Overlooking the lagoon waters of St. Mark's basin, just 300 metres from St. Mark's Square, the Hotel Locanda Vivaldi is a small, regal, townhouse hotel, completely renovated yet maintaining many antique features. The hotel is in an excellent, central position for exploring the winding streets and sparkling canals of the city; St. Mark's Square, the Doge's Palace and the famous clock tower are all 300 metres away, with the Rialto and Accademia bridges 1.5 kilometres distance. Venice Marco Polo Airport is 13 kilometres away, an approximate driving time of 30 minutes.
The hotel's Bar Gritti serves characteristic dishes of Italy in an intimate atmosphere with marbled flooring and a beamed ceiling, and features a small garden and terrace with panoramic views of the lagoon and Venice. Guests can disembark at the private wharf, relax in the refined and antique-rich interior with coffee and complimentary newspapers by the fireplace in the lobby, and borrow a book from the library. Multilingual staff at the 24-hour front desk and concierge desk can offer information on Venice and help book tours and tickets, and high-speed Internet access is available in public areas.
The 27 guestrooms, over three floors, feature Imperial-style decor with original features, chandeliers, Murano glass, gold leaf, and antique ornamentation and furniture. All offer air conditioning, minibars, hair dryers, safes, piped music, remote lighting/drapery controls and satellite television. Breakfast is available for a surcharge.
