The moment we arrived by water taxi coming from the back door of the hotel, we felt welcomed! When the front desk stuff offered to upgrade us to junior suite and showed us the room, we were amazed how beautiful the room was. Fancy high venetian ceiling, big windows with dark red velvet window treatment, very spacious room with a... More

Private transfer from airport directly to this hotels' own jetty was a joy - fabulous introduction to Venice. The hotel staff could not have been more friendly or welcoming upon our arrival - and they remained just as helpful & courteous throughout our 3-day stay. I have stayed in many hotels around the world,many of them larger and considered 'grander',... More

We stayed here at the end of March. The hotel was easy to find from the bus stop (took about half an hour over A LOT of bridges!) but the hotel had a dock so it would be easy to get a water taxi. The hotel was beautiful and very clean. The staff were also friendly and remembered us and... More

Dear Handypan, Very happy that you finally find us arriving by yourself…of course getting lost, that’s a kind of must in Venice! May be contacting us before, we could have arranged for your our individual airport pick up transfer service (best solution especially on arrival, since you cannot know where you have to go!) and get lost after!

We stayed at This hotel a week ago. High trip adviser rating is spot on. Service is excellent and nothing is too much. Staff on reception were at all time very professional but also very willing to do anything they could to help.

My Girlfriend and I have recently stayed at the Ruzzini Palace. We were not disappointed. What a fantastic place. After catching the water bus service from Marco Polo to Rialto and negotiating our way through the magical city of Venice we arrived in the campo where the Ruzzini is situated.

Stayed here as a surprise treat to my partner and was not disappointed with the choice. The hotel having its own jetty on the canal meant we could make use of this with our private water transfer which was very good. The hotel is in a nice quiet square so noise from outside was not a problem. It is reasonably... More

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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.
