Location is right next St Marks Square. Very easy to walk to in less than 5 minutes. Very close to lots of restaurants. Room was very outdated and the "air conditioning" didn't actually work. If you open the windows for air, be prepared to be eaten alive by mosquitos... Our view of the "canal" was not an actual view of...

Shower was way too small, I'm not a big person and I could hardly even bend over in it. Air conditioning not working, had to leave windows open which was noisy and yet still very hot!! Breakfast waitresses were wonderful, friendly and helpful. Other staff members seemed uninterested and not very helpful. I enquired about putting subtitles on our TV...

A nice place to stay for a couple of days, the location was ideal and we really much appreciated the breakfast Terrace and the room. You will like as well the garden near the canal for spritz time. We'll surely come back !

This is a clean, modern apartment with a great location. Beautiful wood floors, comfy beds, well-designed bathroom. Convenient to have a washing machine if needed. Lovely views from back windows, with birds chirping. Would stay here again, and would highly recommend it to others.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel staff were professional and friendly. Our room was very large with a view over the canal. The location of the hotel is central to everything. Be sure to enjoy some time in the secret garden watching the gondolas glide by!

Hopefully there are better rooms than the one I had! .I have been just for one night and I could not sleep because the room was too noisy and claustrofobic. And it was a 3 stars room not a 4 stars standard. The breakfast room is pretty nice and the breakfast ok.

This hotel has a great central location, conveniently located close to Piazza Sam Marco and only 10 min. away from the Rialto bridge. Furthermore it overlooks the canal passing under the bridge of sighs. The breakfast buffet is nice and the staff is very friendly. The rooms are generous and the bathrooms are well equipped.

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
