My partner and I received our trip to Venice as a gift, and Hotel Rio was booked as part of that so we didn't know what to expect. When we arrived the hotel was easy to find, being just a few minutes walk from the San Zaccaria water bus stop. This was perfect as when you arrive at Marco Polo... More

We loved this small hotel. Elegantly decorated, perfectly situated, and run by extremely friendly people. Our room was in the annex building with gorgeous wood beam ceilings and two large windows, making it very bright. 5 minutes to St Mark's square and restaurants, bars, pharmacy literally at the door. I doubt there are many orher places in Venice with this... More

Small, bright and clean hotel in the heart of Venice, on a small square minutes from St Marks. Service was good, Carlotta deserves a special mention, she even came up to our room with fresh milk for our morning cuppa! What lovely people! Breakfast was basic, if you want something special there are lots of great places to eat minutes... More

The staff were great. We arrived in Venice very late and we were very tired and bewildered as to how we would get to hotel. We called the hotel and they gave us great directions on which boat to catch and how to get there. Great location, beautiful restored building, pristine condition but room a little small

Located a 2 min walk from San Marco zacharria vaparetto, in a small square with restaurants below, hotel Rio is a lovely place to stay. We were put in the block behind the square, which for some people might not be what they were expecting as it was in a service area behind the restaurants. A little hum from the... More

Young couple on a small budget! Perfect location, room has everything you'd need and more! Including bottled water and tea and coffee refil in the room everyday. Was always spotless after the cleaner had whizzed round. Staff are polite and are willing to help with any request. Wifi was fast. Exceeds its two star rating.

Hotel is in excellent location close to San Marco and San Zakkaria vaporetto stop. The rooms are clean and cosy. The hotel must have been recently refurbished. Beds are very comfortable. Staff is fabulous, always present and ready to help. Breakfast has to be paid extra but it was worth it. Wifi in the rooms was good. Definitely a hotel... More

Hotel Location is Great, Close to MarcoPolo Square but still quite area and only 5 minutes walk from it. Staff is very friendly and really gave us a very important advice that save us time and money. try to locate it on maps before coming to Venice as you may take little time if not.

It's very clean and close to San Marco square and San Zaccaria vaporetto stop. In fact I couldn't believe how close I was to the Doges Palazzo and the bridge of sighs. The room aren't big but it was well designed with very shiny chrome fittings and nice decor making it seem much more expensive than the room rate. I... More

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.
