We got to the hotel from the airport after spending 95 Euros on the water taxi. And the hotel had to look for our booking for 40min and then they told us that there was a problem with the booking and that they had over booked. Then tried to find some other hotels for us without accepting to pay for...

The Hotel Bucintoro has lived up to all the reviews that we have read. The hotel is ideally placed, close to the main attractions but just far enough away to be peaceful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Andrea was always on hand to offer his expert knowledge of Venice, giving us lots of ideas for places that locals...

This is my 3rd trip to Venice and for the first time I have felt like home rather than one in a million tourists. Since the beggining over the phone the amazing Andrea at the concierge convinced me that I had made a good choice. He was a "real Venician" very proud of his marvellous city and he told us...

. . . what more could you want? I fell in love with Venice many years ago yet returning each time I struggled to find a hotel which matched its style and magnificence. The last two trips (and all the future ones) I was fortunate to stay at Hotel Bucintoro. This is my idea of heaven. High speed taxi from...

We had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Bucintoro post cruise. We were apprehensive about our choice of location - only to find out it was the BEST spot in Venice - easy to get to. We took the Water Bus to Arsenale and only had to wheel our suitcase over one bridge/canal to arrive at the hotel. After...

I booked a one-night stay at the Bucintoro on the sole basis of the positive Tripadvisor reviews. What an excellent decision that turned out to be! The hotel is just a ways beyond the hustle and bustle of the St. Mark' square area as you re heading into the Arsenale area. The rooms were spotless and magnificently appointed with dark...

We stayed in the Bucintoro to celebrate my 40th birthday and I was extremely pleased with our choice. The hotel is in an excellent location just a short walk from San Marco. Our room was on the corner of the building and so we had views out over the lagoon and also along towards San Marco. The room was very...

Hotel Bucintoro was definitely my partner's and I favorite hotel during our trip to Italy for our birthdays. The interior was designed like a cruise ship with hard wood walls and marble in the bathroom, it was done in a very elegant finish, not cheesy at all. The attention was great, and I was impressed how the staff have traveled...

I chose this lovely hotel based on prior reviews and I completely blown away by the whole experience! Upon our late evening arrival, Andrea, the manager on duty, arranged for a friend of his to open his restaurant just for the two of us. That was the first display of generosity shown towards us amongst countless others. From the housekeepers...

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.
