For our return trip to Venice after many many years, we wanted a full-on luxury Venetian experience and picked this hotel. Our tastes lean towards the clean modern look so the hotel was a lot to take in but we did not find it overwhelming...More
From the minute you enter The Metropole from the bustling streets and canals it is calm and tranquillity. The decor is in keeping with the age of the hotel but not overbearing and depressing. Some might say everywhere is too dark but a unique atmosphere...More
This hotel is a real beauty. Just 4-5 blocks away form Piazza San Marcos and facing the canal, the atmosphere, the rooms and the common spaces are hard to believe. They have several collections that add up to the mood, and staff is very helpful....More
The location is great, the internal decoration and furniture is top notch, the breakfast buffet is extraordinary and the service is attentive and good.
It is not perfect and there is a but, and for us it was the room. Our room was a bit...More
We stayed in June with a friend. We had a grand deluxe room that was very good in size. The hotel has a decoration that you cannot tell if it's old or really venetian. The service at the reception desk was very good all day,...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.

Don't know what RT means (it is advisable to avoid acronyms), but there is no road between the airport and Venice (which is on an island) and the hotel does help with transfer booking by water taxi, but it is not free (in fact quite expensive, around 100 €).

I wouldn't book a tour of either. Just go there on your own initiative then you can spend as little or as long as you like at either place. Everyone speaks English so it would be no different to you going to downtown... More
I wouldn't book a tour of either. Just go there on your own initiative then you can spend as little or as long as you like at either place. Everyone speaks English so it would be no different to you going to downtown Manhattan! Everything is so easy to find. Even if you don't have a map, it's all on your smart phone.

Outside the train station you will see the canal. The only way to get to the hotel is by boat (only transport in Venice). There are 2 types of boat - private hire (cost under negotiation of €60-70), or the public boat (like a bus) which will cost approx €10 but takes a long time. The public boat is on the left as you come out of the station.
The public boat itself stops outside the hotel, and you can take this to the airport (it takes about 1 hour) but make sure you are on the correct boat
