The location was close to the main piazza but not to close. The location is not too confusing because from my stay, Venice can be confusing and you can get lost. My school reserved the place as a group and th staff was pretty organized and helpful.

The Don Orione 'cultural centre' (or religious guest house) is one of our great finds in Venice. It is quietly situated a two minute walk from 'Zattere' which offers a direct link to and from the Marco Polo airport. And it is a few hundred yards from both the Accademia and Peggy Guggenheim galleries and is in easy walking distance...

My wife and I stayed here six nights and loved the calm "blissfully ordinary" neighborhood, yet do easy to get everywhere. The guest house is right behind the magnificent Gesuati Church, one of the prettiest in Venice. Tucked on a quiet square behind the Academia Museum you are equidistant between the Academia vaporetto stop on the Grand Canal and the...

I stayed at Don Orione Hotel in June 2015 for a Women’s Travel Writer Workshop (shout out to Pink Pangea.com). When you reach the dock in Zattere, turn to your right, pass up the church and make the first left. There are several doorways to the building on your left, and they are marked 909/C, 909/B, and 909/A (You can...

You cannot go wrong when choosing this place to stay in Venice. It is absolute peace and you can smell the cleanliness. The location is absolutely brilliant. When coming by vaporetto, the stop is Zattere and it´s a 3-minute walk to the hotel. Walking distance to everywhere and you are not in the middle of the noise, but just perfectly...

We stayed in Don Orione for three nights. Our triple room was enormous with comfortable beds for each of us, a well appointed bathroom, and quiet. It is a bit of a bare bones hotel, but not in a cheap way. It is just a simple church-sponsored hotel that is clean, quiet, and comfortable. The location is fantastic. I plan...

From beginning to end, the welcome at Don Orione was amazing. The staff (reception, breakfast and cleaners) were so patient and friendly, despite our lack of fluency in Italian. Great location, within walking distance of several lovely bridges, restaurants and piazze. The room was spacious and clean, with a great view of the quiet cloister/ courtyard. One morning we saw...

This is a clean, quiet, reasonably priced place to stay. Located near the Academia bridge between the Grand Canal and the Canale della Giudecca, it is close to several Zattere stations. It was a monastery, so don't expect exciting, but the rooms are nice sized and everything is up to date.

My two friends and I stayed here two nights before heading to Croatia for a week of biking on The Tarin. Our room was spacious with three beds and ample room for luggage. Breakfast was a wonderful international experience. Unlimited cappuccino, cheeses and breads. Very convenient location.

For our first overseas trip, our family of four went to Italy in June 2014. Venice is known for overpriced and overdecorated and often noisy hotels. I was having a tough time finding something that would allow us all to quickly adjust to the nine hour time change. We were able to snag four single beds - perfect for sleeping...

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.
