Just arrived. Nothing like the pictures we saw on their website. We are on the first floor. Windows open into a dark alley. Absolutely no view. We might as well have booked a room in the alley. Looks nothing like the pictures I saw. Dont...More
Wonderful location on the Grand Canal of Venice! Walk out from the train station and there it is! The lobby is a mix of grand and modern. Most of the front staff speak English, but it seems hectic. Rooms were small but comfortable.
Stayed at this property twice in August for two single nights. Loved the place, its not modern or flash but the décor is typically Venice. We loved it and would stay again given the opportunity. Reception and Service staff were exceptional, spoke perfect English and...More
We're not seasoned travellers however Hotel Carlton was perfect for us. First stop on a month long tour of Italy and so handy to shopping all public transport and walk anywhere. Water taxi from the airport for $110 euro and then carry the bags across...More
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.
