Venice Bed and Breakfasts (2-star)
Venice Accommodations Index
Historic Center: 2-Star B&B
This new guesthouse has double and triple rooms; the cheaper doubles have shared
bath. Ai Bareteri is one block off the Mercerie, the main shopping thoroughfare
between the Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge.
Hardly any tourists stay in Sant' Elena, a residential district near the tip of
the historic center. The location is out of the way unless you're attending
football games at the
Stadio Pierluigi Penzo, but you may find it convenient if you're dividing your time between
sightseeing in town and swimming on the Lido.
You can easily walk to this B&B from the Piazzale Roma or the railroad station
if you aren't hauling too much luggage. Once you've arrived, you're bound to
like the neighborhood: It's near the Campo Santa Margherita, where you'll find
restaurants, shops, the wonderful Doge gelato shop, and even a supermarket. The
Corte Contarini has one double room with a shared bath.
We're not especially fond of Giudecca, which is across the ship canal from the
historic center of Venice, but it's worth considering if you're looking for
peace and quiet and have purchased a vaporetto tourist ticket that offers
unlimited rides. The De Zorzi has moderate rates, and you can always use your
savings to buy drinks or an expensive dinner at the nearby
The Ca' D'Oro vaporetto stop is just a few meters from the Locanda Novo
in Canareggio, near the shops and restaurants of the Strada Nova and within easy
walking distance of the Rialto Bridge. Rooms include doubles, triples, quads,
If you're traveling with children or are on a tight budget, you can use extra
beds to squeeze in one or two more bodies at this B&B in Santa Croce.
The historic Venetian Ghetto is just
around the corner from the reasonably priced Trinit�, which is within easy
walking distance of the Santa Lucia railroad station.
This B&B's one air-conditioned double room has a bathroom that's shared with the
owner. The building is a restored 16th Century monastery near the Riva de San
Biasio vaporetto stop in Santa Croce.
