Beautiful palazzo hosting the Valentine's Day Ball . We arrived late due to jet lag from driving from Milan and just arriving from NY. Dressed in full costume, dancing and drinking in this beautiful setting was a blast to start off our Carnevale adventure!

This is a beautiful hotel, staff are extremely professional and helpful. We came to Palazzo Contarini to celebrate New Year’s Eve and we had an amazing time. The venue is very charming, the food was just delicious, the wine perfect and the music was excellent! We are very grateful for this special time we had at Palazzo Contarini.

This is a stunning hotel and you gets acres of space in your apartment plus a jacuzzi bath although it only works intermittently. There is a kitchenette which is handy but there are lots of things you only discover when you arrive. First is that staff are not available to help with enquiries after 8pm. On our first night (a...

The entrance was breathtaking; when you go inside beyond the gate, you have a small courtyard that is very welcoming. The staff is accommodating and friendly. The room itself was very large, spacious and well equipped. I can't say this was the cleanest hotel I've stayed at, but it's an older building and so the musty smell is understandable. I...

Booked in with siblings, greeted by a very friendly member of staff with good local tips. We were told prior to arrival we would have to move hotels for the 3rd night (3 night total stay in Venice) due to construction work in the hotel. On the day we were asked to move (staff reiterated we had to move because...

Great renovated palazzo in a quiet area but easy walking distance to the main sites - we found a route down to the quayside near st marks which involved no bridges! Very important with a wheelchair user! Great variety of local shops, bakery, wine merchant, supermarket, basic clothes etc, as a residential area. Very helpful staff with good English Huge...

Loved this hotel. I did not expect the history or the grand features of the fabulous building. From the beginning we were treated very well by the hotel staff. When I first reserved our room we only expected to stay one night, and reserved a standard double but later we decided to add a day and without paying attention I...

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...

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...

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...

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.
