We stayed here for 2 nights and the room itself was clean and the hotel was very hard to find as there isn't any signage to get to the hotel and if it's your first time in Venice, you definitely need a map of Venice...More
We paid a good price for this hotel and it is a good hotel, after getting lost in the little streets when you arrive (everyone does, take a map), we found it and were plesantly surprised, clean, friendly but we were put into room 501...More
Everyone gets lost in Venice. So did we. We thought after getting of the Vapouretto, we could find our way. We ended up carrying our luggage up and down bridges, going around in circles. DO PRINT OUT A DETAILED MAP BEFORE YOU TRAVELLED. GPS DOESN'T...More
Only challenge is dragging cases through the myriad of streets and over steps....especially when travelling with two mid 70 year olds.
But find it we did and what a brilliant place. Stayed out of the main hotel and the annexe was very quiet and comfortable....More
We didn't know what to expect going to a city with so many independant hotels, but were pleasantly happy with our decision to go to Santa Marina. Not very far from San Marco square or Rialto bridge (around 10 mins walk). The rooms were extremely...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... More
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.
