Locanda Vivaldi, named after the famous composer who used to own the building, is a small and intimate boutique hotel, with a homely feel and an old-world charm. This family run hotel offers a peaceful retreat in Venice’s bustling centre, with attentive staff, traditional décor and a rooftop terrace with stunning views over Saint Mark’s Basin.

Sat on the waterfront promenade of Riva degli Schiavoni, a stone’s throw from Saint Mark’s square, the heart of Venice is on the hotel’s doorstep. From here, you can visit Saint Mark’s Basilica, Palazzo Ducale and the Bridge of Sighs within 500 metres of the hotel. The Castello District is behind the hotel, offering an authentically Venetian charm, and many more iconic sights are within walking distance. Arrive at the hotel’s private water taxi dock or catch a water taxi from the nearby stops.

Rooms are each unique in layout and style, though all are decorated in a traditional Venetian style, with elaborately patterned textiles and warm colours. Standard rooms enjoy views of the inner courtyard or Rio dei Greci canal, while Lagoon View rooms have 180-degree views of Saint Mark’s Basin and Giudecca Island.
