Very good value for money in a great location on the island; you can get there on foot with Google Maps from Santa Lucía train station, which we did. Nevertheless, it’ll take you about 45 mins. If you travel light (one small bag to pull),...More
We got back this afternoon from staying at this hotel after a two night city break in Venice. The hotel cost us approx £80 for two nights, considering it was just somewhere to get our heads down and we didn’t spend that long in the...More
Response from NE_PAD, Direttore at Locanda SS. Giovanni e PaoloResponded 14 January 2018
Situated in one of the quaint alleys of Venice away from the hussle and bustle, the hotel is a good option for a short stay. We stayed only for a night. It is about a 40 minute walk from the train station, 15 minutes to...More
Let me start with the bad: this hotel, which I have never seen done anywhere else except for at hostels, the Locanda charges a fee of 2.50 Euros per person, per night, for towels and blankets. Yet, when there was blood on one of our...More
I found the hotel really cheep and it was even better than i thought. The bathroom was clean and the bed was comfy. The location was excellent. The heating in to room insane... constant heating and we are not used to it so it was...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.

we booked a room for two adults which was on the top floor; there are no lifts & the people who book you in will not help. However we did have a good sized bathroom to ourselves. They supply liquid soap which doesn't smell very good. I suggest either take your own soap. An adequate breakfast is available for about 5 Euros each which is worthwhile. The B&B is quite central. Please ask about a fire escape; no one mentioned this to us & in retrospect I was worried about others. Good luck and enjoy yoyr stay in Venice, there is much to see. regards Judith
