3 small alley walkways linking to this hotel. 3mins walk to Doge Palace and Saint Mark's Basilica. Hotel amenities are minimal but sufficient for personal use (coffee sachets, sugar, hotpot,etc). Quiet corner during the night, stay vigilant. Day time is bustling with activities during the Venice carnival. 5mins walk from San Zaccaria pier for the water taxi, private taxi and...

This hotel was a gem! The staff was great, room was spacious, clean and had a wonderful view to the small shops outside. The interior was modern, complimentary wifi. There is an excellent seafood restaurant next door, which has amazing food!

The hotel is a great location, rooms a bit in the small side but still very clean and great value for money. Only small negative is that there could be soundproofing from the corridor side as you can hear them start to prepare the rooms at 8am and may wake up late risers.

Lovely looking hotel in a great location, very friendly staff. However, the whole experience was ruined with myself and my partner waking up covered in bites!! Nasty!! Very disappointing and ruined our experience

The biggest advantage of this hotel - its location. Merely a few minutes from St. Mark's Square. Street unloaded and quiet around. * The room - spacious enough, there are several closets, TV, mini-bar, every day a few bottles of water. * Staff - always helpful, cooperative and pleasant. * Cons - poor sound isolation. We have heard how other...

My mother and boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights in Venice. The staff was very kind and friendly and very promptly replied to an email sent the day before arrival requesting information on how to get there with our luggage. There are no cars in Venice and the only transport is by vaporetto (water bus) or your own...

Staff was very helpful and friendly. We got a triple room which was enough. The room was new, looks renewed, and offered great location near Saint Mark's square (5 min walk!). Offers continental breakfast.

Had a lovely stay in this little hotel during our winter break in Venice. It is located just a few minutes walk from St Marks square, in a cute little square of it's own. It was clean, nicely decorated, and most importantly, warm! It was minus 2 degrees c on our first night, and a warm room was appreciated. All...

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
