Took shared water taxi from Airport to Sant Elena water stop. Easy few minute walk to hotel from dock with very friendly and efficient staff to welcome you. Arrived before check in time but room was ready. Had a nice 3rd floor King bed room overlooking the lovely courtyard. Was given complimentary drink tickets also. The room was nicely furnished...

Nice hotel away from the crowds. From the outside, hotel looks unassuming but once inside it has modern facilities and very friendly staff. Our room was really nice and breakfast was good value. Hotel is a reasonable walk from the main areas, but we found this worked well to see hidden parts of Venice and between meals.

My mum and I stayed at this hotel for four nights from 30/7/16. The staff were lovely, very helpful. Great location- quiet and peaceful area but close to the centre. The water boat stop was very nearby- we got a 3 day pass and this was great value for money. The breakfast was excellent, lots of choice. Room was clean... More

Had a great hotel for a first trip to Venice. The location seems a little out of the way when you first get here, but once you get your bearings it is a smashing location. 15 minutes walk to St Marks; 2 minutes walk to the Vaparetto stop; 10 minutes ride from the Lido. Comfortable and clean rooms. Decent bar,... More

We arrived at Marco Polo airport and got a bus onto Venice island. From there we decided to take the vaporetto Line 1 (takes an hour) down the Grand Canal to the stop by the hotel. If you have time I strongly recommend doing this - it's a wonderful introduction to Venice. We arrived at sunset and it was perfect.... More

Spent 3 nights with the family at this wonderful hotel. We were eleven, aged 5 to 65. A pleasant walk to the center of town, we were very comfortable in a quiet neighborhood with parks and local eateries and steps from the water bus.. Very clean and accommodating. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants great and peaceful.

A nice little hotel in Venice. close by the river boat and a 20 minutes walk to the main areas. the advantage is being on the main island but not in the busy part so it is quiet. nice rooms. i recommand it

everything is good. The location is far away from city center but near the water bus station. In addition, is there no exhaust fan or similar fan in the bath room? After a shower, I can not bear the high temperature. Unfortunately, there is no room upgrade depending on the situation of fully-booked. The restaurant of the hotel is excellent.... 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.
