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.
"Dreams are made of this!"
The water Taxi dropped us at the front door of the hotel. We were treated like royalty and were amazed at the romantic rooms. The hotel has a superb restaurant next door to the hotel where a lovely breakfast is served. The hotel arranged free transport to the Glass factory and were very eager to please.
"good choice in venice"
We had a comfortable stayat locanda La Corte. Breakfast was very basic. Location of hotel convenient walk to St Mark square. Staff helpful, courteus. Only difficulty is carrying luggage over bridges on the way to ferry stations.
"Convenient location, old-fashioned facilities"
Locanda La Corte is conveniently located, but away from the tourist epicenter. It takes about 15 minutes to walk from the hotel to the Rialto Bridge or to the stop for the waterbus to Marco Polo airport. The hotel is also conveniently close to many good restaurants. Canal views from our room were lovely. The large, old-fashioned rooms are quiet and charming, yet come with some issues. WiFi was only working in the breakfast room when we were there. However, they said they were planning to install a new system. We had a small shower that drained so slowly we nearly flooded the room. Breakfast consisted of yogurt, cereal, sliced meat and cheese, bread, and a pastry.
"Good place to stay "
We stayed at this hotel. I am not sure why other members found it difficult to locate this place, but we found this place easily by following the Google maps direction. The room was well maintained and we didn't have any issues, we enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.
"Marco (owner) & Mark (manager) were great and provided excellent customer service. I would definitely stay her again."
Finally saw the beauty of Venice... so much to take in. Locanda La Corte is a a very old, quaint hotel that is centrally located. We were greeted by the hotel manager, Mark, who is a Filipino who provided excellent customer service. One of the rooms we reserved was not yet available (we got there a little early) and we were in a hurry to have lunch so we won't be late for our Venice tour and gondola ride. He upgraded my 2 friends since that was the only room available (he could've just let them keep their luggage in our room til theirs was available). There's no elevator and our room was situated on the 2nd floor (the quadruple room). Mark helped carry our luggage to our rooms. The room is spacious and bathroom is the average size for Europe standards. It's actually bigger than some of the hotels we stayed at in Italy. Our rooms were very clean, we had a queen size bed and a sofa bed good for 2 people that was fairly comfortable. We had lunch at the Taverna la Corte courtyard and we were personally served by Marco the owner. He was very nice and gave us a short history of the hotel. The menu is not extensive, however, what is offered was of excellent quality served along with a bottle of wine. The spaghetti in tomato and basil sauce, seafood soup and grilled turbot fish with potatoes were delectable. The ambiance was great, They had complimentary breakfast which we enjoyed and the server there who's Mark's sister was also very friendly and accommodating. This hotel is conveniently located and you can get to everything easily. It has a very charming atmosphere. Our water taxi dropped us off exactly at the doorstep and the manager helped us with our luggage both at check in and check out. CONS: WiFi only works at the lobby. :( Marco, the owner, and Mark, the manager, were great and provided excellent customer service. I would definitely stay here again. Marco and his staff are highly professional, accommodating and courteous. They were very attentive and went out of their way to please. . SPECIAL TIP: Bring a good map with directions (or GPS) because Venice looks like a maze with similar looking streets and which are narrow and mostly unmarked . We got lost and it was really late and there was nobody to ask for directions. Also, don't forget to bring a flashlight because not all streets have good lighting.
