Very quaint hotel in an excellent location. Staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful. Enjoyed our stay here immensely The hotel is a little difficult to find for first time visitors and I would definitely arrange a porter if you are coming in on a water taxi from the airport

We booked a triple room in the Carnival period (3 days). The location is very good: only 5 minutes walking from San Marco square, you have a supermarket (!) 100 m in front of the hotel and a fruits market just in front. The room (the 1st floor) was clean and comfortable. The breakfast is typical italian: very poor and... More

Hotel itself look oldish but comfortable enough. Location is just with the minutes from famous places for visitors, but I found difficult to find this hotel since I arrived to Rialto from the airport. In general I enjoyed my stay at Scandinavia hotel. Thank you all. Looking forward to come back next year !

stayed for 3 nights in this 1000 year old hotel. good old style accommodation in a great position 7-10 walk to St Marks Square or Rialto Bridge. very good breakfast, but air- conditioning and wi-fi not the best - although both function okay in public areas. very helpful and friendly staff.

Fabulous hotel, once you find it! Not so easy to get to. If you have heavy bags and are coming by local transport - ask them to arrange a porter for 25 euro to take your luggage for you. Lovely location easy walking to the square and Rialto bridge. Square front view rooms are lovely. The front desk girls are... More

The hotel overlooks a square ideally situated halfway between the airport transfer boat stops and San Marco Square, each only a 5-10 minute walk away. We were on the top floor which took a while to reach as there are no lifts, but the room was quite adequate with air conditioning (necessary with the 32 degree heat at the time)... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are nice. Great wifi coverage Yummy breakfast with an automated coffee machine. Location is good. I would probably opt for a line closer to the ferries next time though.

It is difficult to describe our stay at Hotel Scandinavia! Whilst staying in Venice during peak season my husband was hospitalised the day before we were due to fly home. The hotel we were staying at was fully booked and luckily for us they organised a transfer to Hotel Scandinavia. From the minute I arrived the staff were wonderful. They... More

Although presented with directions from the Vaporetta it was difficult to negotiate the narrow streets and bridges to find the hotel. However the very warm welcome by the receptionist made up for it. Luckily our room was on the first floor so the lack of any lift was not a problem. The room was adequate overlooking the square , air... 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.
