I loved everything about the hotel, the staff were absolutely wonderful and helpful and the room was quite nice and spacious and the location was great to get around! The shower was amazing with great temperature and pressure! But the breakfast was such a disappointment! It was meant to be a full breakfast but all they had was some juices,... More

The only reason this hotel gets an "excellent" rating is because of the staff. The hotel itself is older, and the bathrooms are tiny! You must expect to carry your luggage up and down the many flights of stairs, and the breakfast is very simple. BUT the staff were amazing! We ate the best food on our entire trip to... More

This hotel was located on a lovely square in a fantastic location in the centre of Venice. Ten minutes walk from both Rialto Bridge and St Marks Square. Staff were very friendly. We had a room for 4 adults with a view of the square from the windows. Air conditioning which was needed as it was so hot! Room and... More

Hotel Scandinavia is my favorite place to stay in Venice. Short walk to Piazza SanMarco. Many good places to get wine,cheese, salami,and bread nearby. Staff could not be friendlier. Place is ancient but still has modern appointments. Very good Cont. breakfast.

Spent 4 nights at Hotel Scandinavial from 21-25th July 2014 and what a great find it was.The hotel is perfectly situated just10mins from Rialto and 15mins from St. Marks Square -- this is providing you don't get lost down the alleyway/streets on your way there!

I spent an hour looking for this hotel having got dropped off at Rialto bridge by vaporetta. To find it cross Rialto to the side with the statue and follow the street under the arch until you reach the supermarket and take the street on the left over the bridge into Campo Santa Maria Fermosa.

First of all we had a very hard time to find this place. Directions said it was 5 minutes from the vaporetto station. Well, maybe if you are a great athlete and know EXACTLY how to find this hotel. But if you are first time in Venice, forget it - you will be walking endlessly in the labyrinth of bridges... More

We stayed for two nights at this hotel in Venice. Reception staff were very friendly and able to recommend places to go for gondola rides and restaurants.

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.
