Hotel Al Duca di Venezia
Ranked #49 of 385 Hotels in Venice
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 March 2014

This is a small but absolutely nice hotel. I was pleasantly surprised from the moment I walked in. The beautiful mid age Italian lady at the front desk, who spoke clear English with that charming Italian accent, was really nice and welcoming. I thought I already had a great bargain but, with a wonderful smile, she immediately offered me an upgrade free of charge. The hotel, apparently the former residence of a Venitian aristocrat, feels very homey unlike most commercial hotels. The rooms are exquisitely decorated. Mine had a very romantic soft red theme all throughout (walls, rugs, elegant window draperies, bedside lamps). Very comfortable and decent-size bed. Flat screen TV on the wall with tons of channels available (none in English though). Elegant and well equipped bathrooms. The room was squeaky clean and, not sure whether it was deodorant or encens, but it smelled exquisitely good. It was also extremely quite and peaceful, thanks in part to the residential neighborhood and also the small size of the hotel (which must be no more than a dozen or so rooms). The free buffet breakfast was pretty good (eggs, fruits cocktails, cereal, assortments of delicious croissants, selection of cheeses, juices, yoghurt, and you can even order expresso or cappuccino at no charge from the very nice and professional Sri Lankan server). The only potential downside is that the hotel is a good 30 mn walk from San Marco, but it's a nice walk through some of the liveliest and most beautiful streets of Venice. I escaped to Venice for only a short visit while on a business trip to Rome and I wasn't really sure whether this city would live up to all the hype. It really did. I fell in love with this wonderful city (if nothing else, being from traffic-crazy Washington DC, I couldn't stop marveling at the idea of going a whole day without seeing a single car! But that's just icing on the cake- there is so much more to the charm of this place) and I also fell in love with this charming little hotel. For less than half the price of the 4-star Sheraton I stayed in Rome, it was actually actually twice as good and far more enjoyable. I will definitely be staying there again next time I visit Venice, and hopefully for a much longer stay.

We had an amazing time in this hotel ! We just stayed for 1 night and it was really not enough! We took the superior room and the price was very nice ! (we went in february, just before valentine's day). The room was exactly like the pictures. We had a big red bed and i felt like a princess ! The breakfast is nice but no eggs etc.. for the price it was very good ! The hotel was also very clean.
The personnel of the hotel is very prevenent ! The most part of them speak french, if they don't, they speak english. It's quite difficult to find the hotel but I suppose it's the ame thing for all the holet in Venezia !

Room Tip: We took the room 201 and it was really nice !

This was my second time visiting the hotel (after having such a lovely experience the first time round) and I was impressed that standards remained just as high, and some of the friendly staff were still there. Cleanliness, comfy beds and impeccable shower rooms are always high up my list and it was nice to see this as also maintained. Breakfast, which was included in my stay, was bountiful, with good selection and strong coffee ready to help me start the day. I still remember the fresh smell of croissants which filled the room! So another nice stay here, who knows if I visit Venice again, I'll be making the Duca de Venezia part of the trip once again.

Excellent hotel in a perfect location: far from the chaotic San Marco but close by all the main attractions the city has to offer! Very nice and friendly staff! Rooms are super cosy and extremely nicely decorated.

The staff spoke English and were super helpful. The hotel was a little hard to find but was actually close to everything. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was great. We would stay here again!

Great hotel option for Venice. Fairly close to the train station so it is relatively convenient drop off luggage prior to exploring Venice. The breakfast choices are pretty good compared to other hotels in Italy (they had quiche and a cheese and meat platter available vs the usual pastries only). Rooms were nice and fairly spacious. Courteous front desk service. Will definitely plan to go back if we ever find ourselves in Venice again.

A really nice hotel about 20 minutes walk from St. Mark's square. Michelle (receptionist) spoke perfect English and was very very helpful. Breakfast was continental and tasty. The bedroom was clean and decadent (requested the red room) and overall excellent value for money.

As it's a little off the beaten track, you need a good map to be able to find your way back in the evening.

A couple of minutes walk from the S.Stae Vaporetto stop (Line 1 takes you to S.Marco via Rialto). Alternatively when walking, follow signs for the Natural History Museum (next door to hotel).

Room Tip: Request the Red Room if you're looking for the ultimate romantic stay!
