Palazzo Stern Hotel Non Refundable Hotel
4 4 Star:
The Palazzo Stern Hotel is but a few steps from Saint Mark's Square and from Accademia, surrounded by the artistic beauties and by the peacefulness and quitness of an everyday Venice. A Historical Palace, once home of a known art collector, enhanced by art work of all ages and rich with ancient historical memories. This is a unique and unforgettable experience that will take you back in time. The breath-taking view from the Terrace on the Grand Canal and the peacefulness of the Flat Roof (provided with Jacuzzi) are full of incredible romance and beauty.
All 24 rooms of the Palazzo Stern Hotel are decorated following the rules of the Venetian style and tradition: precious wall fabrics, curtains and drapes, oriental carpets, stuccos, gildings, Murano glass and vases, chandeliers and appliqués created by glassblowing Venetian masters enrich the rooms. And make them even more welcoming when they offer your comfort and services such as Jacuzzi-Bath or Shower (or both in some rooms), a satellite TV, musical channels with cable radio, a telephone with direct external line, air-conditioning, a safe, a mini-bar. Every room has a Wi-Fi connection and Tea-Coffee facilities.

The hotel is even better than the pictures. The real fast was very nice. The room was great. It was a quad room. 4 beds. I couldn't believe how spacious it was. The only problem with the room was the shower. They had a beautiful Hugh tub with a hand held, but no shower. No shore curtain or rod for hand held. Funny for my husband and two large teenage boys, they managed though. The beauty of the hotel made up for any inconvenience. They do not have a restaurant, but restaurants are nearby. We got in late, after 10 pm and all of the nearby restaurants had quit serving. My husband found a pizza place a little ways away and brought it back. So plan your meals out if you will be getting in late. Collapse

As seasoned travelers, we do not recommend this hotel. Upon entering the beautiful hotel, you will be greeted by two things: first, on the registration desk appears an advertisement for the restaurant at Hotel Locanda Vivaldi, a hotel owned by the same company; second, the hotel has a large display case full of blown glass artwork. Without context, seeing either would not give a guest much cause for concern, but they should. As you check in, the hotel Manager will ask if he can make a dinner reservation for you at Hotel Locanda Vivaldi, and he promises to provide a complimentary water taxi (one-way only). We did have a lovely meal and enjoyed a beautiful view. The meal was expensive, which we expected, and the menu was limited. To this point, we were satisfied, but that would change the next day. The Manager also told us that Palazzo Stern offers complimentary boat rides to the island of Murano to see glass blowing factories in action. He told us it was a two hour round trip and we would also would go to another island to see linens being made, then return to the hotel. The Manager arranged for our trip to Murano on our second day in Venice. The Manager, however, left out critical details. When we arrived at the Murano boat dock, a merchant named Alvarro immediately greeted us – myself, my wife, and our two teenage daughters. He then took us in to watch blown glass being made in his store, Schiavone. After a 30 minute presentation, Alvarro then took us to his showrooms of blown glass items, ranging in cost from €500 for four wine glasses to €5000 for other items. Over the next 30 minutes, Alvarro repeatedly pressured us to buy, and propositioned that I needed to spend a substantial amount of money as a quid-pro-quo for his having shown us the glass blowing process. Only after I told him we were not interested did he tell us we would have to arrange for our own transportation off Murano Island. After paying for our own water bus, we arrived at Palazzo Stern and I spoke with the Night Manager, Mr. Andrea. After listening for a few minutes, the cold-faced Andrea said in a steely voice, “I need you to be more specific – just how did he pressure you?” As I provided further details, Andrea chuckled in a mocking way. After apologizing for chuckling, Andrea said the trips to Murano were something Palazzo Stern did to help support the Murano blown glass trades, and he promised to tell the Manager of our unfortunate experience. The next morning, I passed by the Manager three times, but he said nothing to me at all. When I brought up the coercive tactics of Alvarro, the failure to explain that we would only receive a one-way trip to Murano, and the failure to disclose the arrangement between Palazzo Stern and Schiavone, the Manager coldly explained that Palazzo Stern has an arrangement with the Murano glass blowers’ Association, that the Association pays for the water taxi, and that the Palazzo Stern believes it is wholly appropriate to take its guests to Murano in hopes that they will patronize merchants such as Schiavone. The Manager did say he would discontinue sending guests to Alvarro, but he refused to acknowledge that he and Palazzo Stern failed to inform us, as their guests, that the one-way water taxi was paid for by the Association, there would be pressure-filled expectations to make substantial blown glass purchases, and that neither Palazzo Stern nor the Association would provide return transportation, unless of course you made a substantial purchase. We later observed that Palazzo Stern is filled with blown glass made by Alvarro’s company, Schiavone. As an experienced traveler, I view Palazzo Stern’s conduct as unbecoming of a high-class hotel, and as taking advantage of its guests. Palazzo Stern chooses to conceal from its guests the close and seemingly-collusive relationship between Palazzo Stern and Schiavone. And the management of Palazzo Stern preys on its guests who place some level of trust in what is billed as a five star hotel. Suffice it to say we were deeply disappointed and would strongly recommend not patronizing Palazzo Stern. Collapse

We couldn't have chosen a better hotel for our first trip to Venice. It's situated on a quieter part of the Grand Canal but within easy reach of museums, galleries, shops etc. There's also an abundance of restaurants and cafes within a few minutes walk. The vaporetto stop is just to the side of the hotel which is really useful - only 10 minutes to St Mark's Square. The hotel itself is a magnificent building and boasts many interesting features. We stayed in a deluxe room with splendid views across the rooftops. It was furnished in a classic Venetian style and the large bed was really comfortable. Breakfast on the terrace in the morning was always an excellent start to the day with a wide choice of food on offer. All the staff were very pleasant, polite and attentive and we can't recommend the Palazzo Stern highly enough. Collapse
Wunderful Palazzo, very friendly staff

Beside the friendly staff and the amazing location I loved also the location, which is a bit outside the large tourist ways. For the breakfast on the terrace I recommend to have an additional waiter just to manage the pigeons.
