A plush Venice hotel sitting pretty on the edge of the Grand Canal, offering refined luxury and amazing views – includes an optional dinner with entertainment during the Carnival of Venice 2018

As its name suggests, Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal sits water-side in the uniquely captivating city of Venice. With a vaporetto (water taxi) stop and the Santa Lucia train station within striking distance, it would be a challenge to find a better base for navigating the city's labyrinthine narrow streets and ebbing waterways.

Stepping inside, you'll find strikingly elegant and refined interiors clad in intricate Venetian plasterwork, with Murano glass wall lamps and gilt-edged furniture adding the finishing touches. Sumptuous 1700s Venetian style continues on throughout the rooms, which feature walls dressed in silk damask; Murano glass chandeliers provide exquisite ceiling centrepieces.

The Top Of The Carlton Sky Lounge is a place to see and be seen, offering a mouth-watering menu of cocktails to wash down delectable Venetian and Mediterranean menus. The domed, arched and spired city skyline provides the perfect backdrop.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €4.50 is payable directly to the hotel.

Please note that The Top Of The Carlton Sky Lounge will be closed during the winter months.

Opt to stay during the Carnival of Venice 2018, held from 27 January to 13 February 2018, to enjoy an incredible entertainment-filled aperitif and dinner at the hotel. For more information about each individual event, please click here.
