Though there are a great many high-end hotels in Castello, it is also possible to find more affordable accommodation. Castello is named after San Pietro di Castello, an island on the eastern edge of this cluster. This island was the site of a castle from roughly the 6th century, which led to the name.
Castello is comprised of several islands and is the largest of Venice’s six districts. The site of a naval dockyard in the east encouraged the development of settlements around this district, which is now as densely populated as the rest of the Venetian islands.
Palazzo Vitturi and Casa Verardo are both three-star hotels in Castello that are highly reviewed and are set in attractive properties. At the other end of the scale, Hotel Santa Marina and Hotel Ai Due Principi are luxurious, five star hotels that offer the highest level of service and amenities.
Somewhere in the middle of Castello’s accommodation options, Hotel al Piave and Hotel Scandinavia are both three-star hotels within easy reach of the city’s major attractions. There’s plenty of character in the hotels of Costello – if this is what you’re after, try the marbled floors and oriental carpets of Hotel Locanda Vivaldi or the pleasant garden of Hotel Canal Venice.
Staying in Castello you are well located for access to the city’s most popular attractions such as Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge, and you will be at a safe distance from the heavy tourist traffic. Castello has its own popular attractions to browse whilst you are here. These include the Scuola di San Marco, Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni, and several churches such as the church of San Giorgio dei Greci.
