Hotel Review: Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal, Venice
Close to the Ponte degli Scalzi and with views over the Grand Canal, it's perfectly situated to explore the lesser-known side of Venice. Treat yourself to dinner at La Cupola restaurant or a cocktail on the terrace with views over the Dolomite mountains.
Rooms available from £67.82 per night
Step down the stairs of Venice Santa Lucia train station, cross the Grand Canal and walk only another 200 meters to find the entrance of the hotel. Located in the Santa Croce sestiere of Venice, it's a 15-minute walk to the Rialto Bridge, a 25-minute walk to St Mark's Square and only a seven-minute walk to the Frari Church and the Ghetto. Campo dei Frari, which holds the largest church in Venice, the Basilica S.Maria Gloriosa dei Frari and the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, Tinteretto's masterpiece, is only a seven-minute walk; not to be missed.
By plane: direct flights to Venice from London take 2 hours. Make your way to the hotel by rail, road, boat or water taxi. Book flights to Venice.
THE LOOK AND FEEL
The entrance is decorated in an understated, classic Venetian style, charming in its simplicity with stucco walls painted in pastel colours and mirrored panels. Comfy chairs with low tables invite you to take time to try one or more of Enrico's (the world-class bartender) cocktails or an afternoon coffee.
For a small hotel, there are loads of staff to help you with anything you might require. They love to assist and are house-proud, happy to show the hotel off to anyone who might have a query. Ask anything and they will do their utmost to help, including ideas of what to explore in the area.
