Good Location for cruise passengers Oct 03, 2013
Hotel is located close to the main bus terminal (Pizalle Roma) and People Mover for cruise passengers. You do have to cross over two small bridges to get to the hotel but there are also porters available at Pizalle Roma who are willing to transport your luggage for you at a reasonable price (10 Euro for 2 pieces of luggage). Do not take the large bridge with the zillion of steps (Scali Bridge) as this will take you on the opposite side of the canal. Take the small bridge by the Chiara Hotel. Hotel was nicely decorated with a large lobby, adjoining bar/restaurant and breakfast area. Hotel is 4 stories high with a roof top lounge called "Top of the Carlton." Rooms are very small but nicely furnished. We had a canal view room which was nice to watch the gondolas/water taxi's go by on the Grand Canal. Once you close the shutters, you do not hear any noise from the canal traffic. The hotel faces the Santa Lucia Train Station as well as the Ferrovia Water Bus stop. Staff was friendly and service efficient. There was a good selection of breakfast items and wifi was available in the lobby. Book your reservations directly with the hotel to take advantage of hotel specials.

Walking distance Jul 19, 2008
There are no cars in Venice. I only made that connection when asking a taxi driver at the bus drop-off point from the airport to take me to the hotel: "I cannot take you there, it is in Venice." Fortunately, the bus depot is just a few minutes walk (albeit crossing two canal bridges) to the hotel. But trust me, it is much easier to walk to the hotel than to take a water ferry to a hotel further down the canal as they are overcrowded and have a baggage limit (1 bag per person). The hotel is old but clean. Our room overlooked the Grand Canal, but it was pretty small and the television (just fyi...there is a lot to see in Venice that you don't need to watch TV) did not have any English-language channels. The breakfast in the back courtyard was probably the nicest hotel breakfast I had on my trip and the setting is quite peaceful. And the hotel's positioning at the start of the water ferry system makes getting around easy.

Pros: Easy to get to from the bus or train drop-off areas.

Cons: No elevator/lift in the hotel.

Restaurant Tip: The restaurant directly in front of the hotel seems to stay open later than most places but is not noisy for guests who sleep early.
