“Great location and price!”
Reviewed July 8, 2006

We stayed here as part of an 'extended honeymoon' as we got married just before Christmas 05. We found Venice to be everything and more that you could want as part of your honeymoon. The hotel itself lived up to the pictures on the website, the rooms were decorated to a high standard, were very clean and well stocked with many of the little extra's you tend only to get in hotels of higher ratings. Although the hotel was very quiet during our stay we did not get a room with a decorated ceiling or canal view, in fact we were next to the lift! We did find some of the staff to be a little unfriendly; we were horrified to hear the breakfast waiter telling a couple off for sitting at a table for four when there were only two of them! Although there was a breakfast menu on the table the waiter didn’t make any effort or indicate that you could actually have anything from it, we were left with the breakfast buffet which I felt was a little sparse. The bar had strange unexplained hours and when we tried to get two coffee's one afternoon we were charged 20 euros!

We traveled to Venice on the Orient Express and when we arrived were taken in a motorboat to the Duodo Palace, it looks exactly as it does on the website. We were greeted by a courteous, helpful receptionist, our baggage taken to our room (which was the pink one on the home page) The room was sumptuous and the painted ceiling was beautiful and, as others have said the bathroom huge! We found our way around fairly easily after the first night and found the central location a huge bonus. The breakfasts were always good and the service prompt and polite. There are several nearby restaurants that we enjoyed. We both totally recommend this hotel and Venice to anyone!!

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and were very impressed with every aspect of the hotel. Room overlooked the canal where singing gondoliers passed by frequently during the daytime. What a delight! Hotel staff were extremely helpful and courteous. Breakfast was in a very pleasant room next to the canal with a sufficient range of the usual fare in enough quantity to set you up for the day. The hotel was very clean and our room was tidied, cleaned and restocked by the time we got back after lunch. The hotel is a five minute walk fron St Mark's square and the Rialto Bridge, but manages to be extremely quiet of an evening.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The staff was very agreeable and accomdating, room was small, but the bathroom was large and modern, the view was a courtyard. The pictures of the bedroom (on the web site) was a bit misleading, ours was very plain. The breakfast was more than adequate, and the staff was informative. The resturant in Fenice Square (Antic Martini) was excellent. The location is near everything and yet off the beaten path. We had three wonderful days in Venice and will return again & again.

My husband and I stayed at the Duodo Palace for two nights in April. We found it to be a delightful hotel. On our first trip to Venice we stayed in a hotel on the Grand Canal, but the that one did not begin to compare with the lovely Duodo Palace. We actually preferred the location of the Duodo. It is close enough to the main sights without being too close. We loved the quiet Campo near the hotel. Not only is the Duodo a beautiful property, but the staff is eager to be helpful to the guests. We are looking forward to returning to Venice and the Duodo Palace.

Obviously the hotel had overbooked and when we arrived we were placed in what can only be described as a cell. The room didnt appear to be part of the hotel and was about 100 yards away. We entered the room direct from an alley way. We were kept awake all night with the noise of people walking down the alley and dragging cases along the cobbles. On the second night we had the pleasure of what appeared to be a business above our room dragging furniture around. Despite various complaints to the staff we didnt get anywhere. This was supposed to be a special weekend for my 35th birthday arranged by my wife who was extremely upset that she had booked a 4 star hotel especially for the occasion and had researched the hotel following the excellent reviews on websites such as trip advisor. How wrong could you be. As the hotel was mainly full of older couples we can only assume that they had decided to keep the younger guests outside. Needless to say we do not recommend the hotel.
