Expert review of Locanda La Corte

This inn, with Gothic courtyard, trad Venetian décor and quiet location, is a restful option.

A real dedication to helping guests get the most out of Venice makes the 16-room La Corte a true locanda (inn) in both name and spirit. I found that the list of "dos & don'ts" sitting on tables in the courtyard was an unfortunate boarding house note in an overall ambience which was rather more sophisticated.

Location: 

The setting, for me, is perfect: in a 16th-century palazzo not far from the church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, this hotel isn’t easy to find – and there are a few bridges to haul luggage over if you’re arriving by vaporetto rather than pulling up to the private water entrance in a water taxi – but once there, you’ll appreciate being quite so close both to St Mark’s and the Rialto area, but in a quiet corner of town.

Bedrooms: 

Room décor is standard Venetian ‘settecento’ style, with terrazzo floors and flock wallpaper. Unless space is an issue, the classic or moderate doubles are just fine; I find that larger suites can feel a little bare. Some rooms can be rather dark: for more light, opt for a courtyard-facing room.

Breakfast is served in the courtyard when the weather permits.

Service isn’t always as friendly as it could be but it’s very professional and many staff members are quite charming.

Mature travellers feel quite at home in this reassuring place, though negotiating bridges to get here may be an issue for some. Culture-seekers appreciate the locanda’s proximity to major sights, while suites which can sleep up to five people are perfect for families.

Very central but very quiet
Lovely courtyard
Helpful staff
Cons: 
Nearest vaporetto stop is several bridge-climbs away
Some less friendly staff members
