Location of the hotel is good. % mins walking distance there is a boat stop and you get direct boat to train station and bus stop. St. Marks Square is also nearby. There is a Conad supermarket in walking distance. But this hotel does not have any proper reception. NO staff working inside this hotel. For Check-in,check-out,breakfast you have to...

The location was excellent, the breakfast was very good and plentiful, the room was clean and perfect for our purposes. The hotel can be reached from the Zattere Alilaguna stop without crossing any bridges. It's also accessible from the Academie Vaporetto stop without crossing any bridges. There are good restaurants nearby and it's just a short walk across the Academie...

Pros: Great Location - easy to get from an to the airport, and very convenient to visit the city. Fair price compared to Venice usual prices. Cons: Rude staff (as in most Venice, but worst than most), Breakfast and reception in a different building (just across the street) and no contact information in the building). No duvet covers. Two copules...

I rated the hotel as "very good", for its location. We took the Alilaguna (blue line) from the airport and our stop was at Zattere station, directly at the end of the street, on which the hotel was located, so comfortable and very convenient!!! And it's very close to the Accademia and lots of other sights. Although, when I made...

This hotel was a truly bad experience. We were four people staying in two double rooms, and there were rats inside one of the rooms. The hotel has showed an extremely bad service, has not replied to our complaint nor apologized. The day after, we watched many really fat rats in the hotel garden. The receptionist was rude and not...

First of all this is not more than a hostel. No names written outside no signs. We checked-in from an other hotel called Belle Arti. In Domus Cavanis there is no reception desk or someone in charge. We stayed there only for 1 night. Our friends also pay same amount but got a larger room for 2. During the night...

Relatively short walk from the Accademia Water Boat stop on the Grand Canal. The hotel is in a nice quiet neighborhood. The room was small. Not much room around the bed and a small bathroom, but it was nice. Wi-Fi was available in the room; its speed varied some during the day and occasionally it was difficult to get a...

The Domus Cavanis is located in the Accademia area, it is one of our favorite places because it is not infested with tourist and still have a local flavor. Also food is less expensive that in the San Marcos area. Easy to find, it has a great location to get anywhere in Venice, a short couple of minutes walk to...

The rooms are beautifully decorated and are kept well cleaned. The location is fantastic, fairly quiet but also close to main tourist attractions. We had difficulty finding this hotel as there was no sign to indicate that this was the hotel - it just looks like a house. There were no staff on the reception, all the staff were at...

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.

“Just understand that you check in at the Belle Arti across the street. The Domus Cavanis appeared deserted when we arrived, so I called the number on my reservation. The lady who answered simply refused to give me directions - three times.”
