The place was very nice, sweet and romantic in the middle of Venice close to the Piazza San Marco, just a few minutes walk and just a minute or two from Ponte de Rialto. It was a bit difficult finding at first , before you understood how, but easier after a while. I will come back for sure.

We got to Venice around 5:30 and were confused about the "bus" system they have so we asked somebody. No one knew how to find this place or even where San Lio was or they were just being rude I couldn't tell. We finally got an answer that we had to go on bus #2 to Rialto. When we got... More

Spent a week here and enjoyed the proximity to everything in Venice. Glorija was very responsive and helpful as was Alex. However this is a self catering apartment so nobody is actually on premise. 5 min to San Marco 5mis to Rialto, "super market" one block. Go native here! Nice old building , comfortable as well as clean.

We thought we were going in for a hostel but instead got a kind of motel - and we're still not sure if that's a good or bad thing. The location is great - it's a bit hard to find at first, but it's only about 7 minutes walk from St Mark's Square. The check in is annoying - we... More

As a last minute booking at a discounted rate, this place was surprisingly better than expected. The room (economy double) was small, the bathroom especially, but the bed was roomy. The air conditioner was amazing during the summer heat and the big open window made you feel in the heart of the hustle and bustle of the city, a tad... More

This guest house is in a really good place, just 5 minutes from Rialto bridge and really close to San Marco.There are a lot of restaurants close, so you don't have to worry about the food. There is a coffee machine available all the time that provides coffee and hot chocolate. The check-in point is in another place(ca' bragadin,5minutes walk),... More

We came in from the Cruise Ship for a night stay and experienced the strangest check in ever. You walk to the hotel from the Rialto Bridge via a difficult map they send you (we got lost) and a door amongst the retail stores with a small plaque. You push the buzzer and you are let into the hallway which... More

We just returned from our trip to Venice, and we stayed at San Lio TH. The room we had was simple and small, but the location was great, it has a good shower and bed and that's what counts. Good stuff!

We went on vacation for 3 nights in this lovely (what we thought it would be) hotel in Venice. However, when we arrived we god a double bed room which was not at all what we paid for! We were expecting a nice room as shown in the pictures, however we got a ridiculously tiny room with a very very... More

The location is excelent. In the middle of the island, close to stores, cofee shops, restaurants for all budgets and two blocks from the Rialto ship stop and 10 minutes to San Marcos. The room is clean, modern and comfortable.

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.
