Great family accommodation just moments from the Accademia and vapparetto. Rooms located in a 15th Century building. We had a gorgeous quad room, comfy beds and a wonderful breakfast included.

Just stayed here for a couple of nights. A really convenient location, just a few minutes walk from Piazzale Romana where the airport buses arrive and opposite the train station, but down a quiet back street in a residential area. OK, it's not central but the location made it so easy to get in and out of Venice. It's no problem to wander into the centre from there in 30 minutes, or the Nr 2 vaporetto takes you to San Marco in 20 minutes as you're at the head of the Grand Canal. The other side of the Canal, the Station side was full of hotels and restaurants and packed with tourists, this side was quiet and pleasant.The staff were extremely helpful and recommended good restaurants and bars, breakfast was great and the hotel itself is very attractive.
Ca'delle Acque is a very central bed and breakfast in Venice and still a good budget place. Just five minutes by feet from Rialto and S. Mark´s square, a gem of simplicity and praticality.
Very special build, a room per floor and a beautiful private terrace overlooking a canal if you have the lucky to stay in the suite.
A four star luxury hotel that perfectly blends old and new. My parents and I had a fantastic stay here a few months ago. Elegant, yet understated where it needs to be, this hotel offers all the common amenities plus a choice between modern rooms and traditional ones that we found really accommodating. The location right on the grand canal and the views from the restaurant are absolutely spectacular and a reason to stay there in itself. The restaurant is definitely elegant, and actually surprisingly good since it is a tourist attraction within one big tourist attraction. We were blown away by the service as well. And being only minutes from St. Mark's square was definitely spectacular in terms of location as well. There are places in Venice where one can certainly spend a lot more, and though this is very expensive in high season, you can actually swing deals depending on when you go. Still though, in terms of beauty, comfort, and service, this more than fit the bill.
Antico Fiore is a charming hotel in Venice, an old palace totally renewed and furnished in old Venetian style.
Very comfortable rooms and service, special breakfast overlooking a canal reaching the Canal Grande.
Very close to St. Mark's square and Accademia.
Charming accommodation in Venice's historical centre, close to St. Mark's square, in a beautiful "campo" called St. Maurizio.
The room was very nice, comfortable, also for my family, four persons. Annalisa, the keeper, was very friendly and gave us some good insider tip about Venice.
Ca' delle Acque is a small yet charming Bed and Breakfast in Venice center, just between S. Mark's square and Rialto Bridge.
It's very private, just one room per floor, and quite cheap for an accommodation in the historical center of Venice. The service is helpful and friendly and our room was clean, with private bathroom. No special features like WIFI or internet connection, only LCD Sat TV, but a good place to rest a while between all the sightseeing.
It's not easy to find budget accommodation in Venice, as we found on a recent tour of Italy. If you do manage to find somewhere cheap, there's usually a lock out or curfew so we were happy to find the more chilled out 'Venice Fish' by the canal.
This beautiful old 16th century palace is on one of the main streets in Venice, but inside the hostel is fun, modern and laid back, with big and homely rooms, and friendly, helpful staff.
It might not be as fancy as some hostels but breakfast and dinner are included, and the staff will take you out in search of local nightlife.
You're only a few minutes from the Casino, Rialto Bridge, and the train station.
Absolutely lovely B&B and not expensive for Venice. It's near to the centre, comfortable, friendly, clean, beautiful and has its own kitchen in the room. We felt really at home and comfortable there.

It's not just a B&B, providing studios with kitchen and private bathroom, ideal for two people.
I spent a nice weekend in this B&B (that is located close to San Marco), with just 100 Euros per studio per night.
Modern, minimal, but with a friendly staff all just steps away from the famous Ponte dei Sospiri. I wanted breakfast to last forever - sipping on coffee as gondolas literally skim your jacket sleeve... Magical.
I don't know what to say about this Venice hostel except that it's everything a good, cheap hostel should be.
The location is unbeatable, a five-minute stroll to Piazza San Marco and even closer to the Rialto Bridge. You really get the feeling that you're staying right in the heart of the city and on a typical Venetian street.
It's very reasonable for a private room – and a room that's nice and sunny, too!
They said they do special last minute deals that work out even cheaper, but, it's such a great place I can't imagine they've spare rooms all that often.

You are sent photos of a beautiful modern apartment "newly refurbished" and when you get there you are conducted to a completely different flat filled with cheap and nasty reproduction furniture, artificial flowers and glass tat.
On top of this there is a lovely view from the balcony of major building works in progress in the street opposite. The 'owner' Andrea Scarpi tells you that the 'other flat' is unavailable but still expects you to pay the same price you were quoted for the smart one. The breakfast is not worth having - all long-life products, nothing at all fresh, and three people share coffee from an espresso maker for one. A complete rip off.
All I wanted was the five Cs
Cheap – in Venice that’s almost impossible, but this was very reasonable.
Cheerful – fabulous smile from the receptionist on arrival and every time we returned.
Cosy – ask for an attic room at the back so you can spy down into the locals' gardens below, and see the ocean liners berth in the distance. The breakfast room overlooks a local canal.
Clean – room was spotless and cleaned every day.
Convenient – 50 metres from Piazzale Roma bus station and car park, 250 metres from vaporetto number 1 stop, and 5 minutes from the railway station.
This small hotel (about seven rooms) has a spectacular location on the Grand Canal, right by the Rialto bridge. Our room (junior suite) had a breathtaking view right onto the Grand Canal. Excellent service from the charming owner made us feel like royalty - a really special place.
Venice is magical, there's no denying it, but space on the main islands is at a premium and therefore accommodation tends to be very pricey. On our last visit we chose to stay on the island of Murano, and rented an apartment from a local there. It cost us less than £30 per night (for the apt, not per person!) and it was fabulous. For a start, the vaporettos (water buses) run all night, and it only takes 15 mins to get to Venice on the boat, on the most beautiful route you could imagine, past the stunning cemetery island. Secondly, although it is home to plenty of tourists during the daytime, (visiting the glass factories), they are absent in the morning and evening, and you really feel like a member of the local community. There are lovely grocery shops, a supermarket, and a fruit boat - to buy all your fresh food. And there are some great local restaurants to eat in should you not feel like venturing over onto mainland Venice for dinner. It's also really easy to get to from either airport, as the boats run straight there from Piazzale Roma. It's the perfect counterpoint to the chaos of Venice's main islands. Finally, it's also closer to Burano, the beautiful island nearby, which is home of the amazing restaurant Il Gatto Nero. Do it. You won't regret it.
Murano next to venice - go hunting on google, you'll find accomodation!
For quality at a fairly affordable price in Venice, simply stay outside of Venice itself. The Hotel Bologna has been recently refurbished in a modern and tasteful style. But its real beauty is that it's over the road from Mestre railway station and just 10 minutes from Venice station and the Grand Canal.
It's also just over the road from the bus stop that will take you to (Venice) Treviso airport for your budget flight home.

Want to go to Venice but afraid of the hotel prices there? Stay in Mestre and commute to Venice each day. We did and found it fascinating to jump on a bus each morning and go to Venice with the workers. The view of Venice from a bus on the causeway is certainly different.
