My wife and I stayed here before taking a cruise on 1 July. We now wish that we had booked the same hotel upon our cruise's return as we were to spend another two nights in Venice before returning to Australia.

We just stayed in Venice for two nights, August 22-24, 2007. We were taking our teenage son on his first trip to Europe. First we went to Paris, then Venice and on to Rome.
Palazzo Schiavoni was terrific...the best part of our stay in Venice!...More
We were pleasently surprised when we entered the lobby after our first sighting of the hotel had us wondering just what we were in for, (a pink building that dosn't look at all like a hotel that we are used to) after meeting Antonio the...More
Our party of 4 enjoyed the lovely balcony rooms for 3 nights. The location is out of the tourist area but a short walk (10 minutes) to St. Mark's. The managers and breakfast hostess were helpful and courteous and made our stay most enjoyable. I...More
Good location and very nice room. The room was on the smaller side but everything was new and clean. You can tell they paid attention to detail. Located within walking distance to San Marco's Square. We stayed at four different hotels during our Europe vacation...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.
