Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Dona Palace Venice
Not cheap, but worth every penny...
Hotel Dona Palace promised us a great room and view and they delivered. This hotel is in a great location and offers a view of the Bridge of Sighs from certain rooms. The amenities are top of the line and the staff was super friendly. The hotel also offers a 20% discount at 4 different resturaunts, which saved us 20 or more euros at meal time. I would only reccommend one of the resturaunts, however : Grotta Pizza (outside take a right and it's in front of you on the left). The have more than just pizza and was the only resturaunt that had locals eating inside, which is a good sign. The food was good at Grotta - the other three were, in my opinion, terrible and tourist traps.
You won't be disappointed if you stay at Hotel Dona. We stayed in the jr suite and felt we got what we paid for (FOR VENICE).
Wonderful hotel- friendly people, perfect location, great breakfast. The room was beautiful, spacious, and very clean with modern ammenities (flast screen TV, etc). I would highly recomend this hotel.
Three stars but large rooms
A bit difficult to find through the madness of the piazza San Marco. If you have to stay in the area and are lookiong for 3 star accommodations, this is a great place.
the concierge was very helpful with everything. If you are taking a private water taxi from the train station, please try to arrange with the hotel. The guys on the waterfront will rip you off and not drop you off at the hotel's private landing and instead take you to the Piazza San Marco where you will encounter hordes of people that you cannot get by with your luggage.
Do not eat at the restaurants near the hotel or those recommended by the hotel we paid $70 for 3 plates of mediocre spaghetti with very poor service. I highly recommend La casina for dinner at the Westin Hotel. Wonderful service, spectacular food and great views...magical.
Perfect for a couple nights
We wouldn't have found this hotel very easily if we hadn't spotted the sign sticking out perpendicular to the building. It's down a little street just off St Marks Square, so it is as central as you can be in Venice. Our room was spacious, with marvellous air-con and we had a balcony over looking the gondolas. The main showerhead in the bathroom didn't have any water pressure so we used the the shower attached to the bath taps. Breakfast is served in a Beautiful Room - but I must say I was really put off when I saw flies crawling all over the fruit (why wasn't it covered?) Also another thing that put me off was we had paid for Room incl Breakfast and on the tables there were cards showing the charge for the juices and cooked breakfasts. €4 for an orange juice! To end on a positive note, they were friendly and the place was convenient, clean and a bit of a treat for our one night in Venice.
This hotel is a real gem. The room and the bathroom was spacious and very stylish. Breakfast was excellent (worth 20 euro ea.) and the location was as good as it gets. Staff were friendly and helpful. I will stay here for sure next time around.
Great place, great value
Beautiful large quiet room with high-speed Internet access. Great breakfast included in the reasonable rate. VERY close to everything. Wonderful staff. We'd go back again anytime.

Things got a little rocky later in the evening as we had to chase the storm and then go through it for our next destination, but by midnight we were on calmer waters once again.

Another point of interest is the coloured houses. The colour of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development. It someone wants to paint their home, they send a request to the government, who will respond by making notice of the certain colours permitted for that lot!

... walk around Venice and get lost so we spent most of the morning there. We stopped for a gelato seeing it was quite warm, and it was so delicious we almost went back for seconds. We eventually made our way back to the Rialto bridge and got lost trying to find our way back to the ferry terminal but made it to St Marks Square again for the last time in this trip, and then caught the ferry back to Lido. We had a few hours to rest, and then got changed to go out and meet Carly ...
