Trip to Italy

If you don't mind a little cool weather and grey sky, the best time to go is at the beginning of December. The hotel was the best bargain ever......the price was great for a luxury hotel, the location cannot be better, the staff was very nice and I will have to go back.

Convenience and Safety

The location of the hotel is just across the main train station, Venezia Santa Lucia. The bridge is a bit steep and slightly strenuous to lug a luggage across. We didn't want to roll the luggages across the steps and add injury to the already deteriorating ancient and beautiful bridges in Venice. There was no kettle in the room and no air conditioning. But the hotel's location is safe compared to those on the side of the main train station. It was a good choice for a short stay.

Enjoyed our stay along with twoe other couples. Accomodations were excellent and the orientation by the front desk in reply to our questions were very helpful.

Old World Charm right on the Grand Canal

Had a wonderful stay that the hotel. The location was at the far end of the grand Canal, but right across from the Train Station, the Port and a Water Bus Stop. Our room had a window that faced the inner courtyard of the building so the view was of nothing. The room itself was kinda old in style, but everything worked and was clean and did us just fine for a single night stay before getting on a cruise ship. The building had a nice roof top deck with full bar and food service. We had a night cap up there and it was very peaceful.

Beautiful Venice Hotel

Nice hotel near everything. Water taxi stop right in front of hotel and walking distance to shopping and restaurants. On Grand Canal.

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.

Just right

Spent 3 nights at this hotel and found it comfortable and the staff very welcoming. Great breakfast included. Perfect spot for picking up the water bus. Don't be put off by the fact that the train station is opposite on the other side of the canal, we were canal facing and didn't hear a single train.

Buy a 48/72 hr ticket for use on the water buses. Allows you to explore and make the most of your stay.
