We have just returned from our second break in the city of venice, and have to say that after experiencing three different hotels in that time, the Palazzo Stern comes with an incredibly high recommendation from us. We have always preferred the San Polo / Dorsoduro area, as they are far more peaceful and less full of tourists, allowing you to see a more real Venice, rather than the packed San Marco area with sometimes astonishing prices and service you get in the tourist capture zones!
The Stern was a stunning building in an enviable location, with easy access to the nicest areas of the city, and a rare and fabulous canal side terrace for breakfast and evening drink. The staff were all impeccable in their presentation, with a professional, but unobtrusive manor. Dennis from Venice was very interesting to chat to over a late evening night cap, and the Superior Grande Canal room we stayed in was simply superb, with an incredible view to just watch the world float by. We arrived by water taxi, but after choosing this method from the airport both visits to venice, and the fact you can arrive virtually outside the hotel door by Vaporetto, I doubt we will choose this expensive method again.
All in all a fabulous stay again in this wonderful city, and upon our return in the future we will be looking to book Palazzo Stern as our first choice, we can't recommend this wonderful hotel enough. Don't hesitate when you are looking for Venice hotels, if you can get a room at Palazzo Stern, just book it, you won't be disappointed.
