My room was great had a small stocked fridge. Great complimentary breakfast with a nice variety. The staff is super friendly and helpful. You have to take a water can or something to get there if not in Venice. I discovered Bellini and it's my all time favorite refreshment. Visit the beautiful mask store next door she's so friendly and... More

The staff was first class when we arrived. We got a very nice room which was spacious and with a very up to date when it comes to the standard of the room. The location was also very nice. A few houndred meters from the piazza st.marcus. Will definitely recommend this place to everyone.

After so many hotel reviews, it's the first time I give 1 point to a hotel for a reason. Trust me on this one! This is a 3* star hotel with overpriced tiny rooms even for Venice standards. That means that everything could be far better for what you pay. They have shady policies for children staying in the room.... More

This is a quaint little hotel well located in Venice. You can see the inner canals from your window. Staff at front desk were friendly and stored our luggage because room was not available early unfortunately. Breakfast room was lovely. Good basics, nothing fancy. However, the lady supervising the breakfast area made me a fabulous cappuccino! I would not hesitate... More

We had a great three night stay at this hotel. I strongly suggest you secure a room with a balcony and canal view. Breakfast was great with many options. The location was on a nice quiet canal yet very close to nice restaurants and the hectic St Mark's Square activity. Highly recommend and look forward to our return hopefully sooner... More

We were able to walk into the hotel without too much zigzagging. It was a nice big room filled with character and charm. Worth the money to get a nice big room. The only thing that I may suggest is getting the breakfast lady to be friendlier and perhaps teach her a little bit of English! Otherwise we had a... 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.
