Need a Good Place and affordable palce to stay in Venice

As I mentioned a couple of months ago my family and I are traveling to Paris, Venice, and Rome 2 full weeks. I am trying to find a good and affordable place to stay in Venice June 8th to the 11th, 2013. If you know of any good place please let me know. Thanks

How many in your party? What is your budget? What location within (or outside of) Venice do you prefer?

gracie - a good place to start is Trip advisor.

find Venice, put in your dates, then select for price. once you find a few places you like the look of, come back here and see what we think.

posting the links to them will make life easier too.

You could look here for possibilities and narrow down your choices which readers might recognize:

We spent a few days in Venice two years ago. See my report at www.rimerson.com. Scroll down for the trip reports. We found we could do Venice in two full days - three nights. Venice is still the worlds most beautiful city.

Second Annhig's suggestion: I now use TripAdvisor as my first and sometimes only resource in lodging. It tells you exactly what the hotels are like, where they are, and what they cost, and you can then book the one you want using the various services (Booking.com, Venere, Expedia). We have been using Booking.com most as its prices are at least as good as any other site.

FWIW, we've stayed in Venice twice and both times in the City. At nite, it changes as all the tour buses and train travelers leave. One place we liked a lot was relatively near the train station and Piazza Roma car park, and if you like, I can probably track it down. But I would recommend you stay there as opposed to on the mainland.

Second roblm's comment as to its being the most beautiful city, at least the most beautiful that we've seen. I might take a bit more time--maybe three days because you should visit the islands too. Venice itself gets frantic during the day, and we've inserted a visit to Torcello into our trips so that we can relax and walk around without fighting hoards of people, have a nice lunch, and see the other islands on the way out or in.

We stayed at the HOTEL ALEX. Definitely budget 3 star, but clean, comfortable and central.
