Great Hotel! Great Room!

Firtst time in Venice. Hotel is across the canal from the train station which is very handy. The room was large by European standards, and very nicely decorated. Helpful staff; and the hotel was re-done 5 years ago; so everything is in great condition.

If you have to pick one restaurant to eat at in Venice, do not miss Osteria da Fiore. It is out of this world. The Black Squid with Ink is spectacular.

Value for Money

Carlton on the Grand is indeed Grand. Overlooking the famous Grand Canal, it has original features and stunning gold/cream decor, several lifts available, staff very accommodating and friendly, 5star quality. Rooms overlooking the canal are obviously more busy, courtyard rooms are quieter. If you don't have the latter, there is the added bonus of Rooftop dining overlooking the Canal on the 4th floor. Whilst they wont guarantee certain rooms, they do make an effort to accommodate. Room 452 on the 4th floor was exceptional, spacious, clean, venetian decor, bath, shower, safe and a large private roof garden to bask under the sun. The wifi only worked 2 out of the 4 days, but not a big issue, several hotspots around the hotel. The built-in blackout blinds are a bonus as they allow you to sleep uninterrupted by the bright early morning sun. Smoking is allowed in some parts of the Hotel, something Brits are not used to. Located 5mins from the bus terminal, and across the road from the train station, Gondola station, waterbus and shops. A bus from Treviso Airport costs 8 Euros, which takes 50mins. Travel light and avoid lugging heavy luggage over many of the 400 bridges in Venice. Hotel is easy to find and hard to get lost. The Venice map is hard to read, but follow the Grand Canal and you cant go wrong. Not a boys holiday destination, and little kids will struggle, so take a boat out to the lovely Lido beach for child friendly action, take a walk over to San Marco and the Basilica, but get there early, as queues are long. The Gondolas located outside the hotel are expensive, but something you just have to do, when in Rome..... Came here as a surprise 40th birthday trip for the girlfriend, she absolutely loved it. If there was no airline baggage restrictions she would have come back with several handbags. Highly recommended.

Traditional Venecian Comfort

Hotel is in great location. Quick wallk from train station. Hotel is very clean and in quiet area also close to water bus landing. Unfortunately today and yesterday the water busses were on strike so we put on many miles walking over 80% of the Island. It almost seemed like a blessing because it forced us to go out of our way and say many of the bueatiful museams and churches off he beaten path. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Only wish was that wireless was available in rooms and not mjust in the bar area. Staye here many years ago and would definately stay here again. Ciao BABY!

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Many of the shops have the same items but prices range greatly. If your not in a hurry, mark the shops where you found the goods you liked and look around for similiar items in less pupulated areas. We saved up to 70%.

3 day weekend -Oct2012

Positives: Lovely staff from concierge to porter,kitchen staff etc. Breakfast area large (has 3 rooms) and food was above average. Location is FAB! right opposite the train station - very easy to find. For those heading towards St Marks square area its a good 40mins walk navigating through narrow alleyways else take the waterbus (route 1) for 7 euros - takes roughly same time as it covers around 10 stops with scenery worthy of kodak moments - Rialto bridge, fish market, basilicas. For the Londoners out there, if you try their pizzas you'll never wanna have Pizzahut again. Negatives: The actual rooms were noticeably smaller than on website. Although has character can't stop but remind myself the tiny space. Having said that its only for sleeping so not a big worry.

You can get bargain long weekend trips to Venice travelling by BA via Gatwick airport (direct flights) for just over 200 GBP. Prepare for rain and floods but its doesnt lasts long so wont disrupt the whole day.

Carleton is pretty Grand

The hotel is close to the bus station which is very handy if you dont want to pay a fortune on transfers. Bus is easy to obtain tickets and can be picked up just outside the airport, all very easy and only 6 euros a person. The hotel is one of the best we saw during our visit the staff are very friendly and happy to help with any question. Quality of the hotel is good although a little pricey on food and drink. Our room (218) had no view but was lovely just the same only downside to tea/coffee facilities). I would definately recommend the hotel and Venice isnt as big as you first think so everything is within walking distance and we had great fun just wandering about getting lost. A great hotel in a beautiful City....Pete

If a street vendor trusts a rose or umbrella in your hand just say no if you dont want it. Haggle with the street stall guys they love it and shop around for food the prices do vary. Just enjoy an amazing City

ideal spot

Stayed with my daughter. Ideal location to start exploring from. 2 min walk from bus and train station, and just across the Grand Canal to the Vaporetti stop. The hotel was very good in every way, the only let down was soundproofing in the rooms. Would stay again.
