I totally agree with the comments from others about getting what you pay for. This is a budget hotel and we had 2 night pre cruise, with kids and did not want to spend a fortune. Rooms were clean tidy and air-con worked well. Location is great and staff very helpful. Breakfast was basic, but did the job. we got... More

We were travelling around Italy via trains in August 2014 with our kids . We stayed in the Canaletto for two nights. We were on a budget because we had a number of hotels booked during our trip but found the Canaletto to be one of our favourites . It had a great feel with character and charm. The reception... More

Be prepared to get lost…in a fun way…and you will love Venice. The rooms were a bit tired but clean and the location was great. We were right in between Ponte Rialto and Piazza san Marco. The hotel staff was very nice and had a great sense of humour. All up a lovely place to stay. http://tourdeitalia.tumblr.com/post/80696472066/venice-many-have-written-of-the-beauty-but-who http://tourdeitalia.tumblr.com/

Someone said its terrible but how much have you paid? It's clearly stated as a three star not five or six stars. Hence for the price, it's a reasonable hotel for stay. It's has helpful staff explain to you the way clearly. The air con works fine the buffet breakfast is prepared. In conclusion if you know you've paid for... More

Wonderful Venice, terrible Canaletto! The hotel is very well located: Only a short five-minutes-walk to the Rialto-Bridge and the San-Marco-Place! But honestly - that's all. The Canaletto isn't worth more than two stars, even if you pay a five-stars-rate. There's no showergel in the bathroom, the towels seem more like dishclothes, the TV has only three italian channels, the hairdryer... More

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

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
