4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

We stayed three nights at the Dona Palace and loved every moment! The Hotel is located a brief walk from the Piazza San Marco down a quaint, narrow street. It was fun walking there from where the water bus left us! Venice is fun to walk around although a bit tricky with luggage due to the steps up and down... More

My wife and I had stayed at the Dona Palace a few years ago and had been pleased with our stay then. We decided to book the Dona Palace again along with the 3 other couples traveling with us for one night after disembarking from a cruise. Four of the others in our group had not previously been to Venice... More

Venice has broad panaromas like no city in the world. Then you turn off of the grand canal and you are in cozy little neighborhoods with small bridges over small canals. The Hotel Dona Palace is amazing in that it creates a very comfortable small-scale experience so close to large-scale Piaza San Marco. The canal that runs on one side... More

Helpful, friendly staff. They allowed us to check-in to our room earlier than check-in time. We had a beautiful bedroom and sitting room overlooking the canal. Free Wi-fi. Just moments away from hundreds of shops and restaurants and gelatti shops and museums and San Marco Square. Darling little garden patio in the back where you can order drinks and watch... More

Quietly located on a tiny street a mere block from St. Marks Square, this small boutique hotel is exquisite, friendly, incredibly well located and a third of the price of the larger "famous name" hotels in this terribly expensive town. As accomodating as any hotel we've visited, they were helpful in providing an early check-in after a long overnight flight... More

This hotel is just steps away from St. Mark's Square. This would ordinarily be a plus, but we felt like we had to fight our way through the crowds each day to go out or come back in. The hotel is nice, with good staff and clean and very spacious rooms. It is very quiet with the windows closed. We... More
