"Beautiful and great location."
Just returned from 2 nights at this great hotel. We checked in with ease. The reception/concierge man (didn't catch his name) was fantastic and really helpful when we needed directions to a restaurant. He gave us a map and drew a route on it for us, he was very knowledgeable about the vaparetto lines and the connections we needed. There was a porter service to take our bags to the room and the room was brilliant!! It was decorated in a beautiful duck egg blue, and very Venetian with a chandelier over the bed which we found really romantic. Breakfast was great, and again all staff involved were beautifully dressed and extremely professional and polite, and the tables were dressed impeccably. The location is great and was a big factor for me booking it. It's opposite the Ferrovia vaparetto stop which has great connections all over Venice, so it's great for a weekend quick visit. Thoroughly recommend this hotel, great location, staff, decor and vibe. We shall definitely stay here again when we next visit :-)
Just returned from a family weekend break at the Carlton. There were 11 of us in total from 65 to 21 years of age. All the rooms were very different. I had previously e mailed the hotel to ask if I could have a canal view room if available and was pleasantly surprised when they managed to allocate one to us when I got there! Thank you, grately appreciated. We had room 212 which was lovely and looked right over the canal. The room had a fridge and hair dryer and was clean and tidy. Be aware that there are no kettles though! We booked a private boat water taxi to and from the airport which was amazing, well worth paying a bit extra. We were all very excited. Breakfast was included which included eggs, bacon, rolls, cheese, ham, criosants, cakes, cereal etc Plenty to choose from. The staff were very helpful, especially when someone left their room key in there room which happened many times between us all. We went on a gondola for 45 minutes and as there were 6 of us, it cost only 17 euros each. It was lovely and very informative. Booked near St Marks Square. I would recommend the Doge's palace and The Basilica in St Marks Square- a m-az-ing!!!! Such a spectacular sight. Only 19 euros to see 4 museums which is fantastic value. Everywhere you go there are spectacular views. January is an amazing time to visit as there are no queues and is easy to get about. Chilli but dry, perfect for sightseeing. Location Santa Croce is perfect as cheaper to eat and drink but plenty of shops etc close by but short boat ride to St Marks. Very safe too! Right opposite the train station. I fell in love with Venice and so did all of our family. We will be back very soon and I would certainly book this hotel again. We booked with Voyage Prive and got a great price, £210 pp for flight from Bristol, two nights hotel and boat transfer. What more can you ask for' Thank you hotel Carlton for putting up with us.
We've just come back from Venice and we stayed in Carlton on the Grand which was absolutely lovely. The hotel is very clean and holds onto a Venician style and character which we loved. The staff were very helpful and really great.. they made us feel very welcome. Our room was very small but since we spent hardly any time in it so we managed.. great location, easy to get around to all the main tourist areas and lots of nice shops and restaurants near by, I would highly recommend this hotel!
We stayed for 3 nights. Positives are the Location which is good, as right on the Grand Canal. It's just all a bit tired and would benefit from a make over. Our room had lots of dirty marks on walls and ceiling, and carpet needed replaced. Bed & shower were fine.Breakfast was again very basic. Its just all a bit basic and no frills. Wouldn't return.
"Beautiful hotel with central location."
The location of this hotel is perfect! You step out and you are right on the canal. It is walking distance from everything, and has good amenities and a good breakfast. Loved my stay here! The hotel also has a good lounge/bar and a cute little terrace. Definitely recommend staying here if you are in Venice.
