We spent one night in the Locanda Cavanella in Venice and would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in Venice at as very reasonable price for a central location. The hotel is in one of the small streets behind St Mark's Square and whilst tricky to find initially, was very convenient.
The hotel, somewhat like Venice itself, has an air of faded elegance with old fashioned chandeliers, a lot of gold paint and marble floors. Our room was comfortable and spotless, with an efficient shower, although my friend complained that it was built for one of the 7 dwarves!
One thing to point out for anyone who wants to use electrical equipment, the sockets are the very old type with 3 round pins, so remember to take a suitable adaptor as the usual European ones do not fit.
We breakfasted in the smallest dining room ever, the hotel lobby in fact, but despite this quirk, the breakfast was simple and delicious.
The Locanda Cavanella is definitely not the Ritz, but for 110 Euros for bed and breakfast in the centre of the city, you could do much worse.
One more small word of warning, there were a couple of holes in the marble floor in the bedroom - surreptitiously covered by a rug!
