Wow what a hotel. I have wanted to stay here for years and I wasn't disappointed. Beautiful public areas. We stayed in one of the suites which was fantastic. Spotlessly clean, amazingly comfortable bed and gorgeous furnishing. The hotel is in a prime location overlooking the lagoon making it very easy to access all the best Venice has to offer. Breakfast on the terrace is one not to be forgotten (with the exception of the pigeons who are a real pain trying to steal food) there is a very good selection of cooked and cold food available. Something for everyone. The staff were very attentive. I look forward to returning soon
"Breakfast on the rooftop"
The best thing at the hotel is the breakfast on the rooftop, food was great and the view was beautiful. Reception area looks pretty cool too. Location was perfect for our first time in Venice. We could access everything we needed and the important attractions were walking distance. The rooms are very traditional in style but we had a nice big dressing room and bathroom which was great and spacious.
"Great place but ...."
Our luxury room had a fantastic view of the lagoon; it was very quiet too, despite crowds below and the boats arriving outside; the hotel itself is glorious in the interior parts; service was generally of a high standard, always pleasant and attentive; breakfast was excellent (though see another review of the disappointing dining one evening); and so we had a great stay. But for the price (and OK, Venice is expensive anyway) I'd have expected a better fitted room and certainly a better bathroom - no walk-in shower, slippery bathtub, only OK toiletries. Would we go back' Probably yes, and if you feel like splashing out on a kind of landmark place, it's a good option.
"Enjoyed my time here"
My partner surprised me with booking this hotel in Venice. Room given to us was facing the churches and canals. It was beautiful. Staffs were attentive. Breakfast was a spread. Housekeeping was excellent. Room was very clean. Do take time to explore around. The hotel feels like a museum. Afterall, it was owned by a noble family in the past. Location was superb! It was a walking distance to the main attractions. We arrived via a water taxi. The water taxi stopped us at it's entrance. Went for dinner at it's restaurant one night and the food was delicious. Enjoyed my time there. Will come back if I have the chance.
"Yes it is special but..."
Of course the Danieli is special but it needs more effort to make it outstanding. When you are paying over €600 per night you expect the basin in the quite small bathroom to hold WATER and when it does not and you tell Housekeeping you expect it to be fixed. It was not. When you are spending €95 on a main dish you expect the stones to cook the beef to be HOT, they were not. Excellent location, great breakfast and good front desk service but for the price not best value.
