Best location
Excellent small hotel in best location.
Edward, us3 night trip
Hotel Dona Palace, Venice
Fabulous stay
What a fabulous hotel on a little street right behind San Marcos square. A true 1 min walk. We loved our room with king sized bed and nice bathroom and view the little canal. We had drinks at the veranda bar and spoke with some of the other guests. It was a real treat and we will be back soon!

Hotel Dona Palace, Venice
Just off St. Marks... and fairly reasonable
Great location,beautiful room, super service, tasty breakfast. We weren’t lucky enough to have a canal view, but some rooms do have them. Room was very quiet even though the walkways down below were noisy. We would stay here again if we had the chance.

Hotel Dona Palace, Venice
This is the tiniest little hotel on the tiniest little side street in Venice... and it was one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever stayed in. Made us feel like royalty, our suite was amazing. Hated to leave the hotel to experience Venice!
