"Wonderful hotel in prime location - lovely staff & fantastic rooms"
I recently stayed at Hotel Dona Palace by myself for one night during October. The hotel is in a fantastic location: tucked away down a little street, you can find yourself in the bustle of San Marco in moments. The hotel itself is small but a true gem. They have their own private peaceful courtyard which overlooks the canal so you can watch the gondolas go by and the dining room is a very impressive sight to see. The rooms are equally impressive. I stayed in Room 14 which is one of their luxury suites with a gorgeous canal view. It truly was one of the most spacious rooms I've ever been in! Impeccably clean and designed in true Venetian style, it had marble bathrooms and an extra sitting room which alone made it feel like my own private palace quarters! Service at the hotel is excellent too. Staff are very friendly and helpful which made things a lot easier for someone travelling alone. Finally, it should be said that I've visited Venice before and this was by far my favourite of hotels to stay in. You can end up paying an awful lot for hotels in Venice and not get a lot back in return, but at Hotel Dona Palace, it's worth every reasonable penny you pay. Great hotel, fantastic location. I would certainly book again.
"Charming hotel in great location"
Stayed here for a long weekend in October and have to say we were delighted with the service from the start. They sorted out and arranged our transportation from the airport in Venice direct to the hotel, thank goodness we paid the extra for them to do this as traipsing around venice with our suitcase trying to find the hotel would have been stressful. The reception staff (Rafaell especially) were extremely helpful, informative and very friendly. The hotel is in a perfect location to all the main attractions in Venice The Classic double room is small but big enough for all that it is needed for sleeping etc. We will be back to Venice one day soon and we will definitely be staying here again.
"'Welcome and enjoy'"
The hotel is conveniently located just of the St. Marco Plaza, within easy walking distance of all major attractions. We understand the hotel had just re-opened after a change in ownership. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful arranging bookings and transport at any time of day or night. The room we had was spacious and well maintained and had a nice view of one of the smaller canals. Both hotel and staff radiated welcome.
"3 nights at the heart of Venice"
We stayed at the Dona Palace for 3 nights in late Sept 2016 and it was a very pleasant experience. The location could not be better, less than a 100 m from San Marco Plaza and Basilica, which gave us the opportunity to be there any time of the day or the night we wanted as well as easy access to transportation by Vaporetto or water taxi. It was also a reasonably quiet place. The staff was extremely helpful monitoring our lost luggage (a "gift" from the usually incompetent and arrogant Alitalia). The Hotel had great Breakfast and, as a surprise, a common garden at the back yard leading to one of the secondary water canals. Great Place for a Coffee and watch the gondolas passing by. Would not think twice in recommending it or going back next time in Venetto!
"Crown jewel of our holiday to Italy"
This was the final hotel we stayed in for our final night in Italy before flying home. We had a junior suite and it certainly lived up to expectation. The room was lovely, being incredibly spacious, with comfortable beds and a great whirlpool bath, and a breathtaking view of the canal. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was very nice. They even served Prosecco which was quite the novelty for a Brit. Their terrace was also lovely, although it's a shame their bar was closed during our visit, although they were happy to provide drinks and snacks regardless. Also a great location, mere minutes from St. Marc's square. Undoubtedly a hotel I intend to visit again.
