Locanda al Leon

Bed & Breakfast

Good value and unpretentious, the delightful dall’Agnola family’s small hotel and new apartment make excellent bases for exploring Venice


13 rooms


Rooms sleep 1 – 4


Such friendly people and such a perfect spot: three minutes walk from everything that matters (like the Basilica end of St Mark’s Square, the airport bus and the vaporetto stops). This small, unpretentious, family-run hotel, its characterful old entrance down a tiny alley, is an excellent choice if you’re visiting Venice on a tightish budget but want to be at the centre of it all. It’s been modestly modernised. Clean, carpeted bedrooms (the biggest on the corner of the building, looking onto the Campo San Filippo e Giacomo and the Calle degli Albanesi) have Venetian-style bedheads with scrolled edges and floral motifs; there are matching striped counterpanes and curtains, modern Murano chandeliers and neat shower rooms. The new apartment, a five-minute walk from the hotel, is ideal for families. Breakfast is taken at a handful of tables on the big, first-floor landing (no lift) buffet-style: breads and croissants, yogurts and fruit juice – what you’d expect for the price. And there’s no shortage of advice – one or two members of the delightful dall’Agnola family are always around.

Just back from a wonderful holiday in Venice which was made perfect by our stay at Locanda al Leon. It’s a beautiful house, decorated in the traditional way, and central to everything we wanted to experience. We were warmly welcomed by Giuliano and Marcella and all the staff, who shared their stories and local knowledge to make our Venetian holiday so memorable. Thank you, all.
