The Ai Realli is well located in a tiny square on a quiet street, something of a rarity in busy Venice. It is near the Rialto and just a 5-minute walk to San Marco. The property’s style is typical Venetian, with gilded chandeliers, metallic moldings and depictions of celestial elements. Contrary to a good amount of hotels in town, Ai Reali has used of good maintenance to upkeep the classic flair fresh and shining. The facilities include a spa, a good restaurant, a charming piano bar and its own canal door for easy access to and from gondolas or taxi boats. Rooms are very spacious and elegant, some bordering on ostentatious. The Ai Reali is perfect if you want to stay close to most of the city’s attractions yet still enjoy some privacy.
