We loved the Hotel American Denisen. We highly recommend it.
We arrived by water taxi to the hotels private dock. The concierge and porter were outside waiting by the dock to give us a wonderful welcome. Our first impressions were excellent. The porter (who was wonderful through our entire stay there) was there to assist us with our luggage. He didn't speak English, but came into the room and showed us the electric shutters/blinds. And all with a friendly smile.
We had a canal side room on the 2nd floor - we loved it. The little balcony was a perfect place to soak up a little sun and read. The room was beautiful and felt very homey. The bathroom was immaculate. Beds were a bit too hard for our taste, though. Since it was a bit warm, we slept with the balcony door ajar and could hear church bells ringing in the distance - a great way to wake up.
The desk staff/ concierge were friendly and helpful at all times, even just coming and going - always asked us how the day was and if we were enjoying Venice. Recommended a great place for dinner on our last night.
The hotel is in a beautiful area, much to see in Dorsoduro. We loved the area. We spent lots of time strolling on the Zattere. Very accessible to San Marco - an easy walk, in fact.
Breakfast in the hotel was my favorite in Italy (we stayed in a few other cities that were definitely not as good for breakfast). It was relaxed and quiet, coffee was amazing! The breakfast room wasn't at all crowded, nothing was rushed. Food was very well presented and delicious.
Very much enjoyed the decor of the hotel, as well. Nicely done in Venetian style. The facility seemed to be very well cared for.
Our stay at the American was by far the most relaxing and enjoyable during our time in Italy.
