No Better Place.
We chose this hotel as it featured in "The Times" as one of the best hotels in Venice. It did not disappoint and we loved the modern twist on the old style which complimented and enhanced many of the original features. The location is the best, right opposite "The Gritty Palace" and next to the famous church that is on everybody's list to visit. Venice was very quite because of lack of tourists due to COVID-19, but every venue takes the necessary steps to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable visit. I would recommend this hotel to everybody, and I suggest that whilst you are there you pop into the other 5 star hotels to compare them to this superb hotel, then pat yourself on the back for choosing The BEST!" Thank you for a great stay, we hope to be back again soon.
A touch of class
A wonderful hotel, beautiful setting. The staff were friendly, competent and attentive without being to subservient. The food was of Michelin quality. The front porch bar overlooking the Grand Canal is a wonderful place for a sundowner. Highly recommended.
Super canalside hotel in Venice
Stayed at the Centurion for four nights last week - absolutely fabulous. Great location close to the Salute church (and vaporetto stop) in less touristy Dorsodouro just across the Grand Canal from San Marco. Hotel is modern-styled but set in a beautiful palazzo. Very friendly and helpful staff. Totally recommended.
Perfect location for a perfect stay
The hotel is situated on the Grand Canal and we were lucky enough to be given a room with a view of the canal. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast could be had on the balcony next to the canal.
Grand Canal, Grand Hotel - Sina Centurion Palace
We spent a long weekend at The Sina Centurion Palace and it was delightful. I loved the setting of the hotel, in the quiet district of Dorsoduro, on the Grand Canal. The building from the canal side is beautiful and has two lovely terraces right on the canal. It is conveniently situated close to the Salute water stop for the water taxi, or you can use one of the private taxis that the hotel will arrange for you. On arrival we were greeted by name and the staff were extremely friendly. Our room was not ready, however, it was a hot day and we had been travelling since 3.00am, so I asked if it would be possible to get a room earlier. Ten minutes later our room was ready. The room was a Superior room, so large and very stylish, with a large freestanding bath at one end and an enormous, most comfortable bed at the other end. We had a court yard view, which was nice. I expect that the Canal facing rooms are more expensive. The bathroom, though small, was very well equipped with more than enough towels, and a great variety of amenities, which had been very well thought out. Bathrobes and slippers; enough coat hangers and space to put clothes and shoes. The shower was a bit of a disappointment – more style over substance but a relatively minor issue. We had lunch on the terrace the first day, which was nice, again staff friendly and efficient. Breakfast was served at the table, in the dining room, due to the Covid situation and I should imagine if we were in normal times that there would have been a large buffet. We were not able to help ourselves, but were served at the table, by again extremely friendly staff, although the menu was not extensive. The area was quiet and very close to the Peggy Guggenheim Museum. There are many delightful squares and restaurants with enchanting bridges across the canals. We found it an easy walk from the hotel to San Marco, via the Academia Bridge, however, with the water taxi stop so close by, you could jump on the water taxi at any stage. We bought a three-day pass, which was reasonable and was quite interesting to see everyday Venetians going about their daily lives. On our second day, the concierge arranged a trip to Murano for us. We took a private water taxi from the hotel to the Island, where we were shown the glass blowing process and given an extensive tour of the factory with all the beautiful glass objects. This craft has been in existence since the 15th century. The craft is handed down through the generations.
