Bauer il Palazzo in Venice, Italy

The crown jewel in Bauer's collection of properties, Bauer il Palazzo is a grand neo-Gothic manor house that offers one of the most sumptuous ways to experience Venice. Under the direction of proprietress Francesca Bortolotto Possati, each of the rooms and suites is distinctive with period furniture, Murano glass chandeliers and walls of Bevilacqua and Rubelli fabric. A stroll down the hallways could almost supersede a visit to the Gallerie dell'Accadamia.

Sip an espresso with a magical view of the canal and lagoon at appropriately named Settimo Cielo, which means Seventh Heaven. Wander over to the piazza San Marco and behold the grandeur of St. Mark's Basilica. Glimpse Tiepolo's frescos at Pietą and Ca' Rezzonico. Dine on lobster ravioli with chanterelles and spicy bisque on the terrace, watching boats go by.

The service is excellent, as well as the ambiance and the setting of the hotel right in the heart of Venice. We stayed in a city-view room with view over a canal and a good city overview. There were other rooms we didn't see with inside courtyard view which would not find satisfactory for the quite high price the hotel is asking for stays. Nevertheless, we came back later that year in the Bauer Palladio with its gardens that just opened and we had a wonderful time. This year we will return to the Palazzo. Great recommendation for a romantic weekend, although the price is a bit steep.

Flew out from Gatwick using Business lounge and booked business seats with BA ( NO EXTRA LEG ROOM ) with just a seat left vacant really. in the middle. We took the 16.25 flight from LGW which took around 1hr 45 flying time. We had already booked a private water taxi at 209 Euro's return. From the terminal its around a 10 minute walk ( which used to be outside but now through a covered walkway at the airport) to the water taxi's ( all sign posted) and straight away jump straight into our own ride. It was covered when you get in and from floor to ceiling just enough room for you to sit without bashing head ( open top in the warmer weather though) It was dark outside and was around 20 min's journey, the last few minute's it goes down the back canals to arrive at your destination. ARRIVAL We arrived and checked in with no hassle, the hotel looked really nice on first view too. We swiped the credit card and showed the passports etc. THE ROOM Ours was on the 4th floor ( lifts take a max of 4 in and very snug fit ) and we stayed in 464. The room we booked was a junior room and we had requested a double bed but was greeted with two singles ( it was written on our expedia booking but whether that had been sent on to the hotel? who knows) The view wasnt that spectacular as we were about 10 ft away from the rooms opposite but we are only using the room for sleeping in, so we thought this was ok. There was water in the room for the first day which was complimetary, but no tea or coffee machines etc. No water after the first day either. Do not expect iron or ironing board either as they only do a linen service. The chamber maid came and made the beds to make them as if they were one larger bed, but you could still feel the gap dwon the middle ( not so nice when snuggling in ;O) The bathroom ws ok with plenty of hot water and a nice bath. We had no chandeliers in our room and didnt seem that Venetian but as I have said , we were in this room for sleep. There is a room where you can store your clothes etc and hide the suitcases. There is also a safe too! The housekeeping staff were very good and always made up the room. On my Birthday I recieved a bottle of Prosecco and some complimentary water which was a lovely surprise and then Biscuits the next day too, thank you to the management. THE HOTEL It is a lovely hotel and we hardly used it other than for Breakfast ( for us was only downstairs but a lovely river view) but if you were staying in the suites you got to use the upstairs terrace and have breakfast ( little unfair segrigating us really ) but we sneaked up anyway just to take soe pics only when the breakfast area was open. You were not allowed out at any other time (think it was weather related) BARS There are two bars, expensive if you use them though, tea and coffeee was 18 euros for both but did get biscuits too. BREAKFAST Two areas, one is downstairs and has a lovely view with an outside terrace facing the main river. The other is on the roof area but only able to use if you were paying for the suites as apposed to the rooms. Nice area though with romantic views of the river again ( but actually lovely downstairs too) THE LOCATION Prada & all the big names are literally opposite you and only a short walk to the right to St Mark's square. There is also a Gondola station next to the hotel too! The Water taxi also comes straight up to the side entrance of the building which is good THE TOURS BE WARNED - Gondola's do not want you to just pay 80 Euro's, they want the 150 to 170 Euro's off you which is shocking for a tourist. they basically didnt want to sell thie 80 Euro package and the group of 6 where we were couldnt be bothered with us, eventually one said yes, then tried again to sell for the maximum which really started to spoil our trip. They were not friendly or engaging to us but spent all the time chatting to every gondala that passed all asking if he had got the extra money out of us ( we didnt let on we could speak Italian ) The hotel will provide you with a private water taxi for an hour at 120 euro's and wished we had did this instead of the 30 mins 80 euro plus hassle. CASINO We never did any toursit trips apart from the Casino, WHICH GAVE US 20 EURO FREE CREDIT for the slots after we had shown our passports. Ok, there was two bottles of Prosecco down there and also soft drin, all free so we drank as much as we xould lol. The slots were ok and didnt seem that bad a place really. Its about 20 minutes walk from hotel. Main boat trips to hop on and off are around 20 euros for 24 hrs or 7 euros for 70 mins. THE CARNIVAL This is realy what we wanted to see, everyone dressed up , we were not disappointed and would recommend anyone to go during this time although the square was packed. The hotel was hosting a BOND night and we didnt attend which was a shame and also Valentines night meal. THE BARS OUTSIDE Around the square there are some bars, there is one just past Bar Americano which was lovely, small and inviting and is just on the far edge of the square. Prices were reasonable too. Go to Hotel Danielle where the Tourist was filmed...amazing inside. THE HOTEL IS.... Lovely and offers some excellant views and really enjoyed our stay. Just the room stuff that we mentioned earlier let us down really. Would we stay here again ? not sure unless the extra's were there. I enjoy having nice clothes to wear and most places we visit have ironing boards in the room now. TO THE MANAGEMENT. The staff were all really friendly and did their jobs really well. TO THE SELLERS OF THE ROSES OUTSIDE ( These people are not part of the hotel ) are pushy, rude and so close to fighting with us because of the way they shove a rose on you even when you say NO, so be aware. Apart from this, see the pics and enjoy the review ;O) Paul & Gedre xxx

