Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our places to stay in Venice and the Veneto are not only charming but as varied and interesting as any you'll find on the internet. Most of the Venice hotels have great central locations in the city itself, but there is one, the Quattro Fontane, across the lagoon on the Lido.

Room prices in Venice are undeniably steep, but if you choose carefully and secure a room with a canal-side or lagoon view, you can have a memorable stay. Several of our recommendations, such as the American or Ca Bonvicini, have fair prices.

On the mainland within reach of Venice by car or train we have a handful of listings which might make an interesting alternative to staying in the city itself. Some discerning travellers enjoy retreating here each evening, escaping the tourists after a day's sightseeing in the city.

As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Venice and Veneto offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: pensioni, alberghi, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
