This is my second time here in 4 months and I LOVE it. The location is great as it is not a far walk to the Rialto, San Marco and much more, yet it is still in a quiet part of Venice. The staff are lovely and friendly and the rooms are simple and very clean. This property is a... More

We had a conference in this centre and I found it an acceptable location. The building is amazing, an old convent refurbished to be confirmed as place of peace in Venice. Prices are affordable but some may not like its religious attitude. The place do have a accept-all policies but crosses are everywhere as well as sculptures of the Virgin... More

Stayed here as part of a cultural trip with a group and found the place quiet, convenient and welcoming. It's a no-frills place but by no means austere. The staff were pleasant and friendly and my room was comfortable and very clean as well as spacious and the free wi-fi was a bonus. The bed was a bit hard and... More

My husband and I wanted a different experience than staying in a hotel and Don Orione was such a pleasant surprise of a stay for us. This place was the most wonderful, quiet escape you could ask for in busy July! We only stayed for two nights as we had a cruise to catch. One night, we stopped at the... More

This was my first time at this hotel and first time in Venice. I spent 2 weeks here. I needed help from the staff from the beginning - left my carry-on bag on the water bus in my excitement to stand up and view the Zattere waterfront on my arrival. The receptionist immediately called the water bus operator and they... More

That's my second time on this hotel with my family. It's not a fancy place but service is very professional, rooms are clean, space generous and well cleaned. Close to the most important place in Venice with two vaporeti stations. There is no TV in the rooms, by the way, what is a TV in Venice? But wifi is excellent.... More

We are staying in a variety of accommodation in Europe and thought we would include a Monastry as something unique to experience. What a gem this is. Perfectly located to two water bus stops, close to Rialto and St Marks Square and steps away from all the action. Built in the 19th centuary, the facade remains, but the interior is... More

I spent just over a week at the Centro Culturale and enjoyed it very much. The staff are exceptional - warm and welcoming and very helpful. I loved my little room and had a very sound sleep on the comfortable bed. Loved the views from the large windows. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or highly recommend it to... More

I loved the room I had with two windows looking in different directions. Everything was spotless and beautifully done. Some information says the place is basic. With free Wi-fi, cosy sheets and fresh towels as well as a safe and all bathroom amenities, I would not call this basic. Only slight niggle is that the drinks at breakfast are all... More

Late review - but I stayed here for about 5 weeks. The rooms are simple but very clean and and comfortable. Very quiet and peaceful and everyone who works there was always very friendly. Though it is a monastery, there is no overtly religious vibe or anything - so don't be put off if you do not consider yourself religious.... 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.
