Stayed in this hotel for a weekend and all I can say is good things. Very comfortable and cosy, nice staff, secure, cleaned. Very central too.
I don't know about other hotels in Venice, but this one offer rooms like you were in a palace....More
Stayed for 1 night for our wedding anniversary. The location is very convenient. Most places are no more than 10 minutes walk.We caught the water bus from the airport to the Rialto Bridge stop and walked from there. Tip - print the walking instructions from...More
The hotel was difficult to find. Staff unwelcoming. Asked for an iron was told could only use the (not cheap) laundry service. No lift. Small issue for those without disability but after hours of walking it was a thought to climb the very steep stairs....More
As difficult as Venice is to navigate this hotel is even more. The rooms don't make sense and there are no signs directing anyone. Some rooms had windows Oy facing walls of the next building. The front desk staff caused everyone in my party (we...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.

The vaporetta run a N ( night) service. You can find details online. You get off at the Rialto bridge. The hotel is a 10 minute stroll from there ( you do have to lug your suitcases up and down a few bridges over the canals!) we did it and it's not difficult. The Vaporetta are enormously cheaper than a water taxi. Depends on your budget I guess. Hope this helps.

We had to take a water taxi, it is about 110 euro per person with luggage, we also got a porter to take our bags from the taxi stop and the porter cost us 25 euro, they are good to use as they know the area very well. Venice is like a maze and you can get a bit "lost" if you don't know where you going. We stayed in the main hotel and it really was a great room. If they booked you in one of the annexes ask them to move you to the main hotel (they do charge extra), unless you have been booked into the main hotel. We had room 402 and it was very big.
