The Hotel American is a charming small hotel in Dorsoduro, not far from the Accademia stop for the Vaporetti. Very quiet rooms. My only complaint is that the rooms are not very large and the bathrooms are tiny. As my wife said, you could easily brush your teeth and wash your face while sitting on the toilet. The staff is...

It is perhaps silly to mention this on a website dedicated to hotels, but of the more than 30 million people visiting Venice every year, only a very small minority stays in Venice for the night, something like 12 percent or so, I seem to remember. Which means that of the very many people you will meet there, most will... More

We came for the second time to this lovely hotel in the Dorsoduro district in Venice. As in the first time we enjoyed the location only a few steps behind the Accademia bridge. We are looking forward to our next visit. Of course in the 'American Dinesen'.

After a nice welcome from the very friendly staff we were taken to our room. Everything was shortly explained and showen. The location is as good as it gets, it is less then 15 minutes by foot to the San Marco square (tip: take line 2 by bus boat to 'Accademia', the stop right before 'San Marco'). Extra wishes are...

I researched so many hotels in Venice and finally decided on this hotel. I wasn't sure I made the right choice until we arrived. It was an absolute dream. Rooms are a good size for Venice, and I love the location. It is located on a quite street and yet a quick walk to all the sites. I'm so glad... More

This was our 4th stay at the American Dinesen and it was as good as ever. The hotel is in a perfect place close to the Accademia bridge and water stop, the Guggenheim museum and Accademia Gallery. It is close to the Zattere water stop for the Alilaguna link from the airport. If you are taking the water taxi from... More

We stayed a week ago at the Hotel American Dinesen. I was so glad I splurged with a canal view room. There was a lovely side walk cafe and gondoliers right below our window. We enjoyed a bottle of wine on our balcony while watching the Venice scenery. The hotel is in a perfect location. It's quiet, but still full... More

The hotel has a traditional atmosphere, with interesting decoration but featuring nice refurbished toilets. It's located in a calm neighborhood, close to the Academia and Peggy Guggenheim Collection and walking distance to St Marcus Square.

We had one night in Venice and we wanted to be in the heart of the city. American Dinesen was found just right. Spotless room with some nice details in the bathroom, attentive service, WiFi and Oh yes - air condition! An hour of refreshment in the room, after a hot afternoon walking revived us, and we could go back... More
