Construction was still underway during our visit so there was some construction noise/debris to get through each day and no breakfast facility however the next lobby looks like it will be very nice once completed. The location while a little out of the way was perfect for us since it was less congested with crowds of people. The room was... More

I loved my stay at this hotel. It is in a perfect location in that it is convenient to walk everywhere, but was away from the tourist crowds. The staff was wonderful and helpful. I can't wait to go back.

I am glad we choose this hotel. Its located very near to San Marco Square (around 10 to 15 blocks walking distance), if you go to this Hotel for just a few days you don't need to purchase a several days transport ticket if you wont travel too much with the boats, because its very well located. The hotel is... More

We stayed with my husband in this hotel for two nights. We booked a room with canal view, which also had a little balcony. It was our first time in Venice, and we were not sure what to expect. Our room was located on the annex of the hotel, not on the main building. The ground floor of this annex... More

We loved this small Venetian hotel in the Dorsoduro area/district! We arrived late at night (flight delayed from Paris!) by water taxi (a bit of luxury) - the speedboat pulled up right outside the hotel. It was our 'James Bond' experience entering Venice by water taxi at night... speeding from the airport across the open water then along the Grand... More

I went there with my boyfriend for our anniversary last December and we were really satisfied with our choice. The location is nice and so are the rooms and the employees. Perfect for young couples, I really loved the modern style with contemporary art.

The Hotel American is situated in Academia which is a quiet yet central part of Venice. Easy walking to St Marks and many other sites and attractions. Both the main hotel and the Residence next door is of a high standard. The staff are wonderful and helpful. I had a very good breakfast at the hotel which prepared me for... More

I have stayed here twice, once in the hotel, and once in one of the apartments. Highly recommend both. Excellent home base. Great neighborhood with lots of restaurants, close to the attractions, yet a quieter, more private area. The two bedroom apartment was perfect for a family and so nice to have a kitchen and washer/dryer. Helpful staff. Will be... More

I previously reviewed this hotel after our stay in October 2011. After our recent visit in October 2014, I am again giving it 5 stars. To summarize, the hotel is well located, in a quiet area near the main attractions, but not in the middle of everything. Room sizes are generous and air conditioning excellent. Bathrooms are quite nice and... More

We stayed three nights here on our first trip to Venice in September. Not knowing the city when booking, we opted for something with a convenient location in a quiet area. It is both of these, as others verify. We threw some extra dollars at a "canal view" room with front and corner windows. Being able to watch real canal... More
