This is a hotel that you don't choose yourself but are allocated as part of a package holiday. That said, it is clean, well maintained and the staff are reasonably professional. It is very central, 10 minutes to either Rialto Bridge or St Marks Square, and it sits on a nice large open square rather than a dingy side street....

I spent 3 nights here with my mum and we had a wonderful time and felt thoroughly spoilt. The staff on reception were very helpful and friendly as were the staff at breakfast. The room was clean and fresh and the hotel though small is elegant and characterful. It is so central that we walked to all the sites very...

Very close to main attractions, rooms were very clean but basic decor was very shabby but mostly functional. Breakfast was also basic, tables very close together. The staff were what made this hotel, they were very welcoming and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Although basic it made a trip to Venice affordable and I would use them again

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,...

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...

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...

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.

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.
