Like everyone else it was hard to find and you actually go to another hotel to check in.The staff were helpful and efficient. We were given a nice room (106) which was over a shop that played load music until 10:30 at night very hard...More
This is a quirky little hotel. The room itself was plenty big (we booked a double), the bathroom was tiny but clean and everything worked (water pressure and temperature), you have to pay for the internet but it works well and you really cannot beat...More
My boyfriend and I booked an extra night to stay in Venice after our cruise.
The room was excellent. Very clean and new. But one down side was that our air conditioning did not seem to work properly...so it was a bit stuffy. The internet...More
If you enjoy sleeping in a closet this place is fine. The air conditioning was broken and they did not care. The internet did not work and they did not care. The photo is deceiving . The location is very hard to find and first...More

You threatened us with the Tripadvisor review to steal us 78,00 euros and you made it….well done!!
To be fair i'd like to explain to all the honest customers and colleagues of Tripadvisor what happened:
the customer booked a double economy room for 3 nights...More
Arrived in this maze of a city of the Rialto vaperetto station and stumbled right to the door. I can see how it can be tricky to find but what isn't in Venice? Staff at check in was very helpful and friendly. Cleaning staff were...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 agree with Teresa, catch the water ferry. We took the Blue line to Fondamente Nuove, but it is probably a 20 - 30 minute walk, and we got thoroughly lost. Rialto bridge is a far better idea, as it's only a couple of... More
I agree with Teresa, catch the water ferry. We took the Blue line to Fondamente Nuove, but it is probably a 20 - 30 minute walk, and we got thoroughly lost. Rialto bridge is a far better idea, as it's only a couple of streets away. There is a small square with a pharmacy on the corner, next door to that is a coffee bar, and the green door is opposite. Make sure you get a decent map of Venice, DON'T use google maps as we did, the streets they tell you to follow don't even exist in real life! Once you get to San Lio Tourist House, there will be a card with a map to the check-in site, it's fairly easy to find. Enjoy Venice, and spend a day just getting lost, it's all part of the fun, you find some beautiful places completely by accident.
