I found this apartment/ hotel perfect for a relatively long stay in Venice (12 days). Though an easy walk to the Arsenale (and the Bienalle de Arte), and to the San Zacaria and San Marco areas, the neighborhood itself is very quiet, residential and friendly....More
We were fortunate enough to spend 5 days in Venice staying at the Palazzo - what a gorgeous place! It truly is stunning.
We had a room which overlooked the canal and church bells chimed each morning to awaken us. There was a concert being...More
Celebrated a significant birthday here and wasn't disappointed. The hotel staff were very friendly and obliging . They arranged transfers, booked restaurants and delivered Prosecco as requested by my family in the UK and much more. We found the apartment cool and comfortable, the breakfasts...More
Stayed 3 nights in this hotel with my daughter on a girly trip and simply can't fault it. It's slightly off the beaten track but so convenient for the airport (10 min simple walk to Ospidale water bus stop), and St Marks Square. Quite simply,...More
I've traveled the world but I never had such a fine time in a hotel. The pace is beautiful. The staff and manger were the kindest, most informed I ever met. They make you feel like family. The Palazzo is impeccably clean. The big bathtubs...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.
