We stayed for 4 nights. The Hotel is very badic. We liked the price and we got what we paid for! It needs a refurbishment desperately. Beds were cleaned and made everyday. The carpets were badly worn amd if you struggle with stairs dont come...More
My girlfriend brought me here as a surprise, we got bumped up to the topmost room they possessed. It was the only room on the 5th floor, and quite isolated. Perfect for us as a couple!
First of all, there are a lot of stairs,...More
Not the best of experience, missing basic amenities e.g. no Wi-Fi, room wasn't even in the main building; the one main thing going for it is the location, right around the corner from Piazza San Marco and Saint Mark's Basillica other than that, I am...More
The only positive thing about this hotel is the location. Located close to San Zaccharia stop and just a 2 minute walk to St. Mark's square. We were shifted to another building which was in the lane next to the original hotel building. The rooms...More
I was quite worried to stay at the hotel after the negative reviews I read, however it was a pleasant surprise when I arrived. Yes I had to climb 5 flights of stairs but my luggage was carried up to the room by the staff....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.

We walked to the closest boat dock, took the boat to the airport (NOT a water taxi, but the regularly-running boat to the airport with multiple stops - water taxi is hugely expensive unless you split the cost with others). Suggest purchasing ticket the day before. Allow about up to 90 minutes for the trip, depending on what stop you board the boat. When you get to airport dock, there is about a 10-minute walk to the airport terminal. This was the best method for the pricing. Heard bad things about the bus.
