My husband and I have been visiting Venice for a number of years and are so please we discovered the Hotel American Dinesen. Ideally placed for the Accademia bridged and its vaporetto stop to explore much of venice on foot or by ferry, and in the other direction the Zattere and Giudecca . The staff are welcoming and helpful, the rooms well cared for and typically Venetian. The hotel serves a good contiental breakfast. The Dorsoduro is both open and quite. We are regular visitors to Venice and always happy to return to this hotel.
