The hotel overlooks a square ideally situated halfway between the airport transfer boat stops and San Marco Square, each only a 5-10 minute walk away. We were on the top floor which took a while to reach as there are no lifts, but the room...More

Rooms are nice.
Great wifi coverage
Yummy breakfast with an automated coffee machine.

Loved this hotel. The staff was very helpful. Nice, clean rooms. Loved sitting outside in the morning watching the piazza setting up their stands and watching it come alive. Enjoyed the location and the staff helped us find great places to eat.
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.
