Wonderful old hotel on a vibrant square close to vaporettas and St Marks Square and Duomo. Guiliano, the host, is wonderful. Our room was beautiful and looked down on a lively square with restaurants and shops. The breakfast was very nice and staff were helpful. The area is very safe. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend.

This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel, and We had a wonderful stay once again. The room was very quiet and well appointed. The breakfast was sufficient, typically continental, served in a small breakfast room. What made the hotel special was the welcome we received. The location, very close to St Marks square was just perfect.... More

Very charming and romantic room. Spacious and clean. Short walk from vaporetto stop. Quiet room when windows are closed. Staff was friendly and carried our bags for us! Breakfast was above average. Breakfast staff not so friendly.

We stayed in charming room 34 with its own little terrace facing the side street. It is very intimate and private. There is no elevator so be prepared to walk three flights with your luggage to get to your room. It is a great way to work off all the great food and pastry you will find nearby. The staff... More

Steps from San Marcos Piazza, easy vaporetto access, and many good places to eat nearby. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is above average. The air conditioning works, the tv is Italian only, and the free internet is fast enough for email, voice Skype, and checking news back home. We would book here again.

We had such a wonderful stay here! Location is perfect, very close to San Marco but on a quiet side street so away from the commotion. The staff here is so helpful, they carried our heavy bags up the stairs to our room, gave us dining recommendations, told us where to find an ATM, looked up and printed the vaporetto... More

My partner and I recently spend a couple of nights at this hotel. Centrally located, friendly staff, good breakfast. Charming little place with lots of history. It's a couple of blocks from piazza San Marcos. Lots of quaint restaurants and wine bars a few feet away from the hotel. We highly recommend it.

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.
