Little Venice
The Colonnade Hotel

Within the heart of London, away from the hustle and bustle of busy streets and internationally-renowned monuments, lays the tranquil area of Little Venice. Here, between the winding canals, lined with colourful houseboats and charming restaurants and cafes is The Colonnade Hotel.

Little Venice is a triangular area within the select neighbourhood called Maida Vale, where the Gran Union Canal and Regent’s Canal are joined. Its origins go back to ancient times, with traders using the canal – which winds into the heart of the city – to transport goods to sell. Little Venice is not a copy of Venice in Italy; however, with its serene waterway with its boat tours within a peaceful atmosphere, one can imagine to be in the real Venice.

From Little Venice, you can purchase a ticket for the Waterbus which runs through to Camden, whilst passing through London Zoo and Regents Park. Please ask our Reception for further information on how to purchase tickets.
