We have been to Venice many times in the past but it is always a delight to return. This time we stayed at the Bauer Hotel just off San Marco square. The entrance is impressive and a buffet breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Grand Canal in warm sunny weather is very pleasant. However the rooms were dark as we had no view and drinks and food …
... the water taxi and had time for a coffee, ice cream and tiramisu before boarding the 12.35 train. Very comfortable train, very smooth, arrived in Florence at 2.30. Had simple, 5 minute walk instructions from our host Roberta to get to our apartment and she was waiting out the front for us. Our apartment is in a great location, very central and is on the top/5th floor, no lift. Our apartment consists of a ...
Expressos: 8, ice creams: 1, artists: too many to mention, police stations/jail cells: 0, boys on scooters 0. Ok so after a double expresso (I'm clearly a bad influence on Sam - but I had to cure his hangover somehow :)) and taste testing the 10 different Jewish pastries I bought (couldn't choose so went a bit mad), we caught the Vaperetta (learning the proper terms for things now) to the The Peggy Guggenheim. ...
... we said good bye to Venice....
in a snap shot...the gondolas are over rated...there is no romance as you would suspect there would be...it is a cattle call of gondolas back to back..waiting for the next tourist to come off the conveyer belt...to part with their euros...and feel like they are the only ones in Venice undertaking this romantic experience...BUT saying that...I LOVED Venice.....despite the rubbish, the dirt, the stench, the beauty was still there for me......
... cathedral towering over us. We walked up steps, down steps, over bridges and through alleys only wide enough for one person at a time. Eventually we came across Macdonalds where we bought 2 coffees and large fries for 5.50 euros, much cheaper than yesterday's coffees. It gave us a chance to rest our legs as there is absolutely nowhere to sit in Venice, unless you go into a restaurant or cafe. By ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa Venice
The Bauer Hotel's new boutique hotel is lovely, serene, & well-appointed. From your warm reception at check-in, to the lovely breakfast waitstaff, one feels quickly at home. The design by one of the Renaissance's top architects, Andrea Palladio, with views of the lagoon, is understated yet warm. The breakfast, which is included in the price, is delicious. Fresh eggs, cereals, smoked salmon, delicious fruits, homemade baked goods, & fresh tomatoes & mozarella awaits you in a sunny room, which, also, has an outside terrace.
We traveled all day to get to Venice. The hotel couldn't send the free shuttle for us to get to the hotel. We had to take public transportation witih luggage and all. Boat was very crowded.
Although we had a basic double room reserved, we were given a suite at check in. It was absolutly fabulous!!!!! The hotel is very stylish, elegant and historical. The fact that it is across the canal from all the action was actually a strong positive because it was very quiet and we had an outstanding view of Venice. All you really do is take their complmentary boat over to one of their other properties on the main island. The room/suite was a very nice size, bathroom was great and amenities awesome. The staff were very respectful, polite, helpful and patient.
The hotel seemed to have just opened so they are still working on some things but we were extremely satisfied andwould recommend this property highly
Having travelled from Milan & Verona and had good experiences with hotels we were expecting a comedown but it wasn't to be. For our first trip to Venice we really didn't know what to expect.
We stayed here recently and found it to be a lovely hotel on Guidecca Island facing directly across to St Marks Square. It was good to see that the hotel had maintained the feel of the convent in the restoration of the building. The communal areas such as reception, corridors and stairs were all authentic with broken/chipped marble on the floors, rickety concrete stairs etc. I'm glad it was left like this rather than modernised and carpeted as it added to the charm. You felt you were stepping back in time and the only thing that made you realise otherwise were the heavy bright orange firedoors. Still, they're there for a reason.
My husband and I booked a last minute deal to this new addition to the Bauer Hotel Group in Venice, which we understand will offer a spa facility from 2007. Important to note that this hotel is actually on Giudecca Island (and is not to be confused with the Main Bauer Hotel/ Bauer Palazzo fronting the Grand Canal), with a fabulous view of the City from the quayside, and about 10 minutes max to Piazza San Marco via waterbus to San Zaccaria and a short walk (82 - operates very regularly throughout the day) or via the Hotek courtesy boat (11am to 2pm and 5pm to midnight).We had a lovely time - the hotel is very quiet, fabulous rooms, lovely breakfast room and dining room overlooking nice gardens. Downside is there isn't really a nice indoor bar where you could have a quiet drink in the winter months (well you could in the breakfast/dining room, but it's not quite the same!), though there are lots of public areas with huge sofas - but without tables to put a drink on - and therefore not very conducive to a social get together). However we fell in love with it and Venice itself offers a multitude of options in terms of nice bars etc! However the staff were incredibly welcoming - we felt really relaxed and feel the atmosphere was very calming after the crowds of Venice.
Well i generally agree with the previous reviewers comments. I also booked late having been disappointed by the DD724 reservation system shambles and did get an extremely reasonable rate of £125 per night. I had previously been lucky enough to stay at the Bauer and so had some expectation of the standard to expect.
