We arrived by night on a water taxi and sped through the Grand Canal, this was such an awesome sight. Everywhere we looked there were historical imposing buildings. The architectural wonders were just awe inspiring. The hotel location is ideal, right on the Grand Canal with wide sweeping views of the grand city. We had a 6th Floor corner suite... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend on his 21st birthday and it was absolutely perfect. The Bauer delivers luxury service, from their very polite and efficient staff, excellent breakfast, amazing concierge and turn-down service. The room are a little old and not as luxurious as they could be. The bed sheets were a little rough and not very soft and... More

The location is superb! We had a Jr Suite overlooking the Grand Canal with a small balcony for 2. The view was fabulous. The hotel concierge had pre-arranged a private water-taxi for pick up from the airport. The arrival was so memorable and the check-in effortless. We took breakfast every morning on the 7th floor with stunning views of Venice...this... More

We arrived in the early evening by private water taxi and the next three days were amazing. I was our daughter's 50th birthday and was her birthday treat. Both myself and my husband and our daughter and son in law had lagoon/canal views and a two beautiful bedroom suites. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the bathroom was to die... More

Truly an anachronistic throwback to another era of attentive, professional and formal service. Michele was indicative of a fantastic staff that made one feel pampered and cared for. While it isn't inexpensive, as none of Venice is, the Bauer delivers in every way making dinner reservations and organizing magnificent tours. It all allows one to feel transported to another time...

If you have the urge to splurge, this is the place for you. A old style, classic 'palace' hotel, with absolutely the best location one could have in Venice. We had a room on the 5th floor with a terrace overlooking the grand canal.. views of magnificent monuments, boats and gondolas, even the occasional ship..You step out of the completely... More

My Wife and I stayed here for our 1st Wedding Anniversary, the staff, the hotel, the location and the food were perfect. One of the best places I have ever stayed. Nothing was too much trouble, they have their own peer for boats and impeccable standards. The breakfast terrace overlooking the Grand Canal took our breaths away.

The 82 luxurious rooms including 38 suites, many with balconies or terraces, have been recently restored with the finest fabrics, gilt mirrors, carved stucco ceilings and Murano glass chandeliers. Located on the top floors of the historic palace guests have the option of staying in one of Bauer Il Palazzo’s re-designed rooms or executive suites.
