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...

It overlooks Campo S Maria Formosa with it's thriving fruit and veg stall, newspaper kiosk, chemist and restaurants. There is a gondola station to the left, small calles, lovely unique shops. The hotle itself...

This hotels location is by far it's best asset. It's close to everything, bars, restaurants, shopping and historic sites. The rooms are small but that's typical for a building this old. The wifi is complete crap. There is no lift cause it's an old building , so if your room is on the 3rd or 4th floor, stairs it is....

We travel to Venice most years as it's one of our favourite places. Typically we try to find hotels a little of the beaten track with character The Scandinavia ticked all the boxes. Quirky and friendly with easy access to all the main areas of Venice. We booked a standard double which ended up as room 25 on the top...

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.
