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.

Hotel Castello was exceptional. Great location, friendly and helpful staff, spotless rooms, and (unusual for Europe) spacious bathrooms. Castello could not have been better.

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.

The Castello has to be just about the best value for your money in probably the most expensive city in Europe. The rooms are on the smaller side and like everywhere else in Venice the building is old. The rooms are very clean and the bathrooms are decent. The hotel staff is friendly and more then willing to help. The hotel is the closest you will get to St. Marks Square without paying the big bucks for staying on the waterfront. It is about two blocks and a bridge away from the square (about 3 minutes). Totally worth it. Venice is beautiful.

With reference to my previous

With reference to my previous rating, subsequent to that, I need to add that the staff DID then try hard and managed to find my luggage, and somehow, after some luck and co operation, I got it back after just over 2 weeks. While this did nothing to make up for the discomfort of the night, at least the effort to trace and return was made.

Room was decent size with good

Room was decent size with good facilities. Location was good and was only about 3 mins walk to St Mark's Square and Ferry Stop. They have 2 buildings and it felt a bit strange staying at another building which looks like a residential building. Breakfast was ok. Still recommend it.

Great Location

The location is excellent since it is only steps away from St. Mark's Square. The room was nice, but the temperature control didn't seem to work. The bathroom was in decent shape, but the shower door had been removed and replaced with a curtain. This caused water to leak out onto the floor and caused the curtain to "attack" me while I was showering. The staff was very nice and the breakfast was great. I would stay again, but would prefer if they fixed the shower and thermostat.

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.
