I saw some negative reviews and I can only guess they were written by individuals that have not traveled to Venice before. It's Venice - the city is old. You are not going to find lifts in most hotels, and you should be prepared to...More
We paid good money and had booked well in advance. We had a triple room booked and arrived in the middle of the afternoon, it was a Thursday and just moving into summer. The room that we got shown to was on the fourth floor....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.
