We had exactly the same experience as the previous reviewers in 2010 and I can only warn others NOT to book this 'accomodation'. Granted, our experience was in October 2008 but I feel our experience is relevant today as this SCAM is still cheating people...More

Firstly, I want to say that I'm only giving this place a rating of one because this system does not allow you to give zero.
I booked this apartment through Venere for a party of six friends travelling to Venice for a w'end stay.
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.
