I was very pleased that I chose to stay here, my first time in Italy. It was a short walk from the ferry stop, ( the direct boat from the airport ) at San Stae, but be careful walking these " streets " and alleyways. It is part of the fun of visiting Venice, but it is not laid out anything like how one might expect - a labyrinth if I ever saw one! ( By the third night, I walked back from the area of the Academic Bridge without the use of Google maps on my phone or a handheld map, and arrived at the hotel without any wrong turns...I was proud of myself. )
This hotel is a small operation with seven rooms surrounding a lobby/breakfast room. I thought the room was quite attractive, although there was no artwork on the walls, but plenty in the breakfast area. The staff is cordial and helpful. They much prefer to be paid in cash and offer a substantial discount for doing so. Since they are such nice folks, I gave up my airline miles! The breakfast is OK - no hot items, and nothing to get excited about. Sure, I would stay here again.

The elegant Locanda Sant'Agostin is located in the rooms of the Piano Nobile of a Sixteenth Century patrician palazzo, and is the result of careful restoration work. Finesse and intimacy can be seen in every detail: the parquet flooring with its warm colours, the Murano glass, the stucco cornices and the leaded glass.Staying in one of Venice's Locanda means choosing an intimate and friendly ambience, without compromising on style. ... more less
