The Hotel Savoia & Jolanda is a wonderful hotel that is close to the Venice lagoon and the rooms have a beautiful view of the lagoon. It is close to St Mark's square and to where Venice tours start. The water taxi stop is very close. It has a great restaurant with outstanding food and service. The rooms are large and comfortable.

Just a short walk from the Realto Bridge, a major tourist site, Ai Realto Hotel is simply a very valuable stylist and luxurious hotel; recently renovated from top to bottom, it has all the amenities one would expect from a 4-Star hotel. The design of the hotel is fascinating...warm and comfortable yet private and intimate. The staff is the star of this hotel, especially the concierge, wait and spa staff; the small but excellent work out room, the superb breakfast rooms and tailored menu, the outstanding dinner menu and staff, the pianist at 1900 hrs every night in the bar and the capability of the water taxi to drop off and pick you up at the hotel are reasons why I endorse Ai Reali Hotel.
If there is a drawback, it is finding your way to the hotel after the first venture to the sideways of Venice; but one locates a major landmark, and it is easy thereafter; but then just walk towards the Realto Bridge and one is within a stone's throw from the hotel.
Finally, the quiet location of the hotel while in the middle of a constant moving swarm of people is why this hotel, Ai Realto, is a hidden gem.

This hotel is next to Vivaldi's Church and very close to St Marks Square. It was very quiet during our stay, the staff are very friendly, hotel is very clean and full of beautiful Murano glass. Would definitely stay here again.
great hotel, great location - although a little difficult to find (had to update the location on google maps). room was acceptable size, clean, comfortable and decent bathroom. very high quality breakfast
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.
