This is a 18th century Palazzo, right on the waterfront of the Canale Grande, which is why the hotel is named like this. The hotel is defining itself as small boutique hotel, giving it a special charm. It has a nice lobby with a fireplace, a special breakfast room, a bar with view of the Canale Grande with a terrace facint the waterfront. The rooms are very elegant, old Venetian style – very very beautiful, however you have to like the style – they are certainly nothing for the modern thinking travelers. The rooms have wooden floors, which is a rather unusual thing in Venice.
The Hotel Canale Grande is at the entrance of Venice as I call it – right at the beginning of the islands, coming from the main land. Close to Piazalle Roma and across the Canale Grande from the Railway station Santa Lucia. It truly is an ideal place for discovering the island of Venice. The hotel can be easily reached by the Venetian water taxis, the Vaporettos. It is easy to return to the hotel from no matter which location on the island, late in the evening.
