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.

We spent six nights in the Hotel Scandinavia earlier this year whilst holidaying in Venice. What's not to love. The hotel isn't on the Grand Canal but it is in a central location. Our room was small, simply furnished & a little dark, however the bathroom was fabulous &

I recently stayed with my children, triple room on the third floor. The view of the square was lovely, the room was clean and facilities good. A bit hard to find first time, but isn't that the joy of Venice? A good central base. The breakfast spread was more varied than

Response from Hotel-scandinav... V, Proprietario at Hotel Scandinavia

Buon giorno, grazie per aver scelto il nostro hotel e la nostra splendida città. Siamo molto spiacenti dell'inconveniente con le zanzare, purtroppo in pochi capiscono e conoscono Venezia, città unica al mondo, edificata su palafitte in una laguna paludosa e proprio perché si erge su una palude è sinonimo di zanzare. Bastava chiedere in portineria una macchinetta anti zanzare e il problema non sarebbe esistito. Purtroppo non possiamo lasciarle fisse nelle stanze perché la maggior parte delle persone non ama certi aromi. Ancora rammaricati la preghiamo di capire che ciò che ha vissuto fa parte di Venezia. La direzione

Water taxi is the best way you can buy your tickets at the airport either at the machine or at the taxi office at the port. When you get at the stop hospital walk right for about 5 minutes then take the 1st left walk down by the hospital when you get to the end go left again then turn right at the pastry shop over the bridge go right then left walktothe end turn right walk for about about 5 minutes. You will need a good torch as it is very dark

You have 2 options. There is a 24 hour waterbus that can take you to stop 2 Rialto but it’s then a 8-10min walk this is the most economical way. However, not sure if you have been to Venice before, it’s mostly cobblestone and you can get lost very easily for the first time. The best way is a private water taxi (very quick) especially if it’s your first time and travelling at night. There were four of us (2 kids) so we paid $109 AUD and the water taxi took us to the closest canal to Hotel Scandinavia and it was a short walk from there. We used Venice Link to book it. Hope this helps. George

Hi there - my room had a hairdryer which was very good and more powerful than the usual hotel hairdryers. No there were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room - I don’t think that this is so common in Italian hotels. I hope you enjoy Venice as much as I did. Regards Fiona

Do the rooms have tea and coffee making facilities?
Nope but they have it during breakfast. Not sure if you can ask for free or they have to charge you.
