Location: Excellent central location. Next to St. Marks. Near a vaporetta stop.
Rooms: They are quiet and comfortable. The air conditioner worked great. The rooms are spacious (for a hotel centrally located in the city). It's an old historic building with no elevator.
I booked this hotel with booking.com in June, for 1 night, in November 14. After I got writing confirmation of my booking, I booked also another hotel in Rome, and the flight round trip from Spain, with same credit card, a platinum visa card.

This hotel is in the perfect location for sight seeing in Venice. Check in was easy and efficient, our room was spacious, the air conditioning worked perfectly and the shower was great. The staff were very friendly and he breakfast was simple but tasty.
Have nothing negative to say about this hotel. The Italian guy on the desk was so friendly and always happy to help. The location was amazing, couldn't be more central, a minutes walk from main square. Hotel was clean and quirky and worth every penny....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.
