Hotel Locanda OvidiusYou're looking for a smoke-free hotel on the Grand Canal, in the heart of Venice.

The Hotel Locanda Ovidius occupies two floors of a restored historic building at the corner of Calle de Sturion and the Riva del Vin, alongside the Grand Canal just to your left after you've crossed the Rialto Bridge from the Rialto vaporetto or airport-boat stop. The decor is 18th Century, but the hotel has the usual modern conveniences--including an elevator. Other amenities include a lounge on each floor, a canalside breakfast room, and two balconies where guests can watch the passing boat traffic from above.
