Nice hotel, next to St Marcos and central!

Posted Apr 2, 2017
Wonderful hotel with everything in it, and so close to everywhere , St Marcos is just less than 5 minutes walk, great places to eat everywhere , just don't eat in the restaurants that are in the plaza just where the hotel is, very expensive , i will suggest if u want to have a night out go to the ones the hotel recommends u, you get 12 percent discount saying their name :), to go there from train terminal just catch the public ferries that takes u to San Marcos/St Zacharia and from there is about 5 minutes walk to hotel ( just ask someone where is hotel Daniels and walk trough that narrow little street and there is the hotel) one thing u do need to go through a few stairs to your room and is quite narrow at well , but is a beautiful hotel with exactly all what u need, and for the price is superb! Thank you Hotel Rio we loved staying with u!

Smelly room

I really like the room we had as it was clean and will decorated except it smelled of dead rat or sewer, not exactly sure which it is. They could not offer another room as they only have one room that can fit 4 ppl.

A 2 minute walk from St Marks Square. This hotel is ideal for a city break. However very noisy corridors/ echoey wood flooring. Highly recommend

Very happy with the hotel, the rooms are quite small but it was OK given perfect location near San Marco

Perfect for sight seeing!

Location: Sightseeing location to San Marco was an easy five minute walk. Shopping and good eating locations were all nearby.
The Rio Hotel was located in a perfect location for sight seeing in Venice. The staff was excellent and very helpful with ideas, places to eat, luggage storage and printing of boarding passes. The room was comfortable, safe and clean. I would absolutely recommend the Rio Hotel in Venice.

Wonderful!

Beautiful romantic hotel, the showers were amazing, breakfast was nice. The staff was great, extremely helpful and kind. There's a Metro station 1 minute a way from the hotel, and it's a 10-15 minutes ride to the main attractions in Rome. Totally worth the drive.
