Canal Grande is a charming boutique hotel located in Ca' Polacco, an elegant little palace which has just been restored. The furniture of the hotel is characterised by the elegance of Rococo style, typical of 18th century Venice. The lobby with its rose marble fireplace, the breakfast room with its golden mirrors, and the bar with its Venetian red velvet armchairs overlook the Grand Canal and are the best places where to begin and end a day! The small terrace on the Grand Canal gives our Guests the possibility to have a drink in a special setting and to "breathe the air of the canal"!!

My partner and I went to Venice and stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. We checked in and room was ready at 12 midday! Very friendly staff and room was very Venetian. A little small but great location on canal. Comfortable beds and good breakfast. Would definitely go back and stay

Excellent service with an everyday smile. The morning buffet had almost everything a traveller could ask for and the reception was always available for suggestions and clarifications. Not to mention that the room was being cleaned everyday.

I stayed here with my daughter last year, and booked in Last minute.com. Unfortunately when we arrived we found we were in an adjoining building which was more like an apartment block. No soul or atmosphere. I complained as it was not mentioned in the booking, and my daughter

I was satisfied about this hotel. Because staff were kind and the room was comfortable and clean. 객실도 깨끗하고 직원도 매우 친절해서 좋았습니다 조식도 만족스러웠습니다 역에서도 가까워서 위치도 좋고 전체적으로 만족스러웠습니다 체크아웃할 때 현금으로 9유로를 결제해야 해서 현금 준비하셔야합니다

Dear Ejevans6, we thank you for your inquiry. We inform you that our hotel is located in Santa Croce area. We are 15/20 minutes' walk from Rialto Bridge, the most important bridge of Venice and 30 minutes' walk from Saint Mark's Square. You can join these two sightseeing points like others in the city also using private water taxi (the hotel has its own jetty where to start) o by Vaporetto, the public water bus. Then the hotel is only few minutes' walk from the main points of arrival in Venice, like Piazzale Roma (if you arrive by car or by bus from the airport) and Santa Lucia railway station. This saves you precious time to spend instead to sightseeing. If you like to book your stay at our hotel, please contact us directly to get best accommodation and rates. In the meantime, we remain, Kind regards. Chiara - Reception

The public water taxi system is awesome!! It was a first for my wife and I are but we didn't find any problem navigating our way to the hotel. The people at the ticket sale counters are very helpful when getting a water pass. I would recommend getting a water taxi pass for the duration of your stay, it's easy to hop on and hop off traveling anywhere through the grand Canal is a piece a cake… And a lot of fun. We came in with a rental car and traveled the water taxis to the hotel. As I recall it was about three stops from the car rental agency on the north east side of the island and just one stop after the train station. Walking from the water taxi line to the hotel less than three minutes... and going from the train station to the hotel you'll actually float on by the hotel. I was a little intimidated in the planning stages of our trip but found it pretty straightforward. I hope this helps
