Really really good. Attitude of all staff helpful and friendly at all times. Room nice and clean. Great location. Happy family. The district is quieter then San Marco area. Makes you feel you can escape - but only a short walk. Highly recommend. Lovely with children.

I absolutely had a great experience at this hotel. So much so, that I plan to book again next year. You will experience all the "Venice surroundings" but whats nice is it's away from all the tourist noise and traffic. You can be in your room and hear the soft church bells ring nearby. Everything you need is so close... More

Ideal position for sightseeing close to two water taxi stations. The hotel has its own dock so if you arrive by air to Venice pay for a private taxi transfer to hotel it gives you a fantastic start to your break and well worth the 90 euro if paid in advance. Hotel is clean and good choice at breakfast. Rooms... More

Clean, modern comfortable hotel locatef in a beautiful old palazzo on a quiet canal in the Dorsoduro neighborhood of Venice. Easy walking distance to Academia vaporetto stop and most of the important sights of this magical city. Breakfasts were excellent and the front desk staff very nice. Highly recommended

Hotel American Dinesen is a lovely hotel on a beautiful canal located close to major museums and a short walk to other sites. They accommodated our family of four comfortably in an immaculately clean, beautiful room. We hope to visit again soon.

This hotel was fairly central to seeing the sights in Venice. Our room overlooked the canal and the view was amazing. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was fine. Wifi was good. Great restaurant next door. Would stay in this hotel again.

We were lucky enough to have a room with a balcony overlooking the canal. The view was breath taking. The room had very ornate and traditional décor which we were looking for. We were apprehensive as this hotel is only stated as 3 stars - but for the life of us we can't understand why! It was fantastic, the staff... More

nice location which depends on what you look for: calm neighberhood close to 2 vaporetto stations (Academia, Zatterre) but far from the hussle of St Mark Square or Rialto market. Very helpful staff, the night guy even closed down the hotel for a minute and came for us 300 meters out to show us the way to the hotel and... More

Take a superior room with channel view and relaxe in the morning sun on the small balcony: this is Venice at its best! You find excellent retaurants a few footsteps away at Zattere, the Accademia and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum around the corner and the Vaporetto nearby to discover the town. Since 2003 we stayed in this hotel several times... More

Venice is one of the most amazing places in the world. The food is amazing, and sights are incredible, and as such, Hotel American Dinesen is a great place to stay. It is central to everything and the staff is very friendly. They helped get us a restaurant reservation the night we got there, and the food was exquisite. I... 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.
