Residenza de l'Osmarin is in the PERFECT location in Venice! Easy walk to all of the "must do's"! Clean, comfortable and quiet on a side canal. Maria was a gracious host and gave super recommendations with directions, attractions and dining. This is a great value gem in the heart of Venice! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

From the moment I arrived (thanks to their great directions), Maria and Roberto made me feel right at home. I had the suite with a terrace for several nights and it was just perfect sitting out there with my coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. I later stayed in the flower room for a...

Great B&B, Maria our host was very helpful during our 3-night stay in Venice for restaurants and quieter areas to visit. We found our apartment very clean, air conditioned and perfectly placed to enjoy the surrounding islands. You really need to consider this place before you book into your 3 or 4 star hotel. We walked for miles and looked...

This is deservedly the number one B&B to stay in Venice. Right from the start we were made to feel at home, as if we were family friends. Maria Elizabeta, the owner, could not have been more helpful and friendly, full of advice about to where to eat and where to go, aside from the obvious main attractions. The Artist's...

This is a great place at a central location. One of the nicest locations in Venice. We stayed in the new apartment and it was very comfortable. The top floor has a nice terrace where we stayed during a previous visit to Venice. Definitely will stay here again!!

Maria Elisabetta and Rodolfo are a very charismatic young couple who run both the Osmarin and a second B&B, the Corte Antica. They rush between the two businesses and must see very little of each other! As we left our booking rather late and needed a triple accommodation, we were not able to occupy the top apartment with its roof...

I booked a 4 night stay here in May 2015 for my wifes birthday. Having read previous reviews i thought it would be best to book early as to avoid disapointment in missing out on a room as it would be half term and seemed a very popular place to stay. From the 1st Email sent Maria Elisabetta replied promtly...

We were a family of three including my 12-year-old son. First of all, I was so glad that I made a right choice. While knowing nothing about Venice, I trusted other guests on Trip Advisor and booked this b&b. When I reserved a room, it was #2 in TA ranking, but it has become #1 nowadays. I found why. The...

My husband and adult daughter spent a weekend in Venice and shared the top floor apartment described well by other reviewers. The terrace was to die for, but the attention paid to detail throughout the apartment rivaled the terrace. Maria Elisabetta and her husband have thoughtfully put themselves in their guests shoes and selected practical and decorative items that make...

We only stayed here one night, however it was perfect for us to visit Venice for two days. The location is excellent and after much deliberation of whether to stay in Venice and the prices of some hotels. We are so glad we did and chose Residenza de L'osmarin. We are a couple and teenage daughter, we had one bedroom...

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
