Set in a prime position on the Grand Canal, Locanda Vivaldi is an intimate hotel with excellent views and classic décor. The hotel is named after Antonio Vivaldi, the renowned composer who taught the violin two doors away (now the Hotel Metropole). The Basilica, the Doges Palace and St Mark's Square are all only a 5-minute walk away (ideal for beating the queues in the morning) and the hotel has its own mooring for water taxi pick-ups. The busier public water bus also stops nearby.
Location aside, the property's main draw is its vast terrace that overlooks the Grand Canal and has views from the Lido all the way to the columns in St Mark's Square. There's a bar and restaurant here that opens in the evening from April-October, exclusively for hotel guests.
In the mornings, a rich Venetian breakfast can be delivered to guests' rooms (for no extra charge) or taken in the peach-coloured breakfast room, which is dressed with Murano glass chandeliers and tablecloths on pretty round tables. There's also a snug underground bar, with cosy sofas and beamed ceilings, set off the leafy courtyard.
The interiors are dramatic -- think patterned wallpaper, antique furniture and a baroque colour scheme -- and the corridors are hung with theatrical posters and Venetian carnival masks. Superior rooms have some of the best views over the San Marco basin.
