Venezia is the impossible-to-describe-the-atmosphere most beautiful town on the globe. Differently we can so easily describe how pleasant a stay can be when the welcome is warm and the comfort is at the top. On the small "canale dei sospiri" from the windows you can almost see the famous bridge! Breakfast is served in a column dining room indoor terrace...

My husband and I arrived in Venice for a long weekend to celebrate my birthday. I cannot imagine a more suitable hotel. We had a boat transfer from the airport and had to walk to the hotel from the pier. It is literally 5 minutes away. The hotel staff were very polite and welcoming and everyone spoke English.

I was fortunate enough to have the top floor luxury room #51. Right there was our first disappointment as the view from the balcony/jacuzzi is absolutely rubbish. It is a disappointment to be so close to plaza San Marco yet with a view jammed with rooftops. On the other hand I regretted not bringing my drone along as it would...

Great location, just 2 minutes from St Mark's Square and a few hundred yards from the Bridge of Sighs. Lovely large room and helpful and pleasant staff. Very clean. Loved having a room with four windows so could have views in different directions.

The hotel is a 3-5min walk from St. Mark's Square, the location really helps you get around easily. Rooms are spacious and clean. Toilets are well maintained too. The breakfast area is really beautiful with a decent spread. The hotel has canal access which is really convenient for water taxis.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood 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
