Some hits, some misses.
We arrived in Venice, and the hotel was a short walk from the water bus. We were brought from the reception desk into a small courtyard - we were excited because we thought it would be quieter than being over the...More
We timed it -- once you know the route, this hotel is less than 3 minutes walk from St. Mark's Square. Direct route, and easy walk from the water bus. Clean, comfortable, functionable. Our room was 'compact' and the shower one of the smallest I've...More
We stayed here for four nights. Our room was in the annex-building, and that suited us perfectly, because it was quiet and peaceful. The room, and especially the bathroom were small, but was nice and clean. We had short distance to everything we wanted to...More
We had 4 rooms in the annex building. Comfortable bed, good hot water in shower. Beware there is no lift - need to carry suitcases but we were on levels 1 and 2 so not too bad. Great location - so close to St Mark's....More
This hotel is in a good location but that’s about the only positive – We stayed for 2 nights here as part of an 8 week honeymoon and out of over 20 hotels, this was by far the worst sleep of the lot.
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.
