Hotel recommendations in Venice | Staying overnight in Venice costs a lot of money. Even if especially the offer of hotel rooms in the centre of the lagoon city is high, an enormous demand pushes up the prices. Those who absolutely want to experience the romantic flair of this unique city also at night should have a look at my recommendations in Top 10 hotels.
If you would like to stay a little longer in the world-famous city on the Adriatic Sea and are looking for exceptional accommodation, you will find hotel tips for the nearby lagoon islands of Murano, Burano or Torcello in the individual articles. Here it is quieter, more relaxed and very close to the Italian way of life. Unfortunately, it is not cheap either, just like the chic seaside resort Lido di Venezia, for which there are also numerous suggestions for the accommodation of different kinds on the corresponding page.
It gets cheaper in Mestre, a part of Venice that is located on the mainland. The disadvantage is that Mestre with its 200.000 inhabitants has nothing in common with the historical city Venice. The advantage is the direct connection by train and bus to the centre of the lagoon city. Here, the prices for overnight stays are much cheaper. Also, parking possibilities are much cheaper. From most of the following suggestions, you will arrive in the centre of Venice after about 30 minutes.
