Check my top 3 Canal hotel Venice

Home >  Venice Italy Hotels >  Canal Hotel Venice >

A canal hotel Venice Italy. I thought there is no problem to book a canal hotel and to choose from. But I was wrong. 

My search for a nice canal hotel was more difficult than I thought. Which hotel do you choose from my list? 

There are plenty of hotels facing the Grand Canal. 

But what is my favorite...


Top 3 Canal Hotel Venice next to the Grand Canal

Hotel Rialto Venice

No. 14 star Hotel Rialto is located next to Rialto Bridge. It has traditionally decorated Venetian rooms. The location is ideal, the water bus stops right in front of this canal hotel.

Piazza San Marco is 656 yards away. Great view, at least when you book a more expensive room overlooking the Grand Canal.

The multilingual staff at Hotel Rialto gave me a warm welcome. They helped me with the 2 suitcases I had to carry. The air conditioning works sufficiently, without noise. Windows close properly, so no external noise. Breakfast more than adequate. And you can eat on the terrace along the water. The hotel is well worth your money. Check rates >

Hotel Canal Grande Venice Italy

No. 2: Venice, its canals… and its Canal Grande Hotel What do you think about this 4 star Canal hotel? It has its name… ‘Canal Grande Hotel’.

Just renovated in its 18th century Venetian style. This hotel is facing the Grand Canal, located in a small aristocratic residence in a central location in Venice.

Enjoy the spacious and luxurious rooms and suites. Relax with a drink on the small terrace of the hotel and enjoy the view across the Grand Canal. This Hotel has its own dock so you can quickly hump on a water taxi or gondola. Check rates >

Canal hotel Venice ‘Boscolo Bellini’

No. 3: Canal hotel Venice ‘Boscolo Bellini’ is a perfect hotel in a perfect location, very helpful reception! I had a spacious newly renovated rooms, brand new.

Boscolo Bellini is located in a historic building near Cannareggio in a former noble residential. My own interest was focused on the antique furniture and marble bathrooms. Very nice! Some rooms overlook the Grand Canal.

It is not in the best reach of the St. Mark’s Square, but in a nice and busy area. All within walking distance of Piazza Roma where you will find the buses and taxis. And it is a 2 minute walk from the Santa Lucia train station. Check rates >
