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.

Clean, perfectly located, just off one of the best and least crowded squares, within 5-10 minutes walk of the grand Canal. The shared bathroom was never a problem despite the humidity and need for frequent showers! Breakfasts were typically Italian with amazing croissants and

It is a bit difficult to find, so we used google maps. We were able to leave our bags in the rooms before check-in time (the room was available for use after 13.00). The lady working there is nice, but she does not speak very well English. The room and the bathroom was a good

This hotel is located a short walk from St Mark's Square, in a fabulous location. We had a great time here. The only thing that stopped it from being excellent was the stairs to climb at the end of each long day exploring. If you have any mobility issues, this hotel is not for

"As all rooms are on an elevation and lift use is restricted the hotel is not recommended for the elderly"
"The lamps need some fresh bulbs and wiring. The inadequate lighting was the only negative."
"Our room was on the 3rd floor. Lift only went up to 2nd floor. Choose floors on lower levels if you have heavy luggage."
"Check if you room (without ensuite) opens directly on to the breakfast area. Could be a problem during breakfast time (7-10)."
"We stayed in room 402. It was ok but mattresses are uncomfortable and you have to share a bathroom."
$64 - $234 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
