This was the final hotel we stayed in for our final night in Italy before flying home. We had a junior suite and it certainly lived up to expectation. The room was lovely, being incredibly spacious, with comfortable beds and a great whirlpool bath, and a breathtaking view of the canal. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast...

This hotel was a gorgeous little find super close to San Marco square, with lots of restaurants on the doorstep you are spoiled for choice. Easy and practical base to explore this gorgeous city from by foot, boat or gondola even! The staff was friendly and accommodating.

Service was excellent, the rooms were well priced for their location, and very comfortable and BIG! We comfortably fit myself, my wife and my young son with ample space for all of us. The location, right behind Piazza San Marco, is hard to beat for ease of transport.

Stayed here in Oct. 2015. Very charming hotel, located off of St. Mark's Square. Arrived by boat to a charming patio area. Room was large and comfortable. Nicely appointed bathroom. Breakfast was exceed our expectation. We would definitely stay there again.

We visited 7th Feb for 4 days. The hotel was difficult to find and the reception was fairly small with shabby decor and threadbare carpets. Our room was spectacular and exactly what was shown in the pictures. It looked onto the canal and we could see the gondolas going by. Our room opened directly onto the dining area which was... More

Stayed here for 3 nights as a couples weekend in Mid January, we arrived late on the first evening and catching the public boat from the airport to the San Marco stop we found the hotel a 5 minute walk away. The hotel is very presentable and reception staff were helpful and took our suitcase up to the room. We... More

We had booked this hotel for a five night stay in Venice, the hotel is well situated, just two minutes walk from San Marco Basilica and five minutes from the San Marco ferry terminal. Our room was small, not at all like the ones shown in the promotions. Breakfast was the usual cold meats and cheese, buns, pastries, cereals etc.... More

Had a nice stay in this hotel. Paid €430 for three nights, which was good value for money. Great location, just a few minutes from San Marco square, surrounded by decently priced restaurants and bars. The staff is friendly and helpful (e.g. made restaurant bookings for us) and as others have pointed out, the breakfast is good, too. Our room... More

We stayed at the Dona Palace for a weekend in December 2015. As it was to celebrate my birthday we booked the Executive Suite. The hotel is really easy to find, down a path off St Marks Square, it's quiet but close enough for you to be in the square within 2 minutes. Check-in was quick and easy and the... More

after having staid in various hotels in Venice, I'm already used to some curiosities and the necessary lowered demands regarding the price and quality balance. Nevertheless Dona Palace somehow surprised me in a positive way for Venice. As it was Christmas, the room rates where lower than usual, so I decided to book a suite. The suite is really spacious,...

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A classy, elegant, luxury boutique hotel, the Donà Palace is a four star property overlooking the Rio at the Doge's Palace with its famous Bridge of Sighs, just a few steps from Europe's largest drawing room, Saint Mark's Square. The Hotel Donà Palace's exclusive setting in the historic heart of Venice is favoured for its priviledged position. Though close to so many important Venetian landmarks, the hotel's luxurious lodgings and accommodation have a refreshingly intimate quiet ambience, blending perfectly with the reflecting warmth of Venetian gothic design. ... more   less
