What a lovely hotel! The amenities were exceptional, along with the views and location! The best sleep I had in all of the two weeks spent in Europe! Thank you for making us feel at home and providing a romantic weekend in Venice!

We had an exceptional experience at the Vivaldi. It is conveniently located close to San Marcos and transportation on the Grand Canal. The staff was pleasant and available to answer questions, give advice or arrange for a taxi to pick us up just out the back door. The room while small was clean and serviced well and the breakfast offered a nice variety of options. Overall a most enjoyable stay in Venice.

Our Room was lovely. Just open the window and we could overlook the canal. Perfect location. Breakfast was included and done very nicely. Roof top was great for a cocktail. Staff was very helpful with all our requests. Room darkening blinds were awesome.

Room Tip: Have a room overlooking the canal.

This hotel is exquisite in its furnishing and details. Service is excellent and location is phenomenal. It is directly across from the S. St. Marks stop for the public water taxi (I can't spell Vaporetto correctly). Very convenient walking to St.Marks Square. There is a lovely roof top restaurant that unfortunately we didn't sample, except for a drink. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The canal and partial canal view rooms were delightful.

This jewel of a hotel is just far enough away from St. Mark's Square to be a relative oasis from the nearby craziness. We stayed in Room #212 which was beautifully appointed with a large window facing the lagoon. The service was friendly and immaculate. The rooftop restaurant was surprisingly good and very reasonable.

Can only echo what the other reviewers say re location etc. We were recommended the hotel by friends and were not disappointed. Friendliness and efficiency of all staff was very good and it seemed a quiet haven given its proximity to the main sights.

Bed was hard and the shower alternately froze or scalded you but nowhere is perfect!

Classy decor and a great ( probably under used ) roof terrace to watch the sun go down.

We have already recommended it to others.

This was our first visit to Venice and we chose Locanda Vivaldi because of its location close to the Alilaguna landing stage at San Zaccaria, as we were arriving from the airport and departing on a cruise. The hotel exceeded our expectations as our room had a window with a view of the Rio dei Greci canal, the bridge over the canal, the Riva degli Schiavoni and the church of S, Maria della Salute in Dorsoduro. The room was a reasonable size with tasteful furnishings and was very quiet. The breakfast, served in the Dining Room was very good. The hotel is very close to Piazza San Marco and there are many shops and restaurants nearby. Service from the staff was very professional.
Our stay at Locanda Vivaldi really made our visit to Venice totally memorable.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the Rio dei Greci are very quiet.
