We enjoyed our stay, it is more of a B&B experience than a hotel. The rooms were clean and the location was amazing, just a couple of mins stroll to the Rialto bridge. We stayed in the triple room which was fantastic as the 3rd bed has its own room. Great for us with an older child. Rooms are air... More

Like the other posts read, you have to check in at a separate Hotel. Not a big deal, they email you a map. The streets in Venice are maze-like so finding the check-in hotel was a bit confusing. Finding Rio Alto was not. The room was clean. There is noise on the canal...just as you would expecting a street. I... More

My wife and I visited this beautiful place while visiting Family in Formia Italy. The hospitality was great and check in and out was smooth. The room was spotless with easy access to food and coffee and shops, wifi was very good, with a great view of the canal as the gondola ferried people through the city. The train station... More

Stayed in the triple, which was quite large- the single bed had its own room. Clean and quiet. Overlooked a canal. Great location- 2 minutes from Rialto bridge and water bus stops and 10 mins from San Marco. Very kind and helpful front desk clerks who went out of their way to assist us.

The Inn was clean, well equiped, cosy.Our room was spacious, it had a big bathroom,it was quiet,VERY near the Rialto Bridge and all the shops one could need were within a 200 meters range.The staff was polite and helpfull . We paid a very reasonable price. Only disadvantage the lack of elevator.

From the direction we got of the web we found Rio Alto's front door. With 3 guys sitting on the step to get free wifi from the shop next door. Spent the next 15 minute trying to find the hotel where we needed to check in. Supposedly 30 meter away. Actually 100 meters away through the lane-ways ( start with... More

We arrived via train, then took line 2 on the vaporettos, getting off at the Rialto bridge (make sure you go in the correct direction. Many stops have different cabins for different directions and we made the mistake once of getting on the wrong one). They have a map on their website that gives pretty good directions on how to...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Rio Alto in Venice! We stayed 3 nights in all and can't say one bad thing about this place. We arrived much earlier than our check in time but the concierge was able to escort us to our room personally and let us in anyways. We didnt try the WiFi since it wasn't... More
