On the positive the lovely lady on reception went out of her way to make our stay good. On the first night she recommended and booked a restaurant for us, and even walked us there on her way home. The food was excellent, we asked her on the following two night for more recommendations, and she booked us two more... More

Small friendly Palazzo that is in a great location for exploring Venice. It is ' somewhere' between Ospidale (Hospital) and San Marco which means a walk of around 10 minutes in either direction. You will get off the waterboat at Ospidale and its a fairly easy walk to the hotel - providing you know how to read a map! Breakfast... More

We landed from the US and it was our first time in Italy. We booked this hotel via hotel.com but couldn't imagine how great this place was. We received an email after my online reservation with directions on how to get to the hotel. The hotel is quite close from the Ospedale and Celestia station. We took the Vaporetto from... More

This place is excellent to explore Venice. It is situated in a quite neighborhood with everything on walking distance. If you do take a water taxi you can dock at the back entrance. There are great coffee shops and cafes in the vicinity and the staff is friendly. Would stay here again!

Booked a trip to Venice. Jade Hawkins of Travel Councillors put the whole thing together. Flight, water taxi transfer and this gem of a hotel. What a fantastic building. Our room was massive (upgrade as our agent had contacted the hotel to mention a special birthday) Staff were really helpful and we found it easy to navigate to all the... More

Stayed here for three nights and the service is very minimal, but very agreeable. The rooms are clean and overlook the canal. There is a simple but filling breakfast buffet included. The only thing that you should be aware of is that they will offer to give you a "free" water taxi ride to a Murano glass factory on a... More

This palazzo is simply beautiful. It has a magical, timeless air about it. You enter through a big green gate across cobbles. Our room was on the ground floor facing the garden and was clean, well maintained and extremely comfortable with complimentary toiletries and plenty of towels. It is quiet as there are only a few rooms and at times... More

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
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.
