Lonely Planet review
Wander through the maze of narrow calli (backstreets) in this untouristed corner of Venice, and discover interiors that are unexpectedly spacious and gracious. Guestrooms here have tall windows to capture the light and more than enough room for massive antique armoires and writing desks.
This inn has only been open a few years, but you'll need to pinch yourself to remember you're in the 21st century in this converted monastery. The communal areas are stiffly formal with all the straight-backed chairs and unwieldy antique sideboards, but the rooms are dapper and comfortable. Curtains, upholstery, and headboards are done up in dusky blue damask and framed in gilt wood. Chandeliers shed a flattering light in guestrooms, and modern bathrooms sparkle with creamy marble and cheering Hapsburg yellow walls. No 105 has traditional terrazzo alla Veneziana (Venetian marble) floors, but the zig-zag parquet in other guestrooms is sensational. The best two rooms have small balconies overlooking the Ponte de Sant'Agostin, the canal beneath it and a small square. Look out for Fortuny's version of Velázquez' L'Infanta in the breakfast area.
Our independent authors have visited Locanda Sant'Agostin and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Sestiere di San Polo & Santa Croce (Santa Crose).
