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

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

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.
