We booked our hotel online from reviews and pictures but you can never be sure what you will actually get. We could not have been more delighted. This hotel is right on the canal and has a small deck on the water where you can sip a glass of wine and view the gondolas in the canal. It was a little difficult to find being we were on foot haven taken the bus from the airport. I would recommend that by the way as the Hotel Grande is on the northern side of Venice and not too far a walk after you get off the bus. It was wonderful to venture on the water buses down to San Marco Square and then be able to get to a more serene location for night time activities. By far the BEST thing at the Grande was the service. Everyone speaks English and makes you feel so welcomed and very special. Rooms were quintessential Italy and I loved that. Our room was in the back building so you might want to request main hotel if available although we enjoyed the quiet and privacy. It was a little small but plenty of space for what we needed. You WILL NOT be disappointed.
