Just spent three nights in this hotel. Like others we were shepherded to another building where I got to drag luggage for three people on a three week trip up 5 flights of narrow stairs. The room was small and dingy but that didn't much...More
We just got back from Italy, Venice and Verona, a couple a days ago. In Venice we stayed at this "hotel" called "LUX" (?!?) why I can't imagine because from the beginning of our arrival we were asked to live the primary building with...More
We stayed at the hotel Lux for three nights as part of an Italian mini-holiday and we weren't disappointed. We had visited Venice before on a day trip and we realised that we wouldn't be staying in a large modern hotel (they don't do that...More
Just a hop skip and and a jump from St Mark's Square and a two minute walk from the vaporetto stop (San Zaccaria) tucked in an alley but there is a sign half way up the main thoroughfare opposite the stop. Reception staff were friendly...More
Just walking distance from San Marco, room was nice & clean at a very affordable price. Definitely recommended. Only to be avoided if you are physically unfit or have special needs: series of steep staircases with no lift ( a common theme in venice though)....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.

We walked to the closest boat dock, took the boat to the airport (NOT a water taxi, but the regularly-running boat to the airport with multiple stops - water taxi is hugely expensive unless you split the cost with others). Suggest purchasing ticket the day before. Allow about up to 90 minutes for the trip, depending on what stop you board the boat. When you get to airport dock, there is about a 10-minute walk to the airport terminal. This was the best method for the pricing. Heard bad things about the bus.
