Hi M,

We very much liked our stay at http://www.hotelmarconi.it/ It is a 3* right at the foot of the Rialto Bridge. They might have a canal view room available at your price.

Also check www.venere.com

I suggest you go on Booking.com, click to arrange the hotels in order from 5 stars down to 1, then check for descriptions that plainly state that the hotel is on a canal and then look for doubles that are under 340 euros per night. I did it and came up immediately with Star Hotel Splendid Venice, Albergo Cavaletto & Doge Orseolo, and Albergo Benvecchiati and has several pages to go through yet. Look at the pictures of the hotel rooms and see which appeal to you, then check them out on Tripadvisor.com for reviews and also post here again asking for opinions of people who have stayed in the places you like on the website.

Our friends stayed at the Albergo Cavaletto and Doge Orseolo and liked it. We have stayed at the Violino d'Oro which has rooms facing a side canal, and we liked that. Our daughter stayed at the Locanda Orseolo which has some canal views and liked that. Hope all of this helps you decide.

P.s. the short answer to your question is Yes.

Try the Al Ponte Antico which is owned by the people that also own the very well regarded Locanda Orseolo:

Good Luck!

We stayed at the Locanda Orseolo a few years ago, and if we ever get back to Venice, we'll stay there again. It's a small hotel (some call it a B & B) so it does not have the amenities you might find in a large hotel, however, you're so close to so much that it really didn't matter for us. The location is great, there are rooms overlooking a canal, the breakfast is wonderful and most importantly, the hosts are absolutely lovely. We loved everything about it, in fact, it was the place we loved most during our trip around Italy. Check it out at Trip Advisor.....you'll get bored reading all the awesome reviews!

I suggest either the Al Ponte Antico above or the Metropole closer to San Marco.

I enjoyed my stay at the Westin Europa & Regina. The hotel itself is lovely, and it is located on the Grand Canal, directly across from the round church Santa Maria della Salute. Plus, it is only a 5 minute or so walk to Piazza San Marco. The hotel also has a bar and restaurant where you can drink or dine on a terrace overlooking the canal.

Special offers are listed on the website, including a honeymoon special with rooms beginning at 315 euros per night. The special includes flowers and a bottle of wine on arrival as well as breakfast.

Between the hotel and Piazza San Marco is Harry's Bar. If you want a pricey bellini at its bar of origin, you can pop in.
