This is a perfect location for seeing Venice. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go to see the things we wanted to see within a half hour. It is only 3 minutes to St Mark's and 5 minutes to the Rialto Bridge. It was nice to get up early and see both of these sites before the...

We booked this room as a preferred location from Tripmasters for a family of four. The largest room they had was still small for four beds. Air conditioning did not work well either. We walked across the plaza to stay at a very nice hotel with a suite and forfeited our payment. The Scandinavia is very dated, sorry not our...

Dear Sirs, We are sorry to hear that you did not find the hotel you wanted in Hotel Scandinavia, but having purchased your stay through the tour operator Gulliver, we believe that the problem is only attributable to the tour operator who has badly advised you. In this case, having chosen a 4 star superior hotel and a “junior suite”...

Myself and my wife visited Venice on 28th and 29th March 2017. The room was big, toilet well maintained, breakfast nice, the desk managers were so helpful and I remember the Madam so friendly. The location is good specially considering that it is located at Santa Maria Formosa and easy to locate.

We stayed for four nights in April. Two double rooms, both clean with small but well appointed bathrooms. Fantastic location - you can walk to Fundamente Nove, St Marks and Rialto in less than 15 minutes. Breakfast was speedy, lots of choice and very fresh. Friendly helpful staff. Stairs might be a problem for the less mobile.

We had rooms 2 and 3 on the 2nd floor. It was a fantastic location so central. Staff were lovely. Rooms were cleaned and sheets changed every day. No lift but staff brought your suitcases up. Breakfast was good too. Would Deffo go back for another visit.

A hotel in one of the traditional buildings in Venice, so be prepared to walk up lots of stairs if your room is on one of the upper floors as there is no lift, but no worries about carrying luggage, this was taken care of. Whilst the breakfast room was 'cosy' there was a good selection of food to choose...

This hotel is located kind of half way between realto and San Marco. So it is not far from the main points of interest. The staff were all lovely. Always saying hello and stuff and asking if we needed help. The room itself was perfect for our needs with a large bathroom with a bath (sometimes it's just a shower)....

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
