Fantastic Hotel, Fantastic Location.
Posted Mar 24, 2017
We had a lovely stay at the Bauer Palazzo. The hotel has a fantastic location, backing onto the Grand Canal and only a couple of minutes stroll to St. Mark’s Square. Gondola trips leave from right beside the hotel entrance (and this is a must-do when you are here).
The staff were very pleasant and helpful and even left a bottle of bubbly for my wife’s birthday, which was lovely surprise as we hadn’t informed them so they must have realised from the passport or perhaps the birthday cards in the room.
The breakfast was very good, lots of fresh fruits as well as the usual cooked breakfast and the chef’s cakes were an added bonus. The breakfast room looks out onto the Grand Canal – a fantastic setting.
The toiletries in the room were all organic, made by women prisoners as part of their rehabilitation.
One small criticism is the hotel bar is very expensive, but then Venice is an expensive place overall, but you can find good value restaurants in the streets around St. Mark’s Square.
I would certainly recommend the Bauer Palazzo Hotel to anyone and would stay here again if we ever return to Venice.
