The Centurion Palace is the fifth hotel I've stayed at in Venice and by far the best. The location, the hotel itself, the room (401 is almost certainly the best hotel room in the city, unless you need a suite), and the service were all first class. Personally I much prefer the CP's contemporary style to the slightly fusty Gritti... More

This swish hotel is located in a very good spot in Dorsodura. Next to the St Salute vaporetto stop and very close to a Traghetto ferry across the grand canal. Much less busy than some locations. Restaurant and breakfast areas have views along grand canal and a small number of tables out on the deck. Breakfast was included and really... More

If you like boutique-stye hotels, this is your place in Venice. Beautiful and minimalist areas, in an old style building, tastefully decorated. The rooms are nice, with very high ceilings, but the bathroom is not for people who have mobility problems. There are two steps to get in and out of the tub/shower combination, so be careful. Restaurant and breakfast... More

Our ace travel agent Jim Augerinos got us in here back in Sept. 2012 and it was tremendous. A great location to walk just about anywhere. You can stroll along the finger of the island to the outstanding Peggy Guggenheim museum and to quaint and delicious restaurants like Al Vecio Forner and its half carafes of wine, fresh pasta and...

This was a real find. Right on the canal on one side, and tucked away in Dorsodoro near the Guggenheim on the other. A beautiful conversion, with very modern rooms, and stunning bathrooms, this was perfect for a weekend. The room, a standard, was big by Venice standards, very modern and so may not age too well, but real care... More

As others have said this hotel really made our stay in Venice very special. The modern decor may not be to everyone's taste but we utterly loved it. We didn't have a Grand Canal view (much more expensive!) but we had a top floor room with views across the Venetian rooftops with a glimpse of water in the distance. It... More

This hotel was a highlight for our extended trip to Italy, Germany and Austria. The entire staff could not have been more accommodating during our four night stay. Special thanks to Emanuele for his assistance and recommendations for our many excursions from the Centurion Palace. His recommendation to amend our itinerary to visit Burano was the best advice we received... More

We booked here on the recommendation of friends who stayed at Centurion. Let me start by saying that the Concierge desk were marvellous at arranging a variety of reservations for us well before we arrived. Very efficient team, most helpful, friendly, and nothing to hard attitude. I like that. Special mention to Emanuele Vio, who I communicated with for some... More

We chose this hotel because we like the modern rooms and we had concerns with regard to old style drapes and furnishings at some of the other hotels. Two of us have severe allergies and we had no problems. The courtyard is nice and we had drinks overlooking the canal. Several locals said this is the best hotel in Venice.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights (which was plenty of time for us in Venice). Loved the location - away from the major tourist crowd areas. We stayed in a 2-floor suite, room 502. It had amazing views overlooking the Grand Canal and the Santa Maria della Salute church. Downstairs was a small living room and the small bathroom. Upstairs was... More
