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.

... and gorgeous. I'm sure the churches and museums are great but we just enjoyed the city from the streets and canals.
The next morning we had a crazy early flight back to Amsterdam and then to Cork. Our flights were delayed due to fog but we got home with enough time to do several loads of laundry and go to the grocery store. We had somewhere close to 700 photos on the camera so we really aren't sharing that many! ...
... entrance. For those that know where Wellington Cruise ships berth
Splits terminals were closer to town about the same distance from the ship to
the Wellington Railway Station. This was our closest port to an actual town
that we had had so far. The small distance out of the gates to meet Jelena and
then to find some shade was the first priority for all as the heat was well
above 35 degrees already, when your female guide is sweating it must be hot.
Once we got to ...

Arriving back David heads off to have a meeting with the manager of the hotel (he is not happy with a few things) whilst I head up to the room. Bellini in hand I savour the hour or so of solitude soaking in a bath (again), accompanied by Robbie Williams playing on my Rockbox. David returns and informs me he has had a very productive meeting with the ...
The girl's trip begins today! Both of us up early (Michelle at 3:30am - eek, and Sherry at 5:30am), showered packed and ready to go at 7:20am.
Here comes the first glitch... even though I had emailed our taxi driver with Michelle's hotel address he only paid attention to the 'Novotel' bit and started heading into the city. I was onto it quickly though and we got there only about 5mins later than anticipated.
Now comes the second glitch... I thought we ...
... hotel wife wasn’t great. We were having trouble making contact with Lafe and others while in Italy because most of the time we were out doing things without Wi-Fi when they were awake and we were asleep when they were available. Really good lunch.
Full bellies and we were ready to walk some more. That is really all we did. We walked and looked and window shopped and walked some more. It was more than chilly, in fact we bought Jeff a scarf and I ...
