The Hotel Rio is slightly east of the Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Basilica, about a minute's walk from the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront promenade. The two-star hotel, which was fully renovated in 2014, has 11 rooms in the main building and another half-dozen in an annex behind. (Room options include singles, doubles, triples, and a quad made up of two connecting rooms with a common bath.)
For a two-star hotel, the Rio offers a good range of amenities, including a lounge with a Nespresso machine and an electric kettle with assorted teabags.
The Alilaguna Linea Blu (Blue Line) airport boat arrives at the "C" and "D" platforms of the San Zaccaria waterbus stop, which is also used by ACTV public vaporetti. Here's how to reach the Hotel Rio from the boat pier:
As you leave the waterbus station, bear left toward the stone pedestrian bridge.
Cross the bridge and continue to the second street that goes inland, the Calle degli Albanesi.
Turn right into the Calle degli Albanesi and walk straight ahead until the street feeds into a small square with a newsstand and souvenir stalls.
Cross the square to the Hotel Rio, which will be facing you.
