This was booked through monastery stays - the booking was easy, and they made two or three changes as people changed their arrival dates. The location is by the public gardens of Venice, down a tiny street near a vaporetto stop. Just up from there is the Via Giuseppe Garabaldi with a nice selection of restaurants. It is a long...

This hotel is a religious house. It overlooks a large play area for children. I give it 10/10 for location because it is on the edge of the tourist areas but next to a quiet park area. There is a number of restaurants within a two minute walk of the hotel. The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean. The beds... More

The Don Bosco's guesthouse is well situated : you are in front of the Giardini, ten minutes from the Piazza San Marco away. It is a real advantage! We, I and other students from Belgium, were warmly welcomed by the Salesiani: each morning, everybody says "Biongiurno" to each other. The atmosphere is relaxing and calm. However, the breakfast food wasn't... More

Patronato Salesiano Leone XIII It would be hard to fault this ‘no frills’ accommodation in Venice which although a little way out from the centre is situated in a peaceful quarter of the city. The value for money is excellent and the accommodation provides all that one needs (apart from a television in the room – which you don’t need!)... More

This Don Bosco's guesthouse is located in a quieter part of Venice surrounded by tree-lined streets and a large park - which no one believes. It is just 10 minutes walk to San Marco. You have the luxury to walk to all the tourist spots but come away to your little haven in the evening. Rooms are very clean and... More

If you're looking for clean, simple accommodation without the frills, away (but not too far) from the tat stalls and tourist mayhem then Patronato Salesiano Leone XIII may just be the right place for you. We stayed two nights sat/sun in October and paid 100 euro per night (50 pp) in twin beds. It was a little school camp but... More

We confirm other reviewers' comments: this establishment provides functional, very clean accommodation for people who don't mind things being "ordinary". Our room was light with ample storage, air conditioning and a decent sized bathroom. The buffet breakfast was very acceptable.

When I booked this place, I was afraid that it might be too far from the attractions of the city. As it turned out, it was just far enough to be peaceful and just near enough to be easily walkable. It got us away from the crowds and in a peaceful neighborhood with several good restaurants. The room was comfortable,... 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Placed in the Sestiere of Castello in the extreme part of Venice, in the proximities of the Biennale exhibition, the B&B is out of the tourist mass area in quiet position. Good point of departure to discover the greatest tourist attractions: St. Mark's Square is just 15 minutes away by feet, the stop of the vaporetto "Giardini / Biennale" (around 250 meters away) is served from three public lines. We offer simple and functional rooms with en suite bathroom all equipped with telephone, air conditioning, autonomous heating, wi fi connection and hair dryer. No curfew time for the night reentry. ... more   less
