On arrival at the hotel, we were greeted by the pleasant receptionist and checked in. The receptionist informed us we were in the 'other building' - round the back, near the bins... Our room was in an alleyway where nearby restaurant workers took a fag break. Unimpressed. The room had an awful smell the whole 3 nights that intensified each...

Reception: It was fine, not good as i expected, when I arrive the first thing they told me is not to talk loudly cause other guests are sleeping, it was around 10pm. Location: Is very good, close to San Marcos and even closer to Zacarias vaporetto station. Rooms: There's not elevator, so be ready to lift your suitcases I got...

Dear Guest, thank you for choosing Rio Hotel to spend your holidays in Venice. We are really sorry that we did not give you a first good impression of our reception service, however at check-in time, which was around 10:30-10:45 pm, you came at front desk shouting and ringing our reception bell unnecessarily, when there were already two receptionists in...

Very good location close to Basilica di San Marco and San Zaccaria pier. Room is clean, they have a map of the city, and they provided bottled water, and coffee sachets everyday. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Small room, wifi signal weak. Some noise outside the room, plumbing, and in the hallways, can be heard even with shutters and...

Stayed here in March 2017 and it was perfect for what we needed. Such good value for what we paid for it. Location is perfect, just around the corner from St Mark's, and about 5-10mins from Rialto Bridge. Room was clean and comfortable, though was a little noisy around 9-12pm with the restaurants and bars in the squares below.

This hotel.. I'd say more of a room only b&b though was perfect for what we wanted. Would be nice if breakfast included was a option though. Got sweets, biscuits, tea and coffee facilities and bottles of water included in the room. 2 minutes walk from San Marco square, 5 minutes from Rialto bridge. Venice though on a whole -...

3 small alley walkways linking to this hotel. 3mins walk to Doge Palace and Saint Mark's Basilica. Hotel amenities are minimal but sufficient for personal use (coffee sachets, sugar, hotpot,etc). Quiet corner during the night, stay vigilant. Day time is bustling with activities during the Venice carnival. 5mins walk from San Zaccaria pier for the water taxi, private taxi and...

This hotel was a gem! The staff was great, room was spacious, clean and had a wonderful view to the small shops outside. The interior was modern, complimentary wifi. There is an excellent seafood restaurant next door, which has amazing food!

The hotel is a great location, rooms a bit in the small side but still very clean and great value for money. Only small negative is that there could be soundproofing from the corridor side as you can hear them start to prepare the rooms at 8am and may wake up late risers.

Dear Guest, thank you for choosing our hotel to spend your vacation in Venice. We are really sorry that your Venetian experience was ruined by nasty insect bites, however we would like to point out that those insects were tiger mosquitoes, not bed bugs as you stated on your review (probably because you saw just their bites and unfortunately they...

The biggest advantage of this hotel - its location. Merely a few minutes from St. Mark's Square. Street unloaded and quiet around. * The room - spacious enough, there are several closets, TV, mini-bar, every day a few bottles of water. * Staff - always helpful, cooperative and pleasant. * Cons - poor sound isolation. We have heard how other...

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello
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.
