It's expensive for what you get, but where in Venice is not? The online map and directions are perfect and I suspect that we would have had no difficulty finding it at 9.30 or 10pm (our arrival time), but so many Venice commentators warned of...More
Palazzo Schiavoni lived up to all the positive comments which have apperared in other write ups. If you want a clean, quiet & convenient base, not far from the main attractions & Vaporetti stops ,and you dont want to pay a fortune , then consider...More
We chose the Schiavoni after much research, and we were very pleased with our choice. The room was immaculate; the bed comfortable; ample closet space; a mini-bar refrigerator that we used for our own soft drinks and wine (although it barely kept our wine cool-ish,...More
Our first trip to Venice. Was guided by TA to this little gem and not disappointed. We'd heard and read tales of cramped small hotels in Venice at expensive prices, which is perhaps to be expected. This was not one of those hotels.
Our party of 6 including 3 children aged 8, 8 and 5 stayed in one of the hotel's two bedroom apartments with kitchen and sitting room. This family run hotel is charming and overlooks one of the canals. The apartment was clean and spacious and...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.
