... to relax and wander quietly.
We saw lots of interesting sites while being driven around the canals. Transportation of goods is interesting, lots of taxis piled high with furniture, food, etc. We also saw a funeral, with the coffin in a boat being taken across the canal. In the evening we were taken on a motor boat cruise along the Guidecca Canal where the guide pointed out all the ...
... to a gondola fabrication and repair yard and a very scrumptious lunch including finishing with an espresso with a good shot of grappa. Following lunch Sara and the Tyler’s headed to the Coop Market at P. Roma for a little grocery shopping while Roger went to the train station to meet Joyce and Louis who were arriving from Rome at about 335 pm. That evening the Thibs and Seals had a G&T at 5 pm followed by a nice dinner at the nearby ...
... beautiful. And high on a hill. After a two hour tour, we dined and slept in an elegant hotel, a converted convent.
Rising today at 5:30 am, we journeyed to the one of a KIND VENICE. We used a water taxi, boat, to get to the Grand Canal, boating thru it all. We then landed at St. Mark's Piazza, walked thru huge crowds and shops, had a orange Spritz, and walked some more. At 5 pm, we boarded a Gondola, ...
... the most beautiful sights! Blue waters and ornate buildings. The paint colors on the houses are so vibrant! I told Chris that we need to paint our house purple. It's exactly what you would expect Venice to be like- so beautiful that it looks fake! When we arrived at the docks of the Venetian mainland, it was sunny and hot. This was the first place on our trip that we didn't need extra clothing at all! So we were stuck dragging around our sweaters for our ...
... at 8:00.... The hostel only held 17 people and with a pot of sangria, I got to know my first Brazilian, two girls from Victoria, and some Columbians. I still can't wrap my head around the lives these people lead.... Well, around 9:30 we ventured off to see the fireworks show... It took us an hour and a half of walking, stopping and searching until we found the show. The rest of the night was a complete blur. The fireworks show lasted from 11:30 to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Canaletto Venice
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
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!!!!
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
