david, I stayed at Albergo Doni on my last visit to Venice, and found the room very comfortable, but certainly not luxurious. However, I didn't have the opportunity to have a look at a family room, so have no way to compare it to the room I had.

I'm a bit unclear on your question? Are you asking if the price is good? If so, it sounds reasonable to me. I found Venice to be more expensive than many other locations I visited in Italy, so €39.00 per person sounds quite fair. The breakfasts were more of a "Continental" style, rather than a "full" breakfast, but that's about the same anywhere in Italy. The Albergo is located right next to a canal, so there are often Gondolas tied up right outside the door. Also easy walking distance from there to the Vaporetto stop, restaurants, Piazza San Marco, etc.

The "bottom line" is that I enjoyed my stay at Albergo Doni and would certainly consider it for my next visit (whenever that might be?).

Cheers!

We have also stayed at that hotel-but not in the family room. It is in a great location, but again, not luxurious. If you are just needing a room and won't be spending too much time there, I would book it. The people that run the desk are very nice. On my most recent trip to Venice I stayed at Hotel San Gallo, nicer, better location, nice terrace for breakfast...I don't know what they have for rooms that fit 5, but I would check www.hotelsangallo.com. Another hotel I would recommend is www.locandalevele.com- we stayed at the hotel but it was booked for our last two nights so they offered an apartment--it was really great, recently remodeled, spacious, kitchen, etc. Overall, I have stayed at 6 different places in Venice, besides the pricey rooms, I would go back to the two I recommend above (San Gallo and Locanda Le Vele). The 2nd is in a more residential area, but I enjoyed that.

Albergo Doni is a nice find- on two trips to Venice we've stayed there; the site is convenient, and it is pretty quiet, but you're steps away from San Marco and the main drag between there and the Rialto bridge- what I'm saying is, you generally will have to wade through crowds to get most anywhere.

thank you for the info.
seeing other posts on the hotel makes me think it may not pay to save $100 a night, and deal with dark, old, bugs, and poor A/C for sleep.
If it were just me, I'd go to Doni, but with the family, I'd like it a bit nicer.
