Duodo Palace in Venice

Our opinion… This is a superb 4* hotel that enjoys a great location just 5 minutes walk from St Marks square and close to the famous Fenice Theatre. This hotel was an old palace that has been totally restored and brought back to its former glory. The hotel is professionally run yet offers a friendly, personalised service.

Location… Calle Minelli San Marco 1887/1888, San Marco. Well located 5 minutes from St Marks Square and 10 minutes from Rialto Bridge.

Accommodation… This hotel has only 38 rooms and facilities include air conditioning, mini bar and internet via the television. Bedrooms are of a good size with all modern facilities, decorated in an elegant Venetian style, many rooms having original frescoed ceilings.

Facilities… Breakfast room and lounge/bar.

Transport… 5 minutes from vaporetto stop.

Complimentary upgrade to Deluxe room. Great size and well equipped bathroom. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh, tasted good and served with a smile. Good location near to main attractions. A location map would have been very welcome with holiday information pack and/or directions from public transport stops.

Hotel was in excellent location, staff were professional and helpful. Only thing that concerned me as an asthma sufferer was perfumed rooms nice but affected my breathing. Good breakfast with plenty of tea or coffee. Good atmosphere was created by bar staff.

Situated near the Fenice Theatre and within easy walking distance of St Mark\\\'s and the Rialto, this is a lovely, cosy, welcoming hotel. Our spacious, understated (by Venetian standards) rooms were on the top floor, with great views. The floors below us have high ceilings and are more grandly decorated. Staff are friendly and helpful. I really could not fault any aspect of the hotel - even the breakfasts were above expectations.

The hotel is in an excellent location 5 minutes walk from San Marco. It is an elegant but discreet hotel tucked away and very quiet.

The hotel was in a good central but very quiet and peaceful position. The staff were unobtrusive but friendly and helpful. Our room was a reasonable size and the breakfasts had a good cold selection with plenty of choice. I would certainly go there again

Room was beautiful - fabric (brocade) on walls matched bedspread etc. Bathroom facilities excellent. Was in good location not too far from main tourist venues. Would definitely use this hotel again.

Ideal location - very central for all major sights. Hotel staff very helpful, always gave good accurate advice and information in faultless English. Rooms very comfortable and roomy - ceilings worth particular notice - beautiful.

The Duodo Palace hotel, is situtated no more than a 10 minute walk from St Marks Square. The room we had (501) had the most lovely views of the roofs of Venice, a spacious bathroom and bedroom, wit a very comfortable bed. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful, I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and would love to stay in a hotel of this quality and class again.

The Duodo Palace is an excellent hotel only 5 minutes walk from all the attractions. Would stay again.
