I stayed here three nights last summer. The location is wonderful, right on a canal. The nunnery is big, but nice and quiet. My room was on the 4th floor, big enough with two single beds, nice window with a view over the real venice. The a/c worked great and the bathroom was modern and large for a single room....

Stayed here around Easter 2011 when hotel prices when through the roof- this is reasonably priced, secure, comfortable and well located accommodation. The nuns are very helpful, but communicaton limited if you do not speak italian. Had a room with twin beds which was spotlessly clean but beds slightly on the small side. There is a nightly curfew since this...

My wife and I had 4 good nights here. We wanted clean, simple accommodation at a budget price and got exactly that. It is run by nuns and contains a primary school, although the children were on holiday. Being an ex teacher I would have liked to see it up and running. Will have to go back. It is a...

This is a monastery, extremely spacious and brilliantly located. I can guarantee that you won't find so much space in Venice at so affordable a price. San Marco Piazza is less than 5 mins away! But ofc, you have to be ok with the curfew of 11 pm in summers...it worked for us :)

To be greeted by a nun in white is not what you would expect of the place you would be staying at in Venice, but this is exactly what will happen. And a very friendly, welcoming nun she will be - as their description states: they are the hospitality sisters. This is not a hotel; it’s an hospitality house set...

I couldn't fault this place - the room was simple but warm and comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the location could not be better - a short walk to San Marco, Rialto and Cannareggio. The building had a lot of character and there was a school downstairs so it was fun watching all the little Italian...

The common story on accommodations in Venice is high prices for very small rooms. We rented two rooms for three nights ( a double and a single) through Monastary Stays in late September 2010 for 348 E. Cash only. Pay the evening before you leave. Both rooms were large. Both had shuttered windows, tiled floors, a closet, private bathrooms with...

great, gentle service. Stayed three nights. room clean and very nice. the location very quiet and was just 5 minutes from Piazza San Marco on the main route to the Rialto Bridge, and you can't beat that.

The location is wonderful, the accommodation is great value for money but it was sometimes difficult to make it back in time for the strict 10:30 curfew. My biggest problem was that my passport 'disappeared' from my room on the second day there. Don't be complacent just because you feel in a safe environment! I certainly don't suspect the sisters...it...

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
