Stayed here in March 2015 for 3 nights. Excellent location, close to Rialto, San Marco and all the other tourist sights. Breakfast was basic but plentiful and they were even able to offer me gluten free bread and cakes (booked in advance). Our room was comfortable and the decor amazing.The building is very old and has a few idiosyncrasies! Our... More

The service is really good, well situated, and receptionist absolutely adorable. Nice room, very clean. If you ask, you can have a nice view, too ! I really recommand. You are at 10 min from San Marco, and very close to other nice places to visit and go out !

save yourself some headaches and book this friendly, honest, and clean hotel, situated on a beautiful plaza in center Venice. there are, unfortunately, many dishonest b&b's and hosts in Venice and it's crucial that travelers post reviews and alert fellow travelers of scams as well as honest places. this is a profoundly honest place and that alone should earn it...

Made reservations at Residenza Laguna, who is reported to over-book and then dump their guests at "sister hotels" after charging guests' credit cards. 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...

My husband and I stayed here with our ten year old granddaughter in early April '15. The staff were just amazing. Couldn't do enough for us. Also gave us good information and help in making our holiday special. The room (no 4) was comfortable and very clean. Being at the back of the building was actually an advantage as it... More

A charming old hotel in a handy location for exploring the whole of Venice. nearby to restaurants piazza san marco. A great advantage for longer term travellers is the little laundry located in the side street next to the hotel. The people who run it have little English but they do a good job at a reasonable price. Breakfast at... More

We booked a package via BA, the reviews for the hotel were good so we gave it a go. The staff at the hotel were all very helpful, showed us places to go as a walking tour and even pointed us in the right direction for a good restaurant. The room was fine, comfy bed, bathroom a little on the... More

Great location close to St. marks square, 3 floors no elevator. Breakfast was croissants, yogurts and cappuccino. Do not expect eggs or ham for breakfast. Good customer service helpful staff. Comfortable beds. Overall good value. Close to many restaurants and gondolas.

We stayed here with our family for a few days at the end of our Italian tour. The location was fabulous, close to everything we needed and just a short walk from Piazza San Marco. The service was incredible, helping draw out a walking tour and making arrangements for a water taxi to pick us up at 3:00 am. It... More

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.
