This place is not what you would traditionally call a B&B as breakfast was pretty much just biscuits and cereal. The staff were extremely pleasant, the location is excellent, it is literally 100 feet from an Indiana Jones scene and no more than 20 minutes from all the main attractions (St. Marks, Doges Palace, Hard Rock Cafe etc...). There are... More

Very nice, comfortable and clean place in Venice!! You can enjoy the beauty of this unique place in the world, standing in the middle of Venice. The owner is there to give you all the suggestions you need to know and live deeply the Real Venice. I will come back with my girlfriend very soon!!!!!!

We had a disasterous couple of nights stay at this b&b. The rooms are very basic, no air conditioning (don't do this in summer!), bathroom not in rooms, breakfast is a DIY with cheap ingredients, and not able to leave luggage once checked out which caused a lot of inconvenience & additional expense! The only positive things to say is... More

Hi you all I was there in Februar 21013 for St. Valentine and it was the best I ever had! This cosy B&B is located in front of San Barnaba Curch, close to Campo Santa Margherita ( centre of the venetina movida) but pretty quiet and with a wonderful view. The structure is, as usual in Venice,ancient, charming even if... More

This B&B was a disaster. Where to start? Well, first, when we arrived, the door was locked and no one answered either the doorbell or my very loud knocks. No check-in instructions; nothing. It turns out the owner was no where around; he must live far away, because we never saw him in 3 days there. Our phone didn't work... More

My husband and I are very seasoned travelers who take major trips at least three times a year and often more. We have visited 49 countries over the past 5 years, and usually stay at moderately priced hotels. We chose Ancient Venice specifically because of the reviews, and once we visited there we simply could not believe that anyone actually... More

My review is based on what easy books web site advertises. When we arrived you have to call the manager who took 30 min to arrive while we sat outside with our luggage! When we got to our room even though we booked a double it was 2 single beds, there was NO aircon and july is hot in Venice,... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
