Location is great, doesn't matter if you come with car or public transport it is easy to reach by foot. The hotel in nicely decorated, rooms are clean and well maintained. Breakfast is the usual- no more no less. Choose your room properly and don't hesitate to check abother if you don't like the first one. Some are smaller and... More

Well worth the cost to stay here. Second visit to Venice in 2 years and after searching the best location and price, Carlton was the one and only option. The location is more than perfect. We got a room overlooking the canal. The breakfast was always good. The resto on the rooftop is spectacular. Hope to go back again.

This hotel is located across the water from the train station. Our boat taxi dropped us off right in front of the hotel door. The hotel is beautiful and in a great location. I was not really crazy about the room decor, but i cant complain. The beds were comfy. Because Italians feel that this is their cold season (I... More

I read some of the reviews and was a little nervous to say the least. Please do not believe them. Think Venice and you have to think of the old fashioned Venetian Era. The hotel is like that. Opulent decoration in the entrance and restaurant. The rooms might need a slight makeover but they are not bad at all. The... More

The hotel has a very good location for late arrival as it's just in front of the St. Lucia train station. If you like the Venice style you will like the room design. The bed is comfortable, the room was clean and the bathroom was a bit old, but still clean and enough, but the standard a bit low for... More

This hotel is very easy to access no matter where you are arriving from. The train station is directly opposite, with the bus and cruise terminals in easy reach. The rooms are stylish and decorated in a traditional style. They are rather small, but very clean. My room did overlook the canal. This is a great view, but very noisy... More

As this trip was for our 25th Wedding Anniversary we decided to go romantic and book a room with a view so opted for a Junior Suite with a view of the Grand Canal and on as high a floor as possible. We got exactly that, it did look directly across to the rail station and the river bus pontoons... More

This was our second stay at this hotel. We had a room facing the Grand Canal. The view was very picturesque, and to be on the Grand Canal, not as crowded as spots closer to the Rialto bridge. Restaurants and shopping was nearby and we were within walking distance of the train station and the major port. The rooms were... More

We arrived at this hotel and were taken care of immediately. The front desk people were very helpful even to the point of telling us some of the sites we might like to see during our stay. The room was fine, it even had a tub which our Rome hotel did not. It was clean and well kept. Breakfast was... More
