The Lux Hotel is very well situated and despite the compact size of bedroom and bathroom we had a comfortable stay and it was good value. Room 441 was up 5 flights of narrow stairs at the rear of the annexe building and was very quiet. The decor was Venetian style –fabric on the walls etc. Breakfasted at 8 am...

NOT WRITTEN BY HOTEL - EXTREMELY HONEST Hotel Lux is two buildings: one to check in, the other to live in. You might open the door to your room and think it a broom closet. Just walk in a little further and you'll find a rather clean bathroom. This is where you'll be staying. Luckily, you're in Venice. So if...

The hotel is quite charming with its small side street entrance and beautiful mirror and wood lined stairway to the front desk. It is an easy 3 minute walk to the vaparetto, St. Marks, internet point, and many restaurants and cafes. Room was small but clean and the chamber service was very good. However I found the staff to be...

Returned from our second trip to Venice and used the Hotel Lux as our base for four nights this time. Arrived via Ryanair and took the hassle free shuttle bus direct from the airport to Piazzale Roma at the top end of Venice. Hopped on the No1 vaporetti and took beautiful moon lit trip down the Grand Canal getting off...

I had friends that stayed there and thought it was very nice. However, my experience was the same as some of the other negative reviews. We entered an lovely lobby to register and then we were taken outside, down the way and around the corner to another building. The room was dank, low ceilinged and almost claustraphobic. We had stayed...

We booked 4 rooms for 3 nights after a lot of research, including TripAdvisor comments: we are 4 couples and go somewhere different every year. Within a mixed budget, this was spot on for price and location: but what would it be like? Well it ticked the boxes really: it was bang on in the heart of Venice, the rooms...

Hotel Lux has an excellent location to stay at while in Venice. This was our first of 3 hotels and first time in Italy. Everything worked out fine. Right in the heart of everything, but the side streets have great cafes and shops. Internet cafe right down the street. Room was small, but clean. We did walk up 3 flights...

My husband and I stayed one night at Hotel Lux before taking a cruise from Venice. We were very happy with the hotel and had no problems at all. Since we had done extensive research on hotels prior to our trip, we knew that Hotel Lux does not have an elevator, so we weren't surprised or disappointed about that. When...

Just returned from 5 nights at Hotel Lux and have nothing negative to say about the hotel. We stayed in the cozy top floor room (no. 501) - not much space but plenty of charm and a nice view to the Doge's Palace. The breakfast is a continental buffet with cereal, yoghurt, rolls, croissants, juice and different kinds of hot...

Spent two weeks in Tuscany, Rome and Venice. All my other hotels were great. The Hotel Lux was terrible. First, the lobby is in one building. You register, and they tell you to go around the corner, into another building. We were on the third floor with no elevator. I had my room reserved for four months and I can't...

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello
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.

“No elevator, so if you are not in shape, stay in the lower floors. Better yet... find another place.”
