I have stayed with Bauer Il Palazzo last year during Biennale. This year I returned for a short weekend break and redeemed my free night with Leading Hotels of the World. Check-in was smooth, very warm welcome by receptionist and residence manager, addressed by name and everything was taken care of very professionally.
Location just can't be beat: Directly facing Canal Grande, opposite of Punta della Dogana, St. Mark's Square is just 3 minutes by foot. We arrived very early by private boat and the room wasn't ready yet, so we went to have breakfast at Settimo Cielo on the rooftop which is one of the highlights - panorama-wise and service-wise. Lucia and the whole breakfast team are just amazing.
Since we were not paying anything for our stay, I wasn't expecting anything in terms of a nice view or being upgraded etc. When we returned from breakfast, to my surprise we were offered a beautiful deluxe room with a terrace directly facing the Canal Grande, with a nice marble bathroom, walk in closet, complimentary bottle of water, signature handkerchief of the hotel as a souvenir and a view to die for overlooking the Canal Grande and the whole lagoon. We really felt VIP!
Again, I would like to point out that we received this VIP treatment although we were on a free night. I believe that there are not many hotels in the world that would give you such a treatment, if you're not actually paying for your stay... This illustrates how professional the Bauer Palazzo staff works... I will definitely return for my next stay in Venice. Thank you again for the nice weekend!
