The hotel has extremely reduced common areas no hall and a tiny breakfast room. Rooms are reasonably big, a bit outdated, and quiet. Extremely helpful and kind staff. Location is perfect: very close to St. Mark Square and to the Arsenale but very quiet. Good...More
This is a nice hotel. Room was spacious and accommodating to a family of four. Staff were very helpful. Located in the heart of Venice with restaurants and shops nearby. Room was beautifully decorated and clean and comfortable.
It was probably a grand hotel 20 years ago but the failure to update to bring into the 21st century is notable.
Air con not working, no iron in the entire hotel, suspicious smells in the rooms, WiFi not working.

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.
