We wanted a reasonably priced four star hotel preferably situated by one of Venice's canals. The Hotel Canal Grande fitted the bill perfectly. Its situated about 300 yards east of the railway station on the southern bank of the Grand Canal. It has its own landing stage so we were able to take a water taxi directly from the airport to the hotel - the perfect way to start a Venetian holiday. The welcome we received from the hotel staff was warm, friendly and helpful. Our rooms were good sized with the cheapest mini bars I have come across anywhere in the world. We were pointed to good restaurants, provided with a free trip to Murano (worth doing if you want to buy expensive glassware) and although no one goes to Venice to stay in a hotel a secure comfortable and welcoming base is essential and that's what the Hotel Canal Grande provides.
You step straight from the airport taxi into the front door of this wonderful hotel to be greeted with a glass of Prosecco. What a great introduction to Venice. The staff a friendly and helpful, the breakfasts are varied and generous with a cooked option and the rooms are modern if not large. Highly recommended.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel and the service and facilities were unreal!!! If you are going to venice book with them they were so helpful and polite. St marks is steps away and Rialto bridge is just as close. We will be booking with them again in the future!
This is a clean quiet hotel in a lovely quiet and beautiful part of Venice, Sant Elena. The rooms are pleasant, the staff is nice, and the location is simply perfect for a stay in Venice. Go to San Marco or San Polo for the best Venice has to offer, but come to Sant Elena to relax and sleep well.
