Stayed at hotel Pausania for a couple of nights. Great hotel, staff friendly and helpful. Free breakfast which is continental but it's good, staff are efficient and it fills you up until lunch. Room was warm, interior decor is amazing. Quaint little hotel in a fab position. I would stay here again if returned to Venice.

Very atmospheric hotel, maintaining the charm of an old palazzo, in a quiet but perfect location. Our room was spacious with wooden beams and interesting views across the rooftops, the staff were very helpful and friendly, the breakfast buffet was very good, and we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The hotel is within easy walk of the Rialto, Accademia...

Stayed here for 3 nights over new years eve. The area of the hotel is perfect for couples- it feels far less touristy that the main areas, with fantastic restaurants and bars right on the doorstep, in particular some fabulous wine bars and chichetti (spelling?!) bars. Its a short walk- maybe 10-15 mins to the main sights. The restaurant looks...

My daughter and I saw the New Year in , in Venice, we booked into the Pausania for 4 nights. Our room was located on the first floor, accessed via the charming stone staircase. We stayed in room number 203 (I think) which was warm, clean and comfortable. The bed was made up for us each morning. We must have...

We stayed here for along weekend, and the hotel was lovely and very friendly. The room was clean and had the amenities. The location of the hotel was great for us and we loved the little cafe at the end of the street.

The room was great, very comfy bed and very clean rooms. Breakfast was very good, great selection and all of the staff were friendly and incredibly helpful.The hotel is a little bit out of the main town of Venice, but is situated in a very quiet area which was absolutely perfect for us.

Unfortunately, this hotel has gone downhill. The staff and especially the manager were extremely rude to us and they raised the price on us by 100% after we made the reservation. We will no longer stay here when in Venice.

Was very satisfied with this hotel when my wife and I visited Venice for a 3 night stay. After flying into Venice airport, we took the Orange Line on the Boat Taxi (bought tickets inside the airport baggage area) to the Ca'Rezzonico stop (the seventh stop). From there it was less than a 5 minute walk to the hotel. Quiet...

Myself and my wife stayed at the Pausania for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The breakfast is simple but enough of what you need. Staff are very helpful.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This palace was a rich and magnificent residence of an aristocratic Venetian family, now it is an elegant and refined 3 stars Hotel, completely restored. The Hotel enjoys of an interesting position, preferred by the intellectuals and artists, searching for quiet and inspiration. Inside the Hotel, at the entrance, there is a stoned staircase that goes from the lobby to the second floor, once called "piano nobile", where there are some rooms. The intelligent restoration has effected a correct and balanced compromise between aesthetical demands and the non-renounced functional requirements, essential an hotel that wants to keep step with the times. The rooms, in typical Venetian style,are furnished with elegance and good taste, with all comforts (private bathroom with bathtub, hairdryer, cable TV, direct dial telephone, mini-bar, air-conditioned, coffee and thea machine). Our clients can also enjoy of a lightly and roomy sitting-room on the second floor, a bar on the ground floor with a free internet point, and a nice and big veranda overlooking the garden, where the buffet breakfast is served in the morning. ... more   less
