“Best Hotel in Venice”
Reviewed 21 October 2010

When we arrived at the Centurion, the lady at the desk said : This room and the view is the best of Venice". She was right. After a 4 night stay at the Centurion I'm sure we had the best hotel in Venice. If by any chance you can have room 401, you"ll see that it's really amazing. Perfect location in Dorsoduro right between François Pinault and Peggy Guggenheim art museums and very easy to cross to San Marco with a 1 euro gondola ride that crosses the Grand Canal.
Absolutely everyone at the Centurion is nice and helpful. All restaurants recommandations were great. The ladies at the breakfast room were all smiles and tending to all our needs. Be sure to find the time to go to Murano et Burano which are 2 incredible islands. The hotel offers a free ride in a beautiful private boat.
We will be back in Venice and certainly at the Centurion Palace

Stayed at the Centurion for 2 nights. Got a great deal, even in the height of the summer tourist season. The Centurion is a former palace that has been turned into a hotel. The location at the southern part of the grand canal, across from the more touristy part of the city, made it a much more relaxing place to stay. And it's only a 10 minute walk from St. Mark's square because it's right near one of the 3 bridges that cross the Grand Canal. It's also right near a vaporetto stop and next to the wonderful Peggy Guggenheim art museum. The rooms were contemporary with nice bathrooms and ammenities. A breakfast buffet with good quality and variety was included with my room. The only problem I had were these modern, touch on/off reading lights that went on by themselves in the middle of the night. The managment told me they were in the midst of replacing them, and took care of my bar bill to compensate. Overall, a recommended alternative to the traditional Venice hotel.

Although of an "old world" palatial style on the outside (a perfect fit for Venice), the interior has a luxurious, trendy look which we loved. Our room was large with a high timber beamed ceiling, lots of storage, mirrored double closet, extremely comfortable beds, flat screened tv, touch lamps, large bath with golden floors and walls and a high pressure rain shower. The room was very quiet, perfect for sleeping after a long day of sight seeing. No complaints here. Breakfast was one of the best we had in Italy - and we stayed at fantastic hotels in each location. We ate right on the Grand Canal, facing the Gritti Palace, watching the boats coming and going. Service was top notch and we were pleased to have lox, fresh squeezed juice and champagne every morning. Emmanuel runs a great hotel. The courtyard is lovely as well as the bar area. Wish we were still there!

Loved the Centurion, was there with partner for one night before joining a cruise. The hotels is modern, quirky with bags of class. Quite glam in places and rather understated in others - nice balance. Very cool to arrive by taxi on it's private jetty, and sitting right on the river for late night cocktails then for breakfast is a must. Found the room a little small but loved the decor (gold leaf 'everything' in the bathroom, fab!)
It's on the quieter side and is a bit of a walk if youi dont want to wait for the river bus but I would def recommend...

Location perfect: There's no need for anything else than public transport if you're coming from the Marco Polo. Public and cheap express bus goes to Venice and from there you can take the Vaporetto directly to the hotel (Stop: Salute) right next to the hotel.

Rooms: Great. Our room had it's own roof terrace.

Breakfast: Perfect!

Price: Venice is expensive and so is this hotel, but compared to other hotels with the same standard, it's definitely OK

We recently stayed at the Centurion for one night only. The location of the hotel is perfect and the interiors beautiful. The choice at breakfast was excellent. One of us was ill on the day we were due to leave and the hotel very kindly allowed us to stay in the room until departing that evening without charge. Everyone at the reception was particularly helpful and we will definitely stay there again at some time in the future.

What an introduction to Venice! Water taxi delivered us right to the door and the doormen were right there to greet us! They gave us a complimentary upgrade to a beautiful room. The gold bathroom was a hoot, and yes, the shower overflowed into the bathroom, but one quick call downstairs and the problem was fixed! Yes, the bed was on a platform, but you'd have to be incapacitated not to be able to get in and out of the quite wide step. And yes, there is internet, you have to buy 3 euro cards from the front desk. We slept like babies with the sound of the water outside the window and the view was magnificent. The room was elegantly furnished, in gold and red, true Venetian decor. Breakfast was delicious and on good weather days, we ate on the patio over the water. I've dreamt that I was sleeping in that room almost every night since we got back. What a glorious memory!
