Advise needed.
A good place to stay and enjoy Venice.
Arriving on train.May
Only need air conditioning and breakfast.
About $ 150-250.
Easy to get to and from.
Not a ghost town at night.
Thanx in advance.

Looks like you got stung by the hornet!

Do an advanced search on this forum. There are many, many recommendations for hotels in Venice. Venice is small and even if your hotel is in a quiet area, a 10 minute walk will bring you to cafes, restaurants. I can't give you a recommendation since I don't spend $150 on hotels per night.

I don't think you will need AC in May. I've been to Venice in June and didn't need it and I hate hot weather.

You want a hotel to get to and from where? If you have an area in mind you should post that.

We really do need more info. What part of town are you looking for? Is there something you want to be near? Most hotels will provide breakfast so please let us know what your other priorities are.

These are some of my favorite hotels in Venice. All are well located and should be in your price range for 2 people-

Here's one that we liked:

Rooms meet all your requirements and it's very close to Rialto bridge and Piazza San Marco.

Also, check Trip Advisor and find the hotels in your $ range. If you see a couple or 5, list them back here and we can let you know who's been there.

If you pronounce hornet as French, that poster becomes even more creepy...

Thank you everyone .
Thanx zoecat.
As to imhornet ,this is a travel forum.
Sound like there is uresolved anger issues.
Me thinks that perhaps you should go #$%#@ youself.
It might take away some of that nastiness.

To continue.
I truly dont know what is a good location in Venice.
Would like to be able to explore most of the town.
Trip advisor just manages to confuse.

You need to do some more homework.
If you looked at a map, you would see how relatively
small Venice is; ergo, everywhere is a good location
save for Lido only because it requires a vaporetto
to and fro entailing travel time.

Seriously, captbuzz, look at some on TA in your price range and then report them back here. As Rhea58 says, it's a small area.

I am older and my hub and I aren't so much into the night life. Can other posters suggest a general area? San Palo? Around Fenice? Would that be helpful?

You've been given 8 hotel recommendations here - don't any of them suit you?

There's hardly an area in Venice that is inconvenient. It doesn't take long to walk from anywhere to San Mark's square which is the focal point in Venice. For example, if you stay near Rialto bridge or Accademia you can be at St. Mark's square in 5 to 7 minutes. That's pretty central.

Look at a map and you will see how small Venice is.

Capt Buzz - I was exactly where you were a month ago. Here's the deal. Most tourii going to Venice want a Hotel near St Marco's Square, ergo the prices at any Hotel saying they are right next to that are expensive - there are many hotels a bit more to the west and north of the square area that are more reasonable. I'm staying at Pensione Guerrato in May fo rtwo nights - based upon a reasonable price - multiple recommendations in guide books and central location. Very close to the Rialto Market and vaporetto stops, which is probably what you are looking for. Prompt resonses to requests for info. sorry I can't tell you more - but I suggest you check out www.pensioneguerrato.it

Here is the place we stayed in Venice:
e-mail: [email protected]
web page: http://www.provincia.venezia.it/levi

It did not have air conditioning but did have breakfast. It is right next to the bridge that crosses the Grand Canal near the Accademia. It's an easy walk to Piazza San Marco, and an easy walk to anywhere else. I believe it's a music school that rents out rooms. We paid 140 euro a night for a room for four people.

We liked Hotel Bisanzio‎, just East of Pizza St Marcos. This was our first trip to Europe some 10 years ago (we've gone since and are much more experienced travelers). One of the benefits of Bisanzio for us (before we found reserving rooms on the internet has been trouble-free for 4 subsequent trips), was that it is a Best Western. Hold on--it's nothing like a US Best Western! In fact, the only indication is a small (maybe 8" x 6") Best Western sign near the fron desk. In all other respects, it's a wholly Italian hotel and, as I mentioned, very well located. The benefit to us then as novice travelers was that we could call the US Best Western 800 number and reserve our room over the telephone without having to enter into what would have been then an intimidating conversation with a real Italian.

We are obviously more experienced travelers than we are typists. It's Piazza San Marco, and the hotel is just east therefrom.
