The Venetian districts of Cannaregio and Santa Croce can get overlooked by the more glamourous sestieri of San Marco and Dorsoduro, but they hold some of Venice's treasures that deserve your attention. One of those treasures is the Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal. Its super-convenient location directly across the canal from Santa Lucia station makes it the ideal hotel for those arriving by train. The warm, welcoming staff are there to make your trip to Venice memorable. You'll want to spend the evening sipping a spritz watching the sunset from the gorgeous Top of the Carlton Sky Lounge overlooking the Dolomites, or savoring the lobster spaghetti at La Cupola restaurant.



We love that there are almost no tourists in this part of Venice.

Located in the Santa Croce sestiere, across the canal from Santa Lucia train station. Walk 15 minutes to the Rialto Bridge and 25 to Piazza San Marco.
By plane: direct flights to Venice from London take 2 hours. Make your way to the hotel by rail, road, boat or water taxi.
