Reasonably happy with out stay at Hotel Castello. The decor is dated to the point of quirkiness (e.g. material wall paper) but our room was clean. No cooling due to local laws and it was warm. Had to unplug the fridge to use a power...More
Booked a weekend break on a budget and was so glad I got this hotel. If you need to hit the ground running due to time constraints, this location is a great base. Have read reviews saying it's awful, each to their own but what...More
We came to stay for three nights because it's centrally located (on reflection everywhere in Venice centrally located). Room 103 was very small and located in a different building to the "main" hotel, si when it's raining you will get very wet to have a...More
The hotel is tucked around a corner and easy to miss. Once you get used to the area it is in a fantastic location for Saint Marks Square, Rialto Bridge and San Zaccaria and the waterfront. We were in room 127 which was up 5...More
Hotel was clean, breakfast was poor, walls are very thin could hear conversation going on in next room. Staff was ok and friendly, no facilities in room to make a drink, only good thing was the location.
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.
