A very practical base for a couple of days visiting Venice.
The host is very friendly and helpful.
The rooms could do with a bit of updating. Wi-Fi poor. Breakfast acceptable although the light going on and off is a little annoying. The rooms exit...More
My girlfriend and i stayed at this bed and breakfast for 7 days. Its a great starting point to explore Venice due to its location. Its a 15min walk to Piazza San Marco but its not located in the extreme touristic part of Venice. That...More
This B&B is nicely hidden in a non-touristic area, so in the morning, when you open the windows you get a glimpse of how it would be to live in Venice! There's no sign at the door but you can ring any bell - the...More

We managed to get a reservation on the day as a previous hotel was terrible. After a long day of travelling we finally arrived at this beautiful gem of a B & B. Rooms are very spacious and elegantly decorated. Bathrooms are spotless and stunning....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.
