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

Loved this hotel. The staff was very helpful. Nice, clean rooms. Loved sitting outside in the morning watching the piazza setting up their stands and watching it come alive. Enjoyed the location and the staff helped us find great places to eat.

A few blocks from the noise and hustle of St Marks square. For a 700 year old building, it is in very good condition. Open balcony to square below. great hot breakfast served every morning. Reasonably priced. great value for the money. Staff spoke english as well as I did and could not be more accommodating and pleasant. Air Conditioner... More

We had a reasonable sized double room with air conditioning that struggled to cope with the extremely high temperatures at the time of our visit. The room was comfortable if slightly dated and had a decent bathroom with shower stall. Breakfast was buffet style and of a good standard. Hotel staff were friendly and most helpful and cases were moved... More

Hotel was very good, reception staff very pleasant and extremely helpful. The hotel is in a very convenient location. The room and bathroom were large and well equipped, with a comfortable area to sit and look out over the piazza.

This central hotel is a nice choice for your vacations but make sure u pack light. There is only a way to get there and it's on foot. And if you have never been here it's not easy to find. The locals can sometimes direct you but I guess w thousand ppl lost everyday it might get tedious to be... More

After carrying our bags from the vapparetto station by San Marco to the Hotel Scandinavia on a hot evening and then finding out our room was on the fourth floor (no elevator) my initial reaction wasn't great. But the air conditioning worked well, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom roomy. On the following days the friendly and helpful staff... 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.
