Where to Stay in Venice, Italy: The Elegant Hotel Locanda Vivaldi

by Accommodations, Italy15 comments

As magnificent and as romantic as Venice itself, Hotel Locanda Vivaldi [website] is sure to make anyone’s stay the best that it can be!

Smacked right in the heart of the city, you should not let its size fool you because the luxury and exclusivity it exudes will instantly win you over from the moment that you step in its grounds. I had the pleasure to spend my nights here and it was an enchanting experience that I will forever remember! Here’s why…

Hotel Locanda Vivaldi

Hotel Locanda Vivaldi

Historic Dwelling. Hotel Locanda Vivaldi was once the home of Antonio Vivaldi, a famous Italian Baroque composer. That being said, you’ll surely be charmed to know that this lush hotel reflects such an important and rich heritage!

Prime Location. Located in Riva degli Schiavoni, the hotel is right in front of the St. Mark’s Basin, and also a short walk away from the Square — in short, all of the top sights in the city can be easily reached by foot!

Breathtaking Views. Right from the moment that I stepped foot in the hotel’s private boat and up to when I opened the windows of my room, I was in complete and utter awe with the sweeping views that surrounded me. After all, Locanda Vivaldi also has the perfect panoramic vantage point over Rio dei Greci, Lido of Venice, and Giudecca!

Easy Access. The hotel also has its own private docking place so you can swiftly arrive here via taxi. What’s more, it is easily reached and accessed thanks to the nearby public transportation dock that’s just right in front of the entrance.


Hotel Locanda Vivaldi: Venetian Room
Boutique Hotel

The majority of the hotels in Venice are decorated in the Venetian traditional style, and you bet that Hotel Locanda Vivaldi did not skimp on exuding the best luxurious features that it can offer!

With over 27 rooms, each of them are decorated with rich colored fabrics, oriental carpets, Murano-unique glasses, vases, and chandeliers among many others. The choices that you have are as follows:

The biggest suite has 2 separate rooms each with an en-suite bathroom and Jacuzzi bath and a terrace overlooking Rio dei Greci. The other two have a view of the inner courtyard with 2 separate rooms and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi.

Junior Suite
Red Room (with a terrace overlooking the Basin of St. Mark) and Green Room (overlooking the inner courtyard)

All 11 of these rooms overlook St. Mark’s Basin and are each equipped with a Jacuzzi bath.

(11 rooms) Overlooking either the canal Rio dei Greci or the inner courtyard.

St Marks Basin

TIP: Feel free to ask for an upgrade on your room because the staff is more than willing to do it for you especially if a room is available.

NOTE: As a standard, all rooms have satellite TV, telephone, air-conditioning, a safe, mini bar, hairdryer, showers or Jacuzzi baths.


Breakfast Hall

Breakfast Hall. With both European and Western choices, breakfast is served from 7:30Am to 10:30AM at this hall located near the lobby. You can also have your breakfast in your room without a price surcharge — a sweet deal so that you can enjoy your meal whilst you enjoy the views right from the comfort of your room!

Restaurant Prete Rosso and Panoramic Terrace. Open in the summer from April to October (7PM to 12AM), this restaurant offers the best Venetian dishes that you could ever ask for! It’s always best to book your table in front of Saint Mark’s Square as it is the best spot! Come at nighttime, they offer a bar service here too; rest assured, you can enjoy the terrace at any time of the year.

Bar Gritti. This is the hotel’s winter lounge that offers a great variety of drinks from beers to wines!


24h Reception. Hotel Locanda Vivaldi’s people were one of the most attentive and friendliest hotel staff that I have ever dealt with! Just call them up whenever you want and they’ll be at your beck and call to assist you on your every need — may that be transport service assistance, guided excursions, tickets, events, baby sitting, laundry services, and more!

Taxi Service. Upon your request, Locanda Vivaldi can call upon a taxi service to sweep you off to any destination. BUT the good news is: as a guest of the hotel, you can call upon their private wooden vintage boat to access 2 of their other hotels, namely: Santa Chiara Hotel and Palazzo Stern — mind you, Palazzo Stern is near the Grand Canal, while Santa Chiara Hotel is near to Venice’s central station. So upon your arrival in Venice, feel free to call the hotel to arrange your boat.

    I found you when I was looking for independent reviews of Travel Smith S2 hybrid suitcases. Read part of your bio and it impressed me how courageous you were for quitting your traditional job and be a nomad.
    Anyway , I decided to browse and see if you have written anything about the places my husband and I with a group are visiting soon and voila saw Venice where I will celebrate my 61st birthday. Our hotels are booked by the tour hosts ( it’s a specific study tour) . However , I agree with the previous comment that the condition of the hotel room is not as memorable when you have views like those you captured in the photos.
    Thanks. Looking forward to actually experi3ncing it in person.
