This was the last of 3 hotels we stayed in while in italy, and probably my least favorite, although it was fine overall. The only things I really didn't like were 1)the fact that we were on the 3rd floor and there was no elevator...More
Reasonably priced by Venice standards. Conveniently located a short stroll from heaving throngs of St. Marks et al. Rooms were fine, on the tight side, nothing to write home about. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The two things going for this hotel are its location and its staff.
Overall not good value for money. We had a room with no view other than the building next door you could just about touch. This was on the 3rd floor, no elevator,...More
The hotel rooms are good and the good part ends there. If you can get a good view room, that is a bonus. Breakfast is bad and dry. No hot stuff. Location is difficult as Venice is itself a maze and finding this hotel can...More

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.

Sorry, forgot to mention that private water taxis can also be hired at the airport and leave from a landing stage within walking distance - although it is a bit of a walk, you can't get lost as there is pretty good signage... More
Sorry, forgot to mention that private water taxis can also be hired at the airport and leave from a landing stage within walking distance - although it is a bit of a walk, you can't get lost as there is pretty good signage. Try to book your water taxi before you go to ensure that one will be waiting for you - even less hassle when you arrive at Marco Polo. The journey across the lagoon into Venice and right to your hotel by private water taxi, in my opinion, is well worth the cost and a wonderful start to the holiday.
