“Teh Beginning of a Great Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We arrived at The Bauer Hotel San Marco on Sat the 13th of October for a two night stay prior to sailing on Princess for a Med cruise. This hotel has the highest standards. Our room was exceptional. Great windows with electric blinds. Turn down service, good toiletries. Bottled water furnished.
We had an excellent breakfast overlooking The Grand Canal each morning. Very good drinks in the bar. Good service at the reception area and the Concierge. We travel a great deal but since neither of us has royal blood I guess those who expect to be treated royally would find us extremely boring. If we are lucky enough to ever return to Venice I would not consider any other hotel!

Room Tip: We booked a 6 hour private tour with The Venice Experience. Well worth every dollar if you can affor...

An extraordinary experience... we booked the last moment... we arrived with a delay, and no suitcases... they gave us all necessities... were extremely polite... our room was spacious, bright, with acute balcony overlooking the square and the water... excellent cuisine, and wonderful breakfast by the water, watching the gondolas going by... moments of absolute peace and silence... excellent amenities... top room maintanance... quaint little bar, with excellent soft dancing music... amemory to last a life time!!! we hope to go back some day...

Room Tip: stay at the old building, closer to the square, not at the sea front (might smell at times)

We're a gay couple who stayed at the Bauer one night before our Regent cruise on 10/17/2012. The hotel was excellent, in a great location and, like another reviewer stated, the concierge Carlo was very helpful to suggest a walking tour and restaurants. Internet was free and we had no problems connecting.

The location of the hotel is perfect--one end on the canal and the other across from Prada and a block from St. Marks. Take the private water taxi for the experience from the airport, but take the Alilaguna to your ship or back to the airport (16 euros vs. 110).

The breakfast buffet was included and was fantastic. We'll definitely stay there again. Do Paolin's for lunch.

Bring a converter for your iphone/ipad chargers.

Hotel looking good, but costumer services are TERRIBLE!!
You also pay for wireless internet and pray to works because 90% of the hotel doesn't .
I tried to make a collect call after 11PM, and was not operator in the hotel!! And nobody knew how to do it!!
Have to change the room because the gave us one just bellow the bells of the church!
Front desk and bellmen are rude!
We will not come back at all!

Room Tip: Take the room with channel view if you have to stay there!

August in Venice is not what I would usually choose as a favorite time to visit. With a multi-family group and school age children, there was no choice. Muggy, very hot and full of people, Venice is still beautiful. Bauer has fantastic air-conditioned interior spaces and the Bauer Concierge, Carlo Salini, was kind, helpful, and exceptional at reading our needs. Our rooms were great, the breakfast on the Grand Canal was a high point and Carlo found us perfect restaurants at short notice-and our reception at the restaurants once we arrived was impeccable. I have stayed in Venice many times and eaten at the restaurants he recommended on other occasions, but with his referral, the restaurants we visited improved remarkably. Many, many thanks to staff at Bauer.

We took the vapporerto taxi to San Marco stop. It took over an hour but the fare of 15E pp was better than 110E for a private taxi then there was the fun parade of luggage to get to the hotel up and down steps of 1 bridge.

My iPhone GPS was quite valuable. If you don't have a GPS make sure you have a map. Nothing is worse than dragging luggage and being lost.

We were very happy at this hotel. We had a suite which was large and had a very nice bathroom.

Some oddness though... Our jacuzzi turned itself on, when we talked to the engineer he said "yeah they do that sometimes"... Odd

. We found a coffee maker in the room but no cups or coffee or tea. We asked and they said we will send up cups but we do not provide coffee or tea.... Odd

The tv was in the living room not in the bedroom. Odd. The hotel happily moved it for us but it was strange.

All in all we would come back. The staff was really friendly and helpful and the location is perfect

The hotel was beautiful, the breakfast buffet offered a wonderful variety and the food was fabulous. The staff were incredible especially the concierge who personally recovered my lost luggage from the pier. Having evening drinks on the patio overlooking the canal and city was spectacular. My only negative feedback is that WiFi should have been included with the stay. This is a five star hotel after all and felt like they were nickel and diming me with the extra WiFi charges.

Room Tip: Some room locations will require climbing stairs so be specific on check in as to your needs.
