Could not fault this hotel. The location is excellent - very central to everything in Venice. The staff were extremely helpful, both via email prior to our stay and when we arrived. The breakfast was excellent and the service was wonderful. The facilities at the hotel are highly recommended and the rooms were very spacious.

We booked a Deluxe Room and ended up in an unbelievably amazing and very large Junior Suite with canal view. The bed was extremely comfortable and the...

This hotel was absolutely amazing! The hotel is in a great location, right next to a canal and within walking distance of St Mark's Square and the Rialto bridge, it also has a convenient boat entrance perfect for catching a water taxi to and from the airport. Our room was beautiful, decorated in true Venetian style with Murano glass light...

This lovely hotel is very well located and and easy walk to many fabulous places. Despite this, it's very quiet, even over New Year. We stayed for a week in a lovely room (304) which had plenty of power points, including by the bed. Breakfast is great with a wide range of choices, and the bar is ideal for a...

We have stayed at the hotel several times before, but had not visited for over a year, and this time it was for Christmas.

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.
