This was our second stay at the Hotel Olimpia. Both times were post cruise. The location is convenient to the cruise port (take the People Mover for 1.50 euros), and it is right next to Piazzale Roma, where you can catch a bus to the airport. The walk requires going over stairs that cross a canal. It is also close...

For your arrival /departure, all the transportation options to the airport and rail are only a few steps ( and stairs ) away. Similarily, the hotel is very close to all the transportation access in Venice. You can settle in the hotel and be on your way via the Grand Canal with only a short stroll. The rooms are a...

We stayed here during our trip to Venice. The hotel is just a 10 min Walk from SL station. Good option to dine around the hotel. The waterbus station is just 5 mins walk. Staff are friendly and helpful. Like any hotel in Venice the rooms are small but overall the interiors helps you in getting out of that cramped...

For a pre-cruise hotel, the Olimpia is ideal. It is not fancy but it has charm and is perfectly located! Our room was in the least expensive category, a classic double. It was small but we knew we would not spent much time in it. The room overlooked a lovely garden area. it was very quiet. I think the garden...

My husband and I travelled along ways from Canada to Venice Italy. Like most visitors to Venice you don't know where to stay. The Best Western in Venice was worth the stay. It was the perfect location to the downtown area. Restaurants and shops near by. A breakfast included . Clean rooms, helpful friendly staff. What more could you ask...

The hotel is located a short walk from the car parking and the train station. Some of the windows face the canal but we've got a nice room facing the backyard. Breakfast was very good and had very many items, including wine :) We liked the room decor. We would choose the same hotel if we are to return !

The reception and the bell staff were very helpful and welcoming. We booked a room at this hotel for its close proximity to the cruise ship pier so it was a five to ten minute walk to the people mover, going over one small bridge, which takes you to the pier. The Piazzale Roma, which is the bus depot to...

Hotel was very nice, close to Piazzale Roma and all transportation - water bus, taxi, and trains. Good restaurants nearby. Not close to St. Mark square, but certainly withing walking distance - 45 minutes to an hour - wandering through the narrow streets and over canals. Staff was very friendly, spoke excellent English and had good recommendations. Highly recommend.

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.
