Our stay in Venice was made even better by the people at Palazzo Schiavoni. We have stayed at many other hotels, some much more expensive but the genuine warmth, helpfulness and unobtrusive service at Palazzo Schiavoni are exactly what we have always looked for in...More
Arrived after a long boat ride to be greeted by Nicola with "Welcome to Venice" a friendly, hospitable host who provided the upmost professional service and guideance throughout our stay. Our accommodation was spotless, beautifully decorated and furnished facing the canal. Waking each morning to...More
This place has it all. Great service, beautiful rooms, and the staff is the best ever! Clean, very nice. The location is just off the main tourist section but off enough to be tranquil. We took the opportunity to go from the hotel to a...More
Stay here for 2 nights during the first week in June. Our room seemed to be in the attic. The elevator did not go all the way up to our floor and we had to lug our baggage down a flight of stairs as no...More

Thank you for reviewing our property! I am sorry you did not like your room on top floor, and we would been very happy to give you another alternative. Actually despite the size, that is one of the most requested room, our clients...More
Picked this hotel because it has an elevator. It was out of order the day we arrived and they accommodated us by putting us in the (much larger) ground floor room. We could hear passersby talking, but that was great! The musical murmur of the...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.
