Il Palazzo is in the perfect location in the San Marco area of Venice. Close to La Fenice (opera house) Harry's Bar and of course St Marks sq. Its bar and restaurant look directly on to the Grand Canal. If you can afford the upgrade to a room with a view it is well worth it . Free shuttle accross... More

Old world luxury, Sophia Lauren, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn kind of charm. Spent a couple of nights in a room with a view of the grand canal and Basilica di Santa Maria. Breakfast is served on the top floor (indoors and outdoor terrace) with a great view, make sure you don't miss it. Great location being a short walk away... More

You couldn't find a better hotel in Venice: great location close to St Marks Square (2 minutes) & overlooking the Grand Canal. There are actually 2 Bauer's - a 1940's hotel accessed from the street, which backs onto the 18c Palazzo, which is accessed from the Grand Canal. The Palazzo is magnificent. The reception staff are lovely, welcoming & extremely... More

This hotel was in a perfect location, a few minutes from the Vaporeto and St. Mark's Square, and with great views. Even though our room was not facing the Grand canal, it still had fabulous views. The courteous, professional and friendly manner of all staff was notable. Dining room staff presiding over the excellent breakfast buffet were efficient and pleasant.

We stayed at this hotel in October 2014. Very good location at the entrance of the Grand Canale providing a beautiful view at its main restaurant where breakfast is also served. The hotel is at the same time just a few steps walk from the Piazzo San Marco, hence very convinient for historical attractions as well as shops/restaurants. (An impressive... More

We stayed 4 nights at Bauer Il Palazzo over the Easter holidays. Let me start with the positives. The hotel is exceptionally well located and has an outstanding service attitude. All staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the concierge in particular. We had made some reservations for dinner in various restaurants recommended in the Luxe guide and others but still...

A Christmas present from my husband I returned to Venice after many years and stayed at this wonderful hotel. They organised our transfer from the Airport to the Hotel by means of luxury car and private boat so we arrived gently and elegantly via the Grand Canal to the door of the Bauer. Check-in was smooth and within 10 mins... 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.
