The Hotel Danieli in Venice Italy is the most wonderful hotel in the world! I really can't say that I agree one tiny little bit with your site putting the Hotel Danieli down as the second best luxury hotel in Venice.
I put it first. I know it is subjective but I have never stayed in a better hotel anywhere - ever!
On our last trip to Venice, where of course we stayed at the Hotel Danieli, it was as fabulous as it ever was. Total and absolute perfection from start to finish. The Hotel Danieli staff are always lovely and the Danieli's rooms are exquisitely beautiful.
I always feel like royalty when staying here - the Danieli is really more like a royal palace than a hotel and the food is amazing, only the finest of quality. The location is the best in Venice.
For me the Hotel Danieli will always be one of my most wonderful memories of Venice. I will never forget the first time I arrived; I travelled from Venice airport in one of those beautifully polished wooden taxi boats that go right up to the door of the Danieli, the one with the little bridge above the side canal. It was early morning and everything was bathed in this magnificent golden light. It was truly enchanting.
If you are going to come all the way to Venice and spend money then don't skimp on a hotel - a trip of a lifetime should be enjoyed in the hotel of a lifetime and the Hotel Danieli is that.
The Hotel Danieli is fabulous - the absolute best!!
P.S. I have stayed at five star hotels on four continents so I really do know what I am talking about.
Thank you, Jenny, for your review, and Maria (my wife) and I have to agree that it is a great hotel.
I always feel like I am back in the days of the Doges when I stay here, and the atmosphere is truly unique and truly Venetian. If you want your Venice experience to last 24 hours a day, then no hotel is better than the Danieli. You'll never mistake it for one of those global chains where the hotels are the same wherever you go, and you'll never have any doubt that you are in Venice, from the moment you awake until the moment you lay your head on their incredibly wonderful pillows.
In my opinion, it is not the best in Venice, but that is entirely subjective. I can easily see why you love it so much, and I am sure there are a lot of people who would agree with you completely.
