We accidentally found this hotel after being treated terribly at another property (see my review of Palazzo Vitturi) and decided to move. I guess it just proves that things DO happen for a reason! We loved staying here as it is a beautiful property. There...More
We have just returned from a great stay at the Palazzo Schiavoni. The hotel is very clean and great value as it is only a 5 minute walk from St Mark's Square. Our room was very spacious with a seperate sitting room and kitchen and...More
An excellent place to stay - hotel staff very friendly, the rooms spotless, a bit on the small side but that's par for the course in Venice.

The location is great...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.
