A wonderful old venetian building, full of character and pieces of art. We had a 2 double bedroom suite, the rooms have beamed ceilings, full of unique details and are spacious and clean. Modern bathroom. The owner has been super friendly and would highly recommend, its like staying in a piece of history. My only minor criticism would be a... More

This is not a review of the rooms or locations; I believe most of the other reviews are more or less correct. This is a WARNING not to try to make reservations ahead of time. If you plan on reserving a hotel in Venice, there are plenty of other places without a history of credit card fraud. When I attempted... More

I've made an account just because how bad this place is! So, we booked 2 nights here in August, because of the overall good reviews from booking.com. But trust me, ignore all those positive reviews and read the negative ones it explains THIS PLACE. (i doubt that the positive reviews are from actual guests)...u know what I mean. So first... More

We stopped here for two nights. The owner is one of the friendliest people I've met and whilst his English may not be very good his willingness to help was excellent. His cappuccino's are very good. We checked in and we were taken to our room which was through the breakfast area, a small room with 3 or 4 tables.... More

When I first came here this noon, I thought it looked good but as of now I cannot sleep because the air-conditioner doesn't help cool the room at all, even at its highest setting. I've also spotted FIVE cockroaches so far and ONE CENTIPEDE roaming freely in the bathroom and bedroom. I honestly don't know how many more there are... More

There are many options of hotel and airbnbs that will be a better choice for your visit. First, they reported to me two of my credit cards did not work. So I booked somewhere else. Then two weeks later, without any action from me, they reran my credit card and charged me for a booking the next day. I contacted... More

This is right in the middle of Venice, a short walk from just about everything. Right on a canal (although pretty much everything is), I'd say about half way between St. Marks and the Rialto Bridge, above a restaurant. We had a 2 bedroom room for the 3 of us (there are not a lot of places that have a... More

We stayed with a family of 4 in a spacious family room and really enjoyed our stay. Our room had a private entrance which was kind of nice for coming / going without having to walk through the shared sitting room. The room itself was beautiful with classic furniture - there was a bedroom and then a separate room that... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in mid-October, 2014. While the location is great, the room was spacious and the host was nice, there are few things that really made it so we would not stay here again. - First, I emailed in advance to make sure I could get a canal view room. Host confirmed, and that's what I... 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.
