We originally booked with another hotel, where our friends' tour group was staying, but they overbooked and our reservation was assigned here. I fought to get out of it, I even called the original hotel directly, and grudgingly accepted Bucintoro. This hotel was PERFECT. It's near the main action on the island (not that you can't walk to anything you... More

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. The hotel was very clean and charming with almost a B&B feel to it. Breakfast was included free every morning. The hotel has million dollar views of Venice. It is located about a 15 walk along the bay to most of the must see tourist areas. There... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hotel Bucintoro prior to an Eastern Mediterranean cruise. Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor I was pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel actually exceeded our expectations. We loved the location! We had a Junior Suite with a Lagoon view and it was breathtaking to look out our window and be... More

This hotel is the definition of charming. Our bed was big as was our room. The bed was comfy. Our room had a lovely little sitting area. I opened our window every morning and looked out onto all of Venice. I LOVED the location. It's only a 10 minute walk to San Marco Square and was nice a quiet at... More

We stayed in the junior suite on 5th floor, and although the room itself was not particularly luxurious (or large) and the bathroom a little tired, it was made up for by the fabulous rooftop terrace that comes with this room. The view across St Mark's basin towards the Grand Canal, Santa Maria della Salute, San Giorgio and the Lido... More

In short. A fantastic hotel. Great views. Very comfortable bed. Nice staff. Just far enough away from the crowds to be quiet. Every night we would drink a bottle of wine and watch the sunset and the crowds wander back to their tour buses.

Named after the state barge of the Doges of Venice this is a splendid hotel. Decorated in a stately nautical theme with mahogany panels on all the walls, beautiful brass fittings everywhere and many other classical touches that make the hotel feel very plush and accommodating. The hotel is also in a great location right next to the Arsenale and... More

We found this hotel by chance on Expedia and were drawn to the location and the interior which was themed like a sailing ship. In the email exchange before our visit the staff were incredibly friendly and professional and this continued on our arrival. Nothing was any problem for them. The room was lovely, clean and smart with an amazing... More

We enjoyed all aspects of our 4 night stay at the Bucintoro. As constantly mentioned in almost all previous reviews, the location is one of the best in Venice. Just far enough away from the hordes of disembarking tourists and nighttime revelers but convenient to all that Venice has to offer, including many excellent restaurants (Al Covo, Alle Testiere, Corte...

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.
