Found right in the city centre, the Bauer Palazzo is just a few steps from St. Mark’s Square – Venice’s cultural epicentre. Here, you’ll be treated to the likes of iconic palaces, great domed basilicas and the Campanile – a towering redbrick bell tower. Even closer to home, one wing of the Bauer Palazzo overlooks the Baroque beauty of the Campo San Moisè church while the other is treated to spectacular Grand-Canal views. As such, whether you’re coming by train or plane, it’s ideally poised for a water-taxi transfer – surely the most evocative way of arriving in Venice.  


As aforementioned, the Bauer Palazzo is split into two wings. The first – the one with the canal views – is housed in an original, 18th-century palazzo, combining modern luxury with handcrafted Venetian fittings and furnishings. Its counterpart is equally enticing, pairing Art-Deco interiors with church views. However, across each of the hotel’s 135 rooms, you can expect richly patterned fabrics, marble bathrooms and king-size beds. The toiletries by Santa Maria are a welcome touch. There are also 56 suites to choose from, resplendent in everything from Murano glass chandeliers and spa baths to private balconies and frescoed ceilings.


At the Bauer Palazzo, days begin in style. Breakfast is served up to panoramic city views from what has been Venice’s highest terrace since its 1930 construction. Expect rooftop panoramas over the neighbouring basilicas, canals and terracotta tiling. Then, for lunches and dinners, head to the De Pisis Restaurant. Here, views of the Grand Canal are paired with gourmet dining experiences, with menus adding Mediterranean accents to Venetian classics. It’s all washed down with a pair of bars, detailed below.


The rooftop isn’t just reserved for breakfast. Spend a lazy afternoons soaking in the views with the Jacuzzi before heading downstairs to the appropriately named Canal Bar. Its waterside setting perfectly frames the carved beauty of the Santa Maria della Salute. Alternatively, for something livelier, take your cocktail with live music in the decidedly contemporary B Bar Lounge. Lastly, guests also enjoy access to the facilities at the Bauer Palazzo’s sister property on Giudecca Island. Expect first-class spa treatments and garden dining in the grounds of a convent.
