Elegant and welcoming, the Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal has been run with passion for approximately 30 years by a Venetian family which loves to pay its guests attention, by providing them with valuable advise on how to capture the city’s true essence.Pastel shades, Venetian stuccoes, glass wall lamps made in Murano, furnishings which, while being functional, recall the glorious Serenissima epoch: these are the elements of the new hall and bar, completely mirrored on marvellous Istria stone. Right at the centre of the hotel is an original glass cupola creating light effects which highlight its sophistication. The recently restored, characteristic internal patio onto which some of the rooms look out and where guests can enjoy breakfast or relax, using it as a peaceful open-air lounge, has a notable impact on guests. The elegant Bar Carlton Café offers you the chance to taste excellent drinks and whet your appetite with unusual snacks both in the internal room and in the open-air, enjoying an unforgettable stay on the Grand Canal.The hotel also offers its guests outstanding opportunities to discover all of Venice’s magic, by organizing personalised itineraries and excursions: boat tours to the lagoon islands, guided tours of the city, romantic itineraries followes by a candle lit dinner and much more.

We’ve just returned from the best time ever at this hotel - the staff are amazing and the hotel lived up to all our expectations during our trip to Venice! We would highly recommend this hotel, having stayed for three nights we didn’t want to leave - the whole experience and level of service we received from everyone made our stay extra special ……don’t stay anywhere else 🙂🙂

The location was great! Across the canal from all main transportation and starting point to begin touring Venice. Hotel staff were very nice and wanted your stay to be great. Tables out front to enjoy a glass of wine after a long day and to watch the world go by. Short distance to one of our favorite restaurants, Mira. The only negative… the shower was very small and did not have anything to hang onto climbing in and out. The location and friendly staff made up for the shower!

Only good thing about this hotel is that it over looks the grand canal. Other than that I had to go out in a creased t shirt, no iron allowed in the room. I’ve heard nothing like it. He choose the word ‘forbidden’ in the room. I’m well travelled and I’ve never been told I can’t iron my own clothes. I would therefore have to pay someone to do it for me. Shocking and rude staff. Thankfully we only stayed one night

This was our second time at the Carlton. Last time was about 7 years ago. It is perfectly situated within the carpark and right on the grand canal. With Gondolas outside the door. Staff is always helpful and so friendly. We had drinks on the roof top which is amazing and staff again so friendly. There is only one thing I would suggest. It needs a renovation. I like the old royalty look but the bathrooms are in need of a total reface. They look the same from 7 years ago with only patch work when needed. So please, put some money into the renovation works without taking about from the royalty look. It is well over due. See you again Carlton!
