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! IQs offers just 3 wonderful apartments in an amazing location - just 5 mins to San Marco yet in a tranquil setting... More

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

My husband, son and myself visited Venice for a milestone birthday celebration. We chose IQ's for it's spacious apartment and central location. We arrived by water taxi to the front door which was a fabulous experience and from then on the trip got better and better. The apartment was beautifully designed and very clean, it had everything you could want... More

We spent two nights here while traveling with our two boys ages 9 and 12 and really loved the location and cozy feel to IQs. This is a small special place, and when you are handed a keyring with keys to the suite, the front door and the front gate, you feel like a local. Arriving by water taxi was... More

Not really a hotel at all with just 4 rooms arranged around an inner courtyard of a typically ancient Venetian house. We arrived by foot, across the private bridge to a warm welcome, but to really arrive in style you can take a water taxi, being dropped directly into the reception area. Our two bedroom suite was very spacious, in... More

We had 4 nights in IQs and can safely say we were very sad to leave. The Hotel is wonderfully small, quiet, romantic & beautifully decorated and was perfect for a couple's get away.

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.
