I stayed in a twin room with my mother for the weekend. the hotel is pretty simple (more like a Bnb) but is very pretty and extremely Italian. I absolutely loved it. The area is good two with some good bars and restaurants nearby and a 30 second walk to the San Zaccaria front and 1.30 to St Marks. Breakfast... More

Ideally located in the middle of the San Marco district, 5 minutes walk to the Basilica, Campanile and the Doge's Palace. Restaurants all around. It's a family-run place and we had the good fortune to meet 'The Boss' grandmother, a most charming lady. Her grandson, Gabriele, welcomed us upon arrival and was most helpful in finding restaurants and things to... More

Smacked right in the heart of Venice and very cute. It was only two of us but we got a room with 3 beds which felt a little too big and not intimate. It was clean and comfortable enough for European standards. The complimentary breakfast was great. The only bad part is there was no wifi in the room or... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at Hotel Fontana. The staff was so warm and friendly. They made our stay very enjoyable. The location of the hotel is great. It is located just off of the quiet Campo San Zaccaria piazza. And you are a very short distance from Saint Mark's square. We had a wonderful time there.

A well located boutique hotel easily reached from the Vaporeto. A few minutes walk from most of the sights. Two minutes to St Marks and the Grand Canal, maybe 15 minutes to the Rialto Bridge. Well located for restaurants - ask at the desk for advice.Rooms are not large but more than adequate. They are spotless and well appointed. The... More

We stayed at Hotel Fontana in October 2015 and it was such a delightful experience! It is a family owned hotel and has been for many years. Cousins Diego and Gabriel made us feel welcome the minute we walked in the door. The room was comfortable and clean and had a nice local feel, not a cookie cutter chain hotel.... More

Hotel Fontana is a family owned and run hotel East of St. Mark's. Far enough off the vaporetto to be quiet and yet convenient. Our hotel felt very secure as it is small enough they knew who we were when we came back. Very helpful with restaurant recommendations, etc. Diego is the Manager, and a very friendly guy. One time...

We decided to stay there based on Rick Steve's and Trip Advisor recommendation. We were pleased that we did. The location is less than 5 minutes from the vaporetto and Saint Mark's Square. Along the way from the hotel to St. Mark's Square, you pass a number of restaurants and shops. The walk is safe, and lively with tourists. Our... More

Loved our stay at Hotel Fontana. It's location, so close to St Mark's Square, the vaporetto and the boat to/from the airport makes your time in Venice easy to navigate. You will be greeted warmly by Diego, ever ready to assist you. Having an elevator helps when checking in and out. You'll discover a clean, spacious, rather opulent room, comfortable... More

I have stayed at Venetian 4 star hotels in the past, but since discovering the family run Fontana over 20 years ago would never stay anywhere else. This lovely 3 star hotel will be a choice well made where Venice comes alive in its central location. Its enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable staff will make your stay quite unique.

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.
