We loved our stay in this central B & B. Good price, comfortable room and adequate breakfast. Nicola is a superb host. Very attentive and entertaining. Would definitely recommend to others and would visit again.

We had a great time at the B&B of Nicola and his wife. We really enjoyed his perfect (24 hour) service (personal or per sms or by phone). He picked us up at Arsenale, gave us perfect advices for restaurants (our favourites: Al vecio portal, Pizzeria al fonte (try the crude pizza with mozzarella, ruccola and tomatoes), Al vecio calise...

You will enjoy Nicola's above-and- beyond hospitality. He will meet and greet you at the Arsenale ferry station, help pull your luggage to his bed and breakfast through turn after turn of small side streets. Be prepared to have a calibrated compass or accurate GPS on your smart phone and memorize your route back to the hotel. The area is... More

Oceano Mare is a comfortable, reasonably priced B&B. Our room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the location is perfect. The B&B is in a nice, quiet little neighborhood. Nicola bought me gluten free breakfast items and he is just a treasure. He is pleasant, welcoming and a great host. I will go back to Oceano Mare and Venice... More

What a great B&B! Nicola is so friendly and helpful in every way. The location is perfect - peaceful and untroubled by tourists and yet within an easy walk of pretty much everything. Comfortable room, air con, good breakfast and all ata very reasonable rate. We'd stay again anytime. (Try restaurant 'Da Jonny' in Campo de le Gate around the.... More

This was our first visit to Venice. I have to say that Nicola helped us a lot from the start. Without request he offered to pickup us from ferry and show best route to Oceano Mare. He also instructed of some nice local places to have glass of wine. And he even gave us his number if we get lost... More

The Ocean Mare B & B is only minutes from San Marcos square by foot, but has the advantage of being in a nice quiet neighborhood with friendly proprietor and surroundings. This is a very wonderfully managed, small hotel that can be booked for very reasonable rates even in season. We stayed there for 1 week and was constantly impressed... More

Staying here was one of the top 3 highlights of our 6 week trip to the UK & Europe. It was the most friendly, clean and comfortable B&B you could hope to find. And Nicola, the owner, is the best and most helpful host you could wish for. He met us at the ferry to show us the way to... More

He promptly upgraded them to the family suite after finding out it was my mothers birthday. They have asked me to... 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.
