Antica Locanda Sturion”, probably Venice’s most ancient hotel still running, is a cosy small Venetian House featuring just 11 Rooms. Its decor and Venetian red damask make it special, creating a truly traditional unique and cosy feeling.


Superb views of the Grand Canal and Rialto Bridge from the two Superior Rooms and the beautiful Breakfast Lounge, which is also:

- a reading room with a tiny yet well-stocked library boasting a number of books in various languages.
- a living room for an afternoon break and taking photos of the magnificent sunsets on the Grand Canal.


Recall that the hotel offers breakfast for Celiac (Gluten Free)

This Boutique Hotel is a small and well-established family business run by Nicole, Manuela, Helen and Flavia, who will do all their best to provide you with specific suggestions and advice for an unusual and intriguingly unique approach to our town.
As there is no lift to reach the Locanda, situated on the top floor of an Ancient Palace on the Grand Canal, we want our Guest to be aware they have to climb a long stairs,
but our porter Giuseppe will be happy to help you carrying upstairs your heaviest items.
