First off. This hotel is in prime location. But to get to it. You'll hv to go through a dark nasty looking alley, no elevator, fridge that doesn't work. Breakfast was the pits. Old furniture laying around blocking entrance to this hell hole of a room that Air Transat book for us. Bottom line. RUN if u hear this hotel...

Hotel Lux main building (the one with the lobby), room 404. I'm pretty sure we found bed bugs. See photos. First night husband and I each had a spot of blood on our pillow. Second night I thought I brushed an ant off my arm (they also had tiny ants on the floor). Third night was the earthquake in Italy,...

We are not experts on visiting Venice, however it is clear that location is everything. This hotel is ideally situated, but rooms are small and dark, breakfast is far from great, and breakfast tables so poky they are almost unusable. However, we think that this is what visiting Venice is about, Location is great, just accept that you will be...

Found this hotel to have very friendly staff, hotel had no lifts which we struggled with due to the amount of luggage, most hotels in Venice done have elevators, we managed to store most of our luggage in the storage area, sites were close by and room was very basic. Would recommend for story stays in Venice.

First of all, it's inadmissible that in the present there are hotels without free internet ... Although the staff was very friendly the rooms was dirty, the smell is terrible and have no conditions for a 3 star hotel.. the breakfast is very weak, in a general view I'm very disappointed in the experience

In my opinion, the only positive aspect was the receptionist, she was really nice and helpful and the location of the hotel. About the hotel, I don't recommend it. The rooms are dirty, have some bugs, the toilet sometimes don't work, the air conditioner doesn't stop so at night is too cold, the breakfast room only have 4 tables so...

This hotel has excellent location, it is within a few minutes walk from St Marks Square, and in walking distance to almost all the tourist sightseeing places. The hotel its self is clean and tidy. However, don't expect much else, it is outdated. Although, for the price and location of the hotel I think we can't complain too much. We...

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.

“There are no good rooms.”

“No elevator, so if you are not in shape, stay in the lower floors. Better yet... find another place.”

“There are no lifts and only rooms on second floor”

“Try to get a room on the second floor as that is actually the 3rd floor. Everything else is even higher and more stairs to climb.”
