True romantic getaway; about 15 minute walk from the train station; we loved the location since it put you in a less touristy area of Venezia. Just a couple streets from cafes and quaint little shops; we loved the neighborhood feel in the area; it's a good half an hour walk to the Rialto; definitely travel by water to San Marco if you want to save your energy for the activies in that area. We highly recommend the water taxi tour that was arranged by the hotel staff; wonderful experience compared to the touristy vaporettos and gondolas; we went to Venice prepared to have it be our least favorite stop (we did Florence, Venice & Rome) and fell in love with the place - this in part due to where we stayed and what we experienced at Hotel Al Duca di Venezia and the local "neighborhood"....room was lovely (the red room), clean, comfy bed, nice bathroom; breakfast was fine; would have appreciated a little more fresh fruit and possibly more pastries choice but let's face it with the other dining you'll be doing and gelato it isn't necessary for breakfast to be a blockbuster. Staff was so attentive. Would go back in a heartbeat!
