From the couple hundred hotels I have been, this was one of three which has contacted me before arrival and they offered services and information, even the hotel was not booked directly from their web page. That is superb! The location is central but located in quiet "court yard" so the noise of overwhelming amount of tourists won't bother even... More

Service was excellent and people were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast has a big variety and you can even have mimosas! Their Cappuccinos are the best we had in Europe. Rooms were very nice. This hotel is on a canal, and the view is very good.

This is a really nice hotel in a great location in Venice. The reception staff were lovely and very helpful. The hotel is a 10minute walk from either side of Grand Canal for water buses to the station and located in a very quiet courtyard 5 mins from St Marks Sqaure. You can also arrive directly at the back of... More

Charming, friendly staff and great location. We appreciated the maps, directions and restaurant recommendations which the staff provided. The room was decorated nicely. Breakfast was great also. Easy access to the waterways for arrival/departure if you choose a gondola.

Really loved this hotel it is very central great location for exploring Venice. We did get lost trying to find it but if you are not brilliant with maps like myself you will get lost in Venice at some time which is all part of the fun!

The Duodo Palace is a delightful 4 star hotel in Venice situated about 10 minutes walk from the St Marks Square. Franceso at the concierge and all staff are most friendly and helpful, the breakfast outstanding, rooms are spotless, overall this must be one of the best small hotels in this lovely city. We shall most certainly return as indeed... More

We stayed at the Duodo Palace Hotel in Venice, a 4.5 stars hotel, for 2 nights over this past June. We were disappointed. It was difficult to locate the hotel. The hotel’s website does not give a map or directions to reach it. It is not well known in Venice as we asked for directions we received none credible and... More

First the positives. Location is ideal with San Marco 5 minutes away and the Rialto is 10 minutes. Service is personal, enthusiastic and helpful . Recommendations for Restaurants and attractions were spot-on. The lobby is small and dark, but clean with an antique elegance. Same for the bar. Rooms were very quiet, both to outside noise and between rooms. Then... More

I have never written a review on a hotel but this hotel was outstanding. First if I ever come back to Venice I am staying at the Duodo Palace Hotel.

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
