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

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

Very impressed with this guesthouse. It's in a superb central location, only a short distance behind the Doge's Palace. Our double room was a good size, with a large en-suite bathroom. Very tastefully furnished and clean. The staff were very friendly. The choice of items in the breakfast buffet could have been slightly wider. However, we loved the place and... More

If you want a location close to St. Mark's Square and easy access to the water buses, this hotel fits that bill. We took a shared taxi to the San Zaccaria stop and its just a foot bridge away, which is about a 3-4 minute walk (with a ramp for luggage). The front desk staff was helpful and gave us... 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.
