I stayed here in May 2015 , the location was perfect , although a good walk to St marks square but very close to the train station . Wifi was good and room was clean but very old fashion . Breakfast buffet could vastly improve especially for the price paid per night , expensive for what you get for your... More

The Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal Venezia was in a good location, not only for water taxi and walking into the city areas but its proximity to the Venice train station and cross-canal over-bridge. Whether entering Venice via car or bus onto the people-mover or via the major rail terminal (note if you have Eurail Passes, etc.) this hotel... More

The location of the hotel is excellent. Literally 2 minute walk from the train station and 4 minutes from the bus station. It was great not to have to negotiate the crowded Venetian streets with our luggage. This hotel is not slap bang in the middle of the obvious tourist locations but for me this was a huge plus as...

We stayed here for 3 nights in May. We booked a standard double room, which was huge! I'm not sure why others are mentioning that the rooms were tiny--our room was twice the size of other rooms we had in Europe during our two weeks of traveling. The hotel was perfectly situated for arriving and leaving by train (it's a... More

A great hotel situated on the grand canal opposite the train station, the staff are very helpful especially Enrico in the restaurant on the rooftop and Marco on reception. A four star hotel with lovely views from the Skybar, beautiful rooms we will be back.

Arrived to the hotel by water taxi booked through the hotel, service was great, easy to arrange and the hotel were on hand to answer any queries with quick turnaround times. Dropped off at the hotel and it was just as imagined, very pretty and spotlessly clean. The staff were very welcoming, we were provided with lots of useful information... More

During our recent tour of Italy, we had the pleasure of staying two nights in Venice at the Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal. It was very convenient to all of the sights of Venice we wanted to see, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms suited our needs as well as the restaurant for breakfast. It was... More

This is a lovely hotel situated opposite the train station and a short walk from the bus station. The hotel is large but the staff are always on hand to assist. We originally booked a double room here in February 2015, my partner opened the wardrobe to pull out a blanket and part of the wardrobe fell off hitting her... More

I booked to stay at the Hotel Carlton for the May bank holiday weekend for my partners 30th birthday. The staff weren't very welcoming on our arrival and we were put into a tiny room in a very noisy part of the hotel. The breakfast that was included was ok, but nothing special. The location of the hotel is pretty... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
