I’d like to say thank you to the hotel locanda Vivaldi staff! My boyfriend and I had an amazing time staying in your hotel. The bed was nice, soft pillows, and very clean. The view in our room 206 is great so if you can get this room I recommend!!

We stayed at this hotel on a trip to Venice to celebrate a birthday- the hotel was clean and tidy - the room was very nice with views of landmarks- it is in the San Marco district and could not be better situated. Staff were very friendly and helpful- room was always cleaned to an exceptionally high standard. Would recommend this hotel to anyone

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Locanda Vivaldi. Just the perfect location, lovely view and very helpful staff. We travelled as a family of four (2 adults and an 11 and 8 year old) and the Quad room was an adequate size for us with enough room for our suitcases and a little movement. Breakfast was delicious. Superb coffee and a good continental breakfast that filled us up. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations. The room rate was pricey but probably represents a) Venice and b) the excellent location, which was unbeatable. Everything we needed was within walking distance, with the most amazing water views. I'd return again in a heartbeat.

Choose this small boutique hotel and must say surprised me a lot rooms are nice sized and clean. Locations n is excellent two mins walk from st Marcus square so no need to rely on water taxis to go out to eat. Breakfast was decent and do choose a room with view of canal. Service was very good thank you mr Fabio and if u need anything they will do their best to help if possible. Room has no ironing facilities and coffee or tea service but they will bring g it for you if u ask. Only major drawback was in our room the Internet was very slow and not the best . I would definitely stay at this hotel again . They do organize free transfer from train station and water taxi from airport but best is to check the options with them .

Clean room, albeit small. Was close to all major tourist spots. Breakfast was basic, cosy dining room as expected. Staff friendly and unobtrusive. You pay for the location - close to San Marco vaporetto and square.

Have stayed here once before about 5 years ago. Had the room next door and both face the lagoon. The view is stunning and the hotel position is excellent for the Vaporetto stop for San Zaccaria. If you’re looking to stop in a small boutique hotel, that does an excellent breakfast together with the usual “over the top” Venetian decorations, then this is for you. Couple of downsides; no restaurant for evening meals, and when we stopped this time the “Bar Gritti” was closed, or rather the door was open but nothing happening inside, no staff, no drinks etc. This is despite a sign in the lift saying it was open in the afternoons and evenings. I must point out something that became very important for our visit. We went at New Year especially for the fireworks, which are always stunning. This year they had moved the fireworks ‘left’ along the lagoon, which was not advertised anywhere and we found by accident. Fortuitously this proved a wonderful change as the fireworks were set off pretty much in front of the hotel and the roof terrace was opened especially and we booked a table and had a ringside seat, with Prosecco and Pannetone as an accompaniment. Brilliant light show again this year, and made the crowding a distant problem, although the influx of visitors was as usual, incredible. We spent 5 nights at Locanda Vivaldi and the room and facilities were as expected. The bed was a bit hard, and quite small. The only issue was a leaking overflow on the bath which was fixed quickly. No other issues. If you can get the room numbered 102 then you will have a small balcony which is lovely. One member of the reception team was a little curt and somewhat rude when we reported the minor bath issue, but generally the reception staff are great; really helpful and will gladly recommend some excellent restaurants. Breakfast staff are also exceptionally helpful, not at all over-bearing and really pleasant first thing in the morning! Locanda Vivaldi is a really special place; it’s a pity it doesn’t offer the same amenities as the Metropole (next door) but its charm endures.

Great location, just 2 minutes walking from Saint Mark's square We stayed in this boutique hotel for new Year's Eve Outstanding view from the terrace on the third floor Helpful and friendly staff Comfortable and clean room Excellent breakfast with good variety of food We'll return for sure to this hotel when back to Venice !!!

There is nothing better than wake up in the morning with the view over the S. Mark Basin!!!Perfect location,situated 5 minutes walking distance from S.mark square, it has a private pier for the taxi, the staff is very kindly and friendly!! The best experience was to eat at the restaurant in the terrace that overlooks the S. Mark Basin! I recommend it!! Albert
