Good Venice Spot

Hotel is very nice and nicely decorated. It is quiet and peaceful. Breakfast is good. Its location is good, on the grand canal but it is not fabulous. Overall, it was a good experience.

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

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

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

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.

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%.

Great location, descent hotel

First of all, the location doesn't get any better. It is steps away from the train station. The room itself was teeny tiny, but clean and relatively comfortable. When we checked in (at the stated time), we were told that we'd have to wait about 30 minutes for our room to be ready. We waited about 20 minutes, but we were in a hurry to get to a reservation, so we asked on an update and they told us it'd be another hour. When they saw that this kind of annoyed me, they tried to give us another room, which also wasn't ready, and eventually gave us an upgraded, bigger room overlooking the water. It was a more expensive room and you could tell that they really weren't excited about giving it away at first, but they did it anyway, which I appreciated. The room overlooking the water was pretty awesome.
