This 2 star hotel has one star too many. It is Venice and hotel prices are exorbitant especially when George Clooney is town but this was not good value. We paid good money, the equivalent of a 5 star hotel back home, but this hotel is of a very low standard. It is hard to find, no one at tiny... More

After a bit of struggle to find the Hotel from the Waterbuses the rest of the stay couldn't have been better. We were there for only the one night and the staff were more than accommodating with free breakfast and also went out her way to get our room ready before the stated check-in time. The location was great after... More

Very small hotel located away from the hustle and bustle of Central Venice, it's a 10 minute stroll to St Mark's Square. Some of the rooms enjoy lagoon views which for a hotel on this budget level is impressive. Due to the lack of space the lobby doubles up as the breakfast area which some may find unacceptable. Friendly staff,... More

There was no lift and our rooms was on the top floor The hotel itself is old, but vintage, fascinating.It was a nice place to stay as long as you are not fussy and high demand with amenities. Very excellent, easy accessibility to the Plaza Maria Formosa, restaurant and shop.

We had actually booked to stay at the main property - Ca'Malipiero, which is right around the corner from Ca'Formosa. That property was pretty disgusting to be honest, so when we were told we would be staying in the sister property, despite our initial annoyance, we were relieved when we were taken to Ca'Formosa. To keep it brief, I'll list... More

My wife and I just returned from a trip to Italy and our first stop was in Venice. Our trip included a visit to the major cities in Italy and two of those nights would be in Venice. We booked this hotel based on it's proximity to local water transportation and to the San Marco Piazza which undoubtedly is the... More

My husband and I stayed here last month and had a nice time. It can get slightly tricky to find the place but if you have a map in your phone then you should be good to go. Do ask a couple of shopkeepers on your way to confirm the location. We reached the hotel in the evening and found... More

After being so many times in Venice I think to have some experience regarding accomodations. I was a little bit scary by reading some negative reviews about this place and I decided to give a try. First of all when you choose to stay in a "locanda" ( I mean in a real locanda, not in a hotel called locanda... 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.
