I stayed in triple room upstairs. Room was very clean and spacious. Bathroom was clean and everything was in working order. House cleaning service was prompt and courteous. AC was working fine. WIFI was bit weak in the room but strong at the restaurant. This place is in the middle of the city and many attractions are nearby. Breakfast was... More

This was our first time to Venice and we wanted to have a cultural experience without paying 5 star prices. First with the positive: The room that we stayed in looks like the photos. There is a good air conditioner in the room, a mini frig and the bed was comfortable, but pillows are hard and flat. It was a... More

Me and my girlfriend came across this restaurant by chance after looking for a while and we were not disappointed. I had spaghetti pomodoro and she had the ravioli in veggie sauce. Neither of us were disappointed and enjoyed our pasta. So much so we went later on and tried something different, I had pene in a curry sauce and... More

We have booked 2 nights at this B&B hotel in the heart of Venice. However we cannot consider this is a hotel by any standard as it has only 4 rooms and is situated on the 1st floor of a restaurant. The rooms are big and reasonably clean with separate air conditioning. Actually Taverna San Lio is run by the... More

Stayed about a year ago. A small b&b above a little cafe / restaurant. Good location, but a little tricky to find at the first time of asking. The room was comfortable and clean.

This was a return trip to Venice and we managed to find the restaurant we had enjoyed a few years ago. We chose the Tourist Menu as it is such good value 19 Euros and the restaurant was just as we remembered it. The staff are very attentive and the food was delicious.

Bottom line: while the room was decent, this property was falsely advertised and not at all what I expected. Superb location. The Taverna San Lio is not a hotel, an inn, or a B and B. It is 4 renovated rooms on the second floor of a somewhat dilapidated building. The room itself was decent, and breakfast was OK, but... More

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.

“Our room overlooked the street/alley and, while it could be noisy at times, quieted considerably with the windows closed. Someone else who stayed there said not to take the room over the kitchen as the smells wafted up too much.”

“The street side rooms are a little noisy if you're unused to a city centre location. Having spoken to some fellow guests, I understand that non street side rooms are a little quieter. Worthwhile considering if you're a light sleeper.”
