We spent four nights at this hotel in a junior suite. Fabulous room overlooking the canal. Excellent location for great restaurants and near the Rialto Vaporetto stop. Staff welcoming and helpful. Everything you could wish for at breakfast. Housekeeping excellent. Would definitely staf here again.

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of an 8 night stay in Venice. We arrived late on Sunday evening and were checked into room 110.

This is a grea hotel with every comfort you could ask for and the bonus is its superb location just a 2 min walk from Rialto bridge.

We stayed here for 4 nights over the Easter weekend and, although this hotel is very expensive, it's in an amazing location which does help to justify the price. You're less than 5 minutes from Rialto Bridge and less than 10 from St. Marks Square. The hotel is set in a small square so it's quite quiet and it has... More

Overrated and overpriced. Indifferent service. One day the room was not made up when we returned at 3 pm. Other times multiple requests needed for basic service, such as an iron and ironing board, or a drink in the garden. We travel a lot and usually pick high end hotels. This is the first supposedly high end hotel that we... 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.
