Venice can be ridiculously busy and this hotel in the quiet square of Santa Marina was a peaceful oasis after a days sightseeing.
We booked a little suite (623), pleasant small siting room with smallish bedroom. Yes small is the word but very comfortable and...More
The Santa Marina was recommended to us by friends who did not let us down. Our room was fairly spacious with a separate sitting room and a powerful shower. The breakfast was excellent with croissants, pain au raisin, pain au chocolat, meats, cheese fruit and...More
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.

The vaporetta run a N ( night) service. You can find details online. You get off at the Rialto bridge. The hotel is a 10 minute stroll from there ( you do have to lug your suitcases up and down a few bridges over the canals!) we did it and it's not difficult. The Vaporetta are enormously cheaper than a water taxi. Depends on your budget I guess. Hope this helps.

We had to take a water taxi, it is about 110 euro per person with luggage, we also got a porter to take our bags from the taxi stop and the porter cost us 25 euro, they are good to use as they know the area very well. Venice is like a maze and you can get a bit "lost" if you don't know where you going. We stayed in the main hotel and it really was a great room. If they booked you in one of the annexes ask them to move you to the main hotel (they do charge extra), unless you have been booked into the main hotel. We had room 402 and it was very big.
