We spent two nights at Don Orione and were extremely happy with the quality of our stay. The room was large, bright, and absolutely spotless. There was no TV, and the decor was very simple, but that didn't bother us as we hadn't travelled to Venice to watch TV. The staff were all friendly and helpful; we received recommendations for...

Love this place. Easy access from the Academia vaporreto stop. No stairs and quick walk. Lovely rooms. Single beds, but couples understand options. Very convenient to key historic and top chicetti locations.

Spotless, spacious room. Well-maintained, modern and updated facility in amazingly convenient location mid-way between Zattere stop and Accademia bridge. Front desk staff were unfailingly cordial, helpful, and welcoming. Our room overlooked a quiet former cloister with a distant view of Guidecca Canal. Beds comfortable and clean, with daily housekeeping. Lone elevator was slow during busy times when conferences were in...

Venice is not a cheap place to stay and if you are looking for a lot of accommodation for a group in one place it's even harder. The Don Orione is a former nunnery and the accommodations are appropriately sparse. They have been recently decorated and upgraded so all the rooms are ensuite, but there are no frills such as...

I stayed there 4 nights to attend a writing workshop organised by Pink Pangea, Since it was not my first time in Venice, I packed very light, but was very happy to find out that the hotel is actually 5min away from the vaporetto stop and you don't need to cross bridges and carry around our luggage for miles/km (even...

I traveled here in May with my 19-year-old daughter and we stayed about a week. I booked at the last minute and this was all I could find, although I was hoping for a small apartment ideally. It turned out to be located a perfect distance from Piazza San Marco. We could easily walk there and back encountering beautiful views...

A great location in a quiet, serene area offering simple lodging in a fascinating building. We stayed two nights and were very happy with the basic furnishings, locations, common areas, etc. in a peaceful low tourist area. The price was wonderful and we highly recommend for an easy, simple experience.

We stayed 2 nights at Don Orione in Venice. It's beautifully simple accommodation in a monastery building and perfectly located close to the Accademia Gallery, Peggy Guggenheim collection and within walking distance of all the major tourist attractions. The rooms and bathrooms are simply appointed, very clean - and big compared to others we have stayed in. The staff speak...

The Don Orione Cultural Center was perfect in location, close to Ponte de Accedemia Bridge with a 15 min walk to San Marco Square. Or catch the Vaporetto from Zattere to San Marco. Single room is a bit small, however very clean and serviced every day. Staff very helpful. Great place to stay, just minutes from Peggy Guggenheim Museum and...

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.
