Elegant and welcoming boutique hotel in an old palazzo, just 5 minutes from Rialto bridge, but completely quiet. Very friendly and attentive staff, both at the reception and the restaurant & bar. We had a Deluxe room on the third floor, directly looking out to a small canal. The room actually was kind of a junior suite with a spacious...

Amazing visit to Venice and this hotel and the service from the staff made our trip outstanding. This was a special trip for my 50th birthday. We arrived by water taxi landing at the side of Rialto bridge which is 3 minute walk away from the hotel. The hotel is just off the main street. We were delayed and did...

We are a family of 5 (we have three boys aged 20, 18 and 14). The boys also loved the hotel. We were thrilled with our rooms (rooms 304 and...

We stayed here for a week in room 204. We had a wonderful time in Venice and much of this was down to the hotel. On the positive side 1. The hotel is very well located and accessible from the water side. It is a short walk to Rialto Bridge and the Doges Palace and St Marco Basilica. Getting to...

Perfect location a 3 minute walk to Rialto Bridge and a 5 min walk to St Marks square. Breakfast was divine, plenty of choice. Staff were super friendly and helpful. The bar, outside area and decor were just brilliant. Definitely a couples hotel. Only 30 or so rooms so there is no hustle and bustle. Gondola ride straight from hotels...

I can not praise this Hotel highly enough. It is beautiful with friendly and knowable staff. Among other things they recommended The Venice Deluxe grand tour with Antonio and if this is your first time in Venice, it is worth every penny. We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms ( no 314) and can highly recommend it. The bed...

Room was very small. Glasses and cups were dirty and merely replaced on the coaster the following day. Air con/ heating was far too hot or non existent. One of reception staff was very snooty and dismissive. the younger one was very sure of himself too but insisted on speaking English and failed to understand me twice. Location brilliant tho....

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.

Customers can easily arrive or depart by private transportation. In case you prefer to user the public transportation, the ferry stop of Rialto is only 150 metres away. Ferry line “Alilaguna” arriving and departing from the airport also stops in Rialto.The Hotel Ai Reali is a 4 stars hotel S offering all the services you normally find in a 5 stars, including the restaurant “Alle Corone” serving Venetian food with home-made pasta and pastry, a comfortable bar, a bar in the garden (open in summer),A wine cellar, a gym, a great “Reali Spa” with Jacuzzi, steam bath, sauna, emotional showers and a massage center.
