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.

No, not all the rooms have a canal view. Ours was a triple room and didn't have a cute but did have a window overlooking the entrance. You can request a canal view and they should answer you but it depends on who is on duty... More
No, not all the rooms have a canal view. Ours was a triple room and didn't have a cute but did have a window overlooking the entrance. You can request a canal view and they should answer you but it depends on who is on duty. If it's the owner he is not particularly helpful but the other receptionists are nice so keep trying. Good luck.

From the Airport by bus to Piazza Roma, from there you can take the public ferry (Vaporetto), get off at Canal Grande stop, from there it's 5 min walking, the owner will send you a map very precise for reaching his place
