    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Canaletto Venice

    Extremely satisfied

    from

    I stayed at the Canaletto in November 2004 for three nights. It is a small hotel but my room was huge. Very aristocratic - I loved the décor. My double bed was enormous as was the bathroom which had more than I bargained for. Both the bathroom and the room were kept spotless on a daily basis. My room also had a large balcony but I did not make much use of it due to bad weather. The only thing one must be aware of is that the walls are pretty thin. At one point I could hear the guy in the room next to mine snoring. At the time of my visit, some maintenance work was taking place on my floor (I did not know this at the time of booking) which meant that every morning at 9 there was a lot of noise. The hotel's location is also very good - five minutes from St. Mark's Square - on the main island. There are many restaurants in the area (Venice is full of them) as well as shops and cafes. I found staff to be very friendly and polite, while breakfast was good but basic. What I liked about breakfast was that even though it was not very rich, it was very well laid out and kept under constant watch! All in all, a very good option!

    Great location & Clean

    from

    In September 2004 my 2 girlfriends and I stayed here, the rooms are small but very clean. The bathroom was a good size and extreamly clean, I really enjoyed the furniture at this hotel very "venetian", with it's fabric padded walls!! The breakfast was descent and the hotel staff were great! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! It had a great location it's 5 minutes from everything every different direction. Venice is not an inexpensive place to visit, but this hotel came a very reasonable price and had everything that we were looking for, location and cleanliness, I would return to this hotel!!!!

    Great accomodations

    from

    We stayed here two nights 10-2-04. This little hard to find hotel had good service and a great breakfast. The room we had was next door to the hotel entrance and the room was large with marble floors. The room had A/C and plenty of storage.

    Great location

    from

    Canaletto we thought was a great central location for all the places we went to. We stayed in the new part of the hotel and the room was very clean the bathroom did not flood as I have read in some other reviews which was a relief. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was better than I thought it was going to be. All in all a satisfactory stay here and would stay here again.

    Beautiful hotel with excellent facilities

    from

    The hotel was perfectly located - just off St Marks Square - and very easy to find (perhaps previous reviwers couldn't read very easy instructions). The view over the basin was magic - watch the Gondoliers in the evening 'park' the gondolas & watch, from the breakfast table, them prepare them for the day. You can arrive directly by water taxi or gondola to the hotel door. The staff are very friendly & helpful. Our room was beautiful & immaculately prepared - we overlooked a lovely little square at the rear of the hotel. The cocktails in the bar were beautifully presented & good value. The breakfast was typically 'continental' with lots of fresh fruit & a good selection of fresh breads etc. We have recommended the hotel to all our friends and we are looking forward to returning.

    Very satisfactory

    from

    A clean well located hotel. Staff helpful. Shower did flood the bathroom floor. Not much of a view, but not that bad. Disappointed with the breakfast offered. Bisquits and other pastry only. TV - the only english station was BBC world. Venice is a great city to visit. We were in Venice, Florence and Rome. Deffinitely would go back to Venice and probably stay at the Canaletto again

    Better than expected

    from

    We spent 3 nights at Hotel Canaletto. Situated a reasonable walk from the water taxi stop, we spent around 30 mins trying to locate the hotel whilst having to drag our suitcases through crowded streets. When we finally arrived, we were fairly pleasantly surprised considering the two star rating. The room was clean and of reasonable size; the bed was very comfortable. Our windows overlooked the kitchen of another establishment but it was very quiet at night. Shower leaked like a sieve all over the bathroom floor. Breakfast was adequate without being spectacular. No lift. Staff courteous and helpful. Would probably choose a more highly rated hotel next time.

    Excellent Location

    from

    Located between San Marco and Rialto so excellent in the location stakes. Not directly on a water taxi route which makes arrival & departure with luggage a bit of a hassle especially at night when you can hardly see anything. This is a small 2 star hotel. The rooms are small, facilities just enough, breakfasts just adequate (we supplemented what was provided with fresh fruit bought at a small market nearby) but the $$$ are OK. Staff were helpful but do not expect stunning customer service. Would stay there again because of location and cost.

    Definitely recommendable

    from

    The Cavaletto is definitely a recommendable four star hotel in an ideal location (right off of St. Mark's Square).It is quiet except when tourists are waiting for a gondola ride from the basin directly behind the hotel, but with closed windows this is not a problem. The hotel is clean and the staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are extremely small, but well equipped and air-conditioned.

    ... even harder to carry it over considering our big suitcases alone have to weigh at least 60 pounds each.

    When we got to the train station we learned a very valuable TrenItalia lesson. Availability is quite limited the day of purchase and so it is best to buy train tickets in advance. The earliest train we were able to book was at 2:30 and we arrived at the train station at about 9am. Luckily, the train stations in Venice (and Florence as it turns ...

It turned out to be a great choice because it was actually pretty good. I'm sure we could have found a restaurant that is cheaper that served the same food. Oh well. Live and learn right? We bought another bottle of wine for the night before we have to travel to ...

    Oh man, the day I travelled to Italy was like an episode off 24 hours. I had homework due that day, I had to meet with an old friend of mine, Soukaina and then I had to catch a train, hop on a shuttle bus and barely made it to the Charleroi airport at like 35 mins before my flight! Race against the clock that I won!!

I have heard from everyone that it is a fantastic city. And on a side note, I am going to try to find a cable to connect my camera to my iPad so I can upload more pictures on here! Yay, can't ...

We figured we could set our backpacks next to our table and avoid paying for luggage storage at the station. Every little bit counts. We stopped at this cute little restaurant on the street corner and had our first fancy Italian ...
