Jen and I spent two nights in Venice, staying at the Hyatt Centric Murano Venice. This property is located next to Venice on the neighboring island of Murano. The island is a short boat trip from the main island of Venice and ferries take about 20-25 minutes. In contrast to the dense tourist traffic of Venice, Murano is famous for their glasswork and a peaceful oasis. While some reviews make it seem like the hotel is hours away, the property is easily accessible and there is a water bus station right in front of the hotel. Jen and I were thoroughly impressed by this property. Here’s the full review!

The Hyatt Centric Murano is a category 3 property with points per night ranging from 9,000-15,000 points. During our visit, I was able to book two nights at the standard award rate of 12,000 points per night for a total of 24,000 points. Additionally, as a Hyatt Globalist I also had several suite upgrade certificates in my account. I applied one to our reservation and was booked into a Duplex Suite.
The Hyatt Centric Venice Murano is located about 30 minutes by public ferry from Venice’s central train station. The boats are located right in front of the train station and you can’t miss them. Jen and I were taking the train from Milan, so we caught a ferry to Murano. There is a stop right in front of our hotel and within a minute of landing in Murano, we were awaiting check in.
Check in was quick and easy, with the staff also putting us down for a complimentary boat ride to Venice’s Marco Polo Airport a few days later. A water taxi on the same route could easily cost $100 so this was a nice bonus.
As noted earlier, our room was a duplex suite and felt reminiscent of a lofted apart one would find in New York or other urban areas. This property has 119 guest rooms including 31 duplex suites and a few other premium suites. The room was spacious and had a sun room that could be controlled via bedside buttons. The sleeping area was upstairs leaving the bottom floor nice and open. The bath room was also interesting, having a stone bath that doubled as a shower.
The property has a bar and restaurant that also serves their breakfast buffet. Similar to the Hyatt Centric Milan Centrale, Jen and I also received complimentary breakfast daily. The breakfast buffet typically cost around $30 per person.
The buffet had a few more items that the Hyatt Centric Milan, but generally the same spread of pastries, Italian cured meats, and cheeses. Breakfast also included eggs cooked to your preference and unlimited juices and coffee. The coffee namely lattes and cappuccinos were delicious and I enjoyed the never ending rounds of Bresaola.
A safe haven for the heavy foot traffic of Venice, the Hyatt Centric Murano is an excellent property for exploring Venice and neighboring archipelago of Islands. The property is nicely furnished, offering 31 spacious duplex suites making it easy for Hyatt Elites to score a complimentary upgrade or use an upgrade certificate. The property itself is also easily accessible, with a public boat station just in front. The hotel’s breakfast is also wonderful with a wider array of meats, pastries, and fruits than what you normally get at a U.S. based property. This property is worth a look when planning a trip to Venice!
