Rio Hotel is a great option if you want to have a great value for money only 2 minutes away walking from Piazza S. Marco. The hotel is new, clean, the staff is very polite, they provide complimentary water every day and a coffee and tea setup with a kettle that helps a lot first thing in the morning. Very...

Didn't know what to expect after a few of the reviews on here We were staying in "the annex" which people complained about because it's in a back alley behind the main hotel- we were Aware of this when we paid for the room- So no issue from me. Although it's not the best entrance to a hotel, the building...

Dear Guest, thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in Venice. First of all you "were not given" a room in the annex, but simply we assigned you the room you had booked for, nothing more, nothing less. You came here in November, when the average temperature is around 10°C (of course lower during the night), so it...

We enjoyed our 3 nights stay here in a triple room. The room was adequately sized for such a well placed hotel, it was clean with fresh bedding daily. Free WiFi and pillow chocolates were an added bonus. The directions to the hotel from the website were a great help and we managed to find the hotel with ease at...

During check-in, we waited paitently as staff took the time to check-in another couple. Once it got down to our turn, we noticed we didn't get the same presentation or enthusiasm. Maybe it was because there was now another guest behind us? Regardless, there are key things we should have been told. #1 - Where breakfast was held since we...

The hotel was better than expected. We selected the Rio as I would stay just few days in Venice. Location: It is very close to San Marco square, in less than 5 minutes you were there. Besides this hotel is very close to Vaporetto station, basically just one block. Close to hotel there are many stores and restaurants. Room: very...

Stayed here for 2 nights for trip to Venice. Excellent location close to St Marks Square. Friendly and helpful staff. Short walk from St Zaccharia water bus stop. Room was small but clean and adequate for short stay.

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello
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.
