Need simple lodging Rome, Cinque Terra, Siena, Venice

Going to Italy for the first time and want to book rooms in advance. Want clean, simple and not too $$. Any favorites? Traveling by train.

Hi iluv,

You need to define "not too $$". That means many things to many people! Exactly how much is your nightly budget?

Here is a web site that's very helpful - start here: www.venere.com. You can sort by Stars or by $$$.

Two I can personally recommend that fit my budget:

Albergo Paganelli* - Venice on the Grand Canal very near Piazza San Marco

Hotel Giardino Rome** - Rome, great location, wonderful owner

Buon viaggio!

You could stay at convents in Rome and Venice, and possibly Siena.

Agree with Dayle that "not too $$" is too vague. That said, I rented apartments from realrome.com and through cross-pollinate.com in Rome and both were reasonable. The cross-pollinate one was quite a while ago and more barebones, but suited us perfectly.

In Venice, I've stayed at La Calcina and Ca della Corte. Both fit my budget.
cadellacorte.com
lacalcina.com

In Siena, I stayed at the Hotel Duomo.

In Cinque Terre, we stayed in Corniglia and got a place by calling a Signora Spora. She was in a guidebook and we hadn't made reservations. We just called place after place until one had a vacancy. Don't recommend this method nowadays, though.

Good luck and enjoy your tip.
