Our family of 6 stayed in the apartment offered by Hotel Ai Reali for 2 nights. We arrived at the hotel from the cruise port via water taxi (150 euros for 11 of us and luggage) in the morning, stored our luggage, and returned later in the day to finish the check in process. The front desk staff was efficient and courteous, although not really warm. It is a bit of a journey (about 5-7 minutes from the hotel) through a maze and then up several long flights of stairs to reach the apartment itself. I was very thankful the hotel staff had moved half of our luggage to the apartment before we returned for the evening to finish our check in and then guided us to the apartment itself. It would be nice to have a map from the apartment to the hotel as we got a little lost (easy to do in Venice) upon our first attempt to return to the hotel. Breakfast is not included for hotel guests staying in the apartment. Overall, the apartment was quite lovely and had everything a family could need for an extended stay including a washer and dryer and full kitchen. It is really quite large! The master bedroom has a pretty loft with a day bed.There is an additional bedroom and then a sleeper sofa in the living area.The 3 full bathrooms are all new and very clean. The views from the rooftop balcony were pretty and it was relaxing in the evening to listen to the bells ring and hear the chatter and faint music from St. Mark's Square. The location is great and within easy walking distance to St. Mark's and Rialto Bridge. A water taxi to the airport from the hotel-booked through the hotel-was 150 euros for a party of 6.
