Clean apartment with basic facilities but in a great location next to all ferries terminals and san Marco square and main attractions of the city of Venice. Highly recommended for a short time visiting
This hotel is better avoided. It's overpriced, the internet is a scam and some staff is unfriendly. Besides the breakfast is very poor. When you try to get an explanation from the staff, they are cheeky enouph to start aguing. The rooms are tiny and...More
In our experience the hotel is very well situated. Near San Marco square. Hotel rooms are placed in many alleys. We found rooms to be clean but be aware there are no lifts and we had to carry our luggage 2 flights of stairs. No...More
The location was good, but our room was very small, besides there was no elevator in the hotel so we had to take our suitcases up the stairs, luckily later another man at the reception came and took them upstairs for us, and he was...More
Sorry to say but it was bad. It's down a dark alley way and if you aren't paying very careful attention you'll miss it. Some say the location is great, but come back at 1 am in pitch blackness and we'll see how you feel....More
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 neighborhood 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.

We walked to the closest boat dock, took the boat to the airport (NOT a water taxi, but the regularly-running boat to the airport with multiple stops - water taxi is hugely expensive unless you split the cost with others). Suggest purchasing ticket the day before. Allow about up to 90 minutes for the trip, depending on what stop you board the boat. When you get to airport dock, there is about a 10-minute walk to the airport terminal. This was the best method for the pricing. Heard bad things about the bus.
