Hotel location is very good, you can get to most places in a few minutes. Venice is a labyrinth of small corridors and bridges, always make sure you take a map because it is very easy to take the wrong street. Hotel was clean and...More
We were booked into this hotel as part of a pre-cruise group package. As others have mentioned it is quite charming and a fairly decent location; we were able to walk all around Venice, which was great! The breakfast buffet was substantial with many choices....More
Traditional and well kept.
Couldn’t fault it other than maybe add coffee making facilities in bedrooms and choice of pillow hardness. Ideal location to explore but not too noisy either. Get day tickets for the public boat transport and visit the islands
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Santa Marina Hotel, it seems like a small hotel, with quaint old Venetian style. Our bedroom was really quite tiny but the bed was comfy enough (pillows a bit hard), there was a small wardrobe and table,...More
One night stay in Venice.
This hotel is so charming you forget about how small your room really is. Beautifully decorated. The way the whole hotel was decorated and the ambiance was the reason I travelled to Italy!

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.

On the plane we bought a ticket which took you from the airport to Venice. These can also be purchased outside the airport. This is around a 20 min journey and will take you along their motorway. This ticket was €7.50 pp. When we arrived in Venice where there is no longer any cars, we purchased a water boat ticket at €7.50 as well, which took you along the canal. To got to the hotel, you need to get off at the Rialto stop, which it is a 5 minute walk from there. Took us longer as we got lost, but you can use google maps to help you get there. Venice is a beautiful city, but like a maze!

The vaporetta run a N ( night) service. You can find details online. You get off at the Rialto bridge. The hotel is a 10 minute stroll from there ( you do have to lug your suitcases up and down a few bridges over the canals!) we did it and it's not difficult. The Vaporetta are enormously cheaper than a water taxi. Depends on your budget I guess. Hope this helps.
