Right in the middle of all the Venice sights, the Istituto San Giuseppe is an oasis in the midst of all the excitement. Located in a centuries old convent that today serves as a school, guest house and home for the nuns who serve there, the Istutio offers a very quiet place to stay less than 1,000 feet from St....

The location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. We felt safe and secure and were comfortable leaving our belongings in the room. The people at the front desk were extremely helpful. We had a three night stay and I would definitely plan to stay there the next time we visit Venice - perfect location once you figure out... More

I enjoyed my stay here for four nights. It's all you expect from a convent/monastery stay: clean, quiet and safe. I slept very well. Don't expect North American hotel amenities at these prices. (i.e. Bring your own shampoo and blow dryer.) There are plenty of places to eat nearby, including a greengrocer and a grocery store, as well as numerous... More

We stayed here for three nights from 24th April. Istituto Giuseppe is centrally located between Rialto Bridge and San Marco. It was hard to find initially. We took the boat no 2 but because it was raining we had problems finding it. But once there, we were able to get our bearings right. The rooms were very clean. The Sisters... More

2 min walk to Saint Mark's Square (if you don't get lost)!! Sisters were lovely and welcoming. Our room was much larger than expected and a large ensuite too. Mattresses were very comfy. Unfortunately there were many mosquitos in the room (had to sleep under the sheets) however by the second night there was only one and I got a... More

I stayed for 9 days when I had only planned for 7 nights. The room was simply furnished but super clean. It was very central and although they did not serve breakfast there were many cafes and bakeries close by. There was kitchen facilities that you could also store and heat food. The staff were absolutely lovely and very friendly.... More

The guest room was predictably austere. Two twin beds with a larger bathroom than other convents we stayed in, yet still a small shower. The radiator for heat was centrally controlled and ran for set times during the day. This made for a chilly room in late December when overnight lows were near freezing. We used the additional blankets provided... More

A simple but perfect location for any trip to Venice. The staff were very helpful. Location was perfect. I spent two nights and would go again. It is not a luxury hotel, but good, clean, simple accomodation for time in Venice. If you want pampered American style hotel space this place is not for you. If you are there to... More

My wife and two children stayed at the Instituto San Giuseppe in Venice, Italy in late summer of 2014. It is challenging to find affordable, comfortable lodging for a family, so when I noticed the working monastery's availability and price, I booked it. It was an excellent move. This is a wonderful, simple and quiet, clean monastery run by super... More

This was our second visit to Venice this summer and we wanted to experience what it might be like to stay with a religious order in Venice. We resided here on the nights of 26th and 27th August 2015. We were not disappointed as Instituto San Giuseppe is centrally located between Rialto and St Marks Square in the Castello Sector... 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.
