Hotels in Venice

There are a lot of hotels in Venice but nevertheless, places in hotels may not be enough. This is especially true in high season and during popular events (such as Carnival).

This is due to the fact that hotels in Venice, as a rule, are small and with a small number of rooms, as well as because the fact that Venice is one of the most visited cities in Italy.

Therefore, all those who are planning a trip to Venice, can be recommended to book a hotel in advance, as soon as travel dates will be known. You may find the hotel map helpful.

The best and most luxurious hotels in Venice are usually located near the Piazza San Marco and close to the Grand Canal. Among the best hotels can be called, for example Belmond Hotel Cipriani, Aman Canal Grande, Danieli Hotel.

For many tourists, it will be most convenient to choose a hotel close to the Santa Lucia train station and the Piazzale Roma square (the bus station and taxis are located there). It will be more convenient to you to get to the airport or to other destinations by bus or by train from these places (especially if you have a lot of luggage). You can walk in the historic center of the city (and save money on tickets for water transport).

Many tourists choose to stay hotels, which are located in the Mestre area (mainland of Venice). Accommodation can be a bit cheaper there, but way to the city center is a little longer.

Among the most inexpensive hotels, can be called, for example, Pensione Guerrato, Hotel Apostoli Garden, Hotel Ca' Dogaressa.

Hostel in Venice

Another recommendation for those planning a trip to Venice. Carefully study the route to your hotel on the map. It can be difficult to find the right place in this town, if you only know the address. It will be helpful to print out and take with you a map, which indicated the location of your hotel. Our Venice map can also be useful to you too. (There is a version for mobile devices.)

Venice is quite a small city. You can easily get to the desired place from any hotel located in the central part of the city. If you decide to stay in a part of the city east of the Grand Canal, it is better to choose a hotel next to one of the bridges.
Probably, you should not choose a hotel on the Lido or Giudecca islands (without special need).
