Rialto Hotel, Venice

Fantastic location. Can't beat the Rialto Bridge in Venice. The price - well, it's Venice so $400/night is standard. The breakfast was very nice and we could eat outside viewing the canal. My only problem is that the elevator went to the second floor only. We had to go up 64 stairs - I counted. our room was at the top with the pigeons (literally). The room did look like the pictures - which is uncommon these days. It had a reasonable mini-bar fridge. It had a small tv and bathroom - standard size for Europe. Our room was larger than most we've stayed in in Europe. The hotel had internet for a fee but when we asked they didn't charge us. Easy, easy, easy to get to - just take the cheap valparetto (water bus) and stop at Rialto Bridge. Not having to search for the hotel in Venice was a bonus!

Great location in Venice

The hotel is located on the Grand Canal at the Rialto Bridge. Great location to see the sights of Venice. The hotel is nice but I thought that the room was very ordinary...nothing special. The staff was helpful and accomodating.

Top emplacement, mais cher en regard des standards européens !

Chambre correcte au 1er étage (302), mais vue sur cour intérieure avec échaffaudage et ruelle passante. Bruits du matin 7 h 30 au soir 22 h 30, dû à un appareil de ventilation ( cuisines du restaurant ? ) et aussi à des manutentions de poubelles par le personnel en début de matinée. Donc pas de grasse matinée ! Petit-déjeuner très correct, personnel très serviable et aimable en salle; un bémol en ce qui concerne les réceptionnistes. Déco de la chambre très kitsch, mais propre. Idéalement situé à tous points de vue ( navettes, vaporetto, restaurants, boutiques, visites...). Néanmoins cher ( 225 € / nuit ) mais c'est Venise en mai !

excellent choix

l'hôtel est très bien situé à la descente du bateau, très facile à trouver. A deux pas de la place St Marc et au centre de Venise pour tout visiter à pied ou en bateau. Le personnel est très accueillant, parlant français. Nous avons très apprécié notre visite à Murano avec le taxi personnel offert par l'hôtel ainsi que la visite de la fabrique du verre et de leurs oeuvres d'art. Hôtel à recommander sans hésiter.

Le grand point fort de cet hotel c evidemment son emplacement. en plein coeur de ville en face du pont rialto a quelques metres des boutiques restos etc vu d'exterieur aussi c pas mal du tout l'hotel presente bien. la chambre je m'attendais a mieux. assez petite. la salle d'eau bof bof... je m'attendais a beaucoup mieux venant d'un 4* niveau confort déco et espace. j'ai eut une chambre avec vue... sur un mur lol bref sinon tres bien dans l'ensemble a part la chambre. ps: bon a savoir : ils demandent 8 euros au check out pour la taxe locale
