We recently spent three nights here in the presidential suite, this is located at the far end of the garden from the main hotel with 4 other rooms. The suite had lovely views over the lagoon and the garden the other side . I was a bit disapointed that there was no coffee machine in the room and the mini bar contained only water (perhaps due to covid? though other hotels in Italy had full mini bars)
The garden is rather special and enchanting with a seating area looking out over the water.
I found the breakfast a bit restricted and the cappuccini a bit strange.
Being on a quiet canal was nice and there were plenty a restaurants within a five mins walk
TLDR: Great hotel, everything you could want from a 5 establishment, and we would highly recommend.
Located in a quieter part of Venice, the Grand Hotel dei Dogi was a gorgeous base from which to explore this beautiful city. The streets and areas around the Hotel feel like you are experiencing a more genuine, non-touristy Venice, whilst the city is small enough that everything (incl all attractions) remain easily within reach.
The hotel itself is stunning and exactly what we wanted (old school Venice luxury). They upgraded us to a room with a view, a nice touch and we were left stunned by the sunset view of the canal from our windows. The room itself (Premier) was large with high ceilings and a lovely bathroom. Shower pressure good, Acqua Di Parma toiletries a lovely addition and the robes and slippers perfectly sumptuous.
The Garden was the true stand out for us; supposedly the largest private garden in Venice, it really is beautiful, with its walled exteriors, little caves and paths and bridges, all leading down to a jetty overlooking the surrounding islands. A wonderful way to spend your time if you can and a beautiful little addition. Of course, getting engaged on that jetty probably makes us a little biased!!
Breakfast was good (particularly under the current COVID circumstances and the lack of buffet) and the server very attentive; coffee magnificent and the omelette very good.
Service overall in the hotel was top notch and exactly what you would expect from a 5 hotel, with the cleanliness and quality of all the Hotel areas up to scratch.
Our only slight gripe is how expensive the Hotel bar was (€18 for a cocktail is expensive but manageable, but €14+ for an Aperol Spritz is ludicrous when it is €4 round the corner in wine bars). There are however enough great wine bars near not to worry about having to drink here.
Overall, could not recommend highly enough, especially when you compare the value for money here against other 5* hotels in Venice; whilst they may be located closer to attractions the city is so gorgeous to walk around in and small enough that this is not necessarily a positive, and certainly does not outweigh the cost increase. A lovely time spent here and would go back again.
Beautiful hotel, perhaps a bit old but with a lot of charme. The hotel staff is extremely helpful, breakfast was delicious. There is a splendid garden and a complimentary shuttle boat to San Marco and to Murano. Quiet and less touristic location with more authentic restaurants and bars nearby.
