially the fish and small number of tables so not to noisy intimate atmosphere
Just back from our biannual visit to Venice for the biennale and have now stayed at the same locandalacorte for the last five visits. The main plus for this venue is location, just down from the hospital it is equidistant to Rialto bridge, St Marks square the railway/bus stations yet is away from the masses on the more grand canal side. Very clean with good linen, if possible book a canal room / suite and you will probably have one of the biggest rooms in Venice. A nice little courtyard for breakfast which is simple fare but adequate, there is also a small bistro attached which is run under different management, I can't really comment as I have yet to try it. They also have a smaller hotel about 200 metres away which they use as an overflow, friends have stayed there and say it was fine. The best bit of course is a water taxi stop at the door of the hotel, no humping bags about and even if you come by water bus it is only a simple 7/8 minute walk. Shouldn't really review this ,probably fully booked next time I visit.
"In the private apartment on the canal"
We rented the apartment on the canal, close to the hotel. After the check in (right at the hotel), a nice guy will lead you to this small but cozy apartment on the canal. Private bathroom with washing mashing, a kitchen with dishwashing mashing, a double room and a sleeping couch in the living room plus a table to eat watching the canal. You will see gondole pass by your window while having breakfast. Very expensive but sometimes it is a good idea to get in paradise.
"Charming hotel in Venice"
We enjoyed our stay in this historic and charming hotel. The location was great and we were on the edge of a small canal. We loved the breakfast, served in a charming room. We also enjoyed the open air courtyard. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were very comfortable.
"Charming boutique hotel"
We opted for the canal side junior suite and watched the daily movement of just about anything along the canal system. Staff were very friendly and helpful even tolerating our need to eat breakfast in the courtyard when sensible people were indoors! They filled our flask for our daily kayaking trips with Venice Kayak (by far the best way to see Venice). Hotel has great fresh pasta and there are several pizza restaurants on the back streets (better than the ones on the square). Small supermarket not far from the hotel stocked a good range of food so handy if self catering in the hotel apartments or just for lunch stuff. Great experience and definitely stay again.
