We stayed four nights at the Centurion Palace last week and although I had booked a superior room we were allocated a tiny room with a view of a wall! I take a lot of time sourcing hotels as it is an important part of my holiday, so I asked if we could possibly have a room with a view of the Grand Canal and were eventually given a room on the 6th floor with a canal view, albeit out of two small windows. The room was much larger and quite quaint with sloping roof and beams. (We live in a Cotswold cottage, so we're quite used to beams). The pillows were much too soft for my liking, no support at all. Breakfast was okay, although the scrambled eggs were very sloppy, not very hot and pretty tasteless, there was however, plenty of cold selection. We had tea on the terrace (6 euro a pot!), but unfortunately they have large plant pots obscuring the view. We didn't use their water taxi to St Mark's square as we try and avoid the touristy areas and prefer (after our 3rd visit to Venice) to go off the beaten track and mingle with the locals further afield. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant either for the same reason.
