Rated 5 out of 5 by Seacarl Beautiful Building
The Hotel Danieli is house in a beautiful building which is in itself a work of art and contains beautiful paintings and mirrors. It is a pleasure to walk around the building. The hotel is located close to the Piazza San Marco and therefore close to many tourist sites and shopping. It is also close to the San Zaccaria boat stop. Breakfast in the rooftop restaurant is a great treat. As Platinum members we received an upgrade to a suite. We would love to return. While water taxis are expensive, the hotel has a private dock and it is a great way to go to the airport or train station.

Rated 5 out of 5 by notyourtypicalgurl97 One word to describe - STUNNING!
This is my first time in Venice - my very first European trip I must say. Its a gift from my Aunt in celebration of my birthday. Staying at Danieli is simply the cherry on top of this whole escapade.
Upon check-in, we were offered a room upgrade from luxury double to an executive suite (my aunt is a gold member) which we very much appreciate. When we finally got to our room.. oh boy, I cant help but feel like im home. Honestly, I didnt want to leave the room.
The location is PERFECT - close to the vaporetto station making public commute easier.
Sfaff are friendly and helpful.
The roof top resturant has a stunning view!
Danieli didnt just meet our expectations, they have exceeded it. Well worth the pricetag!
Thank you for making this trip a lot more wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by globetrotters From the moment of arrival the Danelli was a fabulous experience.
The gentleman who checked us in was wonderful and gave us, as platinum, an amazing balcony, lagoon view upgrade. The room was lovely and the bathroom was amazing, especially the marble counter at the sink... gorgeous. We followed the advice of other platinum members and took the breakfast (on the terrace) as our platinum choice. Great advice! The view, breakfast and ambiance is spectacular. Could just veg up there for hours. It is a quality full breakfast buffet. However, there were a couple of problems with the terrace. 1. The Danelli allows smoking anywhere on the terrace. At the very least, for the comfort of ALL the guests there should be a smoking/non-smoking area... to the left as one goes out the door... a small area since only one person each time we were there was smoking. We don't care if people smoke... just not the 2nd hand smoke in our faces especially as we are trying to enjoy a meal. Unfortunately each morning we had the only smoker on the terrace at the table right next to us... one morning a chain smoker which totally ruined the meal. 2. The other issue on the terrace was the service. (Otherwise our staff rating would have been excellent too) The person we had both days was Flavio... the worst. My spouse had a cappuccino... to get a second cup took forever!... an act of congress if you will. We weren't in a hurry, however, when one finishes a cup of coffee or anything else, the item is cleared or refilled... didn't happen for the longest time. The other servers seemed efficient, but Flavio had an issue. I guess it was because the first morning we requested a table away from the smoker next to us... shouldn't have been a problem as there were several tables. Flavio wanted us inside or around the corner in the back without much of a view... and there were tables with fabulous views available. Even with the smoking & Flavio issue, we totally enjoyed the terrace, but how much nicer would it have been without the smoke in our faces as we were eating breakfast. We didn't go for cocktails and dinner as planned because of the smoke & service issue. For cocktails, we went down to the Gritti Palace and sat on their terrace bar on the Grand Canal for quite awhile one afternoon... it was absolutely lovely, pricey, but lovely and when in Venice will do it again.
We didn't take advantage, but the large lobby area is also a lovely place to have a drink and enjoy the Danelli.
Check out was a little slow, but then a gentleman finally opened up another spot and then all went quickly. Didn't use the concierge as we have been to Venice several times so cannot comment.
All in all we could spend a great deal of our time in the Danelli when in Venice... and we did spend a great deal of time on our veranda. Thank you to all of the staff at the Danelli for providing us with a memorable stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AndrewBrooklyn My favorite hotel in Italy
This hotel is like a museum. Was built in XIV Century. Location is fantastic. Just a few blocks for main attractions. I really liked my room - great lagoon view, separated bedroom - pretty cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ckd1 Fantastic Stay
Spent a wonderful 4 nights at the Danieli. Exactly as expected. Agree with other reviews - the roof-top terrace for breakfast is amazing! Thoroughly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seattleite Fabulous!
Another great stay at the Danieli! We were recognized as Platinum members and upgraded to rooms facing the Grand Canal at the Danieli Excelsior. Great rooms, fully renovated.The breakfast at the terrace is a must!
The welcome by Marco at the front desk was one of the friendliest ever and at the same time very professional. Thank you.
We had a special request to retrieve forgotten items in Florence and the concierge, Davide, could not have been any more helpful and gracious. He is a consummate professional able to resolve a complicated situation with a smile. Grazie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaJolla Danieli was Magnificient!
I can tell you I agonized over which hotel to chose for Venice, and so delighted we chose the Danieli. Its location is magnificent with views of St Georgo Majoro. We are SPG Platinum and they gave us a magnificient room with extraordinary views. The staff was delightful, particularly Hector in the Lobby who was always polished and ready to help. Would recommend using their airport service which is top notch and will leave you feeling like royalty
