“Great honeymoon stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We had a great honeymoon stay at Locanda Vivaldi. It was perfectly situated on the lagoon, close to Saint Mark's Square, and the view from our room was amazing. The staff couldn't have helped more, helping to book good restaurants and offer advice when needed. Whilst quite an expensive hotel, the experience was well worth it overall!

Great location, friendly, helpful staff at front desk, in the wonderful roof top bar and restaurant and the lovely lady in the breakfast room.
Small but everything you need for a base to explore venice.

Now the big BUT room 210

The hotel airconditioning unit is mounted on a steel structure outside above the back window, it was VERY loud, even with the double glazed window & shutters, and went on all night. It would stop for 10 minutes and then just as you think you might be able to drop off it starts again. I have never been so distressed trying to sleep. At 2:10am I went down to reception, the night manager did not seem at all suprised to see me and didn't need to be told what the noise was, he was very helpful and gave me the key to a very lovely room for the rest of the night and we moved to another room in the morning (room 101 has a leaky bath!) The staff could not have been more helpful, but why were we, why is anyone, given this room to try to sleep in?
It is a family joke that I can sleep instantly and through anything, except room 210.

The rest of our stay was perfect.

Room Tip: 202 amazing, 101 quiet, 210 don't accept it.

Buongiorno!

Thank you for your very kind review.
I'm sorry that you have not been able to sleep in room 210, but let me say that we sold that room a thousand times since the opening of the hotel and just few people complained about the noise.

Fact is that we are all different, and what is noisy for ma can be music for you (and opposite). There are people who don't like to have a room facing the canal because of the boat noise, there are people who like it. Venetian for example complaint for the noise of the steps (no kiidn') of the people who walk under their windows...
The only solution is to let us know what your preference are, but we need to know them in advance. Otherwise the fact that we assign you the right room is just a question of chance.

Anyway I'm happy we have been able to find you another room at that time in the night (leak has been fixed, thank you!).

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

This Hotel was luxurious in all respects. The staff was most kind and efficient.
It is ideally located and easy to get to all the sites from there.
The recommendation of a seafood restaurant was out of this world.
Overall it was a 5 star in every way.
Thank you.

We were recommended this hotel by a friend and stayed for a week in early May 2013. It is well situated, with good views over the lagoon. St Mark's square just a few minutes' walk away.
The buffet breakfast was excellent and we ate on the terrace a couple of times with amazing views across to St Giorgi Maggiore. The room was extremely well appointed, comfortable and spacious.
One could spend much more on a hotel in Venice but we felt the Vivaldi offered great value for money. The staff we more than happy to help us plan our days out.
We would definitely stay there again.

We knew we chose well when the water bus dropped us off and we were metres away from the doorstep! Room was great (shame we couldn't get the canal view), but they are limited. Service was exceptional, no request to hard and staff went out of the way to assist. Made use of the courtesy taxi to Murano (that stops at the hotels own launch), and their recommendations on some of the quiter areas of Venice. The terrace dinner was exceptional and the restaurant manager fantastic. Close to...Everything!

Room Tip: Book early and get the canal view

Everything we could ask for. Great location near St Marks, on the waterfront with it's own taxi dock on the side canal. Great staff and good food. The rooftop restaurant was an excellent place for sundowners and dinner. Our room was tastefully decorated, very comfortable and definitely worth the upgrade to the waterfront room. Highly recommended.

Considering the location, view, quality of room and service – it is still one of the best places in Venice. Even in the city so much oriented towards tourists as Venice it is hard to find a hotel so strategically located, close to main attractions and with the view of the lagoon and entrance to Canale Grande. And friendly and professional staff makes every our visit as reunion with friends. This year change is own restaurant open daily for dinners. Locanda Vivaldi belongs to the chain of three hotels (Santa Chiara and Palazzo Stern, all located in different parts of the city but always at the water), there is a cooperation with benefits to the guests. For instance the chain makes own, homemade, fresh food, including bread, pasta and other products. There is a 60 years old, beautifully restored Venation motorboat, which – on certain conditions allowed by local regulations – might serve hotel clients. And the May-new is the new web page (www.locandavivaldi.it). See photos there, the views are also part of explanation of our returns to this hotel.
