Stayed for a couple of nights whilst exploring Venice. Easy enough to get to from the Rialto Stop of the Vaparetto (only 2 bridges). Huge room with King bed and 2 singles all in the room. Great air-conditioning. Quiet and peaceful. It was a winner...More
Great hotel on a quiet square about 5 minutes from San Marco square. We had a room on the top floor which was huge! AC worked perfect, WiFi worked. Staff is very friendly and helped us finding a nice place to eat in Venice. Very...More
Great hotel, in an excellent location for visiting the tourist spots in Venice, without being right in the centre of the crowded part. The rooms were massive, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was varied and plentiful. The staff were really friendly and helpful, with...More
Away from the crowds but easy walk to sights. Liked the baby grand piano in second floor hallway. Room was nicely decorated and bathroom was huge. I didn't know how much we would appreciate the air conditioning. Staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good.
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.

You will definitely want to take a water taxi. Walking would be unthinkable with luggage. We stayed at the hotel after a cruise as well. It should be about 70-90 Euros, but well worth it as the drop off will be right next to the hotel - the driver will know, and you will get a short canal tour!
