Dear Mr Minns,
Thank you so much for the message, we are happy when our guest are happy.
This is a great place to stay while visiting Venice. Everyone who works there is so accommodating. We arrived early and it wasn't a problem. By the time we were done checking out, our room was ready. The breakfast, especially the coffee, was delicious! The...More
The hotel is quite an interesting piece of history. Breakfast was good. Staff was helpful. The biggest and main issue is that the reception closes at 8 pm and to enter the hotel and the aisle of the room you need a code. Without the...More
The apartment was clean and beautifully refurbished. Staff were very welcoming helpful and friendly. Only five minute walk with heavy bags from Arsenale stop on the waterbus, 10 minutes walk from San Marco. It is situated next to a canal but is very quiet area...More
We recently spent 3 nights in Palazzo Schiavoni and loved it. We felt like locals or like we were staying in a bed and breakfast instead of a hotel. The room was decorated in the traditional Venetian style pictured. Some said it was hard to...More
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.
