Conveniently located in the heart of Venice, Duodo Palace Hotel is set within a historical building, and has been beautifully renovated and restored to create a new four-star hotel in Venice. Saving some of the most important architectural elements from this 600 year-old palazzo, including the frescoed ceilings in each bedroom, the hotel has a truly Venetian feel. Literally located a stone’s throw from La Fenice, the hotel could not be more centrally located. You can stroll to San Marco Square, the Rialto Bridge, or the Accademia, in 10 minutes or less. The top floor accommodations offer sweeping views of the city’s rooftops and major monuments. Glance below and you can watch a gondola slowly glide by your window. Offering direct access to the hotel from the canal, your water taxi can drop you at the door of the Duodo Palace Hotel where you will be warmly greeted by the staff. The hotel’s 38 bedrooms, adorned with beautiful Venetian fabrics, offer the modern amenities required by today’s traveler, including fully marble baths and plush towels. Relax in the cozy bar, or enjoy a book in the study that has the remains of a piscine - an ancient well - where you can almost hear the voices from the past as they share the day’s gossip Welcome to Venice

Hotel's Favorite
Hotel is in a terrific location. All the reception staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Rooms spacious and very comfy. Breakfast buffet was good. There is a great selection of restaurants right around the corner and St Marks is just 10 mins away on foot.

Oh boy, are we glad to get home. Right the good stuff. The location of this place is brilliant. No more than 20 minutes walk to any of the major sights in Venice. Right, that is that done. When we arrived, we were greeted by the concierge. Well greeted as in I need your passports and credit card details. There was no small talk. No "how was your flight?"" Have you been to Venice before?" Nothing. It was not rude, it just was not pleasant. Room 601. Classic twin room. Now we did go for the cheapest room at the hotel but the description and photograph showed, when we booked it, it to be a spacious area with elaborate furnishings. What we got what was a 12 foot box room with two single beds covered with a thin duvet in a plain white duvet cover. A fridge that you could not open fully as the bed(s) were in the way on which was perched (precariously) a flatscreen tv. Two small bedside cabinets and a small round table with one chair at the foot of the bed. The table and chair were useless and in the way. My wife and I could not pass each other in the room as there was not enough space. One of us had to sit on the bed. The bathroom had a shower attachment but no facility to shower. It could not be attached to the wall and there was no shower screen anyway. The hairdryer looked like it came from the 1960s and when my wife used it she looked she had been electrocuted (she has long hair and it frizzed). Speaking of electricity there were three sockets. One for the fridge, one for the tv and one for us. In this day and age people tend to carry around awkward items like mobiles and vapes and other electrical stuff. I was scared to use the socket as it looked like I was going to pull it out of the wall. We were not to know that the for us was for the mosquito repellant. The room was hot (I think we were above the kitchen) so we opened the window at night. We got bit. A lot. My wife cannot see out of her left eye as she was bit on her eyelid. I look like a spotty teenager again. Luckily (to me) it is not painful, but my wife is distressed. If this hotel is a palace then we had the servants quarters. Or the food locker. When we left, the concierge (different one this time) again did not engage in pleasantries. "How was your stay?"" Have you had a good time?" He only seemed interested in my credit card bill. It certainly is not 4 star and it only gets 1 because of its location. My wife and I loved Venice and we would like to come back, but.................

Duodo Palace is a great location, located on a canal with pick up and drop off water taxi, which I highly recommend. The hotel is very quaint and clean. Book a canal view room, you will not be disappointed. The only complaint is that the shower in our room was basically a bathtub with a shower attachment, no shower door. Not a huge deal but not the best when you want to stand in a nice hot shower. Also, the bed was a bit firm, again, not a huge deal if you are used to a firm bed. We did not have the breakfast, but we did have delicious cappuccinos in the morning! The staff was very attentive and helped with our water taxi service to the rental car location. We were very happy with our stay and highly recommend this hotel for the location and price!

