Can't complain too much about this hotel but at the same time, wouldn't return. Just a 10 minute walk from Rialto Bridge the hotel sits on the charming Campo Santa Maria Formosa and is within easy walking distance to much of Venice including Piazza San Marco. Arriving from Marco Polo the most time and cost effective option is the water... More

Lovely little hotel based in a little market square which was a hive of activity during the day you can sit outside the hotel enjoying a beer or coffee and watch the wonderful locals go about their business. Room was spacious and clean, good continental breakfast each morning and very friendly helpful front of house staff. Our room was at... More

Nice helpful staff, quaint Venetian building and fairly decent breakfast. The location is on a pretty square about 10-15 min walk from St Marks Sq. We are sure we read somewhere when we booked that it was only a few minutes from Rialto waterbus stop on the Grand Canal. This isn't correct. It's a good 15 minute walk from there... More

Booked this hotel for my daughters 30th birthday surprise, picked it because of where it was situated and also because of it's classic Venetian decor. Staff are really friendly and helpful, taking time to talk about places to visit and helping you navigate to them. Our room was lovely, very clean, and spacious, furniture was in keeping with the overall... More

Very clean and quiet hotel in a lovely courtyard close to the Rialto Bridge and San Marco Piazza. Very nice staff and great croissants made on premises for breakfast. The negatives - no elevator, inadequate WiFi for # of guests in the hotel, dated furnishings, moderately ok air-conditioning, and room safe is too small for a tablet.

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in Venice and were not disappointed. It is situated in a quiet location minutes away from St Marks Square and the Rialto bridge. The staff were really friendly and the lovely female receptionist so helpful and patient when we asked for advice. Also excellent buffet breakfast and delightful rooms. Would definitely... More

We booked Hotel Scandinavia for our city break and first ever visit to Venice and liked it a lot. It is very well located for a short walk to the Grand Canal - about the same distance from Rialto and St. Marks. It is set in a nice square with a few bars and restaurants. Reception were friendly and helpful.... More

The location of the hotel was fantastic. 5 minute walk to both St Mark's Square and the Rialto bridge. The hotel was very clean and served a lovely breakfast of fresh pastries among other things. The staff were very friendly and gave lots of useful information about where to go and recommended some fantastic restaurants. The room was quite small,... 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.
