We were looking forward to our first trip to Venice, and this hotel ticked all the boxes and more - we were not disappointed. It is in a quiet location in Dorsoduro near Accademia Bridge, yet within easy walking distance of all of Venice's main...More
We visited Venice to celebrate my birthday, but left booking a hotel until the last minute and most were full. But Expedia had a special offer on the American Dinesen and although we would be yet another boring and uncaring tourist hotel we thought we'd...More

We booked the American Dinesen at the beginning of August, one of the busiest weeks in Venice, after an extensive search of hotels on Trip Advisor. The reviews helped a lot and it was the best choice we could have made. It totally lived up...More
The American Hotel was perfect. Perfectly easy to get to from the Alilaguna Blue Line. Perfectly situated on Canal S. Vio. And it looked perfectly, exactly like the photos on the website. Breakfast was wonderful, rooms were immaculate, location is amazing. Walk towards the Canal...More
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.

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.

As others before me have stated there are no cars in Venice. See Tricia H's response for excellent car parking arrangements. The hotel does have a private water taxi dock. The nearest Vaperetto (Venice's version of a public bus) is at the Academia Bridge. Then you will have to walk past the Academia turn left for about a block, cross over a foot bridge, turn right and the hotel is just beyond a cafe. Ciao!
