We knew we would have to pack in a lot of walking in our two and a half days in Venice. We picked al Leon for its price and proximity to San Marco. We took the Blue Line waterbus from the airport. It took us right to the dock at the bottom of the alley for al Leon. There was... More

I don't usually write reviews but I was so surprised at how much I loved this bed and breakfast. I heard horror stories of old hotels in Venice. This exceeded all expectations even compared to American hotels. Cute bed and breakfast with the most helpful and polite staff right in all the action in st marks square. Highly recommend this...

We found our hotel tucked down a small alley, not sure if the night receptionist was waiting for us especially but he was stood outside until we arrived. First impressions the room was at the top of the building, luckily we didnt have much luggage, it was clean with a small wooden veranda overlooking the roof tops which was charming.... More

Locanda al Leon is fairly easy to find in the maze of streets that is Venice. Get off the water taxi at San Marco, turn left and after a couple of minutes you'll see the Hotel Danieli. Turn up the very narrow Calle Albanesi at the far side of the Danieli and Locanda Al Leon is at the end of... More

The staff was excellent and incredibly welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Whenever we had questions about where to eat, they offered specific (and tasty) recommendations. The hotel is located close to San Marco, but not right on top of the tourist activity - an ideal location. Rooms were well-appointed and the A/C worked very well even during the heat... More

The hotel is located in an old building that has retained its Venetian charm . The rooms are well appointed and comfortable . The hotel does not have a asenceur and breakfast room is cramped . As usual in Italy , breakfast is average.

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

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.
