The hotel is about a 12 minute walk from the main sights of Venice like St. Mark’s Square or the Rialto Bridge. Its location allows short walks and allows you to stay and sleep in a quiet, non-touristy area of the city: the Castello district.

In the hotel’s neighbourhood there is an affordable grocery store. In a few minute’s walk you can see the San Giovanni and Paolo Church, ancient basilica, remarkable building of the gothic age. Outside of the church is located the outstanding equestrian monument dedicated to Venice commander Bartolomeo Colleoni, the work of Florentine sculptor Andrea Verrocchio (1481-1488). In the same square you can admire the façade of the Great School of San Marco, completed in 1495 (Renaissance style) by a project of the architect Mauro Codussi.

Then you may pass through the crowded Calle Lunga, at the end of the alley is located the exciting Santa Maria Formosa Square with the omonym church. Inside, the classic music lovers can attend in the evening to concerts.
