Set amid the iconic palaces and basilicas of Venice’s cultural epicentre, and just a few steps from St. Mark’s Square, the Bauer Palazzo is ideally placed for exploring the many delights of Italy’s floating city. Indeed, with one wing of the hotel overlooking the church of Campo San Moisé and the other facing the Grand Canal itself, you’d be hard pressed to imagine a finer setting. And, whether you’re arriving by plane or train, it’s ideally situated for a water-taxi transfer, the perfect way to arrive in La Serenissima.

In more detail

The hotel itself is housed in an 18th-century palazzo – hence the name – and offers a wonderfully evocative blend of traditional Venetian and art-deco design; think handcrafted furnishings, richly patterned fabrics, Murano chandeliers and frescoed ceilings. In the rooms, king-size beds and marble bathrooms provide the comforts, while suites add in the likes of indulgent spa baths and private balconies.

The restaurants here are equally impressive, with De Pisis serving Venetian classics to sweeping views of the Grand Canal. Breakfast, meanwhile, is enjoyed on what is Venice’s highest roof terrace – an accolade held since its 1930 construction. It’s a delightful spot from which to soak up the views of the surrounding rooftops and the canal maze below, and can also be enjoyed in the afternoon with a soak in its Jacuzzi; it’s the perfect preamble to drinks in the Canal Bar or a cocktail or two in the lively B Bar Lounge.

Lastly, guests also have complimentary access to Bauer’s sister hotel, the Palladio Hotel, idyllically set on Giudecca Island. Just a short water-taxi transfer away, guests can enjoy garden dining and the delights of its first-class spa.
