The hotel is in a great location, next to canals and 3 minute walk from San Marco square! Loads of restaurants and shops on it's doorstep and yet within easy walking distance to some if the quieter areas of Venice! We stayed in a junior suite. The room was ideal for a short stay, had all we needed. However we... More

Superb location, just off St Mark's Square. Friendly staff. Lovely breakfast with great choice (continental style). They bring lovely pastries to your room on arrival as a welcome. We celebrated an anniversary whilst there and again we got pastries and a lovely note of congratulations.

Only just off St. Marks square, The Dona Palace hotel still manages to feel quiet and secluded. We were upgraded to a very large, luxurious suite, with a lovely canal view. The staff are courteous and helpful, we were made to feel very welcome. I gave the review this title because, in spite of it's central location, neither the gondolier... More

Lovely hotel situated near St. Marks, rooms are lovely and comfortable and a lovely garden terrace to watch the gondola's go by and arrive by boat if you wish. Staff were really helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was a little disappointing but maybe we are too fussy. I would recommend this hotel and will definately stay here again.

We stayed at Dona Palace for our honeymoon while in Venice and the hotel was a great little hotel that had a great feel of an old Venetian palace. The hotel was kind enough to upgrade us to a suite so our room was very spacious and the bathroom was very beautiful and had a jacuzzi-type bath. We arrived in... More

The Hotel Dona Palace was the perfect choice for our time in Venice. We were on our honeymoon (& made note of this in our reservation) and were upgraded to a suite! Our room was HUGE! We had a lovely bathtub, sitting room with tv and a large bedroom with a view of a small canal. The staff was very... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful.....my daughter left an expensive coat behind in a wardrobe and the staff kindly arranged to have it couriered home for her. Raphael who attended to us at breakfast each morning was an absolute delight. After day... More

Location could not be much better. So close to some of the biggest sights in Venice! Entrance in a small alley and the hotel has a small terrasse just on the side of a channel, nice in summertime. We had a suite on 1st floor (no.12). It was on a corner with view to the water - it is maybe... More
