Overview

Located on Venice’s famous Grand Canal, the historical Bauer hotel offers old-world charm close to St Mark’s Square. The hotel occupies two buildings, complete with a fabulous Art Deco lobby and elegant public spaces adorned with classic Murano chandeliers, marble floors and brocade fabrics. Most rooms and suites are traditionally decorated, with high ceilings and spacious modern bathrooms, and some overlook the canal. When you’re not exploring the city, you can relax in the opulent lobby, dine at one of two restaurants and enjoy cocktails on the breathtaking bar terrace, overlooking the Grand Canal and the iconic church of Santa Maria Della Salute.

The Bauer enjoys a privileged position in the heart of Venice, just two blocks (around 300 metres) from St Mark’s Square and various boutique shops. It faces the front of the baroque-style Campo San Moisè church and overlooks the Grand Canal. The hotel boasts a private water dock in Rio di San Moisè canal, just off Venice's Grand Canal, so you can easily hop on a water taxi or enjoy a traditional gondola ride. The main train station, Venice Santa Lucia, is just over a mile away, and you can reach Venice Marco Polo Airport from here on public transport via bus, or by taking the vaporetto boat from San Marc.

The elegant rooms and suites spread across the two palatial buildings. Some rooms in the older building are decorated in a traditional Venetian style, with patterned wallpapers, antique furnishings and Rubelli bedspreads. Meanwhile those in the more modern section have a contemporary flair, with softer colour schemes and Art Deco touches. All rooms are fitted with marble bathrooms and most include a combined bathtub and shower – though select Junior and Executive Suites provide a hydromassage bathtub. For unforgettable views, book a spacious Junior Suite overlooking either the San Moisè Church, or partial views of the Grand Canal. Alternatively, larger Executive Suites boast splendid, sweeping views across the city, covering St Mark’s Basin and parts of the Grand Canal.

Dining information

Start your day with a rich buffet breakfast on the Bar Canal terrace which boasts fantastic panoramic city views. The spread comprises a selection of cheeses, cereals, pastries, cakes, fresh fruit and more.

Open for lunch and dinner, the De Pisis restaurant specialises in contemporary Italian cuisine, including fresh seafood dishes. In the warmer months, you can dine alfresco on the lagoon terrace, watching gondolas gently bobbing on the canal. For something lighter, head to Bar Canale, where you’ll find a menu of snacks, appetisers and specially crafted cocktails – including the classic Bellini and Aperol Spritz. The bar’s terrace is renowned for its front-row views across the canal.

Known as one of the highest terraces in Venice, Settimo Cielo offers 360-degree views of the entire city. You can come here to relax in the evening, sipping signature cocktails whilst watching the hustle and bustle below on the water. Under the direction of Michelin starred chef Cristiano Tomei, you can experience a unique culinary journey here with a tempting selection of light bites.

B Bar-Lounge, which is closed during summer, is the perfect place to enjoy creative cocktails and exquisite wines. This bar is popular with guests and locals alike, especially in late autumn when the bar opens for cosy jazz evenings with live music.
