4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I loved my three nights here and the magnificent view from my room. I had booked a room with a view of the side canal and I got that, but I also got an incredible view of the lagoon which was the loveliest surprise. Breakfast was very nice, and the coffee was perfect. The location was fantastic, and my room... More

Nice hotel experience, very well located, comfortable albeit small rooms, good breakfast. It missed a top rating because the staff is a bit stiff. No early check in, no remembering guest's names, but helpful with good recommendations when asked. All in all, a good choice in a good location at a reasonable price.

Hotel Vivaldi is an oasis 7 buildings from St Marcos and next to the Ferries going up the Grand Canal & to the airport. The rooftop restaurant open from May is cosy, has the friendliest waiter & offers good food. You can just stop for a drink too. The view is amazing! Our room was completely quiet at the back,...

Location - great for St Mark's Square and nearby sites, and for waterbuses. Not too noisy - there are boat horns in the morning especially if it is misty but, hey, that reminds you that you are in Venice! Church bells too, which are lovely to listen to. A police station is on the other side of the canal, and... More

Buongiorno! Thanks a lot for your very kind review and suggestions.

There's nothing else we are authorized to do unfortunately. Don't worry, we are not going to buy a Ferrari with... More

This hotel is located in a great location on the Grand Canal boardwalk. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and very clean. Their breakfast buffet was great. Highly recommend!

Location is excellent close to St. Marks square and right next to the Vaporetto station. Stefan provided us with a map on arrival and marked up areas of interest. Breakfast above average. Rooms were very clean, beds comfortable and bathroom adequate (for Europe). At first glance appears overpriced but remember location, location, location. Nice electric shades that completely black out... More

Locanda Vivaldi was a very nice hotel right on the water and a short walk to St Marks square. They had a great breakfast and the staff were very nice. The rooms were spacious by European standards and had a great view of the water. The water taxis stop right at the hotel.

Great location. Nice, polite and helpful staff. We paid up for a room overlooking the water - beautiful view and included breakfast. The only down side is that the complimentary boat that was supposed to take us one-way to/from the airport was apparently being fixed so we did not get that benefit - and no "credit" to our bill either.

An absolute gem of a hotel, located on the water front with spectacular views across the sea. From the start when dealing direct with the hotel the communication couldn't have been better which gave a sense of comfort that all was going to be well. We were not disappointed, everything about the hotel was great, bedrooms, public rooms, breakfasts, friendly... More

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.
