This is a unique hotel with a lot of charm and in a fantastic location. We stayed there for a total of 8 nights with a trip to Verona after the 5th night. In 8 nights, we stayed in 5 different rooms. Not because there was anything wrong with the rooms but because of our obsession with having an amazing view! Rooom 212 was our first room and it was heavenly - plenty of storage space and a whoe wall of mirrored bricks! The problem: the view was partially obscured by scaffolding on the church next door. They were more than obliging at getting us a room with a window balcony after 2 nights and we moved to room 204. This was smaller and had less storage space. After 5 nights we went to Verona and the Vivaldi staff were helpful in storing the luggage we did not want to take. On return, we had booked a classic suite. These do not have lagoon views. Once we saw the suite and the courtyard view, we knew we would like to get back to a room with a lagoon view. The man on the fron desk (Tomaso, I think) apologised that nothing was available that night but he could provide us with lagoon views on the last 2 nights. Only snag was we had to move twice more! First to room 102 : Paradise! walk-on balcony, lots of space and light - amazing view. Last night was in room 203.
Great breakfasts (once you got to know the system) and lots of variety. All staff were really friendly and most very helpful. I read about the reception desk staff being a little reserved and unfriendly. Found this to be parrticular to one person, however this person was efficient and did his best to accommodate our wishes.
No English channels on the TV. Free wifi for as many devices as you have with you. Very clean and well-kept. Would definitely visit again!
