We got the Junior suite w/ grand canal view. This corner room was spacious with large windows and had a direct view on the grand canal. Our room was clean and smelt and looked new. The room had very good adjustable air conditioner.The bed was comfortable. The attractions were within 15-20 minutes walking distance or you could take the Vaporetto line 1 which is about 10 min ride to either Rialto or San Marco. The staff were very helpful way beyond our expectations. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. The terrace was beautiful. The free wifi was a little slow but good enough for us.
The bathroom was beautiful, but lacked over head shower and shower curtain. We had to use the hand- held shower head to wash our hair and not having a shower curtain made it impossible to keep the water from splashing every where. The bath tub didn't drain properly even with lowest water pressure. I think they have only one junior suite w/ over head shower which has the side view of the grand canal. The in-room coffee maker was not working but we were informed that we could order coffee from downstairs to be brought up to our room at no cost. Several months ago another reviewer mentioned the same thing about the coffee maker.
We took the Alilaguna orange line from airport all the way to the hotel and it took us about 1 hour. It stops right by the hotel ( Ca' Rizzonico stop). You can hear the big boats stop every 10-15 minutes from your room. But that's what you get if you want the nice Grand canal view. I had ear-plugs and "white noise maker" app on my phone which I used at night. If you like a quieter room you should get one in the back of the hotel. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Palazzo stern thanks to very nice staff and I recommend it 100%.