The Hotel Duodo Palace was rated a 4 star, but was closer to a 1 star. We booked a Junior Suite, but it was nothing like their web site pictures. The room had only two outlets (one was on a floor baseboard). The bathroom sink would not hold water, & the partial shower glass swung in both directions (water on floor). There were no wall hangings in the room . Two sections had unfinished wall remodeling that had bare concrete/stucco sections. We immediately went back to the front desk to say a mistake was made on the versus the room reserved, but he insisted it was a junior suite. The included breakfast always had cold coffee & scrambled eggs. The two breakfast rooms were small, and one had to be filled before they allowed guests in the other. We would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Dan & Mary Ann Yakel

Dear Dan & Mary Yakel, We already addressed the concerns that you expressed to the Travel Agency which was including many bullet points for your entire travel. The transcript sent to your Travel Angecy was: " I have checked their reservation and I confirm you that they have been assigned to room 107 (29,47sqm) which is our largest Junior Suite with Canal View. The room has a bathtub and the side protection is for half of the length of the tub in order to leave sufficient space to get in and exit the bathtub. I have looked up in our Maintenance Log and Guest Log but Mr&Mrs Yakel – during or after their stay – did not communicate to us any room issue nor requests to see another Junior Suite with Canal View. " Duodo Palace hotel is located in a historical building - of the 16th century - that has been renovated and restored to maintain the décor and the Venetian style. You can experience a true Venetian feel. What you defined as remodeling is the décor of the the original state of the Palace that cannot be altered. Our Continental Breakfast includes homemade cakes, pancakes, fresh fruits, boiled eggs, sweet and savory products, also gluten free on request. We have as well some premium items (such as scrambled eggs, bacon) to choose from the menu available at every table. For the coffee we do have two large thermos for the American Coffee and our Staff is always available to prepare an italian coffee, american coffee, cappuccino, hot tea or hot chocolate. We hope to have an opportunity to better your experience with us whenever your travels bring you back to Venice. Yours sincerely, Irvin Surace Front Office Manager

Lovely room. Small but sufficient. In a back alley. Quiet. Great location. Water and street access. Close to St Marks square but away from the crowds. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. Small patio by their door for an afternoon break. Highly recommend.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Very poor service. Minimal option for breakfast if you’re vegetarian/vegan. Room were only cleaned 2/3 days. Bathroom was mouldy on top of ceiling. Breakfast included but on last day was waiting for taxi - requested to give coffee in waiting area, keep in mind it’s fully paid beforehand- refused to give in waiting area. Would not recommend to stay here a tall.

My mother and I found our stay as fabulous!!! We will return! ALL the staff are extremely helpful in every way. Our suite overlooking the canal, gave us the true and ultimate Venice experience. The location is perfect!!! Download MAPS.ME before your arrival, or on site. It well help you to navigate Venice, as it is like labyrinth. We have stayed in many 5* hotels, but for this value - Duomo Palace exceeds. Thank you, Duomo Palace - for making our stay memorable.

Fully heartless and unaccommodating. The pillows are hard as bricks the the breakfast is $15 and consists of grocery store croissants and boxed orange juice. The main guy in the linen suit Gave me nothing but a shoulder shrug for the passing of my father and I find that incredible devoid of humanity.

Dear Laurie Once again, please accept our most sincere condolences for your father that passed away. Just after your reservation, you have requested to have a second room for "free in order for you and your brother to be able to process it your way". Unfortunately, the hotel was fully booked and we were unable to give you a second room. My colleague Marco D that has welcomed you and that has managed your Check-Out, has paid himself for your Breakfast. Our Croissants are sourced by Forno D'Asolo and, upon request, the Breakfast Staff can prepare a fresh squeezed orange juice. I am sorry to read that all this small gestures has not been appreciated. I sincerely hope to have an opportunity to better your experience with us whenever your travels bring you back to Venice. Yours sincerely, Irvin Surace Front Office Manager

Bad experience at Duado Palace for our two night stay. We booked a Delux room for two nights, only realised on our second night there they put us in a classic room. we only realised as we had family staying there too and on inspection of there room we realised ours was not the delux we booked. To date the hotel has refused to refund us the difference in price from a Delux room to the classic we stayed in. We also had a hotel staff member come into our room without knocking, waking us up while we were both having an afternoon sleep. Avoid this hotel
