Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal
Travel Blogs from Venice
Thinking about a trip to Venice Italy? Be sure to stay on the island so you can enjoy a memorable experience. The first thing we noticed was how quiet it is...no traffic, no cars, no motorscooters. Easy walking distance to the stores, St Mark's Cathedral, and the shopping.
The most anticipated destination for both of us but I have to say a bit of a let down. Amazing buildings, canals and gondola rides etc but hotel was a bit average for prestige palace location and city stinks with rubbish, sewerage and sea weed rotting in waterways.
Had some fun nights as the last destination with tour group and said good …
We had another weekend trip provided by my program API: destination, Venice. As you allllll know, now is the time of carnevale! Masks. PEOPLE. Allora. I'm getting ahead of myself. This trip was not a three day weekend trip like Rome. Ha, no. Alas, we boarded our bus Saturday morning at 6AM. I was up at 4:45AM getting ready for this bus ride. Va …
We finally arrived in Venice! The flight over was great. We are spoiled rotten and have decided that the only way to fly is in a recliner! We arrived just minutes after the rest of our group and met up with them at the baggage carousel, perfect timing. We didn't plan or pack for rain. Have you ever seen photos of Italy when it was raining? No, sun …
Got up and had breakfast overlooking the Grand canal. Fantastic view watching the gondoliers getting ready and the motor launches bringing in provisions to the hotel. Deceided to take the water bus up the Grand Canal and get off past the Alto bridge to explore the more residential areas. Trip up the canal was like living in a film set and the …

Idyllic. A truly wonderful way to see Venice. Just steps to St Mark's Square. Great restaurants around the square.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal Venice
I was very pleased with my stay at The Monaco and Grand Canal Hotel.
Just literally foot-steps away from the water bus stop and St. Marks Square, the location was ideal. With it's pleasant staff (just about the nicest people we meet in Venice) and clean and newly renovated accodomations, i would stay there again in a heartbeat. The restuarant is pricey but worth it when you taste the food.
We have just returned today from a 3 night stay at this wonderful , if a bit pricey, hotel. The situation cannot be bettered with its own terrace overlooking the Grand Canal and St Marks Square a couple of minutes stroll away.The standard room we had was a little small but the facilities and the bathroom were excellent. A very friendly and helpful staff made this a hotel we would return to on a, hopefully, future Venice holiday. The hotel fully opened on 1st April 2004 after a large refit and the small amout of fresco work that is being completed does in not cause any problems what so ever.One tip, take the water bus from the airport to St Marks Square as it drops you a matter of 10 yards from the hotel and is far cheeper, at 10 euros each, than a water taxi at 80 euros. Save the water taxi for the return trip to the airport, that way you get longer to relax on the terrace!
My wife and I have just returned from a 7 night stay at this excellent (but expensive) hotel. The location is fantastic, a step from the waterbus stop from the airport and a short walk to St Mark's Square.
Wonderful Experience at Monaco Grand Hotel
We recently stayed at the Monaco Grand Hotel in Venice. Although the hotel was under construction, it was in it's very last stages. The staff could not have been more helpful. There was absolutely no noise from the contruction. The hotel's decor is modern, although the hotel's restaurant is wonerfully decorated in old world Italian fashion. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant one evening and could not have been more pleased. The restaurant staff was very attentive and the food was fantastic. The hotel is also located very close to the San Marco water taxi stop, which was very convienent. I would highly recommend the Monaco Grand Hotel.
I can agree that the hotel was nicely decorated and very modern. I agree that the location of the hotel is great. In the heart of the shopping district and literally steps away from Piazza San Marco and the Grand Canal.
December 24 2003 We stayed here on our honeymoon. It had just been remodeled and it was a fabulous hotel. The restaurant upstairs was great! If you eat there have any of their desserts!! The remodel was a very modern remod, and the location was superb, seconds off of the Piazza. Just steps from Harry's Bar. I was more than pleased with the service, location, and room. If you have any questions feel free to email me.
What a great hotel!
I stayed at the hotel for a week in july and it was absolutly perfect.
