Good Location & breakfast Normal Place

It was an Old Hotel with good Location Near railway & Ships. Good breakfast, no wifi unless pay money. It was Warm enough at nights. All together it is normal & typical hotel of venice. If you want to remain in venice & enjoy days and nights, it is good place.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Walk at the side of rail station parallel to grand canal , you 'll enjoy best locations and reach St Mark Square. Get back from another way direct toward hotel ( by GPS) you'll reach the nice main bridge and find beautiful locations it takes just 2.5 hours!

Nice view

I booked 2 rooms. Both of them face the river with pretty nice view. :) I left around 4AM in the morning, they packed breakfast for us ahead of time. They are pretty thoughtful. The shortcoming is Internet speed.

Phil from Georgia

The hotel is in a great location, within 5 minute walk from the bus station. Our room was a little smaller than expected but we were in Venice. Shops and restaurants and the Grand Canal just outside the hotel. Staff are great, and the breakfast was a good variety of European standards. The Cappuccino machine was pretty cool. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

good place to stay

It is hard to get around Venice with your luggage. If you have a lot of bags this is a great place because there is only one bridge to cross (that doesn't have a ramp) to get to the hotel from Piazzale Roma. It is right on the Grand Canal and we had two adults and two kids, the room looked out the back but still had a nice view. The included breakfast was adequate with cereals, yogurt, granola, pastries, breads with spreads, Orange and grapefruit juice, hard boiled eggs. I would recommend this place and would stay again.

Misrepresented

When we arrived late at night we were met by one staff person. With no elevator, the porter we had hired from the taxi was kind enough to carry our heavy bags up the steps. The room was not large enough for us and our bags at the same time. There was only one electrical outlet in the room and it was being used by the TV that sat on top of the tiny refrigerator. The only other outlet was next to the door in the bathroom which we ran an extention cord across the room for my cpap machine. There was no outlet in the bathroom! The bed was a 6 inch mattress on old springs just like the old roll away beds. My husband and I are not young and it was miserable. The "garden" was a small patch of grass and weeds with two small plastic tables and 4 plastic chairs. We stayed two nights and then cancelled our next seven nights even without another alternative. Thankfully we found another hotel down the canal which was much more appropriate, did not misrepresent what they were and was much less expensive.

Not great value

The price was similar as 4 star hotel. No wifi free. I did survey other hotel and their wifi was free. Breakfast time starts at 8 am . 2 days i missed breakfast because i had to go to conference earlier. They dont have excellent breakfast choice either. I dont recommend booking via internet for hotel next time as i am not happy for what i got with price that i paid.

Simple yet clean and right priced

The outside of the hotel is not the greatest, but I was surprised with how clean the room and bathroom were. The breakfast was fair and enough to get us started for the day and the staff was friendly and helpfull. I just thought it was a bit of a walk (about 35min) from the hotel to The Piazza de San Marco... that was kind of a down side for me. But on the same note, the hotel is located just across the train station and from the vaporetto stop, which is very convenient.

The human touch makes a difference

I reached Venice after 30 hours of air travel followed immediately by an overnight train ride. Needless to say, when I reached Canal hotel at 6 am Venetian time, I was bone weary. However, I had entire day of sightseeing ahead of me. The staff at the Canal hotel were super friendly. Upon explaining my situation, they were very accommodating and allowed me to check in early so that I could freshen up. The gentleman at the desk, Mr. Paolo allowed me to check in early @ 9am, although their check in time is 1pm. Moreover, since the only room that had been emptied so far was a double room, he upgraded me to a double room from my single room. When I offered to pay the difference, he refused to take my money. Lastly, since I had just arrived, and was not entitled to a free breakfast till the next day, he also allowed me to get the breakfast for 5 Euros instead of the usual 10 euros. This kind of customer service goes above and beyond what one normally sees at hotels. I would highly recommend this hotel just for its customer service.
