“Locanda Vivaldi perfect location for concert at Chiesa Pieta.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This is a lovely hotel in Castello is right next to the church of The Pieta - the church where Vivaldi was the music director and taught the orphan girls there. You can walk out of the hotel and you're practically in this lovely oval church - be sure to attend an evening concert there- the building and acoustics are beautiful. A nice surprise was a beautiful fruit basket upon arrival. The hotel is on the very busy Riva Schiavoni by day, by night, it becomes quiet and magical. The superior rooms were nice and large with lots of big windows. San Marco is a short walk and the Danieli is a few doors down. Be sure to walk through the beautiful but pricey, Danieli. The small rooftop restaurant is excellent with a wonderful view.

The hotel is in a 2-4 minutes walking distance to St. Marks Square and therefore has a perfect location to see all major sights in Venice in walking distance A vaporetto station is in front of the hotel so access is very easy too. Pricewise the hotel is correct for a very good standard. We had a room with seaside view which gives you a nice feeling of the city. The service in the hotel and crew have been excellent so we did not experience any problems. All our requests have been solved quick and friendly. So altogether the hotel can be definitely recommended.

Room Tip: rooms with view seaside front recommeded

Just returned from 3 very enjoyable days at Locanda Vivaldi. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. The breakfast was good. The room was lovely, warm & immaculately clean.
We upgraded to a "Lagoon view" which was well worth the extra.
The location is perfect for St Mark's Piazza and the vaporetti - only a few yards from the piers.
We would certainly recommend this hotel and look forward to returning.

Stayed at the Locanda Vivaldi & its good value for money.
Positives: Location is 100 metres from San Zacarria water bus station & 5 minutes away from St. Marks Square & 10 mins from Rialto bridge. Staff very helpful & speak very good English. They helped us book tickets to the "Venezia" musical, helped us with vital information on how to get where & were always at hand for any information required. The room was overlooking the grand canal and is good value for money. Breakfast was also good & the location is close to restaurants, bars & cafe's. There was a jacuzzi in our room which was a good relaxing experience after walking around (yes in venice you have to walk alot). They also tell you (accurately) the weather next day by leaving a card in your room along with chocolates. Free wifi in your room as well
Negatives: Only one - The internet speed was slow in our room, however it was fast in the lobby & this was the only reason i am leaving out one star in the review.

Would give it a 4 1/2 star.

Thoroughly recommended

Room Tip: Ask for the Grand Canal View & you will not be disappointed

I'm sorry for the internet speed, it should be the same in the whole hotel. Unfortunately the lines here in Italy are very poor for everybody.

We all look forward to welcome you soon again here in Venice, have a great day!

I returned from a works educational a few weeks ago and I must say that this is one of the best Hotels I have stayed in, in quite a while. All the staff were very friendly and couldnt do enough to help when needed, there was always someone on reception with information and maps provided. I stayed in room 102 overlooking the Laguna and the views were breathtaking. My room had a small balcony which was a lovely touch everything was very clean and the decor was exquisite, The bathroom was really spacious and had everything from Bathrobes to toiletries. there were also complimentary fruit and water on arrival. The breakfast Room was quaint and there was a array of different cooked and cold foods to choose from, definatley worth getting up for :-) The Hotel is in a great location to get around Venice whether you want to walk or go on the vaparetto to get around as the hotel is close to all major places of interest. Would definatley book Locanda Vivaldi hotel in the future.

Room Tip: Definatley upgrade to a Lagoon View Room

We don't speak Italian, but we needed contact information of a small Italian town Police Office. I asked the front desk for help. The gentleman was very helpful, he made a phone call to the Police Office, checked the town's website and found the information for us.

Breakfast was great, the location was excellent. The room was small had no views.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We got a standard triple that had a queen bed in one room and a single day bed in the other room. The breakfast was really great and the location ideal. Everything was very clean and well cared for.

That was not a Standard room anyway, you have been upgraded to a Classic Suite. We always do that when possible if you book directly through our website!
