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.

We took water taxi and arrived at the private pier of iQs. We were greeted by Hakim (Hope I spell your name correctly) and he was very helpful with all our requests.

We had a great stay at this lovely and homely apartment. The staff member on the desk was very friendly and happy to recommend and organise restaurants and tours. The breakfast set out every morning was very nice and quite large. The location was ideally located in a quiet square between St Mark's Sq and the Rialto. The only slight... More

Super-stylish, yet very livable. I would recommend this hotel for its attentive service and location. The private water taxi (booked by the hotel) from the train station was the most wonderful way to arrive, our children loved it so much we decided to forego the 'compulsory' gondola ride in Venice for a water taxi to the airport (equally thrilling).

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.
