A hotel in one of the traditional buildings in Venice, so be prepared to walk up lots of stairs if your room is on one of the upper floors as there is no lift, but no worries about carrying luggage, this was taken care of....More

This hotel is located kind of half way between realto and San Marco. So it is not far from the main points of interest. The staff were all lovely. Always saying hello and stuff and asking if we needed help.

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.

Sorry, forgot to mention that private water taxis can also be hired at the airport and leave from a landing stage within walking distance - although it is a bit of a walk, you can't get lost as there is pretty good signage... More
Sorry, forgot to mention that private water taxis can also be hired at the airport and leave from a landing stage within walking distance - although it is a bit of a walk, you can't get lost as there is pretty good signage. Try to book your water taxi before you go to ensure that one will be waiting for you - even less hassle when you arrive at Marco Polo. The journey across the lagoon into Venice and right to your hotel by private water taxi, in my opinion, is well worth the cost and a wonderful start to the holiday.
