Friendly staff and convenient location. Décor is very, very tired. Wi-Fi only in common areas, which we were aware of when we booked. But, it turned out to be more inconvenient than we expected. They do provide seating in the hall to sit and use Wi-Fi, but the seating is dingy and dirty. It was expensive for what we got.... More

We spent 3 nights here and were definitely disappointed in the overall appearance of the room and miserable breakfast. It felt pretty dingy and was probably the worst of 4 hotels we stayed in while in Italy. It lacked simple things like no place to set the soap in the shower or bag caddy. The owners were very nice, friendly... More

My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights. Our first impression was poor - we had a night porter who was not helpful (I think he was confused and nervous). But in the morning, all was resolved without any irritation and the service was phenomenal from then on. The room was not impressive. There were a few ants, and... More

If you are seeking a glamorous room and luxury, move on. Hotel Doni has an incredible location on a canal. You will feel like a local when you stay here. Yes, the wall paper is peeling. You have to share a bathroom. There is a generous breakfast, as stated in another review. If you have a small sense of adventure... More

My friends and I stayed here for only 2 nights. From the moment we stepped in the office door, we felt unwelcome. It only got worse after the lady that owns the place showed us our room. Being from Canada, I've grown up using doorknobs and bolt locks, you wouldn't think this would be of any significance however, after the... More

My husband and I stayed four nights at the Doni hotel, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. True, it is not new or luxurious, it is old and maybe even shabby, but the things that matter are abundantly present: Hot water, shower pressure? Yes. Comfortable bed? Yes. Convenient location? Yes. Quiet? Yes. Clean? Yes, very much so (do not mistake shabby... More

I want so much to like this hotel - the proprietors are helpful and friendly, the location is great, the breakfast is good - but it's also a bit of a shambles. The bathrooms need to be renovated and better cleaned, the wallpaper is peeling, and "air conditioning" is the freestanding unit that requires you to keep the window open... More

My wife and I arrive in Venice on board a cruise ship. I arranged a three night stay at Hotel Doni so we could explore Venice before returning home to Texas. A friend had stayed at Hotel Doni and liked it and Rick Steves travel guide recommended the place. I really liked the place. It was clean, simple and well... More

Very basic place to stay. Location was unbeatable being very close to St Marks and the Grand canal vaporetto stops. The room we has was in need of updating. It was old and tired. The staff was helpful, friendly and spoke good English. The breakfast was good - no complaints there. But the facility needs work. I would only stay... More

It's an old building, but our room was big and very comfortable, with a big bed and a good heater. Breakfast is very simple, but good. The Staff if very friendly and helpful!!! Cheap place in the center of Venice, 3 minutes from the St. Marcos square! If you look for a place in the center and cheap, this one... More
