Overall we were delighted with Albergo Doni. The location first of all is excellent being just a two minute walk from San Marco making it a great location for the heart of the city. The accommodation is basic but clean and in keeping with the...More
As a solo female traveler, I'm looking for safe, affordable, conveniently located accommodations. Everything else is an amenity. So, the Albergo Doni fills all my requirements.
It's easy to find, in a fantastic area, not far from The Bridge of Sighs, The Doge's Palace, etc.,...More
Note that most 5* ratings are by people w/few reviews. My observations: (Plus) location, location, location and price. On a quiet passageway a few blocks away from St. Mark’s (the primary +), decent bed, good sized room, some rooms (not ours) with canal view. (Minuses)...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 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.
