A contemporary hotel in an old house at central Venice, just 10 mins walk from Piazza San Marco. The location is easy access to main sight-seeing spots as long as you get familiar with those complicated narrow alleys. The suite is very stylish with modern facilities(the only thing lacking, for me, is no bath tub), but it still feels like... More

This property was fabulous for our family stay in Venice. Great location, friendly staff and clean comfortable rooms. We loved watching all the passing gondola traffic and it was just a 5 min walk to San Marco.

Thank you to Charming house, our stay in Venice was prefect. The service was excellent, the place was very clean, nice, spacious and comfortable. They always made sure we had what we needed, they even went grocery shopping for us. It was perfect and is highly recommended. It was far enough away from everything to get our romantic quiet space... More

This is a very comfortable and well located hotel, that is just removed enough from the hectic San Marco square, but close enough to have everything in close walking distance. The staff were extremely nice and helpful, and were more than happy to help line of dining reservations at good places.

The pictures and reviews were so enticing, and we were really looking forward to our stay. Everything about this place looked and sounded great, and the folks that we emailed were really helpful and nice.

Superb location and a real hidden jewel. Off the main tourist trail and peaceful. Staff were only too ready to help with any of our needs, and our suite was clean and of adequate size. Treat yourself and make sure you arrive by private water taxi!

When the water taxi skimmed along the bustling Grand Canal and turned up one of the many pituresque smaller canals then eased to a gentle stop in the private lobby of the IQs Charming House we kneww we were in for a special holiday. This is truly a special place. Small, only three apartments, backing on to a quiet square,... More

Our first time to Venice and I had very high expectations! IQs exceeded them! Arriving by water taxi right up to the IQs private jetty and stepping from boat directly into the little hotel reception was extremely cool!

We really enjoyed our 3-night stay at Charming House iQs. All of Venice is charming but this hotel really lives up to its name. Actually, it's less of a hotel and more like staying in an elegant one bedroom apartment in a beautiful traditional Venetian building. The location is central but in a very quiet and uncrowded neighborhood. Our arrival... 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.
