After reading reviews, my husband and I chose Dona Palace Hotel for our first experience in Italy to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. We could not be happier with our decision. We arrived via private water taxi, which was well worth the money considering the hotel is right on a canal. We were a few hours shy of check-in and... More

I recently stayed 2 nights in this well appointed hotel. Arriving by water taxi, hotel staff assisted the taxi driver to dock so I could alight the craft. I was then escorted to reception for a smooth check-in. Staff were accommodating and professional. The room I booked was a deluxe double, exceedingly large in terms of standard double room size....

This was the 1st time we stayed at Dona Palace after having stayed at the Orion Hotel on a number of occasions previously. We can't speak highly enough of the reception staff who were helpful and friendly, the breakfast room staff who greeted you with a smile every morning and even the cleaning staff who were bright and cheery when...

Stayed for our 10th wedding anniversary. The hotel left us a cake to share in our room and a card, lovely idea. We stayed in a junior suite which was extremely spacious and well furnished. Staff went out of their way to be helpful and spoke excellent English. Superb location just off St Mark's square. Breakfast set you up for... More

We had room 30 which had great disabled facilities. It was very clean and comfortable. Air conditioning/heating a bit noisy but we didn't need it on at... More

The hotel is perfectly located 2 mins walk from St Marks square and 10 mins to Rialto Bridge. Great hotel for a short break, my mum and I shared a standard room. It was very large and looked over the courtyard. We had a big shower and decent size bathroom. Breakfast was just right- mixture of cereal, yogurts, cakes, fruit,... More

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.
