“Great Location”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights with my mom and sister and we had a great stay. The location of the hotel (once we found it for the first time!) was perfect for us- very close to St. Mark's Square and a few vaporetto stops. We had limited time in Venice, so we didn't spend much time in the hotel, but the room had plenty of space and didn't feel cramped at all. The staff we interacted with were all friendly and offered recommendations on hotels and sights. The breakfast was nice as well- rolls, croissants, cheese, yogurt, and coffee/tea. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a good value budget hotel!

Stairs, stairs & more stairs. If you aren't ready to climb, don't go to Italy!! The Locanda Silva was a convenient location & a decent value, especially with the simple breakfast included. We had two beds in the room, and they were narrow, firm to the point of being hard, and very close together. The bathroom was typical for Italy - small, but functional.

Having read mixed reviews prior to booking this hotel, I am pleased to say that we were not disappointed. In terms of the cost for hotels in Venice (exuberant prices!) then this budget hotel was ideal. The location was fantastic near to San Marco, so you can easily find when you have roamed for miles around the cross network of streets and canals. The staff all very friendly with greetings every day with a smile. The room was adequate, basic, clean with a shower room and toilets close by so no real need for an en suite. The Italian breakfast was lovely too.

Room Tip: Perhaps request a room overlooking the Canal for a great view

This hotel is good value for what it is. It's centrally located (bring a map), breakfast is included which is great, the rooms are small and clean (not under the bed) but the beds aren't the most comfortable. I also forgot some things at the hotel and the staff has been fairly unresponsive to helping me get my things back.

The location and price make this a hotel well worth looking at. The rooms are basic and very small, the bathrooms tiny (with good towels) and on the surface clean (don't look under the bed!) Breakfast is continental and adequate served by helpful staff, it is ideal for a long weekend.

Some tips; if the glass doors at the entrance are stiff, push hard...don't ring the bell or go next door thinking you have made a mistake or are locked out. Remember to greet the male receptionist with "good evening" (or equivalent) he will correct you if you forget. Do not use the password displayed on the computer for your personal WiFi, you, or some random person, may be shouted at. The other receptionists seemed less tetchy, hence 3 not 2 for service.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms (1 & 2) are next to the computer terminal which may disturb you if a noisy...

Staying in Venice is quite pricey, so for this location just a few minutes walk from San Marcos square, we enjoyed it! It was one of the cheaper options we had, located right along the water in one of the small side streets/canals.

[pros]
-Great location! A few minutes walk to San Marcos square, and a lot of the top tourist attractions.
-Right along one of the small canals flowing through Venice.
-Room had all the basic amenities. We got a 4 person room and although it wasn't spacious, definitely a good fit for us.
-There was an issue with our bathroom and the manager we spoke to promptly refunded some of our money.

[cons]
-A little hard to find, but I think you just have to expect that with navigating Venice. If you have a map, you should be able to find it.
-At night, the staff there didn't speak English very well so we had a hard time communicating our issue with the toilet. (However, he did try to help us as much as he could.)
-No elevator, so be prepared to carry your luggage upstairs.
[cons]

This was the usual basic no frills room, but we don't waste money on expensive hotels when we only need a comfortable bed. Great location, as mentioned before, hard to find but so is everything in Venice which is what we loved about Venice. Room was nice and quiet.
