Really nice clean hotel with great staff, very polite and eager to help. We stayed two nights across carnival 5-7 Feb in. Superior double roon at front of hotel with double balcony. Very modern room with nice features, cable tv, safe,minibar etc. Although the stay cost us €300 a night compared to most its worth it. Highly recommended.

What a wonderful find, just far away enough to be peaceful quiet and tranquil when needed and five minutes across two canals and two bridges back into the hustle and bustle of Venice. The Hotel staff couldn't be more friendly or do enough for you. The room is on bed and breakfast basis as no dinner offered. Breakfast is very... More

The Hotel American was the best choice for our first visit to Venice. It is clean and the staff was so friendly and genuinely helpful. They were so gracious when we made several special requests. The included breakfast was very generous. We had a room with a small balcony on a canal which was fun to watch the boats delivering... More

The hotel is situated in a lovely location on a small canal close to the Academia bridge and the Guggenheim museum. Access to other parts of Venice is easy via the nearby water bus stop at Academia. The local area is full of restaurants and cafes. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the room had all the relevant facilities. The... More

This is a hidden gem in Venice. The hotel has recently been renovated. While the rooms are small, they certainly have been totally renovated from the top to bottom. Very functional, nice bathrooms and good air-conditioning. The hotel has a nice, all be-it small breakfast buffet. Everything is of top quality and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Speaking... More

An excellent secluded hotel in Venice, off the beaten track of the tourist masses, but only minutes from the centre. I have just spent another Christmas - New Year in this hotel, and once again 100 % satisfaction, ready to return again. This small hotel facing the Rio de San Vio canal, just off the Grand Canal and round the... More

We had heard about this hotel from a friend that had visited Venice Summer of 2013. We decided to book the same hotel since they had wonderful things to say about it. We booked a room to fit 2 adults and 2 kids. We walked into our room and were shocked at how large our room was. It has two... 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.
