We stayed at this hotel in early September for two nights and really enjoyed it. You can't beat the location- it's very close to Piazza San Marco but it's quiet and away from the crowds. Our room was on the top floor- fairly small room but we didn't mind. The room was very clean, had nice furnishings and best of...

We enjoyed our stay Locanda Al Leon. Probably one of the best locations in Venice, a short walk to Piazza San Marco and even closer to the Vaporetto stop – which helps with transportation to the airport and train stations and the outer islands. This bed and breakfast was decorated in a Venetian style – cloth wall coverings, chandeliers, and...

To see what we thought about the hotel itself - read the last two paragraphs. On the morning we were supposed to check in, my sister called and told me my mom died that morning. We were in the train station in Florence waiting to board the train to Venice. My sister and brother-in-law and their two kids were supposed...

Having found this place on TripAdvisor we booked 4 nights there in January. As it was low season we got a great rate and couldn't believe our luck when we discovered that the hotel was a 2 minute walk from St. Marks Square. You can't get more central. The room was tiny, but you don't go to Venice to sit...

Been at Al Leon and enjoyed an outstanding experience. The room I stayed in, 21, was large stylish well decorated, spacy, facing the street, but not noisy. Strategically located near S. Zaccheria, this charming hotel is very central, just a few minutes away from the major points as S. Marco or Rialto, just to quote. It’s also very near from...

This review is really about the annex to the Locanda al Leon, called Casa Cavanella. For the Cavanella you check in at the Locanda al Leon reception, which is easy to find from either the San Zaccaria or San Marco boat stop. The gentleman at the front desk of the Locanda al Leon was very pleasant and helpful. He led...

Have just returned from a four night stay at this wonderful small hotel. The location is sensational - down a small laneway just off San Marco Square. Three minutes easy walk from water taxis, water buses, and the Grand Canal. Use the map from the hotel website as this provides perfect instructions on how to find it - beware, it...

Although our room was not available when we arrived late at night due to the previous occupants extending their stay - we were shown to the annex, which was fine. When we did move to our room, we were upgraded and given a discount. Location of hotel is perfect. Recommendations were helpful and close by. Staff were friendly and the...

We have just returned from a four night stay in this pleasant little hotel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Perfectly positioned just behind San Marco it is a three minute walk to San Zaccharia, the hub of the vaporetto network, making trips to and from the airport as well as exploring Venice really easy.

I wanted to go to Venice for a romantic getaway, so I needed a place to stay, but didn't really have 200 or more Euros to spend on a room for ONE night. I checked out a lot of hotel offers online and at the end decided on Locanda AL LEON, which had one of the chippest offers for double...

Staying in Castello

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.
