An owner has contacted me in advance and provided a detailed instruction how to get their B&B. At first i have laughed but then recognized it was really helpful and there is a reason why. B&B is located next to a crowded route although in...More
Our stay at Residenza de l'Osmarin was perfect. The two bedroom apartment was quite spacious for two adults and 2 teenagers. It included a living room/kitchen which overlooked a beautiful canal. You could see the gondoliers glide by from the living room window. Romantic! One...More
We have travelled extensively and stayed in many places in Venice in the past, but this place truly exceeded our expectations and Maria Elisabetta was the most amazing hostess that I have ever encountered anywhere on my adventures!

We stayed at the Valentine suite which has a terrace at the topmost floor, the breakfast we had was delicious and fresh with a lovely variety of cookies , cakes and great coffee; we drank more than one cup. Lilli's Cappucino is great.
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.

We (husband/wife/1 teenager) were on the 2nd floor (one above the breakfast room) and had what seemed like an apartment to ourselves -- two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchenette/dining/lounge room. We heard a little bit of foot noise from the apartment above one night, but generally it was extremely quiet. Being the middle of winter, there was no street noise whatsoever. Check with the owners about your concerns, but there should be plenty of room for the kids with little impact on other guests. We travelled from the international airport via the alilaguna. It was about a 200m walk to the residenza with our (rather large) wheeled cases and we managed just fine. There is a review on here somewhere with excellent directions, worth looking for. You can't go wrong staying here!
