Sina Centurion Palace

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Centurion Palace is located on the Grand Canal very near the Salute church and just a once stop vaporetto ride to St Mark's Square. It combines peaceful seclusion with easy access to all the main sites. The terrace overlooking the canal is great for a drink and watching the passing scene The rooms we had (standard) was very comfortable and well furnished. The hotel staff were helpful and very polite and the breakfast was very good, The hotel restaurant is excellent if less atmospheric than some of the many alternatives within a short walk. We loved it and hope to return soon.

$500 for this dump, the reservation people were no help in changing a reservation and the book a room web site was not available, I was sent away with one of the worst experiences ever with a supposedly great hotel.

We enjoyed this hotel for not only it's location but the outside bar/cafe. It was particularly beautiful in the evenings to sit outside near the canal. Easy boat taxi ramp and close to all major sites in Venice. Front desk staff was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. The rooms were a little small but overall comfortable and clean. Great breakfast and great cocktails.

We had a junior suite room with a Canal View. We arrived and our room with spottless and with the most Amazing Canal View. We loved this hotel as it was in the centre. All the staff and the receptionist were very helpful and cheerful. We got a complementary Boat trip to Marano island where there's the glass factory which is a must place to see in venice. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Our room was lovely enough, but just not quite up to snuff. A little tired, perhaps.The staff were very nice and helpful. The food and beverage prices were unuasually high, even by Venice standards. It was a little strange having an exercise bike with dedicated tv in our room, that space could have been used for something a bit more useful.

We spent four nights at the Centurion Palace. Room excellent. Staff helpful and charming and breakfasts first class. The only bug bear we had was that over three of the days we were there the hotel had corporate parties in the evening and the facilities of the hotel i.e bar, restaurant and courtyard were 'out of bounds' to residents. We just felt that the hotel was more interested in keeping the corporate parties happy and residents came second. Unfortunate as location for the Vaporetto perfect. As this was the case I don't think we would stay here again.

Stayed in two adjoining rooms in August. One room was light and roomy, the other was a dungeon - very small and dark. Finishes were nice, modern, and fun. Food and drink prices are utterly outrageous - probably is the case for all hotels of this type in the area. Good attentive service. Room included a water taxi directly the airport, which I recommend.

For this expensive hotel, I hoped a top quality meeting in the airport As they charged me 200 Euros extra for this private service. But unfortunately I had to go up and down a few times with my heavy suitcase and could not see him and had to call the hotel! Only after then they told me where exactky he strod and instead of "him"; I "picked" him "up"!.. He was holding a small paper paper which mad me thought that I chose a wrong hotel; expensive but unprofessional. Then I was in my room and there was no canal view. The room was comfy; the bed and the shower were comfortable. The hotel has a good location and in walking distance to some nice shops, bars and restos.

The highlight of this hotel is the historic exterior and the location. Arriving via water taxi along the Grand Canal to the private dock of the hotel is unforgettable. We loved the Dorsoduro location which is fairly central yet well beyond the crowds of San Marco. Our room was quiet at night despite overlooking the courtyard and pedestrian street. The room seemed a little worn and dated. Beds were comfortable, including the cot which had a proper twin mattress. The spacious bathroom was entirely covered in gold leaf: we had shower only, no tub. Shower had great water pressure though the floor was a little slippery and did not drain well, we wore flip flops to manage that challenge. The sink was unique, drained into a trough that went under the basin, could not figure out how to plug it so doing hand laundry was difficult. Tasty breakfast buffet was included: many options of meat, cheese, eggs, pastries, bread and cereal. We enjoyed eating on patio overlooking the canal the first morning, ate inside afterwards to avoid dive bombing seagulls. Breakfast room staff were lovely. Was surprised that this 5 star hotel did not have seem to have a concierge, stopped by front desk twice for information regarding boat service to Lido, got 2 different answers. In the end, the information did not help us get to where we wanted to go. Just looking at a schedule/map together would have been helpful. Tip: While walking across the Accademia bridge to San Marco is easy enough, spending a few euro to take a traghetto from just west of the hotel can be worthwhile to save time, beat the heat and save the feet.

We stayed at the Sina Centurion Palace from Sunday to Wednesday last week. The Location of the hotel is really great, you can walk everywhere but you are away from the big hustle. The room we had however was not nice, very tiny in some back part of the hotel. Everything looked old and the room was not clean at all. To get to the rooms you have to go through very dark corridors with nearly no lights which made me wonder what do they not want us to see that they made it so dark. The Staff was ok and the view from the terrace overlooking was fabulous. But it is definitely not a 5 Star Hotel to me. Too dirty, no eye for details, things missing in the room and all in all quite run down. Venice is a beautiful place, we will come again but will choose a different hotel. Jasmine
