Stayed here for two nights and what a pleasure it was. This was easy enough to find from the Ospidale water bus drop-off, with it being a 5-10 minute walk from here. I was expecting space to be a premium in the city, but the room was very big, actually being more of an apartment with separate bedroom; dining and... More

we have just returned from our three day wedding, held at the Palazzo Contarini. We had been planning this for 18 months and I can not tell you how fantastic both the venue and the staff were. Davide Satta worked tirelessly with us to plan each detail and make our 70 guests feel totally welcome. He was the recipient of... More

The staff was nice. The room was large, plenty of space. We also had the upstairs loft. Very neat furniture. It all looks antique so the room has much more character to it. The garden out back is peaceful. Restaurants in walking distance. Away from the crowds of main Venice. But, the air conditioning, both units, was broken in our... More

We stayed for 3 nights in Venice and this hotel was perfect. They provided a very detailed map and outlined the sites to see and how to get to them. After our first day we could get around easily and the map was the best piece of equipment we could have had while in Venice. The hotel is unique as... More

Beautiful hotel, sort of outside of the "touristy' area if there is such a thing in Venice. Once we found the hotel... Every one was extremely helpful. It's worth your time to walk around the inside of this hotel, it is very beautiful. Beds were comfortable. Shower was great. Can't comment on breakfast as we had our meals outside of... More

We stayed here as a family and the 3 bed apartment was perfect. This was our second time in Venice the first was as a couple in a more swanky hotel but this couldn't have been better for a family, plenty of space, with a living area, great shower and bath and nice communal areas and garden.

Perfect for families. Our apartment had three bedroom, all with very comfortable beds, a great shower and lots of space. The communal areas are great too. Wifi was slow but ok for mail etc. breakfast is extra but decent value for 13 euros.

Such a gem of a hotel, it's like living in your own palace for a few days, staff were friendly and attentive and the ambiance was like nothing I have experienced in a hotel before I Would highly recommend this hotel for a trip to venice. Our room Was light any airy yet retained the palace and historical feel.

What a fantastic hotel! Lovely clean room, friendly staff, great location and fantastic value. Brilliant bathroom with huge bath! I could not ask for more from this Hotel. We had a ground floor room with massive, comfortable bed that opened onto the pretty grassed area. Then in the day we were 10 mins walk from the San Marco square and... 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.
