Mestre is cheaper then Venice to stay (but not many restaurants, Ali supermarket at Via Piave 172 has a good selection of food and drinks), this place is a easy walk to the train station, less comfortable then the Colombo, slighty cheaper, free wifi in the reception, no heathing.

We stayed for three nights. Service was excellent, restaurant was very good, wonderful Venezia atmosphere. Hotel is located on one of the canals. Rooms are a bit small (suspect this is the case for most of the hotels based on my research) BUT everything else about the hotel is first class.
We only spent one night here, and it was a comfortable stay. The rooms are very large, and the one we had was extra large. The Four Poster bed was a novelty, with great soft silky linen sheets and big windows.
Bathroom luxurious and tiled, with black marble fittings. Bath and Shower. Quality toiletries.
Breakfast was included in the price, and there was a wide range of food- hot and cold.
This hotel is within easy walking distance to Piazza San Marco, and almost next door to the Opera House.
The service was efficient and friendly.
What I also liked was that it is on a side canal, so nice to watch Gondolas go by, and easy access should you need a water-taxi. The Hotel can arrange transportation should you need help.
They have free wifi and a bar area on the rooftop, which has what they call a 'Trust Bar' - which means you help yourself to any drinks, and just put down in the ledger what you have taken, Nice outdoor sitting balcony.There are elevators in hotel for easy access.
Lovely modern fittings and quality furnishing & carpets
People sometimes ask about hotels near Venezia, and last night while dining in the ristorante called Vecia Brenta we learned it is also a hotel. Doing some research the rooms are listed at 75 Euros a night, and there is a bus stop located directly across the street.
This might make it a possibility for someone seeking a bit cheaper stay in Venezia.
The hotel is located on the Brenta Canal which stretches from Padova to Venice. During the summer there are boats that offer tourists a tour of the big villas located along the canal.
I cannot give any more information about the hotel except to tell you that the owner seems very friendly and the people coming down to eat dinner seemed very happy with things.
Check it out. Rated by many websites.
Small and family run
Quiet and Safe Area
Owner speak some English
Clean Restaurant Setting
Less expensive than average prices per person for Venezia
Great hotel and nice service. Breakfast was huge and good. But the only "but" I can tell is about the heating. It was december and we need some heating at the room but you must ask for the reception desk anytime you wanted to put the heating on and off. A little bit boring and uncomfortable.
Very near to the center, and Piazza St. Marco
After staying in several hotels during my first visits I found this private accomodation 5 minutes from Rialto Bridge and 10 minutes from San Marco.
Beeing used to the very small rooms of venecian hotels I was surprised of the relatively spacious room and the quality of the bed. The room has it's own big bathroom with a bathtub and a french bidet. It is seperated from the rest of the apartement by a door and has a big wardrobe.
If you like you can have breakfast for an additional 5 euros.
Directions from the airport:
Take bus number 5 of the company ACTV or the blue bus of ATVO to Piazzale Rome and from there the waterbus to Rialto. The other possibility is to take the waterbus to San Marco and leave at the stop Ospidale.
Arriving by train:
Take the waterbus to Rialto Bridge
Give the landlady a call and she will pick you up at the stop of the waterbus.
It's directly in the heart of Venice from where you can reach all sites within walking distance.
The lady who rents the room is very friendly. She speaks Italian, English and German fluently.
She can arrange guided tours or a trip with the gondola or excursions in the lagoon with a private boat.
It's a nonsmoker residence and it's not possible to bring pets.
This Hotel is a bout 5 minutes from Rioalto at Campo Manin. I had no problem finding it in a small sidestreet. The staff in the Hotel are very friendly and helpfull.My single room with bath was small but i was only sleeping there anyways. Breakfast was very nice with a lovely view on to a canal.I would go there again!
I say the best about this hotel is the loaction, you not far from everything.
The owner, Massimo, is a sneaky and rude person. We didn't feel comfortable at all. They also put a hold on our credit card for a month. Place is well located but they only care for the money not the clients.
In 2010 I had look at the convent below, which offered accommodation for Euro 50.00 single and Euro 80.00 for a double. The rooms are clean but spartan, and the place locks the doors at 23.00 hours, which means you have to be back by 11pm or you won't get in.
Check In is from 11 am and Check out is requested at 9am on the day of departure.
Breakfast is extra and the cost is Euro 5.00
There is no TV or air conditioning in the rooms, some rooms have a private bathroom.
