Nice location, a bit of the beaten track and quite easy to get to by public transportation via the water bus, but still close enough to walk to the places you want to see while in Venice. Service minded and friendly receptionists.

I far away gem at the edge of Venice. Really felt nice to return there away from the bustle of town. There is a coop supermarket very close by, and restaurants are cheaper and more local nearby too. It's no luxury place FYI...
Quite simple room, wonderfully hospitable and helpful host in a quiet location that is perfect for visiting the Biennale. Great views from the lovely living room. Here's hoping the price is kept so affordable.

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.
