Hotel Dona Palace

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Fantastic little hotel just 150m from Piazza San Marco with it's own private courtyard leading to the canal. A brilliant central location, lots of inexpensive eateries nearby and tea/coffee making facilities in the room as well as a substantial free buffet breakfast means you save Euros on transport and food. OK the rooms are a little dated but still charming and king sized bed was comfortable, spa bath superb! One of Venice's treasures!

Very friendly reception staff. Room okay. Breakfast was okay. Close to main attractions. Get ready to get lost in Venice when trying to find the hotel. Google maps not reliable at all!! No coffee in room..

Ideal hotel for central location, two minutes from Saint Marks Square. Nice rooms, excellent breakfast room and breakfast, friendly staff. Would not hesitate to go to Dona Palace again. Water taxi can pick up and drop off at hotel unless there is a high tide

the room is wonderful huge and very confortable big space and a romantic view from the window (ponti bridge) and quite huge sailing and big space j enjoy and we ll return soon as we can closed to San Marco to the center a fantastic journey

Hotel was located perfectly in the heart of San Marco. Literally near everything! Hotel staff were lovely and very welcoming, room was huge (junior comfort suite) and had a spa bath, shower and separate toilet! Highly recommend!

As soon as we walked into reception we knew we had chosen the right hotel . Great position close to the sites but quiet, very clean tidy , lovely good size room, comfortable bed, superb breakfast, beautiful courtyard with access to the canal . We were very happy here and would visit again .

Great location right at the heart of Venice. Few minutes walk to St Mark’s Square and footbridge beside hotel across to other central areas of the city. Has private dock as canal runs straight past so was able to get private water taxi straight from airport to hotel which was brilliant as was travelling on my own and arrived very late in the evening. Lovely breakfast and staff so lovely and friendly. Only thing was no restaurant or food room service but aside from that, fantastic value and lovely hotel.

This was my second visit to this hotel, which is in a primary position within two minutes walk of St Mark's Square. The bedroom and bathroom were kept in immaculate order thought my visit, the breakfast selection and dining room were very good, and I found all the staff to be polite and helpful. I organised my visit off season in order to make it more financially viable and avoid the huge crowds that flock to Venice during the 'High Season'. This worked very well for me as I suspect that I would not be able to stay in such a convenient hotel at other times of the year. However, I hope to return Venice in the near future and hopefully to this hotel.

Excellent location, quiet yet close to San Marco and an easy walk to Rialto Bridge. Very helpful staff. Lovely clean room. Good breakfast included in rate with excellent coffee. This hotel is great value for money!

We've just returned from six weeks of travel, and this was the best accommodation of the holiday. The location was excellent - close to everything, but far enough away to not be crowded or noisy. Our room was huge and it overlooked a canal, which meant that until the evening, we could watch the gondolas go by and listen to the music. The staff were helpful and friendly, even when we had to check out at 3.30am! We will definitely stay here again next time we're in Venice.
