This, my third trip to Venice was sheer enjoyment from the moment we landed and took a private water taxi from the airport direct to our hotel. I've been on the gondolers before and though they are very nice and romantic if there's only the two of you, having your own taxi cutting though the water is the only way to travel to your hotel.
Our visit to the the Palazzo Stern was brilliant from the start to finish. I booked the hotel using some frequent flyer miles but this only gave me a standard room so I contacted the hotel two weeks before my stay and upgraded the room to a deluxe. This cost an extra €100 ($130) per night but was worth it.
The front of house team were excellent, always smiling and willing to answer any question. They recommended 3 good restaurants nearby the hotel. The housekeeping team were just as good; rooms always tidy and clean. The bathroom was a good size and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was very enjoyable; just help yourself to the food or ask the team to get you something special.
The square just 30 seconds away from the hotel had a really busy cafe but we always found somewhere to sit and the prices were very cheap and food was excellent.
I'd go back to the Palazzo Stern anytime,
