San Lio is located few minutes from the Rialto Bridge. A great location to go to any part of Venice, which is best explored by walk. There is no service in this location. There are few restaurants nearby where one can grab croissant and coffee. The initial checking in can be a bit confusing. You will have to drop the... More

Couldn't of asked for more. Yes the hotel is a little difficult to find but that's Venice for you. I'm guessing we were lucky with the room as it was as the photos show. Lovely and clean with a seating area and nice bathroom. Location is fantastic and only a short walk to the main square with Rialto bridge about... More

If you choose economy room, don't look at the picture next to the room selection (booked on Expedia), you'll be hugely disappointed. Even on San Lio website the photographer did a good job to hide how bad the room looks. Stained smelly carpet in an old sad room is what you'll get.

The hotel it's nice and clean. I just wish finding the hotel would not be hard to find. After arriving to Saint Lucia via the ferry a 10 minutes walk to the check in office turned to one hour and half. I called to the office more than 2 times for directions and they couldn't help me. I had a... More

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

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.
