This hotel is st the beginning of the Grand Canal. It is perfectly situated to begin your exploration of Venice. The food was suitable but not memorable. I would suggest venturing out to one of the restaurants. .many many to chose from.
"On the canal "
A most pleasant stay at this smallish, clean, well run hotel. The bedroom was a good size and clean and had a well stocked bathroom. All the breakfast items were fresh and the menu was varied. The rooftop bar was very pleasant. Well worth a visit. We will stay again.
"Great Hotel in perfect location"
My husband and myself have just spent 4 nights in the Carlton. Our room faced inwards overlooking the glass covered lounge area. The room was typically Venetian and met our needs perfectly. It was clean with the linen changed daily. Whilst breakfast was not amazing it was sufficient. We opted for the cold buffet. The fruit salad was predominantly apple but if we dug deep enough we found other fruit as well. The hotel us ideally situated opposite the main railway station and only a 10 minute walk from the bus station. We used the Atvo express coach from the bus station to the airport which was good value at 8 euros each way. We purchased a 2 day Vaporetto pass but really should have purchased one for 3 day s as we visited the is on and s if the North Lagoon one day and another day we went to the Lido. Well worth a visit later in the day as the sunset looking back to Venice was lovely. We probably only needed 3 days rather than 4. We walked a lot too as Rialto and Saint Marks are within walking distance. Following the yellow direction signs painted on the buildings made navigation easy. Don't forget to visit the roof top bar for great views of the Grand Canal. Overall a great stay in an excellent location.
"Good hotel and best location a hotel can be in."
Our Room was average but hotel is altogether very good. Hotel staff was friendly. It had it's own water taxi port. It is very near to train station and bus station. Breakfast is very good and well served.i recommend this hotel if you don't have a very high budget.
"Nice hotel, great location for Central Station"
First time in Venice, and expectation was for smaller sized rooms and slightly older style decor. With this in mind, the hotel met these expectations, but surpassed in many other ways. Firstly, location we found was great. We arrived on a coach trip, and transferred to hotel by ferry , but left on a train. The station is literally across the opposite side of the Grand Canal, with a short walk over a footbridge. Really close. The hotel had a great rooftop bar, nice to sit out the front by the canal and watch the world go by with a drink. The hotel is quite large and therefore popular. We found the breakfast was quite a busy time. The hot food choice was limited with bacon and scrambled eggs on the buffet - but for optional cost you can order other items freshly cooked. Service was good. The downside of the location is that the hotel is a good 20-25 minutes walk, or 20 minutes on the ferry (to Rialto Bridge). Nice walk but having done it 3-4 times it was a bit of a drag. However, there are plenty of restaurants very close to the Carlton, some on the same side, but mostly across the footbridge. Would definitely recommend, and would stay here again if in Venice.
