This hotel is located really conveniently to the key places of interest, which is great as Venice requires a lot of walking and this hotel's central location in a lovely area was fab. The staff were friendly but the hotel services were lacking - we couldn't access the air conditioning, the bar was never staffed, the breakfast wasn't great but... More

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for taking time to write this review! The location is one of our strong points. Few minutes and you can reach the key places of interest easily (if you do not get lost!). Then the a/c was not working due to the city's restriction laws, now we are allowed to use them.

We have just returned from 4 nights at the Due Principi and cannot praise it highly enough. On the doorstep of central Venice, it nonetheless is a haven of peace, overlooking a quiet canal with the odd drifting gondola. Room was spotless and appeared to have been newly decorated, with a range of facilities and the breakfasts were extensive fresh... More

It was very easy to get to the hotel from the Train station. It is a 45 minute boat ride. From the railway station Venezia Santa Lucia, use public transport (vaporetto) (I used line 1). Get off at San Marco/ San Zaccaria stop, come to the Vittorio Emanuele monument and go through the passage (sottoportico) leading to Campo San Zaccaria.... More

Hotel Ai Due Principi was perfect for our trip to Venice. It was located on a quiet canal with our rooms overlooking the water. The rooms were large with comfortable beds, beautiful bathroom and great decor. The staff was helpful and the breakfast was very good. We stayed one night and wish we could have stayed longer.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your excellent review! In fact the location of our hotel is closed to everything: Saint Mark's square and Rialto bridge are situated just few steps far from our structure. We would be pleased to meet you again in our beautiful city! With my personal regards, Deborah 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.
