Travellers' Choice
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"!!

Everything and everyone at the Hotel Canal Grande was excellent! My friends and I stayed in two different suites. Each suite was beautifully decorated and pristine. The colors and materials in each room was top quality. Our view of the canal from our room was spectacular. Breakfast was amazing. The selection of food was outstanding. During the time of Covid I loved the fact that breakfast was served but still had a buffet style appeal. The staff allowed you to choose what you wanted to eat and how much. We were able to fill up before going out to explore Venice. On the day we had to fly out back home, the staff thoughtfully prepared us a breakfast bag to eat on our way to the airport. If you have any Covid concerns, the staff follows all recommended protocals. We felt very safe and cared for staying at Hotel Canal Grande. I highly recommend this hotel and plan to stay there again on my next visit to Venice.

We had a romantic stay in this hotel. The crew was very friendly and competent. The breakfast was also very good and in time of COVID-19 perfect organized! The view to Canale Grande with the different boats in traffic was very impressive.

Everything was perfect, nicely decorated room, really clean and everything worked. Super breakfast choice. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Hotel is easy to find, close the the railway station but in a quiet courtyard. Perfect location to explore Venice from.

We have been to Hotel Canal Grande for the seventh time. Staff are now considered friends, location is superb, cleanliness is immaculate. Will be back again for sure. My wife and I consider Hotel Canal Grande as our home in Venice. Back home in Malta after our last visit, we remain full of warm and happy memories. This time, we ventured on a boat trip to Burano. Weather helped, but the visit was fantastic.
