A four star luxury hotel that perfectly blends old and new. My parents and I had a fantastic stay here a few months ago. Elegant, yet understated where it needs to be, this hotel offers all the common amenities plus a choice between modern rooms and traditional ones that we found really accommodating. The location right on the grand canal and the views from the restaurant are absolutely spectacular and a reason to stay there in itself. The restaurant is definitely elegant, and actually surprisingly good since it is a tourist attraction within one big tourist attraction. We were blown away by the service as well. And being only minutes from St. Mark's square was definitely spectacular in terms of location as well. There are places in Venice where one can certainly spend a lot more, and though this is very expensive in high season, you can actually swing deals depending on when you go. Still though, in terms of beauty, comfort, and service, this more than fit the bill.
Antico Doge is situated right on a little canal 5 minutes walk from the Rialto. You are in the heart of Venice but not in an area swamped with tourists. The hotel has been recently renovated, with the emphasis on creating a very luxurious ambience - gilt cherubs, swags of drapery, trompe l'oeil. The bedroom was really comfortable with a great shower and a window over the canal (you could hear voices and footsteps - but, of course, no cars!). Very romantic and relaxing.
Accommodation in Venice is not cheap - and neither is this hotel - but the streets are litter free, public transport is brilliant, all goods have to be delivered by boat: if you consider these costs and the taxes that businesses must pay to cover them, then it is surely value for money. You can't expect to stay in a museum for nothing!
