Hello!I have to say that the owners are very nice and really want to welcome you as best they can. The house is clean, the attic is very romantic and has good height and it seems like we have a venice house to ourselves. We felt very welcomed, the area is very silent and has small and cheap restaurants and... More

We had a perfect welcome to the B&B Giardini. The owner, Roberto, expected us at the corner of the main street because he has heard our concerns about getting lost in Venice (our book pointed out the guidelines very difficult in Venice, actually the B&B is very easy to find and guidelines supplied by Roberto and Marina were perfect). However,... More

We loved our stay in the apartment, and the hosts, Roberto and Marina, so I was quite surprised at the recent review. I think it depends what you are expecting and hoping for. I was interested in staying where the locals were and experiencing their culture. I wanted a clean apartment and friendly, helpful, and trustworthy hosts. I wanted to... More

My partner and I consider ourselves to be very laid back/easy going people. Neither of us are quick to complain about anything really which should place a larger amount of weight on this very poor review. Initially our booking was changed from the attic to the apartment on the owner’s recommendation. I specifically asked if the attic had a view... More

Dear Ms. Carryn Suckling, I have been astonished and grieved reading your review. It's the first time that somebody says that my apartment is dirty and smells musty and that my son is exceptionally unfriendly. If there was dirty cleaning equipment in the living room it was because my son and the plumber were trying until the last moment before... More

Like stated from the owner, it's a (quiet big) penthouse which was recently modernized, warm and lies in a residents' area with nice prices for the substinence. If you're flexible, the room should be no problem. Bread, Coffee, Tea, Juice, Joghurt, Butter, Jam, Cake is offered. But you have to warm up the bread and do the coffee yourself- it... More

We were greeted by Marina, the owner, who had very well prepared the arrival. We had the attic room, which is very romantic, clean, newly furnished and absolutely silent in the nights. It was a pity that we couldn't use the terrace because it was very cold. But this is a good reason to go back in summer. Price is... More

After booking a room at Giardini through venere.com, I was sent an email from the B&B telling me that the attic was available. Riccardo stated that the ceiling was low and that if we were "Tall' folks we would possibly want to cancel. So.....we decided we were a little too tall for that room. We agreed and decided to cancel... More

I have booked the place for my parents and their friends; the place looked really nice on the web site pictures. It was really different when they got there: not the same furnitures than showed, most ot the equipment was out of order (ventilator, lamp bulbs...); the dishes in the kitchen were not enough for four people, the breakfast was...

We were very suprised when we arrived to the B&B Giardini. You have to walk through their living room to get to the very small staircase. Make sure you have very small bags as it is hard to get them up the stairs. Also unless you are under 5feet tall you will hit your head more than once. The views... More

An extremely memorable, enjoyable stay here at the B&B Giardini. It is difficult to capture the atmosphere of the attic in photos: wooden ceilings with bright sky windows, very comfy double bed with side tables and lamps, wardrobe, drawers, bookcase and chairs; table with chairs and coffee machine (moka pot); fridge; ensuite bathroom with window that overlooks the canal. Indeed... 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.
