A plush hotel on the iconic Grand Canal, with a waterfront entrance – includes breakfast and a dining discount

As its name suggests, Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal sits canalside in the uniquely captivating city of Venice. This luxurious four-star hotel puts you right on the water and invites you to see Venice as it was meant to be seen. With a vaporetto (water taxi) stop and the Santa Lucia train station just steps away, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better base for navigating the city's narrow, labyrinthine streets and winding waterways.

Inside this magnificent hotel, you'll find strikingly elegant and refined interiors adorned with intricate Venetian plasterwork, Murano glass wall lamps and gilt-edged furniture. Sumptuous 18th-century Venetian style continues throughout the rooms, with silk-damask-dressed walls and glass chandeliers serving as exquisite centerpieces. Even the roof of the hotel is stylish, where you’ll find Top of the Carlton Sky Lounge, with its mouthwatering menu of cocktails and delectable Venetian and Mediterranean treats.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €4.50 per person, per night is payable directly to the hotel upon check-out.

Also note that The Top Of The Carlton Sky Lounge will be closed during the winter months.
