“Stunning hotel, fantastic staff, great location”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

It is a while since I stayed here but remember it so well. Arrived on a water taxi from the airport and was greeted nicely by hotel staff.

bedrooms were fabulous and the meals in the hotel were great.

Location is really close to St marks Square with great views across the lagoon.

Would highly recommend this.

Room Tip: Get a bedroom at the front overlooking the lagoon.

All staff very friendly and polite.

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!

Room Tip: If you want a room overlooking the lagoon, then the best one is room 102 as I think it is the only o...

Our family of 4 (kids 12 and 15) stayed here for a few nights before we left on a cruise. It is a great location!!! Only about a 3 minute walk to St. Mark's square and the Doges Palace, etc. It is on the Grand Canal-some had mentioned noise bothering them but it never bothered us.
The free WiFi is a plus!!!
The breakfast that is included is a nice full buffet!!! Great eggs, delicious bacon (not American bacon but real prociutto ham), many types of bread, fruit, cereal, oatmeal, and wonderful coffee with milk!!!
We reserved and stayed in one of the suites with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The bathrooms were very large and nice-with a tub and shower. Hairdryers were included which makes it convenient. There are only European outlets so bring a converter if you need to charge your cell, etc....
The concierge and bellman were both nice and helpful.
They also have a great restaurant on the roof open only in the warmer months. The food is fine but the view is great!!!! Eat a meal there once-order the homemade pasta of the day for sure!!!! That was yummy!!!!
We had a true Venice experience here.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July and chose it because of the location. For our first visit to Venice, it was a wonderful base and the views were great. We shared the room with our 15 year old daughter and the room was a good size for the 3 of us. We enjoyed an early evening drink at the roof bar every night, and thought the price was reasonable compared with outside. Breakfast was also very good. We absolutely couldn't fault the staff in any way and our stay was most enjoyable from start to finish. I would recommend getting up early (7-7.30) and going to St Marks Square to take photo's while it's quiet, as during the day it's absolutely rammed. The Doge's palace is not to be missed, and at EUR 30 for the 3 of us was an absolute bargain.

Room Tip: We had a superior lagoon room on the 2nd floor which was a good size, very quiet and had great views...
