How to Get There
This was our first trip to Venice and I wanted to find a hotel room with a nice view of the Grand Canal. Based on Trip Advisor reviews we chose Hotel Palazzo Stern because of its location and that the room rates were very reasonable by Venice standards. This turned out to be an excellent choice.
The initial room we had was not quite what we were expecting, but thanks to Andrea, the room we ended up with was SPECTACULAR! The room was huge and very well appointed. The view of the Grand Canal could not have been better and from the wonderful balcony, we had a perfect location to watch the activity up and down the canal.
The hotel also had a very good restaurant with a large patio area right on the canal, something that seemed rare, from what we saw while we were there. The service was excellent and very friendly.
There was a water taxi stop right outside the hotel, which was very convenient, and nearby was Ponte dell'Accademia across the Grand Canal so getting across was easy.
The hotel had an agreement with one of the Murano factories that provided guests with a boat ride from the hotel to the factory. We took advantage of this and had a great time.
Just hours before leaving our home, we had a family emergency that required me to deal with a lot of documents to be reviewed, approved and sent back while I was at this hotel There was a problem getting them to come though on the hotel email for printing, but Andrea suggested I send them to his personal email address so he could print them for me, which did work.
One of things I enjoy most when traveling is getting to know some locals to get a feel for what things are really like in an area. Not just the typical high-level tourist discussions of what to see, but deeper than that, in order to better understand the current culture, politics, good things and frustrations. Through the course of several discussions with Andrea, I felt a sense of that and came away with a much better understanding of what it is like to live in Italy and Venice in particular.
My only “complaint” would be that we enjoyed the room so much that we chose to stay there and had dinner brought up to enjoy on our balcony rather than get out to see more of the city.
I wish we could have stayed longer I can’t wait to return to this property in the future!
This is a seriously beautiful hotel in a wonderful location. But, equally importantly, the charming staff could not be more helpful. My partner and myself were knocked out by their genuine desire to make our stay as memorable as possible. From advice, to booking water taxis and restaurants they always went the extra mile. Breakfast was good too. GO.
Without doubt the perfect hotel for a couple of nights in Venice.
Location ... away from the madding crowd but with the vaporetto stop just a few strides from the entrance.
Plentiful breakfast buffet.
Recommend the Osteria Enoteca Ai Artisti
for supper ... 3 minutes stroll.
I am a Venitian lover, being there at least 15 times. I never stayed in Dorsoduro and appreciated this quiet area, not far from the train's station, Rialto, Accademia and San Marco.
Amazing hotel and dream room overlooking the Grand Canal. Nice and kind people working there.
I hope I will return there.
Have been coming back to the Palazzo Stern for some years & it really is very good & very welcoming.Most of the staff are still there whenever we go & it shows.A problem with the bacon & eggs one morning is sorted the next without any real hassle!It is not cheap as it sits on the 'right' side of the Grand Canal next to a very convenient 'vaporetto' stop(Ca Rezzonico)& is a very good hotel anyway but in a very expensive city they have always been very fair-Well Done!
