Very nice, recently renovated hotel. Great room, decent size, very clean, everything new. Awesome bathroom. Good breakfast with good service. Balcony over a beautiful canal, with a lateral view of the grand canal. Short walk to Accademia Bridge and Vaporetto stop. Highly recommend. For a great hotel in Venice this is a great value.

The hotel was lovely! It is located in a quiet area away from the maddening touristy crowds of San Marco and close to the Academia vaporetto stop. The hotel is clean and spacious with a friendly and helpful staff. We would definitely stay here again!

I'd read good reviews about this place but was amazed when we arrived, I never imagined it would be so fantastic. The room and bathroom were much larger than I expected and decorated in a Venetian style but still modern. The view from our balcony was the one I'd seen on the website and the one I'd wished for. I... More

May 2015 for 2 nights. Quite elegant location in the new section if you want quiet and don't want the canal noise in mornings and nights. On a quiet canal during nights anyway. Very convenient and centrally located. Room was very clean, well appointed with modern amenities, exceptionally spacious, and service was excellent. I would stay again on a return... More

We went thru a site to find a place in Venice and found what was delivered was less than promised - all at about 12:00 midnight. Another hotel pointed us to the American Dinesen. They not only provided us with all the hospitality and warmth one could imagine but provided great value, service and care. Honest, dependable staff with an... More

Great stay! Hotel have recently been remodel...very comfortable stay. For Venice during tourist season, it was very reasonably priced. We elected to walk from the train station an the entire trip took 25 minutes. It wasn't too difficult. Would have given the hotel a five stars but the wi fi was intermittent from our room. However, the staff was working... More

We have now stayed at this "hidden gem" twice while in Venice. The rooms are sparkling, service impeccable and the location can't be beat. It is not on a noisy canal and the staff speak articulate English. Our most recent trip was a group of 7 booking 4 rooms. Upon arrival from Bologna, I realized I had mistaken the days... More

I booked Hotel American Dinesen for the last leg of our trip to Italy in July for 3 nights. Frankly, I had inquired with a few other hotels first because I was not sure Dorsoduro would be the best place stay and this hotel seemed a bit far from where we wanted to be. However, I booked here anyway- it... 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.
