Our room was in the second part of the hotel looking out to San Zaccaria. Decorated and furnished in Venetian style, it felt very welcoming (and clean). Beds were firm but comfortable and extra pillows and blankets were available if needed. Bathroom facilities were very good and fresh towels were provided daily. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Service for breakfast was very prompt and a good selection of food was provided. We were very close to vaporetto stops and it was lovely to step out and hear the lapping of the waters against the gondolas tied up nearby. A hotel to return to!
The hotel was a great place to stay. Comfortable, breakfast gave an extensive selection and was tasty, conveniently placed, staff are very friendly and language is not a problem. The slight drawback was the price of SOME drinks in the bar; however the ambiance within the establishment was excellent.
"Good location with easy access from the airport."
The hotel was very easy to get to from the airport. Right outside is a stop for the water bus so no hauling luggage through narrow alleys in Venice. The main hotel looks better than the annex where we stayed (around the corner down a short alley). Saturday night they must have either hosted a party on the floor below us because the music was extremely loud with heavy bass.
Bordering San Marco and the Rialto and stretching east to some of Venice's quietest greenest parts, Castello is the city's most varied 'sestiere'. Its most famous aspect is the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront next to the Bridge of Sighs, with picture-postcard views onto the lagoon. Yet a few yards from the tourist hoards, the backstreets are quiet and typically Venetian. There are many outstanding churches and art collections in this area.
