To start with the positives. The hotels location is excellent. You are staying right on the rialto bridge among the hustle and bustle of grand canal. Also, the amount you pay for this location is very competitive compared to other hotels nearby.

You cannot beat the location of this hotel, especially if you are fortunate enough to get a balcony overlooking the river and the Rialto Bridge. The hotel was clean and the style of the hotel was great but the staff were far from friendly and...More
The room key chain was so heavy. It was heavier than our phones and was pain to carry with us where ever we go.

Location of hotel is great. Along the side of the Grand Canal and alongside the Rialto Bridge.

The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.

It depends on how much luggage you have and how much you are willing to spend. Water taxi is the most hassle free and also the most expensive. Vaporetto is cheaper but if you have large luggage may be a tight fit depending on how many people are riding . There are other ways but those two are going to be the most hassle free. I personally think the water taxi is worth the price if you have a lot of luggage because it drops you off as close to the hotel door as possible . The vaporetto stop is directly across the water from the hotel but requires crossing the rialto bridge which has a ton of people on it at most hours and there are the stairs to contend with.

at the baggage claim at the airport look for the signs directing you to the shuttle that takes you to the Grand Canal vaporetto station. I strongly suggest that you go to the Venice City internet site and purchase your city passes there. Look through the site carefully and completely. You will find some good values. The Marconi has wi-fi....but not top flight speed. The city wide Venice wi-fi is not a good value in my consideration....I'd not purchase that again myself. I would suggest that you purchase the city toilet passes and take note as to where they are located.....my wife and sons did use this service fully. When you use the vaporetto to get to the Marconi I suggest you exit with your heavy bags at the Rialto Market and then roll them south to the Marconi (otherwise you'll be rolling and carrying them north over the Rialto Bridge and then south to the hotel. We enjoyed 4 days and 5 nights there last May. I hope you have a fine visit!
