We stayed for two days in August 2013. Beautiful small hotel with exceptional staff and a great spot for breakfast with three small tables on a pontoon actually on the Canal. The Hotel is on the opposite side of the Canal towards San Marco from the railway station - in fact so close a taxi boat refused to take us there! The only thing to watch if you want a Canal view is that we were given the Casanova room (yes I know) which does have a view but from a rather small window rather than beautiful French windows. That said they charge less for the Casanova room and it is higher up quiet. I you want a beautiful view to contemplate then go for a room on the second floor or a suite on the first (but check with the bank manager first).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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"!! ... more less
