Unfortunately we had already left on holiday before the previous comments were posted. Room 30 is exactly as described. When we eventually found the place there was the buzzer and the disemdodied voice telling us to wait, pleasant lady came but she didn't speak one...More
There were so many terrible things about this accommodation that I had to start writing a list! I really want travellers to know about our experience, and hopefully save someone else from a disappointing stay. I hope the owner also reads this, and thinks about...More
Arranged for my daughter to stay in this hotel, with travelling companion for her 18th birthday. She loved the place. Convenient yet quiet. Particularly liked the breakfast arrangement in the courtyard. I contacted the hotel staff to arrange a birthday cake etc. as a 'surprise'....More
Stayed here in June 2009, very nicely decorated, and very quiet. In the area of nice little cafes and restaurants too, not far from St. Mark's square, if I remember correctly. It seemed a little shady how we had to call someone, who'd then come...More
Pros: Great location, even though we struggled to find the place. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room was nicely furnished and reasonably clean.

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.
