Venice hotels under100E?

Are there any nice, clean hotels that you are within walking distance to sightsee, but are under 100E?

Venice is a very expensive city, and it is hard to find a good but also cheap hotel. If you look at the site from Go Travel.nl you can search for hotels, but you can also send them an e-mail, and they will search for you personally. It is a very good site, and the people who work there really do their job!

Oh come now, Jacky, don't be modest. We know from your other postings that the "people who work there" is YOU.
I think this is called advertising.

We stayed at Hotel Bernardi last June for 80 euro night. Very clean, good neighborhood, we loved it.

Try HOtel Ala. It's about $112 American dollars.

WillTravel suggested this one to me:

http://www.diaconiavaldese.org/venez...ia/index_e.htm

"Foresteria Valdese di Venezia"

which is #3 on Trip Advisor.

I've not checked any of these yet, but are there others that have not been mentioned? I'm doing some research. My Time Out guide gives a few also.

Interestingly Locanda Al Leon (on eurocheapo.com) is not actually such a cheapo. Venere quotes 159 euros a night for a double for 9/3-9/5.

I guess I'll look into the others. But I'm encouraged to see that reasonable hotels still seem to be available even though it's the Film Festival.

I e-mailed these yesterday:

Ca Del Dose
San Samuele
Ai Do Mori
Foscari
Foresteria Valdese di Venezia

For some reason I didn't e-mail Bernardi or Al Campaniel. Maybe I should. I did find Bernardi a little further out.

First two are booked for 9/3-9/5. No word yet from the last three. So maybe it's more difficult than I thought. I wouldn't mind getting a few more recs just in case. I think that I've already looked at a few and these were the ones I wanted to check on the first round (e-mailed a few more than usual because I figured that it was the Film Festival weekend).

By the way, I don't think that everything on my list was under 100 E -- in particular, Ca Del Dose charges more, I think, but it's a moot point as the hotel is booked. I e-mailed to see what something near San Marco would cost.

Depending on the type of room and the season, some rooms at Pensione La Calcina are that price. www.lacalcina.com it's a fantastic hotel but very popular and books up early.

Thanks for the rec., suze. It's #3 on TripAdvisor (Foresteria is #3 under "specialty lodging," which I hadn't noticed earlier).

A single with bath is 96 euros, supposedly.

I looked at the map and it's away from the Grand Canal on "the other side." How long is it to walk from the Accademia stop?

I'm still looking to hear from the rest -- also e-mailed Bernardi and Campaniel and thinking about calling Foresteria later.

I'm not sure if Foresteria is so viable because the desk is open in the morning and from 6-8 and I'm not sure when I'm arriving yet.

Ok, not looking good.

I e-mailed and then called La Calcina, and singles and doubles are all booked. She had actually read the e-mail and asked me if I just sent one, and I said yes.

Foscari is also booked.

Ai Do Mori is fully booked. (The person who answered spoke perfect English, by the way.)

I need to wait another half an hour before I can call Foresteria.

So that leaves Al Campaniel and Bernardi on my list, which I both e-mailed. I guess I'll need to call for fast response.

Hotel Europa (it also has a sister hotel) is a block and a half from St. Marks, had clean comfy big rooms, and we paid around $100 Euros for it in 2003. It may be more now, but believe me, a nice hotel in a central location is hard to find near $100 in Venice. I thought I had a pretty good search, and that was the best I could do.

Good luck,

Jules

Thanks Jules.

I'm realizing that it's not as easy as I thought.

But I called Al Campaniel, and there's a superior double at 105 euros. The cancelation policy is 7 days. In the meantime I'll look at other suggestions that may come in in the meantime.

This hotel doesn't have a single review on TripAdvisor, which is why I'm a little hesitant (I'd be booking it based solely on reviews on Fodor's).

I guess I can wait and call Foresteria and see what I'll do about a backup for now. If Foresteria is full I probably should take Al Campaniel in the meantime.

Do you know if there's a website for Europa, Jules? Or a phone number?

I typed Europa Venice into tripadvisor and get Europa & Regina (Westin), which I think is a more upscale hotel -- can't imagine it goes for 100 euros -- unless it's truly low season.

Thanks.
