“Great location, elegant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

After traveling for many hours via car, plane, train...we were very pleased to land at this lovely hotel, steps from the Santa Lucia train station.

Formally decorated, our sublimely quiet room had two bathrooms, a sitting room, a canopy bed, and a flat screen tv. Breakfast was included in our rate.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, even providing free water taxi service to Murano. And yes, we were then expected to visit the factoria and showroom where they made glass, but not an unpleasant scenario.

This is by no means the least expensive option in Venice, but it certainly was an oasis of elegance and service.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights when proposing to my now wife! The hotel is in a great location - you think it may not be central enough but it is perfect, near transport routes in, and walkable to everywhere within 5 mins - and you want to walk around venice and the side straights - as well as the water taxis, which is right on the hotels doorstep.

Lovely looking hotel, new but chic and very venice - so pleased it is getting great ratings - great staff and perfect place - and not too expensive compared to others. Stay here!!!

We stayed here for 4 nights in late September. The hotel was easy enough to find when we arrived in Venice. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed. Everything was made very clear to us and we were shortly being shown around our very well appointed (if a bit small) suite.

Location wise - its not bad - but has relatively easy access to the main water bus stops heading in both directions.

Our room was towards the back away from the Canal itself - which can be extremely noisy at all ours of the night - so worth bearing this in mind!!

The entire hotel was very clean and pleasant and for us the staff were the clear highlight!

Room Tip: Don't book one with a canal view unless you like the noise!

Stayed at this hotel for six nights. Absolutely enjoyed every minute of our time in Venice; this hotel was one of the reasons. Not far from the train and bus station (if that's how you come to Venice -- we came by plane), it is within walking distance of most of the major attractions. Staff were pleasant, helpful and courteous; we ate at four of their recommended restaurants and were not disappointed. Staff even helped us print our boarding passes the day before we left. Room was well appointed; service was great; included continental breakfast was -- well -- included. All in all, a wonderful hotel if you're looking for first class lodging in Venice.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Canal are more expensive; rooms overlooking the campo not as pricey.

At Hotel Canal Grande, we opted for a prestige junior suite. It was a lovely room with a sitting area, a bit tight for space in parts because of the period furnishings, and overlooked the laneways. It did not have a view of the Grande Canal, which we knew when we booked, and as a consequence it was very quiet and peaceful. All in all, we were very happy with the junior suite. On arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Giovana; the welcome could not have been better. All the staff here are marvellous. A couple of suggestions were made for restaurants for dinner; we tried the first one and did not eat anywhere else for the 6 nights we were there. The alla Ferrata was just so wonderful. Excellent food, very good wine, lovely staff, and owner and chef who treated us like family; and all at very reasonable prices. Three minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel and this restaurant just made us want to come back and soon! The breakfasts at the Canal Grande are not fancy but quite adequate; they have limited space. There is enough of everything you need for breakfast and the main waiter and staff are excellent. The breakfast included in the room rate is cold: eggs, ham, salad, plus all the trimmings; if you want a hot cooked breakfast, it is a few extra Euros a la carte (but really not necessary). The coffees are excellent. A bonus is the little outside balcony on the Canal; breakfast out there on a nice day was precious. Also good for a drink after a weary day; we would sit out and relax with a drink from the bar. Needless to say, the barman was also excellent. We would not stay anywhere else in Venice. We will be back.

Room Tip: Prestige Junior suite if you want quiet and not a canal view

We had a recent visit to Venice and enjoyed our stay at Hotel Canal Grande. The location is perfect, right across from the train station. If you have heavy luggage pay for a porter to help you get it to the hotel as the bridge over the canal has no ramp just a lot of stairs. If you get a chance spend time on the balcony and watch Venice float by. The staff at the hotel was very helpful with suggestions, maps and directions. Our room was small but well appointed and comfortable.

We visited the Hotel Canal Grande in late August. We were taking our adult children to Italy as a gift to them and us.The hotel service was excellent from reservations to departure. Our daughter became engaged there and so this hotel will be a lovely memory for many years. We sat outside on the little balcony late in to our first night. It was quiet and romantic and so relaxing after our long flight. The rooms were lovely. Really it was a wonderful hotel and we would return.
