The photos are decidedly deceptive. The location is good in that it is 15 mins from St Marks Square. However, that is where it sadly ends. The property is very hard to find. When you do finally find it, there is no one on reception...More
We stayed at this hotel as the first night of a two week tour of Italy. We arrived in the evening after dark and despite directions, a map and Google, we still had to ask a local to find the hotel. That said it was...More
We chose the hotel partly as a reasonable price for Venice but think we chose well. Good location close to the waterfront and San Marco but an interesting area in its own right with several places to eat, the best of which was pretty well...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.
