My boyfriend and I have just returned from Inter railing for 2 weeks, and starting off in Venice, this hotel began the holiday very well! Locanda Silva is located a perfect 3-5 minute walk from Saint Mark's Square (depending on how fast you walk) and so easy to find from the water bus drop off point - with a map,...

Locanda Silva is fantastically located, eventhough somewhat hard to find initially. The rooms are basic but good beds and the room we had with a small bathroom with minuscule shower was ok. We did though have a group of Australian girls convene in the room next door just as we were having a rest before dinner for a very loud...

I stayed here for 3 weeks and it was really enjoyable. What made it particularly special was the people who worked there. They were invaluable for conversation, suggestions of places to go, and tips for your stay in Venice. The other pro is the location, right near San Marco or Salvatore who has an affordable, delicious fruit store in the...

It took a little effort to find Locanda Silva, but it does have a nice location on a quiet street. The room was very basic with no TV, but you aren't really in Italy to watch TV. The breakfast was also basic- bread, cereal, coffee. We found some good restaurants nearby and it's a short walk to the square. The...

No frills here, but clean, quiet and located on a tiny "canal" not far from San Marcos piazza. Nice staff. If you want basic accommodations saving your travel funds for other activities in very expensive Venice, book here. No lift. Rooms on 2nd level (3rd floor in the US) and above. Couldn't connect to wifi on iphone or droid.

A plesant hotel in a nice, quiet location yet only a shortish walk to San Marco and Rialto. A little hard to find initially, ask for directions before arrival.

Location is everything for this hotel. The room had no view other than the teenage boy in his bedroom across the street (2 metres); breakfast was not good but ok; staff friendly but not particularly helpful. Price was quite high considering amenities. No internet which is a real pain.

Venice was the first stop on our two week vacation in Italy. I must say Locanda Silva was a little disappointing. Firstly there was no lift and we stayed on the third floor. The reception staff was courteous but a bit more warmth would have been appreciated. The room was decent enough, though no TV. (We later realized that it...

this hotel was more a hostel than hotel with shared bathrooms and toilets. We had a room with a shower and toilet but it wasnt the cleanest. The cleaning staff were good and we did our washing here, having to hang it out between the buildings. Breakfast was good. Overall the place could do with a good clean.

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.
