We had a great stay at this lovely and homely apartment. The staff member on the desk was very friendly and happy to recommend and organise restaurants and tours. The breakfast set out every morning was very nice and quite large. The location was ideally located in a quiet square between St Mark's Sq and the Rialto. The only slight...

Super-stylish, yet very livable. I would recommend this hotel for its attentive service and location. The private water taxi (booked by the hotel) from the train station was the most wonderful way to arrive, our children loved it so much we decided to forego the 'compulsory' gondola ride in Venice for a water taxi to the airport (equally thrilling). I...

My husband and I booked Charming House IQs for the end of our honeymoon. We paid £940 for four nights and had high expectations. We were picked up from the train station by a water taxi arranged by the hotel. This was a fab way to travel and we loved arriving at the hotel's private pier (although it was very...

I booked all four rooms for a surprise trip for my wife. Hotel was amazing and the concierge kindly played along to ensure that my wife was not aware that our friends were in the other rooms. They could not do enough to make our stay easy and comfortable and having the whole hotel to ourselves was rather unique. Great...

Now I realise that reviews of hotels are entirely subjective. One person's view is based on their own experience and comparison with other places they have stayed ...and this one is no different. But as someone who has stayed in some extremely expensive as well as very inexpensive hotels, the IQs Charming House is one of my favourite places. IQs...

This is a boutique hotel, with a boutique level of service. The staff are exceedingly friendly and personal, and were very keen to help whenever needed. They are not on site all day so if you're expecting a full-service hotel then consider booking elsewhere, but for what they do it is done well. On check in you select your breakfast...

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.

“If you're travelling as a couple, book one of the two rooms on the Santa Maria Formentera side. The biggest room is brighter and larger but the bedroom doesn't face the canals and is a little less romantic in feel.”
