We stayed here with our family for a few days at the end of our Italian tour. The location was fabulous, close to everything we needed and just a short walk from Piazza San Marco. The service was incredible, helping draw out a walking tour and making arrangements for a water taxi to pick us up at 3:00 am. It...

I have booked two rooms with AVIOS and they have sent the wrong reservation. Basically, they only reserved one room. The concierge was very helpful and contacted the manager immediately. In 15 minutes, we were unpacking our stuff in two rooms. The location is great, walking distance to everywhere. Breakfast average, not bad. But most important, the customer service. Everyone...

This hotel is in a good location without being right in the middle of the noise. The rooms are smallish, as are the bathrooms, however, it is a true old European hotel. Very charming, but what makes this hotel special is the staff. We enjoyed talking with them about all kinds of things. They were also just incredibly helpful for...

Very easy to find as it's in the square of Santa Maria Formosa. On check in the staff were very helpful and showed us the easiest routes to the various attractions. Our room was on the 1st floor and over looked the square. The room itself was large and both it and the bathroom were very clean. About a 5...

The hotel is located in the center of Venice in an open square. The lift was out of service, but the staff were kind enough to carry our luggage upstairs. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with providing us directions to all our points of interest and information on how to best move about around Venice. Breakfast was delightful,...

The staff here are so helpful and friendly. The place is very old but Venice is all about ancient things. It was clean and tidy. I read few bad reviews but I don't think they were true. It be great for short stay.

Stayed here at the end of September. The hotel has a good location. The breakfast room was a lite small and you may have to wait for a table, the choice was very limited. The room clean. Reception was good at advising of good restaurants in the area. An average hotel but ok for the money.

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.
