Stayed for two nights earlier this month with my husband and another couple. We chose this hotel because of the location, just across the canal bridge from Piazzale Roma which is the last point at which cars can go and within walking distance of the train station. Got a transfer from airport at a very reasonable 45 euro fare. Just...

The hotel let us store a bag while we went on a week-long cruise. After our return, we spent a long day walking around Venice. A few glasses of Prosecco and a pizza were just what we needed and the Hotel Olympia met the need. The room was comfortable and breakfast was delicious.

Initially we booked at a hotel just outside Venice next to Mestre station to save money. Big mistake!! We discovered this hotel right near the train station in Venice and the lowest cost room (Rosa room) was only $25 more per night then the hotel near Mestre but it was far, far better and had a fantastic location. We had...

Walking distance from the train station and the people mover. Short walk to the vapporetti boats. The hotel is on a canal but our room had a courtyard view which was nice and quiet. The hotel does have a bar and places to sit along the canal or you can sit in the courtyard. The room was good size and...

First time at Hotel Olympia but definitely not the last! Great location with good access to main bus/train station.

The best: Breakfast to die for. Definitely spring for the 5 Eu buffet! By far the most expansive and delicious breakfasts we enjoyed anywhere during our two-week trip. Will never forget that lemon cake! Next best: Hotel cleanliness and amenities. We were upgraded to the top-floor junior suite. Spotless, spacious and quiet. Nicely furnished.

Well situated to many sights and away from the crowded, touristy hotels and their crowds. Excellent hotel staff who had great recommendations for eating and sight-seeing paths. Full breakfast for 5 euros, a great value. If you have lots of big bags, you may need to hire a porter to get them over the canal bridges. WE arrived by train...

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

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.
