A dream location! Very accessible to the city. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Our room was spotless and in keeping with the Venetian style. Lots of options for breakfast and lots of delightful restaurants for dinner nearby too.
My daughter and I ended our Italy vacation spending our final two nights at Palazzo Stern. We arrived in the afternoon and were greeted with warmth and courtesy. The view from our room (304) was spectacular with our windows facing the grand canal. We had reserved a junior suite and were thrilled with the accommodations. Everywhere we looked we found a new wonder to behold - the chandeliers, the antique furniture, the venetian/murano glassworks!
Our first night we had an after tour of St Mark's Basilica and Doge's Palace which were a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The tour ended around 11 PM and we started our walk back to the hotel. Alas, google maps had us going in circles and we finally had to call the hotel to request assistance. The gentleman that answered the phone assured us that we weren't far away and tried to guide us back but we were good and lost. He took our telephone number and told us not to worry, he would call us right back. After several minutes with no telephone call, we again attempted to find our way back. A man was approaching us with his cell phone to his ear when my phone rang. I picked up and said "Hello?" while the man walking past us says into his phone "Hello, this is Mateo from Palazzo Stern." Mateo! Our knight in shining armor had rescued us! We were still a good 10 minute walk from the hotel so how he found us on those twisty turny Venice walkways we still have no idea but are eternally grateful that he did. Mateo's concern for our well being and his exemplary service is unparalleled in my traveling experience.
We enjoyed breakfast at the hotel the next morning. When we returned to our room that afternoon, there was a chilled bottle of Preseco awaiting us with a note wishing me a happy birthday. How cool is that! When we had arrived the night before I had asked the hotel to make us a reservation for a casual dinner close to the hotel that had both good food and atmosphere. Again, they nailed it - Do Farai, we learned from Mateo, is a restaurant frequented by Venice locals. The food was excellent and the dessert outstanding.
Venice is a magical place and the staff of Palazzo Stern made it even more so. There wasn't anything about our experience that was less than 5 stars. I would give Mateo ten if I could :)
