This hotel is in an amazing location, right on the Canale Grande, in the midst of all the action. The staff were amazing and so helpful. Our room was a suite on the top floor with a terrace balcony overlooking the canal. Postcard views right from your room! The room itself was very spacious (great even for a family of... More

After reading many reviews on Trip Advisor I decided to book this hotel. It was a great choice, close to St. Marco Square, to the water taxis, to the activities of the Carnival of the masks. The hotel was traditional in its look, in its character and in its architecture. As like most Italian hotels there is no gym. Breakfast... More

Our first visit to Venice, we booked this hotel on recommendation from friends. Absolutely the right choice. Our first floor room gave us a canal view, it was spotlessly clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and very helpful giving us advice and helping to book events. Breakfast was relaxed and plentiful. The rooftop terrace gave us a fantastic viewpoint... More

We stayed at Hotel Locanda Vivaldi for 5 nights and it was relaxing, comfortable and very clean. The staff were polite and very helpful but not overpowering. The staff helped us plan our excursions and we were able to catch a water taxi from our hotel to another island. The breakfast was excellent. This hotel was Vivaldi's home and next... More

Perfect location, right on the Grand Canal with a bar/restaurant open in the summer that overlooks the basin. I think it closes Dec – March. The staff are incredible friendly and within 2 minutes we were checked in and shown to our room. This was at 10.30 pm so I expected a hotel short of staff but no it was... More

Wonderful hotel on the Grand Canal in Venice. Our room had windows that opened with a view of the canal. Rooms were exquisite and comfortable. Staff was extremely helpful to someone that didn't speak Italian. The restaurant and bar on the top floor was eloquent and served good food. They offer a free taxi ride to Murano and a display...

After combing through reviews of dozens of hotels for our short holiday in Venice, we chose the Locanda Vivaldi because other travelers rated it so highly, plus it was easy to get to and from the airport: simply take the Alilaguna Blu line, and 45 minutes later, disembark at San Zaccharia. Our check-in took about 2 minutes and we were... More

Buonasera! I'm sorry for the happening, but things are a little different. I confirm you that the "smell" (which is not a real smell but the natural odor of the water of the lagoon) is due to the tide and the canal. I'm sorry for that, but this is part of Venice. The town is in the middle of the... More

Venice itself is already oh-so-romantic, but Locanda Vivaldi hotel made our stay here even more memorable with their lovely gesture for us - Complimentary wine for us newlyweds!

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
