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

A small and modest tourist hotel one block from the water bus and San Marco. Breakfast included. Room was a good size but steps very narrow and no lift. Ok for us but not accessible for those with disabilities.
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.
