Third stay here, still a great handy hotel from Piazza LaRoma. Very clean and helpful staff.
Negative points, Shower water pressure terrible at times and bathroom looked shabby with the broken tiles.
Great breakfast choice from the Buffet
I booked a Superior Double room with Grand Canal view and was very happy with the room. There had been a bit of a mix-up (my fault) before I arrived. I had originally booked and then cancelled the room. I then rebooked and I was...More

Location is perfect. Opposite the train station and around the corner from the bus station. The vaporetto is also opposite. It was easy to find our way back too after getting lost in Venice many times, just follow 'Piazzale Roma' signs and you can't go...More
We booked Venice as it was on my bucket list .. And am glad we did.
The hotel's front of office is opulent and the staff cannot do enough for you, all speak clear English. The decor is traditional and opulent without overkill.
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.

I am not sure how far the Hotel Carlton is from the airport, but by bus, the airport is about 10 minutes. The bus stop is just few yards from the hotel. Very easy. There is no trick, and the bus is easy, but make sure to double check to see that you are on the right bus. The bus tickets are quite inexpensive and have luggage racks. Sorry I can't remember the exact price per ticket.
No need to book trips. You can get around easy on foot, or water bus. The city is not big, but it is exciting. Go in the Doge's Palace in St Marks Square. Not expensive. Fantastic ceilings, great armoury displays. You get to... More
No need to book trips. You can get around easy on foot, or water bus. The city is not big, but it is exciting. Go in the Doge's Palace in St Marks Square. Not expensive. Fantastic ceilings, great armoury displays. You get to walk over the Bridge of Sighs on the inside on your way to walking round the prison. A good half day, well spent.
