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.

You can take a water taxi from the hotel to the airport. I was told there was walking involved at the airport from where the water taxi drops you off. I opted to take a land taxi to the airport. It was about a 10 to 15 minutes walk from the hotel to the land taxi, but it took me right to the terminal. I have a bad knee so I walk slower than most people and I hired a porter (25 euro) to take our luggage to the land taxi (porters are all over Venice). The driver would have helped with 1 suitcase but we don't travel light. I think it was about 50 Euro for the taxi. The only thing I do remember is that it was still cheaper for a land taxi and porter than a water taxi and maybe less walking (that was important to me).

head for the bus info/ticket office. You can purchase return tickets for both inward and outward journeys there. Bus terminus is not far from the hotel but be careful, you do not want to go over the main Bridge but the smaller one (staying on the r/h side of the canal main canal). Crossing a second much smaller bridge and walking a few hundred yards will bring you to the Carlton.

You have a choice of bus, train or water taxi. All can be booked once you arrive in the terminal. We opted for the water taxi even though it was the most expensive. We booked in advance thru Trip Advisor. It takes you directly to a dock in front of the hotel. If you have heavy luggage, this is perhaps the easiest choice. There is a train connection also. It connect to the train station that is directly opposite the Hotel on the other side of the canal. There is a foot bridge with steps so be forewarned if you have heavy luggage. We used the train for our onward trip to Bologna and it was very convenient. We did not use the bus so can not comment on that as the others here have done. If you have light luggage, this would be the cheapest option.
