Bauer Palazzo, Venice
Very Good8.0
Nice hotel in great location. Bar service on the patio was very disappointing. Prices for food and beverage over the top. Prices outside of hotel half the price. Had the worst glass of red wine at the patio bar. You would figure at 17 euro at a 5 star hotel the wine would be very good. Just the opposite.

Bauer Palazzo is an excellent hotel.
Bauer Palazzo has an excellent location near San Marcos. Site includes a patio, bar and restaurant that overlook the Grand Canal. We watched all kinds of water activity, including giant cruise boats piloting toward their berth. Gondola hire and vast shopping area are adjacent to hotel. Hotel is pricey (as is most of Venice) but understandable given outstanding location and quality of facility and service.

Venice for the weekend!
The Bauer could not have been located better...simply the best to stay where everything that Venice offers is at your doorstep.

A bit pricey but well located.
the hotel itself was in a very good location for exploring the city of Venice on foot. The rooms were a bit cramped, I think due to the age of the hotel. It was difficult to bypass the bed on any side and the bath door had to be closed behind you to allow you to enter. The staff were very helpful and friendly and willing to help in any way they could. If you stay here I would recommend that you bypass the in hotel restaurant. The food was almost uneatable and highly overpriced. There are several wonderful restaurants within walking distance that are very enjoyable. Overall the Bauer is well located, and enjoyable but a bit over priced in my opinion

The Perfect Hotel
The Bauer is amazing, a perfect 5 Star hotel. The location is actually 2 hotels in one building. The half away from the grand canal is the more contemporary hotel and the Palazzo where we stayed faces the grand canal and is the more traditional hotel. Our room was small, think NYC hotels, but gorgeous and very well appointed. Bed was crazy comfortable with the most luxurious linens and towels we had ever encountered. Our window had a stunning view of the city and the hotel is about a 5 minute walk to St Marks but the room (on the small 8th floor) was dead quiet. The breakfast buffet was amazing, full waitstaff for coffee and tea and then the buffet for food. The dining room sits right on the grand canal and you can sit outside but it was mostly to cool for that. The bar that is next to the dining room is open all the time with limited food service and we had an excellent small meal there before a concert when we were rushed for time. One day we came back to the hotel mid-afternoon and had a drink sitting in the sun right on the grand canal watching the gondolas go by, quite a magical Venice experience! We used the concierge service several times, thanks Roberto, and found it very helpful, all the staff were attentive and pleasant. There was a cold bottle of sparkling wine when we arrived, cookies another night, I could go on and on...... but you get the idea!
