The Elma Hotels consist of 4 superb hotels - Antica Casa Hotel Carettoni, Hotel Atlantide and Hotel Basilea – all located in the highly renowned Cannaregio district of Venezia. This district is famous for its stunning architecture and vibrant atmosphere, but also because of its ideal location between the city centre and the main train station. From the locations of these four hotels, guests are within walking distance of the Ponte degli Scalzi and Rialto bridges, not-to-mention the proximity of the Grand Canal and Piazzale Roma. Not only is the location of the Elma Hotels perfect, but the facilities themselves are great value for money. The owners of the hotels take the approach of providing the services of a much larger hotel but with a personal touch more synonymous with smaller establishments. This ethos is taken through with the facilities in addition to the services with rooms commonly having air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, international satellite TV, high speed internet connections, safes, direct dial phones and minibar (depending on the particular hotel). The facilities are warm, friendly, clean and all of the staff are highly attentive.
