Google best hotels in Venice and the Metropole always appears, so our expectations were high and this hotel did not disappoint. From the private landing jetty for the water taxi though to the beautiful room and the friendliness of the staff this hotel provided a...More
We recently stayed at the Metropole for 2 days to do some sightseeing in Venice prior to taking a cruise. The hotel is very easy to get to from the airport by walking to the airport dock and taking a water taxi direct – they...More
The hotel is situated in a perfect area, close to St Marks Square, but also close to the less expensive restaurants/bars etc if you walk the other way. The service is fantastic and the receptionists etc cannot do enough for you. We stayed in one...More
Having stayed at various hotels in Venice and at the Danieli most recently, upon recommendations of friends, we decided to try this hotel. We were still close to San Marco, had a quiet room on a side canal with a slice of a view south...More

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.

I wouldn't book a tour of either. Just go there on your own initiative then you can spend as little or as long as you like at either place. Everyone speaks English so it would be no different to you going to downtown... More
I wouldn't book a tour of either. Just go there on your own initiative then you can spend as little or as long as you like at either place. Everyone speaks English so it would be no different to you going to downtown Manhattan! Everything is so easy to find. Even if you don't have a map, it's all on your smart phone.

Outside the train station you will see the canal. The only way to get to the hotel is by boat (only transport in Venice). There are 2 types of boat - private hire (cost under negotiation of €60-70), or the public boat (like a bus) which will cost approx €10 but takes a long time. The public boat is on the left as you come out of the station.
The public boat itself stops outside the hotel, and you can take this to the airport (it takes about 1 hour) but make sure you are on the correct boat
