Push the boat out and be treated like venetian royalty
Having uninterupted views of the famous Grande Canale gives guests luxury, amazing location. We have visit the Centurion Palace at the end of February every year for my birthday, and the dates often co incide with Carnavale. All rooms/suites all completely different in colours and styles, I so love the fabulous use of bold colours and the gold walls/floors in the bathrooms, the suites / more expensive rooms at the front have the best views, of the Grande Canale, it is lovely to push open the windows every morning and see life happening below, and sometimes listen to volare being sung from a passings gondola full of passengers. Reception/small lounge/bar and dining rooms have fabulous modern art/great pieces of Murano glass, plus views of the Grande Canale. The icing on the cake is the small terrace at the side of the Grande Canale, great area for lunch with breathtaking views, but we love to sit late at night with an after dinner nightcap watching the lights from the nearby palazzo's glistening on the water - totally magical Breakfast is a great start to a busy day of exploring, If staying for dinner a choice of two Antinoo dining rooms, one red, one white. it is all about 'la dolce vita' sit back relax great service, fabulous food and a great wine list. . The staff are all very friendly/professional, we have been staying here for 7 nights in February for the last 5 years, we feel very much at home and part of the Centurion extended family.
The potential of this hotel has not been fully exploited. Could be so much better. Even then I would not stay anywhere else. Too far from train station and Piazzale Roma but if you can afford a water taxi from the airport then this is you best choice. Been to Venice many times and decided to try a new neighborhood. Dorso duro is hands down the best choice. Away from the mad crowds of central Venice yet one single vaporetto stop to St Marks square. We truly enjoyed our quiet strolls around the area blissfully away from tourists. Hotel could have better beds and a classier more contemporary look but that’s nitpicking.
Lovely hotel on the Grand Canal. Excellent and friendly service. Rooms a little on the small side, but only what I would expect in a small city. Great breakfast and bar. We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night, and it was very good indeed. Right next to Salute vaporetto stop too. Would definitely recommend for a weekend stay.
2 nights in February during Carnival. Great location and wonderfully placed. 2 minutes from The Guggenheim. Fantastic breakfast and service. Views are great. Friendly and helpful staff who are multi lingual. Wonderful canal terrace.
Perfectly acceptable stay
We stayed for 3 nights at the start of Carnivale.. The architecture is impressive however the interior design is modern eclectic unlike traditional Venice hotels All the staff we encountered were helpful and seemed happy in their jobs . We had a second floor deluxe room situated on the left hand side as you look from the Grand Canal. This side of the hotel has a pedestrian walkway immediately adjacent to it - and it was busy, even at 3.30am! The passing crowds aren’t raucous but due to the local architecture the street noise was amplified upwards and even someone pulling a suitcase makes a sound like a car with a faulty exhaust dragging on the ground! The double glazing is insufficient to cope and forget leaving your windows open! If you value quiet or want windows open get a room elsewhere in the hotel. The room was great except for us the pillows - sadly they were like sleeping on balloons. TV OK but lacked worthwhile English language channels Breakfast was OK but there were too many interesting items “at significant extra cost” The breakfast room decor was not for us it was Philippe Starck IKEA modern,not the standard of luxury of a similar 5 star accredited competitor ...but then again it’s not the cost of the Danieli! Breakfast staff were under a lot of pressure and would certainly benefit from an extra “pair of hands” if only to ensure the serving areas were kept stocked and spillages cleaned. We did not have dinner at the hotel. A perfectly acceptable stay
