Location was good
Internet was poor.
Bed super hard.
We loved the fresh croissants and rolls. I think this is one of the best hotel breakfasts I've had because of those freshly-baked bread! The location is a 2-min walk away from the Rialto C stop (please note there are many Rialto stops so make sure you get on/off the exact one to avoid getting lost). The property is very close to the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square which was a huge plus!
NO LIFT. Our room was located on the 2nd floor so apart from the stairs that you have to climb to get to the reception, we also had to climb another 3 or 4 flight of stairs, and then climb back down on a narrow stair/passageway just to get to our floor. That wasn't very convenient especially if you're tired from walking around the whole day.
Location, location, location, OK it is not on the Grand Canal but there is a small canal that borders the hotel and our room had a small balcony that overlooks the canal. The room is decorated in the style that you would expect from Venice it was very nice. There is also a gondola stop right there if you so desire. This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and it is located half way between the Rialto Bridge and St. Marks Square. Great location to the San Marco area and you can easily walk to anywhere in a short distance. Our room had the best European air conditioning system I had ever experienced in Europe, it kept the room very nice as the temperature was 86-90 degrees throughout the day as well as staying a bit hot into the evening. It was nice to come back to the room periodically to "cool" down and refresh and then head back outside. The restaurant at the hotel is the "Le Bistrot de Venise", Michelen 2014 rated and Trip Advisor recommended is a superb restaurant with great ambiance whether dining inside or outside. Restaurant Staff was also great!!
There is not a thing I did not like about this hotel, be aware of lack of elevator which is not too uncommon in Venice.
Good service from the reception staff and clean rooms. Bathtub which made the little one happy. Close to the Marcus Square and easy to reach via the water bus and 10 min on foot. Antique style hotel very fitting to Venice.
Beds were very hard. No need to book canal view, as you really cant see much.
With a stay at Hotel Antica Locanda Al Gambero, you'll be centrally located in Venice, steps from Teatro Goldoni and Bareteri Bridge. Featured amenities include a computer station, express check-in, and express check-out.
