It's a three! I understand this hotel has been given high marks by other travellers but here is my honest opinion. The hotel is in a great location midway between San Marco and the Rialto. The square the hotel is situated in is quiet as...More
The staff were all so helpful. Great location near St Marks and Rialto. Great balcony to sit and relax. Love watching some local children kick a soccer ball around and the comings and goings of the locals.
From the moment our booking was made via their website, the staff made contact and were very friendly and efficient. We were offered an upgrade (at a reasonable rate) and decided to opt for it – I’m glad we did. The room was magnificent and...More
We have just returned from 2 nights at this hotel. The staff are absolutely fantastic and so helpful. They really do go above and beyond to point you in the right direction and gave us fantastic restaurant suggestions (and these aren't based on a restaurant...More
Perfect price for travelers on a budget and HUGE rooms!
My husband and I comfortably shared a room with two others. Placed within walking distance of fine shopping and local dining. The view outside our window (photos) was charming...couldn't ask for 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.

You will definitely want to take a water taxi. Walking would be unthinkable with luggage. We stayed at the hotel after a cruise as well. It should be about 70-90 Euros, but well worth it as the drop off will be right next to... More
You will definitely want to take a water taxi. Walking would be unthinkable with luggage. We stayed at the hotel after a cruise as well. It should be about 70-90 Euros, but well worth it as the drop off will be right next to the hotel - the driver will know, and you will get a short canal tour!
