“Carnaval Visit (again)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We stayed at the Danieli for a weekend away without children.
It was the second time, and it was just as amazing as the first time. You feel like you are in the 15th century, with the deco still intact and Louis XV or Marie Antoinette’s everywhere.
The service is impeccable, the breakfast buffet includes Champaign etc. It is on the Piazzo St Marco, so no need to walk much. Water taxi’s stop at the hotel itself, and tourists take pictures from you coming out of the hotel ! It is a bit expensive, but really worth it !

Room Tip: Ask for the renovated wing

myself and my partner stayed at the Danieli just for 2 nights the 13th and 14th february,we won this stay on bed and breakfast basis the breakfast was outstanding and im sure the other meals were too but unfortunately i cannot justify paying 145 euros at least per head so we ate elsewhere.the hotel though is in a great location , staff were friendly and helpful ,venice is lovely but very expensive.

Room Tip: ask for one with a view of the canals

I travelled to Venice with my wife on the 19th February - 23rd February 2013 and stayed in room 262 (Lagoon View). A wonderful 14th century hotel that is exceptionally well located (literaly minutes from the Doge's Palace). The hotel staff are very courteous and the attention to detail is excellent. The Lagoon View rooms offer a wonderful view but be prepared for the noises from the various water taxis coming and going pretty much constantly through the day and night.

Dinner at the hotel restaurant is of a very high quality but prices are very, very expensive (this applies to most of Venice).

Room Service costs are also very expensive so exercise some caution when ordering!

Room Tip: Lagoon Rooms offer spectacular views but suffer from noise pollution from all of the boats.

Stayed 14th february to 18th february and wanted this to be a magical romantic weekend+ for my partner and I. The hotel danieli delivered on this front. The surroundings were beautiful, the staff courteous and helpful and we were left to enjoy our time as we wanted, and when we were elsewhere, everything was made to feel perfect for our return. We did not eat in the restaurant so cannot comment but if it was to the same standard as the rest of the staff delivered I'm sure it would have been delightful. We did have some wonderful cocktails in the bar at the close of each evening and the ambiance and music added soul to our romantic evenings. "If I fall in love...it will be forever...". We have magical memories of this place, hope you find them too....

We stayed at hotel danieli during carnival 2013. The hotel was very accommodating letting us stay only one night like we had wanted instead of their policy of a two night minimum during carnival. We would have stayed longer but the hotel is very expensive and just wanted to stay the night for the experience. The staff was very nice at check in, they even upgraded us to a great room in the front of the hotel with a view of the lagoon. They were helpful with directions to locations in the city. The hotel is beautifully decorated and it was a great experience.

Always have wanted to go to Venice and it lived up to my expectations 200%. A beautiful city and the carnival was magical. Stayed at Hotel Danieli just a short walk away from St Marks Square, so a fabulous location. The hotel is beautiful, breakfast and dinner in the upstairs restaurant fantastic. The view was breathtaking. The only downside is that (as usual) for a high class hotel is that you end up paying a high price for drinks! Also be careful what bottle you order at the hotel bar in the main reception area, as you are likely to end up with one you didn't order and paying more, which was disappointing service by the bar waiters..
