Need accomodations in Venice! Please help! running out of time!

I cannot seem to find a reasonable hotel in Venice for my 2 night stay on April 13 and 14!
We are on a budget for around 180 per night (4 ppl) and want to stay in the historical Venice center. Should I also try Lido or Mestre?
Any help in suggesting a nice clean simple B&B or guest house or a hotel will be so apprciated. We are leaving for Europe next Friday and have booked everything except my Venice stay!

Hi llcc---if you would list the places you have already tried and found full (or too expensive), that would help.

Are the four people all adults, and is that 180 in dollars or euro?

Have you tried the following: Albergo Marin, Hotel Messner, Hotel Astoria, Hotel Riva, Casa Cosmo, Ca' San Vio, and/or Fondazione Levi? That last one supposedly has quad rooms for 145 euro.

It's the start of Easter weekend, and as such it's a 4-day holiday for many people. Prices are likely to be higher as well.

You could try looking on

www.lastminute.com

Good luck, and enjoy Venice!

We stayed at Hotel Lisbona.

We were really pleased with it they kept our luggage all day until our flight. All the rooms overlooked the San Moise canal and the canal did not smell at all (despite going in August). We would look out of the window and watch the gondolas go by.

It was really central and you could walk to St Marks Square in a few minutes as well as the Vaporetto and the Rialto bridge. We would certainly book here again if we went back to Venice.

We also stayed at Lido for 3 days but got fed up with going back and forward on the Vaporetto.

Hope this helps

We were pleased with the AL GAMBERO on Calle dei Fabbri on our stay in 1999. It is located between the Rialto Bridge and St Marks. Clean, updated rooms.

Casa Rezzonico in Dorsoduro has quad rooms and good reviews.

I'll check for more later...I'm going out.

http://www.ciliota.it/chisiamo_ing.htm we're staying there in early May; You get off at the S. Samuele Vaporetto Stop and it's within walking distance of Piazza San Marco. It's much lower than 180E per night per room with private bath.

llc - We recently returned from a week at Le Ville del Lido.

This is a complex of pleasant self-catering apartments on Lido island. Buffet breakfast is included.

Their listed price is € 204 per day for your dates.

Hope this helps ...

You've received some great suggestions, but many are booked up months in advance (I have yet to be able to stay at La Calcina) and as you say, time is short.

venere.com allows you to search by dates, then sort by price. It has loads of listings for Venice, and will show you specifically what's available and at what cost. Once you've found some possibilities, you can then search for reviews here and on tripadvisor.
