“Tried hard to like it.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Location is on a quiet little hard-to-find street in Venice (but aren't they all?) and not really convenient to anything. Hotel told us to take the vaporetto to San Stae and follow the signs....haha, there were no signs! Finally found it and then waited for Caterina to end a very long phone call and were shown to our pre-paid room. Ach! I felt like Alice in the rabbit hole...except for the king size bed, everything was miniature! (including the ceiling height.) We were on the top floor (room 301) and there was NO window, just a skylight...the toilet butted heads with the bidet (couldn't use one without bumping into the other) and I don't know how a person over 200# could fit into the mini-shower. Of course, we asked for another room but were told that they were totally booked, "otherwise, they would give us the best room in the house"...right. Breakfast buffet included in the price was ok. Bed and pillows were firm. Free Wi-fi sketchy in the room, ok in the lobby. Certainly not as large or elegant as pictured. Would not stay here again.

Room Tip: 301 has no window, just a skylight in the very low ceiling. Very tiny room.

My husband and I stayed here for a few days recently and were happy with our stay. Upon check in the front desk was helpful with directions and recommendations for dinner. This hotel is tucked away from the busy parts of Venice, however is a quick walk to wherever you wish to go. I do suggest following their advice by watching for the yellow "museum civico" signs to find your way to the hotel. They were kind in providing an anniversary treat for us at check in and accommodating when we needed to leave before breakfast was officially served. For the price, this was a great stay and I am glad we chose Al Duca di Venezia.

We stayed at the suite room and it was great, clean, big, romantic. Difficult to find in Venice with reasonable prices. However, it takes about 15-20 mins to walk from S.Marco and the last few streets are dark and narrow. If you are walking after 10 pm, it might feel a bit awkward. Venice is a safe city but still...It is close to the train station but you still need to walk for about 7-8 mins and you have to cross 3-4 bridges and it's a pain with the luggage.

Room Tip: Suite room is very good.

Great service, nice people, beautiful and silent room, nice breakfast, good beds. Vaporetto nearby and still not in the over touristic area. This is a perfect hotel for a pleasant and relaxed stay in Venice!

Room Tip: You van choose the red (romantic!) or white rooms (also beautiful).

The hotel was great! I love our room(310), it has a very romantic feel in it. Michelle was very helpful and very accommodating. The other staff were great as well as friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel and hopefully we'll be able to come back and enjoy the romantic place that is Venice.

My wife and I stayed here in early October. We had a pleasant stay and the staff was very nice. The internet connection and login process was frustrating. I would recommend this hotel for people who like to turn in early. This is not a tourist area, after 9-10PM there is nothing open. The room was small but clean, nice size bathroom. Charming area. I would recommend making a reservation at the nearby restaurant " La Zucca".

After a 12 day cruise to Croatia, Turkey and Greece, I was ready for a bed on land! I was traveling with 2 other women and we needed a large, but reasonably priced hotel. We found that here. The staff was SUPER accomodating, with everything from walking me at 430am to my private water taxi, recommending a DELICIOUS restaurant within walking distance for dinner, to providing maps and off the beaten path sites to explore. The front desk staff was friendly and sooooo helpful! The room was over the top RED Venetian COOL decor, well done, large and nicely appointed. Bathrooms were large and beautifully done. We found the beds are hard, but from our experience, that is pretty standard in Europe. The hotel is a great value and we were treated like queens. I would stay there again and recommend it.
