This small hotel is in a wonderful location just off San Marco square. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast room is small but the food was good. Some people have complained about the breakfast staff and amount of food but we found them friendly and if you wanted more you had only to ask nicely. The air conditioning was... More

Although this hotel isn't a five star, the hotel staff friendliness and willingness to go the extra distance made the difference. The hotel is located on the a small side ally nearby the water and its convenient to moving around in Venice and to Piazza San Marco. Would stay there again...

We normally stay in one of the larger hotels when we are in Venice but thought we would try something different and we are sure glad we did. It took as a little bit to find the hotel but other than that everything was wonderful about this stay. The staff, location, room, breakfast were all well above standard. I would... More

Hotel Leon takes service to another level. We arrived to find that our reserved upgrade to a room with a terrace was not possible because the previous guest did not vacate. So they gave us a free upgrade to a junior suite. We probably should have just gotten a regular room since we had no real use for the additional... More

What a wonderful stay we had here - we wish it had been longer. The location is excellent. We were close to many sites as well as the vaporetto stop. Breakfast was great and the staff could not have been better! The room was clean and quiet at night. We were there when there was a power outage and the... More

Location is great if you haven't been to Venice and want to be close to the tourist spots! If you want lest "touristy" spots go to the opposite side of the Rialto Bridge. Room was clean. Seemed more like a bed and breakfast to me. The young man at the front desk (I don't know his name) was fantastic. VERY... More

We stayed at the Locanda al Leon for three nights - the first leg of our vacation in Italy. Our room was on the second floor of the annex, and was spacious and comfortable (both the bedroom and the bathroom!). We arrived in the morning and the staff graciously expedited things so we could check in around 1 p.m., and... More

This hotel is a story of a great location marred by the owner putting no money (or at least not enough money) into the hotel. Our room looked like it had nothing done to improve in 15 years, the carpet was stained everywhere, the grout in the shower was black and cracked everywhere and the hotel in general had a... 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.
