We stayed for 2 nights in April 2015 and loved this hotel. The location was excellent, close to the Grand Canal and next to a smaller canal. It was an easy walk to St. Mark's Square. The staff was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and places for us to visit. I would highly recommend this hotel

We absolutely loved this hotel from the moment we walked in. Decor was fantastic, front desk was so nice. Morning breakfast was good. Could not have picked a better place to stay. It seems as though they have recently renovated and they have done an outstanding job.

Very nice stay here in early April 2015. Room was clean and the assistance from the hotel staff was great. Convenient location. We were warmly welcomed, bags taken to room and specifics of room clearly explained. They kindly held our bags after we checked out to allow for us to explore the city more. Staff also gave good suggestions and... More

We took a water taxi and got down in accedemia stop. Its near the waters and can get lateral view of grand canal. Staff were warm and very nice. We got our room in an adjacent building and loved it.

It's difficult to add anything to the favourable reviews below. The location is perfect - close to main sights, but out of the way of the tourist hordes. Also close to useful vaporetto stops and the Alilaguna service to the airport (though that does take 100 minutes). And there are good places to eat nearby (e.g. Locanda Montin, Agli Alboretti)....

I stayed there leading a group but I think my comments will still be good for couples or singles. They were just coming to the end of a refurbishment and despite struggling with the inevitable overruns provided immaculate service. The hotel feels smart and modern without losing individuality. The hotel staff were unfailingly friendly, helpful and efficient. I saw this... More

The hotel is modern, conveniently located within5 to 10min walking distance of the main sites such as the St Mark's Square, museums and amazing art galleries. The staff are warm, friendly, helpful. The ongoing renovations are a slight nuisance but one can live with them. There's a great restaurant 2 doors down the street but the staff can recommend others... More

Construction was still underway during our visit so there was some construction noise/debris to get through each day and no breakfast facility however the next lobby looks like it will be very nice once completed. The location while a little out of the way was perfect for us since it was less congested with crowds of people. The room was... More

I loved my stay at this hotel. It is in a perfect location in that it is convenient to walk everywhere, but was away from the tourist crowds. The staff was wonderful and helpful. I can't wait to go back.

I am glad we choose this hotel. Its located very near to San Marco Square (around 10 to 15 blocks walking distance), if you go to this Hotel for just a few days you don't need to purchase a several days transport ticket if you wont travel too much with the boats, because its very well located. The hotel is... 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.
