“Fantastic stay, but pricey”
Reviewed 21 July 2012

This is a fantastic establishment in Venice, right in the middle of town, facing the grand canal and a 2 min walk to the Piazza San Marco.
Lucky this was on business and paid for my the company as a single room night costs over Eur400!!

You get what you expect- nice rooms, good service, great location. All important for a short stay in Venice.

The room is really nice as is breakfast. The bathroom is really nice too and free of odor. It's what I expected for the price.

A beautiful hotel where you are made a to feel as though they really want you there. On arrival the room didn't have the view we had hoped for so we asked for a different one we was made available very quickly with a minimum of fuss and were made to feel that it was their fault rather than ours - rare to say the least -. Breakfast was a'la carte with many delicious choices.
The restaurant was rather expensive but well worth it. We did eat out a many various restaurants, as there are some really great ones right on the canals.

Room Tip: Make sure you request a room with a view of the canal.

We picked up this hotel on a super discount site so we knew going in that we'd get the worst rooms which weren't that bad. They had tall ceilings, a new bathroom and AC that worked well. The only issue was a goofy shower that got water all over the floor. This hotel was marketed as 5* but I'd really only give it 4*. My only complaint was that the Internet is a bit spotty.

The breakfast on the deck outside overlooking the Grand Canal is worth the price alone and the location is excellent just a minute walk to Plaza San Marco. I'm happy with the hotel for what we paid but would I pay full freight for this hotel...I don't think so.

If you want location then The Bauer is the hotel for you. It is located right in the center of the action with the Grand Cannal on one side and the high end shopping on the other. At the time I didn't think the wifi (not included) wasn't very good but as it turns out compared to other hotels we stayed at all over Europe afterwards it wasn't so bad after all. The beds are comfortable but the pillows are so thin I wonder why they bothered. The toiletries could be improved upon as well. The bathrooms counter area was so small there was no room for essentials. The shower put water water all over the bathroom without enough towels to soak it up afterwards. Our bathroom window did not have a privacy shade therefore one needed to be in there without turning on the lights as the rooms across the way could see right in! The closet was large.

The breakfast buffet was plentiful and located on a terrace on the grand Cannal. Beautiful.

Excellent location in Venice, with amazing vista overlooking San Georgio . Check in prompt and efficient, Service was attentive without being intrusive, nothing was too much trouble. Staff had excellent knowledge of places to visit , eat out , or to explore on our own . Standard of food was again excellent and eating on the terrace overlooking the Grand canal provided one of life's moments
A truly memorable stay.

This is a true 5-star hotel and everything you would expect from one is in place. The room we stayed in was not a big one, but the quallity was excellent and it had had everything we needed, including a small balcony.
The best thing in the hotel is it's location. The best evidence of this is the first morning when you enter the breakfast restaurant for a champagne breakfast: the view is stunning. At least it took my breath away. Highly recommend this hotel.
