I went to Venice with my boyfriend for the first time this past July. It was AWESOME. We made our reservations though TripMasters (I recommend them for big trips). The site set us up with a different hotel but I chose this one because of location and the reviews. It's decently priced for two 20-somethings. The owners are very nice... More

I had read the reviews and looked at the pictures before booking nit really knowing for sure what to expect. Having never visited Venice before, navigation was a little tricky at first but we soon found the hotel. The reception area is very small but the staff are all very helpful and friendly. We were a little early but our... More

We received a lovely warm welcome here - very friendly! We were given a map of Venice, and all the basic information you'd need on arrival. The rooms are fantastic, very Venetian, with (Murano?) glass light fittings, and the lovely fabric wallpaper you find in Venice! Given the age of the building, you can't expect lifts or other modern features... More

I rate it 4 because of the nice staff, cleanliness and also the convenience of being close to most of the attractions. It's just 2 minutes walking to St. Mark's square. You shouldn't expect a high quality and brand new hotel with big breakfast but we had a comfortable stay.

We recently spent five nights at the Hotel al Leon a/k/a Locanda al Leon in room 30. The room was spacious enough for the two of us to move around without getting in each other’s way, even with suitcases on the floor. The room and bathroom were very clean. The air conditioning worked great. Room lighting was good, with multiple... More

Very old and outdated hotel no elevator, carpet outwear in scalers, clean room nice maid services very gentle and helpful. Hotel is very close to Piazza San Marcos and very well located in general but it will be nice to have improvements. At least if at night you need a cup of hot water for a tea you may be... More

The estate was built around 1480-1490 and is therefore about 500 years old. If you exit the building and turn left after only 10 meters there is a portico which leads to a small Court private...

This boutique hotel was just fabulous! I was pleasantly surprised because it was near everything! The owners and staff were more than willing to help and you can get breakfast in your room. The quarters were tight but appropriate for the location and age of the hotel.

We did a 8 day tour from Rome, Florence and then Venice. By far this hotel was the best! Amazing location, right next to the boat stations. Right next to the big tourist areas. The rooms were extremely clean. Amazing size for the bathrooms compared to all the rest we were in. And the air conditioning is the #1 part!... 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.
