We loved the Bauer Hotel. The room and bathroom were huge (we requested and got an accessible room). However, after staying at the Palazzo on a previous occasion, I could understand why the Palazzo is so much more expensive. The beds and pillows at the Bauer are like concrete! Too bad. However, the service, as always, was superb. I recommend... More

This hotel was simply superb. I picked it based on the great rate I got through the Leading Hotels website and was somewhat hesitant due to the reviews on this site. Now, to be fair, my room got upgraded because I am a member of leader's club. I understand that there is an older wing where maybe the rooms are... More

I stayed at what was then called the Bauer Grunewald with my parents many years ago and decided to stay again to see how much it had changed. Found a good deal with Expedia and can whole-heartedly recommend the hotel under its new ownership and management. Had one of the older rooms but well-maintained and elegant in a classic '50s...

The Bauer hotel gets a bit of an unfair review in most travel books - often referred to as a modern monstrosity; however, that's more than a bit unfair. Yes, it's modern but it doesn't encroach on its space and is fairly unpretentious from the outside. Its location is second to none - overlooking the Grande Canal and a small... More

We stayed a couple of nights at the Bauer - it's definitely time for a re-fresh of the rooms, lobby and exterior. First impressions being what they are, the carpet on the floor of the revolving door is worn, noticed a torn and flapping awning when next door at the Feragamo store and the room was clean but dated -...

The Bauer is somewhat unique in Venice for having a modern front. Reportedly renovated in the late 1990s, I love the modern light fittings, and the water pressure. But the shower unit in 240 needs to be replaced: i) water tends to stand in the shower base and ii) it just looked unappealing with the buildup of calcification on the... More

Stayed here for three summer nights in August. The hotel is great and I think we got a great value (however, it’s expensive but along other 5 stars in Venice it was a good deal). Location is the best, next to San Marco and close to my favorite place in Venice – Dorsoduro. Bauer is absolutely one of the better... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
