Hotel description Antica Locanda Sturion

Free WiFi

Hotel Antica Locanda Sturion, one of the rare small 3 star Hotels overlooking theGrand Canal, stands just next to the celebrated Rialto Bridge. It is one, and the only still running, of the 24 Ancient “Locandas” (Inns) in town: the hallmark of Venice’s grand Hospitality over 4 centuries. It was back in the XIII centurythat the Doge in person allowed the conversion of the original palace into the Locanda, which has now been open for business for roughly 4 centuries, enduring demolition, fires and restoration. Wealthy merchants dealing in spices and precious silk, sea captains and visiting ambassadors enjoyed its renowned hospitality. Locanda Sturion’s sign is also depicted in “The Miracle of the Relic of the True Cross”, the celebrated painting by Vittore Carpaccio dating back to 1494 and exhibited in theAccademia Galleries. Long-established kindness and cordiality still make the strong point of this historicLocanda, now fitted with all comforts

"Close to the centre of things. A quick walk to Rialto Bridge. Staff were pleasant."
"The reception is on the fifth floor as are all the rooms. There are 69 steps to climb. No elavator. My room was in the reception or else the reception was in the hall outside my door. About 5 feet away. I could hear every conservation that was had. The TVs sound control was set low so you could not drown it out. There were 4 rooms of the dining room as well. It lacked privacy"

"For Venetian standards, the hotel was good. Man mus know just which one finds in Venice no brand new hotel. Hotel had a nice view of the main channel from the lobby out you could enjoy the view. Unfortunately there are only 2 rooms with views of the main channel. Words had a view of the old town."

"Liegt direkt am Grand Canal / Rialto (2 plus Frühstücksraum Zimmer mit Blick direktem), trotzdem sehr ruhig. Man hat das Gefühl, in einem alten Patrizierhaus zu wohnen, sehr nett."
"approx 80 Treppenstufen bis ins manchmal Hotel sind etwas Mühsam"

"The staff was very friendly and the room clean. The location is not top. The breakfast was very good. The price-performance ratio in the pre-season was great. We would decide in Venice this hotel again."
"The climb to the hotel (69 steps) is troublesome for people with disabilities or heavy luggage."

"Great location, with a view of the Rialto Bridge, which are from the breakfast room and two rooms right on the Grand Canal, but also the rest of the back room is not to be underestimated in the prime location, very clean and top equipped in venizianischen style rooms, super friendly staff, great breakfast ..."

"Super central location almost directly to the Rialto Bridge, yet quiet. Ideal for Venice sightseeing. Not suitable for people with disabilities - many stairs - no elevator. Room with flair and clean."

"A small hotel near the Rialto Bridge. Access in a side alley. Of course you can not expect great rooms, but who was in Venezia in small hotels, knows that a room can also be much smaller than in Sturion. Nice bathroom, charming breakfast room, breakfast acceptable. The future will be my hotel in Venice."
"Access is a bit difficult: you have to go two floors up a narrow staircase. But I've also done at night to three (delay due to snow)."
