This hotel is small but perfectly situated for anyone wanting to be close to main attraction but far enough away to enjoy the stunning views of Venice. The hotel is situated on the waterfront & we had the included continental breakfast outside every morning. The rooms are perfect & clean with air con (mandatory in July & Aug). The staff... More

This a small hotel. The staff at the front desk are friendly and helpful. The hotel is a short walk over two bridges to the Arsenale vaporetto and airport boat station - very handy. My room was very small and old-fashioned in terms of decor (needs an update). It had a double bed in it, but if I'd been with... More

Our Junior suite room had splendid view of Canale di San Marco. Air-condition and Wi-Fi worked really well. A comfortable, quiet and easy to find hotel for 3 nights. Central Castello location and within walking distance of several Venice attractions including San Marco.

The pictures really don't do this place justice, it's location is perfect and it's on a great little strip with bars and restaurants. It really is a hidden jem, the room was fantastic. Staff very helpful and friendly Local COOP, just around the corner, 1L bottles of water 0.25euros, "don't pay thee" 2-4euros some vendors are charging. Breakfast average, but... More

We flew to Venice after our marriage to begin a 'tour' of Italy. We took a private water taxi over to Venice from the airport on the mainland and it took us right to the back door of this hotel which was great. We were warmly welcomed and our was ver clean and pleasantly decorated. We were delighted to find... More

Our first time in Venice, we booked accommodation and location through a specialist, the hotel is not far from Piazza San Marco (10-15 minutes depending on how many tourists there are about) and away from the general hurley burley. Great views out front across the channel and an easy walk to the centre, we had an en-suite room with rearwards... More

Stayed here recently on recommendation of colleagues. Out of the tourist crush but close enough. Ferry stop 150metres (Arsenale). Via Garibaldi outside has a selection of bars and restaurants. Great views across to 'the Venice'. Quiet location. Staff could not be more helpful-relaxed and full of information, cannot help you enough. Buffet breakfast great-extensive choices and plenty of it. Rooms... More

This hotel's main plus point is its location as it's about 5 minutes walk from Arsenale water bus stop and about 10 minutes from Piazza San Marco. The breakfast was ok tea / coffee/ juice, a selection of rolls, ham, cheese, cereals, cake. with a couple of tables out the front where you could have breakfast and watch the world... More

This little hotel is in a great location, right on the ocean and a 15 minute walk to St. Marks Square and very close to a water bus station.

We stayed for 3 nights & loved the location which is perfect for visiting Venice & for getting the boat from the Airport. The staff are all friendly & obliging with the only complaint I would have would be the hard mattress although after living in Greece for 15 years this is something we are familiar with. In a city...

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.
