We came to Venice for our honeymoon and researched rooms to stay. Based on the reviews and price of this place being a 4 star and all we booked. BIG MISTAKE! Not sure why this is considered a 4 star hotel but it is not to me. We checked in and explained that it was our honeymoon and asked if... More

We stayed at the historic Dona Palace hotel before a cruise. It has a great location for seeing the key sights in Venice. Easily accessible by water taxi from the land taxi terminal. The small elevator to each floor is good for your heavy luggage. The front door opens on a narrow walkway typical of Venice that is a short... More

We were able to take a water taxi directly to the hotel...it was great. And upon arrival we were upgraded to a deluxe room overlooking the canal. The room was on the fourth floor and was huge! We could open our windows and watch the gondolas and water taxis go by. And the hotel had a wonderful cake in our... More

Stayed for 3 nights in the top floor suite with the roof terrace. As others have mentioned, some furnishings a bit tired looking but other than that this was a great place to stay. The location is excellent, really quiet but just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the main square and endless streets of shops, restaurants... More

Really lovely hotel nice not too big.Staff very obliging and pleasant, gentleman and lady serving at breakfast also very pleasant. Situated just about a five minute walk from St. Marks Square and two minutes from several restaurants. The only downside was there were no tea or coffee facilities in the room, which would have been a nice touch.

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary in Sept and were far more impressed than we expected from any reviews. The room was large, with views of the canals on an upper floor, clean with a large bathroom. The service of the bellman was professional and the concierge desk Adrian was excellent. His discreet recommendations of restaurants were brilliant and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in the rooftop room, believe it was called executive suite on one site. It was a large room, with an adjacent sitting area and access to the rooftop deck where there is a jacuzzi tub (they will fill it for you with 30 minutes notice). Pros: comfortable bed, even though it was 2 mattresses... More
