Stayed during the carnaval, lovely hotel with all you need, really well located, plumbing is good, clean with fresh towels and linen, breakfast is basic and good. The only reason why it is 4/5 is because hotel is a bit tired inside and could do with small renovation.

This was a lovely hotel. A short 5 minute walk from the Rialto bridge and in a charming square. On arrival luggage was taken to my room on the third floor (please note there are no lifts). Receptionist was incredibly friendly and helpful giving me a map and marking a variety of hints and tips onto it. The room was... More

Friendly reception, stunning room, amazing view and the best atmosphere with Campo Formosa under our window!!! Highly highly recommended. Guiseppe at reception was the most helpfull and friendliest person we have met on our entire European trip. This place has made me love Venice even more!!

Were there in the late summer 2015. Booked 4 months prior - really good idea for this city. Water taxi stop pretty close by - 5 minute walk. Hotel picturesque. Clean rooms with antiques, except for the bathroom. Excellent on that-better than some 4 star hotels. Walk up to rooms challenging for super seniors, which we had in our party.... More

Visited Venice 24-27 November and stayed here. Lovely hotel easy walking distance to everywhere. Staff were so friendly smiling all the time. Hotel room was lovely, little bit of noise in the morning but that's just Venetians going about their daily business. Continental breakfast absolutely fine and set us up for the day. Really nice square and easy walking distance... More

The staff are very helpful and polite. The location is great lots of shops, restaurants and tourist spots within walking distance. The room was excellent and the hotel is uniquely designed, which we liked.

We have just returned from a couple of nights at this hotel,we found that the directions given on the website made it extremely easy to find.We found that the reception staff were first class, very helpful and knowledgeable. The room was spotlessly clean but it would not be ideal for people with walking difficulties as there were 68 steps to... More

Good location, big rooms, old-fashioned, breakfast could've been better. Very helpful staff at the reception. Thank God, they had boys to carry our luggage upstairs! The view from our room was marvellous

Hotel Scandinavia is well located, just across Campo Santa Maria Formosa. We accessed the hotel from the Railway station, by Vaporrato 2 to Realto Bridge and then on foot through the quaint labyrinth of walkways. Barely 10 mins from Realto on its right, it is quite close to the city's main attraction, Campo San Marco, around 12 mins walk. The... More

Best for romantic minds with a sense for murano glass lamps and mirrors, and with a perfect square in front, some normal life, and easy to walk both to zaccharia or rialto. Wonderful people help you to feel good there! Friendlyness is authentic, and hints are reliable. And mind the bar opposite, nect to the bridge. Good place, local people... 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.
