Recently renovated I believe. A small room (141) but clean, two single beds pushed together, small fridge, shower and no bath. Great location for tourists but we had trouble finding it in spite of their map. But Venice is like that. Asked locals for help. Reasonable price for Venice. Excellent breakfast included. About 30 steps to this room. No elevator....

Having travelled around the world in many hotels, this hotel is comparatively poor and overpriced. Some stuff is very rude to customers (Alesandro). The beds and bath are dirty, sometimes there is no hot water and the bath tub was clogged. Some rooms are very small. I wouldnt recommend this place to anyone unless there is no other choice. Paid...

This was a very cute hotel with vintagy accents of pink. Breakfast buffet was great and was always stocked. Out of the 5 or so front desk workers we talked to, only 1 had a slight attitude but it got better. The room itself is very nice. Wifi connection was mediocre. Overall, very recommended.

Very nice hotel to stay in before our cruise. Was easy to get to from the water taxi drop off point, right around the corner. Excellent location, 5 min walk to the Rialto Bridge and plenty of places to eat nearby. Room was small, but tidy, all the basic amenities. Breakfast in the morning was more than adequate, and the...

This hotel was recommended to us and we were very pleased that we booked it. It is ideally located near the Rialto Bridge and St Mark's Square. The room was clean and reasonably sized, with a fridge/mini bar (the mini bar items were very reasonably priced) and tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom was fine and clean, although there was a...

I booked this hotel on the day of arrival thus getting a substantial discount on the price. For the full price they advertise it is just not worth it. The hotel is quite old and in need of at least partial refurbishment. The breakfast was rather basic.

Our family of 4 spent one night here a few weeks ago. We arrived via water taxi, which was perfect because we got dropped off right at the hotel. Otherwise, I fear we would have wandered around for hours trying to find it. We're not sure why, but we reserved two rooms and they were both upgraded to two absolutely...

The hotel is very well located. The staff very helpful. We asked how to reach the airport early in the morning and the receptionist arranged everything for us, he even prepared two bags with breakfast to take it with us. The decoration is very nice in the dining area, as well as the rooms. Looks like old style Venice. Bedroom...

Really well located in venice, at Castelo district, where everything that matters in Venice dwells. Rooms are quite cheesy in the so called venetian style, but the room is quite comfortable. Breakfast is good, though scrambled eggs taste like cardboard. Well, you won't get yourself to venice just to eat hotel-scrambled eggs, will you? the hotel is fine, no regrets.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The hotel is situated in the heart of the romantic city of Venice, in a very quiet position just 200m from the beautiful St. Mark’s Square and the famous Rialto Bridge. It is the ideal starting point to set off through the alleys to discover the wonderful monuments and typical shops which hide all the ancient, fascinating mysteries of Venice. The hotel takes its name from the famous Venetian artist, Antonio Canal, who was known as Canaletto. The rooms where the artist used to live (1697-1768) have now become our elegant hotel rooms. A friendly, elegant, romantic and quiet atmosphere furnished in typical 18th century Venetian style, with stucco work, damask, hand lacquered and gilded furniture, Murano glass mirrors and lamps. All rooms are soundproofed and have private bathroom with shower or bath, air conditioning, telephone, Wi-Fi internet access, minibar, sat TV, hair dryer and safe. There are also our superior rooms with views of the canal or the typical square with the well-curb. The elegant public rooms (breakfast room, bar, TV room, internet point and Wi-Fi access) are all decorated with stucco work and the antique smoothed lime finish, and have some lovely reproduction of Canaletto’s works on the walls. ... more   less
