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

This is a cozy B&B right in the heart of Venice. The location is great with quick short walks to S. Marco and Rialto. The owner is very nice. He does not speak to much English but does well. He is very helpful and goes out of his way to get you the information you need.

A privately-run B&B in a historic Venetian house and a truly charming place! I love how authentic feel of the house and antique decor, and comfort provided my the modern conveniences (WiFi, air conditioning, elevator, and, of course, espresso machine in the breakfast room) merge so well there. Superb location - very central (5 min walk from Rialto and San... More

We have recently returned from two nights at B&B San Firmino. The location was excellent, although difficult to find when our iPhones told us the wrong building! We arrive by train and then took the number 2 water bus one stop to Rialto Bridge. The building is only 5 minutes walk from there but unfortunately we kept getting lost because... 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.
