First time in Venice so did a lot of research building up to the trip. Venice is a very compact city but this Hotel is in a great location, combined with a great team of staff from the cleaners, maids and front desk staff. The interior is spotless however the exterior is typical Venice very old but don't be put... More

The hotel is a hop, skip & jump from the Rialto Bridge, so it's quite in the thick of things. It's located in a quiet square so the area is not very noisy, considering how close it is to a major tourist attraction. It's a great place to stay if you want to visit the Rialto market when it opens,... More

I have just returned from the Alla Fava after a three day stay and what a fabulous little place this is. We stayed in room 118 and it was a lovely little room, very clean and the water was always hot. Breakfast was adequate to start you on a day of exploration of the many beautiful sites Venice has to... More

Great location. Quiet and picturesque yet close to Rialto. Spotlessly clean and comfortable room overlooking a small canal. Pleasant receptionist. A wonderful experience in a small and charming hotel. Well done!

Maybe at the first glance you'll think: is this weathered old building is really a hotel? Get inside and you'll soon change your mind. It was a classic style interior that changed our perception that was made by the dull exterior (well we found that most buildings in venice are also like this though). We were greeted warmly with the... 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.
