Comfortable well-appointed hotel just off The Grand Canal close to the Academia and the Academia Bridge in a residential neighborhood. Our room had an excellent view (requested) from a small balcony looking towards the Grand Canal. It was quiet and pleasant. The bathroom was so tiny it barely held one persons let alone two. There was a step up so...

When we arrived it was about 7pm and dark. The hotel the prettiest we had passed from the outside and was warm and spotless inside. It was easy to find and as we found out later in a superb position to explore Venice. Reception was friendly and booking in was simple and quick. Our room was warm and typically Venitian....

My daughter and son-in-law stayed in Hotel American Dinesen last year and recommended it to us. We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It's on a pretty street and canal close to the Accademia Bridge, which is a great location, and view. The room and bathroom were beautifully appointed, and very clean. We had a junior suite with a...

Stayed here for five nights with extended family (grand-parents, in-laws, kids). We had all stayed in this hotel before, but many years ago. It was still great. Perfect location, extremely friendly and accomodating. Great breakfast which is not always a given in Italy. Highly recommended.

We were two adults and two teenagers and booked the junior suite (the one not with the canal view). The room had two separate areas with a king bed in one and two twin beds in the other. I think the area with the two twin beds is really a sitting area that converts to a second bedroom. Breakfast is...

With it's only jetty for arrivals, this local gem sits just off the beaten path, allowing for peaceful solitude and respite from the throbbing crowds when it all gets too much, but is perfectly located between Ponte D'Accademia and Punta Della Dogana when you want to get stuck in. Impeccable service, great staff, neat and tidy rooms in a gaudy...

My teenage daughter and I stayed at Hotel American Dinesen and enjoyed the hotel and location. Very close to the central part of Venice yet just out of the way. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. I would highly recommend.

We stayed for six nights here from March 26-April 1. Room 301 for one night then Room 202 (3 balconies!) for remainder. Great hotel with very hospitable employees. This hotel is tucked away from all the hustle and bustle but is only a 15 minute walk to San Marco Piazza or Rialto Bridge. The accademia vaporetto stop is minutes away....

Check in was quick and painless. Very friendly reception staff. We had room 202 which had 3 little balconies and was lovely to be able to open the full length doors and listen to the sounds of Venice. Beautifully decorated room with lovely views. Great location and far better being one canal off the Grand canal which is very noisey....

Cosy and human sized in a quiet and romantic area, remote from the crowd. Makes me think of Paris 7th district, rue de Verneuil, rue de Lille... I now feel at home. Good management, good staff, increasing quality level. Getting a 4th star permitted to enjoy an up rated breakfast

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
