      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Canaletto Venice

      Extremely satisfied


      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!!!!

      Great accomodations


      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


      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.

      Very satisfactory


      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.

      Excellent Location


      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


      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.

Overall we really enjoyed the ride and it was very fun to see the city the way it was designed to be seen, from the comfortable seats in these historic boats. The gondola dropped us off on the other side of the Grand Canal so we continued to meander through the narrow alleyways and busy streets, visiting the Rialto Bridge, San ...

      Enjoy, it was a feast for the visual senses.
      It was a rare occasion when Phillip wasn't holding his breathe passing shop windows. This girl was "window shopping" and I actually enjoyed every minute of it!

The hotel is a boutique hotel, very small, but decorated absolutely perfectly....with a cute Italian being kind and funny and wanting only to make you feel welcome....HELLO!!!! Ok, I'll stop....but I hope you get the picture!

      Venice only has one square, St Mark's, all the other smaller ones are called campo. They are delightful. All have at least one well, a fountain, some shade trees if it is big enough, outdoor cafes and often a church after which it is named. Many have outdoor fruit and veg stalls, supplying the surrounding apartment blocks.

      Quite a few of the (overweight ) Americans complained the tour guide was going too fast. We had no ...

      A travel blog entry by katstevenson on Jul 08, 2013

      Got up bright and early for a day in the sinking city. We got on the bus to drive to the ferry to cross to the island that is the main city of Venice. The breakfast at the hotel was **** so we went to a place called Aurora cafe with Dylan and Dan. Here we got a real second breakfast and also enjoyed an Italian's version of breakfast which is just a coffee and a cigarette. The initial plan for the day was to go to Lido beach for the day. We were ...
