We stayed for 5 nights in one of the Hotel American-Dinesen Dependance apartments. These are on a room only basis. The 3 Dependence apartments have their own separate entrance that is down a small alley to the right of the hotel. Two of the apartments are on the ground level and there is one up a flight of stairs. (That's...

We booked this hotel on-line because it located on a canal and was able to accommodate four us in one room. We didn't quite know how to get to the hotel, and Marcos at the front desk was most helpful in helping us get to a parking garage and explaining how to take the water taxi to the hotel. Once...

We have just returned from spending 3 nights in Venice and stayed at this wonderful hotel. It has a fabulous location - 5 minutes from the Academia, 5 minutes from the Guggenheim - 5 minutes from the Vaparetto stop. We found it easy to find. It is in a quiet district which was extremely appealing to us, away from the...

Our stay at the American-Dinesen was wonderful. The hotel is located in a quieter area of Venice, but within easy walking distance to all the major attractions. It was HOT when we visited and really enjoyed the cold air conditioned room. At night it was quiet, cool, and we slept soundly. The breakfast offered was your typical european style and...

Hotel American Dinesen was a very clean, quiet hotel with a very good and helpful staff. The location was hard to find the first time, but after we got our bearings, it was easier. (It is actually pretty near the Academia ferry stop). There was free internet and free breakfast which was plentiful and tasty. The hotel was nice and...

We recently returned to the Hotel American having stayed there last year. My daughter and her partner discovered it the year before and recommended it to us. We had a double superior canal view room and it was beautifully furnished and very clean. Worth the extra for the view of the San Vio canal. The staff are all very friendly...

We found this hotel through TripAdvisor and found it lived up to our expectations. It was very well located out of the tourist area but within 5 minutes walk of the Acedemia bridge and Vaperetto stop. We stayed in Apartment 1 for a week so can't comment on the hotel rooms, breakfast or other hotel facilities. But the apartment was...

We spent three glorious days in Venice, and the Hotel American Dinesen was a wonderful home base for us. It was located on a smaller, quieter canal, which made for a more restful experience. We were very glad we opted for the balcony with the canal view as it provided a pleasant, scenic experience. The room was clean and perfect...

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
