"Ideal Location - central without being too central"
The Ai Reali is an exceptional hotel situated central to all tourist attractions without being right on top of any of them. Everything is a short stroll away and this makes it ideal for anyone visiting Venice. It has its own mooring for water taxi's and gondola's, which I would recommend doing at least once. The staff could not have been more helpful and the rooms are sumptuous and exquisite.
We stayed here for three nights in the junior suite with our three year old. The heat and the many bridges in the city meant we found it hard to walk around too much with the buggy in tow. So whilst we saw much of the city in a water taxi and did a fair share of walking we spent many hours in this lovely hotel. Yes it expensive but u get what you pay for. The hotel is not too large to be just another face and there was a definite personal touch. The met restaurant whilst pricey the food was good and the service impeccable so thank you Micheal who went the extra mile to accomadate my daughter. And there was a nice vibe in the orient bar who had the most lovely staff who's names I can't all remember but thank you Bruno. The staff are a credit to this quirky well furnished hotel and I would most definitely recommend it.
One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in with a picturesque view right outside. Because it is along the water and near San Marco , you can get to anywhere you need to immediately. The breakfast offered was amazing and started out days out on a great note. Looking back I have no complaints and only the best memories. The only hotel we stayed at that greeted us with champagne due to our honeymoon. These are the things that will last a lifetime. I just recommend this place to a friend thinking about going over would to anyone out there
Selected from the Internet, we took a chance on this hotel. Turned out to be on the lagoon next to St. Mark's. Recently refurbished room overlooking the lagoon was excellent and the staff were very good. Very good value for money and we will definitely go back.
Extremely comfortable room, lovely breakfast, free mini bar restocked every 2 days. Complimentary coffee, juice and snacks available throughout the afternoon. However, by far the best part was their excellent customer service! The staff could not have been more helpful, they printed tickets for us, recommended restaurants and arranged trips for us. They were also really friendly. Our room looked over a beautiful canal and the hotel is very well positioned for all the major attractions.
Thank you to all the staff!
Bordering San Marco and the Rialto and stretching east to some of Venice's quietest greenest parts, Castello is the city's most varied 'sestiere'. Its most famous aspect is the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront next to the Bridge of Sighs, with picture-postcard views onto the lagoon. Yet a few yards from the tourist hoards, the backstreets are quiet and typically Venetian. There are many outstanding churches and art collections in this area.
