Duodo Palace Hotel
Travel Blogs from Venice
For most of my adult life I'd dreamed of seeing Italy. Finally in 2010 I stepped into a sleek, timber water taxi with the man that I loved, and saw the Venetian Lagoon for the first time. Slowly the city came into view as we sped over the water, and I had tears in my eyes when we entered the Grand Canal. Nothing can prepare you for that first sight …
A day of train travel. Rapallo to Pisa; Pisa to Florence and Florence to Venice. All went well and very good value. Only cost us 85 Euro first class for both of us. Arrived just after 4.30pm and caught the water bus to San Marco landing; 7 Euro each. It looked fantastic going along the Grand Canal with boats, gondolas, people enjoying …

Loved this Hotel from the minute we stepped off the water taxi and through the front door! Great location, very venetian type decor, friendly service, breakfast and coffee were nice, and our room just above the canal had windows that opened to allow all the sights and sounds of the day in.

Historical Traveler Reviews Duodo Palace Hotel Venice
We had a great two night stay at Duodo Palace.
Just to mention this hotel where my boyfriend and I stayed (his was his first trip, and my third) was a total disappointment. It totally doesn't look anything like the photos on the website, and doesn't deserve number 8 ranking on the tripadvisor site. It has 0 charm.
Not a bad place to stay
This hotel was pretty nice. The rooms and bathrooms were exactly as they are pictured on the web. The breakfast was so/so, but you could order eggs and other things for a very expensive price. (example, hard boiled egg for 8 euro) The one thing I want to mention is that on Sunday, they tell you about free boat rides to Murano. We found out later that the hotel, the taxi rider and everyone involved gets a cut of what you buy at Murano, and you can buy the same stuff in Venice for much better prices. So, if you want to visit Murano, do so , but shop in Venice first to get a very good idea of price. My bet is you will buy in Venice instead of Murano.
This is a great little hotel within 5 minutes walk of St. Marks Square but still far enough away to enjoy plenty of peace and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the main thoroughfares. You can arrive at the hotel lobby by water taxi from the airport (well worth it!) or you can make your way by vaporetta to St. Marks Square and walk the last five minutes (not recommended with a lot of luggage though due to the number of small canal bridges you have to cross). Hotel room was very nice, if a little small, but clean with a lovely bathroom.
A very memorable trip
The hotel is very conveniently placed, I think in the best part of Venice. The staff are friendly and put themselves out to book the restaurants in the evening and give advice.
The rooms are large and very clean. Clean linens each day of our stay.
Fab coffee but could do better with choices for breakfast.
Do take the watertaxi directly to the hotel. Its the best way to enter Venice.
...made this customer very happy. The room we stayed in (#102) was beautifully decorated and very clean. The common areas were lovely and there was a computer station with free internet access. Breakfast was fine and the coffee superb. The staff was very helpful. The only drawback I ran into was a broken hairdryer. I didnt' discover that it was broken until I stepped out of the shower with very wet, extra thick long hair in desperate need of styling. I called the front desk and they sent someone up to tell me that it was indeed, broken. I proceeded to call and request that they get me a hairdryer or allow me to at least dry my hair in another room. After a few phonecalls, they let me into an empty room to dry my hair. However, it took me forever because the wattage on the dryer was unbelievably low. If you stay here and you require a hairdryer, I suggest you bring your own with an adaptor!
Had a wonderful stay at this location. Room was great, common areas delightful, location was 10 minutes walk from where-ever you want to go, and the staff was tremendous!.
Stay there again in a heartbeat!
Excellent, beautiful, wonderful
hotel. I just came from staying there in June 2004 and all I can say are wonderful things about the hotel. The rooms are comfortable, immaculately clean and very roomy. The bathrooms are very large with very good lighting. The hotel is in an excellent location, right in the heart of San Marco. The staff is very helpful and professional. Stay here with no reservations whatsoever, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
