Where to Stay in Venice

Hi, I'm flying in from London to Venice around noon, will have a day trip to Venice but taking train the next day to Florence. Where should be the best and convenience hotel to stay for the night?

I would think around the Station area, easy for your departure to Florence, a shame it is such a short stay, Venice has such a lot to offer, from the Airport you can get a Bus to Piazzale Roma,the Santa Lucia Station area is near by, there are a lot of reasonable Hotels in this area,

Look at www.venere,com for Hotels, you can enter the date and your budget,

I'd stay at Best Western Mestre if I were you

Best Western Mestre aka Best Western Bologna aka Hotel Bologna

http://www.hotelbologna.com/

Right in front of the Mestre rail station

Very convenient if you have luggage and are staying only for 1 night

.

Or if you want to brave the vaporetto with your luggage, stay at Hotel Bernardi

www.hotelbernardi.com/eng/how-to-reach-us/

.

Mind you, I've never been to Venice but plan to go there next year

And those two hotels are on my list

.

Good luck

Agree with JaySaiuw: I would recommend staying at a hotel in Mestre, near the Mestre railway station, where you get a much better hotel room for your money. Plus, you won’t have to carry heavy luggage aboard crowded vaporetti, across stepped bridges, and up narrow staircases to get to your hotel room.

Below are four excellent, inexpensive four-star hotels in Mestre that come with a bountiful free buffet breakfast. Have a look at the reviews of people who stayed at these hotels.

The Best Western Hotel Bologna, directly in front of the Mestre railway station, which Jay recommended.

Hotel Ambasciatori: A bus stops right across the street from the Ambasciatori Hotel every eight minutes that will take you to Piazzale Roma in fifteen minutes.

The Hotel Plaza is situated in front of the Mestre railway station.

The Hotel Tritone, near the Mestre railway station.

At the Marco Polo airport there is an ATVO bus (€6) that will take you to the Mestre train station in 17 minutes. (Venice Marco Polo Airport-Mestre—Fly Bus-Express Service)
