I stayed to Ducale Hotel four nights, traveling for leisure and sightseeing to Venice with my wife. The location is PERFECT just 15 minutes by bus from airport (bus stop just 100 meters from the hotel entrance) and 20-30 minutes by bus from Venice. Although is located on a very busy street, during night everything is calm and quiet. Area is very quiet and we didn't see any danger during our late night returns.
The room was quite small but comfortable and well equipped for the type of the hotel. Staff very friendly, helpful and polite. Towels changed every day and the hotel is very clean and tidy. Breakfast was quite good continental.
And now MY PERSONAL MAJOR PROBLEM. The size of the shower basin and the surrounding glass was TOO SMALL for my size.I am a quite big man (1.96m, 110 kg), heavy build and muscular. The entrance in shower cabin is 1.90m in height and about 40 cm wide, so I couldn't get inside in order to have a shower. I ask for another room with more space in the shower and the only available was a room with bathtub and they ask me to pay 20 Euro supplement per day for that. I denied and I feel a little pissed off about that.I managed to have shower by taking out one of the surrounding glasses (I don't know if can be fixed again but i don't care because I needed to take a shower during my stay).
So my recommendation to the management is to do something about that ASAP, so normal (hehehehehe) sized persons like me can use it.
Of course I recommend this hotel to anyone that is not more than 1.80 in height or more than 100 kilos in weight.
