This tiny hotel is a 20- minute walk from St. Mark Bassilica. Our room was very tiny and had no place to open our luggage. The one tiny pillow for each bed was smelly...we figured that the Staff might have forgotten to change the pillow...More
We had stayed at this hotel in the past, and we were looking forward to a return stay. The location is perfect - just a short walk to St. Mark's, but also close to a quiet garden area and residential section. We had a junior...More
Booked this hotel after reading the mostly positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and was not disappointed. Loved the location - a quieter part of Venice but still less than 15 minutes walk to St Mark’s Square. Two Vaporetto stops also within easy walking distance. There...More
Had the pleasure of staying here and was given room 405. We arrived very late. The room had a large Queen size bed, satellite TV, mini bar and bath room en suite.

When we first checked in, we were given a very very small room. Hardly big enough for one let alone two. We asked to be changed to a larger room. They were unable to change us that night, but did get us a different room...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.

Dear Mrs. Trinch,
from the Airport Marco Polo you can take a Water Taxi direct to our Hotel jetty, the taxi can take up to 8 people plus luggage; the cost for 6 people and luggage should be 120.00/130.00 Euro and the ride will take only 30 minutes.
You can also reserve it in advance from the Venezia Taxi website
In alternative there is the public Shuttle Boat ALILAGUNA Blue Line to Arsenale, it cost 15.00 Euro per person and takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
If you send us a direct email we can provide you with detailed instructions on a pdf file.
Looking forward to the pleasure of hearing further from you, we remain,
with best regards,
Marco Simonetto, Manager
