I wanted somewhere close to the Venice Lagoon, so I chose Villa Igea Venice based on the reviews on Trip Advisor – and I was not disappointed.
This boutique hotel ticked all of the boxes for me:-
Sleep Quality: 5
Nice hotel just 5 minutes from San Marco square. Very friendly and helpful staff. The room was immaculate and the bathroom was roomy, shower tall enough for a tall guy. The mattress was uncomfortably hard but the room had a lovely balcony. There was a...More
This hotel is part of Savoia & Jolanda, where you get a really great breakfast buffet. Igea is located about a block off of the Grand Canal. All the rooms are excellent. Staff is great. Location perfect … only a couple of minutes to walk...More
We recently spent 3 days at the Villa Igea. Room was clean and comfortable bed was excellent . Maybe a little on the small side. Hotel itself is part of the larger Savoia and Jolanda group but the hotel is opposite the church.
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 have always flown into Venice and taken a private taxi for just the two of us. Cost around 100 Euros which I felt was well worth it. You get the boat to yourselves and get directly to your accommodation, whereas if you share with others you may be the last to be dropped off. Great ride !
