Hotels in Venice

We will be needing a hotel in Venice for May 2007 for several nights. We will need four rooms. Any suggestions? It is very costly and we are looking for something a little more resonable. Bathrooms in rooms would be a plus of course!

Assuming you want four DOUBLE rooms, can you post your per-night budget?

I just don't want to pay 1000.00 and 800.00 Euros I saw in some places.
Several hundred would be more like it.

We love the Accedemia, but don't know how much it is. It was reasonable in 2000. But you would have to book immediately, they fill up way ahead

It is easy to find things for less than 300euro and even close to 200 euro so if that fits your budget then just do a search here for Venice hotels and you will find a number of choices. If you want to get under 150 that would be more difficult. We stayed at Locanda Orseolo last year and loved it for 220 euro. I also looked at Locanda Barbarigo and that was around 165 euro last year. Hotel violino was also reasonable. There are dozens of hotels there to choose from.

GetOutThere,

Do you already know which Sestiere (section) you want lodging in? If you look at a map of Venice, you will see the name of each Sestiere, e.g. San Marco, Dorsoduro, San Polo, etc., and, of course, there is the Lido.

On our first trip to Venice, we stayed at the Flora Hotel in the San Marco section. It is a lovely hotel, in a quiet location; however, we never really investigated outside the San Marco area.

This year, we stayed in Dorsoduro and enjoyed our visit much more over the last trip. The Casa Rezzonico was the hotel we stayed, and it is located on a quiet canal.

locando orseola definitely. We enjoyed it immensely as we were there last month.
We booked 11 months early and got the last room!!

We stayed at the AL GAMBERO on CALLE DEI FABBRI STREET on a trip in 1999. Reasonable and the rooms had recently been remodeled with new bathrooms. This street runs between Rialto and St Marks so the location was also good.

With a need for four rooms, the best way to keep it reasonable would be to book an apartment. We paid 175 E and 160 E, respectively, for canal side rooms at La Calcina (incl breakfast). Rates might be lower in May, and it's a great place. One place you will not have trouble finding in Venice!!

Another hearty vote for Locanda Orseolo.

In 2002 we stayed in the annex of the Hotel Bernardi Semenzato (http://www.hotelbernardi.com/home_en.htm)
and paid 170 euros total for 2 double rooms that included breakfast. The hotel is in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood and the annex is very nice -- much better than the main hotel building.

Locanda Orseolo seems to be fantastic no doubt. But nowadays with their reservations being at least a year in advance or whatever, perhaps it's time to investigate other nice hotels. There are quite a few others that come highly recommended per Trip Advisor.
