Travelers' Choice
Canal Grande is a charming boutique hotel located in Ca' Polacco, an elegant little palace which has just been restored. The furniture of the hotel is characterised by the elegance of Rococo style, typical of 18th century Venice. The lobby with its rose marble fireplace, the breakfast room with its golden mirrors, and the bar with its Venetian red velvet armchairs overlook the Grand Canal and are the best places where to begin and end a day! The small terrace on the Grand Canal gives our Guests the possibility to have a drink in a special setting and to "breathe the air of the canal"!!

Located very near the train station, right on the Grand Canal, this was a great place to stay. There were several close bus stops to choose from when traveling around, so even though the hotel is a bit far from the St. Marks area, it was easy to get around. It's in a quiet area with lots of good local restaurants/bars, so there were plenty of options to choose from. The hotel made restaurant reservations and even booked a restaurant for us for our Anniversary. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a romantic stay in this hotel. The crew was very friendly and competent. The breakfast was also very good and in time of COVID-19 perfect organized! The view to Canale Grande with the different boats in traffic was very impressive.

Chose this hotel for its rooms decoration. Once the choice was made had a look at the review and they were very positive so went ahead with the booking. After having booked I had a few logistical question and queried them by mail and got a quick reply, that for me is important as it shows they do care about their costumers. On arrival we were not disappointed and had a very pleasant welcome and a wonderful stay. I would recommend this hotel, no hesitation. Look for the room named Rosalba Carrira. It is very luminous and has a great view.. Enjoy your stay in Venice

Our stay at Hotel Canal Grande was very enjoyable. The room was well suited to our needs and the staff was always friendly and forthcoming. Having breakfast on the canal grande was the definitive highlight. There is a well defined COVID plan in place (sth. not available in all hotels we travelled to).
