Hotel Danieli

Hotel Danieli lobbyThe name "Hotel Danieli" is synonymous with the phrase "Venice luxury hotel." The oldest of the Danieli's three buildings is a 14th Century palazzo that was built for the Dandolo family, which produced three Doges (heads of state) during the heyday of the Venetian Republic.

Today, nearly two centuries after the palace's conversion into a hotel, the Danieli has a loyal following among the rich and famous (as well as the merely rich). Its location is ideal for sightseeing and within a short walk of Venice's most exclusive shops. If you can afford the hotel's rates--preferably the discounted rates from Venere and Booking.com, and especially if you can manage a room or suite with a Lagoon view--you're likely to be rewarded by a memorable experience.

  1. As you leave the boat station, head to your left, toward the stone bridge.

  2. Cross the bridge.

  3. The Hotel Danieli's main entrance is in the rose-colored palazzo just beyond the bridge.

  2. Cross the bridge and walk a few meters to the vaporetto stop.

  4. Get off at San Zaccaria, turn left as you leave the boat station, and follow the directions above.
