Excelent place to stay in Venice. Rooms are lovely, clean and the staff is great and helpful. Breakfast yumm. Location - could not be better. It takes about 5 minutes by foot to San Marco and Ponte Rialto, and at the same time it's very quiet. Grazie e arrivederci :))

We stayed in the hotel for six nights. Getting up the stairs was an effort, but it was good exercise. Our room was clean and shabby chic. The furniture in the room was old but it had a certain charm. The room was big but there was no view. The rooms and bathroom were spotless and the friendliness of the... More

The architecture is amazing like any other part of Venice however the rooms are awful. If climbing a million stairs with your suitcases turns you off then certainly don't stay here. Getting to the place is also quite annoying as its a few rides on transport then a long walk down a dark dingy lane. Venice island is basically going... More

Simply ignore the scaring comments of other too sensitive tourists and just enjoy the old but charming, and at the end funny, Venetian flavour of this hotel, next to a nice wide square in town which is Campo Santa Maria Formosa, with the church of the same name. Very good value for 1 night at just a few minutes walk... More

The worst hotel, in the most inaccessible location, with no staff at reception. The hotel rooms are on the highest floor of the building that is impossible to get to while carrying your luggage.The room was dirty and the bathroom smelled the same as a pig sty. I would not advise this hotel to anyone, not even who travels on... More

Arrived at property to be told they had cancelled booking, which they actually did after we had arrived. Pay up front or you could be disappointed. Manager wouldn't even come and speak to us personally only on the phone.

We had a very large triple room with ensuite, TV and air con. We were very comfortable for our five nights. Breakfast was a cold buffet with enough choice of cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, cheese, ham, boiled eggs and condiments.the staff were really helpful. The only downside was that the Internet was not working so we had to go around... More

Venice is one of the most expensive places ive ever stayed. Considering the price in comparison to other hotels, its not too bad. Firstly, it was not that easy to find despite having studied the map. There's a green door with a tiny sign down a random alleyway a 5-10 min walk from the water bus. We stayed on the... 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.
