Superior four star Hotel in Dorsoduro, the "Art District" of Venice. The hotel is located between the Acadamy of Fine Arts (Accademia di Belle Arti) and the "Peggy Guggenhiem Collection".The House lies in front of San Vio Canal, with his private dock for taxi and gondolas. Highly requested are the superior canal view rooms with balcony, where customers can enjoy a nice view of San Vio Canal and (some of them)a partial view of the Grand Canal. Free wifi internet access in the room and also public areas.

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.

The hotel is very nicely located on a side canal in Dorsoduro near Accademia and good vaporetto connections. Staff are beyond helpful and accommodating, and rooms and common areas are nicely appointed in a mix of modern and traditional styles. Really appreciated late checkout

Stayed here in April 2019 for two nights with our two sons. We were upgraded to a room in the adjacent building with a loft bedroom which was perfect for our family. Not far from any of the major attractions but located on a quiet street. Front desk gave us excellent

A perfectly located, high quality hotel on small canal in quiet area. Good customer service Would definitely return. The only reason I put “Average “in the Value section is that Venice hotels are expensive. Despite that we chose the Superior room with canal view which I would
