Stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Although the location of this hotel is very convenient, literally, 5 min walk to St. Marco, the hotel itself was the worst experience out of the entire trip (we were in Rome, Florence and Venice and booked the same class hotels in every city). The room was very small and furniture is definitely overdue... More

Rooms were a little dated, but the bathrooms were fairly nice. This hotel was somewhat hard to find at first, but the location ended up being fairly good. It was close to some restaurants, and the proximity to St. Marks was very nice. Overall, I'd stay here again.

We stayed three nights in this charming hotel located in the heart of Venice. The staff was exceptionally helpful, especially with transportation issues (only water taxis in Venice). The hotel is located in an old palace (mansion) on one of small the canals. The rooms had an old world charm, meaning the décor is a bit outdated, but it was... More

The room was so small I felt the walls squeezing the life out of me, the air condition is controlled by the staff at the reception it's either hot or you will catch hyperthermia. Breakfast is so poor. Frequent Traveller.

Stayed for 1 night after our cruise. Thankfully we had booked a private transfer or would never have found it. Thats not the hotel's fault, its just that Venice is a maze.

Me and my friend stayed 2 nights at this hotel, first it is not easy to find and not easy access from the Vaporetto a long walk with many stairs (bridges) especially if you have luggage. Second, I had printed a voucher from tripadvisor for a free upgrade in case of availability so the receptionist looked at it so indifferently... More

This hotel is perhaps the perfect location, out of the bustle but easy strolling distance to everything and on its own canal, and near a beautiful square with the necessary wine drinking spot, felt like a local in no time. the staff are great, rooms are 'Venetian' which was just as you would want.

Stayed at the Duodo Palace in Venice from the 21st July- 24th July 2014. Nice hotel, very clean and tidy. Staff were relatively friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice. We didn't arrange a private taxi boat from airport to hotel as ridiculously priced (150 euros each way) so we got the river taxi roughly 15 euros per person. Took one... More

This hotel is tucked away near the Venice Opera. Although difficult to find, if you listen to the advice of the reception staff (we sadly didn't initially) there is a simple route taking only 10 minutes to the main sites in St Mark's square. Our room was up 2 flights of stairs, was comfortable and decorated in a traditional style.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Conveniently located in the heart of Venice, Duodo Palace Hotel is set within a historical building, and has been beautifully renovated and restored to create a new four-star hotel in Venice. Saving some of the most important architectural elements from this 600 year-old palazzo, including the frescoed ceilings in each bedroom, the hotel has a truly Venetian feel. Literally located a stone’s throw from La Fenice, the hotel could not be more centrally located. You can stroll to San Marco Square, the Rialto Bridge, or the Accademia, in 10 minutes or less. The top floor accommodations offer sweeping views of the city’s rooftops and major monuments. Glance below and you can watch a gondola slowly glide by your window. Offering direct access to the hotel from the canal, your water taxi can drop you at the door of the Duodo Palace Hotel where you will be warmly greeted by the staff. The hotel’s 38 bedrooms, adorned with beautiful Venetian fabrics, offer the modern amenities required by today’s traveler, including fully marble baths and plush towels. Relax in the cozy bar, or enjoy a book in the study that has the remains of a piscine - an ancient well - where you can almost hear the voices from the past as they share the day’s gossip Welcome to Venice ... more   less
