“Amazing honeymoon!”
Reviewed 5 December 2011

My wife and I came here on our honeymoon.... We loved the room and the hotel. The staff was great. The hotel was located in a very convenient location to all of the sites.

The breakfast was great. Plenty of variety for the sweet tooth and carnivore like me or for a vegetarian without a sweet tooth(like my anti-sweet wife).

Would definitely recommend this hotel to others. And will go back in the future.

P.S. we booked a red themed room.... It was very classy and elegant...

Thank you to the Al Duca staff for a very memorable honeymoon.

This fantastic little hotel is the perfect place to stay for a romantic getaway that is away from many of the tourist areas. While you might get a little lost trying to find it, but get use to that experience in Venice, it's not difficult to find the hotel. There is a friendly and helpful staff waiting for you. We stayed in a superior golden room on the ground floor and even though it is behind the lobby it is still a quiet stay. The room is large with a typical Italian bed, slightly harder then most but still comfortable, and a large bathroom which is set up for people with special needs. The breakfast was a cold breakfast with plenty of options to eat in morning. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel and will definately stay here again on my next visit to Venice.

Pretty little boutique hotel. Situated very close to the train station (1 waterbus stop away).
A fantastic restaurant right around the corner from it as well.
The furnishing are a bit weathered, mirrors were rusty but that wasn't a problem for us.
The bed was comfortable and we had a good night sleep.

My daughter & I stayed here for one night in July 2011. We arrived by train and found the hotel without getting lost. It was very clean and well appointed. Room was very large. The only thing was, our bathroom was up two flights of stairs and down a service corridor. It was clean and well equipped etc., just not as convenient as having the bathroom adjoining your room. If I were to stay here again, I would make sure I had an ensuited room. Otherwise, vaporetto stop fairly close by and well located. We were leaving for Venice on the overnight train which didn't leave till 9pm, and the hotel allowed us to leave our bags there all day after we had checked out, which was appreciated.

We stayed in Al Duca di Venezia for two nights in November to celebrate our first wedding anniversary.
We booked a classic room and on arrival were offered an 'upgrade' to one of their new apartments nearby - we went to see the apartments and whilst they were nice and would happily have stayed in them if that's what we were looking for and had booked, they weren't really what we wanted. So we went back to the hotel and were given a classic room on the ground floor behind reception. The room was lovely and very comfortable but was quite hot - and we just couldn't figure out how to keep the heating off! Our only niggle about the room was that being behind the reception and near the elevator we did hear some noise from the reception when other guests were entering and leaving the hotel. Also, you HAD to hand in your key when you left the hotel and to get your key back you just told them your room number - it didn't seem like a very secure system. Anyone could walk up to the front desk and say 'key for room ### please', but that may just be the way it's done in Venice.

The breakfast was nice and substantial - you can have a continental style breakfast included in the price of the room or pay a little extra for things like an omlette etc, and the woman who looked after you at breakfast was absolutely lovely.

The hotel is situated in a lovely part of venice - it's a lovely 20/25 minute walk from the main area of the city (San Marco/Rialto Bridge) to the hotel but you get to see so much more than the average tourist would. We were given good directions from the hotel staff on how to get to the Rialto bridge but chose to just wander around the streets for a while.

We spent the 1st 3 nights of our Italian honeymoon here and had a fantastic time. Slightly difficult to find as you have to navigate down a couple of narrow lanes before it opens up to a wider street. Not far from San Stae vaporetto stop.We arrived at night too, so was much easier to locate in the daylight! Welcoming reception staff who showed us our room which was right behind reception. A fairly big room by Venice standard and beautifully decorated. Great big bathroom although i think our room catered for disabled visitors with more of a wet room shower and disabled toilet facilities. Our room was right at the front entrance to the hotel, and even though it was off season, the location of the hotel on a quiet street gave a great undisturbed sleep. the breakfast facilities were good with friendly helpful staff offering fresh made cappuccinos. After hours of sightseeing, it was great to head back to the hotel, and continue to the end of the street, where we would sit on the Grand Canal and watch the continual buzz of Venice life. loved it, and would definately return.

Good location in the quieter, residential part of Venice. Follow the directions on the website and you can't go wrong. Very appealing reception and very helpful staff on reception. Be prepared for a detailed explanation on why you will have to pay 3 Euros per person, per night and why it has to be paid in cash only. Very interesting!
The room we had was a superior on the first floor opposite the gorgeous red rooms. It was beautifully decorated in the Venetian style. There was a safe and TV. En suite was excellent with a selection of toiletries. The bed was divine. Very comfortable. All in all, very good.
Breakfasts are very good with good coffee made to order, fresh pastries, cake, biscotti etc.
La Duca is an excellent base for exploring Venice and the hotel provides maps and will help you with directions and general help. I needed a pharmacy and the directions given to me helped me find it very quickly when otherwise it might have taken me ages.
There are some excellent places to eat nearby and if you look around, some of them are fairly reasonably priced.
If you can speak any Italian, it will go a long way with the Venetians. They appreciate you trying. They are very friendly and love a laugh and joke.
If you've never been to Venice and are thinking about going. What are you waiting for? Go!
Stay at this hotel and you can't go wrong. It's away from the crazy tourist hustle and bustle and you'll be glad of the peace and quiet after a day of sightseeing.
If there was a minus point, it was that there was no room service (and if there was, we were not made aware of it) and no tea and coffee making facilities in the room. I know that this is the norm in Italy but it makes this hotel a good Bed and Breakfast when it is just a step away from being a wonderful hotel.
