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.
"Great stay in Venice "
This is a great little place to stay. Simple but good breakfast with very friendly staff. We had a canal view room which was very comfortable, but would also have been happy with a courtyard view. Very good position for visiting all of Venice.
"Amazing stay in apartment at Locanda La Corte"
Stayed for three nights as a family, so rented the deluxe apartment with the canal view. You check in at the main hotel lobby and they walk you over to the apartment. You can actually see it from the main hotel, but it's a 3-4 minute walk away and over another bridge. Not only did it have a canal view, it was right on the canal and had a private door that opened so you could sit canal side. The apartment was huge and had a fully equipped kitchen. We took them up on their breakfast at the main hotel one morning, but preferred to have breakfast in our apartment. The apartment was quiet and was a great place to relax after running around the city all day. The location is good and we walked to everything without having to take any water taxis. To get there when we first arrived, we did take a vaparetto to the Rialto bridge stop and then walked from there...getting lost several times! On the way back to the train station we ended up walking and it took us 30 minutes. The staff at the main hotel front desk were very nice and helpful whenever we had questions. We loved Venice and we loved our apartment. Oh and did I mention it also has a washing machine that we were in desperate need of and it worked perfectly. I would highly recommend staying here if you are travelling to Venice! I hope to get back someday!
Great hotel and great location! Very close to St Marco's square. Spacious room that fit the 4 of us. Very comfortable and friendly. Highly recommended! We will definitely stay again in this hotel when we come back!
The hotel is tricky to find. If you haven't visited Venice before book a private water taxi from Marco Polo airport and ask to be dropped by the Ospedale. The concierge spoke good English, he was friendly and helped with any information we needed.The hotel is well-placed for the traveler to explore on foot. Free transport is provided each day at 10am to take you to Murano. You have to make your own way back. Breakfast was basic with fruit, ham, cheese, yoghurt and croissants. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the room. The bed was comfortable which was just as well as we walked miles everyday getting used to the maze of streets to get to the main attractions. The room was spotless.
"Very comfortable stay"
We only stayed there for a night, but really enjoyed the room. It was comfortable and very very large. We had a nice window overlooking a small canal and that was a nice treat to have. Wifi was decent but not great. It allowed us to FaceTime home, though so that was better than other hotels in Italy. The bed was very firm, but I experienced that in all my hotels in Italy. The breakfast was very good. Now, it is hard to find if this is your first time in Venice. We followed my phone's GPS to the location (also consulting the directions the hotel sent me). The frustrating part is that we actually arrived at the hotel but there are no signs saying we were at the right place. The GPS told me I was there, but there was nothing! It wasn't until I opened the hotel door (so I could ask whoever was there) that I saw the rug with the name of the hotel. It would have been nice just to have a small sign saying the name of the hotel on the outside. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
