Ok so hotels in Venice are cheap, but this is a great small tourist class hotel in a good central location for a good price by Venice standards. The hotel is tastefully decorated and has a lot of character, rooms are very pleasant and clean, breakfast is adequate if not outstanding, and staff are pleasant and friendly. No hesitation to...

I visited Venice with a friend as part of a backpacking trip around Europe. As poor students we had a very small budget and it was sheer luck that led us to Hotel Alla Fava. We were looking at hostels but they were all off the main island so we decided to look at hotels and low and behold we... More

Only a few mins walk from Rialto bridge and about 5 mins to St Marks Square. Easy to find way back to by following Rialto bridge signs. Was nice to stay in an old building. The room was clean but the room was very small! Didn't spend a lot of time in the room so it didn't bother us. Breakfast... More

We booked two rooms via booking.com for my boyfriend and his son and myself in January. Unfortunately due to a family emergency in Australia, we have had to cancel all of our trips for the next six weeks. I accept that terms and conditions are strict and that I booked a non-refundable room to the hotel is of course entitled... More

Dear Adele_Ir, we thank you for your review. We just need to clarify some points as we think this is right in respect of our past and future guests.

Our first visit to Venice with the family and we were blown away by its beauty. And staying at this hotel made it all a better experience. It's strategically located near the rialto bridge and just a few minutes walk to most popular spots. Rooms and hotel grounds are clean too. Our breakfast was pleasant and satisfying. All in all,...

Venice is gorgeous if you still to the grand canal. When we finally get to the hotel theres some graffiti near by. Thats a little concerning.

Dear Tunkerbel, We are very sorry you didn't enjoy your stay at our hotel. You should have informed about Venice: there's not much space so the rooms of the hotels are not so big as in other cities.

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.
