They think they are really something but they are not. The rooms are very small but that's typical of Europe. It's just expensive for what you get. Right behind the hotel is a best western. It is a Three star. Save yourself some money and...More

Hot! Hot! Hot! Our room's AC was on the fritz so we ended up leaving a day early. The hotel itself is lovely and I imagine it's difficult to cool an old building in sweltering summer heat but for the price it sure would have...More
Our two night stay at the Metropole were our last two in Italy before returning to the States. The location was perfect, with the water-taxi arrival to the hotel lobby a real treat for all of us. The breakfast, which is included in the room...More
My family of 4 had a wonderful stay here for two nights. Quiet room and comfortable with plenty of space. Clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Very nice breakfast in a secluded courtyard. It is right on the water, just far enough away from St. Mark's...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

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
