What can I say other than I can not fault this hotel. It is down a small alley, but you can't criticise an establishment for Venice being a bit of a maze in places. From the minute we checked in all the staff were brilliant and couldn't be friendlier or do more for you (free arrival drink, bags taken to...

Very nicely furnished rooms but very poor lighting making reading difficult. Central location but difficult to find. Good breakfasts with large selection but rooms very small and lots of congestion. Great value for Venice. Staff very keen to tell us the checkout time even though we never asked for it.

This hotel is just faultless! On arrival to the hotel, my partner and I were greeted by extremely friendly and polite staff who booked us in fast and efficiently. Then a member of the concierge took our bags up to our room with turned out to be the wrong room. HOWEVER, this was no accident. I questioned this at the...

This hotel is an absolute Gem. It was located 5 minutes from St Marko square. It is located on one of the beautiful Venetian canals and beside everything. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel, the staff, location and the beautiful surroundings made for an excellent three night break. The staff are very helpful, giving directions, recommendations and all...

We booked a tour to Italy via Make my trip and our last stop of the 14 day trip was Venice. We had a tough time reaching our hotel after being dropped by the water taxi at San Marco. We had a baby in a stroller and 2 suitcases to carry and 3 bridges to cross. Just as we reached...

My wife and I visited Venice in October and stayed here. It was by far the most expensive hotel on our trip. We expected commensurate accommodations. Our experience was by far the worst of our 18 day trip to Italy. When we got to the room, it was hot (79F), no AC. The staff told us to open our windows....

We booked a birthday trip for my partner's sisters birthday, so there were three of us sharing a room. The hotel were very accommodating and let us have an extra bed in the room.

We were upgraded to a water view room which was lovely, nice size, good air-con, nice bathroom, very clean. Painted ceilings in a venetian style so it didn't feel like a generic hotel. It was absolutely great. The breakfast was amazing for Venice standards. Freshly bakes croissants and pastries, continental meats and bread. Prosecco if wanted, cappuccino etc all included...

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)
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
