Dona Palace is a very well located cozy hotel with very large, clean and comfortable rooms. Situated on the canal very close to San Marco square and walking distance to all attractions. The staff was very friendly and helpful when needed directions or advice on restaurants and tours. Highly recommend this beautiful boutique hotel. We will definatly go back.

A good little find with friendly helpful staff, an extra special mention goes to the gentleman whom served us breakfast the first two mornings - the best coffee we had found in weeks after travelling through Holland, Paris and the UK, our only regret that he was not working on our final morning to grab his name and thank him...

The Dona Palace is ideally situated just minutes from St. Mark's Square. We were warmly greeted on arrival and our deluxe room was upgraded to a junior suite overlooking the canal. The room was quite large (even by North American standards). Staff were very attentive, helpful. They made hotel reservations and arranged for transportation, although you could negotiate better fares... More

Venice was the last destination in my trip to Italy and this was the poorest accommodation i stayed in. Rooms were small but probably normal size for most hotels. Carpet was shabby throughout and furniture dated. Staff were friendly though and recognised me -gave me a message I was waiting for when I walked in one time - even though... More

Booked a room here based on TA reviews But this hotel is not Nice. Small rooms, no water in the minibar, and the rooms are small and have very noisy AC. The reception gave me crazy prices on rental of taxi boats and gondola. You go outside the hotel and you save 40%. They claim they have wifi but it... More

The Dona Palace is a small, friendly hotel. It doesn't look much from the front, you could walk right past it and not even notice it, but once inside, it is a lovely stylish hotel. I chose it because of it's location, 2 minutes walk from St Mark's Square. You are right in the middle of the action, surrounded by... More

Surprisingly large room for Venice. Bathroom is very nice. Breakfast room is beautiful. We were there with a large group and rooms are very different. Location was perfect, has water taxi dock. Favorite spot tho was the back patio, watching the gondolas go by. Must purchase a drink to sit there, oh well! Pizza, salad spot across the street is... More

A lovely hotel with great staff in an excellent location. I had contacted the hotel before arrival as this trip was for my friends' birthday celebrations and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating, friendly and helpful. Adrian at the front desk and the blonde lady who works in the bar at the hotel and opposite ( I never caught... More

This hotel is in a great location and every staff member has been friendly and helpful. We arrived by water taxi, were met by hotel staff who then explained nearby attractions and happy hour nearby. A nice room with a good size bathroom. Very happy. We will be sorry to leave in the morning. We were even offered a breakfast... More

Arrived by water taxi to private hotel entrance on the canal to save dragging luggage through san marco (which I probably enjoyed more than the gondola ride), to be greeted by a polite and helpful reception staff member. Was allowed to check in early as our room was ready and despite some reviews saying they were small, our basic room... More
