#90 of 412 in Venice
Travelers' Choice
Locanda Vivaldi is a small boutique hotel facing the lagoon, just few steps from Saint Mark's Square. The location is just perfect, the view from the rooms and the rooftop terrace is simply amazing. The atmosphere of the hotel is intimate, we are the right choice for a romantic escape to Venice! And don't forget to enjoy our rooftop Bar & restaurant, you will enjoy a unique view on Saint MArk's Basin, on the Lagoon of Venice and on the life going on in Riva degli Schiavoni.

We loved this hotel. The staff was friendly and very kind. The roof top seating and view is spectacular! They served us cocktails and were attentive. We enjoyed the breakfast and coffee in the morning. The location is great, close to everything. We would definitely stay again. Thank you for helping make our trip memorable.

Perfect location with wonderful views. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Standard room was larger than you would expect, clean and light. Would recommend this hotel and will be returning in the near future.

After two and half years we have been back to two Venetian hotels we like most: Santa Chiara and Locanda Vivaldi. We are pleased to report that everything is back to normal, all services are in place, the old staff is as always super competent and friendly, ready to help with everything in Venice and around. The standard is high as always and even several improvements were introduced. There is still some pandemics regime, for instance face masks are obligatory at all public transports of Venice, but otherwise the place is as open and as friendly as always. The state of art underground car park at Santa Chiara (located close to the train station), the only private parking in Venice, works well. If you do not want to walk the bridges – there is still beautifully restored motorboat harbored at Santa Chiara. Locanda Vivaldi which faces the Laguna, entrance to Great Canal and offers one of most beautiful views from the top rooms and terrace, has also own little pier which is used for such transport. Everything in the proximity of both hotels is open and working as pre-pandemic, the public areas are just a little bit less crowded than usually at this time of year, which is actually good for tourists, because the access to all attractions is just easier.

I was very disappointed with this hotel I expected better room and view based on prices and over the top reviews I booked the standard room and was disappointed to find it's facing a wall!. Yes it didn't mention "with view" but i didn't expect the wall. They should show the room view on website for transparency Also it's a small romantic old style hotel but not the wow you see in the reviews. I got room 201, very spacious. To the left the bedroom with door and to the right a small seating area with sofa. Nice. Has fridge and safe. Missing kettle and coffee tea stuff Breakfast is served in a small dedicated area. No buffet.they take your order from the options they have and bring to you .was ok No restaurant for dinner. Just a small bar at the top. Pictures in the reviews are from the restaurants on the pier. Not in hotel. Fyi Also the hotel is facing the waterbus station, very busy and crowded. so i dont see why the great reviews as it must be noisy and not great views for rooms facing grand canal I had also an issue with hotel staff. I booked with pay at hotel option. Free cancellation up to a week before check-in. But hotel staff decided to block one room rate on my credit card even during free cancellation period. Unacceptable. Card is given to be used only if cancellation is done beyond a certain date. Don't have the right to freeze amounts on customer card weeks ahead just in case they'd cancel.

Amazing view of the lagoon, Ygor the bell hop is incredible, he multitasks as bell hop and makes and serves the breakfast and his attitude and kindness are a pleasure. The gentleman who worked the midnight shift on 4/13/2022, his name escapes me right now, was extremely courteous for our 3:30 am departing, wow! What service! Centrally located, close to everything, highly recommend!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Locanda Vivaldi. The location is excellent, only a short walk to St Marks square, Doge’s Palace, shops and restaurants etc. There is a vaporetto stop just outside where route 1 takes you along the central canal, plus other routes. The waterbus stop from and to the airport is also very close. We found the hotel staff welcoming, polite and helpful, from reception to breakfast room staff (didn’t see the room staff). The breakfast was plentiful with a choice of bacon/eggs, cheese/meets, fresh fruit salad (not tinned) and bread/croissants, tea/coffee, juices. These were all brought to your table. The roof terrace gives an excellent view over the lagoon. It is a bit dated. Drinks available on the terrace (don’t think it’s staffed all the time though). We had room with a side canal view which also had a side view across the lagoon. The room was plenty big enough though not huge and the bed was very comfortable. It was cleaned daily, clean towels daily (though I would have been happy to keep my towels for the 3 nights we were there). The bathroom was good except for the shower which was akin to a ferry shower cubicle. It was small, the side jets feeble and the water did not drain properly so was slippery. All being said, as this was a birthday treat, we had a good stay, a pity it wasn’t longer. We walked miles and packed in as much as we could, wear sturdy comfortable footwear! Have you seen Gregg Wallace’s big weekend program? Available to view on My5. He stayed here! Worth a look if you are intending to visit Venice.

Firstly, i want to say a big thankyou to Roberto & ALL his team. This trip with my wife has been postponed for 12 months because of covid restrictions which ment flght dates changed, holiday dates changed ( several times b.t.w.) hotels had to change, but all through this stressful process, All the staff managed to accommodate us right the way through to the bitter end! So i begin... 1stly, the pickup, taxi / boat...flawless (all arranged by the hotel) & very elegant arriving by beautiful boat. The hotel itself ( vivaldi) is in a very,very, enviable location with stunning views across the basin. The interior is immaculate, very clean & furnished in a very venetian style, & to a very high standard. Breakfast is also an extremely pleasant experience, with smartly dressed staff & elegant surroundings. So for the price we paid for 3 nights, this hotel has it all, & i can vouch for the sister hotels, stern & chiara, as we visited during our stay, are as suitably well equipped. I just think the views from locanda vivaldi can't be beat. This is a very well managed hotel group.

Excellent boutique hotel, two steps from Piazza San Marco. Ultra clean, comfortable and nicely decorated rooms in Venetian style, with an amazing view. The staff is very polite and helpful and breakfast has plenty of choices with a personal touch. As a bonus, the hotel offers a transfer from Piazzale Roma by boat, a romantic detail that makes the whole experience unique.

Very disappointing stay. This hotel does not have a restaurant for dinner reservations. The advertisement is extremely misleading and the rooftop terrace pictured is not open to guests. The picture of the double room with lagoon view fails to show the metal podium/ ramp placed directly outside the window (be prepared for the noise everytime someone walks on this ramp) I wish I paid more attention to the most recent review on this hotel "Sally T" as I would agree with this review. When I explained my disappointment to the receptionist on the lack of facilities available, his response was cold and uninviting. I definitely would not recommend this hotel or return here. We felt very uncomfortable as a young couple here, the staff were not very friendly or welcoming towards us. The Hotel is way overpriced and using the "views of the basin" as justification for their price point. Hotel Londra Palace, Savoia and Jolanda and Hotel Paganelli will offer the same views with less noise and much friendlier staff and are much more cost friendly. We had done a lot of research and actually booked this hotel, then cancelled (I should have trusted my gut) but rebooked as we wanted to have a little treat and didn't have an issue paying that bit extra for what we thought would be the experience we were booking for. The terrace, the bar, the restaurant were unavailable to us during our stay and the receptionists response was "sorry about that"no offer of a discount or a gesture towards our booking considering the facilities we booked for were not available. Please do your research and don't be charmed by the photos / description online. Venice itself was beautiful and we made the best of a bad hotel situation.

Impressively rude and bad behaviour and service. The lack of the English language knowledge is unacceptable for a crowded place like this - and probably the cause for their sharp abrupt answers even for information or the order! We were about to order some more products and their rudeness prevented us. The taste of the products was really good and the coffee a really enjoyable experience. It’s sad …
