I read some of the reviews and was a little nervous to say the least.
Please do not believe them. Think Venice and you have to think of the old fashioned Venetian Era. The hotel is like that. Opulent decoration in the entrance and restaurant....More
The hotel has a very good location for late arrival as it's just in front of the St. Lucia train station. If you like the Venice style you will like the room design. The bed is comfortable, the room was clean and the bathroom was...More

This hotel is very easy to access no matter where you are arriving from. The train station is directly opposite, with the bus and cruise terminals in easy reach. The rooms are stylish and decorated in a traditional style. They are rather small, but very...More
As this trip was for our 25th Wedding Anniversary we decided to go romantic and book a room with a view so opted for a Junior Suite with a view of the Grand Canal and on as high a floor as possible.
We got exactly...More
This was our second stay at this hotel. We had a room facing the Grand Canal. The view was very picturesque, and to be on the Grand Canal, not as crowded as spots closer to the Rialto bridge. Restaurants and shopping was nearby and we...More
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.
