This hotel, a short stroll to St. Marks Square, is in a great location with restaurants, shopping, and transportation readily available. Also near a supermarket. Pricewise it was a fabulous deal but again we went off season. The concierge was very helpful and all the staff accommodating and gracious. The hotel provide a free day at Murano and the boat...

We were pleasantly surprised at the large room, as most European rooms tend to be quite small. There really wasn't a view, because the hotel sits off of one of the smaller canals. Breakfast was not the best and they only have tables for 2. Don't try and move 2 tables together, so you can sit as a group or...

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...

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
