Recent guest reviews

Nice clean comfortable hotel Has water door access which we weren't aware of so had to push our bags across the very crowded square Would advise to ask taxi to take you to hotel door Our transfer was organised by travel agent so we were unaware Short walk to San Marco square where it is easy to find transport around and gondolas Lots of eating places and market stalls close by

2 mins walk from St Marks Square (Piazza San Marco) lovely wee beer garden on the canal to enjoy a relaxing drink and watch the gondolas go by also hundreds of bars and restaurants right outside the front door.

Dona Palace was an excellent choice for us: the quality of the room exceeded our expectation, service was very friendly and competent and breakfast was perfect. It was a pleasure staying at the Dona Palace

Dona Palace is very central you can reach the main points of interest by foot. Everybody was very friendly and the room was clean and big. The only thing I didn't like was that the breakfast could be more diverse for example no boiled eggs.

We stayed at the Dona Palace pre cruise from Friday Aug 4-Sunday Aug 6. I can't say enough good things about this quaint little hotel!! We arrived early coming from Toronto....they had our rooms ready 10 min after we arrived! We were in rooms 10 and 11 on the second floor. The rooms were perfect...nice and cool and comfortable! Every single person that worked there were friendly and helpful! Free breakfast in the morning too. We loved the little outdoor terrace that was along the canal! We sat there every chance we could watching the gondolas go by! Drink service was there on the terrace too...stay here. U won't be sorry! Oh yeah...great location and price!!!

Very close to Saint Marcus square. Great breakfast and very helpfull staff. Large and comfortable room and bathroom. Nice bar, good drinks and excellent view of Venice channel and gondoliers. Reception staff always helpfull.

Great Location, staff and service. Close to San marco square, shops and restaurants. The room is really big and breakfast very good. From our small terrace, we may take vedio that Gondola sails under Sighs Bridge.

Wonderful small hotel in a great location. Staff were all terrific and helpful. Cleanliness and spaciousness of room was surprising based on previous stays at nearby hotels. Breakfast was excellent. Highly recommend. We will stay there again if given the chance.

The hotel is convenient located, very close of San Mark's Square and main atractions. The staff is very friendly, I like the suggestions on restaurants to visit which I found very useful. Rooms are a bit smal but enough for a short trip.

We got upgraded to a junior suite and we were offered a complementary drink and a free trip to see a glass factory that we did not end up going as we only had one night in Venice. Very clean and best location right by San Marco square. The only odd thing was that you must give in your key as you depart each time and retrieve it upon return I guess cause it is a large key and to avoid losing it ? Safe in room and really nice bathroom. Although I prefer no carpet and was not available room without carpet it the red carpet in our room looked very clean and was well maintain in the corridor also. The breakfast was very nice and staff was very friendly and allowed me to bring croissant to my teenage daughter that did not get up in time for breakfast.
