Stayed here for 3 nights in late November. We are frequent visitors to the city and our preference is to visit off season. We have previously stayed at the Bauer Palladio on Giudecca. Bauer Palazzo is situated just a couple of minutes walk from St Marks Square, (nearest vaporetto stop San Marco Valleresso.) We booked a junior suite (115) which... More

In September after a weeklong cruise to the Greek Isles, we spent a few days at the Bauer IL Palazzo in Venice (the old hotel, not the modern one in front).

Having booked 3 rooms for our twin daughters 21st Birthday, we thought that upon arrival the staff would have offered us a welcome drink, as seems to be the norm for other guests. After reading other reviews we expected the breakfast to be outstanding, but it was very average and served on side plates, which seems rather mean. Yes the... More

Absolutely stunning 360 panoramic view from the terrace at breakfast, at least two floors higher up than neighbouring buildings. Literally next to Piazza San Marco, making it super easy to find your way back from anywhere within the delightful Labyrinth that is Venice. Around 12 mins walk to the famous Rialto bridge and Rialto market area, which has some excellent... More

Had a fantastic stay at Bauer Il Palazzo. We arrived before check-in: no problem to leave bags (full hotel the night before, so no early check-in), and water, OJ or prosecco offered to us (and are available to guests for free during the day - though I could only see water by early evening).

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

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
