I like this place very much. The room and the bathroom are clean.Because outside was raining and cold, all we need is a hot shower and Ca Formosa has hot water and warm rooms. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast was very good....More
We wanted a central hotel but in a quiet location and got exactly that! Just off a very bustling street full of great restaurants and at least one fab bar this hotel is quiet partly because it's 3 floors up. So if you can't do...More
This small but perfectly formed hotel was in a great area, near to the sights, but far enough away not to be busy. There were some lovely restaurants nearby and they were reasonably priced in comparison to many others. The hotel was spotless and comfortable...More
We recently stayed here in the triple room which had a view of the canal. Large room with en suite bathroom which was extremely clean and well maintained. Hotel is centrally located near to both San Marco Square and Rialto Bridge. Communication before the stay...More
A very pleasant experience, lovely friendly staff, clean room and decent breakfast - for a very moderate price I really could not have wished for much more. The hotel is quite close to St. Mark's Square, maybe 5-7 mins walk. Will definitely stay there again.
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.
