I usually stay in an apartment when visiting Venice in September but visiting in the low season , Dec-Feb (excluding Xmas and Valentines day) , offers a great chance for high quality hotels at B+B prices.
The Carnival Palace is situated on the Fondamenta Cannaregio 10 yards away from the Tre Archi vaporetto stop with direct boats to San Marco , and the bus and railway stations.It's adjacent to the Jewish Ghetto and is the moments walking away from the bars and restaurants frequented by locals rather than undemanding tour groups.
The hotel itself is new , modern , well appointed and has lifts .
The rooms come in various grades (I stayed in a deluxe double) and are spacious with excellent bathrooms and large and really comfortable beds.
Free wifi is available. TV watchers may be disappointed ...all 3 English language channels are news channels.
Breakfast was included and was of an American/North European style with meat, bacon, cheese, eggs etc and only a few sweet pastries rather than the usual Italian fare of cakes and more cakes. And excellent coffee.
The staff are helpful , well informed and speak good English.
I'd have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for visitors to Venice in any season.
