Visited here on a week tour of Italy with my girlfriend, hotel was easy to find and was located very near to the magnificent st marks square with the basilica and the bell tower. It was also a few minutes walk to the famous bridge of sighs, doges palace and the waterbus station san zaccaria. Hotel staff were friendly and... More

Booked here after looking up super high score at Booking.com. Close to the heart of Venice, San Marco square. A Room is neat and clean with a nice air conditioning system. A bathroom is bit small but you can have a nice hot shower and pretty good amenities compared to price of room. Complimentary tea set with bottle water, tea... More

This is a great find, very reasonably priced and in a great area. The staff is so kind and helpful, especially Carlotta. We definitely felt welcome and at home. The room was very clean and the continental breakfast was well worth the extra €6.50. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

I did not stay at this hotel as my husband and I had booked our accommodation at a nearby hotel which turned out to be totally unsuitable. Desperate to find accommodation in a very busy city, a staff member at the local restaurant suggested we try Hotel Rio. Unfortunately, they were totally booked but their evening staff clerk called no... More

Went here with my girlfriend on a minibreak before my birthday in December '15. Didn't think the hotel was as difficult to find as some here think, but I had google maps helping me. Either way, it's a superb location. Turn out the hotel, walk right and you cross a bridge opposite the Bridge of Sighs. Keep walking and you're... More

This hotel was by far the best value I could find in such a great location. I was not disappointed! Five minutes from St Marks Square and lots of lovely eateries around. Really convenient for the water buses too. The room we stayed in was in the annexe part of the building at the top, on 2 levels with the... More

Easy to locate. 3-5 mins away from the San Zaccaria dock and also 5 minutes away from St Marks Square. No lifts in the hotel, thus have to climb up the stairs with big heavy luggages and the stairs are pretty narrow too. We got the room at the Annex which was small and cosy, and not too noisy. Room...

NEGATIVES: No elevators and you have to lift your luggage on very tiny stairs. ( No rooms in the ground floor ) Small rooms. However, if you get a superior room it will have some extra space. No mirrors in the standard rooms not even in the bathroom. Very noisy ( From the street and very thin walls ). POSITIVES:... More

Perfect location - 30 secs from St Marks Square. Nice room/decor. Nice/helpful staff. Great price. When searching for hotels in Venice I really struggled (I'm quite fussy!) - most are very 'Venetian' and therefore quite old fashioned but very expensive! I hesitated booking the Rio because it seemed too good to be true, but glad I did - it was... More

We recently stayed here for 4 nights over the second week of November. I couldn't rate this hotel highly enough. There are a couple of elements that make this a great place to stay. 1. Only a stones throw form St Marks Square. 2. The price was great value for such a good location. 3.The staff were so welcoming and... 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.
