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.

We stayed with my wife for one night, as we didn't find available room at our first hotel. We were lucky! Great location, just 2 minutes from city attractions but not directly with tons of Venetian tourists. We would recommend 100%!!! Small hotel with great rooms!

We spent 2 nights there. This is officially the smallest hotel room we've been to. We were put into the annex part of the hotel, which is behind the actual hotel. There was enough space for 1 bed, two walkways by the bed on each side and at the end of the bed, and a small coffee

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and thought it was excellent. On arrival we were a little early for check in but our room was ready which was great news! The room itself was spacious, well decorated and looking out onto the square in front of the hotel. Was nice that it had a

Best way is to take the water taxi from the train station to the San zaccaria stop and then it’s an easy one block walk from there

Hi, You cannot park in this city at all!!! There is NO road for cars but for boats and if you have a licence you can rent one. Alternatively you can take the ‚Vaporetto‘ which is a public transportation. Please kindly read basics about Venice. Otherwise you will be disappointed. Best wishes Manuels

I think you can ask at the reception and they will provide you one. Most rooms are small. Manuela

"If you book in the annex, it is quieter you are not close to the street"
"If you get a room over the restaurant it's loud at night, in the courtyard, loud in the morning."
"Annex has quiet rooms as they do not overlook the plaza and restaurants which are open late."
"very close to San Marco, easy to reach"
