“Incredible, Wonderful, Fantastic....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

OK, so we did splurge a little in this romantic city and booked the Carnival Palace Hotel. WOW. The place was incredible. The room we had was by far the best one on our entire 3 week, 7 city tour, although Hotel Grand Royal in Sorrento was possibly tied for first place.

This hotel was wonderful. Large suites, great canal view, but so quiet and peaceful. Water Bus stop (Tre Archi) about 50 feet away. Easy to walk into the pedestrian areas between the train station and St Marks, but hardly anyone walks this way so it is quiet unless you want to walk a few hundred yards and join the masses coming over the bridge from the train station.

We absolutely loved this place. The breakfast also was one of our best of the trip, but the best still was Hotel Manfredi in Rome for that honor.

Room Tip: We had a balcony room overlooking the canal, #119. Not sure if we paid a premium for this room but...

This was a wonderful hotel with an exceptional staff who helped with all of our activities while we were there. The breakfast provided was lovely including the cappuccino. The rooms were clean and well sized for the area. It is away from the center of everything and quiet at night. We loved it and would not hesitate to stay again.

Fantastic modern hotel which caters for visitors of Venice with a massive buffet breakfast so that there is no need for lunch. The rooms are very comfortable as they have superb beds and onsuite showers, which invite you to go in just for the changing lights! Amazing corridors very black with blue lights! A feeling of going in a tunnel! but exciting! It is very quiet as the Cannaregio is not in the central part of the busy city. Just fabulous worth the money!

Room Tip: Any room seem to be very good and there is no noise when we stayed there, but it might be noisy in t...

Wonderful hotel with great hotel staff. Not in the middle of all the tourist stops but a short walk away. You can take the ferry from the airport to the Guglie stop and a 5 minute walk from station. Would stay there again.

We spent 3 nights at the Carnival Palace Hotel and it was a delightful experience. Our room was very tastefully decorated and the bathroom very luxurious. The hotel was exceptionally clean and the staff could have not been more helpful. The position of the hotel was quite a walk from main attraction of San Marco but this was not detrimental to our trip in any way as it gave you the opportunity to walk or take the water bus which you could catch just outside. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering a trip to Venice and when we return to see this wonderful city we will have no hesitation in staying at the Carnival Palace hotel again.

The hotel is a little way from the busy center and San Marco, but gives you the opportunity to explore by foot. If you don't want to walk, then there is a water bus stop right outside to take you there.

Decided to splash out and book a suite overlooking the canal and wasn't disappointed. From the four poster bed to his and her sinks, the room provided all the luxury we needed. With a hot buffet breakfast served every morning it gave us the start we needed for the day exploring the city.

Staff were very friendly and on hand to help when needed.

All in all a fully enjoyable stay and recommend if you want to be a little extravagant once in a while!

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the canal

we stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. not very far from the train station and there are two water bus stop seconds away from the hotel. we were blown away by the beautiful decor and cleaness of the room, especially the bathroom! however, after we settled down, the free internet is too slow (enough for browsing info only, not for downloading image or video), guess you can't rely on free stuff! the staff are nice but certain things in breakfast are waaaayyyyy too salty!
