The location of the Palazzo Schiavoni is excellent -- near San Marco's but far enough to be away from the crowds and be in a very nice Venetian neghborhood with excellent restauraunts and shops. Our room was fairly small but it opened to a rooftop...More
For anyone considering Venice, and this hotel in particular, you cannot go wrong if you do choose it. As it was for us, it is a little difficult to try to select a location without having visited the city first; however, do note that Venice...More
My wife and I stayed here before taking a cruise on 1 July. We now wish that we had booked the same hotel upon our cruise's return as we were to spend another two nights in Venice before returning to Australia.

We just stayed in Venice for two nights, August 22-24, 2007. We were taking our teenage son on his first trip to Europe. First we went to Paris, then Venice and on to Rome.

We were pleasently surprised when we entered the lobby after our first sighting of the hotel had us wondering just what we were in for, (a pink building that dosn't look at all like a hotel that we are used to) after meeting Antonio the...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.
