Take the watertaxi to the private landing for the Aqua Palace to get the full Venice experience. The hotel is well appointed with generous sized rooms and bathrooms, and comfortable bedding. Breakfast was a modest buffet but covered the basic European/American staples. Hotel is in a good location, an easy walk to St. Mark's Sq and other sites but far...

Stayed in the Jr. Suite on the 4th floor with a canal view that was incredible! Aqua Palace's website and Trip Advisor reviews were spot on with this hotel and our ultimate decision in selecting. Everything was perfect from the concierge setting up a personal greeting at the train station upon arrival, to the private water taxi to the hotel,...

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights in this hotel and we enjoyed every moment of it. The Hotel is located centrally between the Rialto bridge and San Marco square. Both are within five minutes walking distance. Breakfast was included and offered everything we needed to start the day: Sausages, bacon, scrambled egg, toast with marmalade, fruit juices, fresh fruit...

The hotel is located half way between Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square. It is off the Main Street enough that it is not on the main tourist path that is always crowded. At night it is very quiet and right on a back canal. You can take a water taxi right from the airport and it will drop you...

Yet again another amazing stay here in the Aqua Palace. Even after a few years since we've last been, the hotel feels just as good. Extremely well located close enough to the action, but just on the quieter side of San Marco so you can enjoy walking away from crowds. The rooms are all extremely well appointed by any standard,...

The Aqua Palace is a perfect spot for a Venice trip situated in a prime location within minutes from the Rialto bridge and Saint Marks square. 4 star hotel is about right with a good breakfast offering and warm and friendly staff. Positives are the location, breakfast, price, a mini bar (see negative) Negatives are that it is not 5...

Great location, quietly set of the main streets near Rialto but very close to all amenities. The room was just the junior suite - it lacked a bit of lighting as very very dark and also coffee machine would have been nice but very clean and super comfortable bed. Fit for purpose for a 3 night stay in Venice! Very...

Nice hotel in walking distance to St Mark's Square. Gondola rides at the front door, great balcony with room to sit and eat, great service and clean rooms. Sylvia in the dining room was so friendly and welcoming- an asset to the hotel!

We picked the hotel after researching Venice in detail and reading reviews. I'm glad we did! The hotel is faultless, beautiful and the location couldn't be more perfect. The hotel is situated almost exactly halfway between St Marks Square and the Rialto Bridge, approximately 5 mins walk from both. We arrived early but our room was ready and even better...

We visited the aqua palace for our honeymoon. We had high hopes for the hotel and it was good, but not amazing. Some of our negatives may be positives for others, so I will try to be objective... The Positives... Amazing convenient location! So close to St Marks square and the Rialto bridge. A fantastic base to just meander around...

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.
