Domina Home Giudecca, situated on the island of the same name, was made famous over the years by the local nobility and aristocracy who transformed it into a haunt and refuge for intellectuals and artists. Hospitable and silent rooms, inviting with their unmistakable style and impeccable service: experiencing Venice at Domina Home Giudecca really means stepping back into the past to be welcomed with all the care and pampering that elsewhere have long been sacrificed on the altar of mass tourism. Venice is crowded and packed with tourists, wrote a couple of British travellers who stayed here. If you really long for a romantic Venetian holiday, Domina Home is the ideal place. It feels like home. That's right: it is a home in Venice. A dream but also a reality that can be achieved today. A tax has been imposed by the city for stays beginning 1 October 2012, and will be collected directly at the property. The tax ranges from EUR 1 to EUR 5 per person, per night. The amount has been determined by the local administration, depends on the star rating of hotel and the season of travel. This tax does not apply from the 6th consecutive night of stay onwards, to residents of Venice City and children under 10 years of age. Please note that further exemptions may apply. For additional details on this tax please check with the hotel property at check-in.

Perfect solution to a hot summer

If you a obliged to take a holiday at the peak of the busy hot season then the Domina Giudecca Hotel is a great location. Just a short water bus ride away from the mass of tourists in San Marco. In less than 5 or 10 minutes you are on a tranquil island with room to relax and savour the whole backdrop of beautiful Venice. You can dip in and out and see what you want when you want and not be pushed along with the crowds. The hotel is small and although not spectacular from the outside, like many Italian buildings it is tastefully furnished inside with a combination of cool marble modern style blended with wonderful stone pillars and wooden ceiling beams throughout. The conservatory style breakfast area was delightfully unique but a more varied selection of food would have been prefered with a tastier Italian bread rather than rolls. Good coffee machine. It is a shame that there is no outside seating area but the hotel is situated in a small quiet square with benches among the trees. Our stay was enhanced by the warm welcome of Andrea (Boccelli) in reception who, in addition to being an expert on 1970's rock bands was amusing and helpful with all you need to know about Venice. For a 6 day stay the best deal we made was to purchase a 7 day waterbus ticket at 58euros which also included the road bus to and from the airport. It was extremely easy to prebook this on the internet with Hellovenezia and collect the ticket from a machine at the airport.. We more than covered our cost by using it not only for travel around Venice but also for trips out to Morano and Burano which is a must if you have the time. Another 'must visit' is to the Teatro San Gallo which is currently showing a film and a live presentation of the history of Venice. Brilliant. Our previous stay in Venice was in the bitter cold of January when we stayed in another exquisit hotel converted from a former monastery close to the station. We were able to visit all the main attractions without the long queues and were warmed with drinks of hot mulled wine whenever the delicious smell wafted along the streets . Both hotels have been perfect choices for the different times of the year and would be recommended again and again.

On the Fondamente Nove side of the island try out the Algiubagio Restaurant for 5 star cuisine away from the regular pizzarias and spaghetti menus. A bit pricier but worth it.

A little gem

Unprepossessing from the outside, this lovely hotel is tucked away down a tiny alley, 3 - 4 minutes walk from the waterbus stop that takes you to St. Mark's Square (a 10 minute trip). It is beside one of the canals in Guidecca (pronounced Gweedecca apparently!), right by a simple bridge which gives it added charm. Once inside the hotel is clean and modern with a small but cheery breakfast room. No hot food for breakfast but adequate cereals, fruit, cold meats, cheese, yogurts, bread and pastries. Rooms were all you needed for a few nights stay though maybe a little short on space for a longer stay. Our main grumble was that the bar was rather small - no problem if you are a small party as it easily seats 8 to 10 but we were a large party and it was a slight inconvenience. The staff more than compensated for this - friendly and helpful at all times of the day and night. They booked us a meal for twenty at a nice restaurant on the island and helped with all sorts of other queries. A ten minute walk from the hotel will take you to the Hilton Skyline bar, a great place for cocktails (and free nibbles) while you look out over Venice and watch the cruise ships go by!

A little out of the way, but great stay

The shower was a bit small and the bed a bit hard. Also, you need to take the vaparetto in to Venice proper. Other than those few things, it was a great stay. The distance means that the hotel is quiet. Breakfast is small, but good. The staff was nice and helpful and the room was nice and clean. If I were to go back to Venice I would stay here again!

Long weekend easter 2013

We stayed 3 nights over Easter 2013. We chose this hotel as we had struggled to find anywhere for value on Venice island - best thing that happened to us!! The hotel is a 5 minute ride on the waterbus from St Marks square so no issue, even easy to get back at 3 in the morning!! We actually preffered being here to the thought of been constantly in the hustle & bustle. Was ideal to just get away to the peace and quiet after the day sightseeing. You really felt welcome by true Venice residents on Guiddecca. The hotel staff could not have been friendlier. Hotel was lovely and clean and well decorated. Room was in a good clean condition and more than comfortable enough. I wouldnt hesitate staying here again. Great deal on mini bar - take all contents for €15!! Bar drinks were cheap anyway. Lovely local bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk - you really felt you were away from the tourist traps on main land venice. Overall a superb hotel which helped make our trip all the more enjoyable.

Local bars are all very welcoming - way more enjoyable than the main Venice Island. Small family restaurant at Redentorre vaporetta stop was superb - only one stop down from hotel or 5 minute walk!! Great family feel, superb value, good food!!

Hidden Gem!

Actually booked this reading another review on this site...a little difficult to find at first but well worth it. Away from all the tourists on the main island, lovely room, good continental breakfast and very helpful staff. A couple of very good restaurants within a 5 minute walk and a lovely cafe for an early morning coffee before joining the crowds. Get off at Palanca water bus stop and its a 3 minute walk to the hotel. The restaurant behind the boat yard is wonderful and it's where the locals eat too!

Avoid eating and shopping in the main San Marco area. A 5-10 minute walk away from here and you'll find more resonable prices and cheaper shopping!...Good walking footwear essential!

Short break

Fantastic staff, beautiful hotel, very clean, good breakfast. Only two points to note, the walls were very thin and the hotel at first was a little difficult to find, a sign on the alley located near the hotel would of been very useful. All in all, very friendly useful staff, would definitely visit again

All was not well

Booked a room at this hotel based on other reviews and its rating. - However was in for a rude shock when I was informed that the air con had broken and cannot be fixed. Had to spend a night in a hot (36C) and humid Venice. So what's the compensation, an open bar and a one day breakfast. I would have definitely traded that for a table fan. But alas they only had one table fan at the reception which I thought was a lie cause the fan model changed in the next hour. Also apparently we got one of the "cool" rooms which was hotter than a furnace. - Wifi does not work in your room, you have to sit in the lobby. - The only English channel was the English MTV music which would have been sufficient. But did that work; No Sir! It kept getting into a "No Signal" mode. - Don't be fooled by the pictures that you get a canal view. We got a brick wall view. Conclusion: The hotel almost ruined our stay in Venice, spend some more money and get a better one.

Try to avoid eating on the main island i.e. the one with St Marks Square. Guidecca have a few good restaurants which are much cheaper than the mainland; and give a great view of the mainland.
