Convenient to St. Mark's Basillica & The Palace, Metropole was a wonderful place to stay in Venice. Each room is uniquely decorated with beautiful antiques with updated modern bathroms. Lower rooms have noise from lagoon but I found it uniquely Venice. The garden patio dining...More
The staff here were superb! Location is good on the grand canal not far from the bridge of sighs and St. Mark's square. If you want Lagoon view ask for a high room to avoid the crowd noises below. Garden buffet breakfAst was superb and...More
My husband and I spent four nights here for the first leg of our honeymoon. The hotel is truly beautiful, and the rooms are large and elegant. My only complaint is the service, which was often indifferent and aloof. The concierge staff was incredible, but...More
As someone who has lived in Venice I had always been in awe of the metropole with it's gold sign and magical smell. At Christmas this year we were lucky enough to stay here over Christmas and New Year. It was even better than I...More
We stayed here for our silver wedding. Loved it, loved it, loved it. Very good service. Wonderful drinks in bar. Free taxi to Murano directly from hotel. Air-con very useful when temperature is 33 degrees. Free wi-fi.

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
