The architecture is amazing like any other part of Venice however the rooms are awful. If climbing a million stairs with your suitcases turns you off then certainly don't stay here. Getting to the place is also quite annoying as its a few rides on transport then a long walk down a dark dingy lane. Venice island is basically going...

Simply ignore the scaring comments of other too sensitive tourists and just enjoy the old but charming, and at the end funny, Venetian flavour of this hotel, next to a nice wide square in town which is Campo Santa Maria Formosa, with the church of the same name. Very good value for 1 night at just a few minutes walk...

The worst hotel, in the most inaccessible location, with no staff at reception. The hotel rooms are on the highest floor of the building that is impossible to get to while carrying your luggage.The room was dirty and the bathroom smelled the same as a pig sty. I would not advise this hotel to anyone, not even who travels on...

Arrived at property to be told they had cancelled booking, which they actually did after we had arrived. Pay up front or you could be disappointed. Manager wouldn't even come and speak to us personally only on the phone.

We had a very large triple room with ensuite, TV and air con. We were very comfortable for our five nights. Breakfast was a cold buffet with enough choice of cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, cheese, ham, boiled eggs and condiments.the staff were really helpful. The only downside was that the Internet was not working so we had to go around...

Venice is one of the most expensive places ive ever stayed. Considering the price in comparison to other hotels, its not too bad. Firstly, it was not that easy to find despite having studied the map. There's a green door with a tiny sign down a random alleyway a 5-10 min walk from the water bus. We stayed on the...

This 2 star hotel has one star too many. It is Venice and hotel prices are exorbitant especially when George Clooney is town but this was not good value. We paid good money, the equivalent of a 5 star hotel back home, but this hotel is of a very low standard. It is hard to find, no one at tiny...

After a bit of struggle to find the Hotel from the Waterbuses the rest of the stay couldn't have been better. We were there for only the one night and the staff were more than accommodating with free breakfast and also went out her way to get our room ready before the stated check-in time. The location was great after...

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.

“Our room was on the 3rd floor. Lift only went up to 2nd floor. Choose floors on lower levels if you have heavy luggage.”
