We stayed at Hotel Olimpia for two days following a Mediterranean cruise, selecting it because it was a short trip on the people mover from the cruise port to Plaza Roma and then a short walk to the hotel from there. It also provided easy access to the city's bus station when we needed to catch a shuttle to the... More

We stayed at the Hotel Olimpia for one night prior to leaving on a cruise. We booked a junior suite (room 205), and it was perfect. The hotel is situated within a very short walk of the buses. Literally over a small pedestrian bridge. If you don't have much luggage, you could easily take the bus from the airport. You... More

Came here after our cruise and had a wonderful stay. Very close to piazzale roma so it helped not having to go too far with our luggages. The staff here are super nice and so helpful. We couldn't check in early but they held our luggage for us so we could roam around. Rooms are very nice. Beds super comfortable.... More

There's nothing spectacular about this hotel except the location to catch an early morning shuttle bus to the airport. The Good: the triple rooms are spacious, clean and there's plenty of hot water. The courtyard is pretty. Breakfast was plentiful. The Bad: Our 'canal view' rooms looked onto the bus station. The key operates ALL the lights as one entity,... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in October 2016 and recommend it! We would stay here again in a heartbeat! We were coming into Venice on the train, so wanted a hotel walkable from the train station because we would hauling our luggage.

We travelled to Venice as a group of six, three couples, and we booked this hotel by perusing the web. It was a great choice, well placed for arrivals by train or bus and well placed for a bus to the airport when we departed. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed; and the staff were friendly and helpful. It... More

We stayed at the Olimpia three years ago and we're very glad to return. Since we were last there it has been refurbished not that it seemed to need it before. This time we had a lovely room at the front of the hotel. Being cold we didn't have the windows open so weren't affected by any possible noise from... More

Hotel is conveniently located to bus for airport, and the local water transportation. The hotel staff gave us directions to a glass blowing factory on Murano so we could take the water transport to Murano, then walk to the glass blowing demonstration. All wonderful.

Stayed for two nights earlier this month with my husband and another couple. We chose this hotel because of the location, just across the canal bridge from Piazzale Roma which is the last point at which cars can go and within walking distance of the train station. Got a transfer from airport at a very reasonable 45 euro fare. Just... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
