Excellent location, just a few steps from all the main historical sites such as the Dogi Palace, the Bridge of sighs, and San Marco square with its stunning Basilica. The hotel can assign some lovely rooms located 10 metres away from the main entrance but which benefit from the same style, treatment and facilities of the rooms in the main building. CQ 06/11 This is a traditional building dating back to the 16th century, converted in hotel since the beginning of the 1900s. The hotel offers its guests a welcome in the splendid artistic and historical center of Venice, just a few steps away from San Marco Square, close to Ponte dei Sospiri and the Palazzo Ducale. Easy to reach by Boat or Taxi craft in a few minutes, through the wonderful view of the ancient Palazzi, mirroring on the Venice lagoon on both sides of the Canal Grande.

TIRED AND DATED

REQUESTED LOWER FLOOR ROOM VIA E-MAIL DUE TO MY WIFE HAVING A SLIGHT DISABILITY AND THIS WAS PROVIDED. THE OTHER ROOM WAS FURTHER DOWN A DIRTY ALLEY USED AS A URINAL AND FREQUENTED BY BEGGARS WHO SAT OUTSIDE THE ENTRANCE EATING THEIR PIZZA. BOTH ROOMS NEEDED A MAKEOVER TO REMOVE THE BLOODY REMAINS OF DEAD MOSQUITOS. ALTHOUGH THERE IS A BAR IF YOU WANT TO USE IT IN THE EVENING THE DUTY MANAGER HAS TO CLEAR TABLES DUE TO THEM ALREADY BEING LAID OUT FOR BREAKFAST AND THIS DID NOT ALWAYS GO DOWN VERY WELL. BREAKFAST STAFF WERE VERY HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY BUT WE WOULD NOT RETURN.

Solid Venetian hotel

The location was super-convenient and the staff was attentive and polite. There was a complementary breakfast, which was simple and clean. Internet access charge was reasonable. The major downside was the size of the rooms; they were cramped. We did not experience any smells that others have commented upon.

Just a walk away!

Hotel Castello is centrally located by St. Mark's Square and a quick walk to the Grand Canal to catch the vaporetto. The rooms are comfortable and small, the continental breakfast delightful and the staff very helpful. Most of the staff speak english well. The only thing I would change is to turn the pre-set air conditioning a little cooler in the summer! There are a lot of excellent restaurants close by as well.

In the heart of Venice

Hotel Castello is a lovely little hotel off of St. Mark's Square that is centrally located. Most of the staff speak english and the dining and sitting areas are lovely as well as the continental breakfast. The rooms are smallish and the air conditioning is pre-set and was a little warm for me. The bathroom had a great shower so I guess there is a trade off! I would recommend it because of the location and the great caring staff.

TOO EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT YOU GET

The best feature of this hotel was that it was located within walking distance of St. Mark's square. The room we had was supposed to accomodate 4 adults but it was very crowded.
