Historical Traveler Reviews Canal and Walter Hotel Malcesine

Good Budget Hotel

from

Staff were helpful, and reception staff all spoke very good English. Nice and clean.

Good value for money

from

Having spent sometime browsing the internet for reasonably priced rooms in a convenient location in Venice, we settled on the Canal & Walter for 3 nights.

As others have said - the outside is a little disappoiting and you wonder what you've done... also, it's just called Hotel Canal which is a little confusing.

Once inside, things were great - rooms are "typical Venetian style" which is an excuse for "dated" (but most hotels in Venice are like that!), but were very clean with a nice size modern bathroom.

Staff were pleasant and most spoke English, whilst the breakfast was basic but did it's job!

Well worth paying an extra €20 for a canal view room.

Amazing City

from

The Hotel Canal & Walter is a small hotel ideally located between the train station and the main bus station (easy walking distance). There is a lovely outdoor patio for breakfast in nice weather. Unfortunately, there is no elevator in the hotel which means at least one flight of stairs with your luggage (also the bridges over the canals have many steps). It is possible to connect to the internet through the phone line in the room.

Better to try the Bridge of Sighs

from

Best thing about this hotel was its location: across from the train station on the Grand Canal. Second best was the air conditoning. Worst was everything else. Our three-bed room featured an army cot as the third bed, which was fortunate, since with a regular-sized bed, there'd have been no room to walk into the room. View was of a decaying wall. The continental breakfast was served in a lovely courtyard, but was limited to teeth-breaker rolls and Melba toast. Also, there's no night clerk: we nearly missed our early train because it took us 15 minutes to find someone to unlock the front door and let us out at 7 AM. Give this a miss.

Great location, roomy but dated

from

This is on the grand canal and is walking distance from the station. Reception was extremely professional, helpful, and efficient. We booked a double and were pleasantly surpised that the room was actually very large with a good size bathroom and a view of a side canal. (tolentinni I think - a main gondola thorough fare - which provided some interesting photo's). The breakfast was pretty basic, but they had yoghurt... and fresh orange juice - which was a refreshing change. We stayed here for 3 nights and found it more than adequate for its price and I would recommend it. Don;t expect something romatic and beautiful - the rooms a very drab and need a spruce up... but who cares... you're in Venice!

Good hotel

from

Liked this hotel very much. It is a little dated, but kept very clean.

Staff was very helpful. Location is great. Good value for the price.

COLD WELCOME IN VENICE

from

Don't visit this hotel if you want a warm welcome or a hot bath - neither was forthcoming during our five day stay in February.This was a great pity as the hotel is in an ideal location and was otherwise O.K.

for the price.The receptionist was downright rude and tried to convince us that there was a law in Venice that stated that water could be no more than 60degrees - the water in our bathroom was only just above freezing.

Good hotel for the price

from

We spent 2 nights here. The lobby clerk speaks perfect ENGLISH. They also set up Murano glassworks tours for free. Breakfast was very good.

Don't let the outside appearance of the building scare you. It is very nice on the inside. We'd recommend it for the $60USD price.

Good rate on the canal

from

We stayed @ the Hotel Canal & Walter for 2 nites and had the best continental breakfast of our trip. The hotel is across from the train station, which makes it convient for arrival & departure. A triple in November was $80. You can find their rates by going on the site. Just search Canal & Walter. Friendly & helpful service @ the desk. We happened to get the room you see in the picture above the front door, with a view of the canal. Would stay again.

Stayed Aug 29 2002

from

We stayed here and were very pleased. It's a budget hotel - no lift - but very clean and only 3 stories. Modern bath and AC which was hard to figure out, but when we did, it worked just fine. Nice beds, a TV and frigobar, small desk and chair. The breakfast was more than adequate and served out in the garden. We would definitely stay here again. The prices fluctuate - so check carefully. We stayed for 90 Euros - all included, but this year for March 2003, the price is 140 Euros, out of our budget. We were disappointed! Very easy to get to from the P Roma, only 2 smallish bridges to cross.

... different side to Monaco and were happy with our decision to give it a second crack. Our last day had us all umming and ahhing about whether to head up to Cannes or St Tropez but eventually we all thought we should give Nice a bit more love and so headed into the old town - it is a lovely city when you wander around the streets and give her some time. After waiting out a quick downpour, we thought we'd duck to the restaurant next door for dinner. Well we walked past that ...

Accomodation & Public Transport

... this hotel, so I knew what kind of room to get and what to expect from the hotel.


Public Transport

If you're flying in, your best bet is to get the Alilaguna boat service from Marco Polo Airport to the hotel (€15 per person), as it stops a few hundred yards down from the hotel, and as a female I do not travel lightly, so I was pleased that it wasn't that far to walk. (There is a small bridge though).
The public transportation is ...

After wandering around for an hour or so, we picked a small coffee shop for a break and had a snack. The coffee and chocolate croissants were great, but then it's Italy and we haven't had a bad meal yet! Some of our group also showed up and we hung out until it was time to meet back at the bus.

... was not worth it. So we did some wandering away from the tourist path and found a gondolier who took us around the canals between private residence, across the grand canal, and into more quiet and beautiful areas. He was well worth finding as our gondolier sang softly, pointed out notable buildings, and never had another gondola near us. A bit of luck and perseverance payed off. After the excellent ride we needed food and with ...
