We stayed at Hotel Canal Grande for our pre-cruise one night stay in Venice. We booked four rooms by booking.com, and the reviews are spot on. Service, location, price, rooms... all very good value and very good. Rooms are very clean, beautiful traditional Venetian decor, but high tech and newly renovated rooms and bathrooms. The TV is inside the mirror in our room ! Quiet rooms, and the hotel has an elevator. Breakfast included was fantastic, and their coffee was so good !
We booked water taxi for 11 of us and with ALOT of luggage, (10 pieces of check in luggage plus 5 cabin size) and we arrived in style to the entrance of the hotel. The hotel staff took all the luggage and arranged for them to be brought to our rooms in lightning speed. Check In was great.
They gave us map and directions how to walk to St Mark's square, it was a long walk for us because we had young children, but otherwise, a 30 minute walk gets you there for sure.
We ate at a nearby restaurant for dinner, and next morning, we checked out, booked a walking tour with our private guide, and then Hotel Canal Grande booked a water taxi for us to go to the cruise terminal. It was wonderful and I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again in Venice.
If you want to be more near St Mark's Square, then maybe this hotel may not be the location you want. But it is a nice hotel, and walking distance to St Mark's square, and Rialto Bridge.
