Had been here two years before, and came again, this time with my sister and brother-in-law. Rooms were clean and well-serviced, as before. With traditional decor, they were tailored to make best use of an old building. The reception staff were always patient and helpful. Situation just off the main drag between San Marco and Rialto suited us very well.... More

Good location, situated approximately a 10 min walk from both Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast was ok. Typical Venetian style hotel. Offers good value for money

This hotel is in an ideal location, close to both San Marco and the Rialto bridge. Once you have found it once, it gets easier to find! The hotel is down a side street and so is nice and quiet, yet you are only 20 seconds walk away from the shops and the main streets. The breakfast was good, and... More

Positive: close to the Rialto bridge and San Marco. Friendly helpful staff. Great location. Clean rooms. Great wifi Negative: breakfast was not desirable, fruit was from a can, salami and cheese and a few choices of bread, coffee was cold. The rooms were very small with difficulty for luggage storage. Our room view overlooked a court yard filled with renovation... More

We, like everyone else, struggled to find the Hotel but that is how it is in Venice. Never decide to go back to a shop for something you liked because you will never find the shop again when you are looking for it. The room was ok for the money...shower was a little awkward with another sprinkler hose on the... More

Venice is chronically crowded (and pricey)year-round,and remains so romantic even after many visits through the decades.Hotel is centrally located with shops,eateries, bars in the immediate neighborhood.Very hard to find even when you're already "right there." Stayed 3 nights in a double room,which is crowded with the double bed-hard to find room just to keep 2 suitcases open, had to move... More

Ovisit toVenice and what a great surprise to have the water taxi deliver us from the airport to the front door! None of the horror stories ohain to trundle cases overe miles of cobbles and bridges. Rooms are old style fine. If you pay up there to are nice ones looking over the canal.

Really enjoyed our long weekend in Venice, great location close to everything you need to visit! You must print off directions before you get there as a 10 min walk took us an hour to find! The rooms have lovely Venetian style decor. Breakfast was really great (continental) but the coffee was terrible so ask them to make you one... More

The rooms were lovely and clean, The shower pressure was lovely and the staff were very pleasant. even had a... 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.
