The last two days of our two week Italian adventure were spent in Venice at the Hotel Ai Reali. Our once in a lifetime trip could not have ended in a better way. The hotel was spectacular....lovingly restored keeping its ancient beauty while considering the comfort and needs of today's travelers. Our room, 306, was large with a stunning black marble bathroom, an expansive closet/dressing area, lovely Venetian glass light fixtures, and beautiful linens.
The staff at this hotel is extremely personable, well trained, and happy to help with anything you may need from making dinner reservations to booking the water taxi to the airport. We took advantage of the patio one afternoon, and stopped in the charming bar for a nightcap each night before bed.
When we booked our room, the less costly rooms were unavailable, so we upgraded to the deluxe room. Do yourself a favor and do the same. Everything in Venice is very pricey, so in the scheme of things, this hotel gives you a lot for your money. If I ever return to Venice, I will look forward to my stay at the Ai Reali.
