Lovely hotel. Really good location with both the Rialto Bridge and St Mark's Square just a few minutes walk away. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble for them. When we booked the brochure said there was...More

Venice in general is a nightmare to navigate, but once we found the hotel it was easy to get to each evening. It’s in a great location, nice plaza, music in the evening and market stalls in the daytime. Lots of locals here in the...More
This is a very nice hotel. The staff is wonderfully friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and we loved the shutters that opened and looked out to the square. A wonderful musician played his violin often and it was magical. The breakfast was very...More
The Scandinavia Hotel is a quaint hotel situated in a square opposite one of the very many churches. Inside as you can imagine it’s pretty small but adequate, I think that’s the norm in Venice. The hotel staff are smashing, nothing is too much trouble,...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.
