We have stayed here regularly over the past few years. This traditional family-owned hotel has never failed to delight us. The decor is classy -- old-style exotic. The staff are exceptionally polite and attentive. The location is perfect. The cocktail bar and restaurant are both...More
We booked the Metropole to celebrate a special birthday and despite the torrential downpour which accompanied our arrival (and rather spoilt the transfer via the Grand Canal), from the moment we alighted at the private dock, this hotel was a delight. A lovely room, helpful...More
Metropole's magical atmosphere will definitely delight! I commend the owner -Ms. Gloria- for paying incredible attention to every detail hotel wide, from the fascinating decor to her choice of gracious and knowledgeable personnel staff. As soon as you step inside the lobby you know you're...More
Our daughters and their husbands treated all six of us plus a little one to a four day birthday trip to Venice. Metropole came recommended and it didn't disappoint. What a beautiful place,full of charm, wonderful Venetian decor, splendid antiquities on display in glass cabinets...More
I spent a wonderful weekend at The Metropole. Great location just a few minutes from San Marco.
The room was very well appointed and really comfortable. One or two drawbacks:
- there was no iron.
- the safe was too small for my laptop, and...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 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.

Don't know what RT means (it is advisable to avoid acronyms), but there is no road between the airport and Venice (which is on an island) and the hotel does help with transfer booking by water taxi, but it is not free (in fact quite expensive, around 100 €).

I wouldn't book a tour of either. Just go there on your own initiative then you can spend as little or as long as you like at either place. Everyone speaks English so it would be no different to you going to downtown... More

Everyone speaks English so it would be no different to you going to downtown Manhattan! Everything is so easy to find. Even if you don't have a map, it's all on your smart phone.

Outside the train station you will see the canal. The only way to get to the hotel is by boat (only transport in Venice). There are 2 types of boat - private hire (cost under negotiation of €60-70), or the public boat (like a bus) which will cost approx €10 but takes a long time. The public boat is on the left as you come out of the station.
The public boat itself stops outside the hotel, and you can take this to the airport (it takes about 1 hour) but make sure you are on the correct boat
