My wife and I stayed at the Rialto hotel for 3 nights and returned yesterday. I was a bit concerned having read the reviews but we were very happy with our choice. Nov is not the best month with being the wettest month in Venice and there was some very high tides but the experience of seeing Venice was fanstastic. The hotel was very clean and the reception staff very helpful.
Tips : Catch the Alilaguna water buses from the airport to the hotel. (15 euro each) and it stops outside the hotel.
Pay the extra for a canal view (We payed 50 euro extra per night) room 404, ask for second floor
The breakfast is served until 1030 hrs and everthing that is set out is part of the buffet. There is plenty to eat and is varied and you don't need to pay for the extra breakfast (eggs and bacon).
Use the ACTV 12 hr to get around Venice (18 euro each) or you will pay 7 euro for 1 hr. Its worth paying for the longer hrs. These can be obtained from the water bus stop near the hotel.
I would recommend the Mama pizza restaurant, its near the hotel and is freindly and not expensive. The reception staff will direct you.
Dont eat at the restaurant that is over the bridge, it was expensive.
Visit the Doge.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located right in the centre, overlooking the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge. Picture yourself sitting at your junior suite window gazing out at the Rialto Bridge, probably the most famous landmark in Venice. Below, a steady stream of gondolas and boats make their way along the Grand Canal and the water-buses stop a few paces away so that the whole of Venice is at your disposal. ... more less
