We spent only one night with Nicola at this home away from home but cannot wait to return! Nicola gave us a huge clean room, delicious breakfast and an amazing price. He gave us detailed instructions and met us on arrival, and attended to our every need. You could not find this service in a five star hotel. When we... More

My parents have just arrived back from a what they say's been a truly wonderful vacation from the very start where Nicole greeted them off the boat due to a late flight and guided them to his wonderful hotel. He promptly upgraded them to the family suite after finding out it was my mothers birthday. They have asked me to... More

Loved this place. It sits back in the residential part of Venice and is very quaint. We stayed 3 nights and had a double bedroom. Every morning, there was a wonderful choice of pastries, breads, cheeses, fruit, and yogurt to eat. The owner, Nicola, and his wife are lovely people and will share as much information as you would like... More

I've enjoyed our trip to Venice and we stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, it was an excellent choice. Its location just right, only 10-15 min walk to San Marco square. The area is very quite and peaceful. The room and bathroom is very clean and of a good size and air conditioned. The breakfast was good and fresh.

Not the fanciest place in the world but in my opinion all the better for it. Rooms are quite small, particularly the bathroom (the professional photo makes it look bigger), but charming and clean. We had the three-bedded, two-bedroom room at the front on the second floor - lovely and sunny in the morning but rather hot at night as... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon in October 2013. We wanted to visit Venice but stay away from the crowded areas. This place fits that bill; like others have said, Nicola can pick you up and take you through some wonderful old winding alleys and over canals past the Arsenal to get to the B&B. It's a lovely place and... More

My friend and I stayed for three nights in early October 2013 and we would definitely return. Nicola went out of his way to meet us at Arsenale to escort us to the B&B. It was a bit twisty to find but Nicola's hints about how to find our way back made it easy - we didn't get lost once!:-)... More

The experience of staying in "Oceano Mare" exceeded our expectations. It was lovely staying in an area where Venetians live and to be connected to it through Nicola who was able to recommend places to eat and visit. The B and B itself was well equipped, tastefully decorated perfectly comfortable, very clean, with breakfasts offering a good range of food.... More

Nice and calm neighbourhood, ideal when visiting Biennale, but within walking distance from centre as well. Nicola is very friendly and helpfull and meets you at Vaporetto to guide you to the B&B the first time. Rooms are very clean. Breakfast with coffee, tea, bread and cheese or marmelade, cake, fruit and yoghurt. We liked it a lot !!!!

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
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.
