We stayed at the Hotel Stern for 3 nights in mid April 2014. We are a family of 4, with 2 young children. The hotel is beautiful. With a wonderful front patio on the Grand Canal. The only glaring exception to it's beauty is the awful ceiling mural of African animals in the alcove outside room 406. In such a beautiful place this painting really is a travesty, or a joke. The Juniour Suite is a large room, with enough space for the 2 small children's beds along with our Queen sized bed. The bathroom was pretty, but the jacuzzi didn't work, and the magnifying mirror had been broken off of the metal hinge, and not replaced when were there.
Location is excellent, practically at the vaparetto stop. And an easy walk to Piazza San Marco. In addition the location is just enough out of the extreme fray of the centre of Venice to feel somewhat quiet, and it is near some very good basic restaurants, interesting shops and a lovely campo, where our girls were happy to play with other tourist kids, while we watched them and the godolas floating by as we sipped our spritz's at the outdoor cafe.More
