This hotel is really fantastic, the rooms are sumptuous without being stuffy. Stunning location just of the Grand Canal. We had breakfast on the terrace every morning just amazing. Will be back to Venice again but will try somewhere else but if its a first time visit I would recommend this Hotel very highly.

I hesitated for a long time before choosing the Bauer Il Palazzo because I had very high expectations and was not disappointed: it’s a real 5 star Palazzo and it’s location 2 minutes away from the Piazza San Marco is ideal to discover Venice (and the view on the Grand Canal is great). The Bauer Il Palazzo should not be... More

Arrival by water taxi was wonderful! and being ushered into the quaint lobby was great. We had booked a deluxe room with a view. We were taken to room 103 on the first floor. The room was very elegant, but the view was only really available if you had your head out of the window!! Shortly after arrival water started... More

We really enjoyed staying at the Bauer. We were only in Venice for 2 nights so being near the crowded St. Mark's square didn't bother us because it made it easier to access the main sights. I probably liked the "old world charm" of this hotel more than my husband, who would've preferred to more modern part of the Bauer... More

The Bauer Palazzo looks beautiful on their sketchy website. It seems to be ideally situated on the Grand Canal near St Mark's Square. BUT: 1) the location is hectic and noisy, swarmed by cruise ship day-trippers and tour groups 2) the rooms are old and dilapidated 3) the staff, particualrly the front desk and concierges, tend to be haughty, arrogant...

The hotel was very nice, we were upgraded to a room with a fantastic view. The staff was gracious and helpful. My only complaint is that it is very confusing finding your way around the hotel. It is quite large, and to make things more confusing it is linked to the sister hotel (which seems more modern). There are no... More

This was the first stop on our honeymoon, which was in 2004, but the site would only let me go back to 2010. The room was absolutely gorgeous. We had a large room with a lagoon view. The bathroom was wonderfully large, the room was very large and spacious. The staff could not have been nicer. We loved everything about... More

We stayed for 3 nights and loved every minute. Breakfast on the 7th floor terrace is a treat. Rooms were spacious (junior Suite) and beds were great. Clean and comfortable - makes you want to stay in your room a bit longer. Very friendly and helpful Service. Excellent location for every Kind of activity in Venice. Looking forward to our... More

I spent 3 nights there last May. The service wasn't outstanding, but good. The only flaw I found was that they had only one computer with a printer that wasn't working and the staff wasn't very helpful. It took me more than one hour to finally get my boarding pass printed. Unacceptable for a hotel of this level. The location... More

After consideration of Danieli, Gritti, Cipriani and the Bauer options, we opted for Bauer Il Palazzo, mostly because so many recent reviewers found the rooms in Danieli and Gritti in need of refurbishing, because Cipriani is on the "wrong" side of the Grand Canal, and because Il Palazzo appears to be the best of the Bauer options ... and we...
