In the heart of Venice
just 3 minutes from St. Mark’s square.
Locanda Silva is in Venice city centre between St. Mark’s and Rialto, close to Mercerie, the most famous shopping street in town, and 15 min. on foot away from the Biennale. At short walking distance (5 min) you may also find the waterbus stops of Alilaguna – the company running services to and from the airport – and ACTV, the main public transport service in town with connections to the islands of Murano, Burano, Torcello and the Lido plus all destinations in Venice like for example the Accademia bridge and Gallery.
Locanda Silva was established in 1956. Due to its position in the historical centre of Venice and the inherent restrictions imposed by the Sovrintendenza alle Belli Arti (an office of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage), the hotel has never been granted permission to install a lift. That is why - despite providing comfort comparable to a two-star hotel - Locanda Silva still maintains its one-star rating and prices with a minimum visitor’s tax of just 1 € per night.
Feeling at Home
The inn is a family business run by proprietress Sandra Perut, a born Venetian who has followed in the footsteps of her late father Ettore who started the business back in 1956. For his work merits Mr. Ettore Perut was awarded the Order of Cavaliere del Lavoro by the President of the Italian Republic.
A short 3-minute walk will bring you to St. Mark’s square and its magnificent Basilica. Not much further away (just 5 min.) is the Rialto bridge and its colorful vegetable and fish market.
Practically all of our staff have been working with Locanda Silva for a considerable number of years. Mainly composed of Venetians, our staff will be eager to share information and hints that only local residents can provide.
