Great location, very short distance 5 minute walk from Academies on Grand Canal or Zettere on blue line. Zettere is also Airport Run on Blue line. Room was well appointed with a King Bed and my room 109 had a Canal view. Bathroom was spacious with a nice restaurant adjacent to hotel and breakfast served next to lobby included in... More

The hotel does not look very attractive outside, but once you step in you feel the difference. The hotel has been totally renewed. Service at the reception is very friendly. The space of the room was a little pit limited, but who will spend time in the hotel in the Venice. There is no reason to go long for dinner,... More

For a three star hotel this place has been excellent! Located close to vaporetto stops, restaurants, cultural opportunities and shops it is perfectly located. We found the room excellent, right on the canal, clean and well appointed. Very comfy beds! The staff were helpful and the included breakfast more than adequate.

Hotel has gone through a recent renovation. We had a room with a loft bedroom that faced the front of the hotel. We were pleased with all aspects of the room and the price was competitive for Venice. The location was convenient as well.

Just got back from a 5 day break at the Hotel American Dinesen with my partner. Our first time in Venice so was relying on other tripadvisor reviews before booking. We were not disappointed. The hotel is very picturesque, set on a side canal so you can have the views without the noise and very central for the major attractions.... More

I'll be honest, I think I lucked out with my stay at the Hotel American-Dinesen. I booked fairly late, and for two weekday nights, and I ended up with a terrific rate for a very spacious room in the adjacent building -- a sitting room with a large, comfortable couch, and a loft bedroom up a flight of stairs. It's... More

Like so many of the reviews already written for this great little hotel we found it perfect for our 2 nights in Venice. Location is great, quiet and away from noisy main centres but an enjoyable walk to everything. We loved the fact that we looked over the canal and a tiny bridge, this may be a cliche but after...

We stayed here in March 2015. This was our second time here, previously in 2004. The hotel has changed quite a bit since we were there 11 years ago. In 2004 the room we stayed in had typical venetian fabric on the walls and bed. This time, we had a superior canal view room and everything had been "modernized" The... More

Had a very nice superior room with canal view which was great. Although the canal outside was small it was really good to see and hear all the many boats going about their business. The hotel is very nicely furnished throughout with a good buffet breakfast and close to the Grand Canal and all the central attractions. The staff were... More

Very pleasant stay in Dorsoduro, 2 minute walk from the Accademia vaporetto and bridge over the grand canal but far enough to be very quiet. We had two rooms which they were kind enough to book adjacent to each other without our asking. This is typical of the hotel and Elisabetta on reception in particular who was patient, helpful and...

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.
