We had a wonderful stay in Venice and were so pleased with the spacious accommodations, friendly and helpful hosts and perfect location. Our family of four had plenty of room in the 2 bedroom plus kitchen/living area. We loved the location that was close to everything but still felt like we were a bit away from the crush of tourists....

Very friendly service, good communication, helpful and always with smile. Highly recommend!!! Small room (can't expect more in Venice historical buildings) but very tidy and warm decorate, more than enough for me and my wife. Excellent location, couple minutes away from San Marco square and water bus stop. ( we purchased a two day pass for €30) best way to...

Rodolfo, Elisabetta and Lilya are wonderful hosts. We had the top floor apartment and it was beautiful. I spent plenty of time on the terrace just watching gondolas on the scenic canals, and the people strolling by. Wonderful location not too far from the vaporetto, and just far enough away from Piazza San Marco for it to be accessible while...

This B&B is affordable, especially when you take into consideration the location and the average price of accommodation in Venice. We were not expecting our suite to be as large as it was and the private terrace and canal views were an added bonus for our pleasant stay.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful holiday in Venice, our first time in the city. We felt extremely welcomed by the staff at l'Osmarin. Rudolfo welcomed us to the delightful B and B, who showed us to our room and gave us some advice on places to visit with a very useful map. This warm welcome made us feel...

As we got there Rodolfo showed us many places on a map in Venice. That was really nice. We've got a big room with two bed and bathrooms. The rooms where clean and comfortable. Lilly and Rodolfo where super nice. The BB is only 10 Min. away from San Marco what is super central. The breakfast was also really good....

My daughter and I enjoyed a very special holiday in Venice and this stay was made particularly memorable by the welcome and comfort we experienced at Residenza de l' Osmarin. We were keen to avoid large hotels and to experience more of the real Venice. Maria Elisabetta, her husband Rodolfo, and Lilia could not have done more to achieve this...

The Osmarin has bright and clean rooms and, when booked at the last moment, may represent value for money. However I was disappointed. The communal areas appeared rather characterless and although there is plenty of food at breakfast a greater variety of bread and some freshly squeezed orange juice would have been appreciated. The signs on the back of the...

This B&B is just perfect. Our suite was great: two bedrooms, private terace, dinner zone (with a set of dinner table and several chairs, not just one chair and small coffe table) and small kitchen. There was no need for us to cook ourselves because the B&B serves a really good breakfast, and in the evening we went eating out....

This was an excellent place to stay. Great location, only a few minutes' walk from San Zaccaria vaporetto stop. Beautiful old building but very well appointed inside. Very comfy bed, good powerful shower. And very quiet and peaceful, while only a short distance from the hustle and bustle of St Mark's Square. Excellent coffee with breakfast. The owners, Maria Elisabetta...

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
