We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel, and to be honest when you get off the water bus all the hotels look fantastic, then you realise your hotel is down an alley!!! But when you get to it it looks great, very quaint and very well decorated. The staff at this hotel were very friendley. Breakfast was a croissant...

Ok so this hotel was just ok but it had a great location. Breakfast, which was included, was terrible - you get cereal and lousy coffee- but enough about that, just have breakfast at one of the dozens of little cafe's in the area and you're set. It definitely could have been cleaner - they did change the sheets and...

I'm fairly easy to please but this place just seemed to irritate me. This was my first time to Venice so take this review as you see it. I haven't visited any other hotels in this city so maybe some of the things I mention are the norm. I am comparing to other European hotels we stayed at during our...

We read reviews and booked a two night stay in a Quad room-only in annex- on the day of travel to Venice. The location was out of the way but not too hard to find. We knew that we were in the annex but up only one flight of stairs. It was HOT in July but the AC did OK...

Like many others, we were very unhappy with our stay at the Lux. We also ended up in the "annex" in a tiny room barely big enough to hold our beds. When I complained, I was told it was OUR FAULT because we had not requested the "main" hotel. I asked for a reduction in price, but was refused. So,...

We were impressed with the Hotel Lux. We had seen some poor reviews beforehand but were delighted with our experience. Our party of two couples booked early through Citalia and were given first-floor rooms just as requested. We had our luggage carried up for us, enjoyed the breakfasts in the small (and beautifully panelled) breakfast room, were met with courtesy...

Venice is expensive. Period. There is a lot of mediocrity out there...if you want to enjoy yourself, I wouldn't recommend this place. Here is my beef: The hotel has an annex around the corner (2-star) but gets away with renting rooms at 3-star prices. I didn't stay in the main space, and maybe it is OK. I stayed at the...

The room was in another building down the street from the hotel. We had to carry our luggage up several stairs with no help. The room was nothing fancy. We were glad it was for only 1 night. The only positive things about the hotel is that they let us store our luggage for several hours while we explored Venice...

OK I know that you have to pay an arm and a leg for a central hotel in Venice but if you do stay here and you have booked into the hotel make sure they don't try and palm you off into another building over the street. We were shown to a dodgy little room up four flights of stairs...

Stayed at the Lux hotel in early September 2008. It has a fantastic location but that is all that is going for it. TIny rooms (I guess it is the same with all venice hotels), tiny breakfast rooms, avg breakfast, safe (which is not working),. No bell Boy. Lugging luggage is really a pain on those narrow steps.

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.

“Try to get a room on the second floor as that is actually the 3rd floor. Everything else is even higher and more stairs to climb.”
