When seeing the map, I'd prefer to stay in Cannaregio East area when I visit Venice in May. The reasons (correct me if I'm wrong), walk distance from:
- Alilaguna boat stop (Fondamente Nove) when arriving from airport.
- Rialto bridge and other main places like San Marco.
- Santa Lucia train station to continue the trip to Milan or Geneve.
So anyone knows about this area? Any suggestion on budget hotels or BB which is clean and quiet enough (I have a baby)?
If you mean the area surrounding Ca D'Oro, I stayed there and loved the area.Lots of little restaurants,gelato,coffee shops.It takes about 20 minutes to walk to San Marco but it's a beautiful walk.I understand there are some quiet areas in Castello tucked away from the crowds but still within 10 minutes walk to San Marco. I've also stayed in San Marco a bit away from the crowds at Locanda Barbarigo. It was alot cheaper 2 years ago.The Ca Berardi gave me a price this year of 90Euros and is supposed to be good - nice family run place.
Can anybody please suggest a few good 2*/3* hotels near St Mark's Square in Venice ? I am looking into the web but I guess a few tips from experienced travelers will help. I will stay for 2 nights.
I stayed in the Bonnvecciati which is close to St Marks - it was recently upgraded to 4* but there may be some decent deals in the off season.
Nice hotel if you can stretch to it.
I have stayed in Hotel Casanova which is just a block off the square. It's a decent 3 star hotel and the rate wasn't too high considering it was Venice and right next to St Mark's. They offer a good breakfast. The rooms are a decent size with private bathroom.
we stayed at Locanda Barbarigo which is about 5-10 mins walk from st marks but in a quiet canal.it is 3 star and as we booked along way in advance we got the suite for £77/night which I didnt think too bad for venice. It was a lovely hotel, excellent room s (very big with a big bathroom with bath - a rarity i understand in Venice!) and the staff were lovely - very friendly. Thet have a webpage on venice.by at http://www.veniceby.com/barbarigo/ but contact them directly for the best price.
