Return visit to this charming hotel, this time with my teenage daughters. Massive rooms, attentive service, water entrance and midway between St Marks & the Rialto, the Ruzzini is ideally placed on a quiet but nice square with restaurants, small market, ice cream parlour & pharmacy. This hotel is old Venice but with every modern convenience.

Once again the Ruzzini Palace was perfect, the staff are professional, friendly and courteous and the rooms are beautiful. The location is perfect with St Mark's sq and the Rialto bridge on its doorstep and the setting in Santo Maria Formosa is stunning. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Venice.

We had a fabulous time in Venice, largely due to the fabulousness of this hotel. Our room was on the ground floor overlooking the canal and hotel entrance, minutes from the bar and breakfast! Room was spacious, comfortable and well designed, our shower was bigger than my entire bathroom at home! The staff here are all amazing, nothing is to... More

We spent 3 days in Venice and chose this wonderful Hotel. Our room windows opened out onto a beautiful courtyard. The room was exceptionally spacious and the bathroom was luxurious. The back doors of the hotel opened onto the canal, which was a nice bonus. A real treat.

I booked with Ruzzini months in advance of our Europe trip for one night. Our plans then changed and we were staying in Venice 2 nights. The staff at Ruzzini were easy to communicate with via email and so accomodating. We couldn't really afford the grand room for the 2 nights but the standard wasn't available. They then offered us...

We stayed for two nights, pre and post cruise. The hotel is lovely, breakfast was excellent and location was good. Our service was excellent! The people at the front desk were very helpful with booking a water taxi to the airport and answering all of our questions.

We spent three great nights here and it was marvelous. The location was ideal for making our way to all parts of Venice. The breakfast was outstanding and featured a vast array of items. The staff were all very helpful and a computer was available just off the lobby. Many great places to eat are nearby.

Lovely hotel, great location, wonderful room (#2). Front faces a beautiful square and at the back there is a canal (clean! I could see fish and a sea anemone) where you can observe gondolas passing by. Quiet . The staff where polite and helpful. Loved staying there!

We spent three nights here and the staff could not have been more helpful. They organised transport and a great night out for us. Decent breakfast. Close to the Paizza and Rialto. We would stay there again.

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.
