Centurion Palace Venice: luxury 5 star hotel with Grand Canal view
During the restoration of the beautiful building that was once known as the Palazzo Genovese in Venice, in the heart of the hotel a coin of Antinous is found by chance, a character dear to the emperor Hadrian, in whose honor the Hotel under construction will be named Centurion Palace.
Overlooking the Grand Canal and St. Mark’s Square, and located next to the famous Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute, jewel of Venetian Baroque style, the 5-star luxury Centurion Palace Hotel offers maximum comfort in the historic Sestiere Dorsoduro, one of the most touristy districts in Venice thanks to the presence of museums, palaces and churches, but also restaurants and bars.
Your stay at Centurion Palace in Venice will be romantic and charming, caressed by the placid waters of the lagoon, enjoying the pleasure of sleeping in an ancient building steeped in history and surrounded by Venice’s mysterious alleys that lead to the discovery of contemporary wonders as the Guggenheim Museum and the new pole of Punta della Dogana.

Venice and Rome, land and sea, ancient and modern. The Centurion Palace, one of the latest masterpieces by Sina Hotels group, deliberately, and successfully, plays with contrasts. The hotel was founded in 1892 and boasts a fine Italian neo-gothic façade with a central section decorated with bows and shamrocks – similar in shape to those of the facade of the Doge’s Palace – which conceals a distinctly modern and eclectic personality of interiors, with a strong design, bold colors and unique atmospheres.
This is also reflected in the 50 rooms and suites, all different from each other and all overlooking views of rare beauty. The rooms feature exposed beams and wooden floors. All the air-conditioned rooms at the Centurion Palace in Venice boast practical and functional furniture: they are equipped with a mini bar, flat-screen TV and a modern bathroom with a bathrobe and slippers.
The Presidential Suite boasts large windows overlooking the Grand Canal, thus absorbing every nuance of color, lights and sounds of this magical city.
The Centurion Palace serves a rich breakfast buffet with sweet and savory foods in the morning, while the Antinoo’s Lounge & Restaurant, the hotel’s elegant restaurant also overlooking the Grand Canal, nourishes the most refined palates with gourmet dishes of Venetian specialties, as well as Italian and international dishes, to be enjoyed with a good glass of wine.
The Centurion Palace is also perfect for all those business people who are looking for a charming location that will guarantee the success of any meeting or business event. For small, prestigious meetings, Centurion Palace offers a meeting room equipped with wireless Internet access that can accommodate up to 50 people, while the dining room of Antinoo’s Lounge & Restaurant is perfect for banquets and receptions.
Finally, the hotel is also equipped with a private dock with direct access to the canal and private garden. Guests have access to a private pier for arrivals by water taxi. The Salute water-bus stop is also located opposite the hotel.

And if these people work for us in a superlative atmosphere like that of the Centurion Palace in Venice, the chances of being disappointed are nil!
In short: The Centurion Palace is one of the best hotels in Venice. In a game of contrasts it offers sophistication and modernity, complemented by an impeccable service that exceeds all expectations.
