Historical Traveler Reviews Almaviva House Venice
Happy and great stay
We booked room with 2 beds. The apartment was very well prepared an immaculate. The decor is very charming: nice old lamps on walls and very modern lamp on the floor. The rooms are very large abd bright. Separate bedroom, huge bed, great shower. We wanted to make only 2 days stay in VEnice but we were so impressed we decided to extend our stay. For the price and quality of Almaviva? Good price and good quality. We hope to be back one day. It would be a great room for our honeymoon.
Almaviva Residence!!! great stay!!!
I was recently in VEnice and I stayed in very new, just opend place. Is called Almaviva Residence and when I arrived there were still smtg to put in order, but this wasn't problem. The place is so well located, the manager of the palce so welcoming and available for all our requested that our trip was really great. I am sure that in a few month this place will be on the top. At moment they don't have web. I find it becasue asked in one restaurant in VEnice. VEry recomandable place.
Almaviva house is a wonderful place to stay, absolutely quiet and perfectly located.
Our room was very large, well equiped with a separated living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. Very nice staff too.
We will return for sure even if the price may seem just a bit high.
Charming stay at the Almaviva House in Venice
My partner and I spent three splendid days at the Almaviva House in Venice on a recent trip to Italy. This B&B is conveniently located near two vaporetto stops but on a very quiet residential street.
Our suite was newly rennovated and included a spotlessly clean modern bathroom with jacuzzi tub/shower, toilet and bidet. The bedroom was clean and very comfortable. The room itself had gorgeous views of the canal and street in front of the House.
Our host and his staff were extremely friendly and gracious. I would most definitely recommend the Almaviva House for anyone looking for quiet, clean alternative to conventional tourist hotels.
Almaviva House in Venice
Alma Viva House in Venice was an extraoridnary choice of places to stay in Venice. We stayed in the largest room in June of 2005 and the facilities were excellent. It featured a large bedroom and separate lounge area with a beautiful canal view, a huge bathroom with all the necessities and even a jacuzzi tub. With it's charming courtyard, relaxing backyard, and beautifully designed common areas, we felt like we had our own apartment in Venice (a nice apartment at that). Not to mention the extra personal care and attention from Arkadius and all the staff at the Alma Viva that ensured that we had a good breakfast, clean room, tips for seing Venice, and recommendations to excellent restaurants and bars. Alma Viva House made are trip to Venice truly magical! We would highly reccommend that you visit the enchanting city of Venice and if you do, we insist that you choose Alma Viva House for an exceptional experience, you won't be disappointed!
Almaviva offers a different part of the city
We recently spent a long, relaxing weekend at the Almaviva House in Venice and have already recommended it to our friends. Almaviva is located on the south side of the city, near the Accademia Bridge, but far enough from the throngs of tourists to make it feel like a completely different place.
Almaviva is located in an old, but very well maintained house, and the rooms (there are only a few) are clean and very spacious. We had a suite, which looked out over a small and quiet canal, but the standard rooms are nice as well with a view of the rear courtyard. It was so quiet that each morning we awoke to birds singing, the occasional church bell and the rustle of local boat traffic along the canal below.
Arkadius and Sara made us feel very much at home and were very generous in their recommendations for places to eat and drink in the neighbourhood. As a result, we had good food with good service at a decent price; not at all what we had been warned about with regards to Venetian fare. We also very much enjoyed the other guests who seemed, like us, to want a quiet place to relax and unwind.
If you planning a Venice trip, and want to avoid the tourist rush, have a look at this part of the city and see if Almaviva has room.
A very warm and friendly welcome is offered in Almaviva House.
The central lobby provides music and litterature, combined with a beautiful view on a cosy garden and a charming courtyard.
The location is ideal for those who want to reach everything by foot but prefer to be a little bit away from the San Marco tourist masses.
Good luck in our first trip to Venice
Through some friends we contacted with Almaviva for our first trip to Venice and god knows it wasn't disappointed at all.
It was a warm welcome in a nice and big space. It's placed in the centre, in a quiet neighbourhood near a small canal... the best option for those who live under the stress of a big city (like we are). We even get the chance to attend to the "boss" birthday party... A nice host, for sure.
We'll come back.

Triple "BBB" : Best Bed and Breakfast!!!
Triple "BBB" : Best Bed and Breakfast!!!
Yes. it is true. In Venice I was in four different places and this one was the best: clean, sure, familiar, pleasant.
The owner is very open for every kind of help for our party for 8 people. We had gondola ride, restaurant and also very personalized service inside this B&B. Surely we will return for our next birthday.

... sure why - but as such I felt a little nonchalant about the place, which doesn't do it justice. We saw the Statue of David, which was such a work of art. Marble statues are so impressive, and the gallery had a room full of them. Besides the statues, the other art was medieval religious paintings, which are far nicer to view in the churches they were taken from. Otherwise I fell they become a little same-same, and the context is lost. For €12, I could get into the Lourve ...
... Canal. One thing that was slightly disappointing was that there were loads of gondolas in the canal and the gondoliers all seemed to know each other and would sometimes pause to have a chat while we were still sitting in the gondola.
As we were in the gondola we passed lots of apartments and hotels. Even the one from the movie "The Tourist". It costs 8000 euros a night.
... we did all of the sights. St. Marks basilica, the bell tower, the grand canal cruise (using Rick Steve's audio guide), and generally wandered around. We bought a map but have never used it, just walked around exploring. We splurged on dinner and then sat at a cafe in the middle of a lit up St.Marks square listening to duelling orchestras, it was amazing! Today we will meet up with my parents friends Rick and Gabriella for a drink in the square before taking the train to ...
... of the lake for a lovely lunch lake-side. Wining and dining is exquisite around Como. And..Elaine, No we haven't seen any security with machine guns anywhere..We'll watch out though. and Di..No bum pinching these days in Italy..I remember that also, when I travelled in the 60's and 70's.. So after all the luxury of fine dining with white linen tablecloths and silver cutlery, we headed to Venice where we are tonight and we came here via Verona. Originally ...
... and Susanna Sent on Murano. We were treated to a visit to the upstairs workroom - the quiet and understated place that they retreat to. I don't think I would get much work done - it would be easy to while away the hours watching the sea and the passing parade. It was truly a beautiful space.
Like Brian, the gondola ride was a highlight. I still get goosebumps reliving hearing a beautiful young woman's voice filling the air between the old stone walls.
