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

Enjoyable stay

Reasonably convenient to Piazzale Roma ( bus terminal ), the train station, water bus station and the cruise ship docks ( we caught a cruise from Venice so this was significant ). Only three small bridges to cross from the bus terminal. Private water taxi mooring directly in front of the hotel ( water taxis are expensive but worth the investment for certain situations ). Access is an important issue in Venice as your options are either water taxi or walking, mostly walking. Bridges have steps not ramps so they dictate the accessibility ( imagine dragging your wheeled luggage over them ), also most walkways are cobblestone. If you stay here and are interested in Gothic Cathedrals be sure to visit the small cathedral just across the Grand Canal from the hotel, it is well worth the visit. We feel that this hotel is a little pricey but overall it was worth it.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a main water bus station just across the Grand Canal from the hotel with a major bridge close by. From this station you can access virtually anywhere in Venice although the water bus is a bit of an adventure....sort of like herding cattle.

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.

Nice hotel, great location.

Loved the location. Right on the grand canal and across from the train station. Clean and fairly comfortable. Excellent breakfast buffet.

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.

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.
