General. First, the weather was perfect, bright, sunny and not too cold, so my impressions were good from the start! Second it was relatively quiet (week before the main Carnevale), so access to every where was easy and quick. Location. About as far East as you can get, so a reasonable 30 min stroll into town down the Riva dei...

Hotel was in a quieter location of Venice, out away from busier areas but a pleasant walk and certainly in the greener part of the city. The reception staff were very good and I was very impressed with there language skills, always said hello even when just passing through the lobby, as well as letting us check in an hour...

Just returned from a 3 night stay with my partner. The hotel was lovely, really clean and tidy- staff was also very friendly and would help with any questions we had. Rooms are small but very cozy. Cleaned daily with fresh towels. Would definitely recommend and would like to return again. Thank you!

Stayed here on a three night break booked as part of a package deal. If you travel by public transport you will need to change at Lido for saint Elena (3 mins walk) or take the direct boat to Aresenale (about 15-20 mins) The hotel is located on a quiet part of the main group of islands on the far...

We booked this hotel through Secret Escapes and wasn't sure what to expect, having only read other mixed reviews. We took a private water taxi from the airport which dropped us off virtually at the door and we were not disappointed for the 4 days we stayed in Venice. The room was warm and clean, the bed was a bit...

We stayed from 30/12/16 - 4/01/17. Arrived around 8.30pm to a lovely welcome at reception, quick and easy check in and a voucher to use for a free drink each. We only booked a standard double and the room was very small but had everything we needed, the hotel could not unfortunately offer us an upgrade. As we were tired...

We were very impressed with this hotel. It is in a quieter part of Venice but easily accessible with the water bus stop a short distance away or for the more active St Mark's Square is about 25 minutes walk away. We hoped on and off the water bus all over Venice and this was great for us. The hotel...

Loved this hotel which was at the very end of the island. Quite and a bit isolated, which in my opinion is a good thing considering there are tourists everywhere in the heart of Venice. The hotel staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The breakfast was the best buffet I have ever experienced, with champagne and most anything you can...

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
