The B&B Antica Riva is situated in the heart of Venice just a few steps away from Saint Mark’s Square and 5 minutes walk from Rialto Bridge.
The structure, located on the first floor of an elegant building of the 17th Century, has been completely restored in all respects to provide a pleasant and relaxing environment.
Close to major historical monuments including Saint Mark’s Basilica, Palazzo Ducale, the Bridge of Sighs and the Basilica of San Giovanni e Paolo, B&B Antica Riva welcomes you to a young and dynamic atmosphere, with warm hospitality. The pleasant and informal rooms make it the ideal place for an enjoyable, romantic holiday in the most beautiful city in the world.
The B&B is very well maintained and offers to its guests a buffet breakfast served in typical Italian style with various charming rooms, some overlooking a lovely courtyard, others with beautiful views over characteristic canals.
The BLUE ROOM (AZZURRA) available to our guests is a 14sqm bedroom, facing over a typical Venetian canal. It is equipped with air-conditioning or individually controlled heating, safe, tv led and free WiFi (there is the possibility to add an extra bed).
In our B&B 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are available to guests, one with shower, the other with tub, both equipped with hairdryer and towel warmer.
The B&B Antica Riva is easily reached by public transport both from the Railway Station “Saint Lucia” or from the car terminal at Piazzale Roma, as well as from the airport Marco Polo (by waterbus Alilaguna, Red Line). It is a few minutes walk from the waterbus stop San Zaccaria (near Saint Mark’s Square) from where ferries depart for the airport Marco Polo, Lido with its beach resorts, the island of Murano, Giudecca, St. George’s Island and for the coast of Cavallino, from where Jesolo Lido, with its famous beaches, can be reached easily.
Nice room, great location. Very clean & comfortable bed.
A bit noisy (with shared bathroom next door and other shared spaces).
Antica Riva is a perfect location just a few minutes walk from St Marks Square.
The room was pretty, spotlessly clean with a beautiful view of the canal. The bed was so comfortable. The self service breakfast was excellent and it was great to have constant access to tea, coffee , juice, biscuits etc..
Chiara was helpful in helping me plan my stay with plenty of restaurant recommendations prior to my arrival and any messages or questions were always promptly answered.
I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. Its perfect .
Great location! Right near st marks square. The apartment is spacious and cleaned every day! Free breakfast in the morning is a bonus. Lovely stay at antica riva
Beautiful place on a canal. Brilliant breakfast each morning set up for self service. Very close to everything, especially the Rialto Bridge and Saint Mark's Basilica. Within a two minute stroll you will find yourself at two of the best gelateria's in Venice. The bnb was clean, fresh and spacious. We were greeted by Laura whom gave us some insiders tips on Venice, very helpful. Would definitely stay again!
Loved the apartment, it's only 5 minutes walk from the St. Marco's square but hidden in a peaceful lane by the river, away from the crowd. The room is modern and clean, and the kitchen is so lovely. Strongly recommend to travellers who want a nice/comfy stay in Venice.
B&B Antica Riva is a great lodging, clean, spacious, and inviting. We were about an hour late due to getting a little lost, but the host there was ready to take us in, once we arrived and showed us everything we needed to know. The bathrooms (two shared for three rooms) were very clean and modern, with soap and towel provided. The beds were very comfortable with clean sheets. The amount of snacks and food available were great for breakfast. I would highly recommend for a stay in Venice.
Absolutely stunning! This location was a bit tricky to find but we were completely impressed by the decorations as it was fully renovated with high-end finishes throughout. The full fridge and full breakfast accommodations was a very pleasant surprise and we loved every moment of it. This was definitely the cherry on top that made our visit to Venice unforgettable! Chiara is also very helpful when we asked him about Venice and was very nice in person. Highly recommended!
One of the best ever B&B's we stayed at and definitely one of the most professionally run ones on air B&B. The whole place was newly renovated and each room is equipped with wifi, tv and even a safe! What's more, there was a fairly comprehensive breakfast including cereal, breads and spreads as well as a whole lot of juice options.
Our initial concern was that we wld have to share the washrooms but wasn't an issue at all as the washrooms were kept extremely clean.
Also couldn't have asked for a better location, 5 min from St Marco and 10 min from Rialto bridge
Amazing experience. The location was perfect, the breakfast was delicious and the place was super clean. Check in went smoothly and we could not recommend this place highly enough. We will definitely be staying here again next time we come to Venice.
I found that the airbnb's in Europe were not quite as luxurious as some in the United States. Not Antica Riva, loved it! What a gem. I would stay there again in a heart beat.
