“Beautiful location, great staff, rooms with views”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

My wife and I stayed at Hotel American Dinesen for a couple nights as part of our honeymoon. The staff was great. Our room had a little balcony/terrace overlooking one of the side canals. It was clean, and in a great part of Venice (can walk to everything). We had pre-ordered the strawberries and flowers, so our room smelled great when we got there and we had a nice snack after a long day of travel. I also wrote to them in advance and told them it was a honeymoon, and they gave us a corner room. I'd highly recommend this place.

Our family of three booked a triple room here in September. We had a small balcony that looked over a canal that was right off of the Grand Canal. We also had another window that overlooked the canal. The hotel was a short walk from the Accadamia Bridge and a vaporetta stop in one direction, and a few blocks from the lagoon in the other direction. We had several problems with flights and missing luggage and the hotel staff was so helpful to us by making phone calls and advising us in what we should do. Our problems were solved by the end of our stay and we were grateful for the interest and help we received from the staff. Everyone was friendly and the hotel was clean and beautifully decorated. If we ever return to Venice, we will be sure to stay here again.

we stayed 3 nites here on our last trip in april. we had 1 of the little apartments which werent so little. huge bathroom with washing machine, great lounge dinning/ kitchen area and a loft bedroom. it .was all very modern compared to their hotel rooms which are very authentic. staff are fantastic and recommendations for resturants we spot on. our luggage was lost at the airport and the staff went out of their way to help us track it down and speaking to airport staff for us. upon it finally arriving they even txt us to stop us worrying and having to come back to hotel to check. the apartment was spotless had everything we needed. reception and breakfast room beautifully appointed. breakfast (not included in apartment price) was excellent and well worth the money. having the washing machine was a bonus after 2 weeks away. a just cant find anything to fault this hotel 5 stars at every point and id recommend this hotel to anyone who will listen

Inspite of a name that seems to indicate a focus on travellers from the US, our recent stay was just fine. The room we had was small and cozy with a small veranda with a garden view. This was a quiet and comfortable room and was appointed with fabric covered walls and a sweet glass chandelier that appeared to be murano glass. The staff was most helpful (especially Marco) with planning restaurants and boat trips to Murano. We were entirely satisfied with our stay.

This hotel is in a quieter neighborhood, but a short walk to most attractions. The rooms are small and musty, but I have heard that is what to expect in Venice. The staff was helpful calling us a water taxi when we needed to get to the train station, since all other transportation was on strike.

Our experience at the hotel was wonderful. The room was clean, comfortable and lovely. The staff was exceedingly helpful! The restaurant recommendations provided by the desk staff were excellent and the room service was prompt and polite.
We enjoyed the breakfast. The quality and assortment of food was outstanding. I don't think we could have been more pleased at a five star hotel! Not the best value in high season, but booking directly will save you money. Nice private patio for a cocktail and snacks.

Room Tip: we requested a quiet room when we reserved and were accommodated on the second floor with a quiet pa...

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 Marco with lovely views for the Grand Canal if you have a balcony room - does not have a lift if you have problems with stairs although they are not steep stairs. Hotel offers a free water taxi to Murano
Water taxis are not cheap but well worth it to get you to and from airport or rail station - no struggling with luggage up and down steps to get over the many bridges in Venice. The public water "bus" system is good to get you to the islands

Room Tip: book a room with a canal view