My wife and I have been to Venice many times over the past 10 years. We stayed at Bauer over 80% of the times we were in Venice. Must say it is not just one of the best in Venice but one of the best we have ever stayed at. Not the cheapest but definitely worth it.

When booking, be aware that the accommodation in Bauer Casanove is in the four star annexe to the main five star hotel which is a separate building. This means you have to walk outside, between buildings, to breakfast in the main hotel. We already knew this on booking, having read other reviews. Other than that, the service, the room, housekeeping, breakfast, bar, facilities etc are of five star standards. Outstanding accommodation and location. Staff were very helpful and looked after us well. Would love to return.

This review is pretty late... But this place deserves one! As a jazz enthusiast I am always searching for it in any city/country I visit. I am from Seattle, WA and stopped in Venice on my adventure through Northern Italy. As I was walking through the streets and water ways of Venice, there were posters for museums, and tours. The one that caught my eye was a poster that proclaimed, "JAZZ at THE BAUER HOTEL." On September 16th, 2016 there were 2 concerts by ABA who was a jazz, soul, rhythm and blues singer. The poster stated she had been on 2013's Xfactor show. My boyfriend and I bought tickets and were sat in a very cute, intimate room. ABA and her band had great chemistry. Can I just say that the woman's voice was so sexy, sultry, and full of gusto and soul. I tried to look her up to see if I could buy a cd of her music online. I can not seem to find a fan page or a way to acquire some of her music. So if anyone could direct me to any of her content I would gladly buy her music? To take in the show (which was sold out), you had to hit a minimum at the bar. The drinks are extremely expensive but were craft cocktails that were delicious and very strong. Over all, this was one of my favorite nights in Venice. Go catch a show here and get super tipsy. It's fun and a cute spot.
