We chose this hotel from the reviews on TA and it was everything that it has been billed as. Obviously hotels in Venice are extortionately priced, and this hotel is a solid 3 star when viewed as the building only, but you are really paying...More
This is the second time that I have stayed at the Hotel American, and it is a wonderful and quiet place to stay. It's away from the tourist bustle surrounding San Marco, but is an easy traghetto hop across the Grand Canal or walk over...More
We had a wonderful stay at Hotel American! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are extremely large and clean (we had a triple). Breakfast is good and offers a variety. The hotel is situated close to Accademia Bridge and a 10 minute...More
Highly recommend this hotel. We had to move from another which didn't suit for personal reasons, and the American Dinesen arranged for assistance in getting our luggage moved over. We had one of the rooms in the apartment which was very suitable. Very large room,...More
We only stayed here two day, but if..or hopefully when...I return to Venice, I would not hesitate to stay here again.

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

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!
