We traveled to Italy for the first time and started our trip in Venice. To say this town is special is the understatement of the day! We were very pleased with our choice of a hotel for two nights and found the hospitality to be outstanding. Every interaction with a hotel worker was friendly and helpful. The location was very convenient, right on a canal, and close to a valpretto stop. The hotel has an elevator which we discovered is not always the norm with many accommodations in Italy. The price wasn’t cheap but the excellent & quiet location, hospitality, and comfortable room made it worth the extra cost.

Hotel's Favourite
This hotel was absolutely perfect for us! We visited Venice with our 2 kids and we couldn’t be happier with the acccommodation, service and location of this hotel. Our family suite had two rooms with sliding doors, one with a double bed and one with two singles, en suite bathroom and a balcony. The breakfast buffet was generous and the staff exceptionally nice. The hotel is in a quiet yet very well served area close to the station, vaporetto etc - perfect balance between quiet and services. Wold stay again!

Very good location, nice staff, clean and comfortable and a good breakfast…half an hour's walk to San Marco square…close to vaporetto station…around the hotel you can take walks along the water, you can relax on a bench, and admire the beauty and the Venetian air... it's as if time stands still on this island... the ideal destination for a city break!

Fantastic hotel with a convenient location! Close to the train station as well. The staff were helpful and welcoming. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms well maintained. We asked for the air-conditioning to be turned on in order to have some air flow through the room to which they obliged to do so. When extra pillows were requested they also promptly provided the extra pillows. Overall will stay again

I'm glad to share that having spent so much time and effort in selecting an accommodation in Venice, Carnival Palace was indeed the best we could have done. To one who would have studied Venice even a wee bit, it would appear that the hotel is located somewhat away from the places where the action is (so as to say). But to us, it was strategically located - besides a wide canal in the district of Cannaregio. It is a short ride by the water taxi from Ferrovia (the train station at Venezia Santa Lucia). Had to avail of one as we were a family of five. Prices range between €60-70. If one wants to walk to the hotel, it's a brisk one under 10 minutes with just one bridge (Tre Archi) to cross. The hotel has all modern amenities including elevators. Upkeep is excellent and the team is responsive. We had two rooms - a Junior Suite with direct front view of the Cannaregio canal and an Economy room which was upgraded to a one with a nice view of the rear courtyard. Checkin was warm and swift. The Junior suite had an expansive settee and lots of space. The bathroom was sizable with a full sized bathtub. The breakfast had a good spread and seating space was available inside as well outside in the courtyard. Service was nippy. A few words on the neighbourhood - we preferred the hotel as it was away from the hustle & bustle of the touristy areas. As you come out of the hotel, a lane along it on the right will take you behind to a nice leafy promenade besides the sea. Lots of benches with splendid views especially of the sunset. From this uncrowded spot, you can spot trains coming in & departing Santa Lucia to the mainland. A number of bars and trattorias dot this neighborhood along another canal (Rio de San Girolamo). From Carnival Palace to St Mark's square, it is a leisurely walk of about half an hour. To get there on a Vaporetto (water bus), you can either walk across to the Ferrovia station (or board a Vaporetto from Tre Archi stop right in front of the hotel) and from there board a Vaporetto to the San Marco Vallaresso stop. All in all, a memorable experience in the Carnival Palace and in the enchanting city of Venice.
