“3 days in Venice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Friendly people at this venue. Always correct and trying to be helpfull.

Our room could use some paint but hey... we are in Venice. If you want to sleep in a brand new hotel then stay on the mainland. Room service is impecable. Airco functioned as it should be.

This hotel is perfectly situated. Very close to all major attractions, in the heart of the city, but still as if hiding away somewhat in a secret peacefull corner.

Breakfast is a minor point indeed. Although the people from the dining room do the best they can and work really hard to get things done, they still are understaffed and this shows. Never had to wait longer than 5 minutes to be seated though. Then again it might take some time before the bread or the cheese gets replenished and in the meantime... just take a sip of your prosecco which is freely included in the breakfast. The fruit salad bowl is fresh and made with all kinds of exoctic fruits. Not just your every day apple and pear stuff.

I think that I would go back here if I should ever stay in Venice again.

Oh yeah...Internet was free for the whole 3 days. Just ask a login and code at the reception.

The Duodo Palace Hotel is situated in a brilliant location, they have two entries, one from the little's "Venetian's calle" and one from the canal, that one make you feel and enjoy the magic water that surround Venice, and where you can directly take the famous "gondola" or the taxi boat (amazing experience! the hotel arrange it in reasonable price and make sure that the tour goes perfect!)
It's near of Saint Mark's square, Fenice theater, Academia bridge and excellent shops by hand ;-)
Rooms are very well equipped, really comfortable and clean.
The staff take care of you since your entrance, they are all really friendly, just to mention, Sandro at the front desk, thanks of his suggestions of what to visit and where to eat made my vacation just perfect!
thank you very much, I recommend this hotel and I'll certainly come back!!

Room Tip: top floor rooms, best view!

Good location, stylish foyer, large room with big TV, safe, good bathroom and comfortable bed, but staff attitude variable, some friendly, one quite rude, breakfast selection average for the price, WIFI reception only worked in one corner of the room. We stayed at a second hotel on our stay for around 60% of the cost that we were happier with.

Dear Geust,
thank you very much for your nice review about our Hotel and our staff. I thimk you should stay more than one night to say that one person is very rude. Anyway, thanks for the advise about our slow wi-fi. Now we have new spot working very well. Concerning prices, the 40% less of the second night is depending from their availability. Also at Duodo, when we have rooms availables, we do really nice prices or special offers. By the way, have a look in our web site and see what's on sale for winter time!
Sincerely

A nice suprise on our 2 week tour across Italy. The staff was perfect from check-in. The hotel is an 80 Euro water taxi ride. Very nice rooms. Good breakfast. Customer service was great each time we spoke to them about great restaurants or local attractions. We woud stay there again.

Great location, not far from San Marco Square. Lots of shopping around the hotel.

It is a little hard to find the entrance in the Venice side streets but there are small signs, easily missed, unless ours going by water taxis as the hotel has a great canal entrance.

Breakfast is reasonable. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The building itself was beautiful, rooms great and very spacious for Venice, we had a nice canal view and it was very good value for money, (for Venice), I would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: Higher floors with gorgeous views!

My husband and I stayed at the Duodo palace hotel for 3 nights in November 2011. We had a room on the canal which was lovely, it had very high ceilings!
I would recommend staying here as it was a great little hotel, good continental breakfast and close to walk around the beautiful city!
