"The area it is in right on the canal opposite santa Lucia station. We got a coach from the airport and the hotel is about 5 minutes awayfrom Piazzale Roma. An easy walk on the flat. The room was small but very comfortable and clean."

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Venice is "a city unlike any other" (Fodor's), with its canals, ornate churches, museums and architecture. Explore its sights from the Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal, right on the waterfront.

The traditional hotel is in the Santa Croce district and overlooks the Grand Canal, Venice's key waterway. It is a 20-minute walk from the Gallerie dell'Accademia, which has a fine collection of art dating from the 14th-18th centuries. St Mark's Square, where you'll find the Doge's Palace, St Mark's Basilica and the Torre dell'Orologie, is 25 minutes' walk away. Santa Lucia train station is a 5-minute stroll from the hotel.

The hotel's La Cupola restaurant serves authentic Venetian fare, or you can stop off for an aperitif at the Carlton Café. The rooftop terrace (open May-September) offers panoramic city views.

Rooms are decorated in 18th-century Venetian style, with Murano glass chandeliers, ornate furnishings and rich damask fabric wall coverings. Superior Rooms are larger than the standard Classic Rooms. Patio Rooms are more modern, and overlook the gardens. All rooms have free Wi-Fi.

The breakfast is very mediocre. The coffee tastes more like hot chocolate . Most of the staff are very pleasant but I found the two men on reception quite officious in their attitude.

Everything! From the moment we entered the hotel to the moment we left everything was perfect!

The staff were exceptionally helpful and nothing was too much trouble! The building and interior were beautiful and the room was spacious, beautifully designed and furnished! We had a courtyard/patio room which opened out onto a lovely very well kept courtyard which was a pleasure to sit in, relax and write postcards! The breakfast was excellent and a joy to look forward to each morning! We were truly really disappointed to leave and hopefully will certainly return! I can't praise this hotel and the staff enough!
