Wonderful hotel -comfortable bed beautiful room friendly and helpful staff good breakfast - what more could you want? A landing stage where a water taxi can drop you and all that luggage right at the front door. This hotel is a pleasant walk from San...More
Got a great deal here during the off season. My understanding is that it, like most of Venice, gets really expensive in the summer. The flip side of the cheap prices is that it was very quiet at night near the hotel. Almost too quiet....More

After reading every review of this hotel (and many others) we selected the American to stay a week in Venice. Of all the reviews we read, two people had semi-negative things to say, including a comment about a hard mattress (I found the mattress to...More
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.

As others before me have stated there are no cars in Venice. See Tricia H's response for excellent car parking arrangements. The hotel does have a private water taxi dock. The nearest Vaperetto (Venice's version of a public bus) is at the Academia Bridge. Then you will have to walk past the Academia turn left for about a block, cross over a foot bridge, turn right and the hotel is just beyond a cafe. Ciao!
