Dining

Restaurant
The restaurant is an additional source of pride for Hotel Continental. Charming, open until late at night, it is located in a very pleasant room inspired by the elegant and refined 18th century Venetian style and has a splendid view of Canal Grande. The "a la carte" menu proposes typical Venetian cuisine specialties, skillfully and creatively interpreted by the chef, who also offers the best international cuisine dishes, to satisfy the tastes of the hotel's increasingly cosmopolitan guests. The most prestigious Venetian, Italian and international wines from a well-stocked cellar accompany the delicious food. The terrace is very romantic for truly special dinners by candlelight. Room service is available for guests who request it.

Penalized for internet booking

We stayed one night at the Continental Hotel in Venice, after 3 nights at another nearby hotel. Great location on the Grand Canal, walking distance to the train station. Arrived around 11AM, expecting to check our bags, however, the room was ready, so that was nice. The clerk said, "nice room, up a few stairs". Unfortunately, the "few stairs" turned out to be 96 steps to the fourth and highest floor, to the most distant room in the hotel. With an elevator that didn't go to that part of the hotel. I explained to the desk clerk that my bad knees made the climb very difficult, to which he responded that the hotel would be full that day with several tour groups and we couldn't get another room. I felt we were penalized for using an internet booking, as the rate was very good and we were provided the least desirable room in the place. For one night we made due, however, it was not a pleasant experience. The dining area is very nice, with tables on the veranda overlooking the Grand Canal. Our breakfast there was very memorable, good food and great ambiance. I feel the hotel is very nice as a converted historic locale, but would warn other travelers of the likelihood of getting a disappointing room if you use any kind of a discount booking vehicle.

Bad Experience

We travel Europe for 3 weeks and used a booking company regularly. This hotel started by not having a shower, the room cleaning was bad (did not clean room until we asked the then tried to do it when we were showering), and the breakfast staff were unfriendly (when we asked to eat outside on the patin - one door - they looked at us like we were insane).

Great location& breakfast

We loved being able to turn in our car and walk to the hotel and later to the train station. The on and off boats were wonderful and so near the hotel. The flower arrangements in the hotel were fantastic!

Feel the real Venice

Great location. One block from the train station and 100 yards from the water bus stop. The hotel was compfortable and had an elegant feel. Our room was on the Grand Canal and my daughter just loved opening the shutters and looking over the water and watching the traffic go by. The bath was very modern. It and the room were large by European standards. The staff was pleasant and helpful with directions and train times. The breakfast was expansive and served on the canal side of the hotel. Shopping was all around and it was a nice 40 minute walk to San Marco plazza. Everything is within walking distance.

Good location -terrible beds & noisy

This hotel is an easy walk from Piazzele Roma. But- the hotel is very noisy with the traffic on the grand canal, door banging all night and people talking loudly at 4 a.m. The staff were not pleasant and seemed to be annoyed if you asked a question. The beds were terrible-bouncy, sagging in the middle & you could feel springs through the mattress. If you want a good night's sleep avoid this hotel.

Central Location

The Continental Hotel in Venice is centrally located to the train station, cafes, markets, and shops. It was just a short Vaporetto ride to St. Mark's square. I stayed with my 2 sons in the hotel and we had a triple room (3 separate beds) which worked for us. It overlooked a nice courtyard. We had help getting our luggage to our room which made all the difference because of the different corridors and floors. The staff were pleasant especially the breakfast staff who were very attentive. This was a good value for us and we were there on a summer festival night. It was pretty quiet in our room as we were at the end of a corridor. Overall, I would definitely choose this hotel again and would recommend it to others.

My children and I had the energy to walk all around Venice from the hotel and could browse many of the shops and cafes locally.
