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.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.

This hotel was in a great location - quick walk to main attractions and a cute little restaurant below. We heard singing in the little square one night - it was a nice surprise. The room was beautifully decorated, traditional style and clean. The wifi was super fast so all of

Great full breakfast buffet. And it is in a central location to walk to lots of the big tourist sites like San Marco square and Rialto bridge. A little on the pricey side, with additional city tax (like all places in Venice, it seems). The room was also a bit dark, since it

After a long and exhausting walk from the train station we were pleasantly surprised to arrive at Hotel Canaletto and were immediately greeted. The staff was so courteous the whole time and assisted us up the stairs with our luggage. Our room was so beautiful and unlike anywhere

This is our second stay at Hotel Canaletto and we were not disappointed, great location, good service and good value. But by far the stand out asset for this hotel is Igor. He was fabulous to us on our last stay and we were treated to the same service this time. He is

This was my third stay at the Canaletto. Such a lovely feeling to walk into the reception to be greeted by name. I was travelling with a friend who required a gluten free diet and this was catered for without any fuss. Our room was in the wing to the left of reception and was
