After the recent upgrades in the mid-1900s, and the recent restoration of the delightful suites, today the hotel is an ideal starting point for exploring Venice, the city streets and the museums, its churches and trendy boutiques. A location immersed in a prestigious environment, with stucco finishes and marble, gilded ceilings and Murano glass chandeliers, as well as Damask and Corinthian columns. A place where comforts and modern amenities combine to make your stay a refined and very worldly one.

From many of Hotel Danieli Deluxe rooms, all furnished in Empire style, with high ceilings, damask fabrics and Murano glass chandeliers, you can admire a delightful view over the Lagoon, the Giudecca Island and San Giorgio Island. Many other rooms overlook the “calli” surrounding the three buildings that make up the hotel, that is, Palazzo Dandalo – joined by a suspension bridge to Casa Nuova, and Palazzo Danieli Excelsior, recently restored and featuring a rooftop restaurant called La Terrazza Danieli.

The Doge Dandolo Royal Suite, located on the main floor of Palazzo Dandolo, is in a corner location that makes it ideal to admire a 180° view of the Lagoon, including the entrance to the Grand Canal and St. Mark’s bell tower. The living room of this suite is enriched with 19th century royal portraits, antique silver items, Baroque armchairs, tables in Carrara marble, frescoes in the sleeping area and rugs over the Venetian Terazzo floor. The large library features a Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 10, a large 40″ full HD LCD TV with LED backlighting. The goal was to create a unique environment, so that the Doge Dandolo Royal Suite could only be included in the “101 Top Hotel Suites” list.

In addition to the luxurious furnishings of the rooms with a view, and the prestigious Venetian Baroque-style suites, Venice Hotel Danieli is renowned for its restaurant on the top floor of Palazzo Danieli Excelsior.

From April through October, Terrazza Danieli Restaurant can host up to 120 guests, who can treat themselves to tasty dishes prepared by Chef Gian Nicola Colucci while enjoying a magnificent view over the Lagoon and its islands. The restaurant offers a selection of traditional dishes along with Mediterranean specialties, all prepared by Venetian master Colucci, chef of international stature, expert in classic Italian cuisine but reinterpreted with a modern twist.

Adjacent to the restaurant is Bar Terrazza Danieli, open to hotel guests and tourists who want to enjoy a moment of relaxation during their visits to Venice. Aperitivo or after dinner time have a very special taste here, due to the unique view that can be admired from the terrace. Those who prefer a warmer atmosphere, can head towards Bar Dandolo instead, not just a bar, but a place immersed in a 14th century atmosphere, which has been awarded by Gambero Rosso with the Bar d’Italia Prize for eight consecutive years, and, in 2011, with the “Hotel Bar” Prize, by the food & wine Community par excellence.

The services offered by Venice Hotel Danieli can only be in proportion to all of its magnificence and luxury.