The location is very good, arrival from Airport Marco polo with Alilaguna direct to Madonna Del Orto or from the Train station on foot in 10 minutes.
Although the nun who showed me around the place was very welcoming and friendly I decided not to stay there. For the same price I found a room to rent with shared kitchen and bath.
Casa Cardinal Piazza
Tel. +39 (0) 41 721 388
Fax +39 (0) 41 720 233
The Casa Cardinal Piazza occupies two famous palazzi of ancient Venetian nobility Contarini and Minelli. It is situated in
Cannareggio, a quiet district of Venice,off the beaten tourist track, yet still in the historical centre.
There some nice bars and restaurants in the vicinity frequented by locals: for example Paradiso Perduto and Al quattro Ladroni
I stayed at the Hotel Boccassini in Cannareggio in May 2011 and paid Euro 50.00 for a small single room, hotel has one star, the room was small, clean and had a washbasin - the shared shower was one door down the corridor. Double rooms are from euro 80.00 up. depending on the season. I did not try breakfast.
Nice little garden with a friendly cat. Great location, within 15 minute walking distance to Piazza San Marco and 10 minutes to the Rialto Bridge. There is a variety of Restaurants in the vicinity. Friendly receptionists who are also multi lingual.
I stayed in this foresteria for 2 weeks during a language course in Venice. It is situated at la Giudecca, near the vaporetto stop Redentore and is a part of the monastery behind Redentore church. The equipment of the rooms (I had a single one) is rather basic: bed, bedside table, wardrobe, desk, fridge, mosquito net at the window (mine had big holes, though) and private bathroom (shower and WC). No phone and TV in the room. Linen and towels were changed about twice a week during my stay. Very nice view to the monks' garden.
There is a common kitchen, a big common room with TV, a vending machine (drinks and snacks) a washing machine (about 1 €) and Wi-Fi available. You are not allowed to enter the nice garden which can be seen from the rooms. However, there is a separate garden overlooking the back of the lagoon accessible for the guests.
There is no curfew: you get keys and can come and go whenever you want.
The reception is not open all the time, however, so you should inform them before arriving! Even though, we had to wait a little bit in front of the gate before somebody opened. During my stay, I could not find out their actual opening times...
Certainly a good price for Venice in my opinion (about 40 € single, 60 € double), nice and quiet area (not that touristy, rather neighbourhoodish), great view to Redentore church (backside) and to the lagoon (from the garden)
We stayed at the Mary Hotel (Minotel) in Campo Alto on the mainland. It is only 15 minutes by bus from Piazzale Roma and is in a quiet suburban village roughly half way between the airport and Venice. There are other hotels in the area and it is more pleasant than the Mestre. The main advantage is that you get a 3 star hotel for less than a one star in Venice. Atmosphere is not as good but it makes sense if you are on a budget. Campo Alto has local shops, cafes and restaurants.
This apartment is in the Lido, only a short boat ride away from St. Mark's Square. With shores stretching 12km, it has one of the world's most attractive and exclusive beaches. At the furthest ends of Lido, facing the sea, there is a fully-functioning private airport, the Nicelli Airport, and the Golf Club Lido with 18 holes. You can take the Vaporetto from the airport to the Lido (30 minutes) and stay in an Hotel or apartment for a good price.
Transportation wasn't too bad. There seemed to be frequent taxis and waterbuses at the stop ... and we even managed to get back from Venice proper okay after a late night out.
Very affordable for the price and accommodations and a real nice apartment. It could do with a little bit better Coffee Maker but it suffices. The furniture is nice and the beds are comfortable.
Don't miss Trattoria Favorita if you are spending any time on Lido. Outside patio and garden area. Excellent food, service and ambiance.
We spent 2 nights at Albatros. It is supposed to be a 4* hotel but it should have been a 3* actually.
We were with a group of 50 people and we came here because it was booked through a travel agency.
Very basic and the reception staff not very helpful. I noticed that some of us got a suite while others not. It was a standard room they said. Ours was really big , comfortable and clean.
It is not very long away from Venice but with the daily traffic it took us more than half an hour to get to Venice. The coach moved rather slowly.
Continental breakfast and dinner very poor. You have to pay for internet access here which is something that I always demand in the hotels I book for myself if I travel alone.
I don’t think I would pick this hotel again when back to Venice!
