More Room Types

Hotel American Dinesen is a 17th-century canalside townhouse in the Dorsoduro district of Venice, close to the Grand Canal, an area that The Guardian describes as the "real Venice".

Dorsoduro is at the south of the island. Bustling St Mark's Square, where you'll find the Basilica, the Campanile and the Doge's Palace, is only 15 minutes' walk away, yet the area is noticeably more peaceful. Three of Venice's star attractions are on your doorstep: the Peggy Guggenheim Collection (home to major works by artists such as Picasso, Miró and Pollock), the Gallerie dell'Accademia of pre-19th-century art and the Ponte dell'Accademia, one of the four bridges across the Grand Canal.

The hotel building, with its yellow stucco façade, is typical of the townhouses you see on the canals in Venice, and inside it is decorated in similarly traditional style, with gilt wall lamps, warm woods and furniture of deep reds and golds. Fodor's praises the hotel's "exceptional service" and "spacious" rooms. There's a breakfast room and a bar/lounge.

Classic Rooms have views of the courtyard or the street. Upgrade to a Canal View Room for views over the Rio de San Vio, which runs north-south between the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal. The hotel has additional rooms in its modern annexe. Rooms in both buildings have air conditioning and free Wi-Fi.
