There is no elevator so it would be difficult for people with a lot of luggage. The rooms in the back open to a valley with mechanical units so essentially there is no light coming through the window. We stayed for one night and it was okay for that, but I would not recommend for a long stay. The included... More

Sleeping in a 700 year old hotel gets you in the spirit of Venice. Get ready to use stairs, but luckily you don't need to lug your baggage up them as porters look after this for you. Centrally located between Piazza San Marco, Ponte Rialto and everywhere else, this was a wonderful location to immerse yourself in Venice and enjoy... More

This hotel is most conveniently located, close to St. Mark's and Rialto, and situated in a quiet square. First, it is an old hotel and old furnishings but everything is extremely clean. Secondly, there is no lifts/elevator, but porter to help with bags. The front desk was very polite, accommodating and friendly. The breakfast was not fancy, but again more... More

Great place to stay for a few days or a week. Close to major places. Download an app to navigate through the zig zag streets of Venice to reach the hotel. Stefano was our concierge and extremely helpful from the get go. No lift (elevator) but a great workout! Breakfast was included, top snacks, appetizers and great beverages. Room was... More

The hotel is conveniently located in the main Square and not too far away from the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's square. We stayed here for three nights and it served it purposed, considering everything in Venice is quite pricey. For what we paid for the room, it served its purpose. Our Wifi connection was non-existent in our room, therefore... More

This hotel is conveniently located in the centre of the city, close to both St. Mark's, and the Rialto bridge. The hotel is situated in the campo Santa Maria Formosa, a square located near the Santa Maria Formosa church. There is a restaurant, gelato stand, vegetable stand and a cafe right near the restaurant. The hotel is old, but well... More

It's below 2 star category. Stayed for 3 nights and it was a terrible experience. Staff at night duty was extremely rude and unprofessional. He refused to accept the confirmed booking for 3 guests. I had to call booking.com for intervention while I was in Amsterdam on vacations with limited access to phone.m but it didn't work as hotel guy... 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.
