I look forward to visiting Venice at least once a year and my favourite place to stay is Albergo Doni. On a pretty canal, it is away from the crowds but just minutes from San Marco. A friendly, family run, comfortable hotel full of character and charm.

Very close to the Palazzo Ducale and San Marco. Less than five minutes. Clean room, and historical type. About the services, who cares so much?? You're in Venice, you will stay in the hotel? :) Very good balance price-location

5 minutes or less walking distance from St. Marco square, but in a quite, romantic spot, very clean and warm Venetian style environment. 100m away from the water bus stop, really handy for luggage drop, direct from the train station(20 minutes). Tidy rooms and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Optimal value for money. Excellent location.

The hot was a bit hard to find. Housed in a historic venetian building, the hotel is set behind St. Mark's sq, therefore the location is impeccable. It is removed from the crowds of the sq and the promenade adjacent to the Ponte dei sospiri, but yet 5 minutes walk awa from the center of it all. Be ready to... More

My husband and I stayed at this small family run hotel for three nights. The history of it is amazing, The brothers and sister who run it are very nice and took the time to give us lots suggestions and directions. It is very charming and centrally located on a little canal. The breakfasts were great. We had to leave... More

We were very happy with our accommodations. I especially liked the singing gondolas flowing right under our windows. And the location is so close to St. Mark's Square that we were able to visit places of interest and return to our room to relax and prepare for the next outing. The breakfast was unusual--not quite what we're used to but... More

The only good thing about this hotel is it's proximity to St Mark's Square.It is tiny,dirty,and a poor excuse for a hotel.Overpriced!!!The breakfast provided is horrible,powdered colored water passes for juice....hard rolls....disgusting brown liquid is passed off as coffee.The noise is horrible all night long,walls are paper thin.....try not to stay here.

My hotel Doni is not dirty at all , all customers with their reviews write that is very clean, and also is not overpriced, infact we have the lowest rates of all the hotels near San Marco square, and the breakfast is simple like in all the one star hotels but all the customers love our coffee and also we...

We started our Italian vacation in Venice. Our three nights were spent in the Albergo Doni. It was a small, quiet, quaint hotel, stuck away near St Mark's Square. Nikos and Tessa were very helpful in guiding us to places of interest and making sure we got on the correct Alilaguna (boat back to the airport). There is no elevator... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was a very uncomfortable stay. The place is like a haunted house, with weird paintings and extremely old and raggy furniture. The hotel was overpriced for what it was, and the owner even tried to charge us more than we agreed to pay which was very sneaky. When we... More

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
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.
