This hotel is in a great location and could be really good if anyone took the initiative to fulfil its potential. It is presently in need of a complete revamp as it is extremely dated and coming apart at the seems. The hotel has more of a youth hostel feel (and smell) to it and bedding was damp.The bedroom was...

I have been to Venice over a dozen times and this is far and away the worst hotel I have stayed in. It seems more like a youth hostel (smells like one too) masquerading as a three star hotel. This wasn't a cheap hotel but achieved its cheap image quite successfully. Pros: Good location Cons: Awful breakfast, poor and not...

Nice friendly Hotel, room was clean and tidy, fresh bedding and towels every day. Breakfast was good, pastries, croissants, meat and cheese, fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, fruit juices. Air conditioning was brilliant. Step out next to the canal, short walk to the square for food, drinks and supermarket. Orange bar in the square, excellent for snacks and cocktails. Plenty of...

Nice hotel in a good area. Right next to a little square with a few places to eat and shop. Beyond that, more restaurants and shopping are just a few minutes away. Centrally located so you can easily walk anywhere, such as Piazza San Marco, in a short time. The hotel itself is nice. Nicely decorated, and everything functioned well....

The staff at the hotel were extremely welcoming and warm. Very willing to help. They heated up milk whenever we wanted, gave us excellent direction to our destinations. On the last day we were leaving very early and the staff had prepared a breakfast bag for us to take! Very kind and thoughtful of them! The hotel itself was clean...

This hotel is great if you want to explore Venice. Easy walking distance to most of the main attractions and sights. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Very quiet stay, which meant a great nights sleep. Room was nice and very spacious. Only a few things to say for anyone staying here... You have to leave your key everytime you...

Talk about stepping back in time.... way back. The hotel was a little hard to find, I blame that mostly on Venice, but it wouldnt kill them to hang a sign. We arrived early to the hotel, there was no way to get a room earlier. We had to wait 3 hours, I understand check in is at a certain...

Return visit to Venice and used this hotel again. Well located in a trendy but quieter neighbourhood. Classic venetian biulding next to a small canal. Walking distance to all attractions and water bus station.

My room was a big one but a friend of mine ended up in an extremely small one bed room. The hotel was clean, next to the canal. The breakfast was not something special. The location is good. Friendly reception.

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
