The New Centurion Palace Hotel
As one of the newest luxury hotels to arrive in Venice in 2009, the Centurion Palace is a fashionable contemporary sanctuary that boasts prime waterfront views overlooking Venice’s Grand Canal.
Housed in the former convent of Palazzo Genovese just across the canal from the iconic San Marco Square, the Centurion Palace has the advantage of being tucked away in the quiet, picturesque area of Dorsoduro whilst still being only within a short walk from Venice’s best landmarks and areas. The rooms and suites have been individually decorated in fresh contemporary style, whilst the public spaces include a lovely private garden, butler service and a gourmet Mediterranean restaurant. The hotel’s waterfront lobby, balcony and garden are also a popular pre- and post dinner cocktail spot. Walk to the nearby lively Campo Santa Margherita with its numerous cafes and don’t miss the neighbouring Peggy Guggenheim Museum with one of the best contemporary art collections in Venice.
