We booked 2 rooms for 4 nights. The location of the hotel is wonderful. The rooms on first view are excellent. In one room the toilet was choked up with a block and sat on a lean, the shower screen did not work and water...More
We had 2 rooms and stayed 3 nights. The hotel is very convenient to the city center and the water ferry stop. It was about a 10-15 walk to the main square and the ferry stop was only 2 bridges away (a 5 minute walk)....More
Superbly located hotel which is bit dated but nonetheless comfortable with friendly staff. We were upgraded to junior suite with great canal side view. Breakfast was ok with some fresh fruit on one of the days. All in all a great value hotel.
Basic room but very comfortable, breakfast is continental but lots of choice. Hotel is very clean and staff are very helpful and polite. St Marks Square is just a 20 minute walk. The cafes around the square are very reasonably priced considering where they are,...More

We were lucky enough to stay at this charming hotel, from the outside it looks dated and tired, but that only adds to its character
Reception staff are extremely helpful and speak excellent English, they have a good knowledge of Venice and can help you...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.

Waterbus. Tell them you want to get off at The Aresenale stop. When you get off walk over 2 bridges ( away from san Marco) ..The hotel is on the left. In from the lagoon. The road junctions. It's inbetween 2 restaurants. If you get a chance walk along the laggon edge to the park.

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
