We blindly booked this hotel through Hotwire, so we did not know what to expect. Needless to say, a dissapointment is an understatement, but that's besides the point. The room was terribly small, it had a strange odor and there was mold build up by the fan in the bathroom. As if that wasn't enough, when we woke up we...

The last stop on our Italy trip we stayed at Hotel Castello. Of the three properties we stayed this was the best. It included a Very comfortable room, bathroom with a beautiful tub and an awesome breakfast that was included. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only negative is that there is no elevator.

This small hotel is very close to Piazza San Marco and not to difficult to get to with luggage (Usual problem in Venice)' Although the entrance is in one of those obscure narrow passages, we quite enjoyed staying there. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast was a typical European continental but good. The Dining hall is comfortable. The bathroom...

We visited this wonderful city and although we knew that we could expect a fairly small bedroom due to the nature of Venitian architecture and the age etc, we thought that's ok because at least we can sit on the roof terrace at night after a long day sightseeing. Yes there is a roof terrace but it is nothing like...

Our room was the size of my walk in closet. I know that hotel rooms in Europe can be small, but this one was ridiculous. The bed was pushed up right against the wall, otherwise you would not have been able to get in the door. I can handle old world ambience,but when they have a folded up piece of...

My wife and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Hotel Castello. To be brutally honest apart from it's location there is very little to commend it. We had paid a total of £414.28 for our 2 night stay and our expectations of accommodation of a quality commensurate with cost of the room. However the reality...

Our experience at this hotel was positive in all aspects. The rooms were very small for two of us with bags but they were clean, as were the bathrooms. Breakfast in the AM every morning was minimal but service was good and we got off to a great start each of the four days we stayed here. Best part was...

Very good location but poor hotel. Avoid Room 105 if you can. It is small and very dark and badly in need of decoration to update it. The breakfast choice is not very good with processed meat and rubbery cheese slices with no taste. Tea and coffee not good either. The only saving grace is it's situated close to St...

We were so happy with the location of this hotel! 5 mins from St.Marks Basilica and San Marcos Piazza. The hotel is hidden and if you ask for a map, the hotel or the street name is not on the map. We had a store clerk near the shops help us. It looks like a scary area to be at...

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello
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.
