I was really apprehensive visiting this hotel as the reviews I read beforehand were enough to terrify me. That said I thought it was perfect. The location is great, really close to Accademia Bridge and between two vaporetto stops if you want to travel this way from the train station or even around Venice. It is worth noting that you...

Firstly, it doesn't look anything like a hostel/hotel from the outside (not even named on the wall) so we went to a nearby hotel (belle arti) and were informed we check in there. The host was rude when she informed us that it states on our booking that we check in at that hotel (she was correct, it was explained... More

We stayed at the Domus Cavanis as I had a work trip to the Biennale, and my husband and 19 month old toddler came along. We had read the reviews on Tripadvisor and were nervous about staying at the hotel, but were pleasantly surprised. We found the other reviews on this site really helpful in setting our expectations - we... More

The location of the hostel is good, near to the center and close to many attractions, easy reachable by foot or boat from train station. The room was nice, newly furnished and clean. However: - the hotel is unmanned, check-in is at a nearby hotel. There is none to ask info, a bar where to get a bottle of water.... More

Yes the hotel is effectively "un-manned" and need to check-in in the Belli Arti - worth knowing if you arrive late and forget! Being unmanned (and quiet in October) it felt a little bit abandoned and lacked atmosphere as a result. If all you want is a bed and place for your bags while you stay in Venice then this... More

We made a reservation for 4 nights on September 5, for September 26 - 28. On September 21, 16 days after our booking and 5 days before arrival, we suddenly received a message that the reservation was cancelled. Turn out that the credit card validity was miss typed by 1 digit. We sent the correct data immediately, but the room... More

The staff at the BelleArti (which is who you are dealing with as there are no staff members for the Domus Cavanis) were incredibly rude, and in general disinterested in their jobs. We arrived and found our room to be incredibly hot and uncomfortable, despite being told all rooms were air conditioned. We were told a maintenance man would be... 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.
