“Compact and bijou”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I stayed here for one night while on business. From Marco Polo airport, the hotel is so easy to find, but parking is a bit limited. Check in was a breeze, even tho I booked it only minutes before arriving. The hotel appears to have been recently built, and is very clean and inviting, if you're on a budget.

The room itself was possibly the smallest that I have ever stayed in, but as I said I was on business, which means on expenses. That said, it was spotlessly clean, and the bed was super comfy. The bathroom was amazingly clean, which is always a must. The shower however, was without doubt THE smallest I have ever squeezed into. I now know how Superman feels when he changes clothes inside a phonebooth! Yes, it really is that small. A TV is up high on the wall, so you need to lay on the bed to watch. Elevator access to all floors.

As with most of the many hotels I have stayed in while in Venice, NO COFFEE OR KETTLE! No drama, tho. If you want a coffee/tea, go see the guy at Reception and I'm sure he'll make you one.

I have no idea what the breakfast id like, as I missed it. But, right across the street is a Grocery Store, and a Pizzaria out back.

All in all, a good choice! Would I stay again? Sure!!

Room Tip: Try and get a room out back, as the merchants set up for business before 0700, and they are very voc...

My daughter and I were passing through Venice the last weekend of Carnevale and the hotels that I had stayed at in Venice before were very expensive. We found Hotel Ducale on Tripadvisor and the reviews looked good. The hotel is in a very convenient location, a bus-ride or 5-10 minutes by taxi from Venice airport (Marco Polo) or from Mestre railway station. A regular bus (#19) takes you directly to Venice (Piazzale Roma) in 15-20 minutes.The rooms at the hotel are small, but since we just needed a place to sleep that did not present a problem. They also have larger rooms that can accommodate more than 2 people.The continental breakfast was fine and there is a choice of restaurants nearby the hotel, from pita and pizza to the excellent Trattoria da Piero just 5 minutes walk away, which was far better value than anything we found in Venice itself. We were very pleased with our 1-night stay and we booked to stay there again the following weekend before flying out. The hotel staff (who were very helpful and friendly) booked an early morning taxi for us and although it was too early for the regular breakfast (5:30) they provided coffee, juice and croissants before we left. All in all, if you just need a place to sleep while you visit Venice for far less than the Venice hotels charge, I recommend the Hotel Ducale.

Room Tip: We had no problem with noise but if you're a light sleeper it's better to request an upper f...

The noisest dingiest room Ive had at a hotel in a while. The hotel is located slap bang in the middle of two busy roads. The traffic is constant until 1am as well as youth banter and laughter from the downstairs bar. I think I just about managed two hours sleep when the traffic goes dead at night. Good breakfast though and friendly staff. Thats the only reason I give it an average.

Plenty of parking around the back or in front. when we left hotel was closing for change of ownership... which may not mean a lot of change but...

We were billeted here prior to a cruise from venice. It was the usual con by the travel company ie staying in a hotel in Venice for two days! No, not VENICE but Favaro. They shouldn't be allowed to get away with this!
However, the hotel is clean and the en suite facilities absolutely fine. The rooms are very basic and we found the beds hard. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast ok but the dining room is very cramped, so get down early to bag a good table!
The route into Venice isn't as direct as it is from Mestre but there is a good tram service which will take you to Mestre station and there's a bus stop just around the corner if you fancy that method. Be warned though, the bus can be crowded and it's a good 20-25 minutes being hurled around corners! The bus drivers here don't take any prisoners!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front could possibly be noisy as the hotel is right on the road. Cars, trams and buses...
