The Duodo palace was the perfect place to stay to visit all the main attractions in Venice. It is centrally placed between San Marco and Rialto Bridge and was reasonably easy to locate after arriving by water bus from the airport.The hotel is in a quiet little square just off the main thoroughfare. The reception staff were very helpful and able to give us lots of information on places to visit. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean. Breakfast was continental and self service with the option of having a cooked breakfast at extra cost. We found the continental to be quite sufficient and it was regularly freshly restocked.
All in all we had a wonderful time both at the hotel and in Venice City and would certainly recommend this as an excellent holiday destination!

Beautiful hotel, central to San Marco and Rialto. Arrived by water taxi from port (highly recommend), straight to hotel door. Elegant foyer, very distinguished professional staff. Luggage held until checkin time (and when we checked out also). Room we had, junior suite for three, was huge, soft golden furnishings, huge bed with double sofa bed for our son. Overlooked canal with opening windows. In the centre of our floor was a shared lounge area, with large balconies overlooking canal, very romantic. Included breakfast was wonderful, very helpful waitress with good selection. Absolutely loved our time in Venice, and if lucky enough to return will certainly stay at the Aqua Palace again. (and the airconditioning worked perfectly!)

This hotel was absolutely beautiful! What a wonderful way to start our first vacation in Venice. We had a large bedroom and two sitting rooms. The bathroom was enormous and there was a walk-in closet with a safe. Fluffy robes and slippers were provided. There was also a selection of pillows should you need something different. The room also contained an espresso machine. Open the windows and you can look down on the canal. This was absolutely five star. Breakfast was also included.
The hotel is a former residence and provides a sense of romantic Venice. It is right off a canal and one could arrive by water taxi, however, in our case we walked. It turned out to be about a 15 or 20 minute walk from the train station.
After leaving the main flow of pedestrian traffic, we walked through some narrow streets, and were then greeted by the lovely palazzo, garden, and exceptionally helpful front desk staff. The building itself is quite interesting. There is a museum on the second floor where one could imagine what it might have been like to live there years ago.
Our room was small, but it included amenities (like a bottle of sparkling wine and fresh fruit), and decorated to fit the historic surroundings.
