“Still the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2011

It was our fourth visit to the hotel and although we were offered other places, we find nothing really comparable. Main and important to us features are: excellent location, minutes walk from most of Venice attractions, meters from water transport stops. Great interior and spacious, very well maintained rooms, most with uncomparable view to the Laguna and Canale Grande entrance. And most of all professional, friendly, always helpful staff, who patiently guided us through Venice and Veneto. For all those four years we visited Venice we were never disapointed with their advice. They know the place by heart and they always help. 2011 additions: next door concerts and, following new national regulations in Italy, Internet access through all hotel, free.

We enjoyed our stay at the Vivaldi which had been recommended by friends. The roof terrace has amazing views across Venice. Rooms very traditional and breakfast good. Staff are helpful although not over friendly. My room had a lagoon view (lovely) but was on first floor which made it a bit noisy given this hotel is on main tourist thoroughfare along the water right by St Marks. Great location for the river boat buses and very close to the airoprt taxi river boat stop which makes a short break very easy.

Room Tip: get water taxi from airport to hotel 13 euros per

Wonderful location looking across the lagoon to San Giorgio. Although the waterfront is busy, it quietens down at night. Bedroom very comfortable with nice bathroom. Staff could not have been more helpful. Plenty of restaurants within 5/10 minutes walk plus small rooftop restaurant in the hotel with nice food and possibly the best view in Venice. Second visit and would stay there again.

The staff was very helpful and the hotel has old world charm. We especially enjoyed the stunning view from the restaurant where we had drinks and a delicious dinner both nights with the grandchildren. The hotel is very well located near St. Marks and the water with all the boats. Breakfast was excellent. We plan to return to this small hotel in the future.

Really helpful staff, impeccably clean and a superb position looking out on the lagoon and also over the canal. Nicely appointed rooms and bathrooms. Discovered David’s birthday from passport and sent some Prosecco on the house – how nice was that? Just a few minutes from St Marks and a few steps from the vaporetti station. Lovely time and would certainly recommend this hotel

5 of us stayed there for a Birthday celebration. Incidentally it was Carnival time. Couldn't ask for better location. Whole parade passed under our window. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Very comfortable bathroom but the jaccuzzi bathtub was damaged and it uncomfortable standing in it.
Most of the concierge/ reception are very polite. Pity about the breakfast which is cooked by the waiter and the waitress who also doubled as porter and housekeeper.
Imagine the result in particular during a very busy Carnival weekend. Badly laid tables, no crockery or cutlery available, hardly any food on the buffet left way before the end of breakfast time. When fianlly our fried eggs arrived way overcooked the waiter said ' little overcooked but never mind'!!!! and he was annoyed that I resorted to the Receptionist to get a decent breakfast.Definetely not their fault though but taht of the management who did not employ more staff to help out

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for the lagoon view rooms

Dear Friend,

I'm sorry for the jacuzzi and the breakfast. Unfortunately we don't always have the time to fix the things that the previous guests break. That is a shame I know! We always try to do our best but sometimes this is not enough.

Concerning the breakfast I assure you that we have enough waiters. We are almost fully booked everyday and not only during the carnival. If the people would not be enough we would receive thousand complaints about the service!!!
Anyway the things that you reported should not happen, we will investigate about them to not do the same mistake again.

I hope to welcome you again in our hotel in the next future, thank you and have a nice day!

Venice ist a very special and wonderful place and Locando Vivaldi is a wonderful hotel! We stayed the second time in Venice and in the hotel and enjoyed it very very much. Our room was very comfortable and beautiful. We like the Venetian decoration and the spectacular views to the lagune of Venice. If you walk during the day through the narrow streets and through the special world of little canals and bridges it is wonderful to have in the mornings and evenings the atmosphere and the lights of the lagoon (sunrise and sunset). You see all kinds of boats and you have an amazing view to San Giorgio and Santa Maria della Salute. The service of the hotel is excellent and the staff is very friendly, helpful and always in good mood. The hotel is centrally located next to piazza san marco and next to a vaporetto station but you can also easily walk to all places. We can highly recommend this hotel. Grazie mille a tutto il personale!!
