We were in Venice in December, and we stayed at The Amadeus which is very close to the train station. We paid !120.00 360,000 Lire. The room was clean, good-sized, and it had a pretty view of the courtyard, behind the hotel. It was our first time to Venice (won't be the last!) The region was the Cannaregio. I found the hotel online, and made reservations in August for our trip in December. We'd stay there again.

I have booked at a Summit Hotel called Laguna Palace. It sounds great and is affordable if you book through Summit's website- there is a special rate of 125.00USD for a room with 2 twins. The only thing is I can't figure out exactly where it is. The maps look like it may be on the tip of Murano close to San Michelle. But isn't San Michelle a graveyard? The place is supposed to be new and a sprawling resort with a three buildings. I'm going in March. I know I am not much help because I am in the same stuggle, Dorothy. Has anyone heard of this place?

The Laguna Palace is in Marghera's marina (Mestre). Not exactly in Venice, Jenna.

Dorothy,
I just checked www.placestostay.com for 4/14, and the penthouse suite at the Atlanta Augustus was 76.00 Euros. The picture on their website doesn't do it justice.
http://www.hotelatlanta.net/ It is a fairly small room with modern furniture (queen bed), a loft, and a blue high half-round ceiling. The bathroom was all marble with brass fixtures. We had a great rooftop patio with chairs and a view over the roofs and the lagoon to Venice. The place was very clean and they offerend a reasonable brekfast. beach and boat stop are walking distance (5-7 minutes); there are restaurants and cafes nearby, which the owners recommended.
Honestly, I think you should see venice at least once in your life. Other options are staying on the mainland and making it a daytrip (e.g. check www.karenbrown.com for some nice B&B's).

If you are going to Venice before 3/31/02, the Metropole (4 star) has a rate of 155 euro for a double room. Pretty good deal for a great hotel.

Dorothy,

I have just booked the Alcyone Hotel for my boss for 3 nights at the beginning of April, at a cost of 120 Euros per night through a company called HotelConnect http://www.go-fly.com/templates/Thir...ge&language=EN

As Kelly had recommended it further up the post, I thought you might be interested. Haven't stayed there myself, but others have recommended it.

Just trying to help .....

I also stayed at the Albergo Guerrato a couple years ago and thought it was very nice, considering the price. Very clean with a good breakfast and we could see the canal from our window (mind, we had to lean out a little) and our window overlooked the market. The owners were fantastic! So nice and willing to give directions, make reservations, ect. They even helped us avoid a train strike, one that would have caused us to miss our flight home.

Good luck and happy traveling, even if you decide to skip Venice.

I don't know when you're traveling, but the Luna Hotel Baglioni, located a block from San Marco, is offering a great package. The rate is 209 - 265 Euros (depending on when and on booking agent - Leading Hotels, Summit, maybe ICFAR)and includes: full breakfast, afternoon tea, champagne, museum passes, and, if available, a canal view. I've never stayed there, but hear it's quite nice (4+ - 5 star), and the location is great. It's a little more than some of the others, but it sounds like it's well worth it!
