Once Palazzo Genovese, today Sina Centurion Palace. A 5 star luxury hotel located on the Grand Canal with stunning views of both the Grand Canal and the traditional venetian internal garden.
The Hotel is located in the heart of the Dorsoduro district next to the Basilica of S. Maria della Salute, Punta della Dogana and the famous Guggenheim museum.
A unique blend between the ancient building’s gothic façade and the contemporary exclusive bespoke design of the interiors; a contrast in harmony with the district where the hotel is located; the most ancient in Venice and home to contemporary art.

A well situated hotel by The Peggy Guggenheim museum. It is right on the canal with a €2 gondola crossing very close by to access to San Marco or across the Acadamia bridge. Room was excellent, we were upgraded on arrival. The bar was good and breakfast was superb with a wide choice of hot and cooked to order or cold. The only downside was the terrible WiFi in the room and around the hotel.
Hotel staff are amazing. Very friendly and always helpful recommending atractions and advising on transportation. Room was fantastic with amazing canal views. Food was great. Breakfast selection was very good with excellent quality. Location couldn't be better being just outside of the main hustle and bustle with great links through venice. Will definitely be back in the future and have recommended to all our friends.
Some of the reviews have been critical, but we found the hotel excellent, with a few reservations. It is luxurious, excellent staff and service - a special shout-out to Elvira in the bar for recommending interesting grappe. Good towels and robes. Our superior room was spacious, well-appointed in a modernistic style, with plenty of room for clothes, shoes etc. I would have liked drawers under the desk and by the bed. The power sockets for the desk are underneath. Why? Good breakfast, and you can request short-order eggs. Their standard coffee is undrinkable, order espresso or cappuccino, which are fine. (I have experienced awful coffee in otherwise excellent hotels. Why?) It is very well located, just two minutes to the Salute vaporetto stop, a few minutes from Accademia and Peggy Guggenheim, and 7 minutes walk from the Zaterre Alilaguna stop to/from the airport. Water taxis come to the front water gate. It looks out on the Grand Canal with a better view from its terrace than from the Gritti's opposite. Our bathroom was spacious, but the shower was in the bath, which could be a problem for guests with a mobility problem. My main criticism, though, was with music (Muzak?) in the breakfast room and in the bar. It was music that few people would choose to listen to and it makes conversation more difficult. It would improve the experience by just turning it off.
