Venice accomodations

Hi Fodorites!

Does anyone have any recommendations for budget, yet good ,hotels/B&Bs in Venice? We will be there in October, which I think is "high season" and have so far found costs to be beyond our expectations. It is our first time there.
Thanks,
Geri

Hopefully you'll get some good answers, but regarding "high season", I'm beginning to think that Venice like other places lives in high season except for two hours -- 3 to 5 AM on November 28.

Venice is unique and unfortunately you must pay for the experience.

Whitelake--what are your expectations. What do you consider "budget"?

Whitelake: As you have found out already, October is the high season for hotel rates in Venice-rates don't go down until the first week of November.

That said, try this place: HOTEL ABBAZIA
www.abbaziahotel.com

160 Euros for a standard double-fantastic place, really, wonderful personnel-an oasis of calm that is literally steps from the train station-built on the remains of a former monastery (and THIS is what I love about Venice and Italy in general-thousand year old dwellings, monasteries, convents, all SORTS of funky grand accomodation you can experience-renovated for YOU, the traveler!)

Lovely peaceful little garden terrace where you can have breakfast-if I didn't do the apartment thing-this is where I'd stay.

Whitelake, 3 of us stayed in this B&B last May for 110 Euros:
Ca'turelli -- we booked it through www.veniceby.com. Look under B&Bs.

It is in Dorsoduro, small, clean and quiet. Some friends who were in Venice for their first time also stayed there about a week before us, and they thought it was a great location for their introduction to Venice...

If you want to spend a little more, I really loved this charming little hotel we stayed at on a previous trip:
www.casamartini.it

You feel as if you are staying in the lovely apartment of a Venetian family, which is more or less what you are doing!

We stayed at this B &B last month for 100 euros. Very lovely home and fabulous breakfast. Easy walk to the Ca D'oro vaporetto stop.
Highly recommend.

don't know if this helps, but you might search for Ira's trip report of Italy.

He stayed in an apartment, I think, and it sounded reasonable and well-located.

I'll see if I can find it and top it for you.--MP

We paid €550 for a week in their top floor duplex suite, with breakfast on the terrace (with canal view), midway between Rialto and Piazza S. Marco.

We were very happy with our stay there.
