The aqua Palace was in a wonderful location close to St Marks Square and in a busy area of Venice. The room was large and had Windows that opened up to the canal. Comfortable bed and had a good breakfast with great service! Would recommend to anyone looking for a fantastic hotel in Venice.

We enjoyed a 4 day stay here. A travel agent had booked it for us and the pictures make it look tacky so I was a little hesitant. We arrived by train from Venice. We had paid for transport from the train station to the hotel. The person who met us told us that the boat taxi would drop us... More

The location is excellent. Completely away from the mobs and clouds of smoke. Very friendly staff and not a bad breakfast. The rooms are not wonderful, but still quite nice although the bed felt more like a sheet of plywood with a verrrryyyyy light pad. All in all, a decent and somewhat gaudy stay, but definitely worth a return if... More

This hotel is lovely. We arrived and booked two rooms. The first king room had a gorgeous view of the gondola ride below. The second was a king with a separate living room, in which they made up two twin size beds for my daughters. It was so accommodating and comfortable. The rooms were beautiful and clean & had great... More

We stayed here for 8 days on our honeymoon! Our junior suit was spacious and lovely. Always clean and the air conditioning was outstanding. The staff was always helpful and polite. At the arrival we were complimented by the hotel with a bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate our honeymoon. The breakfast was the best of everything, every morning we... More

Right from the point of booking, the staff at the Aqua Palace were great. We were celebrating our anniversary so I contacted the hotel ahead of time to arrange for prosecco and roses in the bedroom and this was no problem. I also enquirer about several other items prior to the trip (private water taxis, restaurants catering for people with... More

We were in an amazing four bedrooms suite! Bedroom and bathroom are really big, well decorated and very comfortable! The location is fantastic, easy to walk to São Marcos Square and to the boat to get to train station. And all employees are great!

This hotel us centrally located and you are a short walk to many of the great sights and the grand canal. There is a gondola stop right by the lobby entrance so it is a nice area. The staff is very attentive and took such good care of us. The breakfast was very good and the rooms were large and... 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.
