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

Works for me

Overall the hotel worked for us. Its right across from the railway station. Its not very fancy, its more for a budget traveler. If you are heading to Venice for an anniversary or a special occassion this is not a great hotel. The water taxi station is right across the hotel, its useful to buy a water taxi pass. We found good restaurants around the Rialto area.

Great service, Small Rooms

The hotel was pretty nice, I don't know that it deserves it's 4 star rating. The only thing the hotel really had going for it was a clerk who spoke really good English, exchanged money and had breakfast. The rooms where very small the bed took up most of it so it was hard to unpack. The beds where split in the middle which is common in the country but I hate it!

It was good not excellent!

I was looking forward to having a room with a view. Instead I got the room above the kitchen with a view of an alley where the workers take break. I was waken up every morning approx 5-6 in the morning from noise comming from the kitchen. Not ideal! Make sure youre no where near the kitchen. Other than that everthing else was GOOD.
