We arrived late at night so the hotel kindly organised a private water taxi to get us from the train station to the hotel (with hindsight, we probably wouldn't have been able to...

The location of IQs is great, close to San Marco but in a very quiet area. We loved the apartment and it's design, and the bottle of Prosecco in the room...

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Charming House. We found the area very convenient and the help outstanding. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a living area. We arranged a water taxi through the property and it was so convenient. Would come back to this property again!

We enjoyed our stay very much in this nice apartment which is located directly at a small canal only a short walk from Piazza San Marco. The friendly staff was very helpful with restaurant and tour tips.

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.

“If you're travelling as a couple, book one of the two rooms on the Santa Maria Formentera side. The biggest room is brighter and larger but the bedroom doesn't face the canals and is a little less romantic in feel.”
