At a Glance

The Danieli is one of the world’s most famous hotels, comprised of three historic palazzi beautifully re-envisioned by contemporary designers.


The Danieli is one of Venice’s most historic hotels. It’s comprised of three palazzi, the original of which belonged to the noble Dandolo family. Four of the Dandolos served as Doges of Venice; most famously Enrico, who returned from conquering Constantinople in 1204 and eventually incorporated some of the artful bounty he brought back into the interiors of the palazzo.

Today’s Danieli (it’s been a hotel since the 1820s) is located next to the fabled Doge’s Palace and Bridge of Sighs. Film buffs will recognize the interiors as those featured in many movies, including The Tourist, with Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp.

A special highlight are four suites that were designed by acclaimed Pierre-Yves Rochon and were unveiled in Palazzo Dandolo in 2012. Few places in Venice can match the splendor of the views, which encompass the Riva degli Schiavoni, Grand Canal and the lagoon’s islands. Not to be missed is Restaurant Terrazza Danieli, one of the city’s most romantic dining gems on the rooftop of the hotel.
