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"!!

Hi Is this hotel a little too far out from the main square or did this not seem a problem. Many Thanks
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

"My mother uses a wheelchair so we had a first floor room and had our own patio. "
"The Doge room has a four poster bed and two windows opening on the Grand Canal!"
"The suite was definitely worth the money for the space and luxury. You can opt for a canal view when booking which would be good"
"Suite Canaletto is perfect, facing the Grand Canal. Use earplugs if you sleep light as with the shutters closed you can hear the boats"
"Canal view rooms are the best! "
