TripAdvisor Ratings & Reviews for Hotel Carlton & Grand Canal
Just come back from 3 wonderful days in Venice.The Carlton Hotel was spotlessly clean, quiet, spacious rooms, plenty of choice at breakfast and the staff were always helpful, speaking perfect english. Step outside and we were on the edge of the Grand Canal. It was in a great position for seeing all the attractions by water bus or foot but slightly away from the main hub and bustle of Venice. We were amazed it wasn't higher up the list, it deserves to be.

Venice is more expensive than the rest of Italy, and I was afraid I might get a dive if I went budget there. The Carlton was very nice, the staff was very helpful and understood my questions about getting an umbrella on the Lido Beach even though we were nowhere near the beach.
I did not find it noisy; are room was in the back and had no view. I sat at a public park about two blocks down and drank beer and watched the Grand Canal at night and noticed nothing that would wake anyone. It was a pleasant stay, although it was a long boat ride to St. Mark's and a long walk to the Rialto. It is not far however to the train station, and I usually like to book places where I do not have to lug my luggage.
I was worried by the other reviews but my experience was different. The Hotel was good, clean and I had no problem with noise. The staff were very helpful and although the hotel is not situated in the most popular parts of Venice, it was close to amenities and generally a good location with good choice of resturants.

We stayed at the Carlton for three nights in May 2003 and found the accomodations, staff, and service to be above average. Our room (a triple) was large and the bathroom was great (terrific water pressure!). We had a problem with the air conditioning which was attended to immediately by maintenance. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was ample. The proximity to the rail station was important as we were traveling by rail. It was also very close to a vaparetto stop. Its not near many tourist sites, but buy a boat pass and travel the canal - that's the best part of Venice anyway! Its a nice hotel and I would recommend it to anyone and stay there again.

We stayed at this hotel on May 19, 2004. The room was very clean and the room we were given was to the rear of the hotel without a water view. Due to the fact that the room faced the rear of the hotel it was very quiet and we were not disturbed by any of the heavy boat traffic out front. (Even though a canal view room would be nice, I don't think anyone comes to Venice to sit in a room an look out a window. Opt for a rear room for the quiet and get out to experience Venice on foot or by boat.) The train station is directly across the canal from the hotel and is only a 2 minute walk over one bridge to arrive. (If you have more than one bag, however, the trek over this very large, high bridge may be a burden to some older or handicapped visitors.) The staff at the hotel who speak English were very helpful, polite and professional. The breakfast included with the rate was vaired enough to get you and your party fueled up for a full day of walking and siteseeing around town. Although about a half hour to 45 minute walk to St. Marks Square, the trek through the alleyways and shopping areas added to the experience of Venice and made the arrival at the square just right to sit and enjoy a coffee and people watch. We were able to have a water taxi come to the hotel boat dock 5 steps from the front doors of the hotel in front and take us directly to the Marco Polo Airport for about 80 Euro total for 4 people and bags. Although expensive, a motor car was about 50 Euro for 2 people and bags. This was very convienient as it drops you off just steps from the airport terminal.

Final four day leg of our two week honeymoon trip to Italy. Since we arrive by train, it was easy to get there...right across the canal. The rooms are very small (but we new before hand), but the view and the small balcony overlooking the Grand Canal made up for it. The hotel staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. Even though it was away from the main tourist sites, it was nice to explore the side streets of old Venice, and getting to and from San Marco Square became a daily adventure.

We stayed 4 nights here in the last leg of our Italian honeymoon in Sept. 2001. We mainly picked this hotel for its proximity to the train station. Very easy walk. It is also very close to the bus station that takes you to the airport. It's on the Grand Canal, but has a view of the train station, so probably not worth it to pay extra for a canal veiw room (too noisy). Our room overlooked a pretty outdoor courtyard that was very quiet. The room had AC, but it was cool enough that we didn't need it. Unfortunately, the maid that cleaned our room kept leaving the windows open in our room. Since there were no screens, mosquitos would hide in our room and come out at night while we were asleep (they would buzz in our ears and then bite us). That's was probably the only negative about this hotel, but I guess it could happen anywhere in Venice since the whole place is surrounded by water and mosquitos love it. The buffet breakfast was excellent (so is the coffee, like most coffee in Italy). Breakfast is included in the rate. The bathroom was large, but as someone commented before, water would come out of the shower onto the bathroom floor, because the shower curtain doesn't reach around the entire tub. The hotel paid for us to have a free water taxi ride to the island of Murano, where they make all that beautiful Venetian glass. They took us to a glass blowing factory where they showed us someone making glass, then they took us to their showroom with VERY expensive pieces. The pieces were gorgeous and they were trying the hard sell on us (that's why you get the free water taxi ride). We told them we wanted to have lunch and "think about it" and got the hell out of there. We went to some much cheaper shops and bought some nice stuff. Then, we took a public water bus back to Venice (only a couple of bucks). A word of advice on Murano glass--unless you're looking for something spectacular, the best deals are in those stands around the Rialto bridge (actually cheaper than Murano). Back to the hotel--be sure to take the public water bus down the Grand Canal--it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and the way Venice was meant to be seen. We LOVED Venice--one of the most romantic places in the world. This hotel was a good base for us. We might try someplace different next time we go just to go some place different (we hope to return for our 5-yr. anniversary).

The hotel is beautiful. It is right on the water, by a beatiful bridge. There are plenty of good reasonable restaurants near by, as well as many shops. The room was very pretty and clean. It was absolutely amazing. Right outside the hotel is where one could get the gondolas. I can't say enough about Venice. It is surreal. The hotel and the place were something dreams are made of. Enjoy!!

We just returned from our 10 year anniversary trip to Venice 3/25/04. We picked the Carlton and Grand Hotel based on other reviews at trip advisor. Everything was excellent. The location is quiet, but close to everything. We had the most fun wandering from the hotel to sites in the city. When we got tired of walking, we rode the ACTV (public ferry) to across the canal from the hotel (Ferrovia). The hotel staff was courteous and helpful. Our best dinner was recommended by the desk clerk. This was a great vacation and we will have great memories. I'm glad we found trip advisor and used others reviews to help make our decision. Thanks!

My husband and I just returned from a two week trip to Italy. Our first stop was Italy and we stayed at the Hotel Carlton and Grand Canal. The hotel is located directly across the canal from the train station and a nearby bridge makes it easly accessible. It's a short walk from Piazza Roma, where the buses would drop you off from the airport. We stayed in the new addition on the back patio area and found our room to be nice and quiet. Although it wasn't large, it gave us enough room to function. Since we really didn't spend much time in the room, the size didn't really bother us. The continental breakfast was good. Most employees spoke English and they gave us some great restaurant recommendations. There is a vaperetto stop near the train station that can take you quickly and easily down to St Marks and the other popular attractions.
