“If I return to Venice, I would be happy to stay here again.”
Reviewed 11 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

First - all of the people that we dealt with, from booking the reservation to our greeting were very helpful, with good information and quick solutions to minor problems.
The location of this apartment is fantastic. Less than a three minute walk from door to the Rialto bridge. Alilaguna and Vaporreto stops were within just a few steps, making transportation throughout the city (and to outer islands) convenient. Even with that convenience, Venice is a very walkable city. We walked from the apartment to San Marco more than once, making the trip in 12-to 20 lyminutes, depending on how many shop windows were scanned. The apartment itself was neat, clean and comfortable, with more than adequate room for a large group, with three bedrooms and three (plus) bathrooms.
Our only negatives might be the stairs, which might be a problem with mobility impaired individuals, or those with a lot of luggage. We, a group of five, with a combined age of 342 years were able to make the climb several times a day (although with some heavy breathing at the top). The other negative would be the system of trash disposal, which is interesting, and needs to be thoroughly explained when you check in.
Having said all that, if, and when, we return to Venice, this apartment will be our first choice.

“Great Location, Beautiful and Spacious Apartment”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

6 of us comfortably stayed at Rivo Alto in May this year. The greater was very helpful in identifying local amenities. The apartment has plenty of room for six people. The kitchen is well equipped and the view is truly exceptional. The apartment is steps away from the Rialto bridge in front of the vaporetto stop. The markets are easily accessible and a great spot to get fruit, vegetables and fish. There is a great wine store near the fish market that has a wide selection of Nero D'Avola. The only drawbacks are the 57 steps you have to ascend (so pack wisely) and the fact there are no screens to keep mosquitos out (and there were lots of them). The experience was great. The staff under Daniela's direction are great. They assisted me in reclaiming a fanny-pack I forgot at a local restaurant. Truly Venice is truly the best way to arrange accommodation in Venice.

“Fantastic apartment at the Rialto Brisdge”
Reviewed 18 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Very nice comfortable apartment for us - a party of three couples. All three bedrooms with excellent baths. Kitchen well equipped. The view was excellent. The servicing partner was very friendly and informative.
This was indeed an apartment that we can recommend to others who would like to have an excellent and large locatio.

“Superb location, but still a haven from the hustle and bustle”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Rivo Alto apartment certainly lives up to the stunning photos, being right next to the Rialto Bridge in the heart of Venice. Thanks to the double-glazed windows in the living room you can easily shut out the bustle below or open them to get the sounds of the Grand Canal and more of the amazing views too.

The apartment is well equipped and stylishly decorated, and comfortably sleeps 6 or more, with plenty of space to relax after a busy day's walking or sightseeing. Each bedroom is further back in the apartment, away from the canal, making them all ideal for a quiet night's sleep.

The entrance is nicely tucked away from the busy canalside, and the only consideration you need to make is that being on 3rd floor of the building means there's a hike up the stairs to the apartment, although this didn't present a problem for myself and my friends.

Crucially, the prime location makes moving around Venice easy, avoiding the need to trek to a bridge to cross the Grand Canal, while Piazza San Marco and most other sights are only a short walk away.

A most memorable stay at the Rivo Alto. The apartment was on the Grand Canal with views of the Rialto Bridge from two sides. Too bad we just missed George Clooney. The photos would have been perfect. It was very comfortable for seven people. The kitchen and laundry facilities were great. This location is perfect for walking and touring with the vaporetto very close by. We totally enjoyed our stay, and I would be pleased to return there. It was pretty and clean. The staff were helpful. It is quite a few steps up with suitcases, but worth the climb.

“Great, central apartment with amazing views”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We've just returned from a 5 night stay at this apartment and loved every minute of our time in Venice! The panoramic views of the Grand Canal and Rialto Bridge are stunning, though be aware this is on the third floor with no lift and some fairly steep steps! This is a very traditional style apartment but very spacious and every where was clean and tidy. Excellent central location with vaporetto stop right outside the apartments and in the midst of many lovely bars and restaurants.

In regards to the booking process with Truly Venice; Daniela couldn't have been more helpful answering any questions and booking our water taxis for us! We met representative Chiara who had some excellent recommendations in regards to cicchetti bars and local restaurants.
