How to Get There
My friend and I stayed in a Junior Suite at Hotel Palazzo Stern for 3 nights a few weeks ago, and it exceeded all expectations. The building is beautifully maintained/restored, a proper palazzo in the Venetian style, directly on the Grand Canal. The location could not be better, directly adjacent to the Ca’ Rezzonico vaporetto stop, which is also a stop for the Alilaguna airport boat. It’s on the quieter Dorsoduro side of the canal, which is a great area to explore away from the crowds, but the hotel is also very central so all of Venice is within an easy walk. The Ca’ Rezzonico museum next door is a can’t-miss, with a great collection of Venetian art in a very impressive setting (the views out the windows from upstairs alone are worth the price of admission!).
Every staff member we interacted with was great, and went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. The highlight is really the private patio on the canal, where a great breakfast is available every morning. We enjoyed it even more in the evenings, when it’s open seating for the hotel’s bar. A wonderful place to relax and have a drink or two after a long day exploring the city!
We weren’t able to take advantage of the hotel’s private boat on arrival since it was a Sunday, but they were able to arrange for it to pick us up for a trip to their sister hotel’s restaurant for dinner, which featured the most incredible view of Venice we experienced on our whole trip.
The only note of possible warning I would give is that our suite was not multi-room as you might expect by the name. We knew this going in and it was not a problem at all, the room was large, beautifully decorated and very comfortable, but potentially not what other Americans expect when they hear “suite”.
All in all, our stay at Hotel Palazzo Stern was a truly great experience, and I can’t recommend the hotel highly enough.
Small can be beautiful and Hotel Palazzo Stern is just such a place. This was our third visit to Hotel Palazzo Stern and it delivers everything we could want from a stay in the magical city of Venice. Breakfast on the terrace by the Grand Canal is a unique pleasure no other hotel in Venice can offer. From the outside the hotel is delightful but step inside and you will be entranced by the history and architecture. But the jewel in the crown are the hotel staff who all understand how to look after their guests with that personal touch that is so unusual these days. Thank you Palazzo Stern for another memorable visit.
Hotel Palazzo Stern
I would like to thank you for the attentive, kind, professional, hospitable, and most of all, friendly attention of all at the Palazzo Stern.
Travelling solo to Venice on a long weekend between business meetings was my plan.
The Hotel Palazzo Stern proved itself to be exceptional in providing me with -
1. Accomodation - which was exceptional. I had a ground floor room that wasn't facing the Grand Canal. I was very pleased, it was well appointed and suited my needs absolutely.
2 Location- which was perfect. Located right on the Grand Canal, roughly mid-point between the Railway Station and St Mark's Basilica, in a perfectly quiet spot with easy access to everything. The Vaporetto just outside; a short minute or two walk from various bustling squares, eateries, museums, etc.
3 People - on every level they were helpful and friendly. The Manager welcomed me, I met his father and learned he had flown the world and then returned to his Venetian roots. As charming as he was informative, his passionate knowledge of the Hotel, a previous Palace, and of Venice, was superb, The Staff - I was remembered - wine was waiting for me on my return from trips, and each little detail - breakfast , food preference etc. was attended to personally and thoughtfully.
I would like to thank all the good people of Palazzo Stern for welcoming me and helping me to enjoy a tremendous, memorable stay! See you again soon!
What a perfect place ot stay in Venice! This is a beautiful palazzo right on the Grand Canal, but in an otherwise fairly quiet part of Venice. (A little ways behind the hotel is Campo S. Barnaba, a sweet part of the Dorsoduro neighborhood, with residents, students, and yes, tourists - but not an overwhelming number - checking out the excellent caffes, wine bars and restaurants.) There’s a vaporetto stop right next to the hotel, but it’s in reasonable walking distance of most of Venice. The staff are friendly and helpful, and just taking breakfast on the terrace overlooking the canal is a wonderful treat. My room was on the side, overlooking a small canal, and I already miss the lapping lullaby of the water late at night.
A perfect place if you want to discover Venice but want to avoid the tourist group crowd around San Marco.
The property is a lovely boutique hotel, converted from a palazzo. The staff are very attentive without any exception. Location is great; central to walk, right next to the vaporetto stop and with a lovely view of the Grand Canal.
The reception/concierge provided with good quality guidance to our questions. They were all great, particularly Ludo
