The rooms of Residenza de l'Osmarin gives you the feeling you are staying at a friend's place who offers you a luxurious guestroom. 2 minutes walking from St Mark's Square right at the canal with beautiful views of the canal, surrounded by nice restaurants, bars and shops. Decent breakfast with a nice chat with the owners of the place.

Maria Elisabetta is lovely, nothing was too much trouble. She makes the most delicious cakes! Breakfast on the terrace was wonderful. Perfect location. I was very impressed as to how much pride is taken with cleanliness and attention to detail. We cannot recommend Residenza de l'Osmarin enough.

The hospitality shown was tremendously appreciated. They helped us with everything from our rooms, breakfast, advice on paths to take and place to eat. I highly recommend this place if you are ever looking for a place to stay in Venice. Maria and Radalfo (sorry if the spelling is incorrect) are super generous and great ppl.

Best place to stay. We stayed in the suite and loved the terrace to escape to when the streets got busy. The room was great and completely spotless. Perfect spot close to everything but in a nice quiet area. Venice was my favourite place on our trip and massive part of that was down to the great B&B that Maria...

Situated in an authentic Venetian area with many less tourists, it is only a few minutes walk to St Marks Square and only a few hundred metres from the main boat station St Zacharriah. We stayed in the Suite on the top floor which boasts a lovely terrace overlooking a canal and has a table, 4 chairs and a sun...

We stayed at the Residenza l'Osmari for four days in early May and it was a delightful experience. The location is wonderful--not too far from the water taxis and quite close to Piazza S.

We had the top floor with 2 rooms & kitchenette. We had a lovely view of the canal. No elevators here, stairs only. Airco was great & cold, which was nice with the high humidity. When you arrive, it's like a taste of how the locals live. The owners were so nice and accommodating. You are right near St. Marks...

I recently returned to Residenza de l'Osmarin for the second time, taking friends with me. As before, Maria Elisabetta and Rodolfo are wonderful hosts, helping with any special interests and whatever information you might need about Venice. The location is absolutely perfect, minutes away from San Marco, but also away from the crowds of day-trippers. Rooms are homey and delightfully...

My boyfriend and I recently spent one night inVenice and were able to get a great deal for this quaint, lovely B&B. We were wishing we had more time in Venice after our stay, but we were on a strict timeline. I communicated with the owners of the B&B prior to our visit, due to our arrival time. I requested...

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.
