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

A lovely treasure of a hotel nestled along a quiet canal in Venice. Very clean rooms with Antique furniture and great helpful staff. Buffet breakfast in a quaint breakfast room. Highly recommended for families, couples and singles alike.

We enjoyed staying here back in September and I could not have been happier with the location. It was right on the canal and we had a tiny balcony that we could sit out and enjoy the view at night. It was within walking distance to everything and a very easy walk from the ferry. The staff was helpful and... More

I couldn't believe that we got such a good hotel in Venice paying less than 100 euros per night. Helpful staff, clean and decent rooms, great breakfast, internet connection quite good, walking distance to Punta de la Dogana, Peggy Guggenheim, San Marco and main stores. Recommend for everyone who plan to visit Venice. Alex

Our family stayed here for two nights in October and it was perfect. We are arrived after a very long , delayed train from Austria only to be greeted by the sweetest lab. My tired daughter instantly cheered up as she petted Pablo. The room was a very good size for three people (queen bed and single bed), decorated in... More

We stayed here several years ago and liked all about it. Very good location, outstanding canal view and beautiful, large room. (Ask for the room Rick Steves recommends, which provides a view of all that is going on on the canal, as well as being a good room.) You can reach anywhere in Venice rapidly from here.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel American Dinesen. The rooms were very clean and comfortable...although a bit dated. The staff was extremely helpful and pointed us to great locations and restaurants. They also arranged our water taxi from the airport, which delivered us directly in front of the hotel. The hotel is situated in a lovely, quiet neighborhood, which was... More

First, they will beat any price you find online. I had booked through Orbitz (in what turns out was a price lower than they were supposed to offer) and Alberto at Hotel American still beat it. The hotel has its own dock, which is extremely convenient. Venice is all about walking and you don’t want to drag your luggage through... More
