"Perfect complement to a perfect vacation"
This hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. Like most first visitors to Venice, we were not sure what to expect in terms of location and service. This hotel was close enough to everything while still being quiet refuge at the end of the day. The hotel service was absolutely excellent and I would easily recommend this to anyone visiting Venice.

"Ideally situated"
We had a great stay at this hotel! We took a water taxi from the train station to the hotel, which though pricier than the vaporetto was worth every penny. It dropped us off literally right in front of the hotel. The room was lovely and very clean and everyone that worked at the hotel was helpful and friendly. Another plus was the proximity to all of the sights; we walked everywhere from the hotel. I will stay here again on a return visit to Venice!

"Great location for St Marks- Realto Bridge"
Water taxi drops you at the front door and baggage is handled by the hotel staff. Nice Room was beautiful and roomy and bathroom a delight. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Easy walk to St Marks and Rialto bridge and all the shops and cafes. Peggy Guggenheim Musuem within 5 minutes walk. The best meal we had on our cruise including the specialty restuarants and extra nights stay in Venice was Ristorante Cantinone Etorico was 100 feet from the hotel. Try the Sea Bass baked in salt for 2 prepared table side with a side of the most outstanding dish of spinach that I have ever tasted- magnifico Water taxi to the airport made the whole Venice experience carefree

"Fantastic, quiet location."
American Dinesen is in the perfect location. It is close to everything or just a brief vaporetto ride away. The hotel staff spoke excellent English and offered excellent trips for places to dine. Our room, 301, had fantastic views with wrap around windows for a great view of a small canal and typical Venetian life. The only drawback is it's third floor location with no elevators. Your bags will be carried up for you. Tip generously. One thing that struck us was how quite and peaceful it was there with no automobile noise. Breakfasts were typical of what we've found in Italy, a bit on the sweet side for our tastes. However, yogurts, boiled eggs, hams and cheese are also offered. Do try the blood orange juice, the punch-colored juice, if you're used to American style, Florida orange juice. Fantastic. A great Venetian experience indeed.

"Pleasant apartment"
First, this hotel is a good distance from the train station which we used to arrive and to get to the airport home. Luggage transport to and from the hotel either requires many staired bridges or about a 70 euro water taxi ride. Our apartment / room was nice - very modern and not classic Italian. It was all clean and spacious. The staff was ok - we got accustomed to the friendliness of Florence so the less than friendly people of Venice was notable. Apparently, our reservation did not include breakfast so we cannot comment there.

Very nice, small hotel on a quiet canal. Friendly staff. Stayed in the back, separate section which is very private and quiet. Spacious room there. Close to waterbus stop and art museum. Check to make sure breakfast is included thought ours was but was charged for it at checkout along with the taxes which they wanted cash for. Makes me wonder if something is amiss.

"Very easy stay. Nice people and great breakfast."
Nice, helpful people and a great breakfast for our family. Our room was in the top floor, and we were pleased to have 4 beds for the 4 of us. The boys (12 and 15) were probably happiest on their fold-out/roll-out beds, as our beds were a bit stiff, but we slept well. Our air conditioner kept things reasonable, but in the 95+ degree heat, it barely kept up, so it was a bit warm for sleep. Great convenient location to everything, while staying in a very quiet, less busy block!

"A pleasure to return to this charming spot"
We always experience a wonderful welcome here. We arrived early, and were able to get into our room within a few minutes. A cheerful bellman delivered our bags. The room looked over the little canal, and was comfortable enough. (perhaps a new mattress is in order some day soon) Always great to have air conditioning in August! A nice breakfast each morning provided the perfect start to each day. When it came time to leave, once again our luggage was collected and brought down to our waiting water taxi.

This is a wonderful hotel, centrally located very close to museums and transit in Venice's "Greenwich Village", which is less touristy than Venice's other neighborhoods that are located right off the Grand Canal. It is very walkable and chalked full of cafes and the Biennale's summer exhibitions. Even in the the high tourist season the hotel and its surroundings weren't uncomfortably crowded. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. They arranged wonderful dinners for us at eateries that locals frequent that we would never have found ourselves. We will definitely return to Venice and stay at the Hotel American-Dinesen!

Excellent location for exploring Venice--5 minutes to the Accademia Bridge and museum, and 15 minutes to the Rialto in one direction and about the same amount of time to San Marco in the other direction. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the breakfast generous, and the staff very helpful. This hotel is also in a charming, quiet area, and easy to get to by vaporetto. Check out the hotel's website--they have a webcam set up and you can see the neighborhood!

Booked this hotel after much research. No regrets. Stayed here 4 nights. Great location on a quiet canal but well located near major sights. Staff is awesome and works very hard to make your experience a great one. Rooms are spotless. Got the canal view room but had little time to enjoy it as most of my days were spent sightseeing. What I particularly like about this hotel its away from all the tourist trap hotels and traffic. Great hotel!

The hotel was quaint and the staff fabulous. One of the staff members did have a bit of trouble with time. He would say things were just a few minutes walk away but they would in fact be 45 minted away but we got used to this and adjusted. Besides this the people were very helpful and even held our bags after check out so we could enjoy the city until our train departure late that afternoon.

"Well placed quiet hotel"
Hotel is on a quiet side canal to the Grand Canal, easy to find from Il Zattare boat station. Pleasant room with a canal view for which we paid an extra 40 euros per night. A good selection of fruit, yogurt, cold meats and cheese and lovely pastries at breakfast. Only small problem was the aircon - it kept the room pleasantly cool during the day but night times were too cold (we stayed during a coolish late June) and turning up the heat setting didn't make any difference. The extra fleece blanket was needed each night.

6 day holiday for 3 people. Lovely hotel situated in the Dorsoduro district of Venice. Conveniently 1 minute away from the bridge over the grand canal and vaporetto at Accademia. The rooms were furnished to a high standard and the beds fitted with the latest mattresses which shape to your body but a re firm. There is a lift in the hotel if you have heavy bags or tired feet! We received a warm welcome and "Buongiorno" each day from the lovely Elisabetta on reception who was helpful and patient with our basic Italian. They kindly put us in two adjacent rooms which was very convenient and typical of their consideration and general helpfulness.

"Very good hotel in Academia, Venice."
I first stayed at the American Hotel in Venice 10 years ago and booked here again as I had enjoyed the previous stay. Once again I found the hotel to be ideal for a short stay in Venice. It is ideally situated in a quiet area of Academia and perfect for walking to most areas on the two main islands. The blue line water bus from the airport stops a convenient five minutes walk away. The standing of the hotel exceeds the star rating in my opinion. The staff are also friendly and helpful. Even a stay in the annex right next to the main building is a real treat with spacious rooms and a courtyard garden.

The hotel exceeded all expectations. It is small and we felt like welcome guests. The staff were uniformly friendly and ready to help. For instance, one evening, the manager recommended places to eat that he himself enjoyed and frequented. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and the linen impeccable. In the considerable heat, the air-con in our bedroom worked very efficiently. The hotel is next door to the Academia and the Guggenheim and gives you great access to the city. At the same time, the location is quiet - a peaceful spot after a day's site-seeing. We heartily recommend it. It was just what we wanted and at the same time, suited our 22 year old and his partner. We would be more than happy to return.
