Having read the reviews I was tempted to try and book elsewhere, which that would have been a great mistake as my visit was fine. The location of the Hotel is fantastic, and they send you a map with their location clearly marked and the...More
The hotel was ok. Can't really describe it as anything else! Definitely take a map with you to find it as we just had the address and had to stop in a restaurant where a kind waiter called them to find out where they 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.
