“Location Accomodation & Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The location is excellent, on the Grand Canal close to vaporetto stops and train station without being an intrusion, making this an ideal location for Venice. The accomodation was spectacular, with rooms that have the wow factor. To compliment this the staff were friendly and provided excellent service and were more than happy to accomodate our needs. Overall a highly recommended hotel that we would happily return to, fully justifying its prominence on trip advisor. There are plenty of restaurants and shops close by just across a near by bridge.Who ever started the comment "it is worth getting lost to find the real Venice" was so right, this is highly recommended!.

Room Tip: We had a choice of rooms, and would have been equally as happy in any.They were all to a high standa...

We just completed our second stay in this wonderful small hotel. Our room was very Venetian and directly overlooked the Grand Canal. Splendid modern bathroom and comfortable furnishings. Nice breakfast (included) in the morning which may be taken on a deck on the canal. However, the best part is the staff. They are collectively the best hotel staff I have ever met. Terrific restaurant recommendation and general travel information, amazingly friendly. A nice location away for the busy tourist hubbub but very close to two water bus stops. If you take private water taxi from the airport (or cruise terminal) you will be delivered directly to the hotel dock.

We all have visions and expectations of what our experience would be like after watching "The Tourist". My expectations were exceeded when I visited Venice and was fortunate to stay in a lovely and comfortable hotel. I was a solo traveler, my room had a twin bed decorated in Venetian style and large bathroom with marble floor, I loved overlooking the canal from the shuttered terrace.
The hotel was friendly and so close to everything for walking, shopping, dining and I even went to a local hair salon, the man was amazing, as you walked out of the hotel to the right go towards the bridge and take the street to the right of the bridge. he is on the right.

Room Tip: room facing the canal beautiful views

We stayed here for a long weekend in April.
The staff are so welcoming and the room overlooking the Grand Canal was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated.
The Hotel is situated away from the bustle of the busy areas, but within easy reach of everything you need.
Venice is a must see City and this hotel is an ideal base for a short break.
Excellent.

Room Tip: Definitely worth booking in advance to secure a room with views over the Canal.

We spent 5 nights at this hotel. Our room was very comfortable and well appointed; it was not in the main building but in a 'house' in the same square. The staff at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful and did everything they could to make our stay a pleasant experience. The accommodation added to the enjoyment of our trip. We were looking for somewhere comfortable and away from the St Mark's Square hubbub and this suited us perfectly. We would heartily recommend it.

I can not say enough about the comfort, elegance and hospitality of this small hotel on waters edge. The rooms are elegantly appointed in Venetian decor; with a shuttered terrace overlooking the Grand Canal. The bathrooms were a treat, compared to most European bathrooms...large,marble, over the top showers and heated towels and elegant toiletries etc. The hotel is very small, but the accommodations are immaculate, intimate, romantic and I felt like I was being pampered. (which is nice at my age). The staff are amazing and appear to really enjoy their work. The best hotel we stayed in in Europe. My daughter treated me to this incredible vacation in February 2010 and she sure picked a gem in this hotel ... but if I ever get to travel to Italy again, which I dream I will, without a doubt this is the hotel I will return to!

Room Tip: The two story suite is amazing, but all rooms I saw were so comfortable.

I can't fault this hotel at all. It was our first time in Venice and we booked it based on the Trip Advisor review. We were definitely not disappointed! The rooms were superbly appointed even down to the array of toiletries. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, booking trips, water taxis, giving directions and recommendations etc. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We would like to make a return trip to this lovely city and Hotel Canal Grande will definitely be our preferred choice of accomodation.
