Close to all attractions in Venice, but a long walk from boat stop when you have to haul a luggage, and the place is hard to find. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean room, although dated. Caveat: No elevator.

I cannot praise the staff in this hotel highly enough. Warm and friendly greetings from everyone everyday and Eleanora the receptionist was a mine of information as to where to eat and the quickest way to get from A to B. Breakfast was varied and plentiful, don't understand some of the other reviewers negative comments. The rooms are serviced daily.... More

This was the last of 3 hotels we stayed in while in italy, and probably my least favorite, although it was fine overall. The only things I really didn't like were 1)the fact that we were on the 3rd floor and there was no elevator and 2) breakfast was nowhere near decent. Coffee was more like brown steamed milk, and...

Reasonably priced by Venice standards. Conveniently located a short stroll from heaving throngs of St. Marks et al. Rooms were fine, on the tight side, nothing to write home about. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The two things going for this hotel are its location and its staff. Overall not good value for money. We had a room with no view other than the building next door you could just about touch. This was on the 3rd floor, no elevator, steap stairs The breakfast is non existent, go to a cafe. The room was reasonable... More

The hotel rooms are good and the good part ends there. If you can get a good view room, that is a bonus. Breakfast is bad and dry. No hot stuff. Location is difficult as Venice is itself a maze and finding this hotel can be a challenge if visiting Venice for the first time. We took one hour to... More

We booked this hotel through our airline when booking our flights. While relatively simple the hotel is quite central - 10 minutes at most to both the Rialto and St Mark's Square - the rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast more than adequate. The staff we met were very friendly and helpful. Our only "hardship" was being on... More

We booked at another hotel, who walked us to this "sister hotel" and said we had to stay at Hotel Scandinavia. The hotel appeared very old and run down; no elevator; minimal breakfast, view onto a roof of wires and gutters; the bed was akin to sleeping on a board with bedding one might have seen 50 years ago.

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.
