In the half-term holidays, my family and I went to Venice and stayed in the Bauer Hotel. It was excellent. We were treated like royalty; the staff were excellent especially when we asked them where the good restaurants are and when we went to the place the food was to die for! The rooms were very clean and posh but... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with our children at the end of June. We had two connecting rooms which were very nice and large. We arrived early and our rooms were ready which was a very pleasant surprise. The staff was excellent and the concierge was very helpful. The hotel is in a great location just 2-3 minutes from...

Impeccably clean and Old World quaint, the hotel shines. The staff took excellent care of me. Location and attitude make it one of the best. I especially enjoyed the food and service at the seventh floor outdoor breakfast restaurant.

My husband and I stayed here with our 4 year old son for four nights last February hoping to avoid as many tourists as possible. Upon arrival, we were greeted and escorted to our room and our hostess was lovely and covered our every need. We enjoyed breakfast every morning on the upper level and the ladies who attended breakfast... More

Spent two nights and although on the pricey side, it was worth it! Our room was very spacious and decorated in that Venetian Rococo style so be ready for ornate! The hotel felt intimate and the location cannot be beat - 5 minutes from San Marco and right on the Grand Canal. The view from the rooftop is absolutely spectacular... More

The only place that was nice about this Hotel was where the breakfast and dinner was served, overlooking the water and the location was good. However my room was old, smelled moldy, bad reception on TV, bathroom was dull so if a female needed extra lighting for hair and make-up, forget it. My view was of a very high wall... More

We stayed here for just one night in June 2014. We had an upgraded room from AMEX with a free dinner and free breakfast. Our room was a suite with a living room, bedroom and luxurious bathroom.

The location is fantastic but the unfriendly demeanor of the staff and somewhat tired nature of the rooms makes one conclude that this hotel is not worth the price. Probably many better options in this beautiful city.

Dear guest, I regret we did not fulfill your expectations on occasion of your recent visit at IL PALAZZO. Built as a hotel in 1860, our property was modeled after the ancient Venetian Palaces flanking the Grand Canal and in the eyes of many of our affectionate clients this is our beauty and charm. I do appreciate the fact, however,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bauer Il Palazzo is one of Venice’s most luxurious hotel. It is an authentic 18th century palazzo with the most spectacular vantage point in Venice - close to St Mark’s Square, facing the Grand Canal and overlooking St Mark’s basin. 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. The interior design concept of the guest accommodations on the 6th & 7th & 8th floors is quite distinct; each room is decorated in a unique sleek style, with comfort. ... more   less
