Hotel Danieli

Hotel Danieli

ABOVE: The Hotel Danieli is made up of three buildings. The most historic--and spectacular--is the 14th Century Palazzo Dandalo in the center of the photo. INSET BELOW: A close-up of the Danieli's architectural details, and a view from the restaurant upstairs.

Category:  Five-star luxury hotel.

Location: On the Riva degli Schiavoni, a few meters east of the Doge's Palace and the Piazza San Marco. Closest Alilaguna Airport Boat stop: San Zaccaria (although, if you're staying at the Danieli, you'll probably splurge on a water taxi).

Convenient when:

Hotel Danieli interiorYou're willing to pay top rates for location, luxury, and atmosphere at a hotel that vies with the Gritti Palace for the title of "most spectactular luxury hotel in Venice."

Hotel Danili rooftop restaurantThe Danieli's lobby looks like a movie set, with its ornate Venetian Gothic architecture and lavish appointments. Upstairs, guest rooms range from luxury doubles to suites. Rates are as spectacular as the views from rooms overlooking the lagoon, and as sky-high as the tables in the rooftop restaurant.

Aerial photos:

  • The upper image shows the Campanile di San Marco, St. Mark's Basilica, and the Doge's Palace on the left. Just across the bridge and to the right, the Danieli's main building (the red Palazzo Dandolo) shows off its 14th Century Venetian Gothic façade.

  • In the close-up photo below, you can see an enclosed bridge (the hotel's answer to the Bridge of Sighs) connecting the Palazzo Dandolo with the Danieli's adjacent building on the Riva degli Schiavoni.
