This was my first visit to Venice and my husband and I spent 5 nights at the Hotel American Dinesen from April 10th to 15th. I chose the hotel having read reviews on Tripadvisor and was not at all disappointed. Our room (202) overlooked a canal and was delightful, clean and comfortable with an excellent bathroom. The housekeeping staff were wonderfully efficient with the bedlinen and towels changed daily (such a treat). Breakfast was great, really set you up for the day. Fresh fruit salad as well as whole pieces of fruit, dried fruit, boiled eggs, cheeses, ham, salami, pastries, cakes and croissant, bread and rolls, fruit juice, cereals and great tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The lady who brought our tea and coffee and replenished the food on offer was so nice. All members of staff we encountered were delightful. Every one of them was helpful, polite and friendly. Any questions we had were dealt with efficiently and nothing was too much trouble. We loved the area surrounding the hotel and were able to get around on foot to so many parts of Venice. We had pre- booked a water-taxi from the airport direct to the hotel and the return journey which proved to be a blessing and such an exciting way to travel through Venice having never visited before. We had the water-taxi to ourselves, both ways and as I had booked both journeys on-line we saved 40Euros overall. Booked a few things on-line before we got to Venice like a walking tour with gondola ride and a boat trip to Murano, Burano and Torcello - all great by the way. The hotel us very close to the Accademia Bridge and is perfectly located for getting around. Free Wifi was useful too. Go to Venice and stay at the Hotel American Dinesen, you will not be disappointed.
