Beautiful rooms and and nice accommodations. The hotel staff is very helpful and courteous. We had no issues with WiFi and breakfast was modest, but nice. The best about this place is the location - very close to shops and food and extremely close to San Marcos Square. Both days we started early, regrouped on our rooms and then went... More

This family run inn is special. It is in a 500 year old building, perfectly located and staffed with friendly and helpful staff. Three of us (husband and I and adult son) stayed here for 3 nights in mid-June and we all felt that our choice only enhanced our stay in Venice. Our room, No. 24, was huge, with 2... More

Small cute hotel in the middle of Venice, just a few blocks from Marcus place but still in a quite area. We had room 34, on the top floor (no elevator). I will certainly try to book the same hotel next time I go to Venice. We even had a small balcony :-) where you can have your breakfast served.... More

Very helpful staff and can't beat the location to St. Mark's Square. If you are gluten free, they can provide biscuits and rice cakes for breakfast which is included in the price. Very convenient to the ferry (2 blocks) and can get to this location easily from Marco Polo airport by taking the bus and ferry. Decent size room by... More

This hotel worked perfectly for my grandaughter and me when we visited Venice. The location was very close to both St. Mark's Square and to the main vaporetto stops. It was great to turn off the busy dock area and into the tiny cool alley leading to the hotel. The room was a good value and, although small, easier to... More

Gorgeous small hotel , very friendly staff ,ideal situation about 100yds from Grand Canal and about 5 mins from St Marks square. No lift and there are quite a few stairs but well worth the effort! (May help work the pasta off) breakfast is basic but fresh and more than enough to start the day with a lovely lad to... More

Once we found it and met our host, we were amazed at how passionate they were and very helpful. Our room was a good size for the age of the building, and all updated, the a/c worked great, the room over looked a courtyard with great restaurants and venders below. Plenty of shops and stores around the hotel. close to... More

I expected so much better given the good reviews and overall ranking of this hotel. Unfortunately we experienced so many annoyances that the overall stay was not a pleasant one. Management likes to blame the fact they are in a 500-year old building and cannot make changes but that doesn't explain the big problems. Here are the problems: 1) Wi-fi... 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.
