As summary of my opinion: we return to this hotel every time we are in Venice since 2008. I reported it earlier and I am pleased to inform that Locanda Vivaldi keeps its quality of place and services. This year new is last floor terrace restaurant open for lunch and dinner for hotel guests. As far as I know there are very few places in Venice you can eat and enjoy such a beautiful view. If you do not like to eat – just go there for drinks and enjoy the Laguna and entrance do Canal Grande view. Main reasons we stay there: excellent location, close to San Marco and to all water transport lines, nice, clean and very well maintained Venetian style rooms, most with great view, buffet breakfasts, free wi-fi all over the place and – most of all – friendly and helpful staff. After so many visits to Venice we do very well ourselves but if we need help or advice they never fail and if we are familiar with Venice and its features we owe it to the front desk staff, Stefano and Tommaso. We are tempted to try other hotels of the group, one of which overlooks Canal Grande and are equally nice, but our final decision at the end of the day is always Locanda Vivaldi.
