Check-in was a little slow, but the front desk person was nice. Kinda creepy dark but traditional reception area. We were able to check in ahead and store our luggage in another room both before and after we checked out. I agree with other reviewers, it was old and tired, but the location can't be more convenient to the train,... More

All parameters match what "booking.com" promises. Really beautiful Murano-chandeliers indoors. Furniture/decoration is old-style as they should be in historical town. Location is good, beautiful view to Grand Canal from seaside-room.

The location is excellent because is just in front of the Gran canal however we paid $453 for a night and the room in our opinion do not cost that much for what it is. The bed was comfortable, but to much dust and the shower walls was full of dark spots between the tiles and that was disgusting. Again... More

We were only at the hotel for one night but being close to the train, bus and port was a good thing. This hotel is a little old but I am not sure that many hotels in Venice are modern and fancy. The location was great as we could get from the port to the hotel fairly quickly and having... More

The lobby was hot and the receptionist had a fan when we checked in. We should have followed our instinct. This is far from a three star hotel. Our room was tiny, roughly 9 feet square. The bedspread was dirty and stained with what looked like blood spots on the back side closest to the sheets. The air conditioning which... More

Big New air conditioner installed! Our first night (mid June) was not cool enough, the very next day a crew was installing a new unit; this had been planned for awhile and we were just lucky with our timing. Excellent breakfast, with their own bakery on site. No elevator, be prepared to drag your bags upstairs. You can see the... More

Our stay at Hotel Canal in May 2014 was worth it and quite pleasant. We got a room with spectacular canal views, which was a plus. A delicious breakfast was served in the morning, which was complimentary. The place has lots of character as well. Only cons were the AC wasn't super cold in the room (not an issue if... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in May and really loved it, The location is ideal, right opposite the train station and adjacent to the bus station which made it easy to get too (if you have heavy cases I would recommend the porter service at €5 euro a case because there are a lot of steps crossing...
