My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and the location, opposite San Marco, could not be more perfect. The complimentary shuttle boat crosses the water in no time and you arrive to a peaceful, beautiful hotel where the staff are friendly, willing, and charming. I would like to particularly thank Allesandra and Tatch - who are professional, warm, helpful, and a credit to the Bauer. Nothing was too much trouble and they made our stay very enjoyable and we wish them well.
We stayed in a suite overlooking the garden and the room was immaculate; clean and simply decorated with a very comfortable bed, spacious lounge, and fantastic bathroom with jacuzzi bath, powerful shower, and his n' hers sinks. For a five star hotel, we were disappointed that there were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room and breakfast was the simplest of fruit, cold cuts, and pastries; with eggs, omelettes, bacon, and smoked salmon all 'extras' at considerable expense. Why? Surely at the rates charged, these are simply essentials.
We did not eat in the hotel (again, the rates for dinner were simply excessive) and instead opted to eat at the Cipriani next door - around 250Euro for two for dinner but the view of Venice is the best, the food and wine fantastic, and the weather meant we could eat on their floating dock over the lagoon. Perfecto.
In my opinion, the Bauer is perfect for those wishing to escape the chaos across the water. It was a pleasure to arrive back after the days of bedlam..

Room Tip: We loved the suite overlooking the gardens... so quiet my wife said, with a sense of humor, that she had trouble sleeping (we're used to sleeping with the usual town background sounds). Here it is silence interrupted by the ocassional bird song.

Stayed here for four nights over Easter and was very happy with my choice. The hotel is on Giudecca island which is situated across the lagoon from San Marco and greatly benefits from being an oasis of calm from the mayhem of the tourist areas. The room was a duplex with a sitting room directly looking out over the lagoon to San Marco, a bathroom, of course, and a large dressing room. Bed was firm but comfortable and the staff were fantastic, nothing too much trouble.
There is a boat service ( complimentary) between the hotel and the main island which was perfect for our needs, so one can visit the sites yet retire later to a place of peace and quiet.

Food, as is usual in Italy, was very good and priced as one would expect in a quality hotel. Breakfast was a little disappointing but no real grumbles.

The one downside I had was the price of the spa facilities which I thought were very expensive even for Venice. I would have thought that residents would have had some "perk" in that department. However, the hotel did surprise me with a birthday cake although I have no idea how they knew it was my birthday! My wife swears she did not tell them.
Giudecca itself is less touristy but gives a taste of the real Venice. Near the hotel we found a really good restaurant serving local dishes.
I would use this hotel again

This hotel is "interesting" being a former "sanctuary for unmarried women of virtue". I found it dark and not inviting. The staff is fabulous and can't do enough for you. The rooms are large and are comfortable enough but there is a step up to the bathroom. In the middle of the night I didn't remember that step and fell and injured myself pretty badly. I think rather than trying to maintain the convent atmosphere, they should remodel it top to bottom and get rid of that step at the same time. It's in an excellent location on the Grand Canal opposite St Marks Sq. and accessible by a complimentary shuttle.

The view from Guidecca is wonderful - views over the water to St Mark's Square. The Palladio has a courtesy launch to the Bauer Palazzo and two minutes from the Palladio you will find the the Zitelle vaporetti stop. The atmosphere on Guidecca is very calm compared the main island. We had a lovely garden suite which very comfortable and nicely decorated. The view of the garden was an unexpected bonus - masses of spring flowers! We had lunch in the hotel once - which good value with sensibly priced wines. Breakfast was OK. The service in the hotel was exceptional - Alessandra needs to be singled out for charm and efficiency - but everyone seemed to enjoy their job and do it well. Little touches such as the galss of prosecco on arrivel, the vases of fresh flowers and orchids in the suite and the bottle of wine on ice when we return to our rooms all contributed to this excellent hotel experience. I would recommend the Bauer Palladio most strongly (and I seldom do this).

Room Tip: Garden rooms are sunny and quiet - with a lovely view. They are a bit cheaper.

My wife and I have just returned from our fourth stay at this hotel. We were greeted as old friends and upgraded to a lagoon view room, which had fresh flowers and a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us. On each visit we have had at least one of our children along. The staff all looked after us very well, the rooms were great and the food in the restaurant was good enough to tempt us back evening after evening. Having stayed in many hotels around the world, this has become a real favourite. It's location on the Guidecca should not put anyone off; it's easy and fun to travel the 5 minutes journey across the lagoon to near St Mark's Square, which also happens to be the view from the hotel!
