We saw this hotel here on Trip Advisor and it seems to have great reviews so we went there. It was as good as people said! We stayed in the "modern" room in the Annex (not in the main building) and it was fun and...More
We liked the location, close to the alilaguna (waterbus) stops and the bridge over the grande canal. The hotel looked good inside and out and the room was really well decorated and appointed with the unexpected addition of a little balcony with a side view...More
Just got back from honeymoon in Venice, a special trip made even more special by the hotel, fabulous room (302) location just perfect, away from the bustle and noise, but close enough to walk with ease into the main tourist bits. Staff were superb and...More
We stayed in the modern apartments and we were very impressed. We had heard horror stories about Venice accommodations and expected to be paying through the nose for a terrible room. While these rooms still weren't cheap, they were great value compared to other places....More
We stayed at Hotel American Dinesen for 3 nights in July. Easy to find from the Accademia vaporetto stop. The staff was friendly when we arrived and the porter carried our bags up to our room (no elevator). Lovely canal view from our room. We...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. 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.

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!
