“Perfect location”
Reviewed 4 July 2010

We booked at the last minute due to change of plan and needed a place in a central location, close to airport and train connections. This charming hotel exceeded our expectations. A stone's throw from St Marks and facing on the Grand Canal! Almost opposite were the Vaporetto stop and AliLaguna transport to the airport. Hotel itself was lovely. Small, intimate, with excellent service. It had a beautiful rooftop terrasse/bar which was a great escape from the bustling throngs of tourists in Venice. I would definitely stay again.

This was our second trip to Venice. We decided to splurge and stay at this hotel for our second visit too. Staff is efficient, although a little aloof. Housekeeping had trouble on our second day and did not make up the room until after 4 pm.
However, you cannot beat the location as it is next door to Santa Maria della Pieta, one bridge down from the S. Zacharaia vaparetto stop/Aliluguna airport shuttle stop-- and just a few minutes walk from St. Mark's square.
In spite of the fact that this hotel is top-notch (decor is "very Vivaldi" with tons of Murano glass fixtures, mirrors, etc. and the linens are immaculate), the breakfast selection is just plain disapointing and under par for such a high-end hotel. The "srambled eggs" were disgusting.
Also, because the location is so close to St. MArk's, there is an incredible amount of hustle-bustle in front of the hotel. Thousands of people passing by and hyndreds of boats coming ang going all the time. Be prepared for huge crowds.

Dear Friend,

I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay, even if you had a trouble with the cleaning of the room the second day of your stay. I'm very sorry for the happening, please accept my apologise.

I don't have the same opinion of you concerning the eggs. We ususlly prepare the scramble eggs with the butter, as this is the most common way to do it. But it's not the only one! They can be done with many other ingradients and we can also replace the butter with something else (i.e. a little bit of oil).
If you like the eggs (or anything else!) in a particular way just let us know, we will be more than happy to prepare them as you like!

I wait to welcome you again in our hotel, warmest regards!

Location: close to all main tourist attractions in Venice, few minutes to St Marco Square, overlooks one of main walking paths - Riva Degli Schiavoni. Also close to water transport stops - makes travel around Venice and lagoon (Murano, Burano, Lido and others) easy. Good public water transport from railway station and airport for those who want to save on water taxi. Hotel's own water taxi and gondola stop.

Rooms: nice, cozy, quite big as for European city, very clean and well maintained. Also suites, last year we booked one with private balcony. This year we booked double overlooking St Marco basin. Large terrace on the top floor, excellent to watch the basin, Island of S.Giorgio Maggiore, very busy water path, sometimes with big ships, and entrance to the Great Canal.

Services: solid breakfast with good choice of food. Own restaurant open at the evening. Bar - serves also appetizers before restaurant is open. No concierge but the front desk staff great and friendly, they are always ready to give you advice and help to set things. We followed their recommendations several times and we were never disappointed. Staff really makes a difference here.

General: small hotel which gives you all you need plus family feeling and individual treatment. Instead of recommendation I can only say that this was our third stay at Locanda Vivaldi and we intend to be beck next year to this place.

If you're looking for modern, this isn't it. If you're looking for atmosphere and history, you couldn't do better for the price. We were charmed by the staff, thought the breakfast more than ample with many choices, our suite was very comfortable for the 3 of us, and incredibly quiet. Staff went out of their way to make reservations, map out directions, etc. Internet (free) worked perfectly in our rooms. Location ideal, facing the Grand Canal and a short distance from Plaza San Marco. We'll be back and thank you again so much for all you did to make our stay so enjoyable.

The location is wonderful. Vaporetti stops are within 100 meters, the transport from the airport lands very near and your two bridges from St. Mark's and the Doge's Palace. The staff were very helpful, the room was clean and quiet and we overlooked a canal. We hope to return in a couple of years since two nights aren't nearly enough!

We spent 3 nights at the Locanda Vivaldi in March 2010. Our lovely room overlooked the lagoon. It was sufficiently spacious and very comfortable. Beds were turned down at night, and chocolates left on the pillow. We slept amazingly well, and were not disturbed by noise at any time. The weather was very cold during our stay, but our room was warm and cosy, with extra blankets provided. The staff were pleasant and friendly throughout our stay. Breakfast compared very well with that provided in other Italian cities. There is a lovely little bar at the back of the hotel. The reception area is pretty and welcoming. We found that nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who helpfully called to confirm restaurant bookings, and smiled and welcomed us whenever we were in the reception area. Our experience of the staff was entirely positive.

The location of Locanda Vivaldi is fantastic. It is a short walk from St Mark's Square, and there is a water bus stop close by. This means that visitors can access any part of the city with ease, and is particularly useful for exploring. We took a private taxi from and to the airport. The hotel has it's own landing stage, so this is very convenient.

We pre-booked restaurants, including Da Fiore, and the lovely, friendly, Alle Testiere. Both are well worth a visit.

We intend to come back to Locanda Vivaldi. It is a lovely hotel, and entirely enhances Venice's reputation.
