Hotel Ai Reali photo

The Hotel Ai Reali is an attractive four-star boutique hotel that belongs to the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group. It's located within a few minutes' walk of the Rialto Bridge and the Piazza San Marco, on a quiet square overlooking the Rio della Fava canal.

The Ai Reali has 32 rooms and suites--among them, a pair of luxury apartments in a separate building. Facilities include a fitness center, spa, sauna, restaurant, garden, and free Wi-Fi.

We recommend taking the Alilaguna Linea Arancio (Orange Line) airport-boat from Venice Marco Polo Airport to Rialto. From the boat landing, you can easily reach the hotel with only two tiny footbridges to cross.

How to reach the Hotel Ai Reali from the Alilaguna pier at Rialto:
