This hotel was a bargain. It's location is fantastic. It is an idea base to explore this great city.
The breakfast was very nice which set us up for the day.
The rooms are quirky in typical Venetian style.
I would very recommend this hotel.
The Staff was helpful but not friendly, we only stayed one night is close to everything easy access to the water buses. If you travel with family & a lot of luggage then it would be extremely difficult to carry luggage across all the stairs.
Excellent location, clean and cosy room, helpful staff. There is no lift at the hotel, but we knew this in advance. The breakfast was rich, with hot buffet, which is not very common in Italy. I recommend!
Location of hotel is very good, it;s right on the grand canal. Near to Rialto bus stop, you just have to cross the bridge and hotel is there. If you have some luggage then only a bit difficult to cross bridge as there are a...More
My 2nd visit to Venice and stayed here both times. Good location by Rialto bridge and easy access from the water buses. Staff friendly and rooms good for a base with all the facilities, lots of places to eat nearby.

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.

Think the other reports have about covered it. Don't get private water taxi, be far too expensive, ACTV water bus very cheap and you can get them outside the train station.. Where they sell the tickets will advise how to get to the Rialto stop, but unfortunately it is across the other side of the canal but not 10 minutes walk..The Rialto bridge stairs is the worst part but only because of the people on it . Yes there are quite a few but easily walkable and you can stop to admire the view. Happy Hols.

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!
