Pros: Great location, nice people, clean
Cons: outdated, odd layout, breakfast is odd (very cramped with rooms right next to it) , odd room (a desk with 2 chairs)
It was ok, nice and cheap but I wouldn't visit again
Hard to find so will add directions later. The breakfast room is small but food is good. Bathroom is small and it’s far to hot with no way to turn down the temperature. Hard bed and hard pillows, I’m used to memory foam. Staff lovely...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.
