Vintage Venice landmark oozing star quality
This lavish Gothic Venetian landmark – a former 14th century doge’s palace – glows with Venice’s golden past. Sitting in plum position by the lagoon, the Danieli is hard to beat for sheer old-time glamour.

● Vintage glitz – with Venice on a plate outside. ● Magnificent lagoon views from the rooftop bar. ● The opulent Gothic Venetian lobby.

Good to know
Rooms in the original building are the most atmospheric – give the modern wing a miss.

Well appointed rooms have cable TV, minibars, robes and luxury bathroom toiletries. Lagoon view rooms are the most sought after, though can be a shade noisier.

See & Do
You're perfectly placed here for Venice's blockbuster sights: just steps from the Doge's palace, Piazza San Marco and the Bridge of Sighs. You'll find a line of vaporetto stops along the quayside in front of the hotel, so hop aboard one for a ride across the lagoon to Giudecca island or a full-circle ride along the Grand Canal and back.
Guests have use of the private beach, pool and tennis courts at a sister property on the Venice Lido, with private transport laid on.
