A classy, elegant, luxury boutique hotel, the Donà Palace is a four star property overlooking the Rio at the Doge's Palace with its famous Bridge of Sighs, just a few steps from Europe's largest drawing room, Saint Mark's Square. The Hotel Donà Palace's exclusive setting in the historic heart of Venice is favoured for its priviledged position. Though close to so many important Venetian landmarks, the hotel's luxurious lodgings and accommodation have a refreshingly intimate quiet ambience, blending perfectly with the reflecting warmth of Venetian gothic design.

San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

100 m from San Marco - you can hear the church bells! Suggest you attend early morning mass. The hotel is close to all activities - you take a quiet stroll before the crowds arrive or late in the evening for gelato. Gondola stop off of beautiful garden patio area ... lovely

Our first visit to Venice - did not know what to expect. Hotel Dona Palace was wonderful from check-in to check-out. The breakfast buffet was excellent. We had to be at the airport very early on the day of check-out and the desk clerk had a to-go breakfast for us as we were

An absolute gem of a hotel with only 26 rooms in a brilliant location. We stayed 4 nights and couldn’t fault it. Very pleasant helpful staff. Donato the bar manager is such a lovely welcoming gentleman who nothing was a bother for him - he is a star and an asset to the hotel.

Pretty simple. Pre-order your ticket, then head for the dock at St. Marcos. You can either hire someone to take your luggage to the dock, or schlep them yourself. It's not far.

We used Sanitrans for our transport from the airport as we needed a wheelchair accessible water taxi. We booked and paid for the ride prior to our arrival through their website. We used this method because we had been travelling for 30 hours and were somewhat weary, it was also a lovely way to arrive in the city. We were 2 people but I don't know if the number of people affects the price. We paid around 130 E for our ride in one direction. The water taxi pier is clearly signposted in the airport and you walk along a covered moving pavement to the water, takes about 5 - 10 minutes.
