Our 4 night stay at Hotel American Dinesen in Dorsoduro met all our expectations.Staff were friendly and very helpful,room overlooking canal (room102)was very pleasant and well worth the very reasonable price.Bathroom was well designed and had brand new fixtures, all in excellent working order.Bed linens and towels were changed every day,although they don't need to be.Breakfasts were more than adequate with great selection of bread,fruit,pastries and tarts,yoghurts cheeses and juices.Good coffee.
Staff available to carry bags up hotel and nearby bridge stairs.Easy walk with baggage to and from Accademia and Zattere boat stops
By early Dec,the waters had receded,so there no problems getting around.The hotel is ideally located for easy access to the Guggenheim and Accademia museums. Best of all,very few tourists on this side of the canal,streets quiet at night.Suggest eating at Taverno san Travaso just west of the Accademia and visiting all the tasteful,small shops in the area and Gelateria Nico on Zattere
My only concern- carpeting is a little threadbare and should be replaced over time.
