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