Nice hotel with nice rooms ok bath room and helpfull staf. This hotel is of the canal by 100m so there is no view from the room. About 10-15min walk from train station. Water taxi was asking 50€ to go to the hotel that would be less than a 5min drive. Brekfast was inkluded but noting spesial coffee was good. There is a bakery around the corner that have some good sandwich and pizza. There are some good resturants close to the hotel. Payed 60€ for a water taxi from the hotel to San Marco nice trip trough the canals.

My husband and I stayed in the Red Room for our honeymoon. Although it was a bit small, the decor was opulent and made us feel as if we were in a Venetian Palace. The hotel is very close to a Vaporetto stop with a few nice local restaurants near by but otherwise withdrawn from the busier parts of the city. The staff was helpful and the breakfast service was very nice.

Unfortunately we couldnt get the red room which we actually booked but it was a pretty cute rooftop room, for a couple really worth to try this lovely atmosphere. Also for the price its absolutely worth it and the area where the hotel is located in is just gorgeous.

So far the best hotel we stayed in Italy. Located next to San Stae vaporetto (river bus) stop, two stops from Ferrovia. Quiet neighbourhood; few nice restaurants around as well as beautiful artisan shops where we got out exquisite Pierrot mask from guy named Hama, and elegant jewellery. The area isn’t much touristy either. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly with getting around, booking the concert tickets and even allowing few nice extras: particularly can mention Phillip and Costa. Free breakfast was included, with fresh juices and plenty of varieties. TV channels included BBC and CNN. Room was a bit small, but comfortable with the mini-bar and safe. Extra pillows were much appreciated as well as properly functioning air conditioner. The room being soundproofed, there was no street noise at late hours. Hotel is 100 m close to the Grand Canal with many nooks and crannies for the romantic evening /night stroll. No complaints whatsoever.

If you want to experience old Venice charm with modern hospitality then this is the hotel for you. When our family of 4 checked in we were upgraded to a two room suite. It was beautifully decorated in the old Venetian style, it immediately took you back in time. It was clean, had good beds, had more than enough room for all four of us and the adults even got a separating door. The hotel is situated in a quiet part of the city but yet close enough to all the major attractions. The neighbourhood has a grocery store, several restaurants, a gondola ride station and two gelato stores. The hotel serves breakfast in the morning. Although its not like our breakfasts back in North America it has plenty of options to get you going on your day and everything it serves is delicious and fresh. Finally, what sets this hotel apart from most that we have been to is the staff. They were all friendly, helpful, informative and patient to listen to our many questions. I would not have a second thought in staying at the Al Duca again and I truly hope to see it again.

We travelled all over Italy and this was our favorite hotel. The front desk staff is the best. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready but they found a room that was ready and allowed us into our room. They provided directions and offered to make reservations at their favorite places. The breakfast was delicious and fresh. We needed a private water taxi at 4:00 am. They not only made the arrangements for the taxi to pick us up, they walked us to the docks and made sure that we were taken care of. The rooms were large, clean and quiet. The hotel is off the beaten path from the touristy noise and crowds which was so nice for relaxation.

Overall a nice hotel. The staff was friendly & helpful and the location was great. We were a family of 4 and the red room was a hoot. The breakfast was not terrific but not bad. About middle of the road from the other hotels we stayed in on our trip. It was a short walk to a charming square with a couple of good restaurants and later on someone was playing music, people were dancing & kids were running around. It was fun! I'd definitely recommend the hotel and return.

I never usually bother to write reviews, but this place impressed me that much I had to make an exception. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. I booked a superior room and made a request for a red one, with a courtyard view on either the first or second floor, as I was planning a very special romantic holiday, and that is exactly what I got. When we first arrived we was greeted by Michelle, who was super friendly and provided one of the best customer service experiences I have ever received. Very friendly, helpful and informative and as we saw her everyday for the week we stayed I can assure you she is like this 100% of the time. Although I do need to say that indeed every member of staff was very nice, friendly and polite all of the time, and I do hope the management will read this, but just incase I plan to email to praise staff and the exceptional customer service we received from Michelle. Hotel is in a quiet location, which for me is a bonus, but it is easy to get to. We had no probs getting waterbus to San stae and it's only down street and around the corner. Venice isn't a massive city to walk round and you can easily reach St Mark's square in 20 mins at nice easy strolling pace. But if you are not keen on walking you can get a waterbus from the San stae stop to almost anywhere. We found the area peaceful, and charming, but on the other hand every area of Venice is lovely, there are no bad areas just busier ones and I like being away from the crowds and tourists traps. The breakfast was nice with excellent proper coffee, but do note there isn't a kettle in room or instant coffee. Didn't bother me much, just put it down to the Italians love of great coffee and they probably wouldn't entertain the cheap instant crap. Air conditioning in the room was really good and efficient and the only thing I could say wasn't quite up to scratch was the hairdryer which had little power to it. If I'd had mentioned that to staff I am sure they would of most likely sorted me a better one, but again I didn't really care, my hair dries quickly enough outside when it's as warm as it is in Venice in summer. So it's with a heavy heart and a tear in my eye I had to check out of Al duca this morning and leave Venice behind, the city that stole my heart, hopefully one day I will return and I needn't bother looking for accommodation, Al duca Di Venezia is where I'd stay. Grazie, Ciao for now!

The hotel is located about 10 min walk from Venezia St Lucia train station. When we arrived, we were put in the red room which is what we reserved. For a family of 4, this room was very small but nice. I asked for an upgrade and they upgraded us to the suite Room 204 and that room was amazing. There are no good views from the hotel to the canals but that's ok as we walked around. Service was EXCELLENT. Every time I needed something, they were very courteous and fast in helping. Breakfast is typical italian with no hot breakfast. All pastries, fruit, meats and hard boiled eggs. Coffee is made to order and the lady (forgot her name) was so awesome. Location: 10 min walk to Rialto bridge and 20 min to St Marks square. Personally, i loved the location as it was a quiet area without too many tourists. Walking in Venice was so pleasant anyway that we didn't mind the walk.

Everything positive that has been written about this hotel is true. The staff is amazing - we were upgraded to a better room when we got there. We loved the location - it's quiet but a minute away there is a bustling square (small) with 7 different restaurants on the square and in the area, a supermarket, a fantastic conditoria /cafe (Majer - it's a chain so look for it in other places) and an artisan gelato store (at super cheap prices). Less than 10 minutes walk to the vaporetto stop. The hotel is small (15 rooms besides several self catering apartments) and the breakfast is continental with a good selection (but no hot dishes if that's important to you - it isn't to us.) Excellent coffee is made to your order. The Wifi in our room didn't work well - but we were right next to the lobby where it did. We discussed the problem with reception. They are in the process of putting individual internet spots in all the rooms. The thick walls are a problem and in addition, the Internet infrastructure in the neighborhood is weak. But this shouldn't be a reason to pass up this hotel (unless you're there on business). If it's important - there is a lift but it doesn't reach the upper floor - there are stairs. If that's a problem, you should let the hotel know in advance.
