"Can I change my Venice hotel reservation?"
When you've booked a hotel that's hard to reach, here's what do do.
In our No. 1 hotel warning article, we explain why choosing the wrong hotel or apartment location in Venice can be a costly, frustrating mistake. Disadvantages include:

You have two options:
Assuming that you're able to change your reservation, here are our suggestions on where to stay:
If you're arriving or departing by air:
Look for a hotel near Piazzale Roma (where airport buses and land taxis arrive in central Venice). See 10 hotels near airport buses or the Piazzale Roma listings from our Venice Hotel Directions.
This advice works for both Venice Marco Polo International Airport and the smaller Treviso Airport (which is used by many Ryanair and Wizzair flights).
Another option, if your flights are at Marco Polo Airport, is to travel to and from the city center on an Alilaguna airport boat. Alilaguna has boat stops at many points in central Venice, so you can avoid long walks over multiple bridges by using the Alilaguna airport boat listings from our Venice Hotel Directions.
Also see our hotel listings for Early-Morning Flights from Venice Marco Polo Airport if you're leaving town at the crack of dawn.
If you're arriving or departing by train:
Browse the illustrated listings in our Venice Railroad Station Hotels article. (These listings are for Venezia Santa Lucia, the main railroad station in central Venice.)
If you're arriving or departing by car:
Read our articles on Parking in Venice and Venice hotels with parking.
