This is a well located wonderful hotel if you would prefer to stay far away from the maddening crowd. It is in Dorsoduro, the quiet part of Venice, along a quiet canal with shops and restaurants just around the corner and the Accademia bridge and vaporetto stop just 2 minutes away. We had a triple room which was beautifully appointed.... More

This was by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Not to mention how much my husband and I fell in love with Venice but the hotel just had the perfect amount of everything we were looking for. The room was a decent size as was the bathroom, the breakfast was great, it was super clean... More

Venice was our first stop in our "tour of Italy" last month (6/2014). We chose this hotel based on Fodor's guidebook recommendation, as well as the other trip advisor reviews. We were very pleased with our choice because we found the hotel very charming, the staff very helpful, the room very clean, and a great (although tiny) balcony right on... More

My family of 4 stayed at the Hotel American Dinesen during a short stay in Venice. All prior reviews say it all. Located on the other side of the Grand Canal, the Dorsoduro, and about 3 minute walk to the Accademia Bridge and 15 mins from St Marks Sq. Very quiet and quaint. Close enough to get anywhere (Venice is... More

Booked here for two nights in venice. Stayed in the annex portion of the hotel and it was very nice, clean and had a beautiful patio to relax in. The customer service was great and it was close to many attractions but also on a quiet portion of the canal. I would go back to this hotel the next time... More

This is our go to hotel in Venice. We have never been disappointed on any stay. This small boutique hotel has a great staff and well appointed rooms. The hotel is situated on a canal in the Dorsoduro neighborhood. The best thing you are away from all the crowds, but close enough to the sights. We love the Dorsoduro. It... More

Just completed 3 nights in Venice as part of an extended trip and enjoyed our stay here. The room was good sized (109) and had a balcony with view over the canal. Location was excellent for us, on a quiet canal and just around the corner from the Accademia and the Guggenheim is nearby. Short walk over the bridge to... More

Everything about this hotel is good. Great location - quiet but convenient; friendly and welcoming staff; rooms spacious (rare in Venice) and well decorated; free wifi. Searching for something to balance the good things the only thing I could find was a slightly annoying step up into the en suite bathroom. Also as everyone knows Venice is horrendously expensive, but... More

The staff and hotel room made our stay in Venice very pleasant. The room was clean and the bed was large. The staff was helpful and arranged for transportation to the airport to catch our early flight. It is located in the Dorsoduro area of the island which is quiet, has good restaurants, and is still an easy walk to... More

We had a few lovely days in this charming hotel at the end of May. The position was excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and well maintained and the breakfasts were very good. It was lovely having a balcony overlooking a canal. We would have no hesitation in returning
