In terms of location, you could not ask for more. It was great value for money. The breakfast was adequate. The rooms however were incredibly hot, and you could not open the window as the smell of the canal was over powering. The hotel staff were very friendly.

Staffs of the hotel were very very kind. We had to take a train in the early times, so we couldn't have breakfast. So the staff gave us packaged breakfast. We were very grateful. It takes 35~40 minutes by vaporetto from the station but it's near piazza san marco. On the day we had to leave, the staff had to... More

Because of our flight time we arrived before midday, having been asked what time we expected to arrive, our room was ready and waiting which we appreciated. The hotel is, as advertised, 3*. I would say that for Venice the price we paid was good for the standard of hotel. Take into account the location and it was excellent value... More

This hotel is in an ideal situation, very easy to find and close to everything. We had a room with a lagoon view and small balcony with lots of activity including the arrival of large ships. The bathroom is small but has everything you need including a bidet. The office staff are friendly and helpful. Decor a little dated, the... More

This hotel is perfectly placed to explore Venice as it's only a 10 min walk from San Marco square and with views across lagoon to the other islands, also some very luxurious boats moor in front of the hotel. Staff all friendly and speak very good English, the room was lovely, with twin beds plus a sofa and also a... More

We stayed here for one night pre-cruise and three nights afterwards. It was very easy and close to Arsenale for the vaporetto to the airport and port. The staff here are lovely, very accommodating and helpful. They helped us book the opera at short notice, washed some clothes by hand (without asking) as they were delicate. It is a great... More

It's to the south of Venice, over looking the lagoon, at the end of the Grande Canal, a lovely view from the seats at the front of the hotel, and the rooms at the front. Our room was at the side, it was a good size for 2 people, excellent air conditioning, which was a must because there was a... More

Wonderful stay. Perfectly located just a short walk from the busy St Marks Square, on the lagoon and in walking distance of all sites. Also easy to navigate back to after a long day exploring. Ask for a lagoon view! Breakfast was a delicious European style breakfast and left us satisfied for our long sightseeing days. The only thing we'd... More

Having visited Venice in September last year we wanted to see more of it and to enjoy better weather than when we were last here. Well, the weather was fantastic (in the 30's from when we arrived until we left, and the choice of hotel was really great. We had a standard room on the first floor which was basic... More

I made a reservation by Booking and we expected a ground floor room. At the check in the reception told us they reserved a better room on the first floor at the same price. That was really fantastic news. The room was tiny, bigger then excepted. Toilet was not small as I could thought and has everything you need. Bed... 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.
