Where are the best places to stay in Venice?
Best cheap hotels in Venice
With space being limited and an unfavourable exchange rate to the euro, cheap hotels in Venice aren't too easy to come by, but they can be found.
We generally find "cheap" in Venice (staying within the city on the lagoon) means paying $130–$150 per night in peak season (April to September) for a private room, which may not always come with an en suite. If you travel in the cooler months, from November to March, you may even be able to nab a room around the $100 per night mark, or less.
Rooms at Eurostars Residenza Cannaregio are well reviewed by previous guests and at the time of writing, were available for less than $100 a night in the off-season. Ca Dell'Arte, which is only 750 metres from Piazza San Marco and rated as "Excellent" on TripAdvisor, is available for a similar price.
Alternatively, staying at a hostel in Venice is a way to keep costs down on accommodation. The trendy Generator Venice and Casa Accademia both offer affordable accommodation in the city, with private rooms at the latter available for well below $100 per night.
Many of the budget-friendly places to stay in Venice aren't, well, in Venice. Cheap accommodation is widely available in Mestre, the closest mainland part of Italy to Venice proper. It's attached to the islands in the lagoon by a car and rail bridge, where you can transfer to the sites Venice is famous for.

Best boutique hotels in Venice, Italy
Opulent, decked out with heavy linens and with plenty of golden finishes, traditional Venician hotels have a unique charm that's totally different to a generic anywhere-in-the-world chain hotel room.
Situated right on the Grand Canal, The Gritti Palace,A Luxury Collection Hotel is just that. It has received accolades from Conde Nast Traveller and Michelin, while thousands of TripAdvisor reviews have placed it within the top hotels to stay at in Venice.
Boutiques in Venice don't come cheap, with rooms often going for $500 or more, especially if you're looking for a view. But we found the quaint Savoia & Jolanda with rates for as little as half of that.

Alternative Venice accommodation options
A hotspot on the European backpacking trail, Venice has a fair share of backpackers accommodation. Like most cheap accommodation in the city, to save more you'll need to stay in Mestre. Luckily, this is also where some of the best-reviewed hostels are located, like Anda Venice and Wombats City Hostel Venice Mestre, which are both within walking distance of the train station.
You can also book an Airbnb in Venice, which will likely cost you less than a hotel room, making it another good option for those looking for cheap accommodation in Venice. We found charming canal-side apartments from less than $200 per night.
