We stayed for four nights. There was a problem with our room we booked, so had to be moved for the first night. They did offer compensation. I did find it odd that no one from the hotel stays on duty at night. They just...More
It was real pleasure to stay in this beautiful Venetian palazzo, a place of real character and heritage. The location is brilliant, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist hot spots, yet only a short walk to St Mark's Square (12 mins), the...More

.... But the room was a bit perplexing. Huge, but lacking small amenities like replacement of shampoo & soap etc. The bath design meant water overflow from the shower was inevitable. The mattress was indeed tilted to the middle which affected my sleep (my wife...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.
