We were originally booked into the 3* annex of this property (Can' Marinella) but on our arrival were told we were being upgraded to a room in the hotel itself.
The room we were assigned was Room 500 which was spacious and clean. The bathroom...More
Venice is a city where roads are replaced by canals and the transport is boats. So you have to walk from the water bus stops to your hotel. So when we finally reached hotel Santa Marina after a walk from the Rialto bridge(the distance is...More
Me and my mum went to Santa marina recently for a weekend break away. Hotel was in a fantastic location and so close to all the attractions. We got lost so many times, we used google maps to find out way around constantly. It’s like...More
Venice is a magical place and as we were celebrating a special birthday my comments have been moderated. The hotel is not 4 star but is a traditional type place with a nice ambience and very clean. . The welcome at reception was lukewarm but...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.

On the plane we bought a ticket which took you from the airport to Venice. These can also be purchased outside the airport. This is around a 20 min journey and will take you along their motorway. This ticket was €7.50 pp. When we arrived in Venice where there is no longer any cars, we purchased a water boat ticket at €7.50 as well, which took you along the canal. To got to the hotel, you need to get off at the Rialto stop, which it is a 5 minute walk from there. Took us longer as we got lost, but you can use google maps to help you get there. Venice is a beautiful city, but like a maze!

The vaporetta run a N ( night) service. You can find details online. You get off at the Rialto bridge. The hotel is a 10 minute stroll from there ( you do have to lug your suitcases up and down a few bridges over the canals!) we did it and it's not difficult. The Vaporetta are enormously cheaper than a water taxi. Depends on your budget I guess. Hope this helps.
