Good location, hotel fine but nothing special.

, Spain

Right on the Grand Canal the hotel could not have been better located for us arriving by train. Whilst perfectly OK there was nothing particularly special about the hotel given it's prices and rating. Reception staff were not particularly friendly or helpful and the same sort of attitude did seem to be around the rest of the hotel although a couple of the waiters were very good.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Location and convenience.

Great location, pricey but worth it overall

, Birmingham, UK

We stayed with friends for 4 nights in a standard room. The room was small but nicely decorated, characterful and clean. We were on the 3rd floor and the noise from the roof terrace at night was a nuisance until it stopped at 11.30. The restaurant food was high standard but quite pricey. Otherwise the hotel was excellent. Good breakfast selection including bacon and eggs. The staff were friendly and efficient. Would definitely consider staying here again but would ask for a room on lower floor.

Great stay

, dorset

Had a wonderful time here. The room had real character, staff all friendly and helpful and excellent food. Location is ideal, right on Grand Canal - we had a room at the back, which was for the best as very quiet. A beautiful building, and the rooms were comfortable but still felt traditional. The restaurant staff were especially kind and friendly, and went out of their way to look after you. Would definitely stay again.

Relaxing and Pleasant Stay

, Cambridge

Carlton on the Grand Canal is a beautiful, typically Venetian hotel with beautiful rooms laid out with tapestry walls and glass chandeliers. It is well worth upgrading to at least a superior room here, ideally with a Grand Canal View. The hotel is perfectly located opposite the train station, near to the bus stop. These are the two main routes into Venice and being close by means you don't have to haul luggage across the city. A comfortable 4 star escape at a reasonable price for Venice. The hotel offer a complimentary taxi and tour of the nearby Murano glass factory and staff helped point out some of the secrets of Venice on check in. Breakfast is buffet style but very generous with lots of selection. Reception rooms are light and airy with a downstairs bar and a beautiful "sky lounge" (rooftop terrace) to sit and enjoy the Venetian sunset. A lovely stay and I am sure we will go back some time soon.

Nice hotel!!

, London

Nice hotel right at the start of the grand canal !! Room was a little small but not really a great problem for me or the misses, come out the hotel and do a right turn and cross the first bridge u come across and your right involved in the high st !!!

Beautiful city but like every place we go it seems to be the people u meet along the way!!!

Not MY Idea Of 4 Star Serives

, Drimnagh

Receptionist on Checking in was the most inanimate person i have ever come across. Not even a smile. Room was very clean but dated and not 4 star quality. Breakfast was standard.breakfast staff very friendly and helpful, might be an idea to move one of them to reception. only stayed here one night as a treat, as we spent the week in Marcon. other hotel so much better but to far out.

The best thing about my stay was ...

close to everything

Good location, comfortable, really friendly staff

, St Albans

Hotel was lovely, in a great location near to the main bus station from the airport, easy access to the boats which take you all over Venice, Hotel staff were very friendly, breakfasts were yummy! rooms were substantial, the only disappointment was that we booked a double room but ended up with a double bed which actually was 2 single beds pushed together which isn't ideal but didn't ruin the whole experience, just double check when you book if it states 'double/twin'. I loved Venice and cannot wait to go back again sometime to explore more :)

My boyfriend proposed to me whilst in Venice it was very romantic! :)

Grand Canal and Grand positioning

Great position right on the canal, opposite the rail station and vaporetta stop. Staff friendly and welcoming. Excellent choice of breakfast to start the day. Pleasant room with all working amenities. Would definately stay again.

Location

8/10 Great

Excellent! Worth paying to stay in a 4star, location very central!

, Birmingham, UK

Overlooks the grand canal, views are awesome in Venice. Hotel is fab, we stayed in a triple so no view but location superb! Restaurants and plenty to see on the doorstep. Would stay here again but with canal view. St Marks Square is no more than 15min in taxi boat. Buy a taxi bus ticket on the day of arrival, better value Visit Rialto Bridge which is 15min walk from hotel Stay was awesome all in all.

Great Hotel and fab location.

After the initial the mistake the hotel made in missing our booking we were eventually given the keys to a room they had free. The room was a good size, clean and had a Venetian look. The breakfast was fantastic!

Hotel Carlton & Grand Canal

, South Yorkshire

We stayed at the hotel end of May 2008 and have mixed views on the hotel. The hotel is in a good location - a 5 minute walk from where the bus drops you off from the airport and their is a boat bus pick up point just opposite. The room we stayed in had a Grand Canal view which was lovely but too noisy really. The room itself was quite small but clean and it could've done with updating. The hotel entrance is grand and the staff are very helpful. Breakfast's are fine and there's plenty of choice to get you going. I'm not sure I would stay there again if I went back but I would recommend you to have a room not overlooking the canal so you get a good night's sleep!

Hotel Carlton & Grand Hotel

, Jersey, Channel Islands

Hotel staff polite, helpful and efficient. Hotel in good canalside location. Breakfast buffet adequate but unvaried and unimaginative. Room very disappointing. Having paid supplement for canal view de luxe room we found decor rather dark and dismal, room was only of average double size, virtually no drawer space and small inadequate hanging space. Glass door to ensuite bathroom not ideal. Air conditioning not operative. In all not the comfort expected of de luxe accommodation.

This is a copy of a review writen in 2006 and it says all i have to say as well .If you are travelling to Venice by car or train the location of this hotel is excellent. The hotel was for Italy, a good quality four star hotel. Our room was a good size, clean, nicely decorated and furnished in traditional style. I would suggest that you do not take a room at the front of the hotel, although the view is excellent (over looking the Grand Canal) it is also very noisy 24 hours a day. All the reception staff were very helpful and spoke good english.I would strongly advise that you ask at reception for suggestions, when looking for somewhere to dine out in the evenings. Breakfast was continental style with a good selection which surprisingly included bacon and eggs. From the hotel by foot it was easy to find all the main attractions of Venice, everywhere was well sign posted. Alternatively the water bus stop was less than 5 minutes walk away from the hotel.I would not have any hesitation in going back to this hotel for a second stay.
