The first impression on the way to the hotel is that it's a bit off the beaten track - but that's just Venice! In fact the Duodo Palace is no more than a stones throw from La Fenice (opera house) and only 10 minutes from St Marks square.
The hotel is small, but perfectly formed. The rooms are large and well specified. All Venice properties have their "fronts" to the canals, so it's a little difficult getting your bearings, but get a room at the front and your window overlooks a canal with gondolas and other water trades sailing past! The view isn't exceptional in the usual sense, but it's very atmospheric.
Breakfast is in one of two small rooms and is continental in orientation, but there is plenty of it and the service is wonderful.
The Duodo Palace is a lovely hotel and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 ... more less
