Travelled here with the misses for 4 days between xmas and new year... Location was perfect, less than 10 min walk from san marco and the rialto bridge. Easy walk from the waterbus terminal so nice connection from airport. The lady at check in was so polite, friendly and helpful and allocated us room 25 which was on the top...

Arrived on Boxing day by water taxi from Marco Polo Airport, we eventually found the hotel through the high ways and byways of Venice, I think the given distance from the water taxi drop off point may be a bit further than indicated. The maze of alley ways etc was well lit and felt very safe.

Very good location between San Marco and Rialto Bridge. Very good breakfast . rooms are different as style . never book the single room no 15. IT is ridiculously small and does not have the minibar as the other rooms have . and also the walls were dirty . Otherwise, I recommend it for a good quality price ratio.

On arrival the receptionist provided us with a map, drawing on popular walks, sights, where to eat, cruises etc. She couldn't have been more helpful and I got that impression from the other staff too. The hotel is in a perfect location for visiting Venice. Only 5 minutes from Rialto bridge and 10 minutes or so to San Marco. The...

I felt uncomfortable about putting this review as the staff of hotel were the most friendly and nicest people in comparison to another hotel we stayed in Venice . Unfortunately , the hotel is very dated and tired with very old and almost broken furnitures that I hardly can recommend it to anyone. The bed linen and blanket was so...

Clean room, comfortable bed. Small fridge in room if you need this. Excellent breakfast included. Hotel located in pretty plaza square within walking distance to Doges Palace and Basilica as well as gondola ride. Desk attendant, Benito speaks English and was very helpful. Poor wifi if that's important to you. Lots of stairs to get to your room. We were...

Good sized bathroom and room. It was strange walking into it but once there it was fine. The staff accommodated with a room with less steps because I had hurt my knee. The only complaint I had was that in the email they sent I was told they had parking, so we had them park our car. Upon leaving I...

Very well located within the city of Venice this hotel is only a short walk to most of the major attractions - it is fairly typical of most mid-range venetian hotels in respect of not having a lift to speak of and being fairly 'cosy'. My particular room had a small balcony, not much view though but nice to sit...

As mentioned in many other reviews, this hotel has a great centralized location. Everything you need and want is within walking distance. Our room was on the small side but had everything we needed. The bathroom has been updated very nicely. The morning breakfast is better than most and the gentleman running it did a great job keeping it stocked...

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.
