      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.

      We stayed in an apartment right in the centre of Venice. It was a little strange and our host, Lorenz, was an interesting character. The first full day, we visited St Marks Basilica and went to the Doges Palace. There were amazing paintings and the kids liked the armoury and the prisons. We walked over the Bridge of Sighs and the Rialto Bridge. The kids were getting tired and the rain started, so we caught a water bus. Now that was an experience - squished ...

The kids even got to take part in the feeding of the Pigeons which gave them a real laugh when the Pigeons just landed on them and took food right from their hands. We enjoyed the rest of our stay with great food and more sights before setting off on the train to Cinque Terre… oh ya stop… we are not going to make it to Cinque Terre, more on that on the next blog ...

      We woke up after that ordeal expecting to see the Venice canals outside and even inside our tent but alas It was all clear and the fear of us being stranded hear and our plane not leaving due to the storm was quickly quashed.

      All in all, we obviously must say that this one stop had been an adventurous one and something we will both never forget. Im sure neither will most of you.
