We decided to head to Venice at short notice and booked the nice junior suite. It was a bit too big for u and it is better suited for a company of 4 to 5 persons. Nevertheless a perfect room with lots of space. We could have fitted a gondola in it I suppose. Hmmm! The room is spacious and... More

Positives: We liked the quieter location yet close proximity to St. Mark's Square. The front desk of Christina and Deborah were both fantastic and supremely helpful. The washrooms were also very clean and modern, while the breakfast was delicious and the lady who helped us make coffee there was just kind and nice overall. Negatives: Room was small for two...

We spent 4 days in Venice and could not have been happier with the hotel and the staff. The rooms were spacious and the Hotel offered a great breakfast.

My only real criticism is that the directions to the hotel could be so much better. We got caught in the rain struggling to find it.

The staff was very pleasant. Perfect location and walking distance to San Marks and the square. The hotel does need to acquire additional irons and boards. During our visit the iron broke and was not replaced. Hard to believe there was only one on the premises. Very nice hotel.

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.
