Sometimes peoples first impression is fogged by the excitement of just being some place new. We went back because our first experience was simply fantastic. Everyone nice, friendly etc... and you expect that much however they went above and beyond on the first trip. So we went back the 2nd time. In no certain order. I had a nebulizer machine... More

Hotel Carlton was a great hotel for a number of reasons! 1. Location 2. Directions 3. Breakfast 4. Decorations 5. Rooms Let's take my first reason of location.

This hotel is ideally situated at the end of the grand canal and just a few minutes walk from the bus station. You can hop on the vaporetto close by and get an outside seat before lots of people join further up stream. The communal areas are well kept and very clean. Our room (standard) was OK to sleep in,...

Myself and my partner stayed here in June 2014 for four nights and our stay was truly amazing. From the moment you walk in to the beautiful lobby you realize how lovely your stay will be. Our room was located within a court-yard which had outside seating which really added to our stay, giving us the option of sitting outside... More

We loved our experience at the Carlton's great location just in front of the train station, the price worths the cozy rooms and delicious buffet, and Andrea from the counter gives an excellent service!

If it is location you are after and can get a deal.... then consider this hotel. We stayed for three nights on a special package in a room overlooking the inner courtyard Please note the hotel is old.... as all of Venice is..... you are not staying in a modern chain hotel. Rooms are quirky, some quite small but decorated... More

We only visited this Hotel as it hosted a Grand Ball on Valentines night, we booked well in advance and as it was one of the more reasonably priced balls I really didn't expect it to be all that grand. We were in for a surprise, the hotel is well kept and faces out onto the grand canal, we were... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location, with access to all local transport. The reception area was impressive and the room we were allocated was lovely. Breakfast was great with a variety of options. Plenty to keep you going through til lunch! Staff were helpful and polite. Would definitely return.

Hotel well located and on the famous river. Everywhere in Venice looked the same to me to don't get lost (ha ha). I love the idea of a historic looking building inside and out and this hotel definitely had this. I also loved the fact too that there is no car access.
