The room was reasonable, and since we are in Venice, I understand some things. however the bathroom was equipped with a pump to suck water, it broke down twice and sewage discharged into the ground at that time called the receptionist, who gave a look and told us that now was well and nothing more. we are looking at one...

I stayed at this hotel with a friend's recommendation who stayed there three years ago. Since my friend's good recommendation was enough encouraging, we were so exited to have a nice vacation in the most beautiful city in the world, but it turned out to be exactly the opposite. We arrived in Venice around early afternoon and after calling the...

Situated in a secluded and dimly lit street at night is scary. The first day gave us a small room that only had two beds, a broken television and a tap with two towels. The bathroom was shared with other hotel guests. One day when we returned from sightseeing, our room had been changed by an even smaller room. They...

I had an unexpected trip to Venice, so did not do any planning, and had one night without a room. Fava had space, but coming up to it at night was scary- a very dark alley, an abandoned square, but quite close to Rialto bridge (so the feeling of 'too' quiet). The room itself was really minimal but clean, and...

We spent a month in Europe and found this room to be the most expensive, at $250 US per night. It had the worst view that we had experienced anywhere, we looked at the next building's drain pipe, 3ft away. The room was small and had no appeal at all, it didn't even have a picture on the wall. The...

It was extremely difficult to find accomodations in Venice. All of the hotels recommended in guide were booked or outrageously expenseive, so we found the Alla Fava as a secondary choice. It was defintely secondary accomodations for its price, and was the least desireable hotel we stayed in during our trip. The rooms were small, dingy and thinly-walled. The air...

From the outside, my husband and I were a little weary of the hotel. The light outside the hotel was broken, and the hotel is located in a dark corner, just off the main area. We did not have a canal view, or any view from that matter. The hotel staff were fine, though not particularly helpful, and the rooms...

So nice little hotel with a delightful room overlooking the canal..what else? I just paid 135,00 euro per night, during high season. Perfect position, quiet but in the center just 2 minutes by feet from rialto and 5 from san marco. I reccomend it!

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Alla Fava overlooks Campo della Fava, a small square where Casanova used to meet his young lovers. In the square, the church of Santa Maria della Fava hosts some famous works by Giambattista Tiepolo and Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. Hotel Alla Fava is one minute from the famous Rialto Bridge, one of the main sights in Venice hosting the rich and colourful fruit and vegetable market which enlivens the heart of the city every day. St Mark’s Square and the Bridge of Sighs are also at walking distance. The main public transport hub on the Grand Canal is 3 minutes away and connects to the main sights, to easily reach the islands in the Laguna: Murano, Burano and Torcello. When staying at Hotel Alla Fava, everything Venice has to offer is just a short walk away. ... more   less
