What they say is true...staying in Venice is ridiculously expensive. I'd also say it's worth staying right in the city, as opposed to taking the train in...part of visiting Venice is experiencing its "magic" -- and for this, I think you need to stay here. So we found a Rick Steves-recommended B&B with no frills within 10 minutes' walk . As long as you don't expect much, this place is definitely adequate, and a lot cheaper than nearby places...as well as just off the beaten path, so it's very quiet at night.
Minimum two-night stay. One of the rooms holds 5 people. Free internet access at the computer in the main lobby.
Unique Quality: Riccardo, the owner, grew up here...he is a ball of energy, fluent in English, and very helpful. He runs a no-frills place--basic breakfast, dark stairway up to the entrance...but the rooms are spotless, roomy enough, and full of his childhood memories. I think it was a great option for an expensive city -- and when in Venice, you shouldn't be spending much time hanging out in a hotel room, anyway!
