My family and I had a stop over in Venive and spent 3 nights at this Taverna. It is based over the Restraunt and I think only has 3 rooms. We required a room with space for 4 of us and we were welcomed by very plessant staff and the room was excellent with space for a very large double... More

We have booked 2 nights at this B&B hotel in the heart of Venice. However we cannot consider this is a hotel by any standard as it has only 4 rooms and is situated on the 1st floor of a restaurant. The rooms are big and reasonably clean with separate air conditioning. Actually Taverna San Lio is run by the... More

Stayed about a year ago. A small b&b above a little cafe / restaurant. Good location, but a little tricky to find at the first time of asking. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was very basic. Overall pretty decent value for money given prices in venice. Is this the smartest accommodation in the world - no, but it... More

This was a return trip to Venice and we managed to find the restaurant we had enjoyed a few years ago. We chose the Tourist Menu as it is such good value 19 Euros and the restaurant was just as we remembered it. The staff are very attentive and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant - first... More

Bottom line: while the room was decent, this property was falsely advertised and not at all what I expected. Superb location. The Taverna San Lio is not a hotel, an inn, or a B and B. It is 4 renovated rooms on the second floor of a somewhat dilapidated building. The room itself was decent, and breakfast was OK, but... More

Our room was spacious and clean and was on a lovely alley a bit away from the crowds but an easy walk to the Rialto Bridge and San Marcos Square. The restaurant below served an included continental breakfast with delicious home made rolls and pastry but it was minimal with no protein. We ate dinner and lunch at the restaurant... More

The rooms are street facing and were extremely noisy. The owners have a restaurant downstairs and we heard loud talking and people on the streets all night. The room is spacious and breakfast is the worst I've had in Italy. Stale cake and warm bread and nothing else. For the price you pay, all you get back is worth peanuts.... More

Very very good. Both the pizza and the meat we ordered were the best we ate during our stay in Venice. It's a bit tricky to find these small tavernas when you walk around, but often much better than the usual touristic restaurants. Don't miss it!

Stayed 1 night on our 23 day backpacking trip through Europe and everything at this quaint b&b was perfect for an affordable short stay. Nice large bedroom/bathroom and the restaurant downstairs is worth a stop as well. Thanks for hospitality! Ciao!

We stayed at the Taverna San Lio at the end of June for three nights. The main consideration for choosing the hotels was it's central location, and proximity to the main sights - we were not to be disappointed. Although we booked via Hotels.com, we received some really good communication direct from the hotel, with clear instructions, such as advice... 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.
