I stayed for a week in May. Exceptional little hotel, very friendly people. My room was large and really nice. Double glazed window, absolutely quiet. Very comfortable bed. Large and well-designed bathroom. Tasty breakfast, including really nice fresh pastry and fruit. Eugenia makes excellent coffee. Everyone is very friendly. I received plenty of help and whenever I asked for an advice regarding Venetian attractions or the best ways to get to any point in the city. It is a small hotel, just a few rooms, so you get very personal attention.
Very convenient location, roughly mid-way between the train station and the bridge of Rialto (which is the focal point of the city). It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the station to the hotel. The same from the hotel to Rialto. The location is nice and quiet. They email you a map which clearly marks the way to the hotel, should you choose to walk from the station. You should definitely stick to the recommended route, otherwise it is easy to get lost.
Locanda Sant'Agostin is a very good base for exploring Venice. There are several must-see attractions in the immediate surroundings of the hotel, especially the church of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari and Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
The staff's recommendations regarding local restaurants were spot on. I especailly liked the place in Campo San Polo, they serve simple and delicious home-style food.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Locanda Sant'Agostin and would definitely recommend it to anyone who plans to spend a few days exploring the city.
