Excellent little find

Really nice hospitable hotel, great service and ambiance. Rooms a little dated, but spotlessly clean and serviced with fresh linen every day. Take up the breakfast offer as really good choices, and take your afternoon tea in the lounge or in the front overlooking the canal.

Good location, hotel fine but nothing special.

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

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.

The best thing about my stay was...

Location excellent, directly opposite the water bus stop

Great stay

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

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!!

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 !!!

The best thing about my stay was...

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

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

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 :)

The best thing about my stay was...

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