Pros: cheap, good breakfast and staff friendly but not knowledgable about their own amenities. Cons: Worst bed I have ever laid on in my life. I could feel every single spring and it was all around awful. I woke up both mornings in so much pain!! Also, one of the main reasons we decided on this place was because it... More

** Benefits - The hotel is very well located. San Marco is the heart of Venice, and you can reach it with a 2/3 minutes walk! The vaporetto stop (San Marco - San Zaccaria) is also very close. - Breakfast is simple but good, considering that it was included. ** Drawbacks - Nothing remarkable, but the absence of elevators.

We picked the Locanda Silva because it had great reviews here and Trivago. We went on a cruise and stayed here 2 nights before and after the cruise. Everything was pre-paid from Trivago and only had to pay the Venice city tax of €1 per person per night in cash. Friends and family traveling with use who were booked in... More

We were referred by a friend, he just completed his stay there. Spacious rooms, with en suite bathrooms for a fare price. They do have rooms with bathrooms located down the hall, reduces prices. This would work for me, but my husband wanted his own. Hotel was clean and functional. Front desk at night, not too friendly, but still pleasant... More

Locanda Silva has an excellent location; just a few blocks from San Marco Square. The day staff is very helpful; the evening night staff speaks limited English and, thus, less helpful. The rooms are recently renovated and comfortable. The included breakfast is quite good as well. I would have given a 4 star rating except my double room with bath... More

some 15mins later the owner arrived, she ran up the stairs, checked the rooms and declared it was nothing, a false alarm, set off by someone smoking. the crucial fact and the reason i joined trip advisor and have written this review---the fire department NEVER arrived!! when i asked the owner why, she informed me that the alarm signals her...

Locanda S, Proprietario at Locanda Silva, responded to this review

Dear Madam, we are sorry for the inconvenience, probably due to the fact that someone had smoed in the room. The Italian law does not require the hotel alarm system to be directly connected with the fire brigade. The firemen intervene only in case of real danger. Our hotel is regularly provided with all the security and emergency systems to... More

We booked the hotel based on a great price and an ideal location but when we got there it was so much more. We were given room 3 which was clearly freshly renovated and absolutely beautiful, with a view over the quiet little canal. It was a short walk from both St Mark's square and the Rialto bridge and was... More

We stayed in a room on the third floor and it was spacious and clean. The location of the hotel is perfect, just a 5 minute walk to San Mark's square. Breakfast is simple but nice and in general, the hotel is very good for the price.

The staff at this hotel was friendly and breakfast was nice, but the rooms are a bit worn and very small. For our family of four this was an overnight stop and therefore great for the price. The location was outstanding. Just a minute or so walk from St. Marc's and a nice little neighborhood atmosphere.

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.
