Great staff, beautiful building, good accommodations and perfectly located. It's not a modern place, but this is what you expect when stay in the islands. Stay in Piazza di San Marco it's what you need to know Venice easily. Good breakfast. Great Giardino!

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... More

This hotel was a gorgeous little find super close to San Marco square, with lots of restaurants on the doorstep you are spoiled for choice. Easy and practical base to explore this gorgeous city from by foot, boat or gondola even! The staff was friendly and accommodating.

Service was excellent, the rooms were well priced for their location, and very comfortable and BIG! We comfortably fit myself, my wife and my young son with ample space for all of us. The location, right behind Piazza San Marco, is hard to beat for ease of transport.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A classy, elegant, luxury boutique hotel, the Donà Palace is a four star property overlooking the Rio at the Doge's Palace with its famous Bridge of Sighs, just a few steps from Europe's largest drawing room, Saint Mark's Square. The Hotel Donà Palace's exclusive setting in the historic heart of Venice is favoured for its priviledged position. Though close to so many important Venetian landmarks, the hotel's luxurious lodgings and accommodation have a refreshingly intimate quiet ambience, blending perfectly with the reflecting warmth of Venetian gothic design. ... more   less
