We arrived early with no problem checking in. The shower head broke but was fixed immediately. Reception also arranged a fantastic boat trip round Venice. The room was amazing with high ceiling and rustic decor. (And very good air conditioning). The 2 nights we stayed were fabulous and could not fault the room, the location and the staff. Wonderful!

We stayed 5 nights and were very happy indeed with our choice. The location is perfect. Very close to St Marks square and all the main attractions. We managed to find it easily from the waterbus dock, following directions we were given.
Had a large room on the 4th floor with rooftop views - still really pretty. The staff couldn't have been better, always pleasant and cheerful. Good breakfast.

This hotel is very close to st Marc's square, is very quiet and has a good continental breakfast available in the morning. We would recommend getting a water taxi for the airport direct to the hotel it's worth it so as to not get lost finding in foot. Staff were very good and were happy to re confirm bookings for us for water taxis etc. our room was very small but we were ok with this.

Booked this hotel for a 3 night stay in June with my wife, in advance of our 30th wedding anniversary, based on the Trip Advisor reviews . Proved overall to be an excellent choice in a very good central location 5 minutes walk from San Marco and just around the corner from the Theater La Fenice ( once you have found it that is ( see other reviews on difficulties in locating it if you choose not to take a water taxi direct to the hotel). We took the ferry from the airport and then walked with the luggage from the San Marco stop, as many others do , though not terribly enjoyable with temperatures scorching in the mid -80s ) . Nobody seemed to know where the hotel was, though had we realised at the time we would have just asked for directions to the theatre. !! The hotel staff were very courteous , helpful and accommodating and gave us a free upgrade to a large very pleasant room on the first floor overlooking the canal . The bathroom was generally of a high standard though the shower was somewhat of a disappointment . The breakfasts in the very small restaurant rooms were were of a good standard including fresh fruit , croissants , cheese , meats etc. though eggs were extra and expensive but then so is the rest of Venice . The only thing lacking in the hotel is somewhere to sit outside just to relax .

Cant really recommend any restaurants to eat in the San Marco and Accademia areas because although the food is good as it generally is in Italy, I thought the restaurants which we ate in were all expensive and over-priced !!

Overall the Duodo Palace represents a good choice for a base for a short stay in a wonderful city , the highlights of which for us were the Grand Canal and the Doges Palace and just walking around .........despite the heat

Dear Guest,

thank you very much, your review is extremely pleasant to read.
Like you said, we are close to the Opera House (teatro la Fenice) so, if you need to reach us, just follow the directions to get there from San Marco or Rialto.
We’re happy to know that you’ve appreciated our breakfast, staff members and the room we gave you.

We hope to see you again at Duodo Palace Hotel for a new taste of a wonderful city like Venice.

Best Regards,

The hotel is tucked away down an alley, on a quiet water-way and a spit away from the Fenice Theater. A great location, very central and easy to get to. Water taxis can deliver you directly to and pick you up from the hotel's water entrance. The hotel is probably the most peaceful I have ever stayed in, at night it was completely silent, no noise from the streets or other rooms, we slept like babies.

The bedding was a little hard and the shower not the finest, but the bedroom and bathroom were large and well furnished. The bedroom had a tall ceiling and was decorated in an old Venetian style, very atmospheric!

Breakfast was buffet style and very pleasant. The hotel staff were always accommodating and very friendly, giving advice, looking after our luggage and ordering a water taxi for us.

Highly recommended! Would stay here again.
