MAY 9, 2010 - VeniceAfter four excellent stops, in Hong Kong, Singapore, Cairo and Istanbul, I touched down at San Marco Airport in Venice this morning to begin the second phase of my SpinFirst.com Around the World Spin! From here, I’m taking the train via Zurich, Bruges/Brussels to London with a final stop in Paris. 96 hours…This is a …
Venice … an intriguing tangle of beautiful canals and alleyways, a place of no cars, of everything having to be shipped in… surviving on the 'artificial respirator of tourism'…. Gondoliers … on their mobiles, smoking while gliding through the canals… souvenir vendors with colourful masks and plastic gondolas for sale. …
Ahhhhh Venice...... we are staying in a beautifuil spot, close to the tourist hordes but far enough away that they dont come near us. Tourists can be real annoying you know....
We are staying in a great hotel on a tiny canal, one stop from St Marks. Its quiet and peaceful and pretty. We spent the morning wandering this area, lookng at the …
We had a great night sleep in Venice. The hotel is warm and cozy and the window shades are closed so neither does the sun or the church bells wake us. That's a nice change from the other cities we've been in! John gets up first and notices it's snowing outside!!!! OMG! I spring out of bed to see it for myself (still a Florida girl) and sure enough …
We all tried to sleep in today but John and I have to catch a morning train to Venice to get there today. It's a long haul up the western coast of Italy past Santa Margarita (great wine country) through Genoa and get off the train in Milan. From Milan we take a train to Venice and finally arrive 6 hours after we left Vernazza. By the time we reach …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel American Dinesen Venice
i found this Hotel to be very nice - even the single rooms which in any Hotel tend to be the smallest and worst in the building. My application form failed to inform them i walk with a stick and as there is no lift [very few in Venice!], it was a bit of a trek to the third floor. But as soon as the Concierge saw my stick, he clicked and tutted and the next night moved me down to the 1st Floor. He would have done it the first night but had no rooms available. There is free internet access and i was very comfortable in my week there. My only complaint was the Restaurant was only for breakfast, no dinners. [You could get limited room service for coffees and willingly done]. It made me go out each night to eat but there are small restaurants close by that are not too expensive. The one next door to the Hotel is a little on the pricey side. There is a pizzeria next to the Accadamia Bridge that is both cheap, cheerful and very good - with waiters to die for!! Venice should be experienced at least once and i was happy to get a water taxi from the front door of the Hotel out to the Airport when i left - it was worth every Euro!
We stayed at this hotel 6 years ago and unless it's undergone a major renovation, I am mystified by the rave reviews. Yes, there were large rooms with a view of the canal, but only 2 to a floor. Our room was small, dark, and dismal. You'd need a periscope to get a view of anything at all. All this for $300 and that was in 1997.If the hotel's been renovated, I retract my statements. If not, I don't get it!
We last stayed there 10 years ago, and we were concered we wouldn't like is as much now. We were right; we liked it better! It has a quiet, but convenient location. Quaint European rooms and up-to-date bathrooms. Along with a very helpful staff, it also provides free email access. One caveat...the rooms in the back tend to be quite dark.

What a delightful hotel! We had a room overlooking the canal with THREE double french-style windows AND balconies!!! The room decor was very venetian with a beautiful murano chandelier. Very professional and friendly staff. The best location if you want to relax and enjoy the phenomenal view.
The best place to stay
I stayed at the Hotel American in February and fell in love with it. Pretty yellow exterior overlooking canal. Rooms are comfortable and modestly elegant with modern baths. Wonderful location, a very short walk from the Academia Bridge near the Peggy Guggenheim. It was easy to get to the standard tourist attractions (Piazza San Marco, etc.), but far enough away from the tourist buzz. Free Internet access in the lobby is very convenient. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Good Cafe American at breakfast.
Wonderful place to stay in Venice. Clean rooms, free Internet access, good service, nourishing breakfast. Hotel placed in two minutes walk from Academia bridge and Peggi Gugenheim Collection Museum in quite and beautiful neighbourhood.
