Restored 18th century palace honors Venice greats on the Grand Canal
Stay with Doge, Casanova, Vivaldi and other Venice greats at the Canal Grande Hotel Venice, an elegant 18th century palace on the Grand Canal. Recently restored, the hotel’s rooms are each inspired by some of Venice’s most famous people or places and are richly decorated in Rococo style.

Decent Hotel - Convienant Location - Friendly Staff

Pros: This hotel is quiet, the staff was very nice and made us feel at home throughout our stay. The breakfast was good, typical European breakfast. I really enjoyed the chocolate croissants. The location was perfect, about a five minute easy walk from the train station. There are two bridges you will have to cross with steps so if you didn't travel lightly it might be a bit of a challenge with the bridges. There is a bar and even light snacks of ham & cheese sandwiches they left out for guests, nice touch! Mosquitoes were an issue for me, the desk had complimentary repellant wipes. Cons: The room was average, they give you a key card that has probably been used 50 times or more... which was strange. The bed was surprisingly comfortable, the finishes are traditional okd school Italian. I prefer places with white linen duvets over quilted comforters with dated print. The lightuhg & furniture was dated. The bathroom was updated, which was a pleasant surprise, however the shower was very small in depth. It was difficult to take a shower without touching the glass. I'm a pretty slim person, it would be difficult for someone of larger size & stature to comfortably shower.

Beautifully appointed on the canal

Warm, friendly hotel in a prime location on the canal. Staff extremely helpful. Due to local celebration the cost was high, but not overwhelming as it can be in Venice.

Just what you would expect

The hotel is situated as convient as you could get and still be away from the crowds that are attracted to the old city. It is better than you might expect from the brand name, nicely appointed, exceptionally clean, helpful and efficient staff. Substantial buffet breakfast.

Great Stay at Canal Grande Hotel

We recently stayed one night and very much enjoyed our stay. We were greeted warmly when we arrived. It was too early for us to check-in so they held our luggage and then brought it up to our room while we were out exploring Venice. The front desk staff was excellent and offered great suggestions for local restaurants for both lunch and dinner. The suite was lovely with plenty of room for a family of four. It was very clean and the air conditioner worked perfectly on such a hot day! They offered good advice on how to return to the airport and scheduled the porter for us. The complimentary breakfast was also very good. My son left his newly purchased gold chain in the bathroom the day we left and they are mailing it to us in the US. We were so grateful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to other travelers.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

It was very easy to get to the airport using a porter who took our bags (5 euros for each bag) as we made a short walk (no more than 10 minutes) to the bus that took us directly to the airport (6 euros each). It was far cheaper than the water taxi option!

Venice in November

Close to piazza Roma , great ferry connections ... near the Ferrovia, friendly staff.. most comfortable bedding and good value .. will certainly return. It is important in Venice to not have to carry your suitcase over too many bridges.. I think from the central pizza there are only two bridges to cross (if you go the right way).

First visit to Venice and we had the perfect hotel. Close to the train station. The desk clerk said she would even send her bellman to pack our luggage. The hotel was spotless and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was ample and different each day. Service was excellent.

Wonderful place to stay in Venice

Spotless, beautiful, quaint with an outstanding staff!!! Location is fantastic as close to the train station and away from the crowded tourist area. Right on the canal. Serves a lovely breakfast with linen tablecloths. We stayed in the Cassanova room decorated in the 18th century period yet modern amenities such as flat screen tv, mini bar, wi-fi, great air conditioning and modern facilities in the bathroom. Would highly recommend!!!
