Having been spoilt at L'Accademia in Verona ( qv ) first impressions of this hotel were not good : an undistinguished entrance, cramped reception, badly-worn carpets and a ( typically ) small double room with little storage space.

Housekeeping could be better, but the refurb seems to have started with the long past-it carpet being replaced gradually.
- 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.
