Hotel Canaletto was a quiet, authentic, clean and well located hotel. The breakfast was average and the pillows terrible but other than that it was great value for money. A little hard to find but followed directions in previous reviews which were very helpful. Vaporetta from P. Roma to Rialto around 9pm was no problem. Found the day staff incredibly... More

We stayed at the Hotel Canaletto last night following a friend's recommendation. Given previous experiences in Venice with overpriced, badly appointed hotels I wasn't expecting much so was pleasantly surprised ... The Hotel Canaletto was well priced, of a good standard (3 ***), well situated, had nice staff, good breakfast, nice aspect and great pillows! We found the Hotel easily... More

Hotel Canaletto was a pleasant little hotel in a great location between San Marco and Rialto Bridge. Our room was a reasonable size and nicely furnished in Venetian style. The bed was large and comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was OK and the staff were pleasant. There were lots of nice, reasonably priced restaurants within walking distance.restaurant

This hotel is in great location for a few days in Venice . Few minutes walk each way to Rialto and San Marco . It is getting a bit dated but it is very clean and clean towels each day a must when you can't dry anything out . Our room was very small but adequate for few days .... More

This hotel is very centrally located, once you find it! It is approximately a 15 minute walk from Rialto Bridge and St. Marks Square. Like many hotels in Venice, it is tucked away down an narrow street and is very difficult to find. I think I have a good sense of direction but it took four of us about 40... More

We stayed at Hotel Canaletto last September, 2013. It's exactly half way between St Marks Square and the Rialto Bridge. Staff was European friendly and spoke English quite well. Breakfasts were the usual for mid-range hotels in Italy. The accommodations were very comfortable if a little small. The besta thing about it is the location. Just off the 'tourist trap'... More

Hotel is in a great location, and the Venetian decor is lovely. The hotel is old and you can tell. A few things like a simple lick of paint and changing the stained chair covers would go along way, and give the hotel the more comfortable clean feel. Staff were pleasant, although the night time staff was a little unhelpful.... More

It was hard to find but what I loved about this hotel is, away from busy streets and bars. Had good selection of breakfast. Very friendly staff. probably less than 10mins walk to the square. 30mins to train station. Close to the famous bridge. Our train don't leave till evening and we were able to extend our stay at the... More

Once you find it and know you're way around, this really is in a good location. Our bathroom was a little funky with a curtain making up the shower stall, and one of our beds was certainly quite old and broken down so sleeping was not so good. The breakfasts are passable but nothing to write home about. Staff was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The hotel is situated in the heart of the romantic city of Venice, in a very quiet position just 200m from the beautiful St. Mark’s Square and the famous Rialto Bridge. It is the ideal starting point to set off through the alleys to discover the wonderful monuments and typical shops which hide all the ancient, fascinating mysteries of Venice. The hotel takes its name from the famous Venetian artist, Antonio Canal, who was known as Canaletto. The rooms where the artist used to live (1697-1768) have now become our elegant hotel rooms. A friendly, elegant, romantic and quiet atmosphere furnished in typical 18th century Venetian style, with stucco work, damask, hand lacquered and gilded furniture, Murano glass mirrors and lamps. All rooms are soundproofed and have private bathroom with shower or bath, air conditioning, telephone, Wi-Fi internet access, minibar, sat TV, hair dryer and safe. There are also our superior rooms with views of the canal or the typical square with the well-curb. The elegant public rooms (breakfast room, bar, TV room, internet point and Wi-Fi access) are all decorated with stucco work and the antique smoothed lime finish, and have some lovely reproduction of Canaletto’s works on the walls. ... more   less
