Fodor's Expert Review Locanda Fiorita

Campiello Novo, San Marco 3457, Venice, Veneto, 30124, Italy See on Map

Simple, clean, and quiet, Locanda Fiorita offers everything you need in a cute, affordable package. It’s more like a B&B than a hotel, and the super-friendly service and cozy atmosphere make guests feel right at home—just with Venice at their doorstep.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Don't expect anything luxe at this hotel, but for a place to lay your head, it does just fine.

room

Guest rooms are small, but all have 18th-century furnishings and wood floors, and some sport their own little balconies.

bathroom

On the very small side, bathrooms are reminiscent of what you might find on a boat and have showers only—but C.O. Bigelow bath products are a charming touch.

YOU SHOULD KNOW One of the rooms has a private external bathroom (though all the rest are en-suite), so read the fine print when you book.

lobby

It’s cute and tiny, with exposed brick, but there’s really no place to sit there.

dining

Locanda Fiorita doesn’t have a restaurant, but the included breakfast is a mix of croissants, breads, fruit, and other goodies.

Take your breakfast either out in the adorable courtyard if the weather’s good, or in your room if not.

LOCATION

Getting Around

The San Samuele vaporetto stop is a quick 4-minute walk away, while all the other main Venice sites are easily accessible on foot (as long as you don’t get lost!).

Restaurants

Try Ai Mercanti (6-minute walk), a haven for inventive dishes at a reasonable price, while Osteria Enoteca San Marco (7-minute walk) is a surprisingly ultra-modern Italian bistro with a wonderful wine list amongst a sea of tourist traps. Michelin-starred Ristorante Quadri (9-minute walk) is pricey and gets mixed reviews, but its prime location in Piazza San Marco is worth a look.

Bars

Enoteca al Volto (6-minute walk) is a fine place to stop for some cicchetti (bar snacks) and wine on a quiet back street. Lively wine shop/bar Cantine del Vino già Schiavi (8-minute walk) has no seating, but serves up inexpensive wines with interesting small bites. Or try a Bellini cocktail at the place it was invented, Harry’s Bar (9-minute walk).

WHY WE LIKE IT

For a calm yet easily accessible location that won’t break the bank, Locanda Fiorita can’t be beat.
