The hotel is situated at a 15 minute walk from St Marc's Square & 10 minutes from the Rialto Bridge. The hotel is lovely, cosy & decorated in a venetian style. The corridors & stairways are decorated with Murano glass mirrors & light-fittings, beautiful! The staff are very friendly & helpful. My husband, my 4 chidren (ages 4, 11, 13,...

My sister and I stayed 2 nights here on our recent trip. I'm sure we'd plan longer stay in the future! The hotel staff was incredibly accommodating - even let us check in very early in the day after arriving on the night train from Rome. The room was lovely, large by European standards, quite comfortable, and had a charming...

To say that the new apartments give you the best of both worlds - independence yet the breakfast & other facilities of the Hotel - is an understatement. I hesitate to praise too much for fear of exciting interest & uncreasing the number of people with whom I shall have to do battle next time to book an apartment! Truly...

This hotel was fantastic. We arrived really early from the night train from Munich (we had very little sleep as it was such a bad trip!) so we were so glad that our room was available to check into straight away. The man at the front was always friendly and helpful, the room was on the 1st floor overlooking the...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for three nights. We booked directly through their website and got a pretty good rate for a canal view. In my correspondence with them, I'd requested to have a room with multiple balconies, as I'd read about these rooms on Trip Advisor. They did not disappoint. We had one on the side,...

This was not our first trip to Venice, but the first stay in this hotel. They gave very clear directions to the hotel from Marco Polo airport, and it was very easy to reach the hotel. We got a great deal from them, and we had a room with a balcony overlooking the quiet canal, just one block down from...

We visited here for 3 nights with our two teenage girls. The hotel is located on a really pretty canal, which had a restaurant next door, but was really quiet as well. We had a family room which was really big, for Venice, and had a well appointed modern, but small, bathroom. Breakfast was very good, with very attentive staff....

The Hotel is in a very good location with access to the Water Taxis. Our room, which overlooked the canal was great and the service and breakfast was excellent. The Hotel is in a quiet location but close to the Accademia Bridge. We will definitely stay there again. Barbara J

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.
