perfect location

Couldnt have picked a better hotel for location,friendliness, cleanliness & great value also had a roof top terrace bar - breakfast was superb & served up till 10.30 each morning - only downside was the hairdryer in bathroom - not user friendly at all - pack yr own travel hairdryer, but couldnt fault anything else - will definitely return to this hotel.

THIS HOTEL HAS SEWER PROBLEMS AND THE DAY THAT WE ARRIVE THEY HAVE SEWER WATER ALL OVER THE LOBBY AREA AND THE SMELL WAS PRETTY NASTY, THE ROOMS' CARPET IS NOT CLEAN AND THE BATHROOMS SMELL PRETTY BAD AT NIGHT. THE STAFF IS NOT FRIENDLY AND THEY DID NOT HELP US WITH THE PARKING ISSUE, WE END UP PAYING 29 EUROS PER DAY AT A PARKING LOT

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.

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

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.

Not as per pictures

Good hotel overal; location is great if you dont mind the walk to the tourist attractions. The rooms are fine - clean, comfortable, avg decor. But they are not as good as those shown in the pictures!

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%.

good choice

It is a very nice hotel with excellent location sitting by the Grand Canal. It is easy to come and go by the train just across the canal. The boat taxi is within short walk across the bridge. We were there for a couple of nights and the room size is OK with us as we were in a triple room. Breakfast is good. Free Wi-Fi is available in the bar area. However, it is bit too expensive.
