I stayed at what was then called the Bauer Grunewald with my parents many years ago and decided to stay again to see how much it had changed. Found a good deal with Expedia and can whole-heartedly recommend the hotel under its new ownership and management. Had one of the older rooms but well-maintained and elegant in a classic '50s Venetian style. The public rooms with Venetian glass and wood are unchanged and have an enduring glamour. Restaurant terrace on the ground floor is a magical place for breakfast with possibly the best view in Venice (so much better than the Danieli) giving a real sense of the morning bustle on the Grand Canal. Very busy and sometimes chaotic trying to get a table, but you can also use the top-floor terrace restaurant which as amazing views (the highest public terrace in the city). Birds flitting around the pergola whilst you look out towards San Giorgio M.
Would recommend to anyone wanting to find a little quiet in a hectic city.
