We have stayed here twice, and elected to have the same grand canal facing room as our first stay because it was so perfect. This hotel is quite modern inside and very clean, the staff are very relaxed and happy to serve. We opted for a small but perfectly located canal facing room because it's like a dream waking up, opening up the windows and looking directly out onto the grand canal with singing and music in the distance!
The centurion is located quite well, with a traghetto just around the corner or the water bus also close by. You can catch the bus across onto Piazza St Marco in just a couple minutes. The hotel is also very close to lots of local shopping "off the regular tourist path" that are very highly recommended.
The restaurant is very nice, and breakfast excellent with the service always great. I recommend you relax on the front landing in the evening with a nice coffee or hot chocolate! Just perfect.
Both of our stays to this hotel have been excellent, and so it is certainly consistently of very high standard. As for points for improvement? I can't suggest many things except perhaps it would be nice to have other options such as poached eggs for breakfast (unless I missed it on the menu). One other thing may be that staff could communicate on the name of guests that are staying, because we went to the front landing one evening for coffee again and two staff asked our name/rm number on three occasions which made us feel a little odd - but that's just a very minor point, everything was really quite perfect.
The centurion may not be a famous as the Gritti Palace or the Danieli - but it's every bit as good and every bit as luxurious.
