Why We Love This Hotel

  • Historic boutique hotel on the Grand Canal
  • Near the Accademia Gallery & the Peggy Guggenheim Collection
  • There's a rooftop terrace with a Jacuzzi & views reaching as far as the Dolomites
  • Elegant rooms have free Wi-Fi, exposed beams & Murano chandeliers


Set on the Grand Canal, Palazzo Stern impresses with helpful staff, Moorish-style architecture and a small rooftop terrace (with a Jacuzzi for rent) overlooking Venice’s main waterway. According to Fodor’s, this "is almost reason alone to stay here" -- on a clear day you can even see as far as the Dolomites.

The hotel is in the residential Dorsoduro district, slightly set back from tourist hot spots such as St. Mark’s Square, but still within walking distance of the Accademia Gallery and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. For sightseeing further away, the hotel has its own private dock, and the nearest waterbus stop (Ca’ Rezzonico) is just around the corner.

It's a boutique property, so the emphasis here is on the views and its 15th century artifacts -- the columned reception, carved staircase and frescoed upstairs lobby are especially striking. Don't expect tons of amenities, but there is a monastic-style breakfast room done in white with gilded nooks and Gothic windows, and an over-the-top bar with a romantic waterfront patio.

Rooms have exposed beams and plenty of gilding, with mosaic-tiled bathrooms with either hydro-massage showers or Jacuzzi tubs. Some have Juliet balconies and canal views, but a few of the standard rooms are lit by skylights. Ornate drapes, Murano chandeliers and parquet floors add to the glamor in pricier rooms and suites -- some with original features, such as corner fireplaces -- have canal views.
