Easy to locate and a very short walk from San Zaccaria water bus. Rooms are quaint. Bathroom is small but adequate. No lift but they will help you with luggage. One tip is to travel as lite as possible when in Venice. Located off a great square with places to eat drink and shop . Quick walk to St Mark's....

Friendly staff, welcoming, very clean room. Large room and bathroom and a view of the square. Good wifi, we were able to stream Netflix. Close to St Mark's Square and other sites. Close to transportation. There can be a lot of stairs so be aware of that.

Location is a couple of blocks, if you can call them blocks in Venice, from Basilica di San Marco / St Mark's Square and the entrance to the Grand Canal. Comfort - we had a large, very comfortable, one bedroom flat with kitchen and two balconies. Top floor with no lift though, so three flights of stairs. Staff was very...

A beautiful 15th century small hotel. Very traditional decor. Very steep stairs up to our attic room but worth it. Very clean and welcoming. Staff very friendly and helpful. Fab location on a tiny street very close to st marks square and the bridge of sighs. Lots of restaurants and shops close by. Breakfast nice but limited choice..

The hotel is on 2 sites, the main hotel and the annex. Our room was on the first floor of the annex and we were taken ther by Marco, a kindly Receptionist. He suggested a good place to eat locally which we much enjoyed. Our room was clean and typically Venetian with a good sized bathroom containing the usual and...

This is our second visit to this hotel. So conveniently situated for sightseeing and for the water taxis.Owners and staff are lovely. Continental breakfast is served on the top floor and they make a great cappacchino! Room and bathroom very clean, only minor complaint that there are no English channels on the TV to catch up with the news. We...

This hotel is perfect for a short break in Venice. A very easy transfer from Marco Polo airport to San Marco or San Zaccaria on the Aliaguna river taxi. The hotel is clean and confortable and includes a substantial continental breakfast. It is 5 minutes walk from San Marco and surrounded by restaurants and cafes.

Stayed here for three nights with another couple. We had two rooms with queen beds in each. Pros: great location, easy access to the canal and St Mark's. Very helpful front desk and owners. Decent size shower where you can actually turn. Cons: as with many old hotels, three full flights of stairs to navigate (definitely for the young), very...

Managed to book Locanda just one week prior to my arrival. It was easy enough to find this B&B, and it just a short walk from the main Zaccaria ferry terminal ( I took the Aliguana from the Airport - Zaccaria for about 15Euros, 1.5h ride but more scenic and straightforward route). The location was impeccable, with just a short...

I stayed here for 2 nights in September. The location is unbeatable, really central but not too loud and you have everything on your doorstep from small bars, shops, restaurants and San Marco Square. I stayed in a double room which was spacious and spotless. The room was typically Venetian and was just perfect. The breakfast was good, I certainly...

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.
