When planning our trip to Italy (with a 2 day stay in Venice), a friend recommended staying at Hotel Rialto as she had on her trip the year before. I'm so glad we took her advice. The location was great (a water taxi ride down the grand canal and about a 20 step walk to the hotel off of the drop off site). This is very helpful when traveling with luggage. Check-in was easy, we were on the 2nd floor - yes there were some stairs, but we had help bringing our luggage up. After getting into our room (somewhat small, but perfect for our needs - clean, our own bathroom and a good bed), we had a knock on the door with a complimentary bottle of Prosecco! A very nice touch! The only piece that I would have to say was not up to par was the look outside our window. We were on the inside part - so no view of the canal - but it was also full of construction. Luckily, that is not as big of a deal for us, we just took advantage of the panoramic view from the hotel rooftop (see below).
Since Breakfast was included, we decided to eat there and I'm glad we did. It was very good with choices of coffee/latte/cappuccino, bread, meats, cheese, fruits, pastries, yogurt and cereal. The location was great for walking to the main sights and we ate dinner nearby (there were many good choices). Overall, this hotel was ideal for what we needed and I would recommend it just as my friend did for me. Also, make sure to go up to the panoramic rooftop at the hotel. You can get a get shot of the Rialto Bridge and the canal.
- 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
