Great location across the central station and close by the bus station. On the roof you have a very nice of the city and the Grand Canal. Very nice and friendly personnel make the difference. Food is very good.

Water Taxi from the airport will take you to the door (1100 euros) Bus or Taxi will leave you with a walk to the Hotel from the bus station. Would recommend this hotel good position with water bus...

I did enjoy my stay here the place is right on the canal and it has a great bathroom with a full size tub. However it is a very expensive hotel and I booked it as a treat for my last few nights in Italy, and I was disappointed with a few things. First off it states that it has... More

I stayed here with my family in May 2014, for a night whilst we explored Italy. The views and the lobby were lovely, so my expectations were high! The room itself was awful, very small and the decor was so old fashioned! Bathroom was small and it didn't make me even want to have a shower. Staff were friendly and... More

My wife and I stayed here during our last stop on our Italian honeymoon, and it was a great home base for us in Venice. Due to its location right on the Grand Canal, you are about a 20-25 minute walk to the Rialto, Piazza San Marco, and all of the Venetian hot spots. It is also located directly across... More

Rooms are stuffy and the bathroom showers are designed to get water all over the floor, despite shower curtains. We had to suffer a very noisy air conditioning vent in the corridor outside our room, and unfortunately the corridors carry the noise of peoples voices a long way! We had to change rooms as the vent noise didn't allow us... More

Loved our stay at Hotel Carlton. Located just across the canal from train station & vapparetto stop. Breakfast was great. Only downside was not-so-great wifi. Stayed in a 3 person room which was plenty spacious for 3 people. I stayed on the single bed which was not a cot but a regular single bed.

This hotel was the first stop on our 3 week trip of Italy. I have nothing but good things to say about this place. The staff was great, it was centrally located to many great things to see. There is an ATM just outside hotel front door, the Barefoot Bridge is just down the street, which leads to St. Lucy's... More

This hotel was okay--not sure how it compares with others in Venice. It is on the Grand Canal across from the train station--the good news is you don't have to take the Vaporetto to check in but the bad news is you have to carry your suitcase over a big bridge. It's at one extreme end of the island and... More

Lovely hotel with the sweetest decor but small room. We had 3 people staying in a double room with a fold up bed added. Very tight. Overlooking the water and close to many shops & sights. About 40 min walk to st marks square if you don't get lost! Wifi worked better in the lobby. Lovely breakfast with lots of... More
