This was a fantastic find, in a quiet area, a few minutes walk from the Accademia into a peaceful picturesque location. All The Staff were extremely kind, helpful and polite. The room was very clean, & we were pleasantly surprised after a days sight seeing, to find our room had been tidied, with clean towels & fresh supplies of tea/coffee...

Booked this hotel via Groupon so was a bit dubious - but certainly no need to worry at all! Beautiful location - right beside a canal in this fantastic area of Dorsoduro which is not as touristy as most areas but has so much to see and interesting places. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help...

A great base in a wonderful quiet location close to the Ponte dei Pugni. It is just a short walk from the Ca Rezzonico water bus stop - with no bridges to cross between. Our room was tastefully decorated with a great chandelier, the only fault was a lack of storage space. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast...

Good location and helpful staff. But our room was rather tired, no wifi signal, dated shower, nowhere to plug in the kettle except on the floor by the door, damaged plaster ... Needs updating. Breakfast OK but basic. The historic staircase is nice to look at but, frankly, a bind to get up and down. Not a place for anyone...

What a great find. The hotel is in a very good location between 2 of the best squares we saw during our recent 5 days in Venice. It is in Dorsoduro district 2 min walk from CaRezzonica palace and water bus stop. It is on a quiet canal but just a few minutes walk to the busy squares where there...

This lovely little hotel is in a quiet neighborhood near the Ca'Rezonnico stop. Staff were friendly and our room had plenty of character, including plaster trim and a Venetian glass chandelier. A simple, plentiful cold breakfast was available every morning, along with hot tea or coffee. We could use the Wi-Fi in our second-floor room, although sometimes the signal was...

We stayed here for a long weekend for our honeymoon and can't fault it. The hotel is in the less tourist-centred area of Dorsoduro, situated on a quiet side street. The building itself is magnificent, and our room was perfect for our needs. The shower area is very small and takes a bit of getting used to, but is functional....

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This palace was a rich and magnificent residence of an aristocratic Venetian family, now it is an elegant and refined 3 stars Hotel, completely restored. The Hotel enjoys of an interesting position, preferred by the intellectuals and artists, searching for quiet and inspiration. Inside the Hotel, at the entrance, there is a stoned staircase that goes from the lobby to the second floor, once called "piano nobile", where there are some rooms. The intelligent restoration has effected a correct and balanced compromise between aesthetical demands and the non-renounced functional requirements, essential an hotel that wants to keep step with the times. The rooms, in typical Venetian style,are furnished with elegance and good taste, with all comforts (private bathroom with bathtub, hairdryer, cable TV, direct dial telephone, mini-bar, air-conditioned, coffee and thea machine). Our clients can also enjoy of a lightly and roomy sitting-room on the second floor, a bar on the ground floor with a free internet point, and a nice and big veranda overlooking the garden, where the buffet breakfast is served in the morning. ... more   less
