We arrived in Venice by train so chose a hotel that was an easy walk from the station; we are so glad we did. The hotel was amazing, friendly staff, beautiful rooms with a great canal view. We even had a welcome prosecco! We also chose the area of Santa Croce as it was slightly away from the main tourist...

Ok - so this isn't quite normal for me to leave a review of a place before I go, and I hope tripadvisor doesn't mind, but I just had to let everyone know how wonderful Marta has been. I have booked this hotel several months out for a few day stay before a cruise. Having never been to Venice, and...

Right on the canal and across from the bus station. Very friendly and helpful staff. Gorgeous and huge breakfast buffet. Right at the edge of everything. Loved it. Rooms beautifully decorated in classic Venetian Italian but a little small, this is Venice. Very comfortable firm beds and super clean bathroom.

Easy to find and great location: close to the bus station and a bit further away from the hassle and bustle of the city centre (San Marco is about 30 minutes away on foot). The staff is extremely courteous and friendly. The rooms are not huge but still a decent size and comfortable. Everything is extremely clean. Very happy with...

The Olimpia is a very nice hotel and it was easy to get to from the train station, where we arrived (1 bridge). You could see it from the parking lot, yet from within the hotel itself, there is no external noise from there. The bed was a little harder than I was used to, but it didn't keep me...

The location, room, breakfast was all absolutely superb and i am surprised it is not a 4 star rated hotel! Being GF, the staff were very understanding and accommodating with a prepacked GF breakfast waiting for me. The hotel on arrival offered a free trip to the island of Murano with guided tour and free prosecco on the first night....

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.
