I read the trip advisor reviews after my travel agent booked it. I was terrified by what I read. I did book a standard room which looked better then the economy rooms. To my relief, we got the 'matilda' room which was quiet, clean and...More
The hotel was ok for oír needs. The room was ver y small but it had a small terrace. We didn't spend much time in the room so it didn't bother it was small.
It was rather difficult to find it. When we finally found...More
This was our first visit to Venice and we booked San Lio Tourist house mainly due to its location which is a minutes walk away from the Rialto Bridge. In hindsight this was a bad idea, because although we was on the doorstep of some...More
The carpeted walls of this colossal dump is surrounded by an enigmatic romantic city close to San Marco and the Rialto bridge. The room was dirty (the sheets were clean) and very dusty with the sloughed epithelial cells of every resident since the 1700's present....More
Let me way from the outset that I, like all of us, have my prejudices. One of mine is that I like to have a live, warm body respond to me when I arrive at a hotel property. I have been to many unmanned/undermanned hotels...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.
I agree with Teresa, catch the water ferry. We took the Blue line to Fondamente Nuove, but it is probably a 20 - 30 minute walk, and we got thoroughly lost. Rialto bridge is a far better idea, as it's only a couple of... More
I agree with Teresa, catch the water ferry. We took the Blue line to Fondamente Nuove, but it is probably a 20 - 30 minute walk, and we got thoroughly lost. Rialto bridge is a far better idea, as it's only a couple of streets away. There is a small square with a pharmacy on the corner, next door to that is a coffee bar, and the green door is opposite. Make sure you get a decent map of Venice, DON'T use google maps as we did, the streets they tell you to follow don't even exist in real life! Once you get to San Lio Tourist House, there will be a card with a map to the check-in site, it's fairly easy to find. Enjoy Venice, and spend a day just getting lost, it's all part of the fun, you find some beautiful places completely by accident.
