Venice Italy Hotels
Venice Italy hotels are a mishmash
of styles and quality, of price and views. If you want
cheap, you can stay in a pensione, which ranges in quality
somewhere between a youth hostel and a hotel, or any number
of small inns along the waterways that provide all the
necessary functions of a hotel. But these options are
generally considered to be a poor type of accommodation
in Venice. This is an increasingly cramped city, and the
continual glut of tourists results in a lack of space
in many Venice Italy hotels. So, if you want to stay in
any accommodation in Venice with a good reputation you
should definitely make plans in advance. And if you come
during Carnevale, hopefully you are the type that can
go a week without sleep, because lodging for next year's
festival is probably already booked.
Though you are pretty much admitting that you have an immense travel budget by traveling to Venice, there are still some excellent cheap hotels in Venice. Unless, of course you want to marvel at the beauty of the Grand Canal at sunset, in which case you'll have to step up to one of the expensive ones.
Hotel Danieli Venice
The only one of the cheap hotels in Venice with such a view is the Hotel Galleria, and that's only if you reserve well in advance and have a liberal definition of the term "cheap." Otherwise, you'll have to stay in one of the many luxury Venice Italy hotels that the city has to offer. Like the Hotel Danieli, a rambling showcase that was designed to house kings. Overlooking - as all great Venetian hotels do - the Grand Canal, this hotel has stained glass and ornate balconies for what seems like forever. This is the most affordable of the deluxe Venice Italy hotels, unless you are willing to spend over quadruple digits for a one-night stay at the Gritti Palace or Hotel Cipriani.
If you are afraid of culture shock when traveling to Venice, don't stay in the Hotel American. Though it sports reasonable rates and a great location, the name is something of a misnomer. It is Venetian to the end, with aged murals and hospitable terraces overlooking the Grand Canal.
In fact, the cheap hotels in Venice are commonly the
hardest to find. Whether or not this is on accident is
for you to judge. But if you search nearby Campo Santo
Stefano, you will find a nice little accommodation in
Venice called the Locanda Florito, clean and functional,
with minuscule rates. The Locanda Montin is another inexpensive
inn, quaint and old-fashioned, with a remarkable restaurant
attached. Or the Locanda Leon Bianco, a converted palazzo
near the Rialto bridge,
where you might be able to see the Grand Canal if you
get one of the three suites available.
