Hotel American Dinesen and San Vio Canal

Hotel American Dinesen entranceThe 30-room Hotel American Dinesen (formerly the Hotel American) is a three-star hotel in the quiet eastern section of Dorsoduro, where it overlooks the San Vio Canal. The neighborhood is pleasant, the hotel has excellent guest ratings, and Wi-Fi is free.

From the Zattere pier of the Alilaguna Blue Line, walking directions are straightforward, with only one small bridge to cross.

How to reach Hotel American Dinesen from the Zattere airport-boat stop:

  1. As you leave the floating Alilaguna pier, turn right and walk along the waterfront to the stone bridge beyond the Hotel Calcina.

  2. Cross the bridge.

  3. Turn left and walk inland along the San Vio Canal on the Fondamenta Bragadin.

  4. In a minute or two, you'll reach the Hotel American Dinesen.

From the San Basilio cruise pier:

  1. Leave the terminal by the main doors and walk to the wooden bridge.

  2. Cross the bridge and continue walking along the waterfront, past the vaporetto stop and the Billa supermarket.

  3. When you reach a stone bridge (the Ponte Lungo), cross it and keep walking straight ahead past two churches.

  4. When you reach the Hotel Calcina, cross the stone bridge just ahead of you.

  5. On the other side of the bridge, turn left and walk inland along the Fondamenta Bragadin until you see the Hotel American Dinesen on your right.

From the Marittima cruise terminals:

  1. Take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat from the cruise basin to the second stop (Zattere). The price will be about half of the fare to the airport.

  2. Get off at the Zattere stop and follow the directions above.
