Although it was my first trip to Venice I did not want to stay in one of the busier areas near St. Mark's or Rialto. Palazzo Stern was perfect. It is in a wonderful location right at a vaporetto stop, near the Guggenheim and Academia, and near great restaurants, a Grom, and artist shops and studios. It is an easy walk everywhere but having the boat stop just steps away is wonderful at night after a long day or in dicey weather. The outside patio is heavenly for breakfast, a cocktail or just to sit and watch the boats on the Grand Canal. The staff is warm and welcoming and very knowledgeable and helpful. This is not a typical grand hotel...our room was on the smaller side but comfy and clean with windows that opened and enormous charm...but has a Venetian quirkiness that made our stay very special. The full breakfast is a wonderful perk...I slept late one morning and the staff made a tray for me and accompanied my husband to our room so I would not miss breakfast. And, yes, Denis' Aperol spritzer is the very best. I love Palazzo Stern and will definitely return on my next trip to Venice.
