Lookin' good Leo! For being 600 years old, the Locanda Al Leon sure is in great condition. Friendly owners Giuliano and Marcella explained that the Al Leon looks good thanks to the numerous touch-up jobs and add-ons done throughout the centuries.

Situated a minute from San Marco and just off a happening little campo, the pension packs in the charm. A 15th-century stone dragon perches outside, wood-beamed ceilings can be found throughout, and damask covers the guest room walls.

Quick read

Pros: Historic charm. Unbeatable San Marco location. Great value.

Cons: No elevator. Can pick up street noise.


The Locanda Al Leon’s 14 rooms are relatively spacious and feel fresh. Soft colors, rich brocade, Murano glass light fixtures and Venetian-style furnishings make rooms both elegant and cozy. All are equipped with air conditioning, a safe, cable TV, telephone and minibar. Certain rooms have jaw-dropping views of the square (ask ahead).


The cream- or mint-colored private bathrooms are fresh and, once again, pretty spacious for Venice!


A continental breakfast is included in the room rate. Wi-Fi is free throughout. Note that the Locanda Al Leon has rather steep stairs and, like most small hotels in Venice, no elevator.

About the Locanda Al Leon neighborhood

The largest of the six "sestieri", Castello is divided into Castello and Castello Alto. Castello Alto borders San Marco and is home to innumerable cheap sleeps, as well as the Arsenale Naval Museum. The largely residential area doesn't boast much in the way of dining or nightlife, but its vicinity to San Marco and its overall convenient location makes Castello Alto a savvy alternative for budget-minded Cheapos.
