The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Modern, clean, and well maintained space in a chic area of town, easily accessible from St Mark's and the Vaporetto. As others noted, shared (but nice) bathrooms and a well stocked kitchen. Very comfortable beds! (memory foam)

  • Chiara and Adriano are great hosts, providing us with excellent hospitality from booking through the end of our stay in Venice. We were provided with very detailed and easy to follow directions from the railway station to the B&B. Everything (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining area) was clean and what we needed for our trip to Venice.

  • We had a wonderful 4 days at Antics Riva. Chiara and Adriano communicated well so we had no trouble finding the apartment, and they suggested an excellent restaurant for our last night. The apartment is beautiful, spotlessly clean and with delicious and plentiful provisions for breakfast. It is centrally located to San Marco and Rialto and on a beautiful little canal. I would thoroughly recommend this B & B to couples or small family groups. Ciao and grazie Chiara and Adriano.

  • Excellent location. Beautifully furnished apartment. Chiara was very prompt in responding to my queries and also very helpful in giving us suggestions. The room was a little small but the comfortable bed made up for the size! The only downside was that the bathroom had to be shared. Excellent breakfast. All in all, we had an excellent stay at Antica Riva.

  • 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 .

  • 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!
