Did hotels that allow 3 per room!!

We are a family of 6 (adults and young adults) that want to stay three to a room (we can not afford three rooms on our budget) Does anyone know of a nice hotel in the following cities: Venice, Florence, Rome and Positano that will allow three to a room. Thanks so much for any advice.

Hi
Many hotels will provide an extra bed, for a fee, in a double room.

You might want to consider Praiano instead of Positano. The Hotel LeSirene has triples at 110-120E/night.

www.venere.it

Lists tons of hotels in virtually every city in Italy. Allows you to search by dates of travel. Includes triple and quad rooms.

Once you find hotels on the venere site that interest you, try text searching here for feedback (ie, "Hotel Casci AND Florence", etc.)

Buon viaggio!

When we went to Italy with my daughter (13 yrs. old at the time) we stayed in the following hotels where she stayed in the room with us--
Venice--Hotel Flora (request large room)
Florence--Hotel via Belvedere (room we had was very large)
I would highly recommend both hotels.

Have a great trip.

Thanks so much for everyones advice so far, I have gone on the web sites and I am in shock - hotels for 1,800.00, 800.00 EUR per night - it looks like we might have to stay home. I am going back to checking - thanks again everyone!!

You are obviously not using the right websites...three rooms shouldn't cost that much..unless you're staying at The Hassler!!!!

LSab -

If you are talking about the venere.it site I suggested, please be aware that rates shown are for your TOTAL stay. So if you've requested availability for 4 nights, you'd divide the rate shown by 4 to get the per night cost.

Hi LSab. My husband, son and I very recently stayed at the Due Torri in Rome for 245 euro/nt, The Alessandra in Florence for 191 euro/nt, and the Accademia in Venice for 278 (I think) euro/nt. Have a great trip!

Yeah, 800 Euro a night is way out of line unless you're looking at the really posh hotels. You should be able to find 2 rooms for under 200 a night total in any of those cities though it might not be in the perfect location. And 300 a night total for two should be no problem at all.

In Venice, if things are really tough, you can probably get a couple of rooms at the Locanda al Soffiador on Murano--triples run about $120 a night there breakfast and a/c included. You do have to catch a vaporetto to get to the main city--but it's only a few minutes, no longer than someone staying near the train station takes to get to the main sights.

The only other problem might be if you will be in Italy in the high season and the less expensive places in good locations have started to sell out.

Have you considered renting an apartment in each city? That's what we are doing in Florence and Venice this summer and found it to be much less expensive than most hotels. You can also save money on dining out.

I used the sites sleepinginitaly.com and venicerentals.com.

Good luck.

What's your budget?
maybe you should give us an idea of how much you are willing to spend so you don't get a bunch of suggestions for pricey hotels. 225/night doesn't seem remotely budget to me.

Where did he/she say they were looking for "budget" accomodations? They said, rather, they could not afford 3 rooms on their budget. Quite a difference.

Last August we had 3 in a room at Hotel Dolomiti in the Cannareggio area of Venice. I believe it was about 110 E per night. The rooms were large and recently redone. There is no elevator, and it is about a 15 minute walk to San Marco. We found the best food in this area.

We had 4 in a room at:
Venice - Hotel Flora 3*
Florence - Hotel Casci 2*
Rome - Santa Chiara 3*
I would recommend each of these hotels.

LSab,

Consider how long it will take for 6 people to get ready in the morning with only 2 bathrooms. I would go down a notch in price and get 3 rooms if at all possible.

I've done 1 trip with 6 people, will not do it again...

We always have to get a room for three. These are two we found last summer and I booked rather late. There were several others and they are all on web sites.

Try Hotel Bellettini. Our room there had a double bed and one single. It was quite roomy. Great location & breakfast too. www.hotelbellettini.com

LSab:

You might try: http://www.b-b.rm.it/

They offer apartments and b&b reservations that seem very reasonable.

Good Luck!
