The hotel was very much in line with the reviews and photos I have observed prior to our booking. This is a nice hotel situated in a great location. It is close to St. Mark's Square and the water taxi station. The service was great, the room was charming, turn down service each evening and we had a nice view... More

The Metropole Hotel is situated in a superb location on Riva Degli Schiavoni, looking out across Canale di San Marco with the iconic view of San Giorgio Maggiore. However, Riva Degli Schiavoni starts to get very busy and noisy with hordes of tourists by 8:30 am and by 9:30 am you can barely walk up the road unimpeded whilst being... More

A fast taxi boat will deliver you directly to a discrete canal side entrance off the Rio Della Pieta. Here you enter the hushed eclecticism of a dimly lit world, reminiscent of times long since gone, rich in texture and colour, wafted with the bookish odours of an antiquarian's study. Similarly bedecked the rooms are well serviced with modern utilises,... More

We arrived by speedboat and we were very impressed with Venice and the hotel. Its full of character, a very old building with a fascinating history, apparently Vivaldi stayed here and gave music lessons! Our room was red, the walls were red, the carpets were red and the four poster bed was adorned with red bedding but weirdly instead of... More

This is a truly lovely and historic property, overlooking the laguna, ideally located for Venetian holidays. Entering from streets jam-packed with people, The Metropole is immediately a haven: dark, quiet, and romantic, with a wonderful ambience. Fascinating collections of artifacts make every nook and cranny fascinating. Wonderful private gardens with adjoining breakfast seating. The staff is excellent throughout this property.

Arrived at the Metropole by private speed boat which is definitely recommended and first sighting of the hotel left me wandering if we had made the right choice for our wedding anniversary but from the first step of the boat to the last when leaving the staff were beyond expectations in all departments. We were offered a choice of room... More

Conveniently located to have an easy walk to all major attractions. Hotel is very well kept and our room in the garden annex was great. Breakfast buffet is very nice. The bar is well stocked and the staff is great. Restaurant is Michelin star rated.

We went to Venice for the weekend and stayed at the Metropole for 2 nights - in all honesty we hardly spent any time at all in the hotel so my review is limited. The hotel is centrally located, literally just a few minutes walk to St.Marks Square. The concierge were very helpful both whilst we were there and via... More

This was my first time staying here and it was lovely. Not the old world elegance of the Danieli or the Gritti but lovely all the same. They have a dock for a water taxi which is great if you have a lot of luggage, as we did. Room was going to be ready in about 20 minutes so they... More

Just returned from 3 days at the Metropole. We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday and it couldn't have been a better choice of hotel. Our room overlooked the side canal and through the open window we could hear the gentle sound of gondolas passing. Excellent bathroom, small but very well finished with power shower and had everything you could need... 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.
