Just returned from a stay at this Hotel with 2 girlfriends. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a huge 2 room suite. We had more than enough space for 3 people, which is very hard to find in Venice. The room was clean, had great...More

Large rooms and great a/c. The staff was very helpful and answered all of our questions. The hotel was clean and the outdoor entry way was beautiful. The hotel is hard to find but it is very close to San Marco. Great bathroom.
On our recent trip to Venice we stayed here for four nights. It could not have been better. We had been upgraded to a larger room, and it was perfect for the two of us. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful, as...More
Front desk staff were great, room was large, Room 204. There was no folder in room to provide information about the hotel or Venice. The breakfast was very basic, and the staff (at breakfast) were just plain rude and unfortunately they require 1 week notice...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.

I stayed in the 'other' building. Whilst the rooms are ok (if mosquitos, shower surrounds held on with packing tape and limescale on the shower are acceptable in a luxury place) but the building is grim. It is down an alley... More
I stayed in the 'other' building. Whilst the rooms are ok (if mosquitos, shower surrounds held on with packing tape and limescale on the shower are acceptable in a luxury place) but the building is grim. It is down an alley at the back of some restaurants, smalls musty and damp and the rendering is peeling off the walls outside. It is VERY different from the hotel which is beautiful.
My personal view is that these rooms are a rip off but that is common in Venice - they know how to charge!
