We booked two nights before and two nights after a cruise, we couldn't have chosen better. Lovely hotel, great location, absolutely spotless and such wonderful, friendly staff. A great place to stay. The little garden area is a total bonus and perfect to linger over breakfast. I'll be back.

We sifted from one hotel to this one after poor service. The lady at the front desk (I think her name was Selena) was extremely helpful, she spoke perfect English and helped us find a room. The rooms were clean, well set out and had a comfortable bed. This hotel is close to the bus station an a short walk... More

We stayed here for 2 nights before our cruise. This hotel is so cute, loved the decor, loved the employees. Everyone was so friendly and helpful! Our air conditioning was not working the first night there. I notified the front desk who immediately had someone to repair it, but unfortunately didn't work again after a few hours. They were out...

This hotel was clean and quite. The staff was friendly, helpful and spoke English quite well. The breakfast was good and a relative bargain for only 5 Euros. The only downsides were that it was fairly expensive and the room was very small. It would be ideal for a single traveler.

Leave the station and bear right which will bring you to the Ponte de la Republica. The designer of this bridge decided to light it by lights in the speps which themselves and... More

I'm super picky about hotels and their cleanliness, so just making note of that. We stayed here to be close to the People Mover as we were leaving on a cruise the following day, and also didn't want to spend a ton of money on pricier hotels. I chose this one based on reviews, location, and the fact that it... More

My friends and I stayed at the hotel while on a European vacation and it was an amazing experience. The location made it easy to navigate around Venice. The hotel is clean, beautiful and comfortable and the best part was the welcoming staff! The staff was patient, kind and incredibly helpful. Robert in particular was absolutely lovely, helpful, accommodating and... 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.
