Positive side - clean and cosy room near all main tourist facilities.
Negative side - one of the hotel employees tried to double-charge my parents for the breakfasts' costs. He had all the information about our check-in payments, but told my non-English speaking parents that...More

Despite informing staff that it was our honeymoon and additionally being prepared to pay extra money for a nice room we were placed in a shoe box. It was disappointing that hotel staff did not make any attempt to warn us about the room size...More

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.
I agree with Teresa, catch the water ferry. We took the Blue line to Fondamente Nuove, but it is probably a 20 - 30 minute walk, and we got thoroughly lost. Rialto bridge is a far better idea, as it's only a couple of... More
I agree with Teresa, catch the water ferry. We took the Blue line to Fondamente Nuove, but it is probably a 20 - 30 minute walk, and we got thoroughly lost. Rialto bridge is a far better idea, as it's only a couple of streets away. There is a small square with a pharmacy on the corner, next door to that is a coffee bar, and the green door is opposite. Make sure you get a decent map of Venice, DON'T use google maps as we did, the streets they tell you to follow don't even exist in real life! Once you get to San Lio Tourist House, there will be a card with a map to the check-in site, it's fairly easy to find. Enjoy Venice, and spend a day just getting lost, it's all part of the fun, you find some beautiful places completely by accident.
