This hotel sits right alongside a charming little canal between two even more charming little bridges, making my arrival feel like some romantic Venetian vacation movie. Inside, everything is clean, modern, light, and simple. There’s no 18th century “Venetian Style” bombast or overwhelming Murano glass lamps screaming “Look at me! I’m Venetian!” Instead, the design leans more towards art deco, and the atmosphere is warm and comfortable more than it’s opulent and impressive. The double room had very simple furniture and a little bathroom with a shower – all decent, all clean, all basic, all perfectly fine. There’s a common area on the second floor with a cool etched mural, though I can’t imagine spending much time there except to wait for someone staying in another room. I did, however, like the tiny little wooden terrace on the top floor, and if I returned in the summer, I can imagine spending lots of alone time up there with my journal. The real draw of Locanda Silva, though, is its location – quiet, lovely, and central. I wouldn’t come back for a special occasion, but if I simply wanted a nice, inexpensive place to stay, I’d definitely choose Silva again.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers

Well, honestly, I thought the room was a bit bland, but I still love Locanda Silva. Though it’s only a minute walk from a lively shopping/eating district, it’s on a tiny, secluded, quiet "street" alongside a beautiful little canal. The views from inside are beautiful too. The room had a lovely canal view, as did the two humble but charming little rooftop terraces – each with great and different perspectives (literally) on the city. I especially love all the art on the walls. It feels like someone took a piece of charcoal and just walked around the whole building, leaving simple, scenic murals behind.
Complimentary breakfast is served daily.
