I couldn't believe how lucky my partner and I were to find this hotel! It was absolutely incredible. The staff were lovely and were more than welcoming upon our arrival. The bags were taken for us and we were shown around the room. When we got into our room the curtains were opened by the bell boy to present the...

This is an excellent hotel with beautiful views of the lagoon and the city from each room - lovely to watch the city comes to life as you enjoy the fine breakfasts. The staff are courteous, helpful and always to hand, but never intrusive - nothing is too much trouble from answering questions to providing services.

I think this is a wonderful hotel. I just don't understand other comments here as for the breakfast. We love having our breakfast at the hotel when we travel, and we travel quite a bit. The breakfast here was the only thing that I did not like. I must have a different taste than other people, because we even skipped...

Small but really thoughtfully fitted double room with great views down to San Marco. Really convenient for the Biennale Giardini and Arsenale locations and vaporetto. Service was impeccable and the breakfast delicious. Alilaguna waterbus (linea rosso) from Marco Polo airport also stops at Arsenale so only a very short way to carry your bags to & from the hotel.

I chose this hotel after viewing the positive reviews on Trip Adviser and the fact that it looked like a hotel in which I was confident of getting a great view at a reasonable price. We weren't disappointed. It could hardly have been better. It was just a short walk (less than 200m) from the Arsenale Vaparetto stop so took...

We are all in search of value these days......the hotel is beautifully situated and perfectly located near the giardini, near enough to san marco and tourist sites, but far enough to escape at the end of the day-just in time to watch the sunset while enjoying a spritz. The staff is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable with great restaurant suggestions and...

A really excellent hotel. The location was ideal, just a 10 min walk away from St Marks Square and only 50m away from the Arsenale vaporetto stop. We could have spent all our time just looking out at the view from our bedroom window. We had a lagoon view and we could see all the way up to St Marks...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Bucintoro during our honeymoon. The hotel is located on the water about a ten-minute walk away from Saint Mark's Piazza. The location is decent because it's on the water and relatively near Saint Mark's, but it's not very close to anything else. Our room had nice wood finishes and good views of San...

Having read lots of reviews of the Bucintoro on TA we decided to use it as our base for our 3 night stay in Venice and we weren't disappointed. The hotel was immaculate, staff incredibly friendly and the rooms, although a little on the small side, were very comfortable with everything you'd need. The location of the hotel was also...

Extremely clean and modern rooms that captured the martime character of the hotel and surrounding area. An excellent location, just on the edge of the crowded centre (10-15 min walk to St Marks), which gave us the opportunity to relax and enjoy the scenery and atmosphere without being disturbed by the hordes. Room 501 highly recommended - a really special...

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
