The Hotel Danieli is a masterfully restored palace synonymous with the splendor and romance of Venice. The property lies just steps away from the Piazza San Marco and its Basilica as well as legendary sites such as the Doge's Palace and the Bridge of Sighs.
The hotel's main building is the original 14th century palace of Doge Dandolo's family, a Venetian Gothic landmark lavishly appointed with pink marble, stained glass, ceilings decorated with golden leaves, Murano glass chandeliers and antiques. These glorious interiors are rivaled only by the captivating panoramic views from the rooftop restaurant, La Terrazza Danieli.
Designed in the late 14th century to meet the demands of Europe's traveling nobility, the Hotel Danieli continues to set the standard for hospitality at its best. The hotel's wide variety of services include room service, childcare, meeting facilities and an elegant lounge bar.

The room we had was facing right in front of the water where everything is happening eg. The water bus station, gondola, little kiosks etc. therefore it's quite a buzzling sn We had a very nice & spacious room but we had to pay about 900 something €. That's the ultimately the most expensive we had to pay for a hotel in my lifetime. It was a good experience.

The location was good, 5 mins to ST. Marks and 5 mins to the Rialto. The staff were 'OK' but at breakfast didn't acknowledge us. The room was nice and the view was good, even if it was rooftops, but that's OK. We could hear the occupants of adjoining rooms. The main stairway was unloved and really needed painting and a new carpet. Cheap enough though and I would be OK to go back.

An exquisite hotel in a excellent location. Reception/concierge staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Room well stocked and very well looked after by housekeeping and also very friendly. Yes, the hotel is very pricey as is Venice generally, but I would recommend this historic hotel to stay in even if it was only for one night whilst in Venice. Only negative, bar staff a little slow.

This was a chance to experience pure opulence. The water bus from the airport stops right outside and you are immediately in the heart of the city surrounded by restaurants and wonderful sights. The building is beautiful both outside and inside, oodles of marble, comfy sofas and a wonderful cocktail list.

2 noches El cuarto tenía roto la nevera y nunca intentaron arreglarla. La recepción y la salida es un atasco desordenado que crea mala imagen al entrar y salir del hotel y cuando se está en el salon del bar. La comida en la Terraza era solo de mediana calidad y el servicio de los camareros lento y malo, el precio desorbitado para lo que se ofrece. Lo unico maravilloso es la vista. El hotel vive de su maravillosa ubicación y arquitectura pero el resto no es de la categoría de 5 estrellas.

We were very disappointed with our stay at the Danieli. The staff was not very welcoming, we did not feel comfortable sitting in the lobby without having to order something. Our room though very nice was right on the canal, and each morning at 6am the trash was picked up right out side our window. We would not stay here again.

Great hotel. Great service. We were unfortunate to be in the hotel during extensive construction activity directly in front of our room. Compensation should have been offered. Also minibar prices were OUTRAGEOUS. We would stay there again. Great Staff

We were very pleased to be upgrated to a little junior suite. Service is generelly good, but we were missing the former familiar atmosphere. It is no longer the "old" Danieli, but more a hotel like all the big associations.. clean, effectiv and a little bit anonymious.

prices for any extra services (such as breakfast, minibar ...) are exaggerated. the Hotel is actually made of 3 buildings. bedrooms in the central "palazzo" are outstanding but if you are unlucky to end in the 2 others it's just a nice luxury room (some really tiny or even noisy) which simply doesn't worth the price. I tried both and I could see the difference. Being said that I ended in the nice room via venere.com and in the lesser one via direct booking... But next time I try the "Bauer Il Palazzo" or the "Luna Baglioni"

although the room was beautifully appointed the size was small very small bed just about fit in room.... no place for suitcases...also we got an alleyway room that was so noisy we could not go to sleep until 2 am and then in the morning were roused by noisy carts... they need to install sound proof windows...that being said the front desk was extremely helpful in all matters... they have 2 or 3 people working the desk at any time and could not do enough to make life easier... they deserve service medals for their helpfulness...did not eat there as the cost was prohibitive...26 euros each for breakfast...oh, and to hook up to internet was difficult...everything was in italian no english translation to sign on...

This was an excellent hotel: comfortable, well-placed and luxurious. The concierges were very helpful in getting us tickets, and giving good advice (though their directions from the Ryanair airport were inadequate, and there was a long wait for a taxi.) The roof terrace and restaurant were excellent, and I should eb happy to stay at the hotel again. I have already recommended it to a number of friends.

I thought that Daniele was so classic that staffs are not friendly. But, actually, they are very kind and more friendly. They helped us with smile when we asked them anything little. But you shall not request the complete silence. Ofcause you know, in such buildings you have to hear noise of your next-room clearly.

The hotel lobby was very good spacious andluxuriant. Our room was a little dissapointing for 350 pounds a night. The hoover clearly does not reach right the way to the walls. I was appalled at the price of the mini bar it really was probitive, about 4.50 for a can of coke. In the breakfast menu a plain 2 egg ommlette was about 14 pounds. It was prohibitive to use. With more user friendly prices i'm sure the restaurant would be packed. We went up to look and there was no one in it. Overall i did not feel that it was value for money.
