This was my first visit to Venice and my husband and I spent 5 nights at the Hotel American Dinesen from April 10th to 15th. I chose the hotel having read reviews on Tripadvisor and was not at all disappointed. Our room (202) overlooked a canal and was delightful, clean and comfortable with an excellent bathroom. The housekeeping staff were... More

The dorsoduro location was great for exploring the city but still having a quiet spot to relax. The hotel is basically in between the Zattere and Accademia vaperetto stops so it is easy to get around Venice. It is just off the main route in between Accademia and the Guggenheim. The rooms are cozy sized, but comfortable and clean. The... More

The location was pretty good. It was on one of the little canals and did have access to a water taxi. (about 30 min to airport and costs about $110) There is no elevator, but that didn't bother us, if you aren't able to go up stairs, then Venice is not for you! The front desk people were nice and...

We spent 3 nights at the end of March 2014 at this lovely hotel. Don’t be put off by the odd name for this wonderful hotel located on a quiet calle just off the Grand Canal. It is a 5 min walk from the Accademia Vaporetto stop and luggage-manageable with a little energy. It’s a 30 min vaporetto ride from... More

We stayed at the American Dinesen for five nights in March and had a wonderful stay in Venice. We booked a superior room with a view, directly with the hotel. Our corner room on the second floor had views on two sides over the San Vio Canal and down to the Grand Canal which was a wonderful sight to wake... More

They really over do the air freshener and it all but choked me. We checked in on the late afternoon of the 24th and the front desk guy was surly and seemed annoyed however the bellman (Mario??) was very nice and helpful. We where hungry after traveling for 17 hours, so we asked the hotel where we could get a... More

Sitting on the balcony we waved at friends in London watching us on the webcam (see their website for the link.) They were jealous - and rightly so! We paid the extra for a canal view (room 210) and it was well worth it. It overlooks a little canal which joins the Grand canal which you can also see, and... More

Pros: - Clean, classically furnished room (equipped with a Venetian glass chandelier). - The bedding is firm, but very comfortable. - Some might find the rooms small, as was our first impression upon opening the door. That impression quickly disappeared and we found the room practical with plenty of closet space. - Public areas of the hotel are warm and... More

My wife and I have just stayed for 3 nights at The American and loved it! It is situated on a lovely canal side in Accademia and is very central for all of the lovely art shops, restaurants and bars in the area and a 2 minute walk to the bridge and to the water bus stop. We stayed in... More
