Stay in a Venetian Palace at Hotel American Dinesen

What does a Hotel American Dinesen Room Include?

Guest rooms at the three-star Hotel American Dinesen are suitably grand with balconies overlooking the canal from the Superior rooms. Classic rooms are decorated in Venetian style with tasteful wallpaper, antique furnishings, and rich brocade bedspreads. There are spacious Family rooms and a Junior Suite available with views of the courtyard garden or street. All rooms have a bathroom with shower/bathtub combination, air conditioning, a desk, a minibar, and LCD satellite TV.

What Amenities are Available?

The hotel has a 24-hour front desk with multilingual staff offering concierge services. Breakfast is served buffet style in the dining room. Pleasant public areas include a lounge bar, a snack bar, and a summer terrace for relaxing and watching the boats go by. Guests can make use of the free Wi-Fi internet access available in their rooms and in some public areas.

What are the Rates Like?

Standard rooms in the annex building start from $128 per room in the winter season, but if you want a canal view, expect to pay $177 and up. In summer, the rates are from $187 for standard rooms, and $246 or more for that breathtaking canal view.

What's There to Do Nearby?

Located in the Dorsoduro neighborhood, the hotel overlooks the San Vio Canal with views of the Grand Canal. It is close to the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark’s Square, both about 0.7 miles away. Water taxis and gondolas stop at the hotel’s private wharf. Art lovers will appreciate staying at the Hotel American Dinesen as it is near the Gallerie dell’Accademia museum, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and the Academy of Fine Arts.

What’s the Bottom Line?

This grand 17th-century palace was rebuilt in 1925 but still retains its Venetian architecture. The hotel is convenient for visitors wanting to sightsee on foot or take a romantic gondola ride from the hotel’s private landing stage. The nearby Zattere quay has many open air cafés. It’s a scenic area for enjoying a meal or ice cream with views of the canal and the gondola workshops of Squero di San Trovaso.
