What experience. The rude lady at reception or the rude lady at breakfast. The room was small,smelly and the AC was not working at all. The breakfast was sub-par with an unkept garden. Was promised another room ,but that was not realized. Stay away from this hotel at all costs. A small dirty room with dirty towels laying around in...

Mr Botha We are sorry for the non-positive review that you have left us, but in many positive reviews a negative can happen and this will be for us to try to improve our service. We want to point out that we have provided the required service and if the room had the arrival day was not of value, just...

Hotel Pausania is a very good hotel, centrally located, with loads and loads of character. But, it is a little tired in places. I've just returned from a 3 night City Break in Venice, with my wife and 19 year old step-daughter. Consequently, it was a double room for me and my wife and a single room for the step...

We've just got back from a short break at this hotel. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers and all stayed in a family room, which had loads of space for the four of us. The room was clean and well equipped and our room had what seemed like a new bathroom. The Hotel itself is located...

This hotel has lots of character, but facilities need a bit of updating. Continental breakfast is provided in the garden room which is light and airy. Staff were also helpful. Good location near to bars and restaurants and within 5 minute walking distance of a vaparetto stop.

So, we booked this hotel ahead of better rated hotels based on the area and the amenities of Dosorduro. This worked. A great little location in which you can explore the attractions of this beautiful city. However, despite its cleanliness, great outdoor, wonky staircase and great location, this hotel is let down by the poor attitude of the staff on...

We stayed here for 4 nights and the area is excellent for a peaceful stay in Venice. Not far to the Accademia Bridge and about 30 minutes to St Mark's Square. The hotel could do with a refurbishment as the rooms are rather tired and the garden has been neglected. Our room was very small with no view but on...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This palace was a rich and magnificent residence of an aristocratic Venetian family, now it is an elegant and refined 3 stars Hotel, completely restored. The Hotel enjoys of an interesting position, preferred by the intellectuals and artists, searching for quiet and inspiration. Inside the Hotel, at the entrance, there is a stoned staircase that goes from the lobby to the second floor, once called "piano nobile", where there are some rooms. The intelligent restoration has effected a correct and balanced compromise between aesthetical demands and the non-renounced functional requirements, essential an hotel that wants to keep step with the times. The rooms, in typical Venetian style,are furnished with elegance and good taste, with all comforts (private bathroom with bathtub, hairdryer, cable TV, direct dial telephone, mini-bar, air-conditioned, coffee and thea machine). Our clients can also enjoy of a lightly and roomy sitting-room on the second floor, a bar on the ground floor with a free internet point, and a nice and big veranda overlooking the garden, where the buffet breakfast is served in the morning. ... more   less
