Where to stay

Hyatt Centric Murano Venice hotel

ABOVE: The Hyatt Centric Murano Venice, formerly the LaGare Hotel Venezia (shown on right), is Murano's first four-star hotel. We took this photo from the Murano Museo airport-boat and vaporetto stop, which faces the hotel.

Hotels and guesthouses

Murano has several hotels that are worth considering for a final night's stay if you have an early flight from Venice, since the Alilaguna airport boats take only 30 minutes to cover the distance from Murano to Marco Polo Airport. Visiting artists and glassmakers can put a strain on Murano's limited accommodations, so book early when possible.

Hyatt Centric Murano Venice
This four-star, 118-room design hotel opened in spring, 2013 under its previous name "LaGare Hotel Venezia." (See photo at top of page.) It's right next to the Murano Museo waterbus stop, where--from April through October--Alilaguna Linea Rossa boats from Marco Polo Airport stop on their way to the Lido and San Marco in Venice's historic center.

Hotel Al SoffiadorHotel Al Soffiador
If you're a serious shopper, you may enjoy the convenience of hauling purchases back to this small two-star hotel between visits to the local glass factories and showrooms. The Soffiador has double, triple, and quad rooms with private baths plus a bar and restaurant. (Two rooms are equipped for disabled travelers.)

Locanda Conterie signLocanda Conterie
This hotel in the "town house suites" category is a bit cheaper than the Soffiador but has earned favorable guest ratings. It has 26 air-conditioned rooms with ensuite facilities, offers Wi-Fi Internet access, and serves breakfast on a terrace in good weather. You can reach it from the Alilaguna Linea Rossa stop at Murano Museo without crossing any bridges.

Murano Palace entranceMurano Palace guests and TripAdvisor fans give exceptionally high ratings to this B&B in the island's center. The inn is hidden away in a side street near a bridge where you'll see a winged lion atop a stone column. From the Alilaguna Linea Blu airport-boat stop at Colonna, you can reach the Murano Palace without crossing any bridges. (The same boat will take you to or from the Marittima cruise terminals.)

Another excellent place to stay is the Casa Sulla Laguna guesthouse, which is small and inexpensive.

Finally, Murano has a few vacation apartments that can be rented by the night or week. Try the excellent Ca' Mazzega Murano Grand Canal View Apartments, which consist of four holiday flats near the Murano Venier ACTV station.
