“Birthday drinks on the terrace overlooking Grand Canal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

My sister and brother-in-law were staying here in late June and arranged with the hotel management to host my birthday pre-dinner drinks and food. The position of the hotel and hospitality of the staff was superb. I felt honoured! The ride afterwards in the 1952 hotel boat was a dream. The evening was magical thanks to Hotel Palazzo Stern.

Room Tip: Overlooking the canal with a balcony is beautiful.

Excellent hotel, very comfortable, clean, courteous and attentive staff. Great breakfast.
Ideal position for the vaporetto. We would definitely stay here again. Very good value.
Although we were there in December the veranda overlooking the canal must be fantastic in the summer.

Room Tip: First or second floor suites facing the grand canal are best

Buongiorno!

Thank you for your very kind review! You are right, you are not in Venice to watch TV, bu you are also right when you say that it's a good way to relax at the end of the day. We will try to improve our offer of tv channels, thanks for the suggestion!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Turned up at the hotel on 2nd December and we were welcomed with a refreshing drink and showed points of interest in Venice by the friendly concierge. Then we were showen to our room and it was wonderful with a hanging chandelier over the bed and decorated to a very high standard it was spotlessly clean we loved it. The surrounding area was peaceful and quite and the restaurants in this area were of a very high standard and good value for money as it is not in the heart of the tourist centre but getting to San Marco is only a 10 - 15 mins walk and roughly the same for the Rialto bridge. All in all this a beautiful hotel with a lot of love put in to the decorating of it, the staff are friendly, kind, helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay even better top marks to them all and the surrounding area is peaceful and qiute just what you need after a day of sight seeing 10 out of 10. 100 % will recommend. Thank You for a Lovely holiday.

Highly recommended. The first thing you must understand about Venice is that the hotel location will determine how much you enjoy your visit. This hotel is ideal in every way.

Initially we stayed at the Hilton Molino Stucky, which was a disaster. When we switched to the Hotel Palazzo Stern, we had very low expectations. What a wonderful surprise. The Palazzo Stern is beautiful, luxurious, convenient, comfortable and the building is a work of art.

The location is superb. It is located on the Grand Canal in an enviable spot, overlooking the Accademia bridge, but far from the tourist crowds. It's right next to the Ca Rezzonico vaporetto stop, and it has its own dock for water taxis. That is very convenient. By foot, you will find the Accademia bridge is a short distance from the hotel, and St Mark's Square is an easy stroll from there.

The Hotel Palazzo Stern is situated in a fascinating neighborhood. It is not the touristic part of Venice. Instead, it is filled with art and craft shops from local merchants. We found beautiful fashion and design and jewelry shops in the small streets near the hotel. There are also a dozen very good restaurants within a five or ten minute walk from the hotel: we ate most of our meals in this neighborhood because we liked it so much. There are also many small bars in the next neighborhood (follow the signs towards Ferrovia / Piazza Roma and you will be there in five minutes).

Inside, the hotel is a jewel box. The building has a fascinating history. In the late 1800s, the art-collecting Stern Family from Paris purchased what was then a small ceramic studio located on the Grand Canal. Previously there had been a legendary palace on this site, but that family went bankrupt and the house was stripped for building materials. As a result, the Sterns were able to build a showcase for their vast collection of art work and sculptures. Imagine: a 19th-century recreation of a classic Venetian palace, decorated with medieval sculptures from all over Italy and Europe. The entire building is like an art history tour with striking details in every corner.

The rooms are quiet and well appointed with luxurious fabrics and nice amenities. We stayed in a suite overlooking the Grand Canal. I can say that this is one of the finest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in (after 30 years of world travel). The view from the window was magnificent. All day long we watched with joy as the boats traveled up and down the Grand Canal past our room. The bathrooms are clean, built with excellent materials and very comfortable appointments.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. I strongly urge you to consider staying here and making this your home in Venice.

Room Tip: If you care for a view of the Grand Canal, you must book a suite. If you are on a budget, I would r...

We, a family of four, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Palazzo Stern in Nov 2012. We stayed in the junior suite with two comfortable adult sized beds for my 11 and 14 year old boys. The hotel located in the artistic quarter of Venice (Dorsoduro) was an easy stroll to the major attractions in Venice yet away from the tourist crowds. In my opinion, Dorsoduro is the most charming area in a city that is already oozing with charm. Being next to the vaporetto stop along the Grand Canal made things extra convenient on days where we were lazy to walk or had heavy bags to carry (St Mark's is a couple of stops away - close but not too close!!). The hotel is a luxurious and intimate with beautiful fittings, moldings and carvings. It is clear that a lot of thought went into the preservation of this building without sacrificing creature comforts of demanding guests. Pictures of the hotel did not do justice to how pretty this hotel is. Service at the hotel matched the top quality of the hotel. Everyone at the hotel was eager to serve and recommendations to attractions and restaurants were spot on. The terrace by the canal was perfect after a day of exploration- a end of the day highlight for me. Highly recommended!
