This exclusive hotel is ideally located right on the Grand Canal just down from the Ponte degli Scalzi bridge in a 15th century palazzo called the "Calbo-Crotta". Without a doubt, this is one of the finest Gothic buildings to be found on the Grand Canal and is now the home of the Hotel Principe. Inside this palazzo everything has been tastefully refurbished whilst retaining the original features. Facilities in each of the 148 bedrooms, most of which overlook the Grand Canal, include air conditioning, minibar, satellite TV, hairdryer, direct dial telephone, radio and room safe. However, the best features of this hotel have to be the `Marco Polo` piano bar and the high class `Il Principe` restaurant both of which overlook the Grand Canal - this has to be one of the best views in the world!
