Behind it are Campo San Barnaba and Campo Santa Margherita, an area where you can still savor the real Venice.This area is often enlivened by a small neighborhood market. 

The structure, an authentic four-star historic building, is cared for in every detail , and is enriched by antiques, sculptures, and valuable furniture. Many rooms overlook the Grand Canal, others the Rio dei Malpaga and others the rear garden in the heart of Venice.

The Hotel Palazzo Stern has a terrace\ garden on the ground floor, overlooking the Grand Canal, measuring 90 square meters, and a terrace (on the roof) with a panoramic view equipped with a Jacuzzi.
