Quaint, clean and very comfortable. Nice breakfast with wonderful cappuccino. Staff was very helpful with everything tourist and more. The location was perfect - close to St.Mark's square, the water taxi piers and even a laundry mat (we were mid 2 week trip).
We were worried about finding the hotel. It turned out to be very easy. The room was clean and tastefully decorated. There is no elevator. The hotel is walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
We have stayed here twice, first in June 2015 and then in September 2017. The reason is easy to explain. Location, location, location. First, near the San Zaccaria vaporetto stop. Then short walk up a narrow street, very few people to move around, no bridges...More
Lovely hotel, well situated for St Marks Square but tucked out of the way for a quiet stay. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Room top floor was lovely and very clean, help with luggage was no problem. The staff ensured that our...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.
