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.

Got there at 6am for 2pm checkin and they were kind enough to clean our room first and have it ready by 10am. The room was very large and very clean and we were shocked how nice it was and only 45 euro a night. Location was great and the staff extremely helpful. They even gave is umbrellas when it... More

This is our first trip to Venice, so landing at the water-taxi stop after dark and trying to find the tourist house was too much of a challenge for us. Venice is notoriously hard to navigate, although we were getting the hang of it by the time we left! We had to ask for directions 4 times, and found it... More

Having just arrived in the city of canals with little orientation and only a street map, finding this place was a challenge. There are no signs save the small plaque on the door, so the entrance is hard to find. Also, you check in at a different, hard to find hotel around several corners and switchbacks from San Lio.

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.
