Going to Venice for our 30th anniversary was a big deal for us, but we were dithering about hotel choice. A good friend and his wife recommended Locanda Vivaldi -- and then a separate recommendation for this place came at us from another source. That sealed our decision. It turned out to be the ideal choice.
Venice itself was amazing -- with bright sunshine, blue skies and no rain. Every day started by pulling open our curtains and looking out at the wonderful view. After a satisfying breakfast, we'd go out around the city -- for which the hotel is perfectly positioned.
Bed was comfy -- pillows soft -- room very well appointed -- free wi-fi -- and staff was alert, but very discreet. (We never even saw the room cleaners.) Reception staff were extremely helpful.
Our only minor complaint was that the lift didn't work for the first 2 days of our 4 day stay. But, the exercise of climbing 2 flights was good for us -- and lift really appreciated when it was repaired.
We hope to return to Venice as soon as possible -- and look forward to staying at the Locanda Vivaldi. Meanwhile, we wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who's headed to Venice!
