We stayed in the annexe of the hotel, which is just across the canal so you do not actually feel part of the hotel. We paid £240 per night (this did not include breakfast which was another 20 Euros - didn't try it).
Arrived by private water taxi from the airport. Only way to arrive, felt like the King and Queen. Hotel is right on a canal and so accessible to Piazzo San Marco. There are so many shops and restaurants all around. We just wandered and got...More
Stayed here for 3 nights recently.
It is conveniently placed for St Marks Square, the Grand Canal and there are shops and restaurants in every direction.
The central position means that most sights are only a 10-20 minutes walk away.

We stayed in the separate Wellness Suite, the building is 1-2 min away from the main hotel and the entrance could look a bit sketchy (as if you would walk in any other house on the street, only a doorbell indicates the room), but the...More
We stayed at this wonderful hotel for 3 nights mid week. From start to finish it was a great experience. The staff are all without exception outstanding, they just can not do enough to make you feel welcome. The rooms are very spacious and well...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.

I stayed in the 'other' building. Whilst the rooms are ok (if mosquitos, shower surrounds held on with packing tape and limescale on the shower are acceptable in a luxury place) but the building is grim. It is down an alley at the back of some restaurants, smalls musty and damp and the rendering is peeling off the walls outside. It is VERY different from the hotel which is beautiful.
My personal view is that these rooms are a rip off but that is common in Venice - they know how to charge!
