My partner and I stayed for a couple of nights in the Scandinavia hotel. We were greeted by Elena on our arrival, she was brilliant and could speak my native language perfectly (French) or my partner's (English). All staff was very friendly. The breakfast was...More
The room was extremely small. With very thin walls. Could hear the rooms all around us. You could also hear all the people walking back from bars passing under your windows even with them closed. The bathroom was clean but again very small. No place...More
I enjoyed my time there. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. I was quite happy to get one of the rooms with a balcony, if you don't mind the stairs, it is really the best room to stay in. The room was a little...More

Spent two nights in the hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good selection of food for breakfast. Hotel a bit dated but clean. Room numbers are a bit haphazard, not consecutive. Once we got our bearings it was easy to find our way around the...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.
