How to Get There
This hotel was clearly the home of an eccentric aesthete and has an interior with a strong eastern influence (suitable for Venice). The room had the traditional Venetian decor, not a cheap imitation like other hotels. We even had a Murano glass chandelier hanging from the high ceiling. The staff provided faultless service and friendly stay enhancing interactions. Make sure you go up to look at the second floor as it has some beautiful byzantine style decoration. The hotel offers a meal at their sister hotel in San Marco. This is in their rooftop restaurant with a complimentary transfer by their own 1950s speedboat. If you want a touch of hollywood style glamour for your holiday I can't recommend it enough. The restaurant is also exceptional, intimate with a great view of the lagoon. 4* can vary a lot in Italy, but this hotel is truly high end. As a note for British travellers: they do provide suitable teabags and hot water at breakfast (Twinings, not Lipton!). I forgot to leave a tip for the housekeeping staff, but they did a first class job, including turn down service, sorry!
Our stay at Palazzo Stern was perfect. the concierge were always very helpful and the staff friendly. The decoration is that of a special art house (Moorish/Venice). The position on the Grand Canal is exceptional. We will return.
This is the most beautiful hotel - a jewel on the Grand Canal where there are many jewels. We had visited before and had drinks on the gorgeous terrace but we had never stayed.
Our bedroom was luxurious with stunning furnishings and a view over a garden and a little canal. All this is Venice at its best but what made our visit were the charming helpful staff who treat you as individuals and valued guests . On top of all this the breakfast was delicious eaten on the terrace as we watched the boats on the Grand Canal. We were so sad to go and we will be back soon.
