All staff we met were pleasant and efficient. Some rooms small, but comfortable enough. Bathrooms may also be very small, and in ours shower needed frequent adjustments when in use. Breakfast area generally reasonably well stocked, but no fruit and it was very cramped. Cleanliness good.

Walked to our hotel, Hotel Alla Fava. Our room was ready and the man on the desk carried our bags up the 21 steps to our first floor room. The room had a very fancy Feligan machine for hooking up electronic devices. Unfortunately none of the connections worked with our American devices, except to charge one of our cell phones.... More

Perfect location, tucked away from the hustle and bustle in a quiet area but still so close to everything including amazing gelato at Suso! Room was large and comfortable and very clean. There were limited options at breakfast but that didn't really bother us.

Although paying quite a bit for the hotel, I didn't have the highest expectations due to the pictures but being Venice obviously the prices are more than you would pay elsewhere. We stayed 3 nights and although being in an area close to restaurants and shopping areas I couldn't recommend this hotel. We were surprised to see the size (lack... More

We stayed three nights here and enjoyed our stay very much. The location is superb - between Rialto and San Marco but the square itself is very quiet. (The church in the square is beautiful).

I certainly was glad that I chose to stay right in Venice as oppose to staying in the suburbs like Mestre. This meant that, on a limited budget, you'd have to give up space for convenience.

The showers water is very temperamental, one minute its very hot, the next its cold and the pressure could be better. Wi-fi is good and the breakfast is small but they are very friendly staff. The location is pretty good and gives you a good sense of Venice and how much history there is.

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello
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.
