We visited the aqua palace for our honeymoon. We had high hopes for the hotel and it was good, but not amazing. Some of our negatives may be positives for others, so I will try to be objective... The Positives... Amazing convenient location! So close to St Marks square and the Rialto bridge. A fantastic base to just meander around...

Just returned from a 3 night stay in Aqua Palace. Perfect hotel for a stay in Venice. Really comfortable bed and room, lovely breakfast and a five minute walk from all the main sights. All the staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Highly recommended. Would love to be going again!

I am currently staying at the Aqua Palace and I have a canal view room. The hotel itself is clean and nice, and the staff are all friendly. But, I am very glad tonight is my last night. I've tried to sleep in twice since I've been here, because after all I am on vacation. Well, every morning around 7:30...

Boutique hotel about three bridges away from ralto water taxi station. Very nice lobby and room deco. Room features high ceiling and exposure to bridge downstairs. Breakfast also decent but very small dining room here are the downsides: hotel staff are not as warm, not sure if it's language barrier or just local style. But even compared with those at...

We stayed for a week at the Aqua Palace hotel at one of the canal view suites. The property is very nice, clean, and conveniently located (5 minutes to Rialto bridge and another 5 minutes to Saint Mark's square). Breakfast was good, particularly in terms of service (Silvia was fantastic). The coffee was terrible though. The main problem was that...

Had a great 2 night stay at the Aqua Palace. Staff were lovely and helpful. Sylvia who is in charge of the breakfast does a great job. The palace has been decorated to a high standard. With all the candles lit in the evening looks quite magical. We prefer the small boutique hotels so the Aqua palace was right up...

Our stay was the beginning of a two week Italy vacation for my aunts and me (a total of 4 of us in two rooms). The hotel was perfectly located (quiet yet very close to San Marco Square), clean, updated, and the staff incredible accommodating. When we first arrived from the airport via water taxi, we were all extremely jet-lagged...

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.
