Reviewed 5 May 2014

Just arrived back. Saw this hotel last year from the Gritti Palace dining room, over the Grand Canal. Its very cool and modern. Lovely courtyard that is a great sun trap. Lovely bas and dining right on the Grand Canal. Down towards the San Marco end, virtually next to the Salute stop.
Booked a Junior Suite, upgraded to the Presidential suite (room 404) with 20 foot ceilings and a massive panoramic window and balcony. Spent all day watching the canal.
Some reviews picked out some minor wear and tear. Its true, but take in the whole atmosphere and feeling. If you have time to photo a stain in the bathroom then romance is not for you. Nitpickers will miss the whole point of Venice. Its all about sitting back and feeling the place. Not rushing around the sites. Take it slow, small back street cafes in out of the way places. We only went to St Marks square once and near the Rialto once. We also had various artists play outside the courtyard on the main route from the Guggenheim to Salute. One guy played the wine glasses very well, also brilliant Cellist and guitarist.

Room Tip: If staying here it must be a canal view room, all are expensive. If its a special stay then pay it a...

We have just got back from our stay in Venice at Centurion Palace. We couldn't fault it in any way!
Our room (no.302) was lovely, spacious and had a great view and a lady played the cello wonderfully in the alley outside our window in the afternoons. The service was perfect, everyone at the hotel were so helpful and friendly. They really made us feel welcome. We received a free bottle of Prosecco from management because it was my fiancé's birthday on Saturday and all of the staff were wishing him happy birthday throughout the day.
Chiandra (I think the lady's name is) gave us some very good restaurant recommendations and gave me a present to protect my heels from the rain on Friday. They really go the extra mile!
When we arrived at 9.30 in the morning they had a room ready for us before we could finish a coffee in the hotel bar.
The hotel itself is beautiful, but if you're after more of a traditional hotel then it's probably not for you. We love modern and contemporary hotels which is why we chose the Centurion. It really is luxurious.
The hotel runs a free shuttle in the evening to San Marco there and back which we found very helpful and just next door there is a gondola that takes you to the other side of the Grand Canal for 2€.
There isn't anything negative for us to add and we hope to visit again soon!
Thank you to all of the team for having us!

We just checked into the Centurion Palace in Venice. We were so looking forward to our stay here because the website sold it as five star luxury hotel with amazing views from every room, and with a price tag of $720 a night that's certainly what we were expecting. But when they brought us to the room I couldn't quite believe my eyes. It was the size of a postage stamp - literally large enough for a bed with enough room on each size for one person to walk. And I'm from NYC…I get small spaces but this is ridiculous. And then the nice woman who showed us to the room tried to salvage the moment by revealing a small walled in terrace with a view of the back of the next building. As an added treat the terrace has a window that belongs to the room next door…so it's not only devoid of a view but also of privacy.

This is our third stop in Italy after Rome, Florence and Bologna and the hotels we selected in those cities were all great. The room at the Centurion Palace is by far the smallest even though it's more than double the price. When we tried to get online to review what we had actually booked we noticed a note informing us that internet access required us to buy a card at the front desk…yes…after paying over $1400 for two nights for a room that feels like a storage closet…they didn't even throw in the internet. Which incidentally was included in the three other Italian hotels we stayed in. It turns out we reserved a Superior Room and it seems what we got was the smallest version of that the hotel has to offer - nothing like what the website led us to believe we were getting...So not a great start to our visit here in Venice. But hoping the city can make up for this hotel lacks.

Definitely WON'T be recommending the Centurion Palace to anyone back home in NYC...

Room Tip: Insist on not being in the tiny room in the back with the terrace...

We just checked into the Centurion Palace in Venice and boy were we in for a surprise. We booked a Superior Room for $720 dollars per night and when we checked in and were shown to our room what a SURPRISE we had, the room was the smallest we have ever stayed in for a so-called ***** , 5 Stars hotel and had a view of NOTHING.

There was however a small terrace which we will not use because no one comes to Venice to sit in an enclosed terrace with NO view.

From their own website http://www.sinahotels.com/eng/centurion_palace_hotel/luxury_venice_accommodations.htm you can see that they

This was our second stay at the Centurion Palace. We were so impressed with this beautiful hotel on our last visit that we did not consider staying anywhere else and we were even more impressed second time round. The staff are warm, kind, welcoming and helpful. The room we had was magical. The place is spotless. Breakfast was delicious with so much to choose from. Sitting in the courtyard or on the terrace gives a sense of belonging and watching the world go by on the canal as you sip Prosecco is an experience not to be missed. The location is ideal, close enough to walk to Saint Mark's Square but far enough away to get some peace and quiet. We hope to return to Venice and we will definitely book into the Centurion Palace again. A little bit of heaven in Venice.

Room Tip: Although the idea of a canal view is good the reality of a courtyard view room is better. Very quiet...

Beautiful hotel in an excellent location. Old building with modern decor, has a lovely courtyard at the back and a small terrace overlooking the Grand Canal. We stayed for four nights and received an upgrade when we checked in. Staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. Buffet breakfast is great especially sitting looking out onto the canal. This was out first trip to Venice and delighted we chose this hotel. Would definitely stay again.

A beautiful hotel on the bank of the Grand Canal not far from the "Santa Maria della Salute" Basilica on the island of Dorsoduro. Adorned with Murano glass sculptures and stunning fixtures, this is a fabulous place to experience Venice from. Very friendly staff, exquisite food, wonderful rooms and a private jetty to sit and enjoy views of the Grand Canal from. Dorsoduro is a lovely, quiet island and has much to tempt the traveller.
