Luxury and refined taste, discreet, qualified service distinguish this elegant 3 stars hotel which was recently described by one of the most famous Italian tourism guidebook as 'a real treasure trove of comfort and style'. The car parking in Piazzale Roma and the cruise passengers terminal and in the meantime very closed to the best known sightseeing in Venice, the Hotel 'Antica casa Carettoni' offers its guests all the comforts and service they could desire, in a very charming and relaxing atmosphere. The hotel offers its guests a wide choice of quiet bedrooms, none of which are the same, all furnished in style, with care and endowed with every comfort. Hotel "Antica casa Carettoni" provides the service and luxuries of the large hotel with the advantages of small scale management and the staff gives professional service with a personal touch. Wood pieces and fine mosaics characterize the elegant room where the fortunate guests can enjoy a rich breakfast buffet and the sincere cordiality of the staff every morning.Genuine old-style hospitality combined with modern hotel facilities: the perfect ingredients for a peacefull, relaxed stay in Venice. The hotel offers doctor on call, lobby, non-smoking rooms, reception, safe deposit box, secretarial services, tour desk and drink dispenser self services. Breakfast- included.

Good place to stay in Venice.

We stayed here in early June. It is clean, quiet, and comfort, not too cold and not too hot. It seemed the room was recently renovated. So everything was good. It was just the shower that not worked very well. The bathroom is not small, but the shower cabin is very tiny. As we are not so big, it is okay for us. I don't know how a big guy can take a shower in it. What bothered me is the showerhead which need to be hold in hand to use it. There are muliple fancy massage jets, but did not work. As we only stayed for two nights, we did not ask for help. The breakfast is good. The location is also great, very close to the train station. It is also not far from the bus station (the bus runs between the airport and Venice). However, you need to drag or lift the luggages for the steps on the bridge (there are one or two such bridges, I forgot). And as others mentioned, there is no elevator in the hotel. Again,we did not have a lot of luggages and we are young, so it is okay for us. And there is no free wifi. Overall, we were satisfied with the stay at the price we paid.

great location near trainstation santa lucia(3min), bunk bed in a very small room, dirty towels

The location of this hotel was great, the hotel looked clean and pretty ok. We had the bunkbed(it didn't look really solid)room, the room was really really small, the airconditioning made our room like a freezer(we couldn't turn it off), it was really cold in the night. The female at the bar looked helpfull, but was not helpfull at al!! We asked for a nice place to eat, and she sent us to a really really bad restaurant called trattoria S. Zullan. We only went to venice for 1 day and we wanted to eat at a nice place, but she kind of ruined it for us. So a tip is to not ask her about that stuff. We also asked her how we should go to the busstation and she just said opposit side, but is was kind of far over a bridge, so we had a hard time finding the busstation(with the luggage). She also said we could take any bus, but it wasn't like that at all, we could only take 1 bus. So her information isn't reliable! There also is no free wifi, no elevator.

Awful!

We arrived under a 100 degree weather to find a closet (however they called it a room for 2 with a public bathroom) with bunk beds (a mattress close to the floor under another one suspended by scary pipes). When we asked about the air conditioning we were told that "we keep it hot to conserve the energy of the world". The blankets were dirty and the staff pretentious to say the least. We left and found a beautiful small hotel around the corner where we had a clean air conditioned room with a private bathroom for the same price.

Find a small place at the edge of the water and eat local food. You won't regret it!

small, simple, clean room

hotel is a few hundred feet from the train station, which made getting there easy. nice walk to just about anywhere you'd want to go - venice is small enough that you can walk anywhere and everywhere. staff was nice, multilingual and welcoming. room was tiny, but functional, and most importantly, clean. windows opened out to the main street, which could get a but noisy, but nothing that you can't sleep through.

disappointed

The pictures of this hotel looked very homely and quaint, so I booked for two nights. I was disappointed from the first few minutes there. I can understand that space is limited in Venice and elevators are a luxury BUT, we were traveling with about 60 - 70 lb. trunks of luggage each and the first thing we see is a flight of stairs. It would have been nice to have a bell hop assist us up those stairs, but there isn't one. There was only one girl at the reception desk. So we had to haul our luggage up not one, but THREE flights of stairs to get to our room, and some people had rooms above us! Oh, and our room! Tiny! We didn't even have room for both of us to open our luggage, we had to take turns. Also, the hotel website says its a short walk to St. Mark's square, but not really. It's a fair walk for a young person, but if you are old, I'd say take the water taxi even though it'll take a while. It was however, very close to the train station as advertised. The biggest kicker though was their breakfast. It's only from 8 to 930, and I got there around 840, and most all the food was gone and there was no attempt to replenish any of it. Empty platters of who knows what was on there were on the bar area. I even had to clear my own table because they were all dirty and no one was cleaning up. Pretty much the only thing left to eat was a couple pastries and corn flakes. Compared to all the other included breakfasts we have had on our trip so far, this was the worst breakfast by far! I didn't even bother to wake up early the next morning for it. The cherry on top was that my husband threw his back out getting the luggage down the stairs and we still had to take trains to our next stop. Wouldn't come back to this hotel if you paid me.

Convenient hq for exploring Venice

The staff at this hotel was extremely friendly and helpful, breakfast was good, hotel was clean. Room was as advertised. Keep in mind that rooms can be noisy due to central location, also smelled of cigarettes. Can't beat location if you are arriving by train.

Great Staff

This hotel is situated on a very touristy street, near the train station- full of energy, but it's still quiet in your room at night. The building itself is rather charming, with lovely mosaics on the floors, well-placed artwork, and an antique vibe that truly envelops you. The high point though is the great staff, especially the lady who tends to work there morning to evening. She is warm, friendly, excited, and speaks great English. Breakfast is served with a smile, and after traveling nearly 3 weeks in Europe, it was far and away the best breakfast I ever had. A number of sweet confections available, as well as croissants (with a side of nutella!), slices of meat and cheese, hard-boiled egg, and a few other items. And for the price, this place is truly a winner!

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Sorry folks, but dining well in Venice isn't likely to happen. Or, it will take you a lot of time to find and then cost an arm and a leg.
