“Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I used Trip Advisor to research hotels in Venice and chose Ca Dei Dogi and was not disappointed. We booked the superior room which is the last room up 5 small flights of stairs. Our bags were carried up for us. This room had a small entrance as you entered with a day bed . Fantastic to rest on and log on to email etc using free wifi. The room was well presented, comfortable bed, pillows and air conditioning. Bathroom was a good size . Shower excellent. Breakfast which is included was delicious. Fruit, yogurt, croissant, apple strudel, cappuccino to order and the omelette to die for. Having just spent a week in the USA where hotel breakfasts are an unappetising mixture of salt, sugar and fat we thought we were in heaven. in a great location near St Marks Square with plenty of restaurants in the area. Run by a delightful couple, we would highly recommend but book well in advance as it is very small and I imagine books out regularly.

Room Tip: Superior room is well worth paying a little extra

We were a group of five and rented the Apartment Luna adjacent to the hotel in early August 2013. The apartment was beautifully fitted out, with a small but useful kitchen and dining area, two decent sized bedrooms, and great air conditioning (a good idea in Venice in August). Le of the bedrooms has two double beds, so can sleep three as long as you're OK with sharing a room.

What makes this place really special is the location. You can see the rear of the Doge's palace from the kitchen and one of the bedrooms, and almost next to the hotel is the prison attached to the palace, and at the end of the calle is the canal that runs under the bridge of sighs - an amazing location.

Stefano was extremely helpful in arranging the booking, and all of the staff were excellent every time we dealt with them. Breakfasts were decent, and the restaurant attached to the hotel seemed to get a good trade, although we didn't actually get the chance to eat there as we were only there for a few days.

We actually tried to book into the hotel based on reviews on Trip Advisor, but they didn't have enough rooms. Helpfully they suggested the apartment, and I am very glad they did.

The apartment isn't particularly cheap, but in comparison to many central hotels it is really pretty decent value, and for the money you get your own apartment in the heart of San Marco, only a few minutes walk from the madness that is Piazza San Marco.

I would stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay. The room we had was very small but still pleasant and although the bathroom was small the shower was quite big and spacious. The breakfast at the hotel was really good and the service was very personal which I liked a lot. The location was fantastic and thanks to the great directions we found it easily. If going back to Venice I would definitely stay here again.

I made a last minute reservation at this very well located hotel (tucked away in a small alley near San Marco Square) and was very pleased with the ground floor single room. The single room was next to the lobby which was disconcerting at first but was very quiet. For a single room, it actually was a decent size. The room was tastefully decorated with a modern bathroom. The A/C greatly appreciated as it was July and allowed me to sleep like a baby everynight (temperature was close to Arctic when I first entered!).

Breakfast was included and plenty. I often skipped lunch!

I have to admit that it took me 10 minutes find the place the first time walking in front of the lane of couple times...but once I got an idea of the city, it was easy to find and close to many touristy and not so touristy restaurants and enoteca.

Highly recommended for the value!

My fiancé, myself, and one of our friends all stayed in the Superior room for two nights this past week on a whirlwind tour of Italy. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect from Dogi but I had read through several of the reviews and I was looking for something that would offer comfortable triple occupancy. The hotel itself is tucked away just behind Piazza San Marco and is an extremely convenient location if you are looking to see the highlights (read: tourist parts) of Venice in a short amount of time as we were. We had no problem finding the hotel (just make sure you take the vaporetto headed in the right direction - from the train station you want to take the No. 1 headed to the left, not right, as the one headed to the right is at the second to last stop) And upon our arrival we were greeted by Stefano. Our room was up several narrow flights of stairs but they were clean and well-lit. The room itself was gorgeous - plenty of space at the top of the hotel and it comfortably held three people. I was very much surprised by the space and updated quality of the bathroom. The daybed area where our friend stayed was in a beautiful blue glass nook at the top of the hotel. It is not separated from the rest of the room by a door but it is off to one side so you are not tripping over each other. There is a small private balcony as well as a lovely communal balcony just outside where you can see tourists peeking out the back side of Doge's Palace.
The breakfast was GREAT, very extensive in terms of selection for a free continental breakfast. We had a harder time finding spots for lunch and dinner - do your research ahead of time! I'd recommend Trattoria Santa Marina.
Overall our stay at CDD was excellent and I felt that it was a very good value given the location, price, and accommodations. Oh and the air conditioner in our room was, as our friend described it, "bionic!" It cooled down the room in a serious way.

We found this hotel perfect for our stay in Venice, just around the corner from San Marco's Square and down a quiet alley. The room we stayed in had a private balcony where you could enjoy the afternoon sun and relax to the sound of gondoliers singing as they weaved through the nearby canals. Suzanna was a great host and very knowledgable - she had great tips for sightseeing, entertainment and dining. Breakfast is excellent and the staff are super friendly. The hotel is located only 3 minutes from the ferry station and is easy to find with Suzanna's directions, so there's no hard slog finding your accommodation through the maze of canals and alleyways - this is a big bonus after your first experience on Venice's Ferry/Bus system.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with balcony as some rooms are small and the extra space will be appreciated.

This hotel is tucked in an alley directly in the shadow of the Doge's Palace. It is shocking how close to all the action in San Marco's square you are, yet how quiet the rooms are. We had a tiny room with a beautiful balcony overlooking a courtyard. In the late afternoon, it was perfect to sit on and hear the distant music from the square while sipping a glass of wine and relaxing before dinner. The breakfast service was nice. They offered us omelets each morning which my husband said were excellent. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Aside from the room being really small (like barely a spot to put your suitcase and no place to unpack clothes except hanging ones), this place was really fantastic. Clean, comfortable and friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a balcony, as it gives you a place to sit that is not your bed!
